IIOJK woman designs shawl embossed with ‘Ayat-ul-Kursi’

Srinagar, July 31 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a woman from south Kashmir’s Kulgam district has written “Aayat-ul-Qursi” by designing it on a hand-made shawl.

Shaheena Bano, 42, wife of Ghulam Rasool Lone, who is a resident of Hariwath Gopalpora, Kulgam, has worked for several days and nights to prepare the shawl.

A white colour shawl about five feet white and three feet tall is embossed with the Quranic verses.

Talking to media, Shaheena said that she has been associated with handicrafts for the last two decades and has trained dozens of women in handicrafts, so far, who are now earning their livelihood well.

“It took me months together to prepare this shawl and money does not matter whatever it will fetch as it is the verses from the holy Quran written on it,” she added.
