Pakistan’s military focuses on preparing for a conflict with India, and its government teaches its citizens to fear India. India and Pakistan have gone to war twice over the disputed region Kashmir that lies between them like a no-man’s-land. This public radio story describes the dangerous legacy of the 1947 partition.
