Since the partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947, India and Pakistan have been at odds over the Muslim-majority region of Kashmir.
Kashmir is largely the most militarized area in the world. Media and humanitarian organizations estimated that just in the Indian Kashmir are dislocated more then one million men among military and paramilitary forces, basically one every ten civilians.
On the India-controlled side, some 80,000 people have died as a result of a long-running insurgency. India's army is regularly accused of human-rights abuses; Pakistan, in turn, supplies the insurgents with people and arms.
