Muslims help perform last rites of Kashmiri Pandit in Tral » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, May 23 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, in an exemplary display of communal harmony the Muslims in south Kashmir’s Tral area helped perform the last rites of an elderly Kashmiri Pandit on Saturday.

As soon as the news of the death of 95-year-old Jagan Nath Bhat from Tral on Saturday spread, members of Muslim community came together to help in performing his last rites.

Many people visited the home of the deceased to express condolences with the family.

Pandit community had migrated from Kashmir to Jammu and in different parts of India in 1990s when the then Governor of occupied Kashmir, Jagmohan Malhotra, who was notorious for anti-Muslim bias, launched massive killing of Kashmiris to suppress their ongoing freedom movement. A very small percentage of Kashmiri Pandits, however, stayed back and are living in the Kashmir Valley.
