In Gratitude Kashmiris Offer Discounts and Free Services to Sikhs
Chandigarh: A non-profit organisation, Khalsa Aid, received several messages and calls from the Kashmiri students who were ferried to Jammu free of cost. People of the Kashmir Valley have now taken to social media for posting their gratitude towards the Sikh community.
From free car services from Car Plaza, Anantnag, and Dr Adil Wani’s free dental services for one month, to Alburaq Group’s free air tickets to IPTS Heights School offering free of cost education to Sikhs, Kashmiris are offering discounts and free services to Sikhs.
In a state of panic, more than 800 Kashmiri students fled Dehradun, Ambala and several other parts of north India to escape backlash from the locals in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack.
Initially, 21-year-old Khawaja Itrat, a student of CGC, Landran, and a member of Jammu and Kashmir Students Organisation (JKSO), had made arrangements for facilitating Kashmiri students’ stay in Mohali at his residence. There, former SGPC member Amarinder Singh had made provision for the students’ at Gurdwara Singh Shaheedan, Sohana. The volunteers have reported to have sent off more than 400 Kashmiri students back home, safely.
