AMMU AND KASHMIR A LONG WITH ITS CITIZENS ARE A FUNDAMENTAL PART OF PAKISTAN: 
HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

Both Dr. Alama Mohammed Iqbal (May Allah be pleased with him) and Nawaz Sharif Prime Minister Elect of Pakistan, along with many other esteemed members of Pakistani society are Muslims from the Kashmir region. It will not be an exaggeration to state that Pakistan is largely being run by the Muslims from Kashmir. Azad Kashmir is constitutionally inscribed as the sixth province of Pakistan. The main purpose behind all of our efforts are to liberate 42,000 square miles of the state of Jammu and Kashmir (also known as Maqbooza Kashmir) from India, and, the 14 million inhabitants that live there along with its subsequent accession to Pakistan. We pray that Allah the Almighty help us in this matter and all others in establishing justice.

PRESS RELEASE: MAY 29, 2013

Chairman Islamic Political party Maqbooza Jammu and Kashmir Mr. Mohammad Yousuf Naqash in a party meeting in Srinagar on 28, may appealed United  Nations Organization, European  Parliament and O I C to support Kashmir Cause in the interest of humanity and take serious and influencing steps for stopping human rights violations by Indian forces in Kashmir and also press for realizing the inalienable right, freedom of Kashmiri people in accordance with the United Nations Charter on the principle of Right to Self Determination. He further said that Maqbooza Kashmir dispute is not only inciting violence, it is also potential threat to the world peace. Further delaying freedom to the people of Kashmir may possibly breed and nourish more violence and such situation will prove dangerous and destructive for whole world including south Asia. Hence keeping in view the present violent and uncertain situation there remains no alternative than to accept and recognize the Right of freedom of Kashmiri people, who are determined not to surrender their freedom right and will accept nothing less than freedom because they have been perpetually struggling and supremely sacrificing since seven decades for this birth right and will never allow their struggle and sacrifices go waste. While paying homage to Asiya and Neelofer our two daughters who were raped and brutally killed by Indian forces Mr.Naqash said that the threat to the honor of our women remains till occupation continues.

SUPPORT FOR PAKISTAN IS ESSENTIAL AS IT IS THE ONLY STATE PUSHING FOR MAQBOOZA KASHMIR’S RIGHT TO SELF-DETERMINATION: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

SUPPORT FOR PAKISTAN IS ESSENTIAL AS IT IS THE ONLY STATE PUSHING FOR MAQBOOZA KASHMIR’S RIGHT TO SELF-DETERMINATION: 

ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

It is essential to both realize and acknowledge that in order for Maqbooza Kashmir to win over its freedom, it must be represented by an actor which has political agency and legitimacy as a nation state in front of the international community. As such, all those which stand for the cause of Maqbooza Jammu and Kashmir should put their support behind the Pakistani government as this is the only government fighting for the emancipation of the occupied territory. The right of self-determination is an essential democratic right. Despite its claims of democracy; the Indian government has been both suppressing this right and institutionally subordinating and murdering the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir. With this reality recognized, all those who stand for justice must put their full political support behind the Pakistani government and its efforts for the Kashmiri people receiving their right to self-determination. It is pertinent than not to disseminate or propagate any false misinformation which inaccurately portrays the function and true role of the Pakistani state.

REPLY TO DR. SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY THE JANATA PARTY CHIEF’S CONTRADICTORY LOGIC AND HYPOCRISY REGARDING THE STATE OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

REPLY TO DR. SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY THE JANATA PARTY CHIEF’S CONTRADICTORY LOGIC AND HYPOCRISY REGARDING THE STATE OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR: 
HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

