India has long claimed that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK) is it

integral territory, and has repeatedly asserted its right to reclaim it. 

However, there is no easy or straightforward way for India to do so. 

One option would be to use military force to retake POK. 

This would be a risky and costly proposition, and it is not clear that India would be successful. 

Another option would be to use diplomacy to pressure Pakistan into giving up POK. 

This would be a more long-term approach, but it is also more likely to be successful.  

India could also try to build a strong economic and social base in POK. 

This would make it more difficult for Pakistan to control the region, and it  

could also make it more likely that the people of POK would want to join India.
