Re-invigorating the 'maloomaat' concept via SMS

In light of the greater responsiveness of SMS in formulating public opinion in AJK (Azad Jammu Kashmir - also referred to as P-A-K Pakistani-administered Kashmir or P-O-K Pakistani Occupied Kashmir), I've decided to put up my SMS interaction online (though I won't be mentioning names - to protect the public's privacy).

Please also refer to my blog post: 'Un-freezing public opinion in AJK' at:


If AJK decides to adopt it's own currency - in the interim while it establishes it's own central bank - which of the following currencies should it use?
Swiss Franc, Chinese Yuan or British Pound?

Agar AJK apna sikha apnaaney ka faisla karta hay, to aboori tor par - jab tak hamaara markazi khazana nahee qa-im hota, in me se kis sikhey ko istimaal karna chahiye?
Swiss Franc, Chinese Yuan ya British Pound?

Note: The amount of people polled will remain constant at 250 until further notice.


Swiss Franc - 1

Chinese Yuan - 7

British Pound - 5

none - 2
