  1. We should help the people of Kashmir decide their own future and avoid world war 3. There are three nuclear powers in conflict in Kashmir. In 1947 Ram Chandra Kak the Prime Minister of Jammu and Kashmir REFUSED to join India and wanted to join Pakistan so Indian Agents arrested him and the Indian troops invaded Jammu and Kashmir. The Kashmiri State Forces fought along with the 60,000 Kashmiris who were in the British Army, who had just returned from the Second World War fought back and asked Pakistanis for help and stopped the Indian Army. So India took the issue of Kashmir to the UN and the UN sided with the people of Jammu and Kashmir and asked for a referendum to be held where the people could decide their own future. Under international law and on the UN Maps Jammu and Kashmir remained an independent country https://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/map/profile/kashmir.pdf https://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/map/profile/SouthAsia.pdf https://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/map/profile/world.pdf https://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/map/dpko/UNMOGIP.pdf Indias claim is that Harri Singhs great grandfather Gulab Singh signed the treaty of Amritsar (1846) with the British to collect taxes and therefore in 1947 the government of Indian said that this gave Harri Singh the authority to ask the Indian Army for assistance after he was removed from Kashmir when the population rebelled against him. Harri Singhs great grandfather Gulab Singh (Hindu Dogra) betrayed the Sikhs (who he worked for) in the Anglo-Sikh war (1845 & 1846). Therefore after the defeat of the Sikhs, the 7 year old Sikh Maharaja Duleep Singh was kidnapped by the East India Company and forced to sign The Treaty of Lahore on 9 March 1846 which gave his ally Jammu and Kashmir and its people to the East India company https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sgi2PMGgZM The Treaty of Amritsar (1846) & Lahore violated the Slavery Abolition Act 1833 that abolished slavery in the British Empire. Therefore Gulab Singh and Harri Singhs authority was not recognised by the UN & was invalid under international law and British law. Hence the UN NEVER approached Harri Singh and did not recognise Indias claim and Jammu and Kashmir remained an independent country under international law and on the UN Maps. Harri Singhs powers totally lapsed after the Treaty of Amritsar lapsed under Article 7 of the Indian Independence Act 1947 before treaty of accession that India claims he signed. All powers reverted to the people hence the call for the plebiscite (referendum) under UN Security Council resolutions 91, 98, 96, 80, 47, 38, 39, 51, 122, 123, 126, 307 http://unscr.com/en/resolutions/doc/98 as only they could decide. Article 7 of the Indian Independence Act 1947 provides that with the lapse of His Majestys suzerainty over the Indian states, all treaties, agreements, obligations, grants, usages and sufferances will lapse. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1947/30/pdfs/ukpga_19470030_en.pdf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-S8xyn1cgY
