The terrorist situation is so bad India has had to bring in almost 40,000 new troops, on top of the 500,000 already busy defending Kashmiris.

Luckily the terrorism has nearly been defeated

"liberation"

Is that what you call a nationalist Hindu government illegally annexing a Muslim-majority occupied section of Kashmir in order to ethnically cleanse it of its Muslim inhabitants?

Err not quite, arguably they should be an independent state.
Long and the short of it is that Kashmir is supposed to be an auto lupus region within India (Hong king might be a slightly better example in some ways) but what Mr Modi seems to be trying to incorporate it as a simple region thereby removing its unique style of government and then promptly diluting the Muslim majority with Hindu migrants - hence the chinese Tibet analogy

No

When the British gave independence to India and Pakistan in August 1947, the princely states that were not directly controlled by the British were given the option to accede to India, Pakistan or become independent.

The Maharaja of the Princely State of Jammu and Kashmir chose to remain independent on account of the ruler being Hindu (and therefore naturally pro-India), but the majority population being Muslim (and therefore theoretically pro-Pakistan).

Within weeks of J&K declaring that it would be independent of both India and Pakistan, it was Pakistani tribal militias and army personnel who invaded the independent Jammu and Kashmir and captured 1/3 of the territory - the western portion is today known as Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and the Northern Areas are known as Gilgit-Baltistan.

This is when the Maharaja of J&K approached India and asked for assistance to defend his State. The condition laid down was that India would assist in return for the Maharaja signing the Instrument of Accession to join India which was signed in October 1947.

Indian forces then stepped in to defend J&K with the result that about 2/3 of J&K is controlled by India

China itself annexed a portion of J&K (now known as Aksai Chin) and Pakistan ceded a small portion of J&K that it controlled (the Shaksgam Valley) to China as part of a deal.

The tragedy is, had Pakistani tribals and army personnel not invaded J&K, it could well have remained an independent country between India and Pakistan. At the time of partition, Indian leaders were not concerned with incorporating J&K into India on account of it being a Muslim majority State. It was only after the Pakistani invasion that the Maharaja was forced to strike a deal to join India. Therefore since the Instrument of Accession was signed with India, India claims the entire region though actually controls 2/3 of it

India doesn’t want to do that because it’s a majority Muslim region which obviously wants nothing to do with India.

Probably join with Pakistan or at least tell Delhi to **** off these days to be honest. As the above poster noted the relations used to be fairly cordial but in the [past few decades Delhis heavy handed approach to KAshmir has alienated much of the goodwill they once held towards India.
Effectively India have shot themselves in the foot in some ways and put themselves in an unpleasant cycle of violence.. they accuse seperatists of violence and crack down which in turn alienates more people who turn to violence and so on ad nauseum.

With that being said there isnt, in ones learned opinion on the matter, the slightest hope in hell India will ever even think of contemplating the notion of giving the Kashmiris a say in this. Not only do they have the large nationalist view that Kashmir is indian to deal with but it will be a cold day in hell when they give such a valuable win to Pakistan.

So with all things considered i very much doubt it will ever get better. The mixture of Pakistani terror and Indian nationalism really is a bad mix for the state.

Thank you, that’s a brilliant explanation, I was wondering where the claim China makes on some areas came into all this to, as mentioned by some recent news articles.

This is a shame, really, for all the people who live there. Am I correct in thinking Kashmir is majority Muslim? It would probably be better under Pakistani rule in any case, similar religion, culturally speaking etc.
Indeed, i mean that in of itself should technically be an issue as India (if memory serves) is the second largest Muslim state in the world but with Hindu nationalism on the rise they do tend to clash rather badly.
Potentially, i mean the Pakistanis would be thrilled but given what we know of Indias views on the matter it would seem to be pie on the sky.
to be honest it, as you said, is all a dreadful shame. Kashmir is one of the most beautiful areas on earth and used to be a tourist magnet but years of violence and quasi-martial law have done a good job of shoving a tanto into that.
