The Pakistani artist Salima Hashmi has uncovered new letters between her parents, the poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz and his English wife Alys George.
A selection has been posted online, including one from Faiz in Lahore to to Alys in Srinagar in 1947 - and concerned about the Partition turmoil in Punjab and the impact of the Radcliffe award.
Alys and Faiz married at Pari Mahal in Srinagar in 1941 - Sheikh Abdullah solemnised the nikah. Her sister Christobel married Dr M.D Taseer, a Marxist and college principal in Srinagar - their son Salman Taseer was governor of the Pakistan province of Punjab and was assassinated in 2011 over his stand for reform of the blasphemy laws.
UPDATE: We've heard directly from Salima Hashmi that the ScrollIn article, which cites a letter it says Alys sent from Srinagar to Faiz in Lahore in 1947, contains a material error. She says: 'Actually the letter is erroneously attributed to my mother. Both letters are to her from my father. Both written to her in Srinagar from Lahore. He was working at the Pakistan Times which appeared in August that year. This error is because I made a verbal presentation at a Seminar in Bangalore...which included her letters written to him when he was in jail in the 50's . I have yet to find time to sort this one out!'
