UK based Kashmiris and their progress
This page is dedicated for politics here in the UK and back at home in Kashmir. In my opinion both go hand in hand. Of Pakistani residing in UK majority (90%) are most probably from Azad Kashmir. The 1st generation was that of those economic migrants who came during General Ayyub's Government in Pakistan and were the direct result of the dam's flooding in 1960s. These people lived under great hardship and poor living conditions in UK during their early days. They worked as general laborers in manufacturing industry and the earning were sent to develop their families and communities back in Kashmir. During the 70's and 80's their families joined them and this next generation took off in education & commerce. 90's saw a financial stability. During 2000 onwards we saw Pakistani/ Kashmiri people participating in local politics and taking positions of councilors, Mayors, Lords and MPs in the UK. Also some candidates went from UK to participate in Kashmir elections and take on similar positions there too.

Bearing in mind our history and now the current political climate, what can possibly be done to bring this nation of Jarrals back to 'A nation that leads rather than a nation that's led'. During the 2006 AJK elections, we have had four Jarral candidates standing for the legislative assembly which includes Prof. Mirza Afzal from Mirpur (PPP) - lost, Mirza Shafique Jarral from Burnala (MC) - won, Major (Rtd) Munsaf Dad Khan from Charhoi - won(MC). May Allah SWT guide them further in leading us forward in the political arena.
