No reliance can be placed on the Persian historical works, compiled during and after the Mughal occupation of Kashmir, for all these works are pro-Mughal and anti-Kashmiri. These historians, who were in the pay of the Mughal Emperors, shower praises in favour of their master and throw mud on the Kashmiri Sultans. In order to subjugate Kashmir, the Mughal Emperors Akbar in particular, started the policy of divide nad rule, by inciting sectarian hatred among the Muslims of Kashmir. These throns of communal hatred have even influenced some among the later Kashmiri historians like Mohammad Azam Deedamari. I did see all sources, which are not contemporary and picked up some little information from them.
