Local heroes like Maqbool Sherwani died fighting the tribals. The town of Baramulla has always been peaceful & committed to development. He also mentioned that the town is blessed with a secular fabric and has Mandirs, Masjids, Gurudwaras & Churches, with people taking pride in showcasing all of them with same zeal and fervor,” he added.
