In the communally sensitive Kishtwar town, Covid cemented communal harmony and brotherhood as religions leaders of both Hindu and Muslim communities have joined hands to fight the deadly virus.

It was efforts of the newly appointed Deputy Commissioner of Kishtwar, Rajinder Singh Tara that religious leaders of both the communities have been working jointly to control the spread of this virus.

Both Shri Sanatan Dharam Sabha and Islami Markazi Majlis-e-Shura of Kishtwar have offered all cooperation to the district administration to impose any type of restriction to check the spread.

“We sought cooperation of the religious leaders in spreading awareness about this disease through announcements via loudspeakers from religious place,” Tara said and lauded religious heads of all communities for shouldering their responsibilities at this crucial time. He said heads of religious organisations were supporting in point-to-point daily sensitisation of religious places and imposing restrictions on the gathering of people. The religious leaders are jointly creating awareness among society and educating people.

Last week, Kishtwar was the first town of Jammu province where Section 144 was imposed to check gathering of people. It was imposed only after religious leaders offered to support any drastic step to be taken by the administration to check spread of coronavirus. The DC said till now the district administration had been successful in containing the spread of Covid in the district.
