Farooq Abdullah calls for strengthening communal harmony, brotherhood in IIOJK

Jammu, January 29 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the President of National Conference (NC) Farooq Abdullah has called for united efforts for strengthening the communal harmony and brotherhood.

Farooq Abdullah speaking during his visit to Samba, said, “Jammu people are pluralistic by nature. The cultural life of Jammu has been shaped by great sages and saints, who enriched it with the teachings of universal brotherhood by teaching and preaching the philosophy that considers the world as a family.”

He said the agenda of communal forces remains at work to divide the people of Jammu, however, what such forces fail to recognise is that the spirit of the Kashmiris’ unity is deep-rooted and widespread. “It is very reassuring to see how Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs participate in each other’s festivals and shoulder each other’s worries,” he added.

Farooq Abdullah said the people in Jammu have fraternal ties with the people of Kashmir and Ladakh as well.
