One of my dramatis personae is Hashum Qureishi (64) who reportedly now lives in the Nishat area of Srinagar, Kashmir, plays golf and advocates peace between India and Pakistan.
In 1971 Hashum was just 16 years of age when he and his cousin Ashraf hijacked an Indian Airlines flight from Srinagar and took it to Lahore on 30th January, ironically the commemoration of the Mahatma's martyrdom.
Pakistan feted them as heroes of Kashmiri liberation, because Hashum had earlier been trained in Pakistan and sent back to India.
