    According to this wikipedia article here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quds_Force

    And this article here: http://terrorism.about.com/od/iran/a/IRGC.htm

    Apart from some ayatollah rhetoric, I always thought that Iran was subtly pro-India or at best neutral in the K conflict...what do you believe Iranian involvement in Kashmir is?

    Nothing,...they can't even control Sistan-baluchistan. Its like their claim that IIRN ships were going on first atlantic patrol. Mostly hot air.

    Sir, entire Srinagar was closed, when Ruhollah Khomeini died (June 1989).

    And on that day, I was there in Srinagar as a tourist.

    Yes he was respected but they have very little clout.

    Even the Shah/Savak used to cover Kashmir. In fact if you spoke to relevant Iranian diplomats / Intel officers you will find them quite well informed on happenings in the valley.

    Yes. The shah's Iran was part of CENTO with Pak and US block hence they also sent Pak fighters in 1965 and 1971. The Islamic revolution changed their pro-pak pro-US stance.

    Since, the "Kashmir" i.e. the then princely state of Kashmir has a significant number of Shia especially in GB and Kargil, Iran has plenty interest in Kashmir.

    But watching the Shias in Pak getting slaughtered like pigs, I don't think they are on the same page as Porkis.

    I doubt this was connected with Baghdad Pact/CENTO/RCD. They have been and still remain interested in J&K affairs. But I really cannot comment why except that J&K rules Indo-Pak ties.

    Hi Guys,

    Here's how baseless Pakistan's claim over Kashmir is. I'd like you comments and opinions on this.

    goo.gl/rohA72

    It discusses the UN Resolution that practically very Pakistani points, but none seem to have read.

    I've got a PDF of the resolution copy if any of you want to read it. Drop me a mail and I'll send it to you hybridin [at] gmail.com.
