Islamabad village located in district Poonch was declared as a model village by the Govt of J&K. It means the village besides having basic facilities will also have luxury facilities like, playground, marriage hall and a shopping complex. These facilities were provided and constructed here, but in ground there has been gross violations and the shopping complex,  marriage hall and community center is in pathetic situation. 10 years have been passed, there is neither any furniture, nor has it been used once. People demand that the space can used for a school or for a health center.

“The marriage hall and community center is in shambles. It has been constructed in year 2002 and since then it has not been made functional. Instead of marriage hall, if this space could be used for health center it would be helpful”‘ says Fayaz Ahmad, a local resident.
