Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, May 25: Temples are inseparable component of Jammu’s rich cultural heritage which needs to be preserved for future generations at all costs.
This was stated by Yudhvir Sethi, vice president Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) while handing over marble stone for flooring of a Shiv Temple in Ward No 19, today. On the occasion, members of Temple Committee and prominent people of the Ward were also present.
Yudhvir Sethi said “We are proud of our rich cultural heritage of which religious traditions and philanthropy are inseparable components and need to be passed on from generation to generation to maintain and preserve our identity in today’s scenario when the world has been reduced to a global village.”
The senior BJP leader asserted that it is a result of this attitude that Jammu is well known across the nation for maintaining communal harmony and brotherhood amidst diversities in religion and faiths. He added that in the current times when the anti national and anti-social elements are hell bent upon disturbing the communal fabric so it is essential for the people of Jammu not to be led away by the provocative statements of such elements and maintain communal harmony at all costs.
Sethi appealed to people of the area especially the youth to ensure substantial participation in the religious activities and rituals as it will guide them towards a brighter future and prevent them from getting deviated to the wrong track in life like drugs that ultimately ruins their lives.
Among those who were present include Anju Dogra State secretary, Swarn Singh convener Ward No 19, Kartar Mahajan, Vikas Gupta, Rajesh and Kartar.
