Pandit couple have been living with this Muslim Family for last 10 Years in Kashmir

In a heartening example of communal harmony between Muslims and Pandits in Kashmir, Muslims performed the last rites of Janki Nath (84) who, along with his wife Rani, had been living with a Kashmiri Muslim family for the last 10 years.

In 1990, at the time when Kashmiri Pandits (Hindus) left Kashmir valley in the outbreak of Militancy against the Indian State , this couple decided to stay back with their Kashmiri brethren and had no regrets at their decision.

Janki Nath and his wife Rani, have been the only Pandit couple living in the village of Malwan Kulgam among 5000 Muslims.On January 30, Janki Nath died and his cremation was arranged by the locals.

Rani, the wife of deceased has a strong faith in her decision to continue her life in a Muslim family on wards.
