The Line of Control is an artificial line. The Kashmiris on both sides  
want to live in peace. The strife in our part of Kashmir for last ten 
years has resulted only in bloodshed. The common person on the streets 
of Srinagar does not want to be with Pakistan. The 
infiltration/exfiltration on the LOC has made them aware of the life in 
POK. The better standard of living  and functionoing of democratic 
institutions in our  part of Kashmir  may perhaps be an encouragement to 
the POK residents to ask for unification of Kashmir.

Is the LOC the bone of contention between India and Pakistan? It is 
rather too simplistic a view to think that  if LOC becomes the 
International Boundary (IB), peace will return .

How will the ISI justify its presence across the length and breadth of 
India ? There have been scores of arrests of ISI agents of Indian origin 
and Pakistani nationals working for ISI from different parts of India. 
If the  objective is to create disturbance in different cities of India, 
LOC becomes a peripheral one.
