This is the proposal I mentioned and spoke about in a International conference held by Istanbul university on June 29-30 , 2020 .
Below is a proposal by which we can break the status quo in favour of #Kashmiris and not against #Kashmiris which unfortunately has happened on 5th August 2019
Breaking the status quo in favour of Kashmiris
India has broken the status quo which was there from 1947 on 5 th August 2019 when they took away the 370 and 35 A articles of their own constitution which was giving a nominal autonomy although that had been diluted already , except that Kashmiris still enjoyed a guarantee on ownership of land and domicile reservation for Kashmiris which now is completely removed by change in laws . This has given rise to the fear and certainly a possibility of demographic change which is a fact of life in Palestine and will become a fact in Kashmir soon .
So how to change all this in favour of Kashmiris .
I suggest the following :
Being a person who has been connected with the economy of Indian administered Kashmir I had advocated from the day, I became President Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry in 2006 that the Indian Govt declare our side of Kashmir as a Free economic zone which converted into a demand for declaration for whole of Jammu & Kashmir as a FREE ECONOMIC ZONE when I became the President of the Joint Chamber of both sides of Kashmir ( JKJCCI) in which besides the Kashmir chamber we had the Jammu chamber as well as AJK chamber and I take the opportunity of this platform to advocate to the Govt of Pakistan to declare WHOLE OF AJK a FREE ECONOMIC ZONE and not specific areas as Special Economic Zone as presently done . With its natural connection with CPEC it will make a difference to whole AJK and at the same time give hope of thinking out of box the solution to KASHMIR by advocating the declaration of whole of J&K as a FREE ECONOMIC ZONE which will help the cause internationally as well and break the status quo .
The Pakistan Govt through its friends and countries like Saudia Arabia, UAE and USA who have good relations with India can push india for declaring their side also with the same status .
This model of mine is now further relevant by the action of the Chinese govt to safeguard the CPEC as everybody believes the recent incursions in Ladakh point to .
The region as well as the world can not afford the risk of nuclear war not only between India and Pakistan but now between China and India . This will be a win win situation for everyone particularly to the 65.46% of human population living in China (31.35%,1.42 billion ) , India (29.72% 1.35 billion ) Pakistan (4.39% .20 billion ) .
I have written papers on it on my blog Kashmir “ THE ULTIMATE OASIS” https://kashmirultimateoasis.wordpress.com/2017/01/08/kashmir-the-ultimate-oasis/ as long back as 2015 and once CPEC became operative wrote a document on the same impact of CPEC explaining the above concept https://kashmirultimateoasis.wordpress.com/2017/03/15/impact-of-china-pakistan-economic-corridor-on-kashmir/ CPEC .
