Short synopsis of the documentary - Bring Him Back

Shamli Begum 79, mother of Maqbool Bhat (often known as The Che Guevara of Kashmir), has been campaigning for the last 30 years for her son's remains to be given back to her. The Indian government buried him temporarily in Tihar Jail in New Delhi after hanging him in 1984. She writes a letter to the President of India, but gets no answer and she travels to different holy Sufi shrines for Manat (prayer) for her son and her mission to bring back her sons remains to Kashmir before she dies. In between her efforts for her son’s remains, she explains the story of Maqbool Bhat, what he did in his life for freedom and justice in Kashmir, and the role of India and Pakistan. She hopes for an international campaign to get justice. www.bringhimback.info
