In her message on the occasion, the former Chief Minister 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 adding their sacrifices ought to be safeguarded, respected and protected by every citizen and no sacrifice is big enough to guard their contribution.
Mehbooba Mufti said the best way to pay homage to these heroes is to develop Jammu & 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 & 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 said in her message.
