Prejudice against the traditional use of forest areas has no basis. Comment.

Answer:

It can be explained with the help of an example. The great Himalayan Park contains Alpine meadows which were grazed by sheep in summer. Nomadic shepherds drove their flocks up from the valley every summer. When the National Park was formed this practice was banned. Because of no grazing, the grass first grows very tall and then falls over on the ground preventing fresh growth. Hence, the traditional use was helpful for the forest maintenance.
