Government of India’s letter to the Security Council. In its letter of 31 December, 1947, taking the Kashmir issue to the UN, the Government of India wrote to the Security Council:
” …. But in order to avoid any possible suggestion that India had utilised the State’s immediate peril for her own political advantage, the Government of India made it clear that once the soil of the State had been cleared of the invader and normal conditions restored, its people would be free to decide their future by the recognised democratic method of plebiscite or referendum which, in order to ensure complete impartiality, might be held under international auspices.”
