Sajid Iqbal speaks to Shams Rehman, author of 'Azaad Kashmir and British Kashmiris'
Since the partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947, the region of Kashmir has been disputed by India and Pakistan. Not surprisingly, it remains a contentious issue for many Muslims in the UK, the majority of whom can trace their origins to Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
‘Azad Kashmir and British Kashmiris’ is a collection of articles on different aspects of Kashmir. The book introduces the reader to the government, politics, economy, language and religion in this part of the divided Kashmir. It also touches upon some controversial issues and to what extent Azad Kashmir is ‘Azad’, meaning free.
