GRANTING PROVINCIAL STATUS TO AZAD KASHMIR WILL FURTHER FORTIFY PAKISTAN’S CLAIM OVER MAQBOOZA JAMMU KASHMIR (INDIAN OCCUPIED JAMMU KASHMIR): HABIB YOUSAFZAI,
THE CHAIRMAN JAMMU KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE
Indian leadership encompassing Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru, Chandulal Trivedi, and Sardar Vallabbhai Patel decided to merge Manawader, Junagarh, and Hyderabad (Deccan) with India on the basis that the states had a Hindu majority population. In the case of Jammu Kashmir, the trio declared that its fate will be decided by the Kashmiris. As soon as Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru the plaintiff of the UN resolution reached India, he began parroting that the entire state of Jammu Kashmir is its integral part. Similarly, India merged the Sikh Homeland Punjab (Khalistan) with India by falsely labeling them Hindus. By giving provincial status to Azad Kashmir, Pakistan is not giving up its claim over Maqbooza Jammu Kashmir. The further Pakistan delays in taking action the more difficult the task will become to get Maqbooza Jammu Kashmir back from India.