Besides the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Dr. Subramanian Swamy the Janata Party chief has conveniently forgotten to mention that many other occupied territories such as the Sikh Homeland Punjab (Khalistan), Manawa, Goa (former Portuguese colony), Hyderabad, and Junagarh are also coincidentally “integral” parts of the Indian state. In addition to the above, Dr. Swamy also avoided any discussion or any use of force regarding Aksai Chin, the 11,000 square miles which were captured by the Chinese government in the Indo-China War. Yet despite the facts presented above, India seems to want to disseminate an aggressive stance towards Pakistan. It is clear that the Indian government, the so called “largest democracy in the world” is taking an extremely hypocritical stance in its foreign policy. Despite claiming to be a democracy, it is putting all morals and ethics aside and flexing its muscles, only when it perceives that its opponent is inferior to it in military capability. However, when faced with a challenger which is perceived as a grave threat, all of the sudden morals and ethics becoming very relevant. It is essential to question why Dr. Swamy is proposing the use of military force against the Pakistani state, yet on the other hand has taken such a passive stance against China. Should such action be referred to as strategy, hypocrisy, or just mere cowardice? On one hand India claims to be a democratic state. On the other according to Indian states double standards, the Jammu and Kashmir issue deserves no diplomatic discussion with Pakistan whatsoever. The Indian state needs to make a decision with consistency on what stance it will take. It is also important to note that all this ignores the millions of individuals that have been systematically subordinated and enslaved during Indian rule within the state. They are essentially the victims of the Indian states greed in advancing its overall material power.

Although Bangladesh (formerly known as East Pakistan) was dismembered from Pakistan, this division was not motivated by the desire to accede to India.  Rather, this was because of the simple fact that Pakistan had lost in the war against India in 1971. As such, the Two Nation Theory still stands and remains the basis of the division of the Indian subcontinent. Why is it that division based on religion stands relevant for all Hindu majority princely states that were forcefully occupied by India, however, when the issue of Jammu and Kashmir arises; the state becomes an “integral part of India”. The image that Dr. Swamy would like to provide of Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru is just mere opinion and speculation. Actual recorded facts and history acknowledge that he was the Prime Minister of India and as such, he represented the Indian state and its interests. The Kashmiri claim and Pakistan’s assertion of it as its rightful state is solidified and back through a UN resolution affirming the right to self-determination (agreed to by India) which is a fundamental democratic right. It is the Indian government, despite claiming to be the world’s largest democracy which stands as a fundamental impediment for the people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (also known as Maqbooza Kashmir and by the UN Internationally Disputed Areas of Jammu and Kashmir)) to practice their right of self-determination not Pakistan.

Therefore, it is essential to realize that when we asses India’s human rights track record within the occupied territory of Jammu and Kashmir; it becomes evident that the state cares little of its 14 million inhabitants as it well aware that they are the legal citizens of Pakistan. On the contrary, the Indian government professes that the state is its integral portion only because of the resources in the region and the geostrategic interests that it serves. The Indian state is only interested in advancing its material power. However, the rampant hypocrisy and cowardice of the Indian state is exposed when despite being divided on the Two Nation Theory, it flexes its muscle against Pakistan which it perceives is a less capable military opponent, however, when it comes to Chinese imposition into Indian territory, it would not dare to profess the use of any military option. This is the reality of the Indian state which seeks to give no regard to inherent rights, morals and ethics of the people of which occupy its “integral parts” and rather, while claiming to function democratically behaves under the law of anarchy. As such, Pakistan should not be impervious in taking an aggressive and firm stance out of fear from India. International law, justice, morals and ethics all are on the side of Pakistan. Unity and strength are the only precursors for success and can serve as an emancipating force. Pakistan must expose the Indian hypocrisy to the international community and put greater diplomatic pressure regarding the Kashmir right of self-determination in order for the Indian government to live up to its hypocritical designation as the world’s largest democracy.

