The details

Maqbool Sherwani was a Kashmiri youth and National Conference member, who delayed the march of Kabali and Pakhtoon tribesmen from Pakistan and rebel forces (of then Kashmir State) in Baramulla, in October 1947. In this manner, he played an important role in buying time for Indian troops who landed in Srinagar once the accession was accepted. He is the most loved person in major parts of Kashmir as he is considered to be the man who let the accession of Kashmir with Pakistan go out of hands.

Writer Mulk Raj Anand wrote an account of Maqbool Sherwani's story in his novel, Death Of A Hero.
