Promoting communal harmony and brotherhood, Hindus and Muslims celebrated 'Malmaas', the extra month in the Hindu calendar, at the famous Martand Teerth Shrine in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag District on Monday.
Kashmiri Hindus expressed their joy over the involvement of both Muslims and Sikhs.

"After 20 years, I have seen such rush at the temple which used to be there earlier. I am feeling very happy as local Muslims and Sikhs are with us," said B L Koul, a Kashmiri Hindu.

Kashmiri Hindus used to visit this temple earlier, but with the advent of militancy in the state, many chose to migrate to more peaceful environs.
