Maharaja appoints a grievance redressal committee, called as Galancy commission, to look into the grievances of Kashmiri people and make recommendations. An I. C. S. officer Sir B. J. Galancy, himself an Englishman, was its chairman. Kashmiri Muslims were represented by Mr. G. A. Ashai, Kashmiri Pandits by Pt. P. N. Bazaz, Jammu Muslims by Ch. Ghulam Abbaas and Jammu Hindus by Mr. Mr. Lok Nath Sharma on the commission.

Sheikh Mohammad. Abdullah in his presidential address proclaims that our struggle is not only for the rights of Muslims of the state but for the well being of every one living here. He said that our's is not a communal agenda.

(He realized his aim through Galacy Commission, Sher-i-Kashmir made all this happen)
