Subject: A peaceful, practicable, equitable, honorable and everlasting solution of about


Seventy years old unresolved Kashmir issue. The issue is as dangerous today as ever,
having already caused three bloody wars in the past between India and Pakistan, now both
nuclear powers, hence the continued tensions between them makes it more dangerous for
even regional and world peace.
Solution in a nutshell under the caption The Gist of The Appeal page 10.
Dear Sirs
Aadaab-Arz / Assalam-u-Alaikum
This communication including my joint appeal to the people of India, Pakistan and Jammu Kashmir State
along with the covering letter was sent to both of you, although addressed separately, on 27 th March 2015,
to addressee no. 1 through Indian High Commission in Islamabad and to addressee no. 2 through his office
in Islamabad, both via a courier service. It was also confirmed that the letters were received by the Indian
High Commission and office of the Prime Minister of Pakistan the very next day. But despite the period of
over five months, I am yet to receive even the acknowledgement of the receipt of my communication. As
such, I am resending the documents containing almost the same matter to both of you individually, and
through you to people of India and Pakistan, requesting them to consider my humble appeal.
I may also add here that I am forwarding the copies of my submissions and covering letter to local,
regional and world media, world dignitaries and world bodies including United Nations and other
relevant international organizations.
Covering Letter
I- Following are the undeniable realities regarding different aspects of Kashmir issue, proved through
arguments, documentation and verifiable facts mentioned in different parts of the enclosed appeal:1. For a longer part of its recorded history, Kashmir has been an independent country with its borders
occasionally expanding and shrinking. After 1947 both India and Pakistan accepted, at one stage or
the other, the independence of Kashmir either as Kashmiri peoples right or as one of the three
alternative solutions of the issue i.e., complete independence, accession to Pakistan and accession
to India.
2. The right of self-determination, of now about 17.5 million people of Jammu Kashmir State, is their
birthright per UN Charter, per various UN resolutions on the subject accepted by both India and
1

Pakistan and the mutual correspondence between their two governments also confirms the
acceptance of our birthright.
Only the people of Jammu Kashmir State are entitled to decide about their ultimate national destiny.
No law of limitations applies to the right of self-determination of any subjugated people.
The best solution of Kashmir issue should be peaceful, equitable, honorable (for all its contenders),
practicable and sustainable.
The whole state of Jammu Kashmir or any of its parts is neither an integral part (Atoot-Ang) of India
nor the jugular vein (Shah-Rug) of Pakistan as the future of the State is yet to be determined under
UN resolutions accepted by both India and Pakistan.
(For details please see concerned contents of my First, Second and Third Submission in the
attached appeal).
Kashmir issue can be solved peacefully and equitably within a period of one month if India, Pakistan
and the UN honor their pledges and commitments previously given to the people of Jammu Kashmir
State, and if all Kashmiri leaders and political parties act as real Kashmiri patriots instead working
for the national interests of either India or Pakistan.
A peaceful and equitable solution of Kashmir issue will prove in the best interests of both India and
Pakistan politically, commercially and diplomatically. It will also relieve international community,
especially United Nations, of their moral responsibility of solving Kashmir issue and above all, it will
rid the people of Jammu Kashmir State of the miseries faced by them during last over six decades.
But if the issue remains unresolved, the entire sub-continent will be exposed to a disastrous
situation.

II- MY COMMON AND HUMBLE APPEAL TO THE PEOPLES, GOVERNMENTS, POLITICAL PARTIES,
HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS, INTELLECTUALS AND TO THE MEDIA OF INDIA, PAKISTAN,
JAMMU KASHMIR STATE AND TO INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY INCLUDING WORLD
DIGNITARIES, UNITED NATIONS AND OTHER RELEVENT INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS
ALONG WITH MEDIA.
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen!
