Unformatted text preview: In 1947, Kashmir's population was 77 per cent Muslim and it shared a boundary with Pakistan. Hence, it was anticipated that the Maharaja would accede to Pakistan, when the British paramount ended on 14-15 August. When he hesitated to do this, the adjacent Muslims in newly created Pakistan along with many Pashtun began to enter his territory. The Maharaja, appealed to Mountbatten for assistance, and the Governor-General agreed that on the condition that the ruler accede to India. This poor placement of government of Kashmir has led to danger and discord for its people and the War on Terror has caused a paradox in Pakistan. Because of the anti-terror efforts there, they cannot favor terrorism in Kashmir and be opposed to it in Afghanistan. List of References 1. "Kashmir.
