New Delhi: The Guardian has exposed the ugly face of India, the claimant of the biggest democracy, India adopted dark tactics to prevent the release of the Butcher Papers on Occupied Kashmir.
According to the details, the international media has also spoken about India’s breach of promise to the Kashmiris.

The Butcher Papers on Kashmir contain correspondence between Jawaharlal Nehru and General Roy Butcher on Kashmir and the ceasefire. According to The Guardian, General Roy Butcher advised Nehru to take the Kashmir issue to the UN. took itself to the UN for a peaceful settlement, but in time the annexation was usurped.
According to the papers, in 1952, Nehru made a statement in the Indian Lok Sabha that Kashmiris would decide Kashmir themselves, and would not impose their will on Kashmiris at the point of a gun.
In October 2022, the chairperson of the Nehru Museum requested that the Butcher Papers be made public for research purposes, but the Indian Ministry of External Affairs said that making the Butcher Papers public could have political and external implications for India.
It should be noted that India usually declassifies official correspondence and documents after 25 years, and several times in the past, journalistic organizations and activists have tried to make the Butcher Papers public. We support Pakistan’s position on the Kashmir issue.
After the report of The Guardian, questions arise whether the Modi government has violated the previous promises to the Kashmiris of India by suspending Article 370. Does India want to take away their right to self-determination from Kashmiris by force? After all, how long will the international media and the UN remain silent on the humanitarian atrocities on Kashmiris?