Peace be upon us all,
I, Amanullah Khan, address this appeal to you in my personal capacity and as one of the founders in 1977
and now the Patron-in-Chief of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), and wish to bring to your notice
my humble submissions in the best national interests of Pakistan, India, Jammu Kashmir and the
international community. At the very outset, please accept my apologies for being a burden on your
precious time while going through this lengthy but a document worth reading and favorably considering in
the best interests of us all.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The 20th century AD witnessed the consecutive rise of at least three dozen revolutionaries, statesmen and
reformers, and their colleagues from Vietnam in the East to the Americas in the West. The struggle carried
by them had germinated a revolution across the globe towards the second half of the century and thus
precipitated the collapse of dominance of men over men, the curses of slavery and colonialism. The
outcome was spectacular as, as many as 16 nations attained their political independence within the shortspan of the year 1960. This task was unfolded by revolutionaries, statesmen or reformers namely, Ho Chi
Minh (Vietnam), Ahmed Sukarno (Indonesia), Mahatir Mohamad (Malaysia), Lee Kuan Yew (Singapore),
D.S. Senanayeke (Srilanka), Sheikh Mujib-ur-Rehman (Bangladesh), Mao Tse-Tung & Chou Enlai (China),
Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, (Minus their unjust policy in Kashmir), Subhas Chandra Bose
& Bhagat Singh (India), Maqbool Ahmed Butt (Kashmir), Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Allama Iqbal and Zulfiqar
Ali Bhutto (Pakistan), Imam Khomeini & Dr. Muhammad Musaddiq (Iran), Yasir Arafat & George Habash
(Palestine), Gamal Abdel Nasser & Hassan-ul-Banna (Egypt), Faisal bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud (Saudi Arabia),
Ahmed Ben Bella (Algeria), Robert Mugabe (Zimbabwe), Nelson Mandela (South Africa), Marshal Josip
2

Broz Tito (Yugoslavia), Mehdi Sudani (Sudan), Mustafa Kamal Pasha (Turkey), Earl Bertrand Russell
(Britain), Patrick Pearse (Ireland), Charles De Gual (France), Fidel A. Castro (Cuba), Hugo Chavez
(Venezuela), Chee Guevara (Bolivia) and Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Junior (USA).
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Whereas the 20th century had the distinction of bringing an end to the dominance of men over men, it also
carried a dark chapter that amongst the newly independent states some had snatched away the right to
freedom of some of their smaller neighbors. In doing so, independent India and to an extent Pakistan too,
had taken steps to deprive the neighboring State of Jammu Kashmir of its right to be free. Conversely, they
have been using various pretexts to unduly claim ownership of the State. The issue has continued to
remain unresolved for about seven decades. In this context, I wish to submit that the Kashmir issue merits
your close and serious consideration as any move to the contrary, will be very expensive for all the
stakeholders.
My submissions are as follow:
My First Submission:
It is an undeniable fact that the State of Jammu Kashmir or any of its parts is neither an integral part of
India nor a jugular vein of Pakistan. The sole ownership of the State and right to determine its future rests
with the permanent residents of the State. The reasons are not too far to seek.
A- Indias commitments in the past and claims of today:
Today, the official Indian position describes the entire State of Jammu Kashmir as an integral part of the
Indian Union. However, facts on the ground are as follow:
i. World renowned thinker and torch-bearer of human rights Earl Bertrand Russell wrote in his world famous
book New Hopes for a Changing World (pages 145-146):
When one observes that the high idealism of Indian government in international matters
breaks down completely when confronted with the question of Kashmir, it is difficult to avoid
a feeling of despair.
At this point, it is important to recall that Earl Bertrand Russell was otherwise known for his soft-corner for
various Indian policies. Interestingly, the international opinion today continues to share the same view
regarding Indian policy on Kashmir.
ii. In numerous telegrams and letters, the-then Prime Minister of India had conveyed to the Governor
General and Prime Minister of Pakistan that Kashmirs accession to India will be contingent upon Kashmiri
peoples final decision regarding the fate of their State.
iii. The very first Indian Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru while speaking at All India Radio on 2 nd
November, 1947 made the following announcement:
We have declared that the fate of Kashmir is ultimately to be decided by the people. The
pledge we have given (and the Maharaja has supported it) not only to the people of Kashmir
but to the world. We will not and cannot back out of it.
iv. Indian representative at the United Nations Mr. Gopala Swami Ayyangar while presenting Kashmir issue
at the United Nation Security Council (UNSC), made the following statement on 15th January, 1948:
Whether she should withdraw from her accession to India and either accede to Pakistan or
remain independent, with a right to claim admission as a member of the United Nations - all
this we have recognized to be a matter of unfettered decision by the people of Kashmir, after
normal life is restored to them.
v. The Indian Prime Minister while addressing All India Congress Committee, made the following statement
on 9th July, 1951:
Kashmir has been wrongly looked upon as a prize for India and Pakistan. People seem
to forget that Kashmir is not a commodity for sale or to be bartered. It has an individual
existence and its people must be the final arbiters of their future.
