Pakistan is a true friend of Kashmiris – Read below:
Dr Shabir Choudhry 19 April 2018
A citizen of Jammu and Kashmir contacted me, and asked me to help him/her with his/her PhD research on Kashmir.
I asked this student to get the proposal approved and then contact me.
The student replied by giving details of the research and said:
‘You are great asset for Kashmiries and it is my pleasure to seek your guidance’.
I said to the student that in my experience and dealing with Azad Kashmiri students and Pakistani institutions, I don’t think they will allow you to research on this topic, as this will help and promote Kashmiri consciousness and nationalism.
Today I had the following reply:
‘Aslam o Alaikum.
‘Sir 'they' didn't allow me to carry on my work on that topic which I had mentioned previously’.
I have not given even gender of the student or any other information which can identify him/her.
This shows how friendly is Pakistan to people of JK. Message is clear,
a country which occupies us, bans books on Jammu and Kashmir, and bans newspapers WILL NOT allow people of Azad Kashmir to know about their case, our resources and nationalist trends.
