looking at my atlas, looks like 1 in 3 of the main rivers is in kashmir, not one in 4/5. mebe thats what it said. still a large proportion esp if water is in short supply. but the article was poo pooing the emphasis on water, saying india has never interfered with water supply, nor would, nor could really.

Fair enough, the reason i thought it was true, was because i heard from someone i know who's from Pakistan and seems to have a fairly unbiased opinion (she certainly not pro Pakistan), and that's what she told me, though it may be that she was in turn told that by someone who knew naught.
Basically she told me that the reason Pakistan was terrified of giving Kashmir to India was that virtually the entire water supply for the country passes through there, she also said that the last time India had control over it they shut it off. If she's wrong, i'll have to berate her for telling me wrong stuff! Grrr!
