Kashmiri Pandits pray for peace, communal brotherhood in Valley on Maha Navami
Kashmiri Pandits on Thursday performed ‘puja’ on the occasion of Maha Navami at Durga Nath temple here, with special prayers for peace and communal brotherhood in Kashmir.
The prayers at the temple in the Sonwar area of the city here were performed days after attacks on the members of minority communities in the Valley. However, the attendance of the devotees this year was visibly lower compared to the previous years.
“We prayed to the deity to create an atmosphere of peace and keep the brotherhood between different communities here for the times to come,” he said.
Dembi said the attackers will not succeed in their plans to create a wedge in society.
He also appealed to those members of the minority communities who have left the Kashmir valley in the aftermath of the recent attacks to return.
