Dr Farooq Abdullah greets people on Urs of Syed Yaqoob Sahib (RA)

The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Party President and Member of Parliament from Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah has greeted people on the annual Urs of Hazrat Syed Yaqoob Sahib (RA), Sonwar.

“The awliyas passionately believed that the sanctity of every life is to be saved and preserved,” Dr Farooq said in his greetings. “Their method of approaching the Almighty was through repentance from sin, the purging of contemptible qualities, and the evil traits of character. On this auspicious occasion, I pray to the Almighty to salvage us from the current tumultuous times. May the Urs act as a harbinger of peace in J&K, Ladakh,” he said.

Meanwhile, Party Provincial Vice President Ahsan Pardesi has impressed upon the administration to ensure all facilities to devotees on the Urs observance.
