Why Homeland?

 
   
The State of Jammu and Kashmir

The Jammu and Kashmir State is a conglomeration of heterogeneous geographical regions inhabited by diverse but distinct ethnic, religious and linguistic people. Out of a total of nearly 84000 square miles of the State, the Valley of Kashmir accounts for about 3000 square miles. Nearly a third of the State was annexed by Pakistan during the invasion of 1947 after partition of the subcontinent. Ladakh, the largest segment of the State is thinly populated, mostly by the people of the Budhist faith, and the neighbouring Kargil by Muslims. The Jammu province has a predominant Hindu population with some of its districts evenly represented by both Hindu and Muslim communities. The Valley of Kashmir is predominantly Muslim with a small representation of Hindus and Sikhs. The Hindus of Kashmir Valley are essentially Kashmiri Pandits.
