He said the only solution to the existing crisis was to announce elections in Azad Kashmir so that the people could elect a leadership of their choice.   Sardar Ijaz said the temporary solution based on collective president and army would be treachery with the blood of 90 thousand martyrs adding that they would not compromise on the division of Kashmir.   AJK Chief said the challenge for them was not America rather their own leaders who take dictations from outside world   He feared that the colleges and universities of the country were taking away the new generation from their religion while the seminaries were producing the upholders of ideological boundaries of the country.   Sardar Ijaz Afzal announced one lakh rupees aid for the seminary and cash prizes for the students obtaining high positions in the education board of Azad Kashmir.
