(1/5) To Nehru, Sheikh Abdullah was Kashmir.He clearly brought out that “National Conference has stood for and still stands for Kashmir joining the constituent assembly of India” #Kashmir
(1/6)On Oct 22,1947 observing Kashmir’s uncertainty Pakistan broke its standstill agreement with Kashmir,Pakistan first blocked the supplies of essentials (food, petrol and clothing) to the state and sent tribal raiders to take control of the state #KashmirMeinTiranga
(1/7)On Oct 26,1947 as the fear of losing his state to raiders gripped the Maharaja,he signed the Instrument of Accession and left for safety to Jammu.India accepted the Instrument of Accession,Now Kashmir was officially India’s part #KashmirMeriJaan
(1/8) Now, It was India’s turn to send Army Aid to Kashmir but Mountbatten clearified that “as soon as invaders are thrown out and law & order reinstated, we will have plebiscite” #Kashmirstory
(1/9) On 27 Oct,1947 Finally,Troops reached Kashmir and repulsed invaders,sheikh and his party National Conference helped Indian Army during operation #KashmirLooksAhead
(1/10) Jinnah ordered Pak Army to join invaders but Pak Army denied saying kashmir is now India’s state and we also cannot attack our own people as both armies have British shoulders with common Commander-in-Cheif General Auchinlake #KashmirIsOurWeAreKashmir
(1/11) With no other option left Jinnah invited Mountbatten & Nehru for meeting over kashmir issue, Patel opposed it saying Jinnah should visit Delhi, Nehru wanted to attend but he was not well #KashmirMeriJaan
(1/12) At end on Nov 1,1947 Mountbatten alone went to Pakistan,Jinnah denounce India for using force to occupy kashmir, he convinced Mountbatten that if India demilitarise he would also call-off aggression #Kashmiris
(1/13) India expected Britain to use its influence on Pakistan to call off aggression in J&K, but Clement Attlee, PM of UK, refused to intervene and suggested Nehru to rely on “proper channel” of the United Nation, Mountbatten also suggested same to Nehru #kashmirIssue

(1/16)Nw wht happened nxt ws a betrayal to Nehru,In UNSC Britain&America started pursue thr political interests&bypass India’s appeal infact thy also rejected India’s Pakistani Invaders claim stating Pakistan gave no support to invaders,India objected bt nothing cud hv changed nw
