Recently, the government of India decided to limit the autonomy of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, which is claimed by Pakistan, and to make Ladakh, which was previously part of Jammu and Kashmir, into a separate union territory of India. Ladakh is a Tibetan Buddhist region, which has long desired separation from Jammu and Kashmir. The Muslims of Kashmir are strongly opposed to the loss of autonomy of Jammu and Kashmir.
Jammu and Kashmir became part of India when Hari Singh, the Maharaja of Kashmir, acceded to India. Hari Singh initially wanted Kashmir to remain independent, but changed his mind, when Pakistan invaded Kashmir.
