Khalistan Sense and Nonsense

fortunately, the University's contribution in the exploration of Kashmir's problems and exploitation of the Valley's great research potential has been marginal. This University has been an outpost of retiring faculty at Aligarh Muslim University who have often used the time they spend there merely to carry their own previous concerns, academic or other, to the University. Perhaps, there would have been some development of research on subjects of direct concern and relevance to Kashmir at the University if there had either been enough Kashmiri scholars or scholars directly interested in Kashmir on its faculty. It is hoped that where concern with research has been limited on the part of the ICSSR and the retiring faculty of AMU who man the University at Srinagar, the Kashmir government would take the initiative to encourage research on the Valley from different disciplinary perspectives.