J&K AN INTEGRAL PART OF INDIA NO DIALOGUE WITH PAKISTAN ON KASHMIR PLEBISCITE NEHRU'S PERSONAL IDEA NOT INDIA'S PROMISE WE ARE READY TO WAGE WAR AGAINST PAK. TO LIBERATE PoK: Dr. Subramanian Swamy in Kashmir

For the first time after Dr. Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was killed in a Kashmir jail during Sheikh Abdullah's reign an Indian stalwart confronted the nation particularly the people of Kashmir last week in a straight talk with the reality of the Kashmir situation.  Thus boldly advised Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of the Janata Party,  the people of Kashmir that they should forget about Pakistan and live like true Indians. Disregarding the presence of terrorist, separatist, Islamist and militants and trouble makers Dr. Swamy declared that Kashmir is an integral part of India and that reality will never change.  Kashmir problem is Jawaharlal Nehru's special gift to India but it won't be allowed to change the ever lasting relationship between Srinagar and New Delhi declared Dr. Subramanian Swamy, addressing a crowded press conference in Srinagar.

NO COMPROMISE ON KASHMIR:   
 Dr. Sway advised Kashmiris to forget about Pakistan and live like true Indians. India will stay here for ever since historically Kashmir is an integral part of India.  Even during the modern times the accession of the state with the rest of the country ratified this irrefutable fact. Under no circumstances will India compromise on Kashmir he assured his audience.

WE ARE READY TO WAGE WAR TO LIBERATE POK:
 Without mincing words he told the nation that Kashmir is India and we have every intention of taking back the Pakistan occupied part of Kashmir as that occupation has been illegal from day one. To achieve that goal we are ready to wage a war against Pakistan the Janata Party chief said.Dr. Swamy declared that NDA will form the next government in the country and the Janata Party will be an ally of that Govt. “We will ask the NDA Govt. to reconsider its policy on Kashmir".

NO TALKS WITH PAK. ON KASHMIR
 What Nehru and Vajpayee did about Kashmir is history. From now on there will be no talks on Kashmir with Pakistan.Kashmir is not a dispute so there should be no talks on it. It is only a question of removing the illegal occupation by a neighboring state which does not know how to maintain good neighborly relations with us.Kashmir is a part of India and of all the people Kashmiris should understand it well without any misgivings. Those who tell you otherwise are misleading you.

NEHRU TOOK KASHMIR TO UN WITHOUT AUTHORITY: PLEBISCITE NEHRU'S IDEA NOT INDIA'S PROMISE:
Acting unilaterally, even without taking the Indian Cabinet in to confidence, Jawaharlal Nehru took the Kashmir issue to the United Nations where plebiscite was born.  So those people seeking plebiscite should contact Nehru not India for this purpose.

Swamy however, favored dialogue with China saying that talks between India and China involved border dispute and not Kashmir issue.He told Pakistan to take care of its own provinces such as Baluchistan and stop interfering in the internal affairs of India.He asked the people of Kashmir to compare the progress made in J&K as against the PoK which was forcibly occupied by Islamabad. That should open your eyes and expose the reality of Pakistan.

Some of the headlines in the coverage of Dr. Swamy's straight talk in the English and vernacular media of Kashmir included:
 KASHMIR IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF INDIA         
ACCESSION OF J&K WITH INDIA IS FULL AND FINAL
 NEHRU NEVER DISCUSSED THE PLEBISCITE ISSUE IN THE INDIAN CABINET. IT SIMPLY WAS HIS PERSONAL IDEA AND NOT A PROMISE BY INDIA
 J&K AND PoK ARE INTEGRAL PART OF INDIA
 INDIA SHOULD NOT HAVE NAY DIALOGUE WITH PAKISTAN ON KASHMIR
 IN TIMES OF PEACE JANATA PARTY THREATENS ALL OUT WAR WITH PAKISTAN
 NO DIALOGUE WITH PAKISTAN BUT WAR

16 years on, son looks for father’s grave

Rejects ‘blood money’, says ‘Govt gunmen shattered my happy family’

Papa Kistwari’s Paap

ARIF SHAFI WANI

Srinagar, May 22: For Zahoor Ahmad Mir of Nishat locality here, every day begins with a hope to locate his father’s grave, but to no avail. This has been a routine for the past 16 years.His father Ali Muhammad Mir (45) was allegedly abducted and killed by notorious government gunmen Papa Kishtwari on June 26, 1996. Sifting through piles of papers in his modest house at Ganaie Mohalla Brein Nishat, Zahoor Ahmad Mir recalls his ordeal and struggle since the day his father was killed. “For past over 16 years, I have been fighting to locate my father’s grave and get his killers punished. I have faced many tribulations and even threats but I won’t give up till I locate his grave,” Mir said and broke down.

