Srinagar, October 03 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, in view of the ongoing crisis concerning apples in the territory, a family distributed local apples at the wedding of their daughter.
Ghulam Mohammed Baba, a resident of Yayil in Rawalpora, Srinagar, had been busy preparing for the wedding of their daughter when the saddening visuals of trucks laden with Kashmiri apples hit the internet. It was during this time that Ghulam Mohammed and other elders decided that they would purchase apples for hundreds of guests who were invitees to the wedding.
On Sunday, as hundreds of people attended the wedding it was surprising for many to see local uncooked apples being introduced to the wedding, which is not a part of Kashmiri cuisine, Wazwan.
“The painful visuals of our apple farmers suffering for the want of market haunted Kashmiris and we were no different. We decided to replace the soft drinks with apples as they can be better anyday than any drink and importantly it is our local economy,” Baba said.
