World News | Kashmir: More activities for young people as government succeeds in banishing fear


Kashmir (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], April 21 (ANI): It is reassuring to see that the fear of the Kashmiri people is giving way to a healthier life with zest and fervor. The government has succeeded in fighting terrorism and instilling faith in the people of Jammu and Kashmir. In turn, the people of the Union Territory resume their debonair lifestyle and celebration.

The Jammu and Kashmir Academy of Art, Culture and Language (JKAACL) and Wakf Intezamia Ziayarat Ashmuqam recently organized a Sufi congregation coinciding with the annual Urs celebration of Baba Zaniudin. The Anantnag Sufi congregation drew a large number of devotees to the place where a ‘naat’ and a ‘manqabat mehfil’ were held. The naats were recited and the manqabats were sung by popular local voices from South Kashmir.

In another such development, the Jammu district administration, in association with the district youth services and sports office, organized a three-day inter-panchayat event (April 15-17) in three sports disciplines, volleyball, kabaddi and tug of war, in which different Panchayats actively participated.

The colors of life are returning to the state after its restructuring. Continuing the cause of celebration in an otherwise troubled state due to frequent acts of terrorism, the Kargil Tourism Department organized a colorful program at Garkone village as part of a series of events under the banner of the second Apricot Blossom Festival (ChuliMendog).

This is mainly attributed to the paradigm shift in the region due to the Indian government’s success in containing terrorism and helping the people of J&K live normal lives and celebrate their cultural and traditional festivals. Garkone village in Kargil and nearby neighboring villages produce quality apricots in the district and are proud of it.

As summer in India peaked a month early in April itself, Indians flock in droves to vacation in Jammu and Kashmir, which they adore as their “own Switzerland”. April 15 marked the day when Srinagar International Airport recorded a record 102 flights with 15,199 fliers. This marks the resumption of fear of Covid-19 as the government vaccinated the people of Jammu and Kashmir in large numbers and an improvement in the overall security scenario.

The government has dealt with terrorism with all sincerity and with an iron fist after the repeal of Article 370. Although the article gave the state of Jammu and Kashmir a special status, it limited the central government options for improving law and order and countering terrorism. . The article also proved to be an obstacle to development, especially investment for industrialization.

Kashmiri identity and culture are also promoted and events are organized to highlight these aspects. During holy Ramzan, Jammu and Kashmir People’s Justice Front (JKPJF) held (April 17) a public seminar on “Ramzan: Festival of Peace”, attended by a large number of locals, religious scholars, social activists and political analysts.

The JKPJF president highlighted the importance of Ramzan by explaining how it develops “our manners and moral strength, to strengthen our brotherhood.” He also touched on the concept of violence and non-violence, adding that “violence breeds hatred”.

The winds of change are blowing in Jammu and Kashmir, as evidenced by the increased participation of the people in sporting, cultural and traditional events. The government’s efforts are surely bearing fruit.

Meanwhile, the state attracted more than Rs 50,000 crore of investments last year across a wide range of sectors including infrastructure, food processing and pharmaceuticals. (ANI)
