Navreh was also celebrated in Kashmir this year, but it was different from the last 30 years. Its special point was that Kashmiri Pandits, who were living as refugees in different parts of the country, gathered on the land of their forefathers, their birthplace in the Kashmir Valley, to celebrate Navreh. It is believed to be the message of the return of the Pandits in the Kashmir Valley. The tears coming out of the eyes of the Kashmiri Pandits were revealing their feelings while worshiping in front of Maa Sharika. After 30 years, once again, he did not have to say in words how happy he is to live in the valley and celebrate Navreh.
The Kashmiri Pandits, who were chased out of their homes after the slaughter of terrorists who gave the slogan of Nizam-e-Mustafa in Kashmir, had been celebrating Navreh for the past 30 years, but they were celebrating this festival in refugee camps or rent commands. Not only this, the Kashmiri Pandits who remained in the valley would also gather in the Sharika Bhavani temple situated on Hari Parvat every year, following the tradition of Navreh. But she was not happy due to the absence of a close friend, friend. Today Navreh was not limited to just decorating the plate in the temple of mother Sharika Bhavani and quietly descending the steps of the temple to return to her home or to say a few of her relatives in a tongue-in-cheek. For the first time after 1989, Navreh's influence was seen in Kashmir today.

Navreh Milan was also organized at the Shitalnath Bhairav temple, Karalkhud, in which a large number of Kashmiri Muslims gathered to convince the Kashmiri Pandits with Happy New Year that the specter of terrorism and separatism was being shed. All Kashmiri Pandits return to the land of their forefathers and strengthen their roots so that the injured soul of Kashmiriyat can be fully brought to life. Satish Mahaldar, who is trying to rehabilitate and rehabilitate displaced Kashmiri Pandits, said that Navreh is not just the first day of the new year, it is the beginning of a new phase. There should be some auspicious work on the first day.
Prayer for Kashmiri peace in Navreh: To ensure the return of Kashmiri Pandits to Kashmir, there should be complete peace in Kashmir, harmony, Kashmiri Pandits, and Kashmiri Muslims stay together again, what will be more auspicious than this, so we organized Navreh Milan here. The displaced Kashmiri Pandits settled in different parts of the country were inspired to come to Kashmir for Navreh so that they can come here to understand the situation, realize their roots. About 25 Kashmiri Pandits from various states including Delhi have come here only to celebrate Navreh and feel the change here. He said that all of us worshiped Navreh earlier this morning in the temple of Maa Sharika Bhavani in Hari Parbat. There is also worship at the Shitalnath Bhairav temple here. Havan was invented. Apart from this, it was here that we organized Navreh Milan. Many people, including local civil society members, CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yusuf Tarigami attended it. BJP leader Ashok Kaul also came.
It is necessary for Pandits to return to Kashmir to make Kashmir: The Shitalnath temple itself was the center of community, social, religious and political activities of Kashmiri Pandits before 1990. A number of issues have been discussed between Kashmiri Pandits and Kashmiri Muslims. Everyone agreed that Kashmiri Pandits' return to Kashmir is compulsory, otherwise, Kashmir will not cease to be Kashmir. The return of Kashmiri Pandits is necessary to rejuvenate Kashmiriyat. All have pledged to ensure Kashmiri Pandits return to Kashmir. A young girl named Neerja from Delhi said that we have been coming to attend the Kshir Bhavani Fair in Kashmir, but have not come for the last two years. Today we have come on the occasion of Navreh and we have felt the difference in the situation here. Today, the atmosphere here does not feel the same fear as before. This is a big deal. You can also relate it with the decision of 5 August 2019.