3

With the above three commitments on record what moral, legal, political, constitutional
and historic justification does India have to claim of the Jammu Kashmir State or any
part of it to be her integral part(s).
vi. UNSC while adopting Resolution no. 47 (21st April, 1948), Resolution no. 51 (3rd June, 1948),
Resolution no. 80 (14th March, 1950), Resolution no. 91 (30th March, 1951) and Resolution no. 122 (24th
January, 1957) maintained that the final disposition of the State of Jammu Kashmir will be determined in a
plebiscite under the UN auspicious. Both, India and Pakistan, had agreed to these resolutions, and for that
reason Indian claim that Kashmir was an integral part of Indian Union is indeed negation of these
resolutions.
vii. The United Nations Commission for India and Pakistan (UNCIP) while adopting Resolutions dated 13th
August, 1948 and 5th January, 1949 made it clear that future of the State of Jammu Kashmir will be
decided in a plebiscite to be held in the entire State under the UN auspicious. The two governments while
confronting each other had accepted the two resolutions. This again raises a question as to whether there
is any moral obligation on India and Pakistan, once they had accepted the resolutions.
viii. Until ten years after Kashmir assumed an international character, India had been promising
international community and Kashmiri people that fate of the State will rest upon the Kashmiri peoples
choice. In this period until 1957 or even later, nothing new happened that would establish the State as an
integral part of the Indian Union. With this background, the Indian claim regarding integral part does not
hold correct under any constitutional, political, social, moral and legal basis.
ix. Is there any government functionary in India or a common man who would tell us for sure as to when
Kashmir had acceded to India? Not on 14 th and 15th August, 1947 as then Jammu Kashmir State was an
independent entity, a status that was acknowledged by the British, Indian and Pakistani governments.
The very claim regarding accession of Jammu Kashmir to India stands contradicted by the very Prime
Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehrus letters to the Governor General and Prime Minister of Pakistan, moves
to establish a separate Constituent Assembly for the State (that envisaged a separate President, Prime
Minister, National Language and separate Laws for Jammu Kashmir State) and the White Paper on
Kashmir situation that reaffirm the Kashmiri peoples right to decide their future. This is further enforced in
the UNSC Resolutions no. 47, 51, 80, 91 and 122 and UNCIP Resolution of 13 th August, 1948 and 05th
January, 1949 which affirm Kashmiri peoples right to decide their future. The Indian Government had
accepted all these resolutions. In this background, one can find two contradictory stances by the same
party which can imply both. The accession had no legal, political, constitutional and factual standing and if
so, the successive Indian governments have been untruthful over the years in their claims with the
international community. Faced with this situation, a government taking a false stance so blatantly, has no
right to take a seat at the UNSC. Rather, for not complying with these pending UN Resolutions on Kashmir
issue, India should be expelled from the very UN. That scenario may not be acceptable to the Indian
government hence the Maharajas accession on 27 th October, 1947 has no constitutional, political, legal,
moral and factual standing. The so-called accession was a shear fraudulent exercise.
x. Some Indians claim that State of Jammu Kashmir became part of India when Pakistan refused to
withdraw its troops from the State. In this context, one would like to submit that;
(1) India too had committed a series of violations. For example, Indian troops had landed at
Srinagar, the capital of the Independent state of Jammu Kashmir, prior to the signing of accession
deed by the Indian Governor General. This was no less a violation than what Pakistan would have
carried. Ironically, there were no protests against this violation. Why were the Indians not asked to
explain?
(2) Above all, no religion including Hinduism and Islam or any civilization or a set of moral
values, would allow a discriminatory approach in relation to crimes or conviction of one for a
crime committed by another. In this logic, the blame is on Pakistan for not withdrawing her
forces from Jammu Kashmir but conviction is applied on the people of Kashmir by depriving
them of their birthright of self-determination. This Indian approach is a glaring violation of
the internationally established norms and ethical values which cannot be accepted.
4

In short, the Indian claim that the State of Jammu Kashmir or any of its parts is an integral
part of Indian Union on any political or moral ground is false and untenable. This claim
symbolizes the worst example of might is right, Indias expansionist designs and Indian
track record of breach of commitments that remains a dirty black spot on the face of India
and Indians that must be erased as soon as possible for their own larger national interest.
SOME Pakistanis claim of Kashmir being a jugular vein (shah rug) of Pakistan is also untenable.
Let us see how?
i. Muhammad Ali Jinnah in his capacity as President of All India Muslim League declared on 17th June,
1947:
With the termination of British paramountcy, Indian States would be free to join either the
Hindustan Constituent Assembly or the Pakistan Constituent Assembly, or to remain
independent.
