100% correct , nothing surprising
Indians should understand that "india has occupied part of pakistani state called Jammu and kashmir."it's not internal matter of india ,it's internal matter of pakistan and it's the responsibility of pakistan to take stand for its people and the land belong to them.indians should agree on plebscite in whole Jammu and Kashmir just like pakistan has agreed and solve this issue.indians should stop enjoying and celebrating the deaths of innocent and armless kashmiris.enough is enough.
@yaqut khan OK ,I agree with my Pakistani brothers, We need to sort this out, but their is an obstacle, some part of Kashmir is with China, please can we get it back ,So that plebiscite conditions are satisfied first.
Pakistanis should also understand that some people in Srinagar and adjoining areas are throwing stones and demonstrating doesnot make all of Jammu and kashmir
got 7 out of 8 and lo and behold the one I got wrong was '' which country raised the Kashmir issue in the UN security Council in 1948 & I selected Pakistan but it turned out to be our very dear neighboring country India. I wonder why are they so allergic now when reminded about the UN security council resolutions?
@yaqut khan You know there is questions..Which country approached UN first with Kashmir Dispute.Answer is INDIA.So who is the Culprit Its Pakistan.
out of 40 M people of jammu and kashmir, separatist leaders belong to the area where population is just 2M. other 38M people are proudly associating themselves with india.
@RAJESH CHAWLA culprit is the one who then turned eyes away when matter came to plebiscite. check facts or as ur your govt to do plebscite, why shy away
@Asif Get your facts straight. Occupied J&K population is 12 million and the majority of them reside in the Kashmir Valley which has a population of 6,9 million.
@Asif out of over 60 years of resistance, kashmiris uphold the pakistani flag everywhere, and indian 7 lakh indian army is not eating rice in kashmir, ofcourse they are there for suppression. ask your govt wh ythe army there if the majority is with india
@ahmed indians shud understand that 7 lakh army paramilitary personnel in just kashmir alone are not for ice skating, but for suppression. And pakistani flag raising in kashmir is there since beginning. This is not the first for india, its happening with 23 other separatist movements.
@yaqut khan Please read the UNSC resolution 47 before discussing kashmir, it seems that you have no information regarding the issue
Congratulations Dawn, for a quiz based purely on indisputable facts. Before I took the quiz I thought it would be objective with a Pak point of view.
@Z Khan You go through the resolution , will understand were Pakistan stands
@Asif and Ahmad. Go get ur correct figures. I hv first hand knowledge being son of the land. And i tell you that you are completely wrong.
@RAJESH CHAWLA you are so stupid..india approached and now denying that approach while pakistan want to solve the issue with that indian approach.
@ahmed the population of valley accounts for 70% of the population of whole j&k state and they are totally against indian occupation.
@yaqut khan exactly
@ahmed let's leave Jammu as it's Hindu majority Part. It's about Kashmir.
Hardly anyone was harmed in Jammu. But thousands are being killed by Indian occupational forces in kashmir
@Asif you're wrong
My opinion under such circumstances regarding to Kashmir issue is that if we assume Jinnah and Ghandhi are now both are alive then firstly both step down from stance that made our politicians and cash on every political compain,that is "Kashmir hmari Shahrag hai"and"Kashmir Bharat ka Atot Angh hai" Then both are set on table talk and find the solution of Kashmir in such away both nations find way out from this hell.seriously !
How to Make the Indians understand. What if they don't agree. what if enough is not enough. Do u have solution ?
neither Pakistan nor India or kashmiris is correct in facts.
If as Pakistanis say- India is wrong then whole world would have been against us.
Look at China ! even after being a big power got isolated in south china sea issue !
Kargil was not a war but one of 3 border wars, 1- Rann of Kutch, 2-Siachen, 3-Kargil. And 3 major wars all directly related to kashmir. 1947, 1965, 1971. Even East Pakistan war was to divert the Kashmir isdue.
@concerned - How to make Pakistanis understand ? Do you have a solution that satisfies both the countries? It cannot be to the satisfaction of only one country.; and I mean both the countries India and Pakistan.
@Syed Usama Ali Shah - Dream come true for both countries eh ? Wow. If this was so simple to implement then it would not have been pending for almost 69 years.
@tamil forget Chinese, let's sort out what we both have. Lives are being lost. Glad to see a fellow countryman take right path as we Tamils do of suggesting Plebiscite. Our voices are growing for resolution and peace.
@sarosh Lets have a plebiscite then
Check your facts. It is pakistan who was not ready for the plebiscite. other wise they would have complied with the pre-conditions for it.
Surprised to see Pakistanis know so little about Kashmir...
Solution to Kashmir problem:
India should Lease Kashmir for 100 years to Pakistan.
We don't want war, we don't want bloodshed, we want only peace.
