Agreement Of Karachi

S.K. Sinha said Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had briefed the Indian delegation ahead of the Karachi meeting, informing them that the UN resolution recognized the legality of Kashmir`s accession to India and that, therefore, any “no man`s land” would belong to India. The Pakistani delegation should provide the UN Commission with evidence of the de facto positions of its control over the entire territory they claim. Sinha said that, based on this principle, the agreement delineated several hundred square kilometers of territory on the Indian side, while there were no Indian troops in that area. [5] The agreement appears to have been kept as a secret document until the 1990s. It was not reported in the 1949 press articles, the memoirs of Sardar Ibrahim or other sources. It was first revealed in the Azad-Kashmir Supreme Court`s Gilgit and Baltistan (Northern Region) ruling in the 1990s, which states that the agreement “appears to have been executed on April 28, 1949.” Later, it was published as Annex XVII of the Constitution of Azad Jammu & Kashmir by Judge Syed Manzoor Hussain Gilani in 2008. [1] [2] According to Christopher Snedden, the agreement was very favorable to Pakistan and deprived Azad Kaschmiri of important powers and responsibilities. [3] Navnita Behera, however, says that the joint secretary of the Ministry of Kashmir affairs has acquired the “best claim to be the real head of the Kashmiri government of Azad” as a result of the agreement.

[7] B. The delegations of India and Pakistan, duly authorized, reached the following agreement: Part I of the Agreement concerned the structure and functioning of the “Civil Administration of the Kashmir Region”, which set out the rules applicable to the Government of Azad Kashmir. The second part dealt with the financial arrangements by which Pakistan made advances. The third part is entitled “Distribution of functions between the governments of Pakistan, the government of Azad Kazad and the Muslim Conference”. [4] The people of PoK and Gilgit Baltistan are now demanding the immediate abolition of the agreement, with all the rights granted to citizens in letter and spirit. Jamil Maqsood, an official of the United People`s National People`s Party (UKPNP), said in Brussels: “While we are critically analysing the agreement, we are learning that Pakistan has been held responsible for the management of the region, not the development of the region. Not a single point is mentioned about the Pakistani establishment that is developing the region. You took control of a large area and declared 4,000 square miles of independent space (Azad Kashmir), while giving Pakistan control of the 28,000 square miles without supporting the legitimate local administration. “Christopher Snedden says the government in Azad Kashmir and the Muslim Conference accepted the deal because they wanted Azad Kazad Kazad to join Pakistan, which they were expecting soon with the promised referendum. According to him, this relationship resembled that of Pakistan with its other provinces.

[6] The 830-kilometer ceasefire line set by the agreement began at a southernmost point west of the Chenab River in Jammu. It took place in an approximate arc to the north, then northeast to the coordination of the NJ9842 maps, about 19 km north of the Shyok River. [6] With regard to the loss of Gilgit-Baltistan, Snedden Sardar accepted Sardar Ibrahim`s argument that Azad Kashmir`s physical ties with Gilgit-Baltistan were weak. . . .
