The annual Amarnath Yatra started on July 2 this year and so far around 1,45,000 pilgrims have had ‘Darshan’ inside the Cave Shrine situated 3,888 metres above the sea level.
Despite heightened tensions in the valley because of the killing of Hizbul commander, Burhan Wani, on July 8, local Muslims have been lending a helping hand to the pilgrims in performing the yatra.
Local Ponywallahs, taxi operators, roadside tea stall owners, porters and the common man in the valley were ensuring that the yatra was not affected because of the prevailing law and order situation in Kashmir.
