Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday asked Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar to protect the part of Kashmir’s history in Bihar where the exiled Kashmiri king lies buried.
He said that the grave of Yusuf Shah Chak lies far away from the Valley in a forgotten field of Bihar.
In a tweet Omar said, “I request @NitishKumar ji to protect this part of Kashmir’s history that lies far from the valley in Bihar. Forgotten in a field far away: Grave of an exiled Kashmiri king lies in ruins in Bihar – The Hindu”
It came in public after The Hindu reported over the encroachment of the land which is part of the graveyard of Kashmiri King Yusuf Shah Chak who was exiled by Mughal emperor Akbar and then after his death he was buried in Bihar.
Chak, ruled Kashmir from 1579 to 1586 and was one of the last native rulers of independent Kashmir.
