    Another war between India and Pakistan?

    With Musharraf as CEO will the tensions with India increase. Pakistan foreign minister is also a known HAWK on India. India has already beefed up Kashmir border troops.

    Pakistani insurgents still a threat.

    They have deployed additional troops in the northern state of Jammu and Kashmir and border areas to check Pakistani efforts to create trouble in the region.

    “CONSEQUENT TO their comprehensive defeat in Kargil, the Pakistan army and ISI (Inter Services Intelligence) have intensified their efforts in the past two months to raise the level of proxy war in Jammu and Kashmir,” an Indian defense ministry statement said. “...additional army battalions have been deployed on anti-infiltration tasks to effectively prevent militants from sneaking inside,” it said.

    Separatist violence in the strife-torn state has surged since the end in July of an Indian offensive to dislodge infiltrators from the northern heights of Kargil in Kashmir.

    India says Pakistan supports the separatists in a “proxy war” but Pakistan denies the charge and says it only provides them moral and diplomatic support in their fight for self-determination.

    The statement said additional battalions had also been deployed in forest and high areas to flush out militants from their hideouts. It, however, did not mention the number of additional troops deployed.
