'Pakistanis in greater understanding of democracy than Indians' shocker.

From Worldopinion.org:

"Suppose the majority of Kashmiris...want Kashmir to be an independent state. In that case, would you regard an independent Kashmir as desirable, acceptable, tolerable or unacceptable?"

India - 13%/24%/14% (51% positive), 35% unacceptable. And 14% could not express an opinion..

Pakistan - 21/32/13 (66% positive), 11% unacceptable. And 23% found the question just way too difficult.

Can't say I have especially strong views on Kashmir, but were I living in Kashmir, I would rather be ruled from New Delhi than entrust myself to the tender mercies of Islamabad.

Elsewhere, a rather foolish 35% of Pakistanis think that kicking off a war to annexe Kashmir is a great idea.

The opinion poll was about Kashmir being independent of both Pakistan and India though.

It is also worth remembering that China also occupies part of Kashmir, claimed by India.

Oddly - India is not quite so keen on going to war for that bit.

Indeed, and rather amusingly for the rest of us, India only discovered that the Chinese had moved into the Aksai Chin when they spotted the rather good road the Chinese had built.
