Leading thousands of Jammuties in paying homage to iconic warrior and Duggar pride Mian Dido, Provincial President National Conference Devender Singh Rana on Saturday sought inclusion of a chapter on his saga of valour in academic curriculum at primary level for posterity to take inspiration from his great struggle against exploitation.

"Mian Dido fought for the just rights of millions and the best way of paying tribute to him will be to imbibe the spirit of his inclusiveness and work for harmonious society based on equality and social justice", Rana said while addressing a congregation at Jagati, the birthplace of the Dogra pride this afternoon.

He dwelt in detail on the life and struggle of Mian Dido, saying reverence for him is still echoing in the folk songs sung in his remembrance by the indebted people. He said the land of warriors would never compromise with the identity and dignity for which Mian Dido waged a relentless war over two centuries ago.

"This day also reminds us of great Jammu heroes, who have struggled in their own way to carve out a place of honour for the selfless people of Jammu", Rana said and stressed the need for passing on the glorious Duggar heritage to posterity, especially at a time when the society was ridden by hatred and intolerance. He hoped the intelligentsia will come forward and generate awareness about the towering spiritual figures like Mian Dido, who strived all their lives for strengthening the bonds of communal amity and brotherhood.
