Shri Moti Lal Kher (Khar) comes as a simple, honest and a religious person. Originally from Vicharnag in Srinagar and later at Chinkral Mohalla Habbakadal he now lives in Navi Mumbai. He served in the Education Department of the state and retired as Headmaster in 1992.

As one of devotees of Sharika Devi he continued to visit the Hari Parbat temple every morning since his childhood days till his retirement during the peak of militancy in the Valley. A strong believer of  Swami Vivekanada he also was a regular member of the Ramakrishna Ashram at Shivalaya (Chota Bazaar) for many years. During the early eighties he decided to revive the Puran Raj Bhairav temple whose location was not even known to be existing in downtown Hawal. He with the support of some of his friends and the local Muslim residents was able to do a renewed construction and restore its sanctity.

Shri Moti Lal ji has been regularly contributing articles to Milchar and other Community publications like Koshur Samachar.  Through his articles he has been sharing his experiences about life, the issues of our community and his insights about how the challenges facing our community can be addressed. Off late he has been not keeping good health and we have been missing his contribution. We wish him to get well soon so that we can have his rich contributions once again.
