The cult of fidayeen and india
The cult of the fidayeen is not about killing, it s about dying. Fidayeen warfare is actually a sideshow. It is ineffective militarily and it is strategically trivial to the jihadist insurgency in Kashmir. It is actually intended to secure the hysteria we witness both in the media and among policymakers. It was in 1999 when the Lashkar s fidayeen war began. It was a signal to jihadist movement to not lose heart at Pakistan s military defeat. Post-Kargil insurgency, fidayeen became emblematic in Kashmir. It resulted in loss of lives of more Indian soldiers than the war itself. Many scholars have tried to analyze what leads men to join jihad. Their educational background varies from illiterates to graduates and includes some well-settled men. One of the instance witnessed by scholar Ayesha Siddiqa when she asked some young boys planning to go on jihad about imagining their future, they said We can tell you without closing our eyes that we don t see anything . The jihadi concern is also related with sexual exploitation of Muslim women by non-Muslims. The fidayeen attacks are theatrical acts of terror done to gain attention and keep the feeling of jihad alive.
