While flagging off the tour, Aligarh Muslim University Pro Vice Chancellor, Brigadier S Ahmad Ali (Veteran) said that this is a reverse of the usual Sadbhavna programs, in which people from Kashmir accompanied by the Army usually travel to different parts of India. “However today, a group of students and teachers from outside Kashmir will reach Kishtawar region on a Sadbhavna tour,” said Brigadier Ali.

While urging AMU students to represent the University in the best possible ways; the Pro Vice Chancellor said that upon reaching Kishtawar, AMU students will have an added responsibility of representing their Alma Mater and the student’s community in the best possible ways to the people of Kishtawar, Doda and Baderwah regions.

He also assured that the Army officers will host AMU students in the best ways. “On reaching Jammu, AMU students and teachers will be received by Army Officers and the AMU delegation will witness the excellent hospitality, which the Army has to offer,” said Brigadier Ali urging students to reach in time as the Army officers are known for their punctuality in time.
