Kashmir conflict The issue of territory is one factor that has lead to conflict between India and Pakistan It is one of the most intractable and long standing conflicts in the world The problem of Kashmir arose because maharaja hari singh was unable to makeup his mind to which dominion the state of Kashmir should accede to or whether to accede at all History When British India was given its independence India was supposed to be divided into two countriesie India and Pakistan all areas which have more than 70 Muslims were suppose to go Pakistan the rest would be India However the princely states would be left to decide on their own they could join India or Pakistan or remain independent But the local Kashmiris who did not want to be part of India started causing riots and agitations in Kashmir As a result the maharaja of Kashmir joined India and requested the assistance of the Indian army the Indian army arrived immediately the some day and Pakistan attacked the next day The maharaja of Kashmir had no right to call in the Indian army because the maharaja of Kashmir was not a heredity ruler He was merely a British appointee There had been no such position as the maharaja of Kashmir prior to British rule Finally the agreement was made that any areas more then 70 Muslims would go to Pakistan Kashmir has more than 90 Muslims and therefore clearly should have been part of Pakistan The state of Kashmir was dependent for all its imported supplies like salt sugar petrol and other necessities of life on their safe and continued tourists through areas that would form part of Pakistan the tourists transit traffic which was a major source of income and revenue could only come via Rawalpindi The only route available for the export of its valuable fruit was Jhelum river
