Ashish Dhar explains how Kashmir problem is more of a civilizational problem than a political one

The Pulwama terror attack plan may well have been hatched in Pakistan, it was executed by a Kashmiri youth, an Indian, who presumably has voting rights too, says Ashish Dhar, co-founder of Pragyata and Upword. “Why a citizen of India would wage a war against the State?” asks Dhar in his video.

He lists out various reasons given by politician and mediapersons regarding why the youth of Kashmir takes up arms against the nation. He says one of the major reasons they do so is because of unemployment. To which, Dhar questions what about people from other states with comparable unemployment rates. We hardly hear about insurgencies in such states, says Dhar.

Dhar then lists out other such ‘explanations’ provided for the volatility in the valley and debunks them. “What is it that drives an average Kashmiri Muslim like Adil Dar or Burhan Wani to militate against the Indian State? Unfortunately, there is no answer,” he said. Ashish Dhar then analyses statements of the terrorists to try and understand their psyche.

He explains how this is more of a civilizational problem than a political one. He says it in as many words that no amount of political discourse will solve the Kashmir problem till it is taken in the civilizational context.
