Kashmir Ppt


Published on

We respect views of all those wanting peace and prosperity for humanity entangled in these troubled times. We from the country known as the Cradle of the World Civilization appeal to all and sundry to also respect our views and culture instead of blasting off the mines and minds of innocent peoples.
Amidst all this, Pakistan wants India to "solve the Kashmir Issue", without addressing the core question - who drove away, threatened, killed the original residents of Kashmir the Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir? Where are they now? Who controls their property in Kashmir? Why are the Muslim majority in Kashmir increasingly demanding freedom from India when it has always been part of India... These are vital questions that needs answeres... and then there are practical reasons too, why Kashmir must stay with India
