A part of the former princely states of Kashmir and Jammu the region has been disputed by the regional powers ever since the 1940s while the current state is entirely a part of India the western and northern districts of the former princely states are part of Pakistan and the eastern Aksai chin region belongs to China.

Before the imminent Independence of India Jammu and Kashmir had a Muslim majority so naturally, Pakistan was expecting its manager to join their country but the main political power of the region was secular and allied to the Indian National Congress and India too was expecting Jammu and Kashmir to join them in light of this indecision rebellious citizens.

Pakistan invaded the states in 1947, and in response, Maharaja Hari Singh asked India for military assistance they received it but only if they will join India and the Instrument of Accession was signed.

As it always happens when political leaders can't resolve their issues it's the common men and women the ones that feel the very real repercussions due to these major conflicts. Jammu and Kashmir don't have a very good economy or infrastructure although some progress has been made over the years and the situation is improving however as long as the territorial disputes are not solved then accepted by everyone Jammu and Kashmir remains one of the most potentially dangerous places on earth another war would obviously be devastating but look for a moment at this map and see if you can spot a problem.

Don't know what I'm talking about well India Pakistan and China are all nuclear powers if just one of these countries would ever decide to make use of their nuclear arsenal Jammu and Kashmir would be leveled within hours such an action would of course have apocalyptic repercussions throughout the entire world so let's just all hope that these 3 will never do something so reckless.

Amazing facts on Jammu and Kashmir:

Cashmere is made from the processing of the hair of the camper here because goat that lives on the Tibetan highlands in the Himalayas and principally in Mongolia so why is it called cashmere if the material does not come from the Kashmir region simply because the processing of the precious wolf was first developed in the region of Kashmir as a result of the Silk Road the name of this region has does become the generic name of the fabric.

A large portion of the state is situated in a high elevation valley surrounded and divided by the great Himalayas with an average elevation of over 5000 meters because of Jammu and Kashmir's wide range of elevations its biogeography is incredibly diverse and it's a land of extremes while some regions our hearts and can experience temperatures of over 40°C and little rain others receive insane amounts of rainfall and the higher you go the colder it gets some high elevation areas can experience temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees.
