Curfewed Night

One Kashmiri Journalist's Frontline Account of Life, Love, and War in His Homeland

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Since 1989, when the separatist movement exploded in Kashmir, more than 70,000 people have been killed in the battle between India and Pakistan over Kashmir. Born and raised in the war-torn region, Basharat Peer brings this little-known part of the world to life in haunting, vivid detail..

Peer reveals stories from his youth as well as gut-wrenching accounts of the many Kashmiris he met years later, as a reporter. He chronicles a young man’s initiation into a Pakistani training camp; a mother who watches as her son is forced to hold an exploding bomb; a poet who finds religion when his entire family is killed. He writes about politicians living in refurbished torture chambers, idyllic villages rigged with landmines, and ancient Sufi shrines decimated in bomb blasts..

Curfewed Night is a tale of a man’s love for his land, the pain of leaving home, and the joy of return—as well as a fiercely brave piece of literary reporting..

Great Read to know the truth

Fantastic view of an insider without any bias. Every Kashmiri can associate to most or all the stories in this beautifully woven carpet of stories.

Excellent Book (Must Read)

This book gives you a glimpse of the life of the people of Kashmir without any Bias. I am myself a Kashmiri and reading this book was very delightful, because this book tells you the truth.
