Kashmir in under an hour

I stumbled across a YouTube version of this interesting documentary on the Kashmir conflict, narrated by Pakistani intellectual Pervez Hoodbhoy. Slightly different versions of the story exist, and seem reasonably, and I'm not sure I agree with all of the documentary's conclusions. Nevertheless, if you don't know anything about the Kashmir conflict, this documentary does an excellent job of being balanced without being a-moral. If you're interested in getting a basic understanding of the forces at play, it's well worth the time.

I don't know if the documentary has been broadcast in India or Pakistan, but it should be.
