About the Book

From the Commonwealth Prize-winning author comes another intense story from Kashmir

Commandant Abdul Aziz, Special Forces, Kashmir, is a legendary police officer in the Valley, albeit not always for good reasons.

And then one day he disappears.

His daughter, Zoonie, a human rights activist has to return home for her missing father. Bizarre events unfold in the ensuing night at a safe house where she’s forced to stay, and she comes face-to-face with the most disturbing truth of her life, and of the lives of her father and half-brother.

Through the eyes of the daughter are seen the dilemma and the moral crisis of a legendary police officer torn between his past and present, duty and desertion, loyalty and treachery, and right and wrong.

Award-winning author Siddhartha Gigoo’s The Lion of Kashmir is not just a story of a father’s and daughter’s intrepid struggles in Kashmir, but also the story of present-day Kashmir itself.