This declaration by Mr. Jinnah is carried on page 16 of a compilation titled:
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah Speeches and Statements 1947-1948. Published by the
government of Pakistan, The preface of 1989 edition of the book was written by the then Prime Minister of
Pakistan Late Benazir Bhutto.
ii. The statement by Mr. Jinnah made on 17 th June, 1947 is recorded by the Reuters News Agency as
incorporated in India Office Library in London report on Transfer of Power (page 438, item 225).
iii. Mr. Jinnah after meeting Kashmiri leaders: Chaudhry Hameedullah, Acting President of All Jammu
Kashmir Muslim Conference (AJKMC) and Professor Muhammad Ishaq Qureshi issued a policy statement
on 11th July, 1947. It reads as follows:
The second question that is engaging the attention of the Muslims of Kashmir is whether
Kashmir is going to join the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan. I have already made it
clear more than once that the Indian States are free to join either the Pakistan Constituent
Assembly or the Hindustan Constituent Assembly or remain independent. I have no doubt
that the Maharaja and the Kashmir Government will give their closest attention and
consideration to this matter and realize the interests not only of the ruler but also of his
people.
The statement is more than clear about his being open to all the three options.
iv. Under instructions from Quaid-e-Azam, the-then Foreign Minister Sir Zafarullah Khan was instrumental
in achieving a broad consensus as expressed in the UNCIP resolution of 13 th Aug 1948 that stated that
people of Jammu Kashmir State will decide the future of their State in a plebiscite that will be held under
the UN auspicious. The Resolution did not refer to any integral part or to any jugular vein.
v. Regardless of positions taken during discussions, at track-II, the declared position of Pakistan remains
that Kashmiri people are entitled to self-determination in terms of UN Resolutions. This excludes theories
such as jugular vein.

Ownership of Jammu Kashmir State rests with its permanent residents (State Subjects):
i. Destiny of any State is determined by the permanent residents of that State in consonance with
democratic and human precepts, and not by any ruler or any outside power. It is therefore important to
uphold the rights of the people of Jammu Kashmir State (as it existed on 14 th August, 1947) to decide their
future. This right does not entitle those who came from outside, to settle down in the State after August 14,
1947.
ii. The promise of Kashmiri peoples right to decide is enshrined in the correspondence which the Indian
side had carried with the other parties to Kashmir issue.
iii. The assurances regarding Kashmiris right to decide is contained in Indian Prime Minister Mr. Nehrus
statements of 2nd November, 1947 and 9th July, 1951 together with Indian Permanent Representative to
the UN Mr. Gopala Swami Ayyangars statement at the UNSC on 15th Jan. 1948 (see part A, subsections iii,
iv and v, page no. 4 of the Appeal).
5

iv. Kashmiris rights were reaffirmed in the UNSC Resolutions 47, 51, 80, 91 and 122 dated 21st April, 1948,
3rd June, 1948, 14th March, 1950, 30th March, 1951 and 24th June, 1957, besides UNCIP Resolutions of
13th August, 1948 and 5th January, 1949 all of which were accepted by India, Pakistan and other nations
afterwards.
To sum up, the whole State of Jammu Kashmir, as it existed on 14 th of August 1947 and fragmented
following the incidents of October 1947, is neither an integral part (atoot-ang) of India nor a jugular
vein (shah-rug) of Pakistan. Its ownership and right to decide its future rests with the permanent
residents of the State itself who have not been allowed to exercise their right so for.
My Second Submission:
The right of self-determination of nations under subjugation is not constrained by any law of
limitations.
In terms of international law and practice, the right of self-determination of any subjugated nation is not
constrained by any law of limitations. If this was not so, neither India nor Pakistan would have attained
independence. The right of Kashmiris to self-determination is sanctioned by the UN Resolutions and
Human Rights Charter and therefore any effort on the part of Indian intellectuals to deprive them on the
pretext of law of limitations is totally unjustified and unacceptable.
My Third Submission:
A peaceful, democratic, just, honorable and viable solution of Kashmir Issue
In the preceding discussion, it is proved beyond doubt that the State of Jammu Kashmir or any of its parts
is neither an integral part of India, nor a Jugular vein of Pakistan. The ownership of the State and right to
decide its future rests with the permanent residents of the State. It is also established that right of selfdetermination of subjugated people is not subservient to the law of limitations.
In the past:
1. Kashmir issue has been the cause of more than two wars between India and Pakistan that brought about
loss of life to millions of people and disabled thousands, besides wide spread losses to property in the
region.
2. Both sides have employed undemocratic means to advance their interests.
3. The two sides have been taking unjust postures vis-a-vis the dispute.
4. Similarly, the competing powers while advancing their interests, often took dishonorable stands against
the wishes of Kashmiri people.
