Soliha’s Book on Habba Khatoon

Soliha said her third book “Zoon” is the compilation of poems whose theme is the pain of Habba Khatoon.

all can just try and that’s what I’ve done,” Says Soliha Shabir.

This book will make our young generation understand the Kashmiri literature

and I hope this will ignite a ray of reading and writing in them, she said,
