In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved,
And our seeking is His seeking
And our words are His words...
We search for Him here and there,
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask:

CM Asks Police To Release Political Prisoners
Date: 5 March 2015

'Releasing political prisoners will send a positive message across the political spectrum of the state. Dissent in democracy makes the system vibrant and dynamic and we should always try to evolve such a system. Democracy is a battle of ideas and it should not be held hostage to the agreements or disagreements on issues,' Mufti said while chairing a meeting with the police top brass in Jammu.