5. Contrary to un-implementable solutions offered from time to time by other quarters, the JKLF in general,
and I personally in particular, have been putting forward solutions that would assure peaceful, democratic
and just solution to the Kashmir issue. This would also be an honorable way out for the competing powers
themselves. In short, this relates to the concept of a free and independent State of Jammu Kashmir (as
emerged on 14th-15th August, 1947 as consequence of Indian Independence Act, recognized by
Governments of Pakistan and India and as manifest in the then Stand Still Agreement between Pakistan
and Jammu Kashmir State as two independent states). It is thus important that the State of Jammu
Kashmir that has been fragmented since Indian moves of 27 October, 1947, should be re-united and for
this, people of the State from all provinces namely; Kashmir Valley, Jammu, Azad Kashmir, Gilgit, Baltistan
and Ladakh should be allowed to establish a democratic (Parliamentary), federal and secular (noncommunal) State. This entity should be independent and poised to pursue peaceful coexistence with its
neighbors. It is proposed that fifteen years after achieving the basic objective, there should be a UN
supervised referendum in the entire State to determine, first of all, the peoples choice between
independence and the broader question of accession. If the majority makes a choice for independence, all
parties including India and Pakistan and international community should accept this popular verdict and
carry out its implementation. But if greater numbers of people vote in favor of accession, then a second
round of referendum should take place and the people of whole State should have the choice to vote for
either Pakistan or for India. In this process the State will join either India or Pakistan depending upon the
number of votes each gets.
6

The two-tire referendum is suggested to ascertain the future of Jammu Kashmir State because the simple
majority fixation of the winner, as per the British system of election, is most defective specially while
determining the future of a nation. If there are three candidates aspiring for Independence, Accession to
Pakistan and Accession to India. If the three candidates obtain 35%, 34% and 31% votes respectively, the
candidate obtaining 35% will be declared as winner according to British system of elections whereas the
other two have gained almost twice the votes obtained by the winner. This is most un-just because the
winner represents just over one-third of the votes. This system may be easier to practice in ordinary
elections, but while determining the future of a nation, it is most defective, almost amounting to depriving
Kashmiris of their basic human right.
In its fragmentation, Jammu Kashmir State has two more parts that would need attention: A part of Ladakh
that was taken over by China as consequence of 1962 war with India and second, the areas ceded to
China wide PakistanChina Provisional Border Agreement of 1963. These two parts have scares of
populations. Nonetheless, the 1963 border agreement is already based on the assumption that final
disposition of the border will be negotiated with the next sovereign authority in the State. In this
background, it is advisable to postpone the question of Chinese controlled territory till the final disposition of
the State.
Let us now examine the benefits of solving the Kashmir issue and the losses in store for not solving it, for
Pakistan and India, International Community and for the people of Jammu Kashmir State.
My Fourth Submission (TO THE PEOPLE OF INDIA):
1. The edifice of Indias commitment to higher principles when put to test with reference to its Kashmir
posture, crumbles down on the way. This dichotomy creates serious issues for India. For example, Indias
rise to permanent seat at the UNSC, to which it aspires, is indeed halted because of the persisting negative
image about her Kashmir policy. Otherwise, India would have already gained that status and together with
its nuclear muscle would have succeeded to play its role in the international arena far more effectively.
2. The inability to resolve Kashmir issue has led up to three wars between India and Pakistan, loss of lives
of millions of people and material losses to both the countries. If not resolved, the issue will continue to
haunt the region with the possibility of new wars. Needless to say, that any war between two atomic powers
can lead to a wider destruction. It is therefore, in the national interest of both India and Pakistan to address
the Kashmir issue for a peaceful settlement in keeping with our proposed plan.
3. It is a matter of national ego that India would not like to cede Kashmir to Pakistan. Nonetheless, our
proposal does not call for handing over Kashmir to Pakistan. Instead it calls for handing over Kashmir to its
own people and for re-unification of various parts of the State to make it one independent State.
4. India had accused Pakistan of having entered its troops and tribesmen into Jammu Kashmir on 22 nd
October 1947 and hiding this fact from the UNCIP. It is claimed that Pakistan had then refused to withdraw
her troops and thus justified Indias refusal to hold the promised referendum.
In the above context, it is recalled that contrary to the established laws and practices, India had kept the UN
ignorant of several aspects of the situation. For example, it had entered its troops into Kashmir before
signing the so called instrument of accession. This was as big a crime as compared to what is attributed to
Pakistan. Secondly, no system of justice, religion or civilization would allow shifting of punishment from the
perpetrator of the crime to another party. How could Kashmiris be punished for something attributed to or
done by Pakistan? In this regard, the Indian steps are unjust, immoral and inhuman.
