For 90 minutes, while their team plays, people of the war-torn Indian region of Kashmir forget curfews and protests and enjoy normality.
The rise of Real Kashmir FC is a fairytale. It was created three years ago by a Kashmiri Hindu and a Kashmiri Muslim to show the ‘real’ face of Kashmir with boys playing football and families cheering them on instead of the usual images of violence in this conflict zone over which India and Pakistan have fought two wars.
Davie Robertson – former Aberdeen and Rangers star - has left everything behind and moved to India to manage the team. It's football in the danger zone, can he make it work?
