Be vigilant; no one can make a fool out of you. It’s often said that both good and bad individuals exist in any community or society. Those who contribute positively bring honor to their community, state, and country. However, those who exhibit traits of insanity, stubbornness, arrogance, fraudulence, or engage in illegal activities have no place in the human class and should be expelled. Remember, those involved in illegal tasks are enemies of humanity and pose a threat to the country.
Every religion teaches truthfulness, caring for one another, living for the whole of humanity, respecting women, and protecting children from societal evils. People spreading illegality and attempting to legitimize unlawful actions for personal gain should be punished under the law and excluded from society.
In recent times, scams have been on the rise in the Kashmir Valley. Despite the valley’s rich history and the kindness of its people, scams threaten its identity. The valley, renowned for its beauty, has always welcomed tourists from around the world. Miscreant individuals have no place here, tarnishing the valley’s image. The ‘pir vaer’ holds the teachings of great mystics and religious scholars who advocated for unity, equality, and mutual respect among people of all religions.
Scammers come in various forms, and different suggestions exist regarding the rise of scams in the valley. Factors such as unemployment, lack of counseling, involvement in illicit drugs, lower income expectations, moral ignorance, and the desire for a luxurious life contribute to these issues. Competition can also drive some to engage in fraudulent activities. To combat scams and societal evils, one should keep personal details, especially banking information and OTPs, confidential.
In today’s technologically advanced era, digital transactions are prevalent, and it’s crucial to remain vigilant. A recent scam of approximately 60 crores in the valley highlights the need for people to be cautious and not fall for get-rich-quick schemes. Success stories of renowned millionaires often involve hard work and dedication; shortcuts come with risks, similar to share markets.
Social media plays a significant role in spreading unauthorized information. YouTubers and social media influencers should refrain from promoting dubious money-making tricks. Innocent people often lose valuable assets due to such misleading promotions. Before investing or trusting anyone, consulting with government officials, such as the police, is advisable.
Individuals should verify information and not blindly trust others with their investments. Avoid being easily swayed, and take proactive steps to protect yourself from potential scams. Don’t let anyone fool you and keep yourself informed to avoid falling victim to fraudulent activities.”
