This is the people’s legacy which they have inherited from the great Reshis as Valley is the land of Sufi Reshis who have given Kashmiri people a rich culture, tradition and ethos,” he said addressing the audience on the eve of inauguration of two-day Tulip festival at Tulip garden in Srinagar as per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO)