My Fifth Submission (TO THE PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN):
1. In the absence of a Kashmir solution, Pakistan remains dependent on American and Chinese assistance
to meet its requirement of armament, aircrafts, ships etc. This causes a challenge for Pakistans national
independence and its capacity to defy the United States (e.g. drone attacks and loss of Pakistani lives). In
the event of a Kashmir solution, Pakistan will be spared from challenges that confront her independence
and sovereignty, and from further loss of life.
2. Kashmir issue has caused three wars between India and Pakistan and loss of lives to many. If the issue
remains unresolved, the potential of war will continue to haunt the two atomic nations.
3. Our proposed solution holds the promise of a peaceful settlement of the issue.
7

4. Pakistan is faced with a growing water shortage, while water sources in Kashmir remain in Indian control.
In the case of independence of the State, the challenge will almost be finished.
5. In the case of peaceful resolution of Kashmir, India and Pakistan can be friends that will benefit them
both politically and diplomatically.
6. The solution will unfold greater trade to the advantage of both the countries.
My Sixth Submission (to International Community):
1. We, the people of Jammu Kashmir State, are grateful to the United Nations for having promised to us our
birth right of self-determination. This was a matter of relief for us as the then British government that
claimed to be the Mother of Democracy, Indian National Congress that claimed to represent people of India
and All India Muslim League that claimed safeguarding Muslim interests, had in fact left Kashmiris fate to
the mercy of their undemocratic, unjust and autocratic ruler. However, in spite of the promises, the United
Nations has been unable to implement its resolutions.
2. Over sixty-seven years have passed since the promises were made by the United Nations and agreed
by India and Pakistan but have not been fulfilled as yet. Hence the Kashmiri peoples birth right remains
unachieved. A solution to Kashmir issue will in fact accomplish the unfulfilled moral obligation of the United
Nations.
3. In the absence of Kashmir solution on the lines proposed by us, the issue will remain a source of threat
for regional and international peace.
My Seventh Submission (To World Dignitaries):
In near future, I will be writhing individually to world dignitaries who or whos national heros strongly
believed in natural justice, in human and humanitarian values and are politically strong and diplomatically
important rulers like President Barak H. Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry of Abraham Lincolns
and Martin Luther King Juniors America, Head of the State Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister David
Cameron of the Great Britain who actually created Kashmir issue, Xi Jinping President of Mao Tse-Tungs
and Chou Enlais China, Vladimir Putin President of Lenins Russia, Joachim Gauck President of United
Germany, Head of Late Lee Kuan Yews Singapore, government of Charles De Gauls France, President of
Mahatir Muhammads Malaysia, President of the Islamic Republic of Ayatollah Khomeinis Iran, the
successor of King Faisals Saudi Arabia, President of Nelson Mandelas South Africa, Head of Hugo
Schavezs Venezuela, Head of Fiedel Castros Cuba etc. I am sure, if we could present our case
properly, the world conscience is not that dead to ignore our nations sad saga.
My Eighth Submission (To the people of Jammu Kashmir State):
1. It is a proverbial fact that revolutions are the product of struggle waged by dedicated cadre. This is also
true of spiritual revolutions that brought about light against the ills. Similarly, the leaders and organizations
dedicated to national liberation also resolved to continue their struggle until victory. If one set of leadership
fails, another team takes over and continues the struggle with a view to reaching their goal.
2. In spite of anti-freedom dictate from India and Pakistan, the JKLF had carried forward its practical
struggle for freedom that started on 31st July, 1988. This struggle would have achieved its desired goal if
the Indian brutalities and manipulations in Pakistan had not sabotaged it.
3. The Kashmir issue could be solved within a month on the basis of our formula in keeping with norms of
justice, democracy, honor and peaceful course for the competitors provided India and Pakistan fulfill their
promises regarding unconditional referendum, UN plays its promised role and people of the State commit
themselves to freedom and Kashmiri patriotism instead working for the interests of the neighboring
countries of India and Pakistan. One month will be good enough to materialize demilitarization, removal of
landmines and to reconnect three parts of the State.
4. If our proposal is not carried forward, the State of Jammu Kashmir and its people will continue to face the
sufferings they have faced so for.
5. Inability to solve Kashmir issue on peaceful, just and honorable footing, can unfold the potential of more
wars between the two atomic countries. In the midst of this conflict, Jammu Kashmir State will continue to
8

serve as a pitch ground for the competitors to demonstrate their muscle at the cost of the natives
sufferings.
My Prime Submissions:1. The best solution of the Kashmir issue will have to be peaceful, democratic, just and honorable for the
competitors. It will have to be implementable and permanent, based on the following outline.
