Tensions are boiling over after India stripped Indian-controlled Kashmir of its near autonomous status. India’s decision is reigniting disputes with Pakistan. Both control parts of Kashmir, but each country claims the region in its entirety. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made gaining control over the region a central campaign.

It’s feared the dispute could drive the two nuclear powers toward war once again. As tensions over Kashmir escalate again, what do the parties involved actually want?
