In the aftermath of Pulwama attack, students and traders in Kashmir were forced to flee the state. During such critical times, Khalsa Aid came to the rescue of these people by offering food and sheltering them. Their act of magnanimity was applauded nation-wide.
Transport arrangements are also being made for the students who want to go home.Parents need not to worry as the are so many panjabis to make sure every Kashmiri is safe here.@RaviSinghKA @ndtvindia @BBCHindi @THNewDelhi @CNN #khalsaaid #onelove #kashmiri @Khalsa_Aid #Humanity pic.twitter.com/CUGCg7Gntl— Amarpreet Singh (@amarpreet1313) February 18, 2019
Now, to show gratitude Kashmiris are offering heavy discounts and even free services to Sikhs in Kashmir, according to News18.
According to The Tribune, people of the Kashmir Valley are posting on social media to show respect - from free car services, to free coaching by Eternal Coaching Centre. A dental surgeon, Adil Wani has announced one-month long free services to Sikhs. IPTS Heights School is offering free of cost education to Sikhs.
And many more businesses have come forward to show their gratitude.
Netizens including the former Chief Minister of J&K, Mehbooba Mufti, have taken to Twitter to appreciate this chain of brotherhood at its best.
Tweeting these days comes at a cost. One is exposed to caustic levels of hatred & bigotry. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to recieve screenshots of Kashmiris expressing gratitude to our Sikh community for helping frantic students. Sadly media will turn a blind eye. pic.twitter.com/KDT84cYSzp— Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) February 21, 2019
