Centre for Aerospace and Security Studies (CASS) organized a one day conference entitled “Kashmir’s Future”, on September 4, 2019 in Islamabad. The Conference was organized to contemplate various policy options for Pakistan in view of deteriorating situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir. Since August 5, 2019, after unilateral revocation of Article 370 and scrapping of Article 35A by the Indian Government and forced annexation of disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the IOK is under siege with growing atrocities by the occupying Indian forces. While the government of Pakistan has initiated a massive diplomatic campaign to highlight the issue of Kashmir at all international forums, it is important to carve out a long term strategy involving all relevant stakeholders in Pakistan and find a definitive way forward.

The Think Tank’s Conference on Kashmir’s Future aimed to create a national forum, seeking expert inputs from intellectual minds of the country, providing different perspectives and recommending a way forward for the Kashmir issue. In this regard, think tanks from Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi were invited to discuss the ongoing situation and available options to the government. Reputed experts from academia, defense services, intellectuals, government departments and media came to attend the discussion. President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Massod Khan graced the occasion as the chief guest.
