Shadows Over Kashmir

A Riddle

By Biplab K. Mazumdar

The 60 years of conflict between India and Pakistan over the territory of Kashmir have been years of hatred and bitterness - and also of great and somber challenge. Several times, these two nations have gone to war over the issue. Sorrow or suffering is the starting point of the Kashmiri people and others in the region. Anxiety over the conflict between the two giants has caused religious fundamentalism and social darkness to take root, terrifying the people of this sub-continent. Separatism - in casteism, communalism, and provincialism - as well as linguistic differences have increased the bitterness between neighbors. Among the rulers at the center of the Kashmir issue, flabbiness, inconsistency, and ambiguity are becoming more and more rampant. The crimes of Pakistan lie not in the fate of victims but in the silence of those who for 60 long years knew what was happening and said nothing. Shadows Over Kashmir: A Riddle examines how the years of conflict and the political silence have impacted the lives of those in the region.
