This refers to the article titled “Understanding Skeikh Abdullah” by his granddaughter Dr. Nyla Ali Khan. Nobody can deny the fact that Sheikh sahib created political consciousness among Kashmiri Muslims and gave them the sense of selfhood. But as I have already stated in my article “Sheikh Abdullah a Political sufferer” on his 31st death anniversary, he is paying the price for having lived and died as Indian nationalist, though he was never accepted to be so. He probably never realized that it is not the morals but the might that rules the world. As long as the political and economic aspirations of the divided Kashmir as promised by him in the “Naya Kashmir” dream remains unachieved, he shall continue to face the political audit not only by the younger generation but also by those who are yet to be born.
