History of UKPNP FeaturedWritten by UKPNP HQ
United Kashmir Peoples National Party was founded on 10th April 1985. During these years the Party faced many ups and downs. It seems that in coming years some new trials and tests are in store for us to reach the destination. Our Party is struggling for higher ideals like national liberation, democratic set up, exploitation free and prosperous society in the former state of Jammu and Kashmir. These ideals demand lot of sacrifices. As such we are not afraid of such ordeals. With all the ordeals Party is determined to step forward and it has successfully advanced and organized since its inception.
To achieve the high ideals set forth practically, the Party has made intensive and close contacts with working class, poor peasants, women and students and people of all shades of opinion and social status. Besides Party is working at different fronts for its ideals. The Party is continuously struggling to organize the people of Jammu and Kashmir for their national liberation. But to strengthen the roots among general public and revolutionary sections, the revolutionary movement of our mother land must flourish from its soil. In a neo-imperialist society, the concept of socio-political and economic emancipation is not an easy task. In all parts of the state of Jammu and Kashmir the people are living a life of utter poverty, unemployment and backwardness. They have no political and democratic rights. Particularly in Gilgit and Baltistan that are integral part of the stat, the concept of election is still unknown. People there are still deprived of the right to rote. Occupant forces and their agents are still playing their foul play in these regions. The resource of the state are being exploited and utilized by the occupying forces. The traditional conservative parties of the state equally share this exploitation. These parties work against the national interest and for their own interest. They promote tribal sectarian and regional prejudices for their own political and economic gains and motives. They instigate and fire the sentiments of general public to keep them politically disintegrated and economically backward. United Kashmir Peoples National Party is striving hard to raise the political and ideological rationale of the people to shun orthodox ideas and accept democratic and revolutionary ideals. It is working to fight against all types of prejudices and narrow mindedness at all stages. Party will continue its struggle to promote democratic and plural approach among the people of the state. It will continue its struggle for unity, integrity, fraternity and friendship so that people of the state may achieve their higher deals in an organized form.
As the struggle of the people of Jammu and Kashmir for their national liberation is getting faster and faster, its impact in international community and particularly India and Pakistan is very positive. The deprived and oppressed nationalities of these countries are sympathetically supporting the national cause of Kashmiris. The people of India and Pakistan who believe in liberty, democracy and justice are openly favoring the national democratic rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir as whole and particularly in the areas under the administration of Pakistan. Due to ever increasing political and economic crisis in India and Pakistan, their national and class ridden society is worsening day by day. All these factors are favorable for the national liberation struggle of the people of Kashmir.
At international level, the conditions are also favoring for marginalized and oppressed nations. The concept of democracy and freedom is becoming common and comprehensive. The economic crises of capitalism are deepening every day. This system is declining. The markets are contracting. Trade restrictions against one another are being imposed. The contradictions of capitalist countries are widening. It will result in small wars leading to a great war among these countries. No revolutionary movement can succeed with out revolutionary ideology. Party believes that revolutionary ideology is not static or stagnant. It is also not like a religious faith. Neither is there any eternal theory or ideology to replace historical and social human changes. The scientific theory of proletariats (labor class) is conditioned with changing realities for human emancipation, and general acceptability. It is a science of continuous progress and growth. Our revolutionary movement can get impetus and force from our public soil and history. Therefore, the universality of our revolutionary ideology will be shaped by our own sound conditionalities.
The United Kashmir Peoples National Party (UKPNP) has full faith in our people. It is our considered opinion that duty to understand social changes and to promote social behavior rests only with workers, public lovers and pro-revolutionary forces. Slavery, hunger, paucity, exploitation and class struggle are not our destiny. Nor is there any heavenly bang for our deliverance. It is only workers and oppressed people who if organized can achieve this target. Our party declares its firm commitment to deliver Kashmiri people from all types of internal and external exploitation. The Party promises to organize its struggle on scientific lines and to guide public opinion to right directions. As a party of workers and oppressed people, United Kashmir People National Party firmly believers in public democracy and exploitation free classless society. It believes that socio-economic and political situation of our country demands us an extensive cooperation with all patriotic, pro-public, progressive and truly democratic forces for the success of national democratic and historical revolution. With out completion of national democratic revolution, true democracy, free society and economic growth can not be attained. Note that this revolution is not only in the benefit of general public, workers and lower sections of the society; it will also be of great value for middle classes of Kashmiris. Party must prepare workers, patriots, progressive forces, women and students to perform historical role in realization of the ideals set in its manifesto.
