The title of this article is an example of the fanatic tendency not to use uppercase (capital) letters. The title is an official designation for a specific thing and needs to be in title case.iFaqeer (Talk to me!) 06:57, May 23, 2005 (UTC)

Also, does someone want to make a page on the popular Indian movie Line of Control?

Fair use rationale for Image:Kargil.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Kargil.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Image copyright problem with Image:Kashmir-Accession-Document-a.jpg[edit]

The image Image:Kashmir-Accession-Document-a.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

The following images also have this problem:

"India took a historical beating by the hands of the Pakistani army." Misleading and uncited information.[edit]

Under the section of "Kashmir Wars : Indo-Pakistani war of 1965", information, "India took a historical beating by the hands of the Pakistani army.", is misleading. I request any senior editor to edit the following line according to neutral views. If citation is needed you might even refer to the main page of the "Indo-Pakistani War of 1965", which claims a neutral result of war. I would suggest the immediate removal of the line. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kursworld (talkcontribs) 07:36, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

It references the figures "50,000 to 2,50,000." The "2,50,000" should be formatted as 250,000. Oxherdn (talk) 13:52, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Line_of_Control

Mehranzaidi (talk) 11:41, 22 October 2014 (UTC) The landmines planted by the Army alongsides of the line have killed scores of innocent people and left thousands as disabled. Without compensation, these disabled persons in the Indian Kashmir are fighting hard for their survival.[7] During 2008 Kashmir unrest, the Hindu extremist groups and the supporters of Bharatiya Janata Party blocked the Srinagar-Jammu National highway (NH 1A). The only national highway which today connects Kashmir Valley to the rest of India remained closed for several days which put essential commodities on halt and resulted in widespread protest against the Indian control.[8][9][10] In response to the blockade, on 11 August 2008, under the leadership of Sheikh Abdul Aziz, 50,000 to 250,000 Kashmiri protesters attempted to cross the Line of Control to Muzaffarabad. The protesters were stopped at Uri which resulted in killing of fifteen people and hundreds injured when police and Indian paramilitary forces fired on protesters.[11][12][13] A slogan raised by the protesters was, Khooni lakir tod do aar paar jod do (Break down the blood-soaked Line of Control let Kashmir be united again).[14] Mehranzaidi (talk) 11:41, 22 October 2014 (UTC)mehran zaidiCite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page).

Some facts on this page are wrong. Please add within a week.

On 'Positions' section, it reads, "Pakistan still claims the whole of Kashmir as its own territory, including Indian-controlled Kashmir." Not true! It disputes India's control, but acknowledges its sovereignty over Jammu-Kashmir. It does not claim the Indian-controlled portion, except for Siachen. It should say, "Pakistan disputes Indian-controlled Kashmir, saying it should be peacefully transferred to Islamabad, but recognizes India's territorial sovereignty there." You can cite «http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/south_asia/2002/kashmir_flashpoint/default.stm».

Also, the next paragraph states, "…it claims the whole region, including Azad Kashmir territory, as its own." It should be: "…it claims the whole region, including Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, as its territory."

Thank you for helping me add the edits. 24.246.89.125 (talk) 01:21, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Editing restrictions[edit]

Copied from Talk:Kashmir conflict

I'm imposing the following restrictions on this article and any other articles connected with the India Pakistan conflict over Kashmir:

  • An immediate 1 RR restriction. Any attempt, even if made in good faith, to do more than one revert in a 24 hour period will lead to an immediate block.
  • A revert without discussion restriction. Any revert of any edit, however minor, that is done without an explanation on the talk page will lead to an immediate block.
  • A civility restriction. Any suggestion that any editor is not editing in good faith will lead to an immediate block.
  • An ethnicity claim restriction Any attempt to bring the purported or deduced or imagined ethnic or nationality identities of any users will lead to an immediate block. This includes an editor's own stated ethnic identity or nationality. Wikipedia uses reliable sources and the weighting of those sources to decide what to include, what not to include, and how the content should be stated in an article. Please stick to arguments based on those factors.
