dated July 20, 1954: Pakhtoons in Kashmir

Over a lakh Pakhtoons living in Jammu and Kashmir as nomad tribesmen without any nationality became Indian subjects on July 17. Batches of them received certificates to this effect from the Kashmir Prime Minister, Bakshi Ghulam Mohammed, at village Gutligabh, 17 miles from Srinagar. Paying warm tributes to the Pakhtoons for their role in the country's liberation struggle, the Kashmir Premier said that not only the Pakhtoons, but the entire people of India were proud of the Khan brothers, leaders of the Pakhtoons. Earlier, in the course of an address of welcome to the Prime Minister, the Pakhtoons said they solidly supported the State's accession to India and were prepared to sacrifice everything to defend Kashmir's relationship with India. The Pakhtoons were also determined to defend the freedom of Kashmir, the address said.
