Jammu, Sept 23: Dharmarth Trust paid glorious tributes to Maharaja Hari Singh, the former ruler of the erstwhile state of J&K on his 125th Birth Anniversary in a simple but impressive programme held here today at Maharaja Hari Sigh Park, abiding by the social distancing and other norms amid coronavirus pandemic.
On the occasion, M.K Ajatshatru Singh, former Minister & Ex MLC and Ranvijay Singh, Trustees of J&K Dharmarth Trust paid floral tributes amidst chanting of Vedic Mantras.
Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the gathering, as usual, would have been much higher with excellent participation but due to this pandemic the event was marked with low key.
While speaking on the occasion, M.K Ajatshatru Singh highlighted the contribution of Maharaja Hari Singh in socio-political and religious reforms in the state during his rule. He also threw light on the diverse facts of his personality and good governance.
Ajatshatru Singh said it was only because of the wisdom and political vision of the Dogra rulers of the J&K state that the people of the entire state did not suffer the British tyranny as the people of the rest of the country suffered during 200 years of the British rule in India.
"In a memorable speech in London in 1931-32 at the Round Table Conference on Indian constitutional reforms, Maharaja Hari Singh fearlessly demanded honour and equality for India. Maharaja with his political wisdom had preferred to join the secular state of India instead of the theocratic state of Pakistan by signing the instrument of accession on October 26, 1947," he said.
Ajatshatru Singh urged the government to announce a public holiday on the Birth Anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh as a sign of respect and honour for him, without any further delay.
Mubarak Singh, President, Dr Gopal Parthsarthi Sharma, Secretary and staff members of the Dharmarth Trust also paid tributes to the great Maharaja and recalled his contributions to the erstwhile state.
