- ℹ️ Description
Jammu and Kashmir, on the border of India and Pakistan, is a long-disputed territory between the two countries. In 1947, the Indian subcontinent, previously under British rule, split into two separate and independent states: Pakistan, which has a Muslim majority and India, which has a Hindu majority. Kashmir initially chose to remain independent but its Hindu ruler acceded the territory to India and it has been fought over ever since. Pakistan and India both still claim control of the region.
