[Current Event: India] Jammu and Kashmir

Coming from 1947, the nation of India has gained its independence from a Britain rule leaving it already with political and regional divisions. In October 1947, the nation of India implemented a partition leaving it with East, West Pakistan and India. Till today the state of Jammu and Kashmir remain unstable due to the lack of Referendum on whether it is under a Pakistani region or a Hindu nation. Throughout the decades, several conflicts, ceasefires and UNSC resoltions have been submitted to resolve this prolonging issue. Three dominant wars have been established regardless of the minor conflicts and disputes, 1947-1949, 1965 and 1971. Furthermore, this prolonging issue remains undecided, coming from the line of control, to the Simla agreement.
