Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra on Thursday called upon the leaders of all political, religious parties, social organisations and the people of the state to shed all differences and join hands to make Jammu and Kashmir peaceful and prosperous.

In a message on the Martyrs' Day, the Governor observed that Jammu and Kashmir has been known for its glorious pluralistic ethos, amity and brotherhood, and urged the people to work towards restoring the pristine glory of the State as an abode of peace, harmony and prosperity. Meanwhile, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti paid rich tributes to the Martyrs of July 13, 1931 terming their sacrifices as the golden chapter in the history of Jammu and Kashmir.

In a message, Ms Mufti said the brave hearts of 1931 sacrificed their lives for laying the foundation of a system based on equality, justice and liberty in the state. Sacrifices ought to be safeguarded, respected and protected by every citizen and no sacrifice is big enough to guard their contribution.

She said the best way to pay homage to these heroes is to develop Jammu and Kashmir as an egalitarian and tolerant society, free from the distinctions of religion, region, caste or creed. "The heroes of 1931 had dreamed of a democratic, prosperous and tolerant Jammu and Kashmir for which they even laid their lives. It's now our responsibility and challenge to make the state truly a model by strengthening these ideals and guarding them firmly," she added.
