"Muzaffrabad, Pakistan" Muzaffarabad by pk_tours_2004

Muzaffarabad Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 60 photos

Muzaffrabad is the capital city of Azad Kashmir. We should take this time to seperate the differences between Azad Kashmir and Indian Occupied Kashmir. Azad Kashmir means Free Kashmir; it already has a capital city, a self-ruling government and a Prime Minister. On the otherside of the fence is Indian Occupied Kashmir or what I like to call "Hell in Paradise". There are so many horror stories of Kashmiri Muslims being tortured, raped and looted all the time by the Indian Armed Forces who in the IoK (Indian Occupied Kashmir) to make sure the people don't have a voice in seperation. It's a well known fact Kashmiris want independence and a state for themselves but the Indian Government and the Indian Armed Forces don't see that; a better statment would be they choose not to see it.

Enough politics; when I was in Azad Kashmir I was able to take a few pictures of the province. It's probably the most beautilful part of Pakistan and is home to the second tallest peak in the world, K2. It might be worth noting that whenever climbers want to climb K2 they go to the Government of Pakistan to ask permission which further strengthens the cause of the Kashmiri Indpendence.
