Period of early Educational and PoliticalUprising
Fifty years ago, we were just toddlers….Fifty years ago, we were just playing with stones, trucksand dolls….Fifty years ago, we just tried to learn our ABCs…..Fifty years ago, we were just wondering for our breadand butter…….Before a recent decade, during the darkest nights, ourparents had to hide us in their chests in order to escapethe claws of fissiparous tendencies of nefarious designslooming over our heads…..Now, Bhalessa has grown up and the only passion inlives of the masses is to look for a sea change in theirlifestyle in hitherto heritage.Before I apt to go for a brief discussion on the life andachievements of the people who keep Bhalessa onDriver’s seat. I mention here that Bhalessa before 50years of slavery was ruled by people of outside regionsthereby we remained under agony, we remainedignorant of the rights and duties. No education, noleadership was the order of the day.Interestingly, some people started movements to bringchange in the lifestyle of the masses.I put in place the exemplary services rendered by thethen Director Education Ghulam Rasool Azad who owingto his social and Political movement- The cohesive socialorder seemed to be revealed. We are all taking fruits of the the main root of our terrain-who contributed richyor the educational advancement, economic developmentand in diverse fields of his activity.I mention the names of those who contributedimmensely for the popularization of Bhalessa’s socialpolitical and developmental convas were, Ghulam RasoolAzad, Munshi Mohd. Anwer, Munshi Ram Chand Parihar,Gahulam Nabi Rather, Master Anoroud Singh, Hari saran
 Jaildar, Habib ullah Malik, Prof. Umer Din, Abdul AzizBatt and Talib Bhalessi.Over time there seemed less political or socialawakening among the elites, the area was littleprogressed, there was no education rather primaryschooling to the people. People used to go toBhaderwah for their primary studies.The political staire was also lacking as peoplerepresented a low income strata and economy was poor.The people seemed out of such activism. Hari SaranZaildar of Batara was regarded as a chief Chowkidar of the hamlet. The first teacher was Anirud Singh of Khaljugasar who was educated from Bhaderwah.Some families over time migrated from Kashmir.The whole Chenab valley and Bhaderwah Jagir was ruledby Rana’s and Thakurs. The area of Bhalessa was a partof Bhaderwah Jagir and Bhaderwah was regarded as amain centre of decentralization.It is learnt from our elderly that they used to goBhaderwah for ration to feed them.Owing to the close proximity with Bhaderwah,people maintained healthy relations with Bhaderwah.However, many families in Kashmir have migratedfrom one part to another in search of habitation andlivelihood. One such family was the Batt family whichmigrated to the Chamba District of Himachal Pradeshwhile a few factions stayed in Bhalessa's Soti village.The family at Soti took up peasant work.Ghulam Rasool Azadwas born in the year 1916 to this peasant family.There were only two schools then in Bhalessa - thePrimary school Kilhotran and the Bhaderwah Amar Singhschool. Rasool's father Kh. Khazra Batt sent him to both.In 1935,Ghulam Rasool Azadpassed the graduateentrance examination from Jammu Centre. He graduatedin Mathematics. He did his post graduation from PunjabUniversity in 1943.Munshi Mohamed Anwer was also enrolled inBhaderwahGhulam Rasool Azad’s Kashmir Policy
The history of the state lacks absurdly the evidence of viewpoints made by majority of unsung heroes of thestate on the trouble torn Kashmir. Their Kashmir policy,handling the situation of communal disharmony overtime, the pages of history are absurdly lacking themention of such epitomes of peace who played acted asa catalyst for the cementing Hindu Muslim amity duringa course of time.Ghulam Rasool Azad was very sensitive over theissue on Kashmir. As a freedom fighter, he pleaded thecause of minority community and shouted for HinduMuslim relations. The fact reveals that he is not in thehistory owing to his belonging from improvised Jammuregion. Even sheikh sahib himself once that if Kashmirregion can produce leaders like Azad, like of Jammuregion, it may go a long way to help in achieving theslogan of Naya Kashmir.Azad opposed the prevalent Propaganda oheartedness disseminated by the political forces of thattime.Moreover his policy on Kashmir was quite clear thathe advocated that that the issue should not be put inisolation.Azad being a renowned journalist wrote in hisowned weekly “Dahrwhere he opposed the foreignimperialism and the atrocities and discrimination metedby the Muslim minority. He opined that Kashmir is acommodity discovered from where? Is it discovered fromAligarh to Jamsheedpur to Ranchi, Ahmedabad toKanpur or Jabulpur to Sagar or Nagpur, from Indore andsamba ?As per his analysis, the issue has been discoveredfrom the central departments and military, departmentof posts and Railways and Banks and has finallydiscovered here in Jammu and Kashmir where theMuslim minority is being harassed and there is of latediscrimination meted to them, Azad pointed in hisweekly “The Dehr”. He was sensitive over the centralgovernment’s faith towards the minority of Bihar, UP,Delhi, Bangal, Maharashtra, Gujrat and Orrisa andsuggested the centre for Justice with the community. Hewas of the opinion that be it the central government orthe stations of chauvinism, these be stopped andultimately the Kashmir issue will be stopped. However,such an ideology of Azad, was endorsed by the BJPleader Sh. L.K Advani on 21st of June 1990 in Calcutta
