Hazrat Iqbal himself belonged to Kashmir, he was much worried on the slavery of Muslims of Kashmir. After the birth of Pakistan, we also faced very much difficult situation to survive. British rulers remained the status of Kashmir by planning with Hindus, which asserted tension between two countries. India manipulated this situation and crossed the international border in 1965.
