Pakistan Occupied Kashmir: The Untold Story

Virendra Gupta (Editor) Alok Bansal (Editor)

'Pakistan Occupied Kashmir: the Untold Story' is a book about the territory of Jammu & Kashmir under Pakistani occupation.  The region has been split up into two administrative units: Gilgit-Baltistan and Mirpur-Muzaffarabad, officially termed by Pakistanis as the 'Northern Areas', and 'Azad Kashmir' respectively.  The media has constantly focused on the Kashmir Valley, while the POK has remained reglected.  Ignorance about the region borders on apathy.  Even the circumstances under which the territory was occupied and the manner in which it was annexed by Pakistan, has not so far been investigated by the scholars in requisite detail.

The book contains chapters by ten scholars who have been studying the events in this region for a number of years.  These scholarly chapters cover different facets of both the regions that constitute the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).  They trace the circumstances surrounding Pakistan's occupation of the territory, its current legal status, and the growing popular discontentment.