Mir was living a happy family life till June 26, 1996 when his father went missing from high security Oberoi Crossing here. The hapless family lodged a missing report and police arrested one of the close aides of Papa Kishtwari. “Some policemen told me that during interrogation, he (Papa Kistwari’s close aide) confessed that my father was abducted and killed by Kishtwari,” Mir said. An FIR (16/2007) was lodged in Nishat police station against Kishtwari under section 302, 342, 364, 201, 120B RPC. Mir said despite the disclosure and FIRs the accused were not arrested. However, this did not deter Mir from pursuing the case through petitions and protests. Mir’s joys knew no bounds when Kishtwari was arrested in April 2007 when his act of encroachment on a local graveyard triggered off massive protests.

After police resorted to ‘dilly-dallying’, Mir had approached the State Human Rights Commission which had directed the then Director General of Police (DGP) to investigate the case through a special team. On July 5, 2008, the special police team finally filed a challan against Kishtwari in the killing of Ali Muhammad Mir in the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar. One of the prime witnesses in the case had deposed before the court that Ali Muhammad Mir was bundled in a white security gypsy near Oberoi crossing. “The gypsy belongs to Kishtwari’s close relatives who unsuccessfully contested elections. Ironically, Police failed to produce other witnesses in the case…it is going slow on the case. Though three accused included Kishtwari were arrested in the case but police have failed to locate my father’s grave or the weapons of offence,” Mir said.  Kishtwari had unsuccessfully contested Assembly elections of 1996. He had joined National Conference and remained a protected person till he was arrested in 2007. Subsequently the NC leadership expelled him from the party. 

Mir claimed that since 1996 he faced many threats. “Government gunmen many times threatened to kill me if I continue to pursue the case. Later on Court and SHRC directions, government allotted me two PSOs but later one of them was withdrawn,” he said. Braving all odds and threats, Mir offered stiff resistance and valiantly pursued the case. “Kishtwari’s relatives even offered me blood money of Rs 35 lakhs which is refused. I told them to show me my father’s grave and I will gift them all my property,” he said.  To protest against ‘dilly-dallying tactics’ by police, Mir has decided to hold a hunger strike on Thursday, May 23. “Government and police are hell-bent to safeguard the accused in my father’s killing. To register my protest against this, I will hold the hunger strike. Senior separatist leaders have assured me of full support,” he said. “My last wish is to locate my father’s grave and offer prayers for peace to his soul,” he said with moist eyes.

SECULARISM HAS NO BASIS IN MAQBOOZA JAMMU AND KASHMIR AND IS DISARTICULATED FROM THE REALITY ON THE GROUND: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


SECULARISM HAS NO BASIS IN MAQBOOZA JAMMU AND KASHMIR AND IS DISARTICULATED FROM THE REALITY ON THE GROUND: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

