MP Mehdi shocked by the mysterious destruction of a sanctuary

Srinagar, June 20: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference leader and Srinagar MP Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi on Thursday expressed shock and anguish over the fire that damaged the shrine of revered saint Hazrat Baba Naseeb-u-Din Gazi (RA) in Sangam Eidgah area of ​​Srinagar on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday.

In a statement expressing outrage over the incident, Ruhullah asked the government to launch a time-limited investigation into the incident to verify the facts. “Such acts are intolerable because they pose a grave danger to our centuries-old spiritual heritage.

Local residents claim that the circumstances leading to the incident appear suspicious, which the district administration itself also acknowledges. A similar incident was foiled by locals a few days ago thanks to timely intervention.

The perpetrators of this heinous act must not be spared and must be brought to justice. People must also maintain peace and calm and not play into the hands of forces hostile to peace and fraternity,” he said.
