Jammu and Kashmir, Oct 14 (ANI): The socio-cultural ethos of Kashmir or Kashmiriyat is steeped in a tradition of religious tolerance, social harmony and brotherhood. It was influenced by the advent of saints in Kashmir in early 14th century. Saints were both popular and influential because they identified themselves with established traditions and never opposed the blending of different religious customs, practices and beliefs. As a result, they attracted many followers. Even today, several shrines dot the state, drawing people from different religions in large numbers. For instance there is the shrine of Peer Baba Monga Nath. Located 35 kms from Jammu in the border area of Satrayan village, the shrine attracts people from different communities. Peer Monga Nath was a true devotee of amity and brotherhood.