It is extremely important to realize that large swaths of the Indian subcontinent have been ruled by a Muslim leadership for over a thousand years. In particular, since the spread of Islam, Kashmir has always been ruled by Muslims. We are proud of our own Islamic history as we are Muslims and we do not identify with history that extends back 5,000 years as there is simply no basis to identify with it. In fact, it is a peculiar situation where one wonders how an individual would even want to identify with pre-Islamic times of ignorance which were wrought with infanticide (and continues to be), cremation of women upon time of the husband’s death, and widespread oppression by the strong on the weak. There has never been a situation where any establishment governing Kashmir has broken up identifying themselves as secular, or into any ethnic faction. As such, claims to secularism in Maqbooza Jammu and Kashmir are completely dis-articulated from both the history of this state, and, are disconnected from the overwhelming Muslim majority on the ground. Secularism is not the demand of the people! It is simply a basis which nationalists (a term alien to Islam) which make up an extremely small minority seek to legitimate their goals of attaining material and political power. The Indian subcontinent was divided on the basis of the Two Nation Theory of religious difference. Hindu princely states either acceded to India or were forcefully occupied by it. Just some examples are Hyderabad with standstill agreement with India and Manawa and Junagarh’s accession agreement with Pakistan but who were forcefully occupied by India. Even the Sikhs of Punjab, Khalistan of August 15, 1947 which are a completely distinct religion from Hinduism were also occupied and simultaneously homogenized in the Hindu identity. It is extremely hypocritical not to follow the same procedure with Jammu and Kashmir, a Muslim majority princely state before partition. As such it is imperative that Indian forces acknowledge the Two Nation Theory which the partition was based off of and withdraw its occupation forces from Maqbooza Kashmir for it to accede to Pakistan. Not only Qaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah (May Allah (SWT) be pleased with him) but all 180 million citizens of Pakistan, and, the Kashmiris of Maqbooza Kashmir stand firmly with the established fact that Jammu and Kashmir is the jugular vein of Pakistan.

Govt foils Eidgah march: Kashmir observes shutdown
Mirwaiz, Others under House Arrest

SHABIR IBN YUSUF

Srinagar, May 21: The authorities Tuesday foiled the Eidgah Chalo program of Hurriyat Conference (M) to commemorate the death anniversaries of Mirwaiz Moulvi Farooq and Abdul Gani Lone by putting senior separatist leaders under house arrest. Kashmir observed a shutdown in commemoration of the late leaders and victims of Hawal massacre.Officials said curfew or restrictions were not imposed in any part of Kashmir and the day passed off peacefully. In old Srinagar, contingents of police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were deployed at several places to thwart any march or protest demonstration. However, the movement of people was not restricted. Eidgah was out of bounds for people as the area was sealed by police and CRPF.Besides downtown, the civil lines area also observed a shutdown on the call of Hurriyat Conference (M).

In most parts of Kashmir, shops, business establishments, schools remained closed, banks and government offices witnessed thin attendance while public transport was largely off the roads.A senior police official in Srinagar said that Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and some other leaders of the conglomerate were placed under house arrest. The other leaders who were put under house arrest included Moulana Abbas Ansari, Shabir Shah, Agha Syed Hassan, Advocate Shahid-ul-Islam and Zafar Akbar Bhat.Reports of shutdown were also received from Baramulla, Kupwara, Sopore, Handwara and Bandipora towns of north Kashmir. However, reports from these areas added that thin public transport plied on inter-district roads.Reports from south Kashmir said Islamabad (Anantnag), Shopian, Pulwama and Kulgam districts also observed a shutdown.

HURRIYAT CONDEMNS GOVERNMENT ACTION:
Hurriyat Conference (M) has strongly condemned the Government action and thanked people for observing shutdown.A spokesman of Hurriyat (M) said: “The freedom loving people of Kashmir Tuesday observed a complete strike to pay tributes to Shaheed-e-Millat Moulvi Muhammad Farooq on his 23rd martyrdom anniversary and thousands of other martyrs who have offered their lives for the sacred cause of freedom. By observing the strike, Kashmiris have once again shown their resolve with the freedom struggle thereby openly expressing their desire to take the mission of the martyrs forward till it reaches its logical conclusion.”Hurriyat (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, strongly condemned the government restrictions to sabotage the Martyrs’ Week program. He said the program was devised “to pay tributes to Shaheed-i-Millat, Shouhda-e-Hawal, Shaheed-i-Hurriyat, Shaheed Maqbool Bhat, Shaheed Afzal Guru, martyrs of 2008, 2009, 2010 and all the martyrs who have laid their lives for the supreme cause of freedom.”

