Kashmir

History of Kashmir prb goes like this…i’ll jus tell the brief outline…

At the end of WW2, Britain had a huge military debt on India but doesnt have the monetary fund to clear it as its own infrastructure was highly devastated in the war. The only way to clear that was thru some kind of trade and British made this wonderful plan to leave India in an insurgency so that it wud b tended to buy weapons frm the west. Then the proposal for freedom for India came and it was a general truth tht princely stated were given the right either to annex either with any of the partitioned nations or remain independent. This was an awesome strategy to leave as many parts possible of a country and then enjoy the fruits later. Thanx to Sardar Patel thier plan cudnt becum successful.Ok then both India and Pakistan were trying to annex as many princely states as possible. Kashmir was one of the states which wanted independent existence(other 3 wr Bhopal, Hyderabad and Junagarh). Pakistan had an eye on both Junagarh and Kashmir because both were border states. It also didnt want Hyderabad to get it annexed to India and was sending insurgents there in the name of religion.(One unbiased point is that the annexure of Junagarh was on religious basis only). Now Kashmir had more muslims and Pakistan was seeing the success of Sardar Patel and it didnt want to miss the chance with Kashmir so it did an attack with its army in disguise of insurgents. During tht time military of independent states was still unofficially in the British hands. Point to be noted that most of the Indian military was busy in riot affected areas then. They didnt give the mobilisation oreders because they knew that it cud be a fruit bearing issue for them. And Pakistan captured some parts of the Kashmir and in the same time Maharaj Hari Singh signed the annexure statement with India to get military assistance. Point to be noted that most of the Indian military was busy in riot affected areas then. Till the army cud be mobilised, Pakistan captured some parts of the Kashmir. And a line called LOC was made with Nehru making a blunder of agreeing to consensus in Kashmir under UNO which never happened because at some point or other one of the countries backed off of the consensus proposal. India’s argument is that Hari Singh has signed the annexure document so Kashmir is a part of India. While Pakistan doesnt agree to the document because Kashmir is has more muslim population and hence it should be annexed to Pakistan as per the India Independence act. Although as time changed they changed the propoganda to “Freedom of Kashmir” and call the terrorists(Indian perspective) as freedom fighters. Kashmir is a very strategic territory from military point of view. Himalayas there act as a perfect wall. More than a strategic position, it has become an ego issue in these 60 years for both the countries. And no one want to loose its parts as it can create an huge impact on the integrity of the nation. Askai Chin was again a big strategic area which was handed to China by Pakistan in lieu of arms trade. Both Lal Bahadur Shastri and Indira Gandhi got a perfect chance of trading Kashmir with the Pakistani areas captured by Indian militray in 1965 and 1971 respectively. But at that time India was hugely dependent on many countries even for food. (Wheat was imported from US till late 60s). And those countries wanted to sell weapons also which were a big source of income for them. If the issue was solved then there wudnt be any conflict. So the prisoners were just made free and the captured land was given as it is(It is an open fact). The best solution at this date is to make LOC as the International border. Then all the problems wud be solved. Because none of India or Pakistan will part with its peice of Kashmir. More than that both the sides should understand the fact that its all the strategy of west to grow thier economy by keeping us in a war state. Even Russia also wants Kashmir issue to be alive. After the break up of Soviet Union, its economy is highly dependent of arms trade which it does with China, India, North Korea, Cuba, eastern European countries etc. American president sell advanced navy carriers to Pakistan and makes an offer to us for F-16s n F-18s. Its upto the people and government of the both sides to understand that we are not enemy of each other but our common enemy is that which is growing at the cost of us.

  1. Kashmir Banaiga Pakistan

    Kashmiris have lost 100,000 lives for “tehrik e ilhaq e Pakistan”. Ladakh now is a Muslim majority area. Why didn’t you go there? The people of Srinagar are under occupation, under threat of rape, killing, and forced deportation. How can a person with a knife on his/her head be able to tell the truth? They are not free to say what they want to Indian newspapers. Taking a poll in occupied Paris would have shown similar results.

    Occupied Srinagar is influenced by the Kashmiri traitors Abdullah and sons who sold out to India and even changed the name of their party “Plebiscite Front”. The question of an “independent” Kashmir is a red herring, a conspiracy and false trial balloon floated by India to keep it under her wraps. It is a non-starter. Selling Pashminas is a not an economy. Kashmir would be subservient to India.

    After Gurdaspur, a Muslim majority area was illegally given to India Kashmir’s link is to India. Why waste people’s time to ask such silly questions? The Naxalites want independence. Why doesn’t India give it to the millions.

    According to the “1946 Act of Independence”, the more than 500 states had only two choices, either join India or join Pakistan. There was no third choice. Hyderabad tried to exercise the third choice, and faced Indian Police action and elimination. Manvanagar and Junagarh acceded to Pakistan, but Indian forces occupied them.

    “The Muslim ruler of Junagarh, a state with Hindu majority population, announced his decision to join Pakistan. India responded by aiding and abetting the establishment of a so-called “Provisional Government” of Junagarh on Indian territory, which attacked Junagarh with Indian connivance and support. Subsequently Indian forces also invaded Junagarh, despite protests from Pakistan, in order to “restore law and order”. A farcical plebiscite was organized under Indian auspices, and India annexed Junagarh. Similarly, in Hyderabad, a Hindu majority state, the Muslim ruler of the state wanted to retain an independent status. India responded by attacking Hyderabad and annexed the state by force. India sought to justify its aggression against Hyderabad and Junagarh on the plea that the rulers of Junagarh and Hyderabad were acting against the wishes of their people.”

    Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was the last Pakistani head of state to mention Junagarh and Manvanagar. When I was growing up our Pakistani atlases showed Junagarh and Manvanagar as Pakistani territory.

    The occupied territory of Junagarh is located in current Gujarat.

    The status of Kashmir is disputed. This is what the UN says. This is what the world says.

    India claims that the original article of accession to India has been “lost”, if it ever existed. The article of accession was never actually presented to the United Nations. The article of accession as presented to Lord Mountbatten had serious forgery issues based on the date and where and when it was signed. Apparently Hari Sing was not present in the place where it was purportedly signed.

    Alister Lamb has written a book on the subject, and I have written many articles on it, even posted on the BJP website. The current president of Azad Kashmir is fully aware of the discrepancies, and started mentioning this fact on Geo TV last week and was rudely interrupted by Mr. Sheheryar. I wonder why? If Kashmiris are being asked the question of independence than all the 500 states of the Subcontinent should be asked the same question, Awadh, Goa, etc etc. Mizuram, Nagaland, Hydrabad should all be given independence.Lest some traitors forget, I repeat:—- “Batt keh rahay kaa Hindustaan–Kashmir Banaiga Pakistan”. Kashmir is Pakistan’s “shehrag’. Pakistan was created on the “Two Nation Theory” where as the Muslim majority areas formed Pakistan. There is no confusion about the TNT. one of our leaders said, “we will eat grass for a thousand years, if we have to, but ‘Kashmir baniaga Pakistan’ “. Everything else if nonsense. No geopolitical realities can change truth from falsehood.
