Abstract: The India-Pakistani perennial conflicts over the past seven decades, in the struggle to possess Kashmir, have been posing serious problems to the region of South Asia and also to international community. This anomaly in their relations has raised some crucial questions by this study such as: Why the continuing dispute between India and Pakistan, over Kashmir, carry the risk of nuclear war? And, what can be the hazards if the nuclear war occurs between India and Pakistan. Furthermore, would the resolution of the IndiaPakistani border dispute create the opportunity for the settlement of other boundary problems in Asia? In this context, this study was undertaken to determine whether the continuing dispute between India and Pakistan, over Kashmir, carries the risk of nuclear war. And also what could be the hazards of eruption of the nuclear war between these two countries. It will also establish if the resolution of the India-Pakistani border dispute would create an opportunity for the settlement of other boundary problems in Asia. A literature review of books and articles in respect of the various wars were used to unveil the critical facts. To achieve this, the qualitative method of data collection and analysis was used. Afterwards, the study found out that religious fundamentalism had eroded peaceful relations between India and Pakistan. In a bid to describe the tenets of the study, the balance of power theory was employed as analytical framework. Finally, the study recommended that under a multilateral declaration, the withdrawn sovereignty and independence of the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir be restored by the UN, forcing India and Pakistan to withdraw their controls. Alternatively, the UN should permanently station their peace-keeping forces in the Line of Control to check the incessant infiltrations and resultant conflicts between them.
