The solution of the Kashmir problem is a test for the
honesty of the British Government. The people of the State deserve the
same status as the people of British India deserve. Our State is at present
confronted with a most critical situation. None but Sheikh Abdullah and
his comrades can face this situation. Their immediate release is very essential.
The present ministry consists mostly of the enemies of the people. This
ministry is keeping the leaders behind the prison bars by way of mischief.
The idea of Azad Kashmir is ridiculous. The wisest course is to join the
Indian Union under the leadership of Sheikh Abdullah.
