The armed struggles without the practical support of international community lead to the bad failure. Instead political struggle get the success for the recognition of rights from the states. At the beginning when the Kashmir struggle was yet to launch the most experienced political figures suggest preferring the continuation of political struggle instead the armed struggle. Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) stared the movement with the political objectives and lately converted this in the insurgency. The famous commanders of JKLF leading the insurgency were killed by religious organizations after the launch of Jihad which was in fact the hijacking of Kashmir struggle and it was the turning point when the hope of failure of this struggle raised as India deployed one million security personnel in Kashmir. But struggle continues and these Jihadi factions brought about 35 thousands of teenagers from Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) for the purpose of Jihad. From 1989 to 2001 this human resource fought against Indian Forces from the platform of different religious factions. Actually these religious factions adopted the Jihad as a business to make more money after the Afghan Jihad. But after 9/11 the Western countries support the Indian lobby to corner the Pakistan as a nuclear power and pressurize to withdraw from the Kashmir issue and increase relations with India while Kashmir issue unresolved. Although the USA itself is in bad conditions in Afghanistan and in fact the real fighters are giving Americans a tough time to make any decision independently to quit Afghanistan or to stay for long time.
The moral advantage to the Kashmiri Freedom Fighters was that UNSC has passed two resolutions over the Kashmir and Indians recognized it an issue to be resolved soon. But unfortunately the advocate of Kashmir’s, Pakistan is facing a lot of threats inside and outside from the country and the religious factions which were making money on the name of Jihad have also show the lack of interest to the innocent fighters for their economic and personal development. It was an obligation to take care of these fighters when the state can’t do it due to economic and international pressures. But pure and young blood of these fighters becomes so difficult to survive on the land of Pakistan.
The more regrettable is that the Pakistan Held Kashmir (Azad Jammu & Kashmir) never showed any sincerity and will for the freedom movement of Kashmir. The Leaders of AJK have fears that are if the Kashmir will be free then their political position will be changed and the more able and big stature politicians of IHK will govern the state.
Now the Government of Indian and IHK has announced the Amnesty for the freedom fighters in Kashmir and allow them to join their families after 23 years. It is an appreciable step from Government of India to normalize the life inside IHK. Indian leadership is very visionary and has sense, sincerity and will to serve the country as much better as they can. They want to deal the issues on their own terms and conditions and majority of the freedom fighters who were disappointed in Pakistan are very happy to return in their homeland after a long time and they want to return to the normal life. But what will be the time they have spent and what about their lives passed in Pakistan for a struggle which ends with disappointments and result less. What the policies that Pakistani leadership has in future for them to facilitate them towards the normal life. It is also requested to the India to deal them on the humanitarians’ grounds and try to guide them to get the normal life.
