Striking a Chord with Kashmiriyat
Everyone - political leaders, intelligence professionals, strategic analysts, military generals have reached the conclusion that Kashmir"s troubles are solely attributed to India"s mismanagement of the situation and Pakistan"s hostilities. Three unsuccessful wars and myriad of terror attacks on Indian Territory and the ground situation remains volatile as ever. Kashmir remains a contentious issue between India and Pakistan. Indian Prime Ministers from Atal Bihari Vajpayee to Narendra Modi had extended a hand of friendship towards Pakistan to lessen its ability to stir up volatility in Kashmir. This has achieved mixed results owing to disparate attitudes of civilian government and Pakistan military and the hegemony of military over civilian government in Pakistan. The outreach to Kashmir youth have attained better results in enthusing them for seeking better employment opportunities, communication facilities, economic benefits, etc. The current turmoil in Kashmir- weeks of curfew, spontaneous street violence and pelting stones, total media blackout etc should not be taken as an extension of the earlier spells of unrest in the region. How did Burhan Wani turn into a stature of a martyr? Why did this issue receive such a ferocious public reaction it did? No one has tried to understand the situation beneath the ground. The movement appears to be on an autopilot without any upfront leaders. This is a dangerous situation and political leaders and security establishment should be troubled. Reiterating commitment to Art 370 or repeating slogans like "Insaniyat, Kashmiriyat and Jhamooriyat" is not going to do much to improve the ground situation. Talking to separatist leaders may be good but even they are at dissonance with the young blood revolting on streets. The political leadership at state and centre level doesn"t seem to have any intellectual ideas on dealing with the state of affairs. It might be a good idea to involve psychologists, social scientists, strategic thinkers to heave upon the circumstances.