The entire State of Jammu Kashmir which is fragmented since October 1947 and divided as Jammu
Kashmir, Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, should be re-united to establish therein a democratic
(parliamentary) , federal (consisting of five provinces namely: Kashmir Valley, Jammu, Ladakh, Azad
Kashmir and Gilgat Baltistan), secular (non-communal) and independent sovereign state. This State
shall have friendly relations with other countries of the world, especially with her own neighbors,
particularly with India and Pakistan. It shall also facilitate holding of the UN sponsored referendum
fifteen years after re-unificantion so as to reconfirm its independence or choice for States
accession to India or to Pakistan. (Details of mode of referendum is given under the caption My
Third Submission, Page no. 6 of my appeal).
2. The above mentioned solution will serve the best national interests of India, Pakistan and above all, the
people of all regions of Jammu Kashmir State. If this peaceful and equitable solution is not followed, the
entire sub-continent, Jammu Kashmir State in particular, can be exposed to a disastrous situation.
3. The Kashmir issue can possibly be solved within a short span of one month if India, Pakistan and the UN
reaffirm their commitments given to Kashmiri people before 1957, and if various Kashmiri political leaders
and parties act as true Kashmiri patriots instead of working for the interests of India and Pakistan.
4. Let me clarify that while seeking re-unification of the State, we do not stand in opposition to the Indian
Union or to Pakistan (None of the three parts of the State is a constitutional part of India or Pakistan).
Nevertheless, it remains a point of distress and anger for us that India has been taking an unjust posture
vis-a-vis people of State of Jammu Kashmir, violating its own commitments and following double standards
in the pursuit of its Kashmir policy. Similarly, Pakistani posture vis-a-vis Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan
has been contrary to democracy and peoples rights. It is shameful that Pakistans bureaucracy has for
decades prohibited Kashmiri politics in Gilgit-Baltistan region, even though all the Pakistani documents
including the constitution establish Gilgit-Baltistan as part of Jammu Kashmir State.
My submission to search your consciences:
It is my humble submission to the people specially to the conscientious ones, of India, Pakistan,
International Community and of all three parts of the State, their Governments, Political
Organization, besides people associated with human rights, intellectuals and the media, I urge all of
them to search their conscience, and see that the rulers, local (Kashmiries) and foreign (Indian and
Pakistani), have in fact carried excesses towards Jammu Kashmir State and its people. These
excesses were either direct or indirect and carried varying impacts, adding up to the peoples
miseries. It is therefore important that in order to assure a brighter future for the people of entire
sub-continent and their future generations, injustice already done to the Kashmiri People should be
undone and the formula offered by us, (to accept the former State of the Jammu Kashmir as an
independent political entity for fifteen years followed by an equitable referendum to decide their
ultimate future) be carried forward towards implementation. This formula alone can lead to a
solution that is peaceful, just, democratic, honorable for all, and sustainable. Again, this solution
holds the promise of bringing an end to the difficulties which India, Pakistan and Kashmir have
faced over the past about seven decades.
The gist of my appeal:
The gist of my humble appeal to the peoples and governments of India, Pakistan, all the parts State of
Jammu Kashmir, international community especially United Nations, relevant international human rights
organizations, Groups of Independent States and to regional and international media is to let the State of
Jammu Kashmir be re-united and to emerge as an independent political entity initially for next fifteen years.
This independent State should have a democratic, federal (with Kashmir Valley, Jammu, Ladakh, Azad
9

Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan as its five provinces) and secular (non-communal) system of government,
having friendly relations with all countries especially with its immediate neighbors, particularly with India
and Pakistan. This independent State of Jammu Kashmir should also facilitate holding of UN sponsored
referendum fifteen years after its re-unification. This divided state of Jammu Kashmir has since 1947 been
under the control of India and Pakistan. The time period of at least fifteen years is required for the people to
also taste the rights and wrongs of sovereignty and to compare the merits and demerits of independence of
the State with those of accession to India or to Pakistan because only then could they be able to pin point
the best possible solution of Kashmir issue for themselves and for their future generations.
To begin with the process of plebiscite, let there be a referendum between complete independence of the
State and its accession to India or Pakistan (without explaining to India or to Pakistan). If the majority goes
for independence (i.e. if independence gets more than the total number of votes received by Pakistan and
India put together), all the concerned parties to the issue (India, Pakistan, International community and the
people of all the parts of the Jammu Kashmir State) shall accept the popular verdict and Jammu Kashmir
State should be accepted as an independent and sovereign State for all times to come. But if the majority
goes for accession, a second ballet shall be held between the accession of the State to Pakistan or to
India, and whoever gains the majority of all the votes cast by the people of whole State be declared as the
winner. This two-tier referendum is the best way to pin-point the real majority in a case like Kashmir issue
where there are three candidates (i.e. Complete Independence of the State, Accession of the whole State
to Pakistan and Accession of the whole State to India) in the run.
