In his message on the occasion, “Governor observed that Jammu and Kashmir has always been known for its glorious pluralistic ethos and harmony and emphasised the crucial importance of maintaining unity and brotherhood for ushering the State towards peace and prosperity,” an official spokesman said.
Barring the Bharatiya Janata Party, the entire spectrum of political ideologies in Jammu and Kashmir observes July 13 as Martyrs Day across the State.
On this day in 1931, 22 Kashmiris were killed in firing by the forces of the then Dogra ruler Hari Singh outside the central jail in Srinagar. The day, observed as a government holiday in J&K, marked a turning point in the long Kashmiri struggle against the Dogra autocratic rule remembered for tyranny and discrimination.
The 22 martyrs were laid to rest in the premises of the revered shrine of Hazrat Khawja Naqshband Sahab shrine (RA) at Khajwabazar in downtown. The graveyard is popularly known as Martyrs Graveyard. Except BJP, rest of the political groups in the state including the National Conference, the Peoples Democratic Party and the Congress observe the day as Martyrs Day and pay floral tributes at the graveyard.
