In the name Baramulla is derived from the Sanskrit Varahamula वराहमूल, a combination of Varaha the boar and the mule root or deep meaning "wild boar molar".

According to Hindu teachings, the valley of Kashmir was once a lake known as lake Parvatis Satisaras in Sanskrit. Ancient Hindu texts tell us that the lake was occupied by the demon Jalodbhava meaning "originated from water", while Lord Vishnu took the form of a boar and struck the mountain at Varahamula. This created an opening for water to flow out of the lake.

Modern Baramulla was called Varahamulaksetra or Varahaksetra in ancient times. Initially, it was the edge Huviskapura modern Ushkur.

Aastair lamb wrote in incomplete partition, roxford 1997, pp. 186-187:

Tribal leaders completely lost control over their men, an Orgy of killing was the result. Including in Saint Josephs College, convent and hospital, on the site of what was to become one of the most publicized cases the whole of the Kashmir conflict. Here nuns, priests and congregation, including patients in the hospital were killed, and at the same time, a small number of Europeans, in particular, Lieutenant Colonel A. D. Dyke and his wife, an Englishwoman preparing to leave the hospital that day with her newborn baby, mother Teresalina, a twenty-nine-year-old Spanish nun, in Baramulla only a few weeks, and the Mother Aldertrude, assistant superior, and one Mr. Jose Barretto, husband of the doctor, met their deaths at tribal hands.

Charles Chevenix Trench wrote in the border scouts 1985:

In October Of 1947. tribal lashkari hastened in lorries – undoubtedly with official logistic support – into Kashmir. at least one British officer, Harvey-Kelly took part in the campaign. It seemed that nothing could stop these hordes of tribesmen taking Srinagar with its vital airfield. Really didnt do anything, but their own greed. In the Mahsuds, in particular, ceased to plunder, rape and kill Indian troops were deployed and lashkari forced out of Kashmir Valley in the mountains. In the Mahsuds returned home in a wild mood, having Muffed an easy chance, lost the loot of Srinagar and made fools of themselves.

Sam Mancuso late field Marshal was a Colonel in the Directorate of military operations who went to Srinagar with V. P. Menon to assess the situation on 26 October 1947. He later said in an interview:

Fortunately for Kashmir, the tribes were busy raiding, raping all along. In Baramulla they killed Colonel D. O. T. dykes. Dykes and I have the same precedence. We made our first years of attachment with the Royal Scots in Lahore, in 1934-5. Tom went to the Sikh regiment. I went to the border regiment. The CP lost contact with each other. He became a Lieutenant Colonel. ID become a Colonel. Tom and his wife were vacationing in Baramulla when the tribesmen killed them.

Tom Cooper combat information group Air wrote: "the Pathans appeared foremost interested in looting, murder, robbery and other crimes against the inhabitants instead of a serious military action."

According to Mohammad Akbar Khan in his war for Kashmir in 1947 "weirdo, raiders delayed in Baramulla for two days for an unknown reason."

Late Biju Patnaik chief Minister of Orissa piloted the first plane to land at Srinagar airport that morning. He brought 17 soldiers from the 1st Sikh regiment, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Dewan Ranjit Rai. The pilot flew low over the airstrip twice to ensure that no raiders were around. Prime Minister Nehru was clear: if the airport was captured by the enemy, they were not on the ground. Taking a full circle, the DC-3 flew at ground level. The soldiers looked out of the plane and found the airport empty. The raiders were too busy, the distribution of the spoils of war among themselves in Baramulla.

Lieutenant Colonel Dewan Ranjit Rai immediately moved with his small platoon to Baramulla hoping to stop the tribal raiders at the mouth of the funnel, which opens at 5 kilometres East of Baramula into a wide valley. He led his men from the front and died from a gunshot wound the same day, 27 October 1947, Patan, and detained the hijackers on the day. And Indian troops flew into Srinagar the next day, they began to push the raiders back. It took two weeks for the Indian army to evict the raiders, who have joined the Pakistani regulars and well-entrenched, from Baramulla on 9 November 1947.

Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah told the UN Security Council on 5 February 1948: "the raiders came to our land, massacred thousands of people - mostly Hindus and Sikhs, but Muslims, too - abducted thousands of girls, Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims, looted our property and almost reached the gates of our summer capital Srinagar."

Robert Trumbull, new York times, November 10, 1947, a report from Baramulla:

"Their buses and trucks, loaded with booty, arrived every other day and took more Pathans to Kashmir. They supposedly wanted to liberate their Muslim brothers in Kashmir, but their main goal is to riot and loot. In this they made no distinction between Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims. The raiders advanced into Baramulla, the biggest commercial center of the region with a population of 11.000, until they were only an hour drive from the city. For the next three days they were engaged in massive plunder, rioting, and rape. No one is spared. Even the mission hospital St Josephs were brutally murdered".
