Flowers offered at Sharada Peeth in PaK, says AMPCC
Jammu: A Muslim man has paid floral tributes at Sharada Peeth temple in Pakistan-administered-Kashmir (PaK) on behalf of the All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee (APMCC), an organisation of Kashmiri migrants said on Sunday.
Sharada Peeth is an abandoned temple located in the village of Sharda along the Neelum river near the Line of Control, a major centre of learning, and also regarded as one of 18 highly-revered temples throughout south Asia.
Sharing a video-clip and pictures, the APMCC which is spearheading a campaign for facilitating pilgrimage to the ancient temple said tributes were paid to Sharada Mata by a local resident of PaK, Rayees Ahmad, on the eve of Sharada Ashtami on August 26.
“This is for the first time since 1947 that flowers were offered at the most revered shrine,” a spokesman of the APMCC claimed.
Last year, the Pakistan government approved a proposal to establish a corridor which would allow Hindu pilgrims from India to visit Sharada Peeth.
