The Kashmir region has been in a state of conflict for decades. India’s claim that Kashmir is its territory is based on an Instrument of Accession signed by the Maharajah in order to obtain India’s military help against a popular insurgency. For this, Kashmir was granted special status under the Indian constitution Article 370. However, in 2019, the Hindu BJP government retracted the article, causing Kashmir to lose its autonomy. 

Now, the region has become one of the most heavily militarised states in the world with hundreds of thousands conflict-related deaths and displacement happening along the line of control between Jammu and Kashmir.

To date, Kashmir has never got the chance to practice their Right to Self Determination.
