Srinagar, June 8: Jammu & Kashmir Waqf Board (JKWB) chairperson Dr DarakhshanAndrabi Wednesday appealed to the civil society groups and the religious preachers to emphasize on creating an atmosphere wherein the designs of subversive and communal and divisive elements are defeated and they are thrown out of our society so that we are able to present our real inclusive face to the world of humanity.
“For lasting peace in J&K, we need to restore the communal harmony of our society which was torn apart in the early nineties by separatists & subversive elements and make sure that every displaced Kashmiri returns to the valley,” said Dr Andrabi.
Andrabi said this while speaking to the media at KheerBhawani, Ganderbal.
Jammu & Kashmir Waqf Board (JKWB) established a welcome pandal for the pilgrims of Mela Mata KheerBhawani at the shrine Campus in Tulmulla in Ganderbal district.
A statement from the JKWB said that juices were offered to every pilgrim on his entrance into the campus by the Waqf Board.
This was the first of its kind initiative of J&K Waqf. DarakhshanAndrabi, the chairperson of the J&K Waqf Board remained present on the pandal for the day along with the in-charge Chief Executive Officer of Waqf Board IshtiaqMohiuddin and other staff.
Such a gesture was highly appreciated by the pilgrims and the Shrine Management Committee. Dr DarakhshanAndrabi held interactive sessions with the pilgrims, tourists, management body and the representatives of various government departments.
Dr DarakhshanAndrabi said that such festivals and gatherings reflect the real inclusive face of Jammu & Kashmir.
“Kashmiri Hindus are the equal stakeholders of everything and those who are trying to create a vicious atmosphere to sabotage the rehabilitation and return of the displaced community are the enemies of humanity and don’t belong to our inclusive cultural traditions. We cannot afford to let them succeed in their divisive terrorist mindset. Protection of minorities is not the responsibility of the government only but of the common majority community members too,” said the Waqf Board Chairperson.
Dr Andrabi assured the community leaders and representatives that everything will be done by the government to ensure their safety and their resettlement in Kashmir valley.
