"Simmering Kashmir", Jamal Qaiser, Sadaf Taimur, DC Publishing, ISBN 978-3947818112
For generations, the Kashmir conflict has not only preoccupied the people living there, but also world politics. A solution seems impossible, doesn't it? This book talks about the history of the subcontinent from the 16th century and the British invasion, the division of the subcontinent and the political games after the division. The book tries to shed some light on the connection between the British invasion and Hindu-Muslim segregation, followed by hatred, division of the region, the Kashmiri conflict and a lack of trust between two states. The authors point out what went wrong on both sides and give recommendations on what can be done to end this conflict.
The book is available at any bookshop, e.g. at Amazon
