The inspirational story of Shopian post Aug 5 2019.
#Article370
A #thread.

#Shopian is the smallest & the newest district in #Kashmir, located 20 km eastwards of #Pulwama, its bountiful apple crop 3.5 lakh MT/year ensures that there is minimal poverty in the area.

There is a strong sense of regional identity & #aspiration in #Shopian, however, repeated bouts of unrest over the last few years have disrupted its developmental trajectory, especially in 2016 after the #BurhanWani incident.

The post #Article370 transition in #Shopian was carefully directed & sublimely executed. The people showed great maturity & cooperated immensely, even as rumours of “outsider influx” & “demographic change” abounded.

One of the genres of writing that emerged in #Safavid Iran was triumphalist #Shii history and biographies that imagined a past connected to the sacred time of the Prophet and the Imams as continuous chains of notables figures who made contributions to #Islamic culture 1/
Perhaps the best example was the large work Majālis al-muʾminīn of Sayyid Nūrullāh Shūshtarī known as Qāżī Nūrullāh (d. 1610), scion of the Marʿashī sayyids, who settled in India, becoming judge in #Lahore and eventually dying, following the wrath of #Jahangir in #Agra 2/ ImageImageImage
The Majālis was written late in his life, a large #Shii history divided into (not surprisingly #12erShii) 12 sections: 1) places associated with the #Imams and #Shii communities such as #Kūfa #Kāshān and so forth 2) #Shii tribes and sayyids such as his own #Marʿashī lineages 3/

Grateful to a friend for picking up these volumes from #Iran of #Mahbubalqulub of Qutb al-Din Ashkivari (d. c. 1692) a student of #MirDamad on history of philosophy #IslamicPhilosophy 1/ ImageImageImageImage
The work comprises three volumes the first two of which appeared as critical editions with #MiraseMaktub in #Tehran around 20 years ago - there is still no edition of volume 3 #IslamicPhilosophy #HistoryofPhilosophy 2/ Image
Volume 1 is on pre-Islamic thinkers and has an extensive discussion on #Zoroaster as well as the Quranic sage #Luqman and a prophetic conception of the beginnings of philosophy with #Seth and then #Hermes_Idris following #Shahrazuri (d. 1288) 3/
