Indian Position on Kashmir

Official Indian Position on Kashmir as explained in Indian Embassy website is as follows:

  • Kashmir is an integral part of India
      1) Accession of Jammu and Kashmir(J&K) to India is final and legal and cannot be disputed J&K is not a disputed territory.

  •   2)Sheikh Abdullah sought and endorsed the accession of Jammu and Kashmir to India

      3)POK: Pak should relinquish control of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. It is not Azad Kashmir.

      4)What happens in Kashmir is internal affair and international community has no business in it.

  • Elections are a substitute for plebiscite

      1) The will of the people does not need to be ascertained only through a plebiscite. Democratic elections are a recognised means of ascertaining the wishes of the people and the people of the State of J&K have repeatedly participated in such elections. People of Kashmir are largely happy with India.

  • All would be well in Kashmir but for cross-border terrorism sponsored by Pakistan.

      1)The problem of Kashmir today is one of terrorism sponsored by Pakistan. People are happy with India. What happens in the Valley is not a freedom struggle but a terrorist movement stoked by Pakistan. Hence if Pak were to stop cross-border terrorism, normalcy would return to the Valley.

  • Human Right Violations by the State are negligible.

      1)Sufficient judicial mechanisms are in place to investigate such allegations.

  • Conditional Dialogues:

      1) Any dialogues with Pak or Kashmiris will be conditioned on Kashmir being a part of India.
