NEW DELHI (ANP)— The in
ability of the UN representative
in Kashmir, Sir Owen Dixon, to
bring India and Pakistan together
to implement the resolution of the
United Nations to conduct an im
partial plebiscite forced the is
sue back on the agenda of the
approaching session of the Securi
ty Council.
Departing for New York via
London, the Austrialian experessed
the hope that both parties will
agree very soon because the con
troversy threatens the peace not
only of the principal nations in
volved but also of the remaining
nations of the sub-continent. With
conditions as unstable as they are
in the Far East and South East
Asia, it is quite likely that Com
munists will exploit the difference
to their own advantage.
In the event this should happen
it will be disasterous for the demo
cratic cause in the eastern half of
the world. With Communist forces
already at work in India it would
not require much to set off arm
ed conflict and at this stage of
events neither Pakistan nor India
would derive any benefit from
such a catastrophe. In the interest
of world peace and the develop
ment of sound interrelated econ
omies, the two newly-born repub
lics will find it mutally advantage
ous to settle the matter at an early
date.
Kashmir, Th« Prize of India
Observers acquainted with the
history of the present struggle are
ofthe opinion that neither country
is anxious to part with this
picturesque section because of
economic reasons. For centuries
Kashmiris have been some of the
best craftsmen in the world and
produce articles that can be ex
ported to western nations.
The Kashmir Valley is one of
the most beautiful scenes in the
world and produces some of the
most delicious fruits available in
the East. Because of these impli
cations both nations might be pass
ively guilty of not implementing
the plebiscite resolution.
The population being prepon
derate^ Moslem, India might
think that in a plebiscite the Kash
miris will vote to join Pakistan
the nation of her mother religion.
On the other hand, Pakistan en
tertains fears that, since Kashmir
has become an integral part of
India, the latter might exert heavy
influence through various channels
to determine the outcome of the
voting.
In either case an element oi
truth might be found. This focus
ed against the unfortunate back
ground of Hindu-Moslem relations
in India for many years before
1947 will undoubtedly make it
incerasingly difficult to reach a
solution based on a local referen
dum.
Plebiscite Interpreted
Though the terms of the plebis
cite resolution are perfectly clear.
Pakistan contends that it should
be conducted without the assist
ance of the existing government in
Kashmir. This means that should
Pakistan be of the intention of
propagating her point of view a
mong the local population, fewer
impediments would be in the way.
Though the local government
would not be exepected to assume
uny primary responsibility, to im
plement Pakistan's point oi view
all portfolios and functions of
government would have to be
handed over to the UN representa
lve. Because the existing govern
ment was constituted legally, In
dia cannot reconcile herself to
i his interpretation.
On the other hand, i'ukision re
fuses to demilitarize all areas she
is already holding in Kashmir by
aggression. Unfortunately, the U
N sidestepped one of its major re
sponsibilities in the Kashmir mat
ter in failing to determine who
was the aggressor. India is not at
all happy about this because in the
Korean War the United States
pressed the UN to establish the
North Koreans as the aggressors.
Holding an imparital plebiscite
is rendered even more difficult in
view of the fact that Kashmir is
recognized as a part of India. This
was done only after Pakiston arm
ed forces overran their territory
without declaring wTar or for a
justified reason. Being a part
of the nation, India finds herself
in a vulnerable position so far as
world opinion is concerned.
Government leaders of Kashmir
have again and again declared
intention of remaining a part of
India because of their adherence
to the concept of a secular state.
Whether thisns'the genuine con
viction of the leaders or whether
they find such a stand convenient
for the moment is highly doubtful
since secularism is characteristic
of neither major group.
Hope Cannot be Abandoned
In spite of the present failure
the world still hopes that an ef
fective solution will be found. The
possibility of partitioning the dis
puted territory is not out of ques
tion though highly undesirable.
