Jammu: Senior National Conference leaders on Saturday made a fervent appeal to people to maintain peace and brotherhood in Jammu and Kashmir, following communal clashes at Kishtwar.
Jammu and Kashmir has been an abode of peace where people of different faiths have been living in complete harmony and brotherhood from times immemorial, senior NC leaders Devender Singh Rana, Surjeet Singh Slathia and Rattan Lal Gupta said in a statement here.
"The spirit of amity and tranquillity, despite grave provocations from time to time, has been high point of the pluralistic ethos that distinguishes the state in the entire country," they maintained.
The NC leaders said any sort of discord among different sections of the society does not go well with the time tested unity and glorious traditional of the state that has been a shinning and proud symbol of Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Christian brotherhood.
"We should not allow ourselves to get swayed by emotions and provocations of elements inimical to peace and maintain the brotherhood and amity at all costly," they said.
