The two accessions are completely different and it would be a distorsion of history if one claims that the two cases are the same.
Here are the reasons:
1. The accession to India by Hari Singh was conditional (to a plebiscite). Hunza was unconditional and permanent.
2. The masses in Kashmir (minus Sh. Abdullah) were against it. Ref: read the letter of K.H Khurshid from Srinagar on 12.10.1947 to M.A Jinnah.
In Hunza (& also Nagar), historian do not record any such objection.

@iAliTajGB @AbdulKhalidPTI @jamilnagri can attest to this
3. Hari Singh, as per international law was in no position to sign the accession. Because
- he didnt have control over his state (AJK already made a parallel govt).
- he wasn't in anyway a true representative of the people of majority of J&K. Mirs of Hunza, Nagar were!!

If you haven't done so as yet, once in your life you must take your children by road to Gilgit and Hunza one year. Skardu, Shigar and Khaplu the next year and Chitral in the third year.
Not this year, though. This year, stay put and stay safe.

The last Governor of #Gilgit was Brigadier Ghansara Singh Jamwal, r/o Raipur Bantalab, #Jammu
The brave Brigadier had stoically accepted the role of Governor on 1st August 1947 despite the known dangers of this position. #DograHistory #JK
When Pakistani raiders attacked J&K in Oct 1947, Major Brown and #Gilgit Scouts which he commanded, rose in revolt. More than a 1000 men surrounded the Governor’s house and Brigadier Ghansara Singh along with his men, including the driver and attendant put up a brave fight.
Raja Sultan Abdul Hamid DSP of Gilgit Baltistan joined Major Brown in his treachery and lead the Gilgit Police to the Governor’s house. Brig Ghansara Singh surrendered only after Maj Brown gave an ultimatum that all non Muslims in Gilgit Agency would be killed.
