Kisse Kashmir Ke: Ajaat Jamwal interviews Madhu Kishwar, Part 1 of 6 episodes

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.

MANUSHI, managed by a non-profit Trust needs Your support so that we continue to remain निडर, निष्पक्ष, न्यायसंगत. This has been possible because we:

  • Never sought goverment patronage, no matter who is in power;
  • Said a firm 'No' to patronage from foreign funding agencies even when offered hefty grants;
  • Have never viewed the India world through the prism of western ideologies;
  • Judge each issue on merit: refused to join durbari each chambers from the time of Manushi's inception;
  • Always based our writing on facts garnered through serious academic research and live interaction with ground reality.

That is why we were able to consistently cut through the intellectual &
political fog create by vested interests.
