Musharraf’s candidature from Chitral infringes UN Resolution on POK, Chitral being part of India

Prof. Bhim Singh

Prof. Bhim Singh, Founder of National Panthers Party & Member of National Integration Council besides being a noted jurist in International Law accused Pakistan for attempting to legitimize Pak’s illegal occupation of 1/3rd of the territories of J&K, it occupied in 1947 and after the ceasefire ordered by the United Nations in 1948.
“The former President of Pakistan, Mr. Pervez Musharraf was deliberately brought from exile under the Army pressure to be used to legitimize the Pak-occupation over the territories of Gilgit-Baltistan which formed part of J&K. Chitral and Hunza were constituents of State of J&K under the Dogra Rule. General Baaz Singh was instrumented to annex Gilgit-Baltistan with J&K. Prof. Bhim Singh in his statement dug out the hidden history saying Chitral was a territory of J&K and it became part of the Indian Union in 1947 after the Instrument of Accession was signed by Maharaja Hari Singh on 26th October, 1947. He further stated that, “It was 1857 when the ruler of Chitral Mr. Amman-ul-Mulk, the Jagirdar of Chitral surrendered to the Dogra Army and submitted in a Treaty with the Govt. of the Dogra Maharaja in 1877. Since then Chitral remained an integral part of the State of J&K.” Prof. Bhim Singh said.
The Panthers Party Supremo had protested strongly in London in a protest meeting held at Trafalgar Square, London in 1969 when Pakistan annexed Chitral and declared it a District of Pakistan under the rule of General Jahya Khan in 1969. Prof. Bhim Singh also accused the Central leadership and the Parliament of India for keeping quiet on this act of invasion of Chitral. How a Pakistani national can represent a part of J&K (Chitral) in the National Assembly of Pakistan is a matter to be given a serious thought.
Prof. Bhim Singh urged Dr. Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India to take up the issue with the International Court of Justice against this move of Pakistan in violation of the UN Resolution of 13th August, 1948 in which UN had directed Pakistan to vacate all occupied territories of J&K. Pakistan has been exposed of its treachery against the people of J&K in the name of ‘Azadi’, Prof. Bhim Singh observed. On the one hand Pakistan claims that J&K is disputed and on the other hand it declared Chitral (J&K) and Hunza as territories of Pakistan. “This has exposed the dangerous designs of ISI and CIA to implement Dixon Plan in J&K by carving out an Islamic Republic of Kashmir as was exposed by Weakliks the other day.”
Setting up a former Army Chief as a candidate from Chitral (J&K) should not be underestimated by the North and the South Blocks in New Delhi. This is a conspiracy to grab entire POK by the dictators of Pakistan which may prove dangerous for the security of India and threaten global peace.
