Pulwama attack fallout: Ajmer Sharif chief asks govt not to allow Pak devotees to visit shrine

Ajmer 15 Feb 2019: Condemning the terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, Ajmer Sharif Dargah dewan Syed Zainul Abedin Ali Khan Friday urged the government to not allow devotees from Pakistan to visit the shrine.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Ali Khan, the descendant of Sufi saint Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hassan Chishti, paid tribute to the personnel killed in the attack.

He urged the government to not allow ‘jatha’ or group of devotees from Pakistan to visit the famous shrine in Rajasthan’s Ajmer during festivals, including Urs, which commemorates the death anniversary of the Sufi saint.

Describing the attack as “non-Islamic”, he said harming lives of innocent people by attacking them cowardly is against the fundamental principles of the religion.

Several devotees from Pakistan visit the Ajmer Sharif Dargah every year.

On Thursday, an explosives laden truck rammed into a CRPF convoy in Pulwama outside Srinagar, killing 40 soldiers in one of the biggest terror attacks in recent years.

Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) has claimed responsibility for the attack. (PTI)
