Kulgam: The two key communities in the Valley — Kashmiri Muslims and Kashmiri Pandits – have once again set an example of communal harmony and brotherhood by coming together to performed the last rites of two Kashmiri Pandit women in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district.

As soon as the news of death of Chand Rani, 80, wife of BadriNath, and Kaushali Devi, 83, wife of JankiNath, spread in the area, the local Muslim community came forward to help the families in performing the last rites. Both women were residents of Kulgam.

Ghulam Mohhudin Shah, a local, said that from setting up the cremation pyre to checking the last-minute details of carrying the earthen pot to cremation ground, local Muslims did all, besides carrying the bodies for the final journey.

Ramesh Kumar, another Kashmiri Pandit said Kashmiri Muslims and Pandits are two faces of same coin and this bonding is eternal. “The brotherhood and communal harmony is everlasting and these gatherings are one such example of it,” he said.

Reports said that the deceased women were later cremated by their relatives. However, every possible help was provided by the local Muslim community.
