National Conference president Farooq Abdullah paid obeisance at a gurdwara in Jammu and Kashmir’s Reasi district and prayed for an end to bloodshed and wellbeing of the people of the state.
The former chief minister sought divine blessings in sustaining time tested unity and inclusiveness besides praying for peace and tranquility in the state, a party spokesman said here.
Abdullah also interacted with devotees on the occasion and expressed grave concern over the growing cult of violence and intolerance.
“The perpetrators of violence and hate cannot break the unity of the people who have had a unique bonding. This unity in diversity is the real strength of the state that has prevailed even during most challenging times, he said.
