Redirect, disambiguation, and base name[edit]

I think Kashmir, the base name article, should remain (be restored to) the article on the Kashmir region, and an otheruses template can then point to the existing Kashmir (disambiguation) page for disambiguation. But if that is undesirable, then the existing disambiguation article should be moved to the base name; there shouldn't be two disambiguations, one at the base name and one as (disambiguation). -- JHunterJ 17:20, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Events section[edit]

When I first saw this page, I was surprised to find an "events" section that listed commemorative days, which are not in any sense "disambiguations" of the word Kashmir. Now that this section is getting constantly attacked by IP's, it seems best to delete the section. Can somebody explain why anybody thinks "Kashmir" means a Kashmir day of any kind?

State section[edit]

Some of the lines here breach MOS:DABENTRY, which says there should only be 1 blue link per line. I know this is a touchy subject, so is there any reason for this (given that the 3 of the other links are to a section of the Primary Topic listed at the top)?

Further to that, hhlf of the entries don't belong there. The Kashmir conflict is not known as just "Kashmir", and neither are Aksai Chin or the Trans-Karakoram Tract. – Uanfala (talk) 19:07, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
Kashmir, modeled originally on the Britannica page "Kashmir region," which has since changed to "Kashmir," does included Aksai Chin, and TKT. True, Aksai Chin and TKT are not known as "Kashmir," but "Kashmir" can refer to them. The "Kashmir Conflict," however, a verbal preference of the Indian government, a subterfuge to avoid the more common internationally used, "Kashmir dispute," does indeed need to go. It doesn't belong here. No comment on the page itself. Its lead is what I've read, and that seems quite balanced and NPOV. Fowler&fowler«Talk» 21:31, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
I have removed Kashmir conflict. Fowler&fowler«Talk» 21:34, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
Aksai Chin and TKT are not Kashmir, they're parts of Kashmir (under a certain definition) and so are subtopics of the main article. If it's known as "Kashmir" then it doesn't belong in the main body of the dab page. – Uanfala (talk) 23:07, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
But so are J&K, Azad Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan, all parts. Indeed, the belligerents think they are parts; otherwise, there would be no dispute. Fowler&fowler«Talk» 02:17, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
