Associate Editor and researcher at the Portmir Foundation. Born and raised in England. Parents from Pakistan-administered-Jammu, from Mirpur which is not part of Kashmir Province or the Valley - these are themselves separate places; Mirpur is part of the disputed territory of Jammu & Kashmir "STATE". Love literature, poetry, film, art, music, sufism, Islam, travel, free thought, liberalism, and lots of other things. Have a particularly strong desire to learn about Indian history, the place my forbears are from, and I have no qualms identifying with India - partition made us 'Pakistanis' - not necessarily those of 'us' from 'Azad' Kashmir. I think partition was a bad idea, but I'm not averse to Pakistan either. I'm happy to have multiple identities and love the Pakistan of the ordinary person - the real Pakistan of the ordinary man, woman and children. Okay, the official bit... My opinions are not necessarily those of the Portmir Foundation; the Foundation does not do censorship and neither does it endorse my opinions; if you disagree with any us, and you're from our background, write your own opinion piece and we'll publish it.
