Kashmir widows: Wife of a soldier

The long-standing conflict in Indian-administered Kashmir has claimed thousands of lives over the last three decades.

The number of anti-India militants fighting the Indian army has reduced over the past few years but the scars of the conflict are still borne by the widows of the valley.

BBC News spoke to Kashmiri Muslim widows on opposite side of the conflict.

Gulshan Akhtar is the widow of a soldier who died fighting the militants in 2007.
