wow.....i think Mod does not like nation vs nation thread,
but we can give it a try
i am not from either India or pakistan,
so i just make some sort of guess..
i dont think there will large scale war between these two nations in the recent....
as India has to focus on its building of economy,
as pakistan too, has loads of problems in home.....
and both nations have nukes....as their last resort..
i doubt any of them would risk of being nuked and provoke a large scale war to destroy one another

Well Lots of Questions here ...........
India cannot let go Kashmir under any circumstance no matter how bloody it gets ............ till date more than 60,000 people have been killed in this dispute
A line of Control (LOC) Divides them apart ...............Both India and Pakisna Clam the Whole Kashmir.
When Country Got Partationed................ The Indian subcontinent was partitioned into Hindu-dominated India and the newly created Muslim state of Pakistan.....India Choose to be a Secular Country rather than a Hindu Country ......... the Constiturion States that Government would not Discriminate on the basis of Religion , Caste , Creed and Sex. ..............Pakistan Disputes kashmir saying that the majority people living there are Muslim.............. Now if India Accepts the seperation of kashmir on the basis of religion it would go against the Secular principle ............ and worse , then other Fraction( religios Communities ) also might start asking for seperate home land as they are not hindus .

Q&A: Kashmir dispute

Both the countries have declared cease-fire in LOC region in 2003 and observing it up-till now and process of negotiations is under-discussion among there leaders. Although there are un-confirmed reports of cross-border violations but Indian side agrees that it is very much on the decline.
President Pervaiz Musharraf focuses on making a settlement on the Kashmir dispute that satisfies all the three parties involved (Pakistan, India and Kashmir Administration).
But possibility of Chinese intervention can be given attention.
Note that President Pervaiz Musharraf already banned the major Al-mujahedeen party and its co-ordinates that were involved in the Kashmirís proxy war type situation after 9/11 event and pressure from US government. And I personally had not seen any Mujahedeen support fund programs being practiced now in the cities like they used to be before 9/11 (so this confirms the presidentís claims).
Currently two major proposals are being discussed:
a) Declare LOC as permanent border
b) Give Independence to the disputed zone (might include Pakistani controlled region also)
For under-standing this dispute it is also important to note following things that date back to pre-partition stage:
The British rulers decided to partition the sub-continent on the basis of majority of population of any religion in a province, like a province with Muslims as majority would be acceded to Pakistan and the one with Hindu majority would be acceded to India.
The situation in Kashmir was that it had Muslims as majority but the provincial ruler was a Hindu and he decided to annex this region with India (without focusing on the British principle for the partition). He was then threatened by the Muslims there and migrated to Delhi.
On retaliation, India send its troops to Kashmir, while Pakistan army interfered from the western side and the war of 1948 took place, which ended in a stalemate with Kashmir territory divided among the two sides.
