Kashmiri living around the globe including both sides of Line of Control would observe October 27 as black day as a protest against Indian occupation on the same date of 1947. The day of landing Indian troops on SrInagar Airport to capture the valley against the wishes of inhabitants is remembered as black day of Kashmir history. The back ground of the issue reveals a trade of a civilized country with a cruel local ruler. What a Historical Trade concluded on March 16, 1846 when British Government through Treaty of Amritsar transferred for ever an independent possession of Kashmir to Gulab Singh for his willingness to pay rupees 75 Lac out of the total amount of indemnity demanded by them. Basically the deal was selling of Kashmiri nation along with their mother land in the hand of Gulab Sing. The revealed deal made two nations dagger drawn to each other. It converted South Asian region into nuclear zone which resulted into four wars, coupled with a never ending arms race between the neighbours since 1947.

According to the spokes man of All Parties Hurriyet Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir since 1989 to 15 October 2012, total killing of innocent individuals were 93,801, Custodial Killings in various camps and jails were 6,996. Overall 1, 20,392 individuals have been arrested, structural damaged have been done to the property was 1, 05,955. Moreover 22,764 women have been injured and suffered with severe injuries, 10,042 women have been gang raped or molested and over 1, 07,441 kids have become orphaned.

'Kashmir Movement' basically started on the day when British have sold their territory. However, in 1931 struggle against Dogra rule came on lime lines when for the first time in the history, Kashmiri people openly opposed the cruelty of the rulers. In same year on July 13, twenty one (21) Kashmiri Muslims faced bullets and were martyred in Srinagar Central Jail. This day is known as Martyr Day of Kashmir and reminding us the blood of liberators.

According to the partition plan, Hindustan was supposed to be divided on the religion bases into two major states Pakistan and India. The instruments of agreement relating to the Partition of India, the rulers of princely states were to be given the choice to freely accede to either India or Pakistan. They were also asked to take into account the demographic nature, history, geography and future prospects of their subjects. British's never respected the rights of Kashmiri people; once again they left them on the mercy of Heri Sing in 1947. The Maharaja of Kashmir Hari Sing went against the will of predominantly Muslim majority and announced annexation of Kashmir with India. Actually almost 78.9% Muslims, 11.2 % Hindus and 8.6% Buddhas were inhabitants of Kashmir. The annexation of Kashmir with India was resulted due to an under hand deal between India and Lord Mountbatten.

Thus, the conspiracy against newly created Islamic state has been started that can be ascertain from these two too facts, firstly, latest changes of partition plan has restricted to Punjab boundaries till Ferozepur, according to initial Plan Floura ( Indian City now ) would have been the boundary line between Pakistan and India . One of the vital purposes of changing the partition plan could be that single land route leading to Kashmir started from Pathan kot should fell into the Indian lap. Second fact could be established from Jagmon's book "My Frozen Turbulence in Kashmir".

In that book he quoted Maharaja Hari Singh's letter of October 26, 1947 to Lord Mountbatten and latter reply to Maharaja on October 27, 1947. He stated that Maharaja Hari Singh said, "The conditions obtaining at present in my state and the great emergency of situation as it exists". Hari Singh further reveled that they do not have any option but to ask for help from Indian Dominion". He further explained that naturally they cannot send the help as asked by the Singh of India. Author of the book "Jagmom" have also expressed that Hari Sing against the will of the Kahsmiri nation had decided to attach the instrument of accession for acceptance and informed to the English rulers.

In turn, Lord Mountbatten consented Hari Singh's request and decided to accept the accession of Kashmir State to the Dominion of India. Lord Mountain has assisted Hari Singh while landing the troops to maintain law and order in Kashmir.

A book "Kashmir in Conflict" has unveiled the plot and indicated that Hari Singh did not reach Jammu until the evening of October 26. Anyhow, due to poor flying conditions, V P Menon was unable to get to Jammu until the morning of October 27, by that time Indian troops have been landed in Srinagar. Therefore, Maharaja's act of fraudulent has been proven because he would not have written the letter to Lord when agreement with Pakistan was already in force. In short capturing of Kashmir against masses desires have already been planned between Hari Singh, British's and Indian rulers.

