In a message, the Governor said that the teachings of Jesus Christ, the apostle of peace, compassion and brotherhood, have guided human beings towards righteousness.
    
He observed that the message of Lord Christ is perhaps more relevant today than ever before, when the world is ridden with hate, greed, intolerance and violence.
    
The Governor expressed sincere hope that the occasion would help in further strengthening the bonds of communal harmony, brotherhood, amity, secularism and the traditions of pluralistic ethos for which Jammu and Kashmir has been known for centuries.
    
He wished the people a very Merry Christmas and prayed for peace, progress and prosperity in the state.
