Not a new idea?
Visitors banned from Kashmir’s “Jesus” shrine
The idea that Jesus survived crucifixion and visited Kashmir was first raised in the 1973 book “Christ in Kashmir,” by local journalist Aziz Kashmiri. Several other books followed it.
First raised in a 1973 book? Mirza Ghulam Ahmad wrote about how Jesus survived crucifixion, migrated to Kashmir, died and was buried at the Shrine at Rozabal, in his book “Jesus in India” in 1896.
