Kashmiri girls look on as unseen Indian policemen defuse a roadside bomb in Srinagar on May 6, 2009. A strike has been called by Muslim separatists to shore up their boycott of national elections shut down parts of Indian Kashmir on the eve of voting in the volatile Kashmir valley. India is holding its fifteenth parliamentary general elections in five phases on April 16, April 23, April 30, May 7 and May 13 and the new parliament will be constituted before June 2. Separatists oppose the holding of elections in Kashmir, arguing that they will not resolve the future of the disputed territory, held in part by India and Pakistan but claimed in full by both.
