Srinagar, July 13
Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti today led the people of the State in remembering the Martyrs of 1931.
Early in the morning, the Chief Minister reached Mazar- e-Shohada at Hazrat Naqshband Sahib (RA) at Khawaja Bazar and paid floral wreaths on the mausoleum of the martyrs of 1931 who laid down their lives against autocracy and suppression. These sacrifices led to the dawn of freedom in the State which saw the evolution of a democratic and egalitarian system.
Several Ministers; legislators; Chief Secretary, B. B. Vyas; Director General of Police, Dr. S. P. Vaid; senior officers; representatives of political and social organisations and people in large numbers joined the Chief Minister in paying homage to the Martyrs. A joint fateaha was also offered on the occasion.
A contingent of J&K Police posted the bugle and presented the ceremonial guard of honour to the martyrs. Earlier, the Chief Minister visited the shrine of Hazrat Bahau’din Naqshband (R.A.) and paid her obeisance. She also prayed for peace, prosperity and development in the State.
Later, interacting with media persons on the sidelines of the ceremony, Mehbooba Mufti said the best way to remember the sacrifices of these martyrs is that the people of the State work together in strengthening the democratic, secular and tolerant system in the State which was set up after huge sacrifices and struggles by our forefathers.
The Chief Minister hoped the clouds of uncertainty and violence would soon give way to reconciliation, peace and mutual trust. She said it was satisfying that the people of the State, cutting across the ideological divide, were unequivocal in condemning the dastardly act of violence against Amarnath Yatris.
