India’s Army Actions During Governor-Generalship of Lord Mountbatten

1. Ruler of princely state Gujarat Kathiawar announced accession with Pakistan. India attacked Gujarat Kathiawar and occupied it per force.

2. India attacked State in Southern India, Hyderabad Sikanderabad, and occupied per force.

3. State Jammu Kashmir was a collection of 7 states Jammu, Kashmir, Poonch, Gilgit, Baltistan, Laddakh, Bhadarwah and Jenani.

After August 15, 1947 Jammu Police searched houses of Muslims and took away even kitchen knives if blade was 5 inch or longer. Starage enough that houses of Hindus were not searched.

Trained armed groups of Rashtaria Sevak Sang, Hindu Mahasabha and Akali Dal protected by Indian army started entering Jammu through Gurdaspur and Kathuwa soon after declaration of Independence of Pakistan and India (August 15, 1947). *This passage to enter Jammu was provided by Boundary Commission of Sir Cyril Radcliffe.*

These India trained terrorists started killing Muslims in villages of Jammu, looting their houses and putting their crops on fire.
Later, regular Indian Army also entered Jammu and started giving coverage to Hindu and Sikh terrorists in killing Muslims, looting and arson. By end of September, 1947 when enough Indian army had enter and taken over control of borders of Jammu a& Kashmir, killing of Muslims in urban areas of Jammu started.

During September, 1947 Muslims of the state army and citizens in Gilgit and Baltistan announced their loyalty to Pakistan. They took over control of Gilgit & Baltistan and raised flag of Pakistan on the Governor House. Then they sent a messenger to Mr Muhammad Ali Jinnah in Karachi to send his representative to run the government there. The representative named Political Agent, arrived during first week of November, 1947 and took over the control.

By November 07, 1947 around 300,000 Muslims men, women and children had been killed in Jammu.

In the meantime, on October 27, 1947 Muslims of Jammu Kashmir started struggle against Indian army by snatching weapons from them and killing them. Lord Mountbatten, who had been cunningly appointed by the Indian government as Governor General of India, called fighter planes from Burma and bombarded the Kashmir villages to kill the freedom fighters. Muslim freedom fighter took over control of Muzaffarabd, Mirpur, Bhimber and part of Poonch, etc. with support of the citizens and announced accession to Pakistan

Visualising that the freedom struggle of Muslims was getting out of control of Indian Army, Sheikh Abdullah (who was in prison since 1934) wastaken out and made Prime Minister of Jammu Kashmir. Then Indian Prime Minister Nehru flew to UNO headquarter and begged for seize fire and accepted to allow fare and free elections in Jammu Kashmir to allow the people to join country of their choice, Pakistan or India which India is denying till today and world powers and UNO are sleeping on it because it is for Muslims. Had it been in favour of non-Muslim, world powers would have jumped in and UNO would have passed resolution to allow world powers a military action.
