This is a disputed territory under Indian occupation, but is claimed by Pakistan, the other part is آزاد جموں و کشمیر. India often makes hollow claims to the tune that Kashmir is an integral part of India. This argument, often put forward by the Indian leaders, is used to tell the world at large that they have no business meddling in India's internal policies. They claim that the so-called "Instrument of Accession" as purportedly signed by the ex-Maharajah of Kashmir, makes Kashmir an integral part of India. But by invading the princely states of Junagadh and Manavadar, whose rulers had acceded to Pakistan, and Hyderabad whose ruler had chosen to remain independent, and ensuring their accession to India by holding general plebiscites by force of arms there, India had itself invalidated the right of the rulers of princely states to decide their subjects' futures.
It is well accepted nowadays that even the existence of such an "Instrument" as signed by the ruler of Jammu & Kashmir is highly suspect. The fact that Maharajah was overthrown by his own people in a massive uprising, and that he had already fled from his capital, when he supposedly signed the "Instrument" to get the Indian "help", casts further doubts on the validity of the document5. As per international law, as is evident from the various UN resolutions, Kashmir is a disputed territory, occupied forcefully by India, and whose fate is pending an impartial plebiscite to be held under UN auspices. The Indian leaders who had initially taken the Kashmir dispute to the UN had publicly and repeatedly accepted the United Nations' positions and had promised to abide by it.
Hence it is quite obvious that India is illegally occupying the State of Jammu & Kashmir, in defiance to the International Law, and that it is an offender in the current conflict.
