Kashmir: Power of the pain in practice
History of human beings is testimony that who so ever struggled to be free from the clutches of occupation used to be shabby in terms of manpower and resources. Furthermore, it is also a bitter reality that occupier gears up all resources including the hard power to dominate when the use of the soft means failed to yield desired results as in the case of Kashmir since 1989 and continues to be ungovernable by India. India policy is realist rational, whereas morality used to be compromised with interests otherwise human rights as the principle of Magna Carta followed by League of nations to UN and Washington declaration must have prevented India from aggression when more than 110,000 Kashmisi got killed while as 9000 Kashmiris are lodged in various interrogation centers and Jails of India. It is an instinct of the occupier to dominate aggressively therefore, we have to deal with India as she is, instead what we want to see her.
This characteristic is make-up of all living creature, however, an ecosystem is still intact among all creatures including the social animal with their interpretations, therefore, scuffle to dominate the other human beings will never end. The morality will remain subservient to the power but ultimately the resilience triumphs because it is powered with pain by the passage of time when conflict stretches.
The instinct of the domination of the human race over inferior one is more callous and robust with the dialectical use of Kinetic and non-kinetic forces in the powerplay with the passage of evolution. The Charles Darwin’s doctrine of the survival of the fittest is more applicable to the human race than animals because the wild beasts have limitations to dominate with relation to the physical requirement, they don’t heart unnecessarily until the stomach is satisfied, however, there are no limitations of the domination in the social animal over another one particularly in Iok where India had crossed all limits of the wild beast also.
We argue that even if power controls and dominates sometimes either partially or completely but there is some hidden aspect which brings back weaker ones to sustain and prevail even if contained in the conflict theater. We focus that pain inflicted by powerful by bringing in play both kinetic and non-kinetic force in the theatre don’t vanish but augments resolve in the long run. We argue that pain cannot be neutralized by force. It is the minimum common ground for unity among all stakeholders amid of polarization, though powerful have superiority in all domains Despite the fact, there are multiple factors when the maximum pain is inflicted by an aggressor with greater gravity of pain intensifies the degree of hatred against the enemy, though aggressed goes in dormant phase in intervals or for some unlimited period. This period sometimes stretches to decades or centuries.
The pain inflicted by the aggressor is quantified in stake which makes one stakeholder of the overall objective because physically he has nothing in hand except the miseries and agonies, therefore, more the sacrifice in terms of physical, relatives and kith’s and kins killed or property and other assets damaged more is the stake. The pain is the catalyst that intensifies hatred hence more the hatred more is the resolve is a proven variable in every conflict.
To transform this pain in the power has multiple variables associated but we argue that the pain is the main asset upon which our argument is vowed upon in contemporary situations because any and every other factor to survive are under severe stress. After all, power snatches every aspect of life like India in her occupied part of Kashmir. The aggressor cannot make progress without inflicting pain, therefore, domination continues till it reaches the ultimate phase of precipitation. We also argue that she cannot make progress without pain because it is simply her requirement to have results on the ground. inflicting pain is the compulsion of the enemy which he usually ignores. The pain is an asset having utility because it is the natural outcome when one is being martyred while the enemy quantifies her progress in terms of the physical damage.
Kashmir is a sad saga of the pain and agony since 1989. Four generations are consumed and 5th is in play, Hegmon India has control over any and every narrative besides having leverage on the ground in terms of the hard power because having enough kinetic and non-kinetic forces on the ground to dilute the legally justified movement of the right to self-determination. Her huge population is her mega consumer market and leverage to lure the global powers which give her the advantage to keep sane international inert.
The burning question is what are the levers in hands of the victim; generally, in post 5th August when she scrapped unilaterally and illegally the special status of Kashmir guaranteed under article 370 and 35/A and particularly is post corona-19 pandemic. It gave Indian extra teeth to conceal the gross human rights violations, She launched the all-time high offensive in Nawa kadal Srinagar, Lolab and Rebban Shopian to kill 38 freedom fighters. Indian force’s current modus-operandi and drive are more lethal and brutal. She set ablaze 88 houses in three residential areas more after they don’t return the remains of the Kashmiris and buries them in unknown places. It intensifies the gravity of pain multifold particularly of those who are stakeholders.
The aggressor tactical triumphs are numerically quantified but the pain inflicted upon Kashmiris augments their resolve and magnifies the constituency of freedom lovers as a stakeholder. The pain is the lone catalyst of victims as non-kinetic power which is common in Kashmir and the icon of the stake. Pain keeps alive and who so ever cracked the clutches of slavery so for, in contemporary history, the aggressor used to be powerful but the presence of 194 independent states in the map of the world speaks volumes that resolve triumphed over aggressive kinetic forces even India itself from a colonial power who declared Subash Chander Bose, Mangal Panday, Baghat Sigh as terrorists.
The sustenance of the struggle at this stage is vital because India had crossed all limits of aggression during a global pandemic. The Kashmiris diaspora had the potential to play a role.1) Answer any and every article on the web while loading the brutalities.2). Correct the perceptions and misperceptions build by the Jinguistic nuclear nationalistic media of India 3) Represent the pain, not any group, and be updated what is trading about Kashmir in Indian media.4)Show your positive presence with the logical argument because it matters.5) Induct the coming generation in fields of electro-magnetic, space, and cyber technology is an innovative way to transform the pain in power.
