Jammu Kashmir Peoples Party (JKPP) is a political party of the self-governing state, Azad Kashmir located in Pakistan administered Kashmir. The main center of politics of JKPP is Azad Kashmir (including Gilgit and Baltistan).

Founding[edit]

Jammu Kashmir Peoples Party was formed on 19 July 1990, after observing the changes in political situation of Azad Kashmir, by politicians of the same school of thought, under the supervision of the founder of Azad Kashmir, Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan. In 1947 he led the war of independence against Dogra rule to win independence. The purpose of JKPP's formation was to provide a platform to the people, through which they can struggle for independence and betterment of the society.

First convention[edit]

The first convention of Jammu Kashmir Peoples Party was held in Islamabad on 9 December 1992. Keeping the democratic principles in mind, the Central Council of 200 members elected the first president of the party. Since then, the party officially started its working.

2005 earthquake[edit]

For Pakistanis, the earthquake of October 8, 2005 became a symbol of sympathy and assistance to others in their misery and sorrow. The government agencies were unable to handle this disaster, which was too massive for any single government or agency to tackle alone. It was the participation of the people, en masse, which enabled the government and all its wings to bear the heavy burden. Jammu Kashmir Peoples Party, and other social, political and religious personalities and organisations contributed for earthquake victims.
