Kashmir is the Northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent. Kashmir valley is the biggest one in India. The valley is known to be the home of Sufism – miscellany of left Islamic and Hindu customs. On the west part of its border is Pakistan. Conflict between India and Pakistan of Kashmir began in August 1947. The specific geographic location and religious groups inside.Demarcating boundaries to create nations has been an onerous exercise that has always been replete with controversies.

Conflicts have been prevailing over it across the globe. This conflict has extended towards sea bodies as countries compete to control oil wells and other resources. The conflicts concerning North Korea and South Korea, the US and Mexico and Japan and China are some of the examples that have drawn international attention. The paper will however focus on issues related to the stalemate over Kashmir between India and Pakistan. Kashmir has made it a zone of collapse of interests.

This area is believed to be mainly inhabited by Muslims but Muslims, hinduists and Buddhists have nigh evenly separated regions. Being situated between India and Pakistan brought tough fate to Kashmir after the Indian subcontinent`s independence. This continuous conflict is known as Kashmir issue. This rivalry between the two countries evolved over the years to reach present days, where it is still a major problem in the Far East Region. During this time United Nations (UN) has tried to help solving this problem but the countries cannot reach a consensus.Pakistan’s Kashmir policy in the last decade has been reactionary, largely responding to India’s moves in the subcontinent.

This characteristic was observed during the violent protests following the killing of Kashmiri militant leader Burhan Wani in 2016 by Indian soldiers. Following Wani’s death, violent protests ramped up; 90 civilians lost their live and over 2,300 were injured. Showing solidarity with the militant leader, then-Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif called Burhan Wani a “martyr” and said July 19 will be observed in Pakistan as “Black Day” to express solidarity with the people of Kashmir.

The Indian government moved last week to revoke special status for Indian-controlled Kashmir, a long-contested region abutting Pakistan and China that constituted India’s only Muslim-majority state.The move will rein in some of the autonomy Kashmir previously enjoyed, and it has raised worries of fresh armed conflict in an area that has already suffered decades of violence. Those fears were heightened by India moving troops into the region ahead of the decision and shutting down Internet access after the announcement was made.

India was revoking a constitutional provision granting certain autonomous powers to Indian-controlled Kashmir, setting the stage for new clashes in the disputed region move followed a tense night during which Indian authorities put prominent politicians under house arrest in Srinagar, Kashmir’s capital, and cut off mobile and Internet services to the Himalayan region. Thousands of Indian troops were deployed to Kashmir before the announcement.

Amit Shah, India’s interior minister, told Parliament that the government would revoke Article 370, which gives Kashmir the right to make its own laws. The step also nullifies another provision that bars nonresidents from purchasing property in the state. Shah also announced that the state would be reorganized administratively, a move that would effectively limit the powers of a states government. This was being done “keeping in view the prevailing internal security situation fueled by cross-border terrorism,” .