The Hurriyat spokesman said by imposing restrictions “and creating an atmosphere of fear depicts the sheer frustration of the government as they have miserably failed to suppress the sentiment of freedom rooted deep in the soul of every Kashmiri.”The spokesman said by putting leaders under house arrest, harassing party workers and sealing all roads to Eidgah depicts the helplessness of the government before the people's aspirations.The spokesman added that the claims of democracy and freedom of expression have fallen flat and “it shows how much the government is scared of the freedom sentiment.”Meanwhile, Head of the women’s wing of Hurriyat Conference (M), Yasmeen Raja lodged a strong protest at Rajouri Kadal here against the government ban on Eidgah chalo program and house arrest of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.

NUMBER OF MASS GRAVES INCREASING IN INDIAN-CONTROLLED KASHMIR: POSTED BY HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


NUMBER OF MASS GRAVES INCREASING IN INDIAN-CONTROLLED KASHMIR: POSTED BY HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


In its fresh round of investigations the association of parents of disappeared persons, an independent rights group, has come up with shocking numbers of presence of Mass graves in 5 districts out of the total 22 districts in Jammu and Kashmir. The research investigation has documented the existence of 7000 unmarked mass graves and they expect it to go as high as 10000 mark.

The issue of mass graves in Kashmir surfaced in 2005 when a disastrous earth quack hit Kashmir. Since then the number of mass graves across the region kept swelling:

Out of an estimated 7000 mass graves 2156 have been confirmed by the state human rights commission and 3744
continue to be under investigations.

The rights groups are pressing for impartial and independent investigations of the issue of mass graves arguing when countries like East Timor, Rwanda, Argentina and Bosnia could underwent such investigations what hinders international community to investigate the same in Jammu and Kashmir.

The APDP has also documented the cases of enforced disappearances in the region.The total number of missing men in the region has also crossed 8000 mark.

New Delhi denies any such allegations of rights violations in Kashmir and has maintained these men must have crossed over to Pakistan administered Kashmir for arms trainings.

Human rights defenders say the refusal to investigate the issue of unmarked graves and enforced disappearance of more than 8000 men in Kashmir has made the Indian State further culpable. They say New Delhi must allow an independent probe into these cases to show the innocence or complicity of its security agencies.

KASHMIR NATURAL PART OF PAKISTAN: MIRWAIZ 
POSTED BY HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


‘Mirwaiz Yousuf Shah Was Strong Proponent of Two-Nation Theory; Kashmiris Conscious of History’

ARIF SHAFI WANI

Srinagar, May 17: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday termed Kashmir dispute as a creation of ‘broken promises’ by India and said after partition in 1947, Kashmir by logic should have been natural part of Pakistan.“After partition Kashmir by logic should have been natural part of Pakistan. However, the then Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru promised to provide right to self-determination to Kashmiris. Despite lapse of over six decades, the promise is yet to be fulfilled,” Mirwaiz said while addressing Friday congregation at historic Jamia Masjid here.Elaborating, Mirwaiz said at the time of partition in 1947 it was natural that the political future of Kashmir had to be based on the two-nation theory as proposed by the Qaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

“For that reason Mohajr-e-Millat, Mirwaiz Yousuf Shah not only supported the two nation theory, but he called a meeting of Muslim Conference members and passed a resolution in its favour,” Mirwaiz said.He said those who write about Kashmir history should be careful while penning down the political events. “Kashmiri youth is conscious about history of Kashmir. The movement is in the hearts and minds of Kashmiris who have been offering unflinching sacrifices for the just cause. The dispute can’t be resolved bilaterally through trade and sports ties between India and Pakistan. Kashmiris must be involved as a prime party in any dialogue process between the two countries,” Mirwaiz said.He said till complete withdrawal of troops from Jammu and Kashmir, peace will continue to elude the state. “In presence of troops there is no scope for peace. Instead of confidence building measures, New Delhi has empowered its troops with unbridled powers like AFSPA. India through coercive measures wants to maintain status-quo in the state. But we will through peaceful means resist its suppressive tactics,” he said.

