Emergence of Modern Kashmir, A Study of Shaikh Mohammad Abdullah’s Role
Mohit Kumar Attri and Dr. Jayanti Lal Khandelwal
The demands of Shaikh Mohammad Abdullah for modernization of administrative machinery, freedom of press, platform and religion, improvement in education and health care all indicates matured political mentality of Shaikh Abdullah. Undoubtedly, in his formative phase he had relied much on Punjabi Muslim Organizations and Public opinion and used Islamic institutions and symbols to create a mass base and a pressure on state but it should not be counted as a lacunae since mass psyche was such that nothing except religion would have much influenced there mind. Also, with the development of political consciousness, Shaikh Abdullah too switched on to use economic and other non-religious issues to propagate his political philosophy. He also distanced himself from the Punjabi organizations once he realized that these were turning more com munal and were more concerned for their own betterment and less of Kashmiri masses.
