Hi I am new to the Forum. I used to be in Bharat Rakshak Forums many years back. I was not born in India but i do have a strong interest in the land of my ancestors. I was reading about the history and geographic of the state of Jammu & Kashmir and i learned that the State has 3 divisions. Jammu Division = Hindu majority of 60 % to 65 % and Muslims are around 30 %. Ladakh Division = 50 % Buddhist, 46 % Shia Muslims others 3 % Kashmir Valley = 95 % Muslim, 4 % to 5 % Hindu. Looking at the Demographic stats and the fact that almost all political violence originates from the Kashmir Valley, why can't India make Ladakh and Jammu their own states and let the people of Kashmir Valley decide their fate. Let them choose Independence or join up with Pakistan. If you look at the map of Jammu & Kashmir. Kashmir Valley is actually a small part of the State.
