President Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), Sardar Masood Khan declaring Ghazi-e- Millat, Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan as a towering political leader, a trailblazer freedom fighter and dynamic personality in the history of Kashmir, has pledged to carry forward his mission to liberate Kashmir from Indian subjugation and make it a part of Pakistan.
The resolve was expressed by him while speaking as chief guest at the All Azad Kashmir Inter-University Declamation Contest organized by the University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (UAJK) on Saturday.
The event was dedicated to founding President of Azad Kashmir Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan, whose 18th death anniversary was observed across AJK.
Sardar Masood was candid about the reasons why Ghazi-e- Millat was the tallest among his contemporaries and said that after getting an early education in Kashmir and Pakistan and higher education from England, Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan started his outstanding career as the youngest member of the Praja Sabha under Maharajah Hari Singh, then ruler of Jammu and Kashmir.
He said it was Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim who had mobilized all political forces of Kashmir and hosted an important meeting at his residence in Srinagar on July 19, 1947, to craft a consensus on the future of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The state president said when the government of Maharaja Hari Singh decided to arrest Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan for his political activities, he traveled incognito from Srinagar to Muzaffarabad.
