This Comment begins with an examination of the roots of the conflict: Kashmir's economy, geography, predominantly Moslem population and Hindu ruler. It will then look at the dispute over Kashmir's accession to India and obligations resulting from United Nations involvement in the dispute. This Comment will focus on the important role the policies and practices of India and Pakistan have played in the development of events, and the part these elements must play in arriving at a solution.
