National Conference President and Member Parliament of Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah Tuesday visited the shrine of Sultan-ul-Aarifeen Sheikh Hamza Makhdoomi (RA) and prayed for peace in the state.
Paying obeisance at the shrine, Dr. Farooq Abdullah prayed for stability and development of the State and well being of its people. He was accompanied by Party General Secretary Mr Ali Mohammad Sagar.
While interacting with the devotees at the shrine of the revered saint, Dr Farooq said, “Muslims of the world were prosperous when they were united but the current situation is very disturbing. The need of the hour therefore is to establish unity among ranks of Muslims around the world,” adding, “Conspiracies are being hatched to weaken the Muslim world but we need to be vigilant. Islam has given the world a lesson in humanity and universal brotherhood. It’s this essence of Islam which needs to be revived among all of us.”
On the occasion Khudamman Ziarat performed Dastar Bandi on both the leaders.
Later General Secretary and MLA Khanyar Ali Mohammad Sagar impressed upon the District administration to make sure that all the adequate arrangements are in place for the upcoming Urs days at the shrine.
