Why can't Pakistanis visit Kerala?

Hi all

This is idle curiosity more than anything, and if the Lonely Planet site was working OK I'd post it on Thorn tree rather than here. But - in following the recent happenings between Ind and Pak in Kashmir, I came across this:- BBC News - India puts visa deal with Pakistani on hold

It makes mention of 'Pakistanis would (not) be allowed to visit Indian-administered Kashmir, Punjab, Kerala and "other prohibited areas" '

The first two I can understand, but why on earth Kerala?!

God only knows.

It's a "family fight" and those are always the most intense and mostly intensely stupid.

In my 6 years of living in India I sent my employees to Pakistan numerous times. They were treated exceptionally well and marveled at how what they were told about Pakistan and the reality differed.

Other employees, generally London-based, who were of Pakistani origin (having a parent of Pakistani birth) could NEVER get a Visa.

It's only in the last two years that it was legal for a Pakistani FILM to be shown or sold in India !

The Kerala part could just be a game - "see, it's NOT about Kashmir or the Indian Punjab".
