Anantnag, May 14: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti here on Sunday said that religious harmony is the corner stone of Kashmiriyat and people of Kashmir won’t any one to damage the spirit of Kashmiriyat which has been introduced and strengthened by Sufi saints in Jammu & Kashmir State.

Declaring that foundation of religious harmony laid by Sufi saint can’t be demolished by forces inimical to religious brotherhood in the state, Mehbooba said killers of innocent policemen, professional giants of par excellence including the likes of Lt. Umar Fayaz and looters of public money from banks can’t be friends of Kashmiris and saviors of Kashmiriyat. Saying that Kashmiris have proven their talents by excelling in All India Service Examinations and national Sports events, Mehbooba said Kashmiriyat founded by Sufi saints will be protected at all costs.
