Kashmir, India – On Monday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah participated in the Navratri puja at the Sharda temple in Kashmir, a momentous occasion as the rituals were conducted there for the first time since 1947. Shah emphasized that this spiritual event not only marks the return of peace in the valley but also signifies the rekindling of the nation’s spiritual and cultural heritage, all under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The newly constructed Sharda temple, situated along the Line of Control (LoC) in Teetwal, Kashmir, was the venue for the Navratri Puja. This temple was inaugurated by Home Minister Amit Shah on March 23 this year, precisely on the same land and following the same architectural pattern as the pre-partition temple.

“It is a matter of profound spiritual significance that for the first time since 1947, the Navratri pujas have been held in the historic Sharda Temple in Kashmir this year,” stated Amit Shah.

He went on to highlight that not only had Chaitra Navratri Puja been observed earlier in the year, but now the mantras of the Shardiya Navratri Puja resonate within the sacred shrine. The restoration of this temple holds great cultural and spiritual importance, especially in a region with a rich tapestry of traditions.

Amit Shah continued, “This not only signifies the return of peace in the valley but also marks the rekindling of our nation’s spiritual and cultural flame under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi Ji.”

The Navratri Puja at Sharda Temple drew a large number of devotees from various parts of the country, underlining the spiritual significance and the renewed cultural vitality that this sacred space embodies. This rekindling of cultural traditions in Kashmir serves as a symbol of hope and a testament to the enduring values that unite India’s diverse cultural fabric.

The reopening of Sharda Temple has become a beacon of unity and coexistence in a region with a deep-rooted history of syncretic traditions and shared heritage between Hindus and Muslims. Amit Shah’s involvement in this endeavor exemplifies the government’s commitment to preserving and celebrating India’s rich cultural and spiritual legacy.
