Congress assertion wrong, misleading
Sheikh Abdullah and accession
10/28/2013 11:09:23 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 28: The Jammu & Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) on Sunday hailed the father and founder of pro-autonomy and essentially communal Sheikh Abdullah. The JKPCC said that Sheikh Abdullah played a great role in the state's accession to India. The JKPCC was only partly right. The then Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru did accept the Maharaja's offer of accession when Sheikh Abdullah, who had no locus standi in the matter, gave his consent. Actually, Nehru violated the Indian Independence Act when he associated Sheikh Abdullah with the event in the sense that the Act categorically said that the political future of the princely states will be decided by their respective rulers. This is the constitutional position.
It would have been better had the JKPCC also reflected on the circumstances under which Sheikh turned towards Nehru to achieve what he wanted to achieve. Sheikh Abdullah was not pro-India. It bears recalling that Sheikh Abdullah wanted the State of Jammu & Kashmir to become part of Pakistan subject to the condition that it will enjoy an autonomous status and that he would be its undisputed Sultan. Just before the accession of the state to India, he had sent his two emissaries -- Bakshi Ghulam Mohammad and Ghulam Mohammad Sadiq - to Lahore to discuss the accession of Jammu & Kashmir to Pakistan with Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Liaquat Ali Khan and this despite the fact that the Indian India comprising 560-odd princely states was not part of the partition plan. The pleas of Bakshi and Sadiq did not evoke any positive response from the Muslim League leaders. As a matter of fact, both of them rebuffed Bakshi and Sadiq and their leader Sheikh Abdullah. As a result, Bakshi and Sadiq returned to Srinagar empty handed. It was only then that Sheikh Abdullah turned to Jawaharlal Nehru. The truth, in short, is that it was the "mortal fear of elimination" at the hands of Jinnah and Khan that made Sheikh Abdullah turn towards Nehru so that he could achieve in India what he wanted to achieve in Pakistan.
It would be very important to know what Jinnah and Khan had said about Sheikh Abdullah. Of the Sheikh, Jinnah had said: "Oh! That tall man who sings the Koran (Quran) and exploits the people". Liaquat Ali Khan had said: "This quisling (Sheikh Abdullah) - an agent of the Congress (read Nehru) for many years -- who struts about the stage bartering the life, honour and freedom of the people for the sake of personal profit and power".
Sheikh Abdullah achieved both profit and power through Nehru's "generous and unchecked support" by cleverly camouflaging his real motive. His real motive was independence from India and his objective was to establish "Switzerland-type Independent Kashmir". And, this became more than clear on October 27, 1947. That day in Srinagar, Sheikh Abdullah said: "We have picked up the crown of Kashmir from dust. The question of joining India or Pakistan can wait. We have to complete our independence first". All this should clear all the cobwebs of confusion and establish that Sheikh Abdullah was never interested in joining democratic India; he wanted to join theocratic Pakistan with the condition that he will exercise unbridled powers in autonomous Kashmir.
