    Habibullah is of Kashmiri origin and until very recently the CIC of India. He has been involved in important events in J&K history and gives a very good historical overview of Kashmir, discusses where the problems started and what the current problems are with some if his remedies to resolve them.

    Wajahat Habibullah sahab contacted DFI and had to say this

    "I am not of 'Kashmiri origin', but of the J&K cadre of the IAS. I am from Lucknow
    Wajahat Habibullah"

    Thanks, I stand corrected. I assumed that being of J&K cadre he was from J&K as well.
