An unconventional take on the Kashmir issue…
This book focuses on the ‘Kashmir knot’ and argues that the issue was an inevitable result of Britain’s ruthless policies to satisfy its political, defence and strategic interests in the Indian subcontinent. It goes on to prove that the problem was aggravated not only by India’s habitual bungling and the inadequacies of solutions often proposed to resolve it but also by the cynical attitude of the super powers as well as Pakistan’s sustained efforts.
To unravel the Kashmir knot it is imperative to first depoliticize the issue and take recourse in legal analysis. This is what the book does with the help of comprehensive analysis of court rulings, UN papers, political observer reports and international law.
