After visiting the tomb of Sayyad Nasr-ud-Din aka Yuz Asaf, Reverend H.U. Weitbrecht wrote an anonymous letter that was published in the Epiphany of April 11th, 1903. The title of that essay was “The Truth About The Tomb of Yus Asaf known as Rauza Sahib Srinagar”. This evoked a response by the Review of Religions. After this exchange, Reverend H.U. Weitbrecht wrote another letter to the Epiphany which was published on June 27th, 1903, that letter was entitled
“The Srinagar tomb of Sayyad Nasr-ud-Din”. The ROR of Nov-Dec-1903 gave a few direct quotes, we have posted them in the below.

Reverend H.U. Weitbrecht explains how he went to Mohalla Khanyar, in Srinagar, Kashmir in the early part of 1903. He asked the locals about the tomb of Yuz Asaf and etc. Reverend H.U. Weitbrecht proved that there was no one buried in the alleged tomb of Yuz Asaf. The only person buried there is Syed Naseer ud Din, the other casket is a fake. Reverend H.U. Weitbrecht accused Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and the Ahmadiyya Movement of academic dishonesty.  He comments the building itself is less than 200 years old (see the direct quotes in the below). The editors of the ROR then forget that there are lots of Shia’s in Kashmir, and in-fact, the Shia-invasion (see the Shah-Mir Dynasty) happened roughly in 1381-1561. Nevertheless, during the Shah-Mir Dynasty, it seems that Syed Nasir ud Din came to Kasmir and died therein, he was also a Shia-sufi. The Shah Durrani empire took over next and ruled from roughly 1561 until 1751 the Mughal empire took over Kashmir and had a hardline policy towards the Shia’s. This was followed by the Shah Durrani empire. They wrote about the tomb of Syed Nasir ud Din and claimed it was also called “Yuz Asaf”. The Sikh’s took over in 1820 and didn’t give up Kashmir until 1947.

Direct quotes from the ROR of Nov-Dec-1903, wherein they quote “The Srinagar tomb of Sayyad Nasr-ud-Din” by Reverend H.U. Weitbrecht

1—-“””The men at his tomb stumbled over the name of Yus Asaf and pronounced it in different ways, as if it were unfamiliar, and they had recently been visited by followers of Mirza sahib, who doubtless tried to impress it on them”””

2—-“”The only name connected with in which the neighbours readily gave us is that of Sayyad Nasr-ud-Din. Without, therefore, accepting their testimony as unimpeachable, I have used this as the most probable name of the buried saint” (viz., Prophet Yuz Asaf).

3—“”The tomb of Sayyad Nasr-ud-Din is not generally known as that of prophet Yus Asaf””
