India and Pakistan have announced their first formal truce since the outbreak of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir in the late 1980s.

The guns on both sides of the border fell silent midnight November 25, coinciding with the Eid festivities. 

But while many see it as a light at the end of the tunnel, others suspect Pakistan's intentions.Will this ceasefire hold?
