India and Pakistan

Divided in two parts - The conflict between Indian and Pakistan, which began during partition of the country by the British and escalated over issues of Kashmir, threatens to become a global crisis. Today both India and Pakistan possess nuclear capabilities and the means of destroying each other's country within minutes. At the same time, religious violent continues to be factor in many parts of both countries as extremists and terrorists infiltrate and seek violence.

This threat is real, however the peace history of the region has also been great with leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi and Abdul Ghaffar (Badshah) Khan in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
