Post Independence

Post-independence of India and Pakistan from the British empire, the Poonch villagers started with an armed protest for the Maharaja Hari Singh to rule the city. With the Poonch uprisings, there was a tribe of Pashtun and Afridis which was in Pakistan but then Maharaja was completely against giving India or Pakistan the security of this independent state and thus has signed an Instrument of Accession to India which stated that the refugees to be accepted since Pakistani-backed tribesmen approached had already been to Srinagar. The Indian Government then airlifted the Indian Army to Srinagar and then protected the city from getting attacked by the tribesman.
