Book synopsis/description:

The Kashmir Dispute has dominated India-Pakistan relations since they became independent in 1947. Kashmir was the prescient cause and/or the major theatre of operations in the wars and conflicts fought by India and Pakistan in 1947-48, 1965 and 1999. The centrality of Kashmir in India-Pakistan relations and the need for their search for normalizations to take cognizance of the Kashmir issue needs no further emphasis. Kashmir is also India's most enduring internal security problem, which has existed from the moment of its independence. Pakistan believes that Kashmir is its most important external security problem.

The difficulties in pursuing various solutions that have been advocated in the last six decades strengthen the case for making it permeable. In this manner, the sanctity of the border would not be violated, but making it irrelevant would provide a human face to their Kashmir policy without getting entrapped in controversial sovereignty issues. A further advantage in this population and their emotional needs to re-establish familial and Commercial linkages with the divided parts of the erstwhile princely Kashmir State.

Given the rigidities and political problems on both sides, idea of making the LoC irrelevant skirts these sensitive but seminal issues within India and Pakistan; hence both countries would find them agreeable.
