AJK rightfully belongs to Pakistan, says Abdullah

Like Pakistan, India too has been reluctant to accept the ground reality in Kashmir.

"The status won't change even if they fight unlimited wars". On 2nd November 1947, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru declared in his address on All India Radio that once the soil of Kashmir is cleared from the infiltrators, the people's wishes would be ascertained on the question of state's accession with India.

Abdullah, who is also Srinagar MP, said Jammu and Kashmir is landlocked and "independent Kashmir" is not an option. "Only then peace will return (to the Valley)", he said. "We have nothing except Allah's name", he said.

"Restoration of autonomy to Jammu and Kashmir is the only viable solution to decades' old problem". "But the people of Jammu (and) Kashmir are fully aware of his irresponsible character, his non-seriousness and the level to which he can stoop down for his selfish gains and because of these facts no one takes his statements seriously", Malik said.

In an indirect reference to separatists, Abdullah said those who are talking of Azadi are wrong. "We are proud citizens of India but nobody in J&K has accepted us till date".

Veterans Day Events in the Mid-Ohio Valley
A brief memorial ceremony will take place immediately following the parade, in Folsom City Lions Park at the Veterans Memorial. He's glad to see such a good turnout and the thanks shown by people for military veterans and their service.

(Neb)-It's Veterans Day - Or At Least The Legal Holiday
Over the years, the honoring of all veterans was included, and Congress changed the holiday's name to Veterans Day in 1954. A visit to the Fallon County Veterans Memorial in the city park is another way to acknowledge Veterans Day.

Anil Kapoor to reprise his detective role in 'Race 3'?
Along with Salman, the film stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Saqib Saleem, Bobby Deol, Freddy Daruwala and Daisy Shah in lead roles. Moreover, looking at Bobby Deol being one of the new entrant, it seems he might be the one to reprise Anil's role in Race 3 .

In another tweet, he said, "You can't pick the parts of the Instrument of Accession that suit the politics of the BJP while conveniently abrogating responsibility for the rest". "That is the reason behind the current situation in the state", he said.

"You do not remember the instrument of accession and claim the other side of Kashmir administered by Pakistan". "We are landlocked. We have China on one side, Pakistan on the other side and India on the third side". All the three countries are nuclear powers and have atomic bombs. "This is not only a negative approach but sets a unsafe precedence where the facts are deliberately being muzzled". Governments at the centre have never been honest with Kashmir and its leadership.

Around One lakh West Pakistan Refugees settled in different parts of Jammu Region since 1947 have nearly made up their mind to step out of Jammu and Kashmir if the government failed to address their long pending "humanitarian" issue of granting them the citizenship rights. We have always been forthcoming with them but India betrayed us and our trust.

He said, "Internal autonomy is our right". What the Narsimha Rao government offered after so much bloodshed in the state was to restore the pre-1965 nomenclature of Wazir-e-Azam and Sadr-e-Riyasat in the state. "Unfortunately, the feeling was not mutual which has resulted in the growth of alienation and general mistrust among a huge section of people in the Valley towards Government of India and its initiatives".
