Violence was never part of Kashmiriyat, but became daily reality: President

It was most unfortunate that this outstanding tradition of peaceful coexistence was broken” he said.

He said it is alien to Kashmiri culture and can only be termed as an aberration – a temporary one, much like a virus that attacks the body and needs to be purged. Now there is a new beginning and determined efforts to regain this land’s lost glory.

President Kovind expressed confidence that Jammu and Kashmir will achieve its rightful place as the crowning glory of India.

‘I am squarely banking on the younger generation of Jammu and Kashmir to realise this dream which I am sure will come true sooner than later.

Now there is a new beginning and determined efforts to regain this land’s lost glory”, he said.

The President said that he firmly believed that democracy has within it a capacity to reconcile all differences and also a capacity to bring out the best of citizens’ potential. “Kashmir is already realizing this vision. Democracy lets Kashmiri people build their own future, a peaceful and prosperous tomorrow”, he said.

He said the youth and women especially have high stakes in it, and he was confident that they would not let go of this opportunity to rebuild lives and rebuild Kashmir.

Addressing the 19th annual convocation of Kashmir University (KU) here on Tuesday, the President said Kashmiris spiritual and cultural influence has its imprint all across India.
