मस्जिद बनी पनाहगाह। Mosque becomes a ray of hope

श्रीनगर। हैदरपोरा इलाके की जामा मस्जिद जम्मू-कश्मीर के बाढ़ पीड़ितों के लिए बड़ा राहत केंद्र बन गई है। यहां बच्चों महिलाओं समेत सैकड़ों लोगों ने शरण ली है।

प्राकृतिक आपदा की इस घड़ी में ये मस्जिद आपसी सौहार्द की भी मिसाल बन गई है। दूसरे राज्यों से यहां आए हुए हिंदुओं सहित दूसरे धर्माविलंबियों ने भी मस्जिद में पनाह ले रखी है।

यहां आए सभी लोगों के पास बाढ़ की विभीषिका सुनाने के लिए अपनी-अपनी कहानी है।

Jama Masjid in Hyderpora area has turned into a major relief centre for those affected by the devastating floods in the Kashmir valley, housing hundreds of people, including women and children.

Significantly, in this hour of tragedy, this mosque has become a symbol of communal harmony as a number of Hindus, who had come from outside the state for work, are also taking shelter here.

The inmates of this camp at the mosque, which remained unaffected by the floods, have come from various parts of the Valley and each one had a story of horror and pain to tell.

They narrated how water started coming into residential areas, how quickly the levels rose and how each of them managed to escape the fury, some on their own, some with the help of the army and some with the help of locals.

“I, along with other three members of family, left our house on Sunday evening (August 31) when the water levels started rising fast. I arranged for a boat and first dispatched my daughter to the masjid. Then rest of us followed suit. Since then, we are staying in this masjid,” said 58-year-old Bashir Ahmed Akhoon, a government servant.
