The Line Of Control
Meanwhile The Line of Control divided Kashmir into two parts and closed the Jhelum valley route. The only entrance and exit of the Kashmir Valley from Pakistani Punjab. Meanwhile This territorial division, which to this day still exists, severed many villages and separated family members from each other. Despite this some families could see each other on both sides of the LOC in locations such as the Neelum river. Nevertheless they were not be able to meet. Women on Pakistan’s side on the LOC have been instrumental in certain locations at influencing terrorist infiltration and ceasefire violations. They have directly approached nearby Pakistani Army camps and insisted them to stop infiltration . This in turn reduces India’s cross LOC firing.
The Line of Control (LoC) is a military control line between the Indian and Pakistani. Meanwhile these are parts of the former princely state of line which does not constitute a legally recognized international boundary. Meanwhile it serves as the de facto border. They established it as part of the Simla Agreement at the end of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. Here the two nations agreed to rename the ceasefire line as “Line of Control” . They pledged to respect it without prejudice to their respective positions. Image credits: unsplash
