By Lauryn Gregson, Crystal Vessalico, Anya Schmitt, & Ed Eccleston Kashmir Dispute The Nightmare of Kashmir
Begins http://www.learn360.com/ShowVideo.aspx?ID=347448 Who? The India and Pakistan agreed to each other for the possible solutions for the dispute over the Himalayan territory of Kashmir. What? Where Why? There has been much dispute in the area
of Kashmir. Mostly because many people in the
area do not want India to govern there. Instead
they prefer to be independent or be governed by Pakistan. Issue's and affects of India The Kashmir Dispute has changed the world’s history. Since the location of Kashmir is right between Pakistan and India, the countries have been fighting over Kashmir and haven't stopped. For the past 65 years, there has already been 3 wars. All of them have never declared a winner. This conflict is still continuing to this day. The reason why Pakistan and India are fighting for Kashmir is it’s not because of control, it’s because of religious differences. No matter how hard each country tried to get Kashmir to join their side, they never fell into someone else’s control. Kashmir wants to be an independent country. What happened in India as a result? The region is divided among the two countries which are India and Pakistan. Pakistan controls the northwest such as/northern areas and Azad Kashmir. India controls the central and southeren portion such as Jammu and Kashmir and even Ladakh. We later find out that China has come in between the Pakistan and India to try to get some part of Kashmir. China controls the northeastern portion such as Aksai Chin and the Trans-Karakoram. They all wanted Kashmir because it was a very wealthy place and lots of space. From this day on the three countries still try to strive for more control of Kashmir. We still don't know who has Kashmir territory today. When? How does this affect India and the world?

The Kashmir Dispute is a religious battle of boarders. So far, the wars have occurred during 1947 through 1949 and 1965 through 1971. To this very day, there is still violence. At least 800,000 Muslims have been killed and 200,000 Hindus died fighting for Kashmir. Because there is so much violence there has been a tremendous decrease of tourism. Kashmir turns out to be the most beautiful place on earth. The problem is, nobody wants to visit their because of terrorists and violence. Kashmir is a valley situated on the Jhelum River which is located between the Pir Panjal range and the main range of the Himalayas. Its is located in Asia. India had claimed a 14,500 square mile section of the Tibetan Plateau as part of the old state of Kashmir Allan, Nigel J. R. "Kashmir." World Geography and Culture Online. Facts On File, Inc.

True>. Kashmir was a state under British sovereignty until 1947. The Hindu maharaja tried to obtain a degree of independence for his land. This led to disputed territory between India and Pakistan. http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/middle_east_and_asia/kashmir_rel_2003.jpg Pakistan India Fact: This is the
Vaishno Devi
Temple The conflict in Kashmir dates in 1947. India later became a matter of dispute between the two countries, with India and Pakistan claiming ownership of Kashmir. After a quick war in 1947-48 between the two countries, Kashmir was divided between Pakistan and India territories. Agreed under supervision, "A line of Control" was put up in between the two countries. It is also known was a Crease fire line. The last conflict is that since Pakistan and India have been in so many wars the possibility of war between them two has become more frighting because they both are given their nuclear weapons. Around 1998 both Pakistan and India declared they were nuclear powers through numerous nuclear tests. The dispute over Kashmir could possibly have triggered a nuclear conflict.
