Settlement of Kashmir dispute is important for peace in Asia. Kashmir is a disputed territory between India and Pakistan as both countries have fought three major wars in 1947, 1965 and 1971 and two conflicts in 1984 and 1999. The main cause of all wars and conflicts is Kashmir dispute. Kashmir handed over to Gulab Singh on 16thMarch 1846 under Treaty of Amritsar by the East India Company.
