Srinagar, May 13: Kashmir is now in the Guinness world book of records as the “largest militarized territorial dispute currently taking place on the planet.”
The Guinness world book of records uses the CIA world fact book to name Kashmir as the world’ ‘largest militarized territorial dispute’. On page 137 and the chapter “Wars” of the latest edition of Guinness book of records under the heading “Largest Militarized Territorial dispute”, it is written,
“According to the CIA fact book, the dispute between China, India and Pakistan for Kashmir region is the largest and most militarized dispute currently taking place on the planet- despite the massive earthquake that devastated the area in 2005, killing 80,000 people.
"The former Indian state has been fought over since the end of British rule of India and partition in 1947. India also refuses to accept Pakistan’s ceding of Kashmir lands to China in 1964, and recently claimed that China transferred nuclear weapons to Pakistan."
The Guinness World Records, is a reference book published annually from the UK, containing an internationally recognized collection of world records, both human achievements and the extremes of the natural world
