National Conference Wednesday held commemorative functions to mark the 113th birth anniversary of its founder, late Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, across Jammu and Kashmir.

A National Conference spokesman said in a statement that the main congregational Fateha-Khwani was held at Sheikh Mausoleum at Naseem Bagh, Srinagar, where the party president Farooq Abdullah and vice-president Omar Abdullah led the senior party leaders and functionaries, along with hundreds of party activists, in paying tributes to the NC founder.

“Various religious personalities had gathered there to pay tributes to Sher-e-Kashmir,” the statement read.

“On the occasion, Farooq Abdullah said Sher-e-Kashmir’s legacy of struggles for the identity and the dignity of the state and its people provides a guiding light for not just the party but the people of Jammu and Kashmir as a whole. The best tribute to Sher-e-Kashmir would be to leave no stone unturned to fight for the honour and dignity of our people who have suffered immensely due to various political machinations, instability and turmoil,” he said, according to the statement.

“Omar, while paying glowing tributes to Sher-e-Kashmir, said that the party is committed to nurture his legacy of secular thinking and inclusive approach for one and all. The party continues to follow the path laid down by Sher-e-Kashmir which is to protect the identity and dignity of J&K and its people against forces hell-bent to divide us on the basis of religion, region and language,” he said.
