Can Kashmir be blamed for the continued stand-off between the two countries on every other issue?

Kashmir is not the only issue even though it appears to be so. There is a strong Kashmir lobby in Pakistan's Punjab and it suits our politicians too - both want to continue with the siege mentality. But there are many other issues like Siachen and Sir Creek. As it has been discovered that Sir Creek has large reserves of gas, it has every potential to undermine the importance of Kashmir between the two nations. Besides, there is the more serious issue of water sharing between India and Pakistan.Answered by Ataur Rahman, 22 Nov '12 03:49 pm
