In his message, the Party President said that Kashmir being an alcove of Sufis and saints has been bestowed with spiritual wealth. He said that the shrines associated with Sufis have traditionally been held in reverence by people in Kashmir cutting across religious lines. “Hazrat Baghdadi (RA) and Hazrat Zati Shah Sahib (RA) were amongst the galaxy of Sufis and saints whose contribution towards the social and cultural life of Kashmir is immense. These saints have shaped the contours of our social, cultural and spiritual life by preaching the message of piety, self conscience and penance. These great men indoctrinated the people with the core values of Islam, the Quranic teachings and various other facets of Islamic learning including Hadith and Sunnah. Kashmir bears deep imprints of the teachings of such great saints, and Sufis who out of their personal example revolutionized the society by purging it from various evils."
