The Dawn Over Kashmir

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that it is an incontrovertible fact that a new age has set in in Kashmir and could rightly be described as the ‘Dawn over Kashmir’. This development in Kashmir is not attributable to any external cause, but is rather the result of fresh thinking on the part of the Kashmiri people themselves. In the book, the author analyzes that events testify to a new journey having begun in the history of Kashmir. And this constructive journey will certainly continue until it reaches its ultimate destination.

Peace in Kashmir

On an occasion of an international conference in Switzerland in 2001, the Maulana heard an 80-year old Kashmiri participant viewing the beauty around her in awe: “Our Kashmir was as beautiful as Switzerland, but today it stands destroyed.” Thinking of this he states that the blame for the destruction of Kashmir must be placed on the shoulders of those inept Kashmiri leaders who, with their emotionally-driven rhetoric, completely misled their people and pushed them on to the destructive path of militancy.
