Kahmir Conflict: For the last five weeks, Kashmir valley is literally under curfew while police violence has claimed over 60 lives in this fresh wave of protests. Unfortunately, the Kashmir conflict is often seen as a dispute between India and Pakistan. However, people of Kashmir are fighting for Azadi (independence). According to UN resolutions, the people of Kashmir are supposed to decide the fate of Kashmir in a democratic plebiscite. India and Pakistan have coalesced to deny the Kashmiris their right to self determination.
