[DAWN] Azad Jammu and Kashmir|
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it
Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
(AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider on Tuesday urged the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF)-led marchers to call off their march as the purpose of their programme had been "largely met".
The JKLF-led march had come to a halt some eight kilometres before the Line of Control (LoC) in Chakothi sector on Sunday due to the blockade of Muzaffarabad-Srinagar road at the hands of the administration.
Ever since then, the marchers had been staging a sit-in under large tents, erected on the main road before the blockade on Sunday night.
On Monday, JKLF leaders had renewed their appeal to the AJK government to remove the obstacles and allow the marchers to cross the ceasefire line (LoC) or else they would continue their sit-in at this place for "an indefinite period."
As an alternative, the JKLF had demanded of the AJK government to bring any special representative of the UN Secretary General as well as representatives of the P5 members of Security Council to whom they could present their charter of demands.
In his cautious response, Prime Minister Haider said: "Those who have gone there (towards the LoC) are our brothers. They have succeeded in letting the world know what they wanted it to know. I hope they will return after they have shown their resolve and commitment to the whole world."
"Such things (march towards the LoC) would continue to happen repeatedly. Eventually, this ill-omened line has to vanish, either in a peaceful way or otherwise. People should make preparations for it from now on," he said.
"God willing this is bound to happen, sooner or later," he added.
Haider stressed that there should not be any conceptual chaos in the ranks of Kashmiris.
"We all should raise one slogan and make one demand, that is, plebiscite," he said.
