Amid rising tension between India and Pakistan after several cross border strikes in past 36 hours, several flights at Srinagar airport were cancelled, bringing much problems to the tourists. In the wake of tension, Kashmiris have yet again come forward with their goodwill gestures. A hotel in the state capital opened its doors for tourists stranded in Kashmir.
The hotel Kaisar situated in Jawahar Nagar of Srinagar offered free accommodation and food to domestic tourists until the situation returns to normalcy.
“Hotel Kaisar is offering free accommodation and food for every tourist who is stuck in Srinagar in the present situation. Tourists from any state can come and stay with us for free till the situation gets back to normal…please feel free to call us at 9999059079/9868270376. We are with you!,” they said in a facebook post.
The owner of the hotel said that the initiative was taken after many tourists were found stuck due to the closure of Srinagar-Jammu national highway and suspension of air traffic at Srinagar International Airport.
The information was further shared by Omar Abdullah on Twitter. While sharing the post, he said, “For any one stuck in Srinagar & running low on funds please feel free to take up this offer.”

Operations at the Srinagar airport have resumed “as of now”, Aviation watchdog DGCA said.
The Srinagar-Jammu national highway is closed in view of the damage caused to the road by the landslides over the past few days.
