Agreement Of Kashmir

On August 12, 1947, J-K entered into a status quo agreement with India and Pakistan and stated: “Jammu and the Government of Kashmir would welcome a status quo agreement with the Indian Union/Pakistan on all matters on which there are agreements with the outgoing government of British India.” According to Christopher Snedden, the agreement was very favourable to Pakistan and deprived Azad Kashmiris of considerable powers and responsibilities. [3] Part I of the agreement relates to the structure and operation of the “civil administration of the Azad-cashmere territory”, which set the rules applicable to the government of Azad Kashmir. The second part dealt with financial arrangements that would allow Pakistan to present money. Part III is entitled “Division of Functions between the Governments of Pakistan, the Government of Azad Kashmir and the Muslim Conference.” [4] The agreement was apparently kept as a secret document until the 1990s. It has not been reported in the press articles of 1949, the memoirs of Sardar Ibrahim or other sources. It was first revealed in the gilgit and Baltistan judgment (northern zone) by the Azad Kashmir High Court in the 1990s, which says the agreement “appears to have been executed on April 28, 1949.” Later, it was published in 2008 by Judge Syed Manzoor Hussain Gilani as Annex XVII of the Constitution of Azad Jammu – Kashmir. [1] The Karachi Agreement is an agreement allegedly reached on 28 April 1949 between the Pakistani government and the government of Azad Kashmir for relations between Pakistan and Azad Kashmir. It defined the division of powers between the two governments and the All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference. By the agreement, azad-cashmere gave the Pakistani government full control of Gilgit-Baltistan (then called “northern zones”) and control over defence, foreign policy and communication issues on its own territory. Christopher Snedden says the Azad Kashmir government and the Muslim Conference have accepted the deal because they wanted Azad Kashmir to join Pakistan, which they were expecting soon with the promised referendum. According to him, this relationship was similar to that of Pakistan with its other provinces.

[6] The accession instrument signed by the Maharaja, with its own single clauses, was considered a quasi-temporary agreement between J-K and India, but like other princely states, namely Hyderabad and Travancore, they had their own clauses that were inserted into their accession instruments, which were diluted in a timely manner and that these princely states fully complied with India`s constitution, as did the J-K membership clauses. In this sense, the current revocation of Article 370 is exactly under the constitution of India and it is high time that Kashmiris accepted that they are legitimate citizens of India and that they deny the external influences that indoctrinate them and strive to lead peaceful and prosperous lives. The entire Indian nation will support them in this regard. Independence Act of 1947 is not independent of the GOI Act of 1935. The unrest in Kashmir-led Kashmir was directed against the Hindu Maharaja nit against the establishment itself. The current Imbroglio is based on the same,, to honor the separation of Muslim hegemony and majoratarionism. The Aetucle produces selective references to events to advance a pro Kashmiri Muslim narrative, thus undermining the sovereignty and integrity of secular democratic India.
