Do people in Azad Kashmir self identify as Kashmiris? I mean I know the whole J&K state is basically 5 areas - Jammu(Dogri people), AK(Pothohari? Pahari?), Gilgit-Baltistan, Kashmir and Ladakh. Given there are very few native kashmiris on that side of border, isn't there any movement or atleast some recognition of the fact by natives that it isn't a Kashmir proper region?
What the hell are you yapping about?

Dogri people are not natives, they are foreigners that migrated throughout the 1800s-1900s and conducted ethnic cleansing in the region for countless decades. In 1947 alone, over 300,000 Muslims from Jammu and Kashmir were forced into Pakistan by the Dogra regime while around 50,000-100,000 were exterminated.

People of Gilgit Baltistan do not consider themselves as Kashmiris and don't even want to associate themselves as being a part of the Kashmir dispute. They have been fighting for a long time for a full merger into Pakistan and being recognized as a province.

Absolutely and they go at great lengths to distinguish themselves from Kashmir, I say give them their recognition.Kudos

Gilgit Baltistan Scouts identify themselves with Gilgit Scouts which were raised in 1889. This force played a key role in fighting the war of liberation against Dogra Indian Forces in 1947-1948 and won independence for the people of Northern Areas (now Gilgit Baltistan).

This is a rare picture of the earliest Brushaski speaking settlers of Misgar, probably from Circa 1900 - 1910. Misgar is believed to be part of the ancient Silk route.

The Brushaski speaking population migrated from central Hunza to Misgar upper Hunza, on the orders of the Mir of Hunza about 170 years ago. Before that this region was inhabited a bone of contention between Kirghiz and Wakhi tribesmen. After settling in Misgar the emigrants practiced subsistence agriculture and also kept a check on intruders on the borders, hence defining the Mir’s territorial limits.

Later in 1891, Mir Safder Ali Khan of Hunza with his party fled to Chinese territory via Misgar as he could not defend Hunza against the British, in the war of 1891.
