Kashmir has been a bone of contention between India and Pakistan since their partition over fifty nine years ago; and it has created an acrimonious atmosphere in the subcontinent, leading to several conventional war between the two arch-enemies and finally to their transformation into nuclear powers which has endangered the peace in South Asia. Although concerted efforts are on to narrow down the space of their differences and conflict, these are yet to bring the two contenders too near the edge of the table that is likely to promote their friendship and good neighbourliness. One should not draw too many inferences from the prevailing Indo-Pak atmospherics and confidence building measures. It would be grossly impertinent and too naive to identify the restarting of Srinagar Muzaffarabad bus service and opening of a few points on the line of control – to facilitate timely and hassle free relief to earthquake victims on other side of the divide – as the prelude to resolution of the problem. The two countries are unlikely to come out of their shells for the beautiful Valley of Kashmir is so deeply embedded in their consciousness that neither of them seems prepared to show any flexibility in its stated position on the issue.The sacrifices made by the Kashmiris over a period of sixteen years have not at all pricked this possessive consciousness about Kashmir, nor have these caught the Indo-Pak attention towards the genuine Kashmiri aspirations. Kashmir may be a territorial issue between India and Pakistan, but to the Kashmiris it is the restoration of their pride; their honour; their lost political dignity; their historical individuality and their hoary nationhood, which were successively compromised and sacrificed since 1586 A.D., by the local elite at the altar of political profit and shifting paradigms of social morality, that is the real issue.
