SRINAGAR: At a time when separate Pandit Township is raging a new controversy in Kashmir, a south Kashmir man offered his house for a visiting KP family at Kokernag and invited them to come back and live with him.
A video posted on Facebook by one Rajesh Raina showed his wife, Sweeti Raina, breaking down while visiting her parental village in Kokernag. Rainas are currently putting up in Hyderabad.
Consoling the lady, the elderly man, is seen offering even his house to the visiting pandit daughter, in case she returns the valley along with his family.
The video, which has already gone viral on social networking sites, set the debate among netizens, who are terming it a heart warming sign of Kashmiriyat.
Interestingly, the video was circulated at a time when Sainik Colony and separate Pandit Township plans have threatened to snowball into new major crisis in Kashmir. In backdrop of these developments, some are even predicting the resurgence of another simmering summer in valley.
You even have a stake on our blood, the elder was heard telling the sobbing Pandit lady.
Earlier, while sharing the video on his FB wall, Rajesh Raina wrote: This is real Kashmiriyat. I shot this video clip today at Kokernag, the native place of my wife. Ek pehloo yeh bhi hai Kashmir ki Tasveer ka. (This is just one of facets of the picture called Kashmir.).