On this fraudulent act of Hari and Britishes, Kashmiri and their Muslim brothers stood up for snatching their rights from the aggressors and prepared the force of locals Mujahids who started their march toward Jammu & Srinagar. On October 22, 1947 Pashtun tribesmen from North West Frontier Province of Pakistan, came all-out for the help of Kashmiri Muslims. The struggles of locals for their rights converted into first Indo & Pakistan war. India started defending the stance of Heri sing and physically landed her forces on Srinagar Airport. The war which started actually on October 21, 1947 has lasted in December 31, 1948. India occupies roughly 101,387 km² of Kashmir. Pakistan occupies 85,793 km² (Later divided into Azad Kashmir (13,397 km²) and Northern Areas (72,496 km²). The UN decided that the fate of Kashmir will be decided in a plebiscite by the incumbents of the area.

Anyway Indian rulers always tried to crush the Kashmiris through brutal actions of their armed forces. India always ignored UN resolution. Recently, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari while addressing UN forum, stated that Jammu and Kashmir was a sign of UN "failure". President Zardari's statement was objected by Mr. Vinay Kumar, Minister Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations. In the 67th Session of the United Nations General Assembly Mr. Kumar stated, said that Jammu & Kashmir is and has

always been an integral part of India. In fact, Indian Government and its agents might need to attend a refresher course before they are sent as representatives to the United Nations.

Kashmir was one among 560 princely states which had two choices before them; accession to India or to Pakistan at the time of partition. The majority Hindu states were either occupied or voluntarily join India. Given that Jammu & Kashmir is a Muslim majority, it is only just for it to accede to Pakistan. India has no legitimate claim on the people of Kashmir. Irony of the Issue is that Indian leadership does not want to live with peace and is reluctant to implement UN resolution on Kashmir. According to "Times of India" report of October 22, 2012, Indian Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on attacked Pakistan for fomenting terror in India, He accused that Pakistan is helping infiltration bids into Indian Territory and organizing attacks on military convoys in J&K to spread fear.

On contrary to it, India is involved in cross-border terrorism against Pakistan and dispatching terrorists in Balochistan and FATA while using Afghan territory. Her propaganda is aimed at negatively influencing the public opinions on terrorism and matters related to Indian armed forces brutality in Kashmir and Maoists area.

Firing on Malala yousafzai has also been carried out by Indian supported group of Taliban "TTP". The Indian home minister statement is giving clear indication that New Delhi is not serious in resolving regional the most sentive matter of Kashmir. Concluding, I would like to say that world community should interfere to resolve the issue between two nuclear states since any Indian misadventure may lead the world in new global nuclear war. In short India should respect the Kshmiri's opinions leave Kashmir and let Kashmiri decide to their fate.

In your dreams...

You also need to attend the refresher. Read the text of resolution

"The resolution recommended that in order to ensure the impartiality of the plebiscite Pakistan withdraw all tribesmen and nationals who entered the region for the purpose of fighting and that India leave only the minimum number of troops needed to keep civil order."

Will Pakistan agree to Pre-Condition????

Nice Theory

The theory is good to read. Though I am Indian, I too object cross border terrorism. If your statement is true in respect of baluch operators, most Indians will object the motive of RAW if your statement is true. But I feel bad when you write about Indian arrogance , you missed about the mumbai attack and other attack sponsored by ISI. May be your fear about silence killers of ISI made you not to reveal.

Pakistani leadership can play this master stroke

Pakistan has given conflicting signals in past. Musharaff accepted the LOC and opening of both sides of kashmir and make border meaningless. May be this could be the only realistic solution . Currently Pakistan is in no position to force india by proxies. Also if India also reciprocate in same coin then Pakistan will face revolt more severe in balochistan. Suggest that Pakistan should also go in for economic and defence union with India and open borders like Canada USA and make Kashmir issue irrelevant as not only Kashmir but whole of india will be open for Pakistanis to prosper. This is time Pakistani leadership can play this master stroke of Union with india and get Pakistani esteem back. Playing with proxies is like playing with fire as it may hurt Pakistan and it's society harder than India. Some of you may not like it, but this is only way out of this mess.

Reality for Pakistani Friends...!

I, with most of my fellow Indian countrymen are wondering why Pakistanis do not understand, they cannot take any land from India's hands through any form of coercing (read as terrorism, either form of bullying etc)..! Nobody can divide India because Kashmir is a muslim dominated state/ region. Muslims in India are integral part of our society and country as much as any other religious people are. Minorities are not facing genocide as they are facing that in Pakistan, though I admit there are minor cases of religious violence in India too. Pakistanis put religion above anything else in this world. If you consider Religion as a personal affair, most of the problem will be solved.
Another thing, India is a very strong country militarily as well as economically. It is not at all comparable to Pakistan at any point of time though there are brilliant and able people across Pakistan too. It is not possible for Pakistan to snatch a bit of land from India and India is not going to get the same by force from Pakistan too.

