We have included Dr. Hassnain on the Major Players page for two reasons. Firstly, in terms of credentials, he is now the single most credentialed person on earth who has intimate interest in and thorough knowledge of the theory concerning a post-crucifixion life of Jesus Christ. Secondly, he is the former Director of Archives, Archaeology, Research and Musems for Kashmir, and was once listed in Who's Who in Archaeology. He was totally in charge of ancient Kashmiri documents that contain mention of Jesus Christ in India. His book, A Search for the Historical Jesus, was written in 1994.
Dr. Hassnain has graciously agreed to supply The Tomb of Jesus Christ Website with some of the most precious documents on earth relating to the post-crucifixion life of Jesus Christ. We are extremely happy to have his assistance. This is very meaningful to us, because it shows that even though we certainly are not as gifted as Dr. Hassnain, nor do we have as much access to material as he does, he has been impressed enough by our work to grace us with his help. He has provided many of the documents you see on the Ancient Documents page. We started this project without a single idea that anyone of the stature of Dr. Hassnain would ever become involved. So we are grateful and humbled by his decision to help us.
Dr. Hassnain was born in Srinagar, the city that houses the
tomb of Jesus, in the year 1924. He graduated from the Univeristy of Punjab,
as well as the Muslim University, in the field of law. After some work in
social work, he became a lecturer at SP College in Srinagar. He later became

of Faiths, London, Hazrat Inayat Khan Sufi Centre, New Delhi, and various

In The Tomb of Jesus Christ link, the reader will read some of the material offered by Dr. Hassnain from his book. We do not present all of that material at that link, so we strongly suggest that, like the other books we reference, the reader pick up a copy of Dr. Hassnain's important book.
