Save Sharda committee Kashmir hails CMs statement on re-opening of LoC routes – Hopes Sharda pilgrimage will open.
Save Sharda Committee Kashmir (Regd.) has hailed today’s statement of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who stressed that LoC trade routes should be opened at many points in J&K . She was speaking in a conference in Srinagar today. In a statement the founder & Head of the committee Ravinder Pandita said that their delegation had met CM recently and apprised her of the recent efforts made by the committee for re-opening of LoC religious places including Sharda Peeth in District Neelum of POK. Ravinder Pandita, founder of the committee reiterated the need for an amendment in LoC permit for travel to PoK that is meant for J&K residents. He demanded that MEA should immediately take up the matter with their counterparts in Pakistan for resuming the pilgrimage on the lines of Sikhs going to Nankana Sahib in Lahore every year. It may not be out of place to mention that the last yatra to Sharda- the basic seat of learning was in 1947 by great saint of Kashmir Swami Nand Lal Ji, who used to live in Sharda in pre-partition era.
Recently the Committee has received an order from Supreme court of AJK, in which the court has highlighted the previous judgements on preservation of Sharda Peeth – the highest peeth of Hindus and Shankracharya mutts throughout the country. The GOI through PMO has also made an admission in January this year by assuring Save Sharda committee that a symbolic yatra to Sharda Peeth should take place this year on a special visa for 3-4 pilgrims. Save Sharda Committee Kashmir (Regd.) is a pressure group working on the re-opening of the pilgrimage on the lines of Nankana sahib yatra in Lahore, Pakistan by Sikhs every year.
