Furthermore, these ‘leaders’ signed away their own powers and agreed that they will have practically nothing to do with negotiations on
Kashmirwhether in the UN or with ; or defence of this territory. The Agreement says that the Free Kashmir will have no role in, ‘Defence; Foreign policy of Azad Kashmir; Negotiations with the United Nations Commission for India and Pakistan; Publicity in foreign countries and in Pakistan; Co - ordination and arrangement of relief and rehabilitation of refugees; Co - ordination of publicity in connection with plebiscite; All activities within Pakistan regarding Kashmir such as procurement of food and civil supplies running of refugee camps and medical aid.’ India
This kind of ‘leadership’ one can only find in this unfortunate land known as Azad Kashmir. These ‘leaders’ deliberately work against national interests of their own country; and have bartered away independence and rights of future generations for the sake of political power. These ‘leaders’ have been more loyal to our one neighbour; and in view of many Kashmiri patriots, they have committed treachery against their own people and their own nation; and sad thing is that they are still imposed upon us as ‘Kashmiri leaders’, and despite all their actions and ‘treachery’ people still follow them.
One could say that the situation on the other side of the divide is not that bright either, because the leadership over there, whether it is pro
, pro independence or pro India is also power hungry, ego centric and work against the national interests of State of Pakistan . Jammu and Kashmir
The report further said: ‘Divisions within the moderate Hurriyat erupted on Sunday when another executive council member Abdul Gani Bhat at a rally in north Kashmir said the UN plebiscite resolutions were no longer "practically implementable" in the State.’
