Torn between the Indian government and separatist movement leaders, Kashmir often presents us with news of death and dismay. However, a recent event held at sports conclave in J&K will paint a picture of happiness for you. With a gathering of 6000 youths, the event included speeches from different dignitaries like Home Minister Rajnath Singh and CM Mehbooba Mufti. Alongside, accomplished youths from the state in the field of sports were also felicitated by our Home Minister. Amidst this, a video of a Kashmiri girl clicking a selfie captured the attention of the netizens.
Tajamul Islam is the young star of Kashmir who won International Kickboxing Championship in 2016. This 9-year-old sportsperson was all gleeful on stage during receiving her award.
Her innocence and sweetness were apparent when she went on to hug Rajnath Singh.
Following that she received the award from Mehbooba Mufti and whispered something in the ears of the Home Minister. At that time, no one was sure what she said.
Then she pulled out her phone to take a selfie with the dignitaries. In the video, it could be heard that the applauding in the stadium instantly increased as the crowd cheered on.
Before we share how the Twitterati reacted on the viral video of this Kashmiri girl, watch it here:
