It is a story of a Kashmiri woman who married a Pakistani Army Officer so as to provide the Indian intelligence with invaluable information during the Indo-Pak War of 1971.
Sehmat devised unique ways in her quest to get closer to the top brass in Pakistan. She almost single-handedly torpedoed Pakistans war plans through indefinable courage, wit and determination and was responsible for saving lives of scores of Indian soldiers.
The story gives rare insight to the humble yet brave people of Kashmir who not only swear by India but also are willing to sacrifice their very being for the service of our nation.
According to Sikka, it was his anger against the many intelligence failures of the Indian Army during the Kargil war that gave him this fascinating story. In 1999, Sikka had gone to cover the Kargil war and research about various intelligence failures he had heard about.
During his research about various intelligence failures, questioning the patriotism of certain people in the Intelligence Department , an Army officer told Sikka that not everyone is the same, and he gave the example of his mother, much to my surprise. She married a Pakistani Army officer to provide India with classified information during the 1971 war. She was a Kashmiri Muslim,” said Sikka to the Hindu.
Sikka then met the woman at her house in Maler Kotla, in Punjab. During his conversation with this feisty lady, the author came to know that she was the daughter of a rich businessman in Kashmir.
According to the plan of Indian intelligence, was married to a Pakistani army officer to provide India with classified information during the 1971 war.
The most important information provided by Sehmat was Pakistan’s plan to sink INS Viraat, which helped in saving this pride of India!
