Srinagar: Professor Saifuddin Soz, Former Union Minister has said that the dilapidated house of Sheikh Abdullah at Soura should be converted into a heritage site.

“Sensitized by journalist Mukeet Akmali’s story in 2018 regarding dilapidated condition of the house at Soura… I decided to visit Soura on April 30, 2019. When I arrived there, what I saw was shocking… The neighbhours lamented that the house of historic importance remained neglected for years before it fell to the ground last year.”
