During the reign of Pervez Musharraf, we can see a plight between India and Pakistan due to the Kargil issue. The relations between India and Pakistan were never felicitous rather they remained in a state of continuous war between each other. They fought with each other in 1965 and 1971. So, there was a deadlock between India and Pakistan due to the issue of Kashmir.
In Musharraf’s era, both governments tried to decrease the tension between the two countries. There happened a ceasefire agreement and bus service between Lahore and Dehli in 2003. In January
2004, a composite dialogue between the two countries was initiated by both governments. Though a lot of efforts have been made between the two countries to normalize their relationships all ended up in vain.
Under Musharraf’s rule, Pakistan made agreements against terrorism with America. This causes a lot of loss to the economy. many killed due to the operations and the era that was full of conflicts.
