NPR's Michael Sullivan reports from Srinigar that violence in Indian-controlled Kashmir is increasing. The leader of one militant group based in Pakistan, says his group has implemented a deliberate strategy of staging dangerous, even suicidal attacks on Indian security forces in Kashmir. The goal is to force India to withdraw from the disputed Himalayan region. Bloodshed in Kashmir escalated even as President Clinton was in India last month, calling on both India and Pakistan to resolve their dispute with dialogue rather than violence. Civilians in Kashmir are increasingly victimized by the long-running battle for control of the territory.
