This thread deals with the devious & dubious role of former PM of J&K, Mr Ramchandra Kak during those tumultous years of 1940s, when J&K was at the crossroads of its future engagements & the big picture that was emerging in #India

#Jammu #Himachal #Kashmir #Accession #Dogra
As u all r aware that #JammuKashmir had 2 major parties viz National Conference headed by #SheikhAbdullah & Muslim Conference by #YusufShah.
RC Kak was the person who exploited the differences b/w them for the "God Knows what" benefit

#Kashmir #Jammu #Himachal
The major reason of rift among these larties was the #Lahore Declaration by #Muslim League in 1940. NC was secular by nature and had good equations with #Nehru and #Congress, while MC was communal & was completely in favour of acceeding with #Pakistan

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.