For making the UN supervised plebiscite more effective and fruit bearing, two things will have to be
adhered to: i). the voters during both the two phases twill have to be given full freedom in making their
choice between independence, accession to India and accession to Pakistan and ii). Whatever may be the
decision of the majority of the voters of entire State of Jammu Kashmir, it must be considered as
permanent, final and unquestionable for all times to come and the losing parties will have to accept the
decision with their hearts open.
In conclusion:
Before concluding my humble request, let me repeat the undeniable fact that the Kashmir issue can be
solved within a month, if India, instead of unduly creating hurdles in the way, concedes their fully deserved
and promised right of self-determination to Kashmiri people, if Pakistan agrees to withdraw its armed forces
from the State of Jammu Kashmir, if United Nations tries harder to make India and Pakistan fulfil their
promises previously made to the people of Jammu Kashmir and above all if political leaders, political
parties, writers, media men, intellectuals, students and poets etc. of Jammu Kashmir State act like real
Kashmiri patriots instead of defending national interests of India and Pakistan at the cost of their own
national interest. With so much to gain for all the stake holders in solving the issue, and so much to lose by
letting the issue go unresolved, only an extremely selfish, narrow minded and, I am sorry to say, an insane
person or nation only would refuse to comply with such a peaceful, equitable, honorable, practicable, just
and everlasting solution of the issue. As such I would repeat my prayer to Almighty God (Parmatma) that all
of us be guided by selflessness, far-sightedness, large heartedness, by principles of justice and by human
and humanitarian values. (Ameen)
Requesting all the addressees to acknowledge the receipt of the appeal with their comments on the subject
matter and thanking them all,
Theirs faithfully,
(Amanullah Khan)
Patron-in-Chief,
Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF).

3. Copies to the present concerned officials of the United Nations keeping in view the following
facts (but before doing so please go through my sixth submission page no. 10):
Kashmir issue has remained unresolved in the United Nations for about seventy long years because (i)most of the concerned UN officials kept on giving-in to the most unjust, uncalled for and irrelevant
demands of India and Pakistan. (ii)- The UN officials even agreed to totally wrong interpretation of the
term Right of Self Determination, to suit the interests of India and Pakistan at the cost of the birth right
(Independence) of Kashmiries as can be seen from the United Nations Commission for India and
Pakistan (UNCIP) Resolution of 5Th January, 1949 where Kashmiries stand deprived of their Right of
Self Determination of their motherland. (iii)- The UN authorities also ignored the fact that they were
11

dealing with the fate of a nation whose population is more than that of the majority of UN member
independent states. (iv). How unfortunate it is, especially for about 18 million Kashmiri people, that
Kashmir issue remained unresolved in UNSC for as long as seventy years at the hands of so called
worlds largest democracy India, Muslim Pakistan and above all international community including UN.
All the above mentioned and other facts have taken the shape of an ugly black spot on the otherwise
fairly beautiful face of the United Nations. As such, the ugly black spot needs be erased as soon as
possible through the combined efforts of the world body.
1. His Excellency Ban Ki Moon, Secretary General United Nations.
2. Permanent Members of UNSC (1. China, 2. France, 3. Russia, 4. UK and 5. USA)
3. Non-Permanent Members of UNSC (1. Angola, 2. Chad, 3. Chile, 4. Jordan, 5. Lithuania, 6.
Malaysia, 7. New Zealand, 8. Nigeria, 9. Spain and 10. Venezuela). Successors of expiring
members after December 2015 are requested to take the responsibility.
4. Human Rights Commission of UN at Geneva.
5. Under Secretary General PDA, UN.
6. Chairman FOURTH Committee UN.
However, I have very recently dispatched a letter to UN Sec. Gen. H.E. Ban Ki Moon reminding him of
his responsibilities vis a vis Kashmir issue. The gist of the letter is as follows:
It will be in the fitness of things if Your Excellency makes a mention in your
forthcoming annual report that twenty million people of Kashmir remain
deprived of their birth right of Self-Determination for the last seventy years in
spite of UNs promise to afford to them this right when the issue was presented
to UN about seventy years ago. However, if you fail to expose even this naked
truth publicly, we Kashmiries will be within our rights to think that UN has not
proved itself the real defenders of basic human rights of the Kashmiri people.
4. Copies to heads and members of the following important international organizations requesting
them to have discussions on the topic and do the justice by not remaining silent spectators while
