HABIB YOUSAFZAI ADDRESSED AN EVENT ARRANGED BY THE MUSLIM LEAGUE (N) CANADA ON THE BIRTHDAY OF QUAID-E-AZAM, MUHAMMAD ALI JINNAH THE SAVIOR OF THE MUSLIMS OF THE SUB-CONTINENT, A NOTABLE POLITICIAN, FOUNDER OF PAKISTAN, AND FIRST GOVERNOR GENERAL:
Muhammad Ali Jinnah was born on 25 December 1876 in Karachi, which was still a part of British-controlled India at that time. This day is known as 'Birthday of Quaid-e-Azam', Quaid-e-Azam meaning Great Leader.
Despite Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s successes, for decades now it has been the policy of Indian government to occupy or sever all those areas which have gone to or which were supposed to go with Pakistan. At the time of partition, it was agreed under partition plan that Muslim majority areas will constitute Pakistan and Hindu majority areas will go with India. In regards to the 560 princely states that existed, the rulers of these states were to decide the fate keeping in view of the aspirations of the inhabitants and geographical contiguity. The rulers of Manwa, Junagarah, and Hyderabad gave their verdict to join with Pakistan, but India did not accept it with the objection that since all these states have a Hindu majority, and geographical contiguity, as such they are part of India. Despite the decision, Indian forces occupied them.
On the contrary, the Muslim majority state gave a clear-cut verdict on July 19, 1947 under the Muslim Conference that the Jammu Kashmir state will join Pakistan. Its Hindu ruler on the other hand gave his verdict to support India. Hari Singh Dogra (the Hindu ruler of Kashmir) had no authority to pass decision to join with India for two reasons, (i) the Kashmir region was surrounded and linked by the areas where Pakistan founded, and (ii) the state had Muslim majority and they had already passed a resolution in favour of Pakistan. In order to keep its hegemony over South Asia, India when on a pursuit to occupy not only parts of the state of Jammu and Kashmir but also other minority areas such as Punjab, Khalistan. It did not stop its ambitions here, India further went ahead and militarily intervened in East Pakistan in 1971, and dismembered it from West Pakistan.
Pakistan could have liberated Maqbooza Kashmir in 1947, but Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru took this matter to UN which passed resolution that the inhabitants of Jammu Kashmir will decide their fate in a plebiscite to join one of the two countries. Instead of leaving and handing over the state to Pakistan, they have been illegally occupying 42,000 square miles of the state of Jammu Kashmir (also known as Maqbooza Kashmir) and 9 million inhabitants for decades. India was able to collaborate with Sheikh Abdullah (AKA Mir Abdullah of Kashmir a term synonymous to Mir Jaffar and Mir Saddiq the famous traitors of Indian sub-continent) to get a resolution passed from the Maqbooza Kashmir Assembly that Maqbooza Kashmir is one of its state and integral part of India.
India has also been successful in creating a division amongst the Muslim’s of Jammu Kashmir as a result it succeeded in its mission to occupy the Muslim’s territory. By continuous propaganda India has been successful in creating and maintaining division among the inhabitants of this region. As such we are in a situation where there are more than 1000 factions who are claiming to be representatives of Maqbooza Kashmir. It is very hard to accommodate each and every faction in the dialogue process. Without any question, had there been a plebiscite, each and every individual would have been able to participate and decide to pick either India or Pakistan. They would be able to decide their fate through just, peace, and equitable means.
Only through persistent determination of the nation of Pakistan and the sacrifices of more than 200,000 inhabitants (over and above the Jammu genocide of 1947) of Maqbooza Kashmir has compelled India to come on the negotiating table with Pakistan to settle all issues including Maqbooza Kashmir. Out of 9 million of its inhabitants, about 30 % are non- Muslims and have clearly shown their inclinations towards India. We strongly condemn the Indian government from adding on to the ongoing thousands of casualties over and decades, and initially in 1947 wherein more than 237,000 Muslims in Jammu region were butchered and vast majority were forced to leave for Pakistan. Please read an article on Jammu genocide by Prince Aabid.https://www.facebook.com/RTnews/posts/10153838561034411. Again in order to fulfill its nefarious design, India is using VDC’s to kill Muslims in Jammu to make it a Hindu majority region by ejecting the remaining Muslims. Kindly refer to “THE MUSLIM IDENTITY IS CONSIDERED A BIG CRIME AND THEY ARE UNSAFE IN MAQBOOZA JAMMU DIVISION”
It is time we the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir must trust our brothers the nation of Pakistan who has equally suffered alongside us and paid a heavy price to free us from Indian occupation. While Hindus are asserting openly their allegiance to India, the Muslims of Maqbooza Kashmir should not shy away in their claim that they are in fact rightfully a part of Pakistan as well. The nation of Pakistan must stay vigilant while talking with India as their previous ambassadors are full of traitors.
