There is need to rethink Kashmir strategy because the old approach has not yielded the desired results. India’s cost of occupation of Kashmir must be escalated to the point where it would outstrip the benefits.
India under Narendra Modi has become a fascist state. Nowhere is this more evident than in its brutal suppression of the Kashmiri people that have been struggling for the right of self-determination for more than 70 years.
Since the Hindu fascist regime led by Narendra Modi in India abrogated Jammu and Kashmir’s special status in August 2019, the Kashmiris’ plight has turned grim. While they are struggling to survive on a day-to-day basis, Hindu settler colonialists are flooding the state to take over.
India’s settler-colonial project in Jammu and Kashmir continues apace with the pandemic making life even more miserable for the oppressed Kashmiri people. The Hindu extremist regime in Delhi is involved in land-grab and changing the demography of the state.