@shazain really we can not keep what we have
@shazain consider a solution here
Let India and Pakistan forget Kashmir for 50 years and focus on employment and prosperity and achieve 100 percent literacy and less than 5 percent employment incl Kashmir. Once the same is achieved including in Kashmir open the borders or do a plebiscite whatever kasmiri demand
@shazain but Kashmir is not India's to lease. Under UN, it is pending plebiscite.
Can we have a quiz on Baluchistan next?
@Arvind read it, next step, india removes its forces. Pakistan has fulfilled all its committments. Read again , not what you were taught wrongly in school.
@john pakistan has complied with its part, india has not done even one.
Firstly, I don't understand why both countries don't resolve this issue via referendum.
Secondly why is still Gilgit-Baltistan disputed? and if it is, then why don't they raise issue of GB along with Kashmir? People of this region are still treated like 3rd class citizens, they can't even vote for the country they are living in why?
India must abide by UNSC resolution of holding plebiscite in Kashmir. Stop human right violation in Kashmir.
An Indian knows 100% on Kashmir :)
I got one wrong. I thought the Kargil episode was suppose to be a prelude to the war for Kashmir. So indirectly that should be considered as war over Kashmir.
@Asif I bet your reference is none other than a dream you had at some point. Factually, Indian Occupied Kashmir is about 12.5 million people out of which approximately 70% are Muslims. Check your facts from different sources.
@ahmed but brutal killings since 1931 and after indian occupation amount to nearly 100,000 innocent civilians lives,it does make a lot of jammu & kashmir.Genocide by the Indian forces of kashmiri people must be held accountable and serious concerted efforts by both sides should be made to take Valley out of misery,regardless wheater they are Pakistani or indian,they must atleast be considered human.
@yaqut , no one is enjoying . it is inevitable situation created by you people .
Can we all stop fighting for this pitiful issue!
Yes it's very pitiful!
I don't think this is worth all those thousands of lives, of Army personels as well as civilians, we all in the sub-continent have lost till this very day.
In my opinion
Jis k pass jitna hai rakh lay(Kashmir)!
First let all kashmiri pandits return to Kashmir, give them their land. Then talk about holding plebscite. If some people in Indian Kashmir want to go to Pakistan, they should be immediately deported to Pakistan. What economic development India can bring in Kashmir, Pakistanis can only dream of. It will only become another terrorist haven like the the Swat valley.
@Realitycheck how do you come to that conclusion.? An anonymous poll with no data collection on demographics of the people who take part in the poll is as impartial as it can get (except for the choice of questions)
Firstly Kashmir does not have 7 lakh Indian troops. India's crack combat divisions are all based on the north East. Secondly non of the martial divisions such as Sikh, Gurkha and Rajputs are located anywhere near Kashmir. Even India's mountain divisions are not located in Kashmir.
@Yaqut Khan Please read the UN resolution. It calls for pakistan to vacate its troop and citizens in occupied Kashmir to enable a plebscite. Pakistan has not complied to this requirement till date. Update your facts before commenting on the subject.
I do not think there will be any transfer of territory from either side. All these arguments are useless. The violence from any side is regrettable. Very hard for any country to compromise territorial integrity due to this type of unrest. There are many many examples with only rare exceptions.
100%. No body knows better on Kashmir than people of Pakistan
UN resolution has only two options, joining India or pakistan. so all the azadi lovers on both sides of kashmir should consider this fact before calling for enforcement of UN resolution.
Thank you.Yes my knowledge is exceptional because I am a native of Kashmir.
Kashmir is not a part of Pakistan or India it is a disputed area. According to rules its responsibility of the Pakistan,India and whole world to give chance to the people of Kashmir then they decide what they want.

Thank you Dawn...for bringing this to test the knowledge...i got a score of 75%...
Keep it up...
Dawn is a highly respected news paper......I am aregular reader of Dawn for it's impartial views and excellent articles...
@RAJESH CHAWLA so whichever country goes to UN first wins is the rightful claimer what a stupid thing to say
@Asif If so, than why india is reluctant to hold plebiscite under UN.....
@ahmed ...It happens every country. It is not a new one for any one. So please do not excite kashmiris'.
@Asif ..Good to read you dear. Wrong is always wrong.
@Safwan ..Please read wikipedia for J&K and their history and geography... and understand facts first
@ahmed If these are only some people then what makes you and your govt not to held plebiscite in Kashmir and let the people of J&K to decide. Only then you would know where you stand.
Mr actually the problem is not about pakistan or India.Its about kashmir.We should have to think beyond it as we don't know you and nor the both nations about the issued faced by the kashmiris.
So the thing is we as human beings should think about it and should do something
@yaqut khan first get some food,education people, just comapre the growth curve of IND vs PAK, sleep peacefully, then think of Kashmir
