Corrigendum by Kashmir Life


An illustration that accompanied a story (entitled: Marriages of Faith, May 12 – May 18, 2013) in this newspaper about interfaith marriage in Baramulla appears to have hurt religious sentiments of some members of a minority community. Kashmir Life unequivocally states that there is absolutely no intention of hurting sentiments of any religious community and if sentiments were hurt we apologise for the same, although no one has raised any objection to any of the facts presented in the instant story. We would also like to state that at Kashmir Life we accord the highest importance and respect for religious sentiments of all faiths. Staying with that important ethic, we have not uploaded the illustration in question along with the story on our website.
