Kashmir Conflict, Human Rights Violations, Alternative Solutions, Humanitarianism


The Kashmir Conflict being internationally observed by the United Nations has 1948 resolution that becomes a festering wound of South Asia. The wars, military engagement, ongoing conflicts, terrorist attacks, drone strikes, brutally using pellet guns and chemical attacks, war crimes, killing self-determination of the people of occupied Kashmir, abusing minority rights, targeting religious communities and rape being used as a weapon of war these all are the signs of Modi fascism in the illegally Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK). Revocation of the article 35A and 370 of the Indian constitution are turning in nothing but the situation going worst in the world of human rights. The nature of human rights is universal regardless of race, gender, religion etc. Human rights violations are a global issue; thereof, the world is facing catastrophic circumstances due to ignoring the main issue of humanitarianism in the conflict. This is happening because one of the protracted conflict zone of J&K seems not immune to humanity despite being captured by the world attention. In the present paper we shall be using the humanitarian approach to Kashmir conflict. The approach is being taken and critically analysed as conflict actors face daunting challenges in the resolution of Kashmir conflict between India and Pakistan. Kashmiris thus are becoming hopeless in their struggle for the right of self-determination.
