Srinagar, Jan 20: A temple in the Shahr-e-Khaas reopened
Tuesday after 20 years with a special Pooja organised on the occasion of Basant Panchami.
Non-migrant Kashmiri Pandits assembled at Shetaleshwar Bhairav, temple and performed puja.
T N Ganjoo, chairman of Kashmiri Pandit Sangarash Samiti, (an organisation of non-migrant Pandits) said they chose Basant Panchami for the reopening of the temple to restore its past glory.
“The Shiv lingam in the temple is intact thanks to a Kashmiri
Muslim caretaker. The reopening of the temple is a glaring example of communal harmony and we have decided to involve the Muslim community and use the premises for reconciliation,” Samiti President Sanjay K Tikoo said.
