Safety in Kashmir:

In September 2005, there is no war going on and i think it hasn't for some time. There is no need to be a fearful tourist just a careful one. The place should be considerably safer than Bali or London as there is no global terrorism problem there.

Locals told me that the Pakistani government does not currently support the separatist militants. Tourists are not the target of any violence, the Indian military are. There are a great many military in Srinagar. Just don't hang around them as it is their centres were recent bombings have taken place. The bombings are fairly small and kill a handful of people in each incident.
