Kashmir from Barriers of Discomfort to Hope: A Case of Hurriyat Conference

Nasir Ahmad Ganaie


The State of Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed turmoil, political instability, social unrest, and discomfort not only during the independence movement but also after the signing of instrument of accession with the Union of India. It has also suffered a lot from the outcomes of some minor incidents during the contemporary period. There are divided and dynamic opinions that have emerged in the state for these underlying crises. The prime civil servants and most prestigious political leaders of the state attribute this development entirely to the state of retardation, whereas others transmit it to the shortage of the government policy to resolve the political aspirations of entities of this geographical area. It might even be a hot discussion whether or not peace emerges from development. There is no denial in the actual incontrovertible fact that the State of Jammu and Kashmir and its geographical area is blessed and bestowed with substantial human and natural resources.

This study endeavors to explore those factors which have made the state handicapped and dependent teeming with disturbances.
