Sheikh’s draft Agreement 1952 was out-rightly rejected by Nehru

Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party and Member of National Integration Council expressed surprise on the knowledge and events of the development of history vis-à-vis J&K since 1947 and counseled them to shun anti-Dogra, anti-Maharaja Hari Singh phobia in the interest of their own integrity and writings.
The Panthers Supremo reminded the great intellectuals, historians, politicians and the media men for reciting the so-called Agreement, 1952 which was never conceived between Jawaharlal Nehru & Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah. Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah had made a speech on the floors of the Legislative Assembly in 1952 threatening Nehru to accede his (Sheikh’s) demand to not to introduce fundamental rights in J&K and desist from extending jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of India to J&K among other demands. All such demands meant for keeping J&K a Sheikhdom and outside the scope of any fundamental rights and freedoms. Sheikh had argued on the floor of the House that J&K has been liberated from the Maharaja’s rule and to introduce Reforms to kill feudalism in the state, the National Conference government had taken the land of the landlords without compensation. He further argued that the people of J&K do not deserve right to freedoms of speech, expression and others for a decade. This speech of Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah has been coined as Delhi Agreement by National Conference although Jawahar Lal Nehru in his speech in Parliament expressed his government’s inability to accept the proposed agreement. Nehru refused to entertain this agreement. There was no question of signing the so-called Delhi Agreement.
Nehru, in order to win over Sheikh Abdullah sent him as a part of the UN Delegation to attend UN Session in New York in 1953. Sheikh Abdullah was encouraged by the CIA and the planners of the South-Asian Bloc in the White House to go for the implementation of Dixon Plan. Dixon Plan had assured creation of Islamic Republic of Greater Kashmir. The new map in the Dixon Plan included the areas of Rajouri-Poonch and Doda Districts (Muslim majority districts in Jammu Pradesh). Sheikh Abdullah was assured full backing of the White House.
Sheikh Abdullah riding the CIA tiger fired India at a public meeting in R.S. Pura, a terrible miscalculation to choose a border area in Jammu Pradesh declaring that he would have Independent Kashmir if his proposed Agreement of 1952 was not implemented. This made Nehru to change his mind vis-à-vis Sheikh Abdullah and sent urgent communication to the then Sadar-e-Riyasat, Yuvraj Karan Singh to dismiss Sheikh Abdullah in the greater national interest on 9th August, 1953.
People of J&K have been living the age of oppression and suppression under the National Conference rule abetted and defended by the Congress leadership. This is the cause that has led even highly educated youth to rebel against the tyrant rulers in J&K. The Congress leadership failed to appreciate Nehru’s wisdom in removing Sheikh Abdullah who happened to be a close and intimate friend of Nehru. For Nehru J&K was more important than his friendship.
Thousands of boys continue under draconian Public Safety Act in jails without trial. The senior leaders like Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Moulvi Farooq have been locked up illegally, unconstitutionally, unethically and in defiance of their fundamental rights in their own homes which have been converted into prisons. Nearly 120 students and youth were shot dead by the forces of National Conference in the streets in 2010.
Prof. Bhim Singh reminded the parties’ holding reign of power in Delhi that the Kashmiris are not against India. They have been trying to express their helplessness by adopting undesirable and unacceptable methods and means. That day democracy that Maharaja Hari Singh initiated in 1939 by holding free and fair elections to the Praja Sabha. There shall be end of all rebellions and violence if free and fair elections are held in J&K and the parties which form majority are allowed to govern. Rest of the formulation, resolution, solutions proposed or prompted by the so-called groups, committees, individuals and so-called middlemen shall sink into the depth of Jhelum for all the times.
