Muslim and Hindu artists collaborate for Kashmir peace

For the first time in 66 years, works by Kashmir’s Muslims and Hindus are on display under the same roof in Srinagar, part of a display to promote togetherness between the communities.

Artists from both the Muslim and Hindu communities in Kashmir have collaborated on a joint exhibition for the first time in decades.

Kashmir’s pro-India coalition government collapsed a few days ago following months of demonstrations, but the art exhibit is aimed at restoring harmony between the discordant groups, and hope for a more stable future.
