Gurpal Singh, in Journal of Advances in Science and Technology | Science & Technology


In this very article I am not concerned here not with thehistorical demography or with the demo graphical history. We are concernedhere, more with the hard facts than historical developments. From thethirteenth or fourteenth century, there were tribal invasions over Kashmir,from the Mongols, Afghans, and Turks. These people had nothing in common withthe local population. In spite of this is how, the Kashmiri society, especiallyfrom the valley is made of different tribes, and as such, a heterogeneoussociety. This aspect cannot be lost sight of, while dealing with the subject.
