Srinagar, Nov 24: National Conference (NC) President Farooq Abdullah Wednesday greeted people on the 718th Urs of KhawajaNizamuddinAwliya (RA).

A statement of NC issued here quoted Abdullah as saying that Khawaja Nizamuddin Awliya (RA) emphasised introspection and spiritual affinity with Allah and paid tributes to the great Sufi saint.

“Contributions of Chishti Sufis have a significant role in the making of India’s wonderful pluralistic culture in which an amazing diversity can peacefully coexist,” he said. “Through their practices, these great Chisti Sufis including KhawajaNizamuddinAwliya (RA) were able to show the real face of Islam in the light of teachings of the Holy Quran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to the world.”

Abdullah said that Urs like these bring together people from various sections of the society in a spiritual atmosphere in which discriminatory social and religious boundaries are obliterated.

“I greet people of the entire subcontinent on the Urs, praying that the day augurs well for the increased prospects of lasting peace and prosperity in the entire subcontinent,” he said.
