Srinagar, Mar 22 (KNO): On the second Friday of the holy month—Ramadhan, a large number of devotees thronged the historic Jamia Masjid here in Old City area of Nowhatta, participating in the congregational prayers led by the head cleric Mirwaiz Molvi Umar Farooq.

The air resonated with prayers and spiritual fervor as worshippers gathered to offer Friday prayers, marking a significant moment in the month of fasting.

According to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), the Jamia Masjid witnessed a significant turnout of devotees, reflecting the deep-rooted religious sentiments of the community.

Despite a wet spell and overnight rain, the devotion of the worshippers remained unwavering as they came together to seek blessings and spiritual guidance during this holy month.

Expressing joy and gratitude, worshippers told KNO, the atmosphere here is truly uplifting and serene. “It’s a blessing to be able to gather with fellow believers and pray together,” said Umer, one of the devotees.

He added, offering prayers in Ramadan at Jamia Masjid is a cherished moment for Kashmiris, as the serenity of this sacred place during Friday prayers fills our hearts with peace and gratitude.

Flight Fares Surge Amid Election Season in Jammu and Kashmir, Infuriating Passengers

Amid Election Season, Flight Fares Skyward in JK, Passengers fume

Srinagar, Mar 22: Air travelers traveling to Jammu and Kashmir are facing the harsh reality of soaring flight fares. With increased demand amidst the election environment and the approaching festival of Holi, airline companies have substantially raised their ticket prices, leaving passengers grappling with exorbitant costs.

As per the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) the impact of this fare surge is particularly felt in routes connecting major cities like Jammu to Srinagar and Delhi. Previously affordable fares have now doubled, with travelers shelling out up to Rs 6,000 for a journey from Jammu to Srinagar, and up to Rs 8,000 for flights to Delhi.

Despite the outcry over escalating fares, authorities have yet to take concrete measures to curb this trend, leaving passengers at the mercy of price hikes. At Jammu airport, which operates 32 flights daily to five different cities, the majority of flights cater to popular routes such as Srinagar and Delhi.

During the period from March 22 to April 10, the average fare for flights from Jammu to Delhi ranges from Rs 5,800 to Rs 7,500. However, with the onset of Holi, these prices skyrocket to between Rs 7,000 and Rs 10,000, placing additional strain on travelers’ budgets. Similarly, flights from Jammu to Ahmedabad are now priced between Rs 6,000 and Rs 8,000, while those to Indore range from Rs 8,000 to Rs 10,000.

Comparing prices with February reveals a staggering increase of three to four thousand rupees, highlighting the significant impact of festival-related fare hikes on travelers. “With such sharp increases, the burden falls disproportionately on passengers, underscoring the need for regulatory intervention to ensure fair pricing practices in the aviation sector,” an aggrieved traveller from Srinagar told KNO—(KNO)

As a result of a unanimous decision made in a meeting of tourist trade stakeholders, all tourist service providers in Pahalgam, including taxi stands, hotels, restaurants, and guest houses, will adopt uniforms and nameplates for their staff members who directly interact with tourists and the general public. This collective decision reflects a commitment to professionalism, efficiency, and ensuring a seamless experience for tourists and visitors, it mentions.

According to the advisory, the distinctive green uniform with nameplates will facilitate easy identification of staff members.
