Kashmir Crisis: Strategic Options for Pakistan and Kashmir

    Maj Gen (r.) Sardar Muhammad Anwar Khan

The long-standing dispute of Jammu and Kashmir is, as old as Pakistan. Right from the beginning it has been a very emotive issue. It was born when the ruler of Jammu and Kashmir Maharaja Hari Singh decided to accede with India by negating the wish of majority to join Pakistan. It has been an irony that Pakistan came across the chances and is unable to capitalize on them.

In 1947 the people of Jammu and Kashmir fought but unfortunately there was no substantial support from Pakistan and it was one of the initial chance which Pakistan lost to gain Kashmir. When this matter went to United Nations Security Council, luckily UN resolution came in our favor.
