‘‘Pir’ of Kabailies who retreated without Kashmir || LIVE IMAGE

Pir Sahib of Manki Sharif,  as was recognized by far and wide  in Pakistan,  ,  Was from North-West Frontier Province.                                                                                                                                                                  Very little is known  of him by most of us     Indelible mark in the history of Kashmir but for wrong reasons,  left by him   can not be ignored,  Mention of his role is a dire necessity to do justice with the events  pertaining to the partition days  of the Jammu and Kashmir State .

 History, to me, is always at the mercy of the writer or who asks  for  to write. And our historians played to the galley , thus  under played rather ignored it altogether, his part  Acts of his personified, death , wanton destruction, rape , horrifying  innumerable suffering caused on innocents hapless masses are hard  not to note off, even at this juncture to set record straight His advent with much excitement  towards state from Muzzarabad sector  lasted here mere  for  a few days much less than a fortnight, But   resulted   in to an  shocking  disgraceful ignominious  hasty retreat .

  Which he could not reconcile as had not in his wildest dream thought of tasting a failure and carried till his untimely tragic death at the prime of his age in a road accident 1n 1960.

 Born in 1923 at Manki Sharif in a renowned family of Pir Aminul Hasanat Political bug bite him at a very early age time,. conscious of the active role in promoting the Pakistan Movement by  Ulema and Mashaikh of the  subcontinent., He thought best way to be at center stage be politically active  than to follow religious studiesJinnah  a Barrister of repute , professing to be the believer   in law of justice and democratic values and  its procedures But when  it came to settle score with his adversaries  once friends .

Behaved like a rustic rancorous restoring  to fanning  religious sentiment of which he had not even  to a basic knowledge nor he followed the tenets of the faith which he pleaded, Rash and dash with ailing health  pushed him  to finish the matter in his life Went in to hooliganism  calling for direct action, Results of it  made him wiser and clear to the methodology to be adopted to realize his long cherished goal to make his adversaries eat  humble pie .

He roped in  Pir Sahib of Manki Sharif,  to  breach the bastion of Khan Abdul Gaffer khan , Red Gandhi  got  his services to play a pivotal role in securing thumping success for the Muslim League in the Referendum held in NWFP in 1947, which decided the accession of the NWFP to Pakistan. 

 Riding on the crest of this victory at a very young age of 24 ,over-zealousness in him to please  his new found mentor in Jinnah, whom he promised to bring his much cherished Kashmir to put in his pocket, met him his nemesis , and carried the ignominy of his defeat which he could not reconcile, till his death. 

Pir sb gave a war cry of jehad and pronounced it is a call of Allah to liberate Kashmir and propagate and furtherance of  the Islam  there An aura of spiritual powers he yielded were  created by his chosen to create fear and admiration  one of the  incident among many worth mention  is    On a rainy cold winter night ,Pir of Manki Sharif (r.a) suddenly arrived Alipur Sayyidan with a large body of armed followers to visit Hazrat Sayyid Jama'at Ali Shah (r.a).When Pir Sahib entered Bab e Rahmat , Hazrat Sahib(Hazrat Sayyid Jama'at Ali Shah (r.a).) asked ,Who is there? "I am faqir of Manki",the answer came.

Hazrat Sahib got up and greeted Pir sahib and commented "King has arrived at faqir's home,why did you not inform me?" Duty of younger one is to come to pay respect without informing ".Pir Sahib responded. Call Akhtar ( Sayyid Akhtar Hussain Shah (r.a),grandson and author of Sirat Amir e Millat) to make arrangements for dinner. "I do not eat at night and this is my routine for past 40 years." Pir Sahib explained and "it is my routine for the past 100 years that I don't let a guest sleep without food." 

Hazrat Amir e Millat (r.a) responded.Everyone ate the dinner followed by green tea .On 4th day Hazrat asked "Why did you take trouble to visit me? ", "When I received your letter, I decided to come in person to listen and obey your orders."Pir of Manki Sharif answered. Hazrat Sahib advised " Now is the time to serve Din and Muslim nation.Mr.Jinnah Sahib is doing our work and I want you to help him. 

Pir Sahib invited Jinnah Sahib to Manki Sharif and organized a great conference. Hazrat Amir e Millat could not attend because of ill health and instead sent his eldest son Siraj e al-Millat Sayyid Muhammad Hussain Shah (r,a) and gave him a gold medal.300 rupees in a pouch and other gifts for Quid e Azam (r.a). Pir Sahib greeted him with respect and requested that he chair the conference. When Siraj al-Millat gave the gold medal to Jinnah on behalf of Amir e Millat (r.a),he became very happy, stood up and said "now I am successful, please put this gold medal around my neck." 

 His  marched in ruthlessly  with big unorganized Tribes called Kablees riding on the crust of religions fervor under command of regular Pakistan army both in service and ex service, deserters of Maharaja Army  with tacit support of British army officers at the helm of affairs in both the armies  made his entry via Muzzafarabad,

He promised  in return Jennat, Hoours , Saabaas and what not to the Kabalis  At the same time  employing every  methods  in the book of terror in the  name of religion, loot, rape plunder, massacre, carting young girls to embrace death by jumping in wells and rivers, filled to brim, carting in hundreds of lorries on whom they can lay hand alive to be sold in  cities of Pakistan and as far as  north frontiers  , which is well witnessed and narrected. This was all carried in the name of furtherance Islam.   

He  was eager and at e same time impatient   to take credit of having grabbed Kashmir sheer by his efforts  to pass on as a gift   to Jinnah who was impatiently was waiting for it, 

At   Baramulla,disorderly savage Kabalis, did not waited for Jaanat to taste Hoourees but wasted much precious time in baser pleasures. In the process whole white world though supporters a were aghast by the acts of  rape,killing nuns  and others. 

He stared getting nightmares, Indian Army had landed and advancing. It is said he one  morning  spread RAAMAAL, prediction cloth which Moulaahaas often carry  just to predict course of advance  found utter to his disappointment  Kashmir is lost forever. 

And  was forced to make a hasty  unannounced    retreat  in disgust  ever  to  be seen even near the boundary of Azad Kashmir/POK. 

There after we had 1965,1971,mercenary activist proxy war,for about+22 years now in between Kargil war, boundaries couldn't be altered . 

But commoner suffered for no fault of ours.
