India-Pakistan: April 7, 2005


The peace effort between Pakistan and India took another step forward when bus service resumed, for the first time in over fifty years,  between Indian and Pakistani controlled portions of Kashmir. This happened despite the efforts of Islamic militants to stop it with violence. Both nations have hosted sports teams from the other, and tourism has increased enormously. All this good will is largely between people who were never religious fanatics in the first place. Islamic and Hindu radicals are still calling for violence, but in both nations these people are a small minority.
