Jammu and Kashmir: The Ongoing Jihad by Pakistan

Video of full lecture delivered in Bangalore about the civilisational and historical roots of the ongoing Jihad in Jammu and Kashmir.

This is the full video of my speech on the topic titled, “Pakistan, Jihad and Politics: The Entanglement of Jammu and Kashmir” delivered in Bangalore. What we call as the Kashmir “problem” is a polite way of describing a civilisational problem. It is a festering wound created by India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. In this video, I trace the historical and civilisational roots of this still-burning issue.

What has been happening in J&K for almost a century is an all-out civilisational assault rooted in a violent religious ideology. It is important to remember that Kashmir was part of the India that was lost in 1947 to Pakistan. In this connection, it is pertinent to remember current the fate of the Hindus in Muslim-majority Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is the same fate that Hindus in Kashmir are also suffering in Kashmir since the last thirty years. In fact, the civilisational problem in J&K is one of Hindu astitva and asmita. The entire, so-called Kashmir “problem” can be summed up in just one word: Jihad.
