    The author has selectively picked up events to paint the Indian state as a monster since 1947. He conveniently forgets that India stepped into Kashmir only much after the massacre of Muslims in Jammu. Besides, it was the popular Sheikh Abdullah who was acting on behalf of the Dogra Maharaja. It is also peculiar that a historian glosses over the much-older Hindu history of Kashmir, in favour of much-recent Muslim past!
