Speaking at the event, Deeba Khan said, “Ramzan is all about righteousness and kindness, and every Ramzan, Mirchi 98.3 Kashmir organises special events to promote acts of kindness to set good examples for others to follow. Our month-long campaign Noor-e-Ramzan was entirely aimed at spreading a message of harmony and peace, with this event being a fitting end towards the same cause. We’re extremely grateful for the opportunity provided by Yateem Trust to have allowed us the opportunity of organising this event with these wonderful children.”
Programming Head Mirchi, Yasir Majid said, “Our entire programming for the Holy month shifts, and is committed to establishing the true essence of Ramzan on and off-air. While we’ve successfully deployed our Noor-e-Ramazan campaign across all platforms, this event gave us the true satisfaction after having been able to spend a day with these well-deserving children and putting a smile on their faces. Events like these should be a norm, and all stakeholders including the media have a big role to play. We thank all our partners, and the entire Gulshan-I-Banat and J&K Yateem Trust foundation, team for making this possible. Special Credit goes to our RJ’s Mehak, Vijdan, and Rafia who are the actual face of whatever we do, and have been instrumental in making this campaign a success.”
