Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Farooq Abdullah was greeted with slogans of ‘Modi-Modi’ and ‘Har Har Mahadev,’ when he reached out to the Zeestha Devi temple in Srinagar.
The Zeestha Devi temple is a very prominent place of worship among Kashmiri Pandits.
Abdullah had reportedly come to the temple to meet the Kashmiri Pandits, who did not hold back their anger for not receiving any help from him in resolving the issues faced by them. As Abdullah arrived at the temple, people surrounded him and started chanting pro-Modi slogans.
Thousands of Kashmiri Pandit families were forced to leave their homes in the Kashmir Valley in the 1990s due to militancy. Since then, the community has failed to find its way back to the place it belonged to.
On Wednesday, the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister met a delegation of Kashmiri Pandits at his residence.
