Real Ghost Stories

Barnstorm Kashmir


During this summer vacation -- back in Kashmir -- every morning we would get up to hear the latest lowdown about Abdullah, the ghost in our neighbor's newly built home. My sis would religiously narrate the Jinn's slate of activities from the previous day. She would in turn get the dope straight from the horse's mouth - that is - lady of the haunted house.

Anyone who visited my neighbors' home would ostensibly find his/her shoes/sandals/floaters instantly thrown out of the place. The Jinn - they named him Abdullah -- seemed to harbor some kind of a strong revulsion for the footwear, I was told. In my characteristic style, I tried to rubbish the supernatural claims until my neighbor himself confided in me about the strange paranormal occurrence. He even invited me to witness the spectacle - shoes flying off - which I politely declined. On a personal note, I am a little scared of these phantoms, which tease at will.

A significant part of our idle talk invariably used to center around Abdullah, the boot hater. My pals -- Wasy, Raj and Salus -- were all curious, like me for the latest ghostly update. Stories like the Jinn swinging doors at odd hours or digging up the lawn at midnight or talking in eerie voices continued to come. Frankly I'd get goose bumps. The last I've heard -- on phone -- is that Abdullah has started talking in some exotic language and he still continues to chuck shoes out of the beautiful one-story house of my good neighbor.

Ever heard of a spick and span spook! Happens in Kashmir, only.

Hi Sameer,

Thanks for the story your name means cool breeze. Human body are made up of five elements but jinn's body are made up of one element fire due to which they tend to be angry.

Abdullah the jinn in your story may be he have died at a very young age or somebody during the ancient times would have called him for his personal purpose due to which he is living here. Jinn's are good as well as wicked.

It may be Jinn, Demons, Monsters, Humans or any animate objects everybody has to bow down to the command of God nobody is above him if he wishes he may send the jinn back to the other world. God Bless you & your family.

Hi Sam. I have heard that in naming a Jinn you grant it more power than it already has. As well as jesting with it. Jinn's are not to be "messed with", this is not personal experience speaking. I am only sharing what I have been warned. I agree with what Abby says. Some of us who have a connection with ghosts do try to free them, others of us do not know how. But there is a certain amount of respect given to the unexplained. Thank you for sharing your story.

Dear Sam,

Whatever one's belief, Jinns or not, an uninvited guest is still an uninvited guest. Personally, I do not relish using other people's negative situations as fodder for my own entertainment or another's entertainment, whether it be a story, gossip and the like. I don't feel it necessary to help the Jinn or the like out by adding to the negativity of the situation. Instead, I look for a solution to help those in such negative life situations and experiences.

I wish to be a part of the "soul"ution, not a part of the problem. It is my hope you will choose the same and choose to be a good neighbor. The use of spic and span is best used to clean out our own home first and then, help those we can along the way to clean out theirs, especially cleaning out "Abdullah's".

Blessings, Abby