So let us be realistic, and as a common man, I can only see a solution to the problem of Kashmir is to make the LOC as a permanent International Border with less restricted access to the people of both sides of Kashmir. If this is not happening, it can be guaranteed that, this current fight will go on and go on till the earth exists...!

Looks like you are scared of nuclear war. As far as history goes, Indian agent may not need history lessons but certainly need to read the world version of history rather than Pakistani version of hisdtory where it also says 1971 war was won by Pakistan and then as victory celebration they donated Bangladesh to Benaglis . They also wanted thier troops to experience what it is like to be POW so they voulntarily became POWs of Indian army for experiencing it.

Mohan, United Kingdom - 26 October, 2012

Mr.Zaheerul Hassan needs to know the real history of Kashmir. Just by imagination and lies, the truth about Kashmir cannot be distorted. Look at Pakistan today without East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), which has repressed the bengalis, continues to repress the Baluchis and Sindhis. Pakistan has definitely fomented terrorism not only against India but to its neighboring countries, China (Xiaoping province), Afghanistan, besides its nationals caught red handed from Times Square, New York(USA), David Henley (Gilani), and many more. Zahreeul Hassan is not ashamed at all after so many terrorists have been caught and killed within Pakistan such as Osama Bin Laden. Still many are hiding under the patronizing Pakistan, Mullah Omar, Alzwhiri.
Can Zaheerul Hassan ask Pakistan government that why its called "Azad Kashmir" having its own president and prime minister, who cannot represent in UN. Because Pakistan is afraid that their hollow voices for "Plebiscite" will be subdued, if Kashmiri representatives will tell the real stories of atrocities of Pakistan carrying out in "Azad Kashmir".

Peaceful solution

The only solution of the problem is. in my opinion. to compel india to follow U.N resolutions by the world community.

Muhammad ismail, Pakistan - 30 October, 2012

Well ,the says quite a lot of things which surprises many Indians . He says I quote " according to partition plan Hidustan was supposed to be divided on religion basis in to two states " . On whose permission it was decided , Indians never agreed to any such thing ( Pakistan & UK did & reasons are well known )) . Everything the author builds on this basis falls apart at the first building block & that's the real reason why Pakistanis don't elaborate on the basic premise which was designed , created by U.K , happily consented by Pakistan but it ends there. India , Indians have never consented or agreed to any such contortions & knowing this Pakistani Establishment never broaden this which has no Indian consent but has been bulldozed /railroaded by British ( as today they openly admit it ) against the unwilling Congress. It stands till today . Hence everything the author builds backfires as Kashmir is /was always an integral part of India or what Pakis call as Hindustan . Rest is nonsense & bunkum which needs no explanation further . For this reason UK , keeps saying it won't intervene any longer as two are independent countries now . Pakistan refuses to comes to terms as it sees an opportunity for SOURING future relations which suits U.S. in its world view in those days . While U.S. , U.K happily moved out after using one of the two ( as idiot ) , while Pakistan keeps playing the worn out tape every week for last 70 years in the hope TRUTH can be ALTERED , one way it found is "REST OF WORLD AGREES , UN agrees , Resolution says , forgetting other parts of resolutions conveniently as it wont suit them . TOUGH LUCK ............

Pakistan "Vibrant" or "Violent"

Jinnah Ali the founder of Pakistan wanted a "Vibrant" Pakistan but it became a "Violent" Pakistan, the most dangerous country in the world. Terrorists find Pakistan as safe haven, great example, Osama Bin Laden the most wanted man, who lived for five years without any knowledge in the heart of Pakistan. Second in command, Alqeida leader Alzwahiri, Mullah Omar are also still hiding in Pakistan, at the behest of ISI patronage. SWAT valley next to Jammu & Kashmir are strong hold of Taliban and Alqeida, and many trained terrorists cross over to Kashmir to cause mayhem, which the author does not mention. These Pakistani terrorists threaten young Kashmiris to join them or kill them and when killed by Indian forces, its easy to blame for India state terrorism, this is what Pakistan wants, attempt which proved futile before. Afghanistans President Hamid Karzai, China President too complained that Pakistan outfits have been infiltrating in to their country and causing terror, forget about India, for which Pakistan is always at denial. Even prophet Mohammad comes in front of Pakistani (though it wont come), Pakistan terrorists will continue to foment terror with their ideology (supported by Zaheerul Hassan) within its soil, spreading it wings to neighboring countries and as much far it can to United States of America.
