DESTRUCTION OF DHU’L KADR KHAN ~ REVENGE OF KASHMIRI HINDUS!!!

in 1320, Zulju or Dhu‘l Qadr Khan invaded Kashmir at the head of a large army. The Mongols plundered and enslaved the people, burnt down buildings and destroyed crops. In the words of Jonraja, “Kashmir presented a piti­ful spectacle. Further pitilessly wailed and moaned when father fought his son. Brother separating from his brother lost him for ever…Depopulated, un­cultivated, grainless the country of Kashmir”

‘Zulju’ who is known to have caused huge destruction in Kashmir that earth turned black as he left no house, existing grains, cattle-shed and crops without setting them on fire. For eight months he wreaked havoc in the valley until the commencement of winter. He had to leave as there was no food left.

He left with his slaves, who promised him a shorter route to India to escape snow. To avenge themselves they directed him to the most hazardous route knowing that the tyrant and his army would not survive the snow and the harsh terrain. The whole army along-with the prisoners is believed to have perished on a hilltop near Banihal Pass.
