Azad Jammu And Kashmir
Every individual, as a human being, has 3 stages in his life. Such as Childhood, Youth and old age. Similarly, nations and states also have these three stages. But if we talk about Azad Jammu and Kashmir situation then this nation is still in childhood in that regard. I remember when I was in school, I like to hold rallies in the name of Kashmir. Shouting slogans and waving my hands in the air, making emotional speeches, and abusing India. But unfortunately, we can not understand the real awareness of the Kashmir issue.
Probably this is the third generation to grow up in the name of Kashmir with emotional slogans. There has been a change in perspective. Now, these emotional slogans have become more organized or, as we can say, commercialized. The younger generation sells their wits in exchange for a few bucks, shields, medals, wow noises and claps. In the name of Kashmir, the ceremonies and functions are promoted by paralyzing wit and fervor.
The Epic Story Of Azad Jammu And Kashmir
Once I attend a convention in which a nine-year-old girl who may not even know how to name herself. She was addressing her speech with the phrase. In 1947, Kashmir was part of Pakistan but the tyrant India could not tolerate this and took it from us. Then she was reading this poem again and again, “Jannat Kisi kafir ko mile ha na mile gi.” She may not even know the meaning of “Kafir.”
Another girl, expressing her knowledge in English, said: ” The relationship between the Azad Jammu and Kashmir or Kashmir and Pakistan is more than 2,000 years ago.”
One boy came and said that in 1947, the British sold Kashmir to Maharaja Gulab Singh.
Another boy quoted Kashmir’s solution by saying.”If you think Kashmir is the backbone of Pakistan, then put a Pakistani flag on your chest and put Kashmiri on one side, until it is free.”
One young gentleman stated. “Probably the solution to Kashmir freedom is war. But the Kashmiri mothers sleep every night thinking that when they wake up in the morning, the Pakistani army will arrive to rescue us.”
Wrong Perspectives & Extremism
The people and the media on Kashmir news now, who teach five or six-year-old children the words such as bombs, chopped bodies, running blood. Body rags, daggers, sword, guns forget that they are teaching their children extremism with those words. These kids will become no one but extremists when they grow up. “War is necessary to keep the nation united”. This argument was given by a well-respected judge that the United States fights wars to keep their nation united.
Such lies are not only poisonous for our youth but also violate the legitimate rights of Kashmir valley. Knowing the true causes of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir issue or Kashmir dispute is the first step towards solving this problem. Instead of teaching our nation’s future intellectually, we are teaching them lies of which we have been suffered for seventy years. Our sentiments for Kashmir have been so confined that a speaker always worried about his speech regardless of the problem of Kashmir.
I did not understand how to survive in the world of science and technology, by paralyzing our minds and tearing our throats out, shaking hands like a sword in the air.??

Kashmir Solidarity Day
Do you know about Kashmir solidarity Day.? We observe Kashmir Day or Kashmir Solidarity Day as a public holiday in Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) on February 5 every year. It is a globally recognized day observed by people, predominantly Kashmiris, worldwide. The day is regarding public processions, special prayers in mosques for the liberation of Kashmir. Also for protests that are against the Indian oppression of Kashmir. Moreover, It focuses on showing the support and unity of Pakistan with the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir. Also, to pay homage to Kashmiri martyrs who lost their lives fighting for Kashmir’s freedom.
Another common spectacle is the formation of a human chain on all major routes leading to Azad Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan. People stand in lines with their hands gripped forming a human chain on all major crossings into AJK from Pakistan. This expresses unity and solidarity to reassure Kashmiris that they are not alone in their struggle to get freedom. By special cultural programs and festivals, we can celebrate and promote Kashmiri culture and tradition. Kashmir latest news and entertainment channels air special programs, talk shows, dramas. Also Kashmiri songs about the oppression suffered by Kashmiris over the years. We should celebrate this day to remember the goals that we have to achieve for our Kashmiri people. Also develop the same awareness in our children instead of promoting wrong perspectives, extremism, and lies.
