The Two Kashmirs: A Comparative Analysis
There has been a steady and incessant campaign by Pakistan against India with effective use of the media and diplomacy. This has corrupted the imagination of impressionable minds in J&K and raised an architecture of violence, which some call the ‘terror industry.’ The Two Kashmirs is an attempt to compare Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) with the rest of Kashmir in India. It discusses the hypothesis advanced by advocates of violence and resistance in J&K about the state being on the receiving end as far as Indian economic and developmental policies are concerned. The data is collected and analysed on the indices of development—ranging from the very basic ones—like life-expectancy and literacy to healthcare and education.
