Suspicious editing of individual[edit]

This IP address (131.183.0.122) is causing disruptive edits. Can someone stop this editor from this nationalistic POV push? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.188.16.122 (talk) 20:42, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Sir, I have noticed that the autosigned IP address (209.188.16.122) has engaged in disruptive edits on Pakistan-related pages. Please cease adding Hindi script to Pakistan-related articles. Thank you!Willard84 (talk) 01:11, 12 April 2012 (UTC)Willard84

Military-Civilian ratio[edit]

About 0.5 million Indian army troops are located inside the Valley proper which has a population of 2 million. This ratio of 25% makes Kashmir Valley one of the world's most militarised society on earth.

Please add this information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.202.89.247 (talkcontribs) 18 February 2013

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:43, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Freedom House[edit]

Should the section that deals with Freedom Houses' rating of Jammu and Kashmir as "partly free" really be followed by the comment that Pakistani controlled Azad Kashmir is rated "not free"? The information about Azad Kashmir is irrelevant and seems like someone is promoting a nationalist POV. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.57.94.65 (talk) 18:25, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Source?[edit]

The article currently says:

″India has control of 60% of the area of the former Princely State of Jammu and Kashmir (Jammu, Kashmir Valley, and Ladakh); Pakistan controls 30% of the region (Gilgit–Baltistan and Azad Kashmir). China occupied 10% (Aksai Chin) of the state in 1962.″

Do we have a reliable source that supports it? As fair as my knowledge goes, the percentage isn't as High given that India claims Aksai Chin (under Chinese control) as a part of Jammu and Kashmir. If there is no credible source that supports then I think it's better to remove the claim and not re-instate any such thing until we find a reliable source. Mr T(Talk?) (New thread?) 14:18, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Okay, I found one source that corroborates the claim and looks reliable.

Any comment would be highly appreciated. Mr T(Talk?) (New thread?) 14:46, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Map[edit]

89.240.237.161 would prefer to use File:Jammu and Kashmir in India (de-facto) (disputed hatched).svg instead of File:India Jammu and Kashmir locator map.svg. Even ignoring the POV issues for the moment, the latter is clearly superior: Firstly, it gives the districts within the state, and secondly, the Siachen Glacier is not part of the Indian state, for all I can tell. For these reasons I have reverted to the latter map. Huon (talk) 22:59, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Problematic numbers[edit]

I have reverted Lifelessboy's latest edits for a couple of reasons:

  1. It broke the grammar in the lead.
  2. The pre-1941 census data was not based on the given sources.
  3. The colums in the religious demographics table were changed for no good reason. Previously religions were sorted by number of adherents; there's no reason to deviate from that.
  4. The number formatting had become inconsistent even within that single table.
  5. The "Kashmiri man" image was removed for no good reason.

Thus the edit was not an improvement. Huon (talk) 17:30, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