Mirwaiz said during his Pakistan visit last year, PML-N senior leader Nawaz Sharif had assured him that if he assumes power, resolution of Kashmir issue will be one of the priorities. “I hope Nawaz Sharif fulfills his promise,” he said.After his address at Jamia Masjid, Mirwaiz led a massive rally to adjoining Hawal locality to pay homage to 72 civilians who fell to bullets of armed forces during a funeral procession of his father Shaheed-e-Millat Moulana Muhammad Farooq in 1990.On the occasion, Mirwaiz said the sacrifices of Kashmiris won’t go in vain. “During the ongoing Hafta Shouhda (Martyrs Week), we want to show to the world that we have not forgotten sacrifices of our martyrs. Let us take a pledge to take the mission of martyrs to its logical conclusion. This would be the biggest tribute to the martyrs,” Mirwaiz said while the people reciprocated with pro-freedom slogans.

After receiving freedom from the British, the Indian government was able to mobilize a small minority of the Sikh population and occupy the Sikh Homeland Punjab (Khalistan) of August 15, 1947. The Indian government also forcefully occupied Hyderabad, Junaghar, Munwadar, and just as it had done in Punjab (Khalistan), a few Kashmiris also succumbed to India interests. Because of a small minority of Kashmiris sold out, India was able to legitimate its occupation under the guise of maintaining law and order and successfully occupy 42,000 square miles of Jammu and Kashmir also known as Maqbooza Jammu and Kashmir. Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru the then Prime Minster of India propagated to the international community that Kashmiris will be given a chance to express their own free will for their future.

However, as a precursor to this event in the third week of August 1947, the Maharaja of Kashmir Hari Singh, with the help of the Indian government killed more than 100,000 inhabitants of Jammu and the rest were given a stern warning to either leave the area, or prepare to die. As a result two million Muslim Kashmiris left the Jammu region and migrated to Pakistan. Due to the fact that Pakistan did not possess enough forces to fight, they called upon the help of Kashmiris and Pathans (Mujahedeen). They were able to free 4,200 square miles which is now known as Azad Kashmir. This group would have been successful in liberating the entire region; however, due to a few traitors who sided with those that just massacred their own people, Maqbooza Kashmir remains occupied by the Indian government for over six decades.

The fact remains that even until this day the original promise of fulfilling the Kashmiri peoples will has yet to be exercised by people of Kashmir. Their ability to practice this basic democratic right is being fundamentally impeded by one single actor on the table; the Indian government. It is essential to note that despite having no claim whatsoever to the region; India refuses to provide the people of Maqbooza Kashmir with the ability to determine their own fate. It is surprising than to note that some individuals within Azad Kashmir, similar to those who originally sided with the Indian government, and who are only concerned with their own political and material interests are propagating a very regressive message against the Pakistani government and damaging to the overall Kashmiri cause. Yet, the Pakistani government is the only political actor which supports the right to self-determination and that possesses agency in the international sphere, and, conversely, the only state with any legal claim to the territory and the people of Maqbooza Jammu and Kashmir. It is than India that is serving as the roadblock to solving the Maqbooza Kashmiri issue. It is also worth noting that many of these ill-informed individuals who speak out against their own state which has ironically sacrificed countless lives and are comfortably living without systematic oppression would never be able to speak out in occupied Kashmir.

The principle of “the victor’s justice” is thus only applicable to the Indian government as it is not even a legitimate actor within Kashmir and is trying to assert its position despite its illegal occupation on a Muslim majority Princely State (all the Hindu majority Princely States that were occupied or acceded to the Indian government). The original solution at the time of partition was the ‘Two Nations Theory’. The right of self-determination remains the only viable solution to the Kashmiri issue. Through this means can the people of Maqbooza Jammu and Kashmir decide themselves as to whether they would like to join Pakistan or India. Until then, all onlookers must reserve their judgment and put pressure on the Indian government as it is not only an illegitimate actor, but it is the one state fundamentally impeding Maqbooza Jammu and Kashmir’s right to self-determination.

