The development plan of Hazrat Baba Rishi Shrine was discussed threadbare and many decisions were taken on the spot.

We have a huge developmental plan for this shrine so that it is included in the Spiritual Tourism Map of J&K,” said the Waqf Board Chairperson. She thanked Dr Sehrish Asghar for her co-operation in visiting the shrine to take stock of situations at ground zero for proper decision making. “We have many prominent sufi-shrines in Baramulla district & the co-operation of the District Administration to uplift the infrastructure at shrines & improve the basic facilities for pilgrims is praiseworthy,” said Dr Andrabi. She appealed to the general public to ensure cleanliness in the shrine complex at all costs. Dr Andrabi while speaking to the media said that with the help of other departments, all pending projects will be completed soon.
In reply to a media question, Chairperson Waqf Board said that no compromise will be made on the accountability within Waqf Board. “Many reforms have begun in Waqf & many more are to follow. We will do everything to restore the faith of the public on Waqf management at all costs,” said Dr Darakhshan.
