This important book offers a new perspective on Pakistan-administered Kashmir, also known as Azad Kashmir. Snedden contends that pro-Pakistan Muslims in south-western Jammu and Kashmir, facing extermination at the hands of the Dogra troops, instigated the Kashmir dispute; India has consistently claimed it was Pashtun tribesmen from Pakistan, but these were tribesmen related to the Poonch Muslims.
With comprehensive new information, the author critically examines Azad Kashmir as a political and economic entity in a subordinate relationship with Pakistan, with its population caught up in an international dispute.
This important book offers a new perspective and provides new information and analyses about Azad Kashmir, the least known area of the disputed Jammu and Kashmir.
