Every year half a million Hindu pilgrims trek to the Amarnath caves shrine in Kashmir. Muslims are often seen helping out on this pilgrimage.
Kashmiri Muslims are charged with taking care of a local Hindu mandir.
A Hindu Pandit gave the charge of a 900 year old temple to his friend Abdul Bhat, a Muslim, and asked him to keep the gates of the temple open.
“”Our Prophet Mohammad has taught us that guarding minorities is your sacred duty. We can risk our lives for their protection.”
“We have been making this small gesture of goodwill for our Pandit brothers annually. There is nothing unusual about this. It is part of our culture,” said Noor Mohammad Bhat
