Let’s Embrace Forgiveness. Even The Learned Minds Can Err

The valley of Kashmir – long echoed with the melodies of a unique symphony – a harmonious blend of spiritual whispers and earthly resilience.

This rich tapestry, woven with threads of diverse faiths and traditions, finds its strength in unity, its rhythm in respect. Yet, like any delicate tune, it can be momentarily off-key, thrown into dissonance by misplaced notes. Such was the recent controversy sparked by Dr. Manzoor Ahmad Mir, a learned Islamic scholar’s comments, casting a shadow on the revered figure of a Sufi saint, cherished by the Kashmiri people.

However, amidst the discord, a counterpoint rises. Voices advocating for understanding, for acknowledging that even learned minds can err, and for embracing forgiveness. As Dr. Manzoor has offered sincere apologies, twice now, it is time to heed the call for calm. To persist in amplifying the controversy, to stoke the embers of anger, serves only one purpose – to weaken the very melody that defines Kashmir’s spirit.

In this dissonance, our adversaries find their solace. They watch from the sidelines, their ears attuned to the clash, not the concord. It is here, at this crucial juncture, that we must remember the strength we hold in our common ground, the unwavering melody that has sustained us through centuries of turmoil.

Let us not allow a single off-key note to drown out the symphony of our shared values. Let us not become instruments in the hands of those who seek to shatter our harmony. Instead, let us be like the Sufis themselves, whose lives were testaments to the power of tolerance and understanding. Let us embrace forgiveness, not as a surrender, but as the bridge that leads us back to the path of unity.

Kashmir’s symphony is too precious to let it falter. Let us, its custodians, its singers, tune out the discord and raise our voices in unison, creating a melody of peace, respect, and understanding. Let us prove that even when the notes stray, the true strength of our song lies in our ability to harmonize, to rise above the noise, and to remember the beauty of the music that binds us together.

Remember, the silence after a storm can be the prelude to a new, even more beautiful symphony. Let us make sure it is one of unity, not another echo of discord.
