Madhu Kishwar narrates the story of connection with Kashmir issues including her own family’s old connection with J&K.
In this episode Madhu Kishwar narrates her maternal family’s connection with Kashmir from pre-Partition days; How her mother’s family first lost their home and their assets in Peshawar during 1947 and thereafter and how her grandparents lost all they owned in Kashmir in the name of “land reforms” carried out by Sheikh Abdullah. The story does not end there. Thereafter, her grand uncle’s family which continued living in Kashmir was ousted in 1989 as part of total ethnic cleansing of Hindus.

Fascinating Madhu. when will the rest of the episodes come out. It feels like a cliff hanger…
Thanks, very informative regarding the facts but more insightful regarding the characteristics and and attitudes of non-violent hindus vis a vis barbaric historical marauders!!!
Awaiting the next part.
