This scholarly contribution tries to derive the impact of Muslim reform movements in Kashmir, which was actually a Muslim dominant during the reign of India’s British rule. The article studies the Muslim religious reform movements’ role in eradicating society’s social evils, besides throwing light on how modern education’s impact illuminated the young Kashmiri Muslims’ minds. More than this, the article explores these religious reform movements’ role in transforming the political structure by dint of imparting modern or latest forms of education. The role of these reform movements is also examined in transforming and uplifting the women subjects who were mainly deprived and were the powerhouses of social evils, discrimination and domestic atrocities among the Muslim subjects. The paper also throws light on how these social movements helped the women subjects to raise their social standards through the adoption of contemporary advancement, which was there due to the massive spread of education.
