Year: 1947 to date
Parties in conflict
Technically speaking, Kashmir is a region sitting at the intersecting borders of Pakistan, India and Tibet in China. In 1947, the UK ended colonization of India, and Kashmir was given the freedom to choose to join India or Pakistan, or to claim independence. But with wars constantly going on in the region, it was later split between Pakistan, India, and China instead.
Kashmir is largely controlled by India now and faces serious religious discrimination and coercive control, Muslims living in the India controlled area are becoming extreme and anti-government, leading to increasingly violent conflicts within the Kashmir region. It is the longest-lasting conflict still going on in the history of the United Nations.
