Sardar Patel offered Kashmir to Pakistan: Prof. Saifuddin Soz

Former union minister Prof. Saifuddin Soz revealed that Sardar Patel had offered Kashmir to Pakistan. Terming Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assertion that ‘If Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel would have been the first PM of the country, entire Kashmir would have been ours’, as “contrary to facts”, Prof. Soz said “my forthcoming book ‘Kashmir; The Complete Story’ carries full details on how Sardar Patel consistently offered Kashmir to Pakistan, but Liaquat Ali Khan remains stubbornly obsessed with an imaginary idea of getting Hyderabad-Deccan which was neither connected by Rail nor Road with Pakistan.”

“Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Chaudhry Muhammad Ali and senior Muslim Leader and minister Sardar Shaukat Hayat Khan have lamented Liaquat Ali Khan’s attitude to this matter in their thought-provoking books,” Soz added.

Prof. Soz proposed to Prime Minister Modi to start a serious study on the history of India’s freedom struggle for his better understanding of Nehru and his relationship with Sardar Patel and Mahatma Gandhi.
