Sydney, 21 September, 2017
I received a text message about this event today. http://www.sadaewatansydney.com/kashmirph.htm
Those who create, encourage and fund violence and terrorism in “Heaven of Earth”, Kashmir, are at it again. The whole world knows where the Jihadists come from, and where they receive their training from. Those who champion their so-called concerns for Kashmiris, they should not forget supporting the struggling and forcibly suppressed people of Baluchistan.
No prize for guessing that this so-called Kashmir Council of Australia is populated and owned by those who have close connection with Pakistan and its agencies.
No wonder that it’s upcoming function in NSW Parliament on 29 September 2017 is addressed by High Commissioner of Pakistan in Australia. http://www.sadaewatansydney.com/kashmirph.htm
Here is the background why Jammu & Kashmir (J &K) is an inalienable and integral part of India, and it will always remain so.
Let me remind those who do not know the relevant history. J&K became an inalienable part of India on 25th October, 1947 when ruler of J&K, Maharaja Hari Singh, signed the “Instrument of accession” with India. This Instrument was executed between India’s then Governor-General, Lord Louis Mountbatten, and Maharaja Hari Singh on 25th October, 1947. At the time of Independence in 2947, rulers of Princely States and Kingdoms in India were entitled to choose one of the three options- join India, join Pakistan or remain independent. J&K joined India.
Here is the Link for more details.
American Professor Christine Fair’s exposure of the anti-India propaganda on this matter is worth watching.
Maharaja Hari Singh’s Kingdom of Jammu & Kashmir obviously and legally joined India. The Maharaja made the correct choice. He was a smart King. J&K is part of the progressive, prosperous, secular, multicultural and democratic India.
India and Indians will never allow anyone to undo what was done by Maharaja Hari Singh in 1947. Terrorism and unrest supported from across the border will never succeed.
In my view, and in the views of Indian Australians, there is no need or justification for any elected Australian representatives i.e. Ministets, MPs, MLCs and Councilors to participate in such a unproductive and objectionable activity.
And one more thing.
It’s not South East Asia. It’s called South Asia. Get your geography right, guys!
There will be peace in Kashmir and the region if/ when terrorists groups, based in Pakistan, stop receiving support, training, funding and patronage of the State and non-State agencies of Pakistan. The concerns in this regard have come not only from the USA and the UNO, but also the BRICS.
