A volcano waiting to explode
It has been one year since autonomy was taken away from Indian-administered Kashmir. It all started in August 2019 when India made an illegal, unconstitutional and unethical decision that the territory of Kashmir that it occupies would no longer be a semi-autonomous region, and ruled that the state of Jammu & Kashmir would be separated into two federally-run territories: Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh, as of October 31, 2019. India has also taken the step to allow non-Kashmiris to own land and houses in the territory, while also reinstating military rule, as well as inflicting a complete communications ban on its people. Further to this, a curfew came down on Kashmir on August 3, put in place largely out of fear separatists would launch violent protests around the first anniversary of New Delhi’s annexation of the state. This all shows that there is a deep fear in the Indian government that Kashmir is getting out of t here hands as all its efforts are being strongly resisted and this is the phenomenon that has given Kashmiris youth a new vigour to fight for the freedom of their homeland. What we nowadays look in Kashmir is an eerie silence that could be the idiomatic ‘calm before the storm’.
