Former Union Minister Professor Saifuddin Soz, a Kashmiri by birth and by heart, through his book Kashmir: Glimpses of History and the Story of Struggle tells us the tale of the paradise on earth.
Beginning from pre-historic roots, the book traces the history of Kashmir through the writings of renowned historians, mostly foreigners, like Ptolemy, Fa-Hien, Hiuen Tsang, Al Beruni, Kalhana, Marco Polo, George Forster, etc.
The book talks in detail about the cultural transitions in the land and what developed into what we know today as Kashmiriyat. Ironically, it was Kashmir that held high the beacon of secularism and tolerance in a country that had gone astray due to communal riots during the partition. Kashmir is the land where temples and mosques co-exist peacefully and where goddesses and pirs are respected simultaneously, irrespective of the faith of the worshiper.
The most controversial incident and a blot on Kashmir’s secularism was the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits in the 1990s. The reasons for the same are dealt with in detail in the book including first-hand narratives by the author himself.
In the final chapter Kashmir- A Way Forward, the author echoes the feelings of the millions of other Indians regarding the Kashmir dispute both as an Indian as well as a Kashmiri. When India and Pakistan fights, it is Kashmir that suffers. Hence, the only solution to the Kashmir problem is through dialogue- for which both India and Pakistan need to shed off their egos and work towards a feasible solution.
Generations of Kashmiri children have woken up to the sound of bullets and bombshells for a very long time now. This Independence Day, let’s pledge to free them from this fear.
If you really want to know the consequences of that time you should go thorough Sec-1 of the correspondence of Sardar Patel which consist the letters of Sardar Patel, Nehru, Sheikh Abdullah,King Hari Singh and Gopalaswami Ayangar during 1946 to 1950... You'll surely get the things...
