ISLAMABAD: Nawab of Junagarh, Muhammad Jahangir Khanji once again exposed the real face of Indian and called it a country of hypocrisy, double standards, violation of fundamental and minorities’ rights.
In a video statement, Jahangir Khanji said that Indian forces illegally occupied Kashmir in October 1947. He demanded the Indian govt to resolve the Kashmir issue as per the resolution of the United Nations.
When talking about Junagar State, he said that Nawab Mohamed Mahabat Khanji III was in favor of joining Pakistan. On November 9, 1947, he announced the approval of the Jinagar State Council to join Pakistan, but India illegally occupied the state and Nawab had moved to Karachi.
“India carried out so-called referendum in Junagarh state and desired results were achieved on the strength of the Indian Army,” he added.
Back in 2016, the nawab of Junagarh, Muhammad Jahangir Khanji had said that the Junagarh state should be merged with Pakistan.
“The occupation of Junagarh by India violated Article 26 of the Vienna Convention on Law of Treaties and the state should be merged with Pakistan”, he said.
It must be pointed out that Junagar is a prince state before the division of India. At the time of division, more than 550 states have chosen to join Pakistan or India. The Nawa of Junagar decided to join Pakistan.
