If you think that it is alright for a country to let go of it economically
less attractive regions then why don't you also advocate giving away a piece
of Bihar, some deserts of Rajsthan and badlands of Kuchh in Gujrat?
Economy of Jammu & Kashmir deserves attention, and whether it is good or not
does matter, but not in deciding on whether or not you can let go of that
integral piece of your country!
Moreover, it is unwise to think that 40 years of conflict is going to end
simply by your giving away Jammu & Kashmir to Pakistan. In fact this was the
very basis upon which the whole of Pakistan got created, and look what
happened since!
The fact is, as soon as you think of handing over a piece of India to
Pakistan or whoever, the disintegration of India as you know it, will start,
and then this country of your will disappear from the map sooner then you
can imagine. You only need to pay attention to the statements of the Jihadis
who call every non-Muslim a Quafir, and that makes almost all of India a
land of sinners, and hence worthy of annihilation! I am sure you already
know ISI's links with BODOs and ASSAM terrorists and their not so secret
intentions to disintegrate India.
