Is organizing ICSSR sponsored Two days National Seminar (8-9th May 2022) on the theme “Independent India and Jammu Kashmir” Under Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav Concept Note In terms of Jammu and Kashmir, the struggle for freedom has been shown in a different context than the Indian nationalist movement. Little is written or said about the vast struggle launched by the leaders of Jammu and Kashmir right from the beginning of the mass movement in India. The programs launched by the leaders of J&K did not only include the masses from both Jammu and Kashmir but were also running simultaneously with the various mass programs of the National Struggle Movement. Historical research reveals that Jammu and Kashmir of the twentieth century have undeniable continuity with the rest of India during the period of the sociopolitical awakening of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The organized political elite of Jammu and Kashmir indulged in various popular organizations like the Dogra Sadar Sabha which included the members of each religion of the Jammu and Kashmir. The political awareness created by these organizations generated a large youth movement that participated in the Khilafat and Noncooperation movement. The nationalist leaders started the publication of nationalist literature in the form of fliers and newspapers bearing Nationalist slogans like ‘Vande Mataram’ etc which incurred the wrath as the British resident felt uncomfortable at the verbal and written expressions of nationalist tendency in a Princely State like Jammu and Kashmir. Maharaja Hari Singh as Chairman of the Chamber of Princes in the first round table conference in London advocated the complete freedom of India.
