  • Description

    THE "LION OF KASHMIR", SHEIKH ABDULLAH ARRIVING IN RAWALPINDI FOR TALKS WITH PRESIDENT AYUB KHAN OF PAKISTAN.

    HIS VISIT IS PART OF THE KASHMIR LEADER'S BID TO WIN SUPPORT FOR THE INDEPENDENCE OF HIS COUNTRY FROM THE INDIAN UNION.

    THE VISIT CAME 3 DAYS BEFORE MR NEHRU'S DEATH. MR NEHRU WAS EXPECTED TO HAVE MET THE TWO LEADERS FOR TALKS ABOUT THE KASHMIR PROBLEM NEXT MONTH.

    THE SHEIKH, RECENTLY RELEASED BY INDIA FROM NEARLY ELEVEN YEARS PRISON FOR HIS ACTIVITIES FOR INDEPENDENCE, SAID THAT THE PRESIDENT FELT AS HE DID -- THAT THERE COULD BE NO FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN INDIA AND PAKISTAN UNLESS THE KASHMIR DISPUTE WAS RESOLVED. (SEE KASHMIR PROBLEM PROD. 5125/64 27 MAY).

    THE SHEIKH SAW MR NEHRU EARLIER THIS MONTH ABOUT THE DISPUTE. HE WEPT WHEN HE HEARD THE NEWS OF HIS DEATH AND SET OFF FOR DELHI TO ATTEND THE FUNERAL.
