The Kashmir Crisis
CPR faculty analyse

The death of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with the Indian security forces triggered a series of violent protests across Kashmir. CPR faculty analyse the resultant unrest in Kashmir in a series of commentaries below:

  • G Parthasarathy in an interview on DD News (above) comments on the Prime Minister’s response to the situation in Kashmir, and the internal political climate of Pakistan.
  • Writing in the Hindustan Times, Shyam Saran examines the deep and growing divide between the administration and the people of Kashmir.
  • In the Indian Express, Pratap Bhanu Mehta elaborates on the civil unrest in Kashmir and analyses the rhetoric surrounding the violence.

The views shared belong to individual faculty and researchers and do not represent an institutional stance on the issue.
