Jammu & Kashmir accession and insurgency
Current News Service (CNS)
The fault of some ill and regrettable moments has bowed the fate of millions of souls of state of jammu& Kashmir. This chronicle dates back to the time, when India grafted her atlas of independence in 1947, after releasing herself from the clutches of Britishers. But ill-fated Indians, even after getting their right to sovereignty, fell a prey to crooked and ill policies of British minds. Britishers at the time of losing this golden bird to the hands of Indians split the Indian hearts on communal grounds. They very politically sowed the seed of abhorrence and chauvinism among the Hindus and Muslims, and we the inhabitants of both the countries are harvesting the crop of that hatred and prejudice even after 60 years of independence, in the form of Kashmir conflict in particular, intimidation across the country in general.
During the gory episode of 1947 when Indian subcontinent alienated on religion bases, a sort of emergency arose among Indians. In spite of cherishing the sovereignty which they have got after combating together for nearly 100 years against british rule, they were searching separate place for Hindu(India) and separate place for Muslim(Pakastan). As per the records about 12 million Hindu and Muslim fled across the borders and nearly half million lost their precious lives during this so called settlement. Then there was the question of 600 princely states before the government. According to Indian independence Act 1947 paramountcy of Britishers over 600
Princely state lapsed with the liberty of India. At then those states were liberal to join any side weather India or Pakistan. Mean while Indian National Congress demanded for two nation theory (India for Hindus and Pakistan for Muslims). Princely states fell out from the ambit of two nation theory. They were gratis to remain sovereign if they contented so, this proposal was given by Mohamed Ali Jinah(founder of Pakistan and Muslim league party). Britisher enacted Article 7(b) in order to accommodate this
View of Jinah. Mean while Sardar Petal (first home minister of free India) very artistically and politically integrated 561 princely states with India with out any blood shed. On the other hand Mohamed Ali Jinah also tried to grab some princely states. He even accepted the accession of Junagarh(state with Hindu population in majority) in utter violation to two nation theory.
Pakistan was also desirous to include J&k in her territory. As j&k was a Muslim populated ruled by Hindu king, Maharaja Hari sing. Maharaja was not in favour of going with any of two choices, so he determined to remain sovereign. But with in a week of getting independence Pakistan army along with 500 tribes men invaded J&k on22 October 1947. On 26 October intruders massacred about 11000 to 14000 residents of Baramula district of j&k and they also destroyed Mohra power station, thus cut the supply of electricity to Kashmir. Maharaja was not in a position to defend the state, so he asked India for help. Pandith Jawahar lal Nehru, being first prime minister of free India agreed to military help on the condition of accession of J&K state to India. India conducted massive airlift and recaptured whole part of Baramula. Mean while Nehru took the matter to UN security council. On 1 January 1948 UN commissions were established both in India and Pakistan to look into the matter. Chair man UNCIP Dr.Josep Korbel ordered Pakistan to withdraw its troop on 13 January 1948. Nehru promised the people of J&k that once Pakistan with draw its troop, plebiscites will be held, to ascertain the wishes of people. Later on cease fire line become the LOC on January 1949, but no plebiscites took place.
Apparently this might had settled the matter in the eye of UN council but that breech of promise gave birth to unending sting in the hearts of people across LOC. The gashes of 1947 turmoil are still bleeding. Painful and brutal incidents of slaughter , rape, loot and killing have turned into nightmares. Thousands of juvenile girls who were abducted by both the communities , those naive girl are still living in unending pursuit of their family members. Brutality of 1947 commotion settled in the form of a spark in the hearts of heart of natives of J&K and came out in the form of a big ball of fire during 1987 general assembly elections in the state of J&K. Those elections acted as catalysts in the onset of insurgency in the valley and set whole valley on ablaze. According to official figures released in J&K assembly there were about 3400 disappeared and 47000 people lost their prized lives till July2009.
Human right violations further multiplied the insurgency in state. Heart shaking incident of Kunan Poshpora 1991, in which nearly 100 women of this village were raped by army personals of 4th Rajputana riffle. Age of those unfortunate girls was between 17 to 70 years. Bomai killing 2009,GawaKadal massacre, Kulgam massacre, Zakoora and Teng pora massacre 1990 are some more instances of human right violations in valley. Moving a head in Bejbehara 37 civilians were killed by army personals of 13 battalion on 22 oct. 1993, and we also have the instance of Shopian confrontation in which two adolescent girl were raped and murdered. There are also so many other incidents which gave air to enduring conflagration in the valley. Implementation of (AFSPA) also opened fields for army personals to slay, burgle, abuse and rape the inhabitants of J&K. Many innocents have lost their lives under mere suspicion irony over this was that AFSPA provided unconditional shield to the officers involved.
No doubt our armed personals have also vanished their precious lives during this incessant proxy war between two countries. Let us end this war by bringing precision in policies. Let the plebiscite to be held, let the people of J&K to choose their fate. Let us terminate the point of contention of plebiscite. This is the only resolution. When people of J&K will choose their prospect then they would be accountable for consequences after ward. This would also elucidate the position of India before UN.
