Issue of Jammu Kashmir is not new. It started right from October 22, 1947, by Pakistani tribal invasion and still going on. Rights movements in Hari Singh’s monarchy is a different debate. From October 1947 to 1988 the situation was quite different with different local & world prospective. Right from 1947, occupation, division & subdivision of Jammu Kashmir, both India & Pakistan are chanting to give “right of decision to JK peoples” for their future but practically both countries are acting to prolong their occupation, miseries of JK peoples & looting resources.
By mid-80s while Indian & Pakistani interests were changing and Pakistan officially launched his gun under “Jehad” banner for his proxy war against India. India responded the same in a proxy business manner, hence JK peoples started becoming the victims of this all mess. Both countries started using JK peoples just as “fodder” for their gains and fuelled their proxy war business on common peoples blood.
Today, Jammu Kashmir is a proxy war hub of India & Pakistan. Both are killing JK peoples and on our blood, they used to dialogue about their own regional interests. We are the witness that on our blood, both debated and bargained their mutual issues in Afghanistan & Iran and settled their issues.
After so many sacrifices We JK peoples are still not even part of our own issue locally or internationally. We don’t have our political system or else. We just have Pakistani gun in our hand to keep up this proxy war. Jammu Kashmir is nothing more than a profitable business company for both India, Pakistan and their agents.
We can clearly see this proxy war business in which we are being used as fodder from last more than three decades with countless sacrifices and miseries. Islam or Islamic system does not even exist in Pakistan but we are being taught and forced to believe about the “caliphate” in Pakistan to keep up fighting against India and keep waving Pakistani flags. We must calculate now, what we are doing and what we have got from last miserable decades holding Pakistani gun without our own politico’s system.
Is this our freedom struggle wrapped in Pakistani flags? What is the impact and response of the international community on this proxy war? No one even bothered himself to talk about our miseries and occupation. In IaJK, there are extreme human rights violations but the world is silent just because we are not fighting for our own independence but Pakistani proxy war.
In PaJK even there is not a single anti occupier armed movement exists but still, oppression is on the peak. Subdivision of POK, ban on history books, dismissal of state subject rule, even rights activists got sentences till 90 years imprisonments by Pakistan for demanding their rights. The national question is a crime and traitorous act in whole JK.
Then what we are fighting for? What is the outcome? We need to revisit our struggle and must consider ground realities. Both India & Pakistan are against our national question but keep chanting for “our right”. We must not be a part of proxy war business any more. Rather, we must stand up for our own national independence.
