Kalam with maulvis on a mission

May 18, 2006

Thirty-five maulvis (Muslim scholars) from Jammu and Kashmir are out on a mission.

The maulvis, who hail from militancy-affected Rajouri, Poonch and Doda districts of Jammu and Kashmir, will spread the message of peace in the Valley.

They met President A P J Abdul Kalam at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Thursday.

The scholars will work hand in hand with the Army to inform people that the so-called holy war being waged by militants was an eyewash.

As part of their mission, they will also seek to increase awareness among people, advising them to work for the betterment of the state.
