Inshah Bashir, Kashmir's first wheelchair basketball player, belongs from the Budgam district. She represented India in the United States in 2019 and captained the J & K Wheelchair Basketball Women's team in the National Championship that same year.

With regards to her future plans, Inshah mentioned that besides playing and training her team, the major area of focus is to encourage differently-abled girls in sports, not just in Kashmir but across the country, and ensure that they have a say of their own.