PRESS RELEASE MAY 16, 2013

Chairman Islamic Political Party Maqbooza Jammu and Kashmir Mr.Mohammad Yousuf Naqash during corner meetings on 15th May at Batapora and Syedapora Dargah (Shrine) has said that friendship and trade links between Pakistan and India and peace, security and stability in south Asia and subcontinent is never possible until just, honorable and lasting solution of Kashmir. The bitter experiences of past are the clear evidential arguments in this regard. Mr. Naqash further said that peace, security and stability is the utmost need of people of Kashmir because they have suffered heavy losses in terms of men and material at the hands of Indian government through its more than seven lac (700,000) forces and the cycle of repression, death and destruction and economic down fall is increasing in Kashmir with every passing day due to Kashmir dispute. He further said that people of Kashmir are not averse to friendship and trade relations between two neighboring countries but its permanence is possible only after Kashmir solution. So to make it possible and permanent demands to recognize and ensure the freedom of Kashmir in accordance with the United Nations charter on the principle of right to self determination through tripartite dialogue. Mr. Naqash further said that people of Kashmir have been perpetually struggling and supremely sacrificing since seven decades for freedom and the four point formulas, out of box deceptions amount to clear deviation from freedom movement and revolt against it besides wastage of time and betrayal with the sacred blood of our martyrs.

DO NOT BE FRIENDS WITH INDIA, HIZBUL CHIEF WARNS NAWAZ SHARIF WRITES MUZAMIL JALEEL: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


DO NOT BE FRIENDS WITH INDIA, HIZBUL CHIEF WARNS NAWAZ SHARIF WRITES MUZAMIL JALEEL: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ISLAMABAD, THU MAY 16 2013

The head of all Pakistan-based Kashmiri militant groups has said that no government would be able to survive in Islamabad if it abandons the "Kashmir cause", and warned the new regime not to make the "mistake" of pursuing friendship with New Delhi at the cost of Kashmir.


Pakistan's likely new prime minister Nawaz Sharif has repeatedly expressed the desire to pick up the thread from Atal Behari Vajpayee's historic bus ride to Lahore in 1999, and said he would be happy to have Manmohan Singh at his swearing-in ceremony.

"No government in Pakistan, whether it is Nawaz Sharif or anybody else, will remain in the chair if it abandons the Kashmir cause," Syed Salahuddin, head of the United Jihad Council and leader of the Hizbul Mujahideen, told The Indian Express in an interview in Islamabad on Tuesday.

Salahuddin advised the incoming government "not to repeat the mistake of putting Kashmir on the back burner and try to foster friendship with New Delhi through trade, cultural exchanges and tourism". Because the PML (N) has won a strong mandate, "we will expect them to follow Pakistan's traditional policy on Kashmir, which is to resolve the issue in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the people of Kashmir through UN resolutions," he said.

"Nawaz Sharif and his party's leadership must understand that till the time Kashmir is under India's occupation, the national security of Pakistan, the safety and security of its borders, and its economic stability is at stake," Salahuddin said.

Pakistan's agriculture and energy needs depend on the waters that flow down from Kashmir, Salahuddin said. "So our expectation from Nawaz Sharif's government is that he will make this the first priority and give it central place in the Indo-Pak relationship... Otherwise, it will be lethal to the interests of Pakistan and that of the Kashmir struggle in the same way that it proved to be during the regimes of Musharraf sahib and Zardari sahib."

HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


The Kashmir Diaspora Alliance would like to extend their due regard and condolences to the family of Arif Shahid Chairman of the All Parties National Alliance. He has recently lost his life as he was shot to death in Rawalpindi, Pakistan of which he was also a resident of. The motivation behind the murder is being attributed to a disgruntled family member. Regardless of how he died, The Kashmir Diaspora Alliance would like to stress and assert that we should all concentrate on the immaculate manner in which this individual lived. He tireless fought and sacrificed his time and safety for the cause of Maqbooza Kashmir in order to give a voice to those who are unable to speak out themselves due to systematic and institutional suppression vis a vis the Indian government. May Allah (SWT) give him a high place in the hereafter and forgive all of his sins. May Allah Almighty also give his family and friend’s patience and forbearance in these extremely testing times.
