Dr. Farooq Abdullah visits Ganderbal, greets people on Mela Kheer Bhawani 

Appreciates party functionaries for holding refreshment camp 

Srinagar, 14 June: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President Dr. Farooq Abdullah Friday visited Mela  Kheer Bhawani which is  being celebrated with religious fervor at Tulmulla, Ganderbal. 

Party president met devotees on the occasion and felicitated them on the observance of the annual festival. “The festival is a glaring example of hindu muslim unity. Festivals like these bring people together and help bring the two communities together. This particular festival reflects the inter religious camaraderie and communal harmony in a state like that of ours. Our state in particular the valley has always been an immaculate illustration of unity in diversity of cultures, faiths and traditions. I hope for an early return of our Kashmiri pandit brethren. The pluralistic culture of Kashmir is incomplete without our Kashmiri pandit brethren,” he said adding, “May the occasion increase the prospects of peace and prosperity in J&K & Ladakh. I also look forward to a time when Kashmiri pandits will live alongside their Kashmiri Muslim brethren in the valley.”

Party president was accompanied by Provincial president Nasir Aslam Wani, Dr. Sameer Koul, Israr khan. He also appreciated the party’s local unit functionaries led by Incharge constituency Sheikh Gayas Ud Din for holding a refreshment camp for the devotees on the occasion.
