In the midst of a massive invasion of his state from tribesmen in the Northwest Frontier Province of Pakistan the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir importuned India for military assistance. In order to avoid international complications India asked the Maharaja to accede to the Indian Union. In accepting the subsequent accession offer by the Maharaja India stated that when law and order were restored in the State the question of accession would be referred to the people. This condition was stipulated in October 1947, but self-determination for the people of Kashmir has yet to be fulfilled. This paper is a study of the historical factors which lead to the dispute, and political factors which have made its solution particularly difficult.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
