Our state has always been a cradle of Sufism; it is men like these that have shaped the socio- cultural milieu of our state. Sufism is a mystical form of Islam, a school of practice that emphasizes the inward search for god and shuns materialism. Sufis has remained a mainstay of the social order of our state since it spread over here. The need of the hours calls for imbuing our lives with the teachings of such great men. On this day I pray for peace and prosperity of the state.”

On this day I greet the people of the state and the people of Kishtwar on the Urs Observance of Shah Asrar- Ud- Din Wali (RA). I hope that the day increases the prospects of peace and prosperity in the State.”
