What caused the Indian-Pakistan
War in 1965?
The second Indo-Pakistani conflict (1965) was also fought over Kashmir and started without a formal declaration of war. [
The war was initiated by Pakistan who since the defeat of India by China in 1962 had come to believe that Indian military would be unable or unwilling to defend against a quick military campaign in Kashmir, and because the Pakistani government was becoming increasingly
alarmed by Indian efforts to integrate Kashmir within India. There was also a perception that there was widespread popular support within for Pakistani rule and that the Kashmiri people were disatisfied with Indian rule. ]
