Why Are Pakistan And India Fighting Over Kashmir?

Why Are Pakistan And India Fighting Over Kashmir?


The Kashmir conflict is an ongoing territorial
dispute between India and Pakistan. According to Pakistan’s 2010 statement to the UN,
it’s the oldest unresolved international conflict still on the UN’s agenda. The conflict
is often attributed directly to the region’s backlash against British colonialism. But
is that the whole story? What is the Kashmir conflict really about? Well first of all, when we say Kashmir, we
mean the region that is currently occupied by both Pakistan and India. Historically,
the region has been home to a number of Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and other cultures,
which have been in conflict for hundreds of years. In 1846, Kashmir was claimed by the former
British Empire as a princely state in their Indian Empire. The population was predominantly
Muslim, but the ruler, set up by the British, was Hindu. This difference in religions caused conflict
in Kashmir, especially after World War 2. In 1947, Britain gave its Indian colonies
independence, and states around Kashmir joined either Pakistan or India. Because of the Muslim
majority in Kashmir, most wanted to join the predominantly Muslim Pakistan. However, Kashmir’s
Hindu ruler wished the state to remain neutral. Not long after independence, Pakistan invaded
Kashmir. This caused Hari Singh (Harry Sing), Kashmir’s ruler, to ask India for military
help. He signed the “Instrument of Accession”, which made Kashmir officially a part of India,
with some autonomous privileges. From there, India sent in military forces to combat Pakistani
fighters, culminating in the first Indo-Pakistani War of 1947, also known as the first Kashmir
war. In 1965 and 1971, two more Indo-Pakistani
wars broke out with thousands killed. Although territory was originally a key reason for
fighting, human rights abuses on both sides became a larger reason for hostilities between
both nations. You can hear more about “Why India and Pakistan Hate Each Other” in Tara’s
video. After several ceasefire agreements, the political boundaries of Pakistan and India
are still considered “disputed”, but both nations control about one half of Kashmir. The whole Indian subcontinent is teeming with
unique peoples and culture. Check out this amazing story of a small village south of
New Delhi that has such a long history of defending itself, it’s become legendary.

  1. India n Pakistan fight with each other for claiming Kashmir rbut they don't know what Kashmiris want. They don't want India or Pakistan they want freedom. They want there own view of identification.

  4. Pakistan already has already lost too much.
    1)*Hyderabad was taken by India even though it's ruler was Muslim and wanted to join Pakistan*
    2)*Junagadh was also taken by India even though it also wanted to join Pakistan* Both had Muslim Majority Population.
    And now India wants Kashmir as well even after they took Junagadh and Hyderabad who wanted to join Pakistan initially, how is that fair?!

  5. More than 100 innocent Kashmiris have been killed in IOK this year. Why don't you highlight such things? Why don't you compare both the sides of Kashmir and access which country has safeguarded the rights and security of Kashmiris? Every single day, dozens of Kashmiris are killed in Indian side and no one speaks. The reason behind is that all of you are a single team! More than 90% world media is owned by 6 Isreali companies and India-Isreal-USA Trio is the scourge on this Earth! You will never show the arbitrary use of weapons by Indian Army in Kashmir but you can't suppress the voice of innocent Kashmiris!!

  7. Kashmir ? Pakistan lost East Pakistan (Bangladesh) in 1971, soon Balochistan will be an Independent country too which Pakistan army occupied in 1948.
    Sindh will be an Independent country too. Pashtun people also never want Pakistan army domination. They want either independent Pashtunistan or wanna join with Afghanistan..
    Pakistan forget Kashmir save these territories if you can.

  11. God so much hate. Let Kashmir be where it is now. (No hate but fact) Pak PM said that pak doesn't need Kashmir it can't even look after its own provinces. And ofc India is a poor country and we can barely look after ourselves so wars don't help the cause. Let's not fight and let Kashmir grow and prosper without anymore wars.

  24. Well I fear that all non Muslims in Kashmir would be killed or kicked out if Pakistan takes Kashmir. They also never admit that they committed a genocide in Bangladesh.
    Edit : I don't mean to offend anyone but people will get offended easily. Just wish that Pakistan and India end this fighting.

    More martydomes?
    Solution is simple if it is followed.
    Democracy…
    Voting should b done in jammu kashmir,whosoever wants to go to pakistan.they should b allowed and those who want to stay in india they can.
    According to no. Of people,land should also b divided.

  32. This is a Bs Wikipedia search. Firstly Kashmiris want independence. And also the issue is more geographical. It was given to both. Indian textbooks have been teaching that it was always part of India post partition. Which is again false. Bias BS. It was again majority Muslims where in India Muslims are still being killed. So kindly do a little more research. The human rights violation is done by India and Pakistan has been willing to discuss its independence. But then again we see the power of ill researched spreading of news. Nothing new here

  39. I am from Pakistan
    All I want is stop killing
    And war

    Just 30 % of people want kashmir

    30 % also include extremists mind set
    Like some pathan
    They are never afraid of death
    They say one day we all have to
    Die
    So what , if we die today and some religious extremist like
    Labaik (arrested by government before 2 months Or 3)
    Jaish ( arrested in last week and taken in control)

    All I want is peace
    Love everywhere

    Solution is that Kashmir will remain with India
    With taking guarantee the rights of Muslims and happy life

    I hate extremist maybe of any religion

    There should be only love

    But in Hindu there are also some bad people

    You can't say that there is no bad in Hinduism

    Few days ago i watch a video in which a Hindu extremist had tried to force a Muslim to say

    Jai shi*I r*m (i can't write full )

    And beaten him badly

    I just want to see love and peace everywhere
    India should also control extremists

  40. British never gave independence to india they gave independence to all princely states and Pakistan. British never wanted to see india united. But after many civil wars and military wars when india did unite then British prime minister Churchill said that this country could not exist for long because these inferior people can't govern this country.

  45. Wow, the amount of hate people have for Pakistani's is unbelievable. Like yeah we get it, pakistan invaded kashmir but for their own reasons. A huge number of muslims are being killed right now, not just hindus. You think we're just gonna sit back and let that happen? no one ever speaks about muslims being killed do they? Most people in the comment section are just like "oh, pakistan are muslims? Muslims bad, India is good cause India is cool" without know any of the history of Kashmir, both sides are struggling, as a British pakistani we prayed for kashmir at our local mosque, and not just for the muslims, but for everyone that's affected by the conflict as well. We are always being put out of context and portrayed as the bad guys, and I'm actually getting tired of it fam.
