Terming the sacrifices of martyrs of July 13, 1931 as a golden chapter in the history of Jammu and Kashmir, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said they had laid strong edifice of democracy and equality.

Early in the morning, the Chief Minister reached Mazar- e-Shohada at Hazrat Naqshband Sahib at Khawaja Bazar and paid floral wreaths on the mausoleum of the martyrs of 1931.

Addressing a meeting of district and zonal presidents of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) here, she said, "The apprehensions of certain quarters on GST were allayed and the special position of the state was reaffirmed and reassured in a presidential order, as the party has been standing for".

"But it was reassuring to note that people of the state in one voice, irrespective of differences in ideologies, stood up to condemn the act and declared it against the Kashmiri ethos and culture".

Asking people of the state to keep the lessons of Kashmiryat in mind, she said the Kashmir society sent an "unequivocal" message to the world community that they won't tolerate any attack of the ethos and basic principles of Kashmiryat.

The CM hoped the clouds of uncertainty and violence would soon give way to reconciliation, peace and mutual trust.

Several Ministers; legislators; Chief Secretary, B. B. Vyas; Director General of Police, Dr. S. P. Vaid; senior officers; representatives of political and social organisations and people in large numbers joined the Chief Minister in paying homage to the Martyrs. A joint fateha was also offered on the occasion.
