Rezensionen
"This book contains a compendium of Abdullah's letters, lectures, and press articles, which carefully document his laws-into-sausages struggle to achieve a free, independent Kashmir based on pluralism, a rejection of the religious split between Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs that ultimately truncated South Asia into endlessly combative, nationalistic, and regressive regimes. ... This book is an intuitive primer in democracy for anyone who would take a practical, holistic view of the democratic enterprise." (Jim Drummond, World Literature Today, Vol. 93 (3), 2019) "The book taken as a whole is an interesting read because it not only presents us the ideas of sheikh Abdullah in the form of his letters, speeches and press conferences but also give as a clear peep into Khan's own understanding of the situation as it exists in Kashmir at present. ... The Book reflects her frustration with the Violence, purposelessness, and senselessness, that the Present-day politics has started representing." (Rekha Chowdhary, The Book Review, Vol. 63 (3), March, 2019)
