United Kashmir People's National Party,[1] or UKPNP, is a political party which advocates for an independent, united and socialist Kashmir. UKPNP envisages Kashmir as the United States of Kashmir, consisting of former states of Burushal, Dardistan, Boloristan, Ladakh, Purig, Kishtwar, Duggart, Poonch and Kashmir Valley, which would be achieved through a national democratic (non-violent) revolution. The party was founded on 10 April 1985. Currently, it is being led by Sardar Shaukat Ali Kashmiri as chairman.

In May 2017, during a conference held in Brussels, The United Kashmir People's National Party (UKPNP) held deliberations and came out with a statement that attempted to expose the Pakistani administration's attempts to convert Gilgit Baltistan as the fifth province of Pakistan.[2]
