Abstract

Pakistan India has harvested poor contacts between the people. Kashmir issue is observed as the bone of contention as it has fetched up the three full scale conventional wars in the past in 1948, 1965, 1971and Kargil war in 1999. Cross-border terrorism has also derailed the peace process and developed uncertainty between both sides. Unfriendly relations have generated the emotions of hate and distrust between the people of both sides. Gap of contracts have created fear of loss and doubts in the minds of both sides citizens. The power masses can force policy makers to sit on the table for peace and mutual benefits of the region. The people of India Pakistan has weak linkages due to traditional rivalry. The study has examined the role of SAARC for mutual integration between the people of Pakistan India. The study has suggested benefits of connections between the people of Indo-Pak for regional prosperity in South Asia.
