PAK President’s ‘Formula 4’… Was the matter really made between Atal-Musharraf on the Kashmir issue?

New Delhi: There is a lot of talk about India-Pakistan relations. Intermittent calls are made for talks but it has been made clear from India’s side that it is not possible without curbing terrorism. At the same time, Pakistan does not forget to sing the melody of Kashmir. At this time, when there is a pauper’s condition in Pakistan, its attitude is similar at that time also. Although there have been some such attempts in the past, in which the 2001 Agra summit is definitely mentioned. When Pervez Musharraf came to India in 2001, nearly two years after the Kargil war, the wounds of the Kargil war were still fresh, but it was expected that the bitterness might have subsided. In history, the Agra summit is remembered in such a way that it was a big occasion when the matter kept getting made. Former Foreign Minister of Pakistan Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri has written in his book ‘Neither a Hawk nor a Dove’ that the solution of Kashmir is in the hands of both the governments and wanted to do it. Then the question is also why it is not resolved. In this conversation, Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf proposed a four-point solution.

1. The first of the four points of Musharraf’s plan was that lakhs of soldiers are stationed in Kashmir on both sides of the LoC. According to Musharraf’s proposal both India and Pakistan would have to withdraw their troops for a lasting peace. Will it be a phased withdrawal or something both the sides need to consider.

2. There will be no change in the boundaries of Kashmir. However, people of Jammu and Kashmir will be allowed to move freely across the Line of Control (LoC). If India accepted Musharraf’s plan, India would have to accept Pakistan’s sovereignty over Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (which Pakistan refers to as its Azad Kashmir province) and in return Pakistan would accept Indian occupation of part of Jammu and Kashmir on behalf of India. will accept

3. Pakistan had long been an advocate of ‘self-determination of Kashmiris’, but Musharraf was willing to give it up in favor of greater autonomy. This proposal also meant that Article 370 would remain in Jammu and Kashmir forever and the Bharatiya Janata Party, which had been talking about abolishing it from the beginning, would have to leave the issue.

4. A Joint Supervision Mechanism in Jammu and Kashmir involving India, Pakistan and Kashmir. Musharraf’s emphasis was on involving the local Kashmiri leadership in this. Years after the summit failed, Musharraf claimed that the Indian side had reneged on the agreement while the draft resolution was ready for signature. Musharraf said in a program in 2004 that I was told that the Indian cabinet had refused to give its approval.

Musharraf mentioned talks after 5 years like this

Five years after the talks, General Pervez Musharraf wrote his autobiography ‘In the Line of Fire’ in 2006, and mentioned this incident like this, ‘Met Indian Prime Minister Vajpayee at around 11 pm. The atmosphere was serious. I told him in two words that it seems that there is someone who is above both of us and in front of whom neither of us can walk. This embarrassed both of us.

Advani has written in My Country My Life that the General had not taken my name but was alluding to me. Atal Bihari Vajpayee termed Musharraf’s statement as a complete lie and said that his obstinate attitude, trying to prove terrorism in Kashmir as a war of independence proved to be important in failing the Agra Agreement.

Advani’s question blew Musharraf’s face
Lal Krishna Advani had asked Musharraf such a question even before the Agra summit, which made his face pale. There should be an extradition treaty between the two countries and Musharraf said yes. Meanwhile, Advani said that before this treaty is formally implemented, if you hand over Dawood Ibrahim, responsible for the 1993 Mumbai blasts, to India, then it will be of great help in taking the peace process forward. Musharraf’s face changed after hearing this.
