     Question Forum : Conflict In Kashmir   Date Posted:  10 -January - 2002

 

 

 

What are the exact details behind the conflict in Kashmir and how can it be resolved? I understand that Britain played a leading role in creating this mess, how did Britain contribute to this problem and why isn't it doing more to resolve the Issue. 

Kashmir is one of the many examples that UN resolutions aren't worth the paper that they are written on and are manipulated at will by those who hold real power. The Security Council repeatedly stated that: 

"the final disposition of the State of Jammu and Kashmir will be made in accordance with the will of the people expressed through the democratic method of a free and impartial plebiscite conducted under the auspices of the United Nations". 

Knowing well that after the partition of India and Pakistan the, predominantly Muslim people, of Kashmir would choose to either join with Pakistan or become an independent Muslim state, Britain continually used its influence in the region and on the world scene to prevent such a plebiscite from being held, and de facto Kashmir was portrayed as if it was Indian territory made unsafe by Islamic terrorists. The scenario is comparable to Palestine, where the Palestinians are made out to be the culprits and the apartheid Zionist state of Israel is passed off as a democracy.
