First off, there is nothing such as POK. It’s a comical term used by the indian media (of course for media consumption and political reasons). Technically, an occupation requires a military intervention and occupation of the land. In Pakistan, there is no “occupation” per say of the Kashmir controlled by Pakistan. There are no boots on ground and no soldiers or army deployed. No AFSPA. No curfews. No public protests. No firing. Nothing of that sort. It’s the most peaceful part of Pakistan. And Pakistan controls around 40% of Kashmir.

Right then, what qualifies to be an occupied land is then the indian side of the kashmir. Around 1 million boots on ground. Special powers given to army to search and kill. Curfews. Protests every now and then. In short, volatile and sensitive situation around the clock. That is called occupation.

Now the answer.

Why has India not been able to “recover” “POK” from Pakistan.

The answer is. You cannot recover what is not rightly yours.

Kashmir is an over 70% muslim land. If anything, it belongs to Pakistan as the people of Kashmir rightly did at the time of independence. The indian government had blackmailed the Hindu raja (appointed by the British over a muslim populated land) to turn in Kashmir to India if he wanted help from india. The hindu raja knew that he would not be able to control the public protests and demands alone. He then accepted indian terms and allowed indian intervention, which to this day exists. Pakistan freed 40% of the kashmir despite being very very weak. Why? Because Pakistan had moral grounds for doing so. Neither was it blackmailing anyone, nor using illegal force to occupy a Hindu land. This is to say that Pakistan today does a hidden deal with an Hindu dominated state to make it Part of Pakistan.

This is the basic reason. The other being, of course Pakistan army is no lemon for india to come and do that. India already needs a lot of work to keep kashmir in state of propaganda. That would just take away the cause from it. For india, it’s a win-win. It’s sole purpose with taking Kashmir is to keep war alive with Pakistan and whether or not it claims it, the conflict alone serves its purpose.
