Kashmir: Cycle of Violence

By Javeed Shah

The separatist insurgency in Indian Administered Kashmir entered its seventeenth year in 2006. After a relentless cycle of violence spanning bloody encounters between militants and the Indian Army, car bombs, suicide attacks, the 2006 saw a conspicuous rise in the grenade attacks all over the Valley, with the summer capital of the state Srinagar seeing the most of the action. Around 70,000 people have lost their lives in the continuing separatist violence in Kashmir, a state jointly claimed by India and Pakistan. The two countries, which have divided the Kashmir between them, with India controlling two-third of the state’s area, have fought three wars to assert their respective ownership claims over the entire state.
