Suzanne Marie Olsson, a New York-based researcher, claims that the tomb of Yuza Asaf, a Muslim saint, carries not its namesake but the earthly remains of Jesus. She is already testing remains from the Pakistani town of Murree that are believed to be those of Jesus’ mother, Mary. Olsson also believes Moses is buried in Bandipore in north Kashmir, the Islamic prophet Haroun at Harwan, on the outskirts of Srinagar, and Solomon at Takht-i-Suliaman in Srinagar. “You have more Christian holy sites than even Egypt or Israel,” she said in an appeal for help from Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah.
