The Government Of Kashmir Sent Proposal Of Standstill Agreement On

Tired of all this, Maharaja Hari Singh released Sheikh Abdullah, who, at his first public meeting, repeated that “the demand of Kashmir is freedom”. He also took a Jibe from Jinnah and said, “How can Mr. Jinnah or the Muslim League tell us to join Pakistan? They`ve always pitted us against each fight. Even in our current struggle (Quit Kashmir), he (Jinnah) made propaganda against us and continued to say that there was no fight of any kind in the state. He even called us Goondas.¬†According to K.M Munshi, appointed India`s general agent in Hyderabad, the Indians felt that the conclusion of a status quo agreement with Hyderabad meant that India had lost control of Hyderabad`s affairs. The Hyderabad State Congress opposed it because it was seen by the Indian government as a sign of weakness. [16] V. P. Menon stated that Nizam and his advisers viewed the agreement as a respite from which Indian troops would be withdrawn and the state could establish its position to maintain its independence. [17] Soon, endienam fell under pressure from Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (Ittehad), the Muslim nationalist party active in the state, and withdrew from the agreement. [8] On the morning of 27 October, Qasim Rizvi, the leader of Ittehad, organized a massive demonstration by several thousand activists to block the delegation`s withdrawal. He convinced Nizam that, as India was then linked to the defence of Kashmir, it did not exceed sufficient resources to put pressure on Hyderabad. He claimed that a Hyderabad princess could get a much more favorable deal.

[9] Nizam then appointed a new delegation, dominated by members of the Executive Council opposed to the previous agreement. [10] Former Hyderabad bureaucrat Mohammed Hyder called the event the “October coup.” From that moment on, Qasim Rizvi began calling the gunfire in the Hyderabad administration. [11] On 4 September 1947, General Henry Lawrence Scott, commander of jammu and Kashmir state forces, complained of several covert attacks from Pakistan and called on the Maharaja government to discuss the issue with Pakistan. On the same day, Prime Minister J-K, Janak Singh, formally complained to Pakistan and called for “rapid action”. The Kalat khanat, on the western outskirts of Pakistan, also decided to remain independent. It has signed a status quo agreement with Pakistan. The Defence Committee sent V.P. Menon, secretary of the Ministry of State, to Srinagar for an “on-site study” on the same day. The next day, he returned to New Delhi with his impressions and offered to send troops to Kashmir, stressing the “supreme need to save Kashmir from looters.” Pakistani Governor General Mohammad Ali Jinnah sent his private secretary Khurshid Hasan Khurshid to Srinagar to assure the Maharajah of signing an instrument of accession to Pakistan.
