We as a nation will always regret missing two golden opportunities to take Kashmir, one in 1947/48 and the other in 1962. Both mainly due to the slow reaction of the top brass than.Today i will not focus on the details of operations conducted by the volunteers who took part in the freedom of Kashmir.
COMPOSITION OF THE VOLUNTEER FORCES

The volunteer Lashkars comprised mainly from.
1)22 Lashkars from similar no of tribes with a strength of 25000-30000 men.
2)AJK irregular forces led by Sardar Ibrahim with a strength of 6000 men.
3)Scots from different agencies mainly Kurrum and Gilgit 1500 men.
4)Retired army personnel and Muslim league guards 2000 men.
5)State soldiers of Swat,Dir and Chitral 3000 men.
6) Some volunteers from religious outfits 1000 men.
(The above numbers are approximately correct)

d)Miscellaneous Tribemen




e)Men from Swat state


f)Volunteer from Kurrum Militia



There are many more images of volunteers.

VICTORIES OF THE VOLUNTEER LASHKARS
What these brave men achieve in the initial days of the conflict was unprecedented. In the very first month they had reached the outskirts of Srinagar and had the Dogra forces surrounded.



Within a year they were near Leh, the capital of Ladakh.


The Royal Pakistan army could not join the War initially because of Field Marshall Auchinleck. The Army entered a year later in 1948, by that time it was a bit too late.
We are all praise for these brave men who endured a lot for Pakistan. They remained away from their homes for months,many embraced martyrdom and many got injured. We Pakistanis will always be grateful for their sacrifices for the motherland. Hazrat Allama Iqbals poetic phrase below truly depicts these brave men.:pakistan::pakistan::pakistan::pakistan:

There is another map as well, a little later in time, in which Azad troops had reached suburbs of Srinagar as well.

Jinnah won Pak with his secretary and a typewriter...

Jinnah won a part of Kashmir with the tribals....

Only if the present Muslim leadership had had a fraction of his Iman, Ihlas, Jesaret, Akl etc...

*Where were the Kashmiri folks themselves by the by? Read somewhere they were welcoming the Indian Mushrikin Forces!!! I am pretty sure it’s wrong
