Wazirbagh has a temple and a gurdwara. Though many Kashmiri Pandit families have left the area, 10 to 12 families still live here and its adjoining areas. There are several Sikh families too whose garments and hardware shops now lie submerged in water.

When flood waters were rising by a few feet every hour, the family of a Kashmiri Pandit, Ashok ji, as neighbours call him, was among the first to be rescued by Sohail Tabrez and Akil, the Muslims of the locality.

“Ashok ji had saved young Akil when there was a theft in his house. We went to the Pandit families here and asked them to leave their homes. The Sikh families too were rescued by army and locals,” says Sohail Tabrez.
