Terrorism In Jammu And Kashmir In Theory And Practice

Title:Terrorism In Jammu And Kashmir In Theory And Practice
Author:Praveen Swami
Publication:India Review / Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis Group
Enumeration:Vol. 2, No. 3, pp.: 55 - 88 /July 2003
Abstract:This article argues there is a need for a more nuanced analysis of terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir than has been available so far. First, the popular legitimacy of violent groups has little bearing on their operation. Rather, the keys to the intensity of terrorist activity are held by Pakistan's military establishment. Second, the supposedly secular-nationalist movement of the early 1990s was in fact deeply Islamist in character; there has been a greater unity of thought underpinning terrorism than the literature admits. Finally, the article argues, the operation of terrorism needs to be read not simply in the limited context of Jammu and Kashmir, but as part of a larger South Asian crisis of identity.
