Silenced and shut down: Kashmir’s year of lockdown | The Listening Post

It has been more than a year since New Delhi scrapped Indian-administered Kashmir’s special status. Why has the region’s history been so hotly disputed – on the ground and in the news media – since India’s independence from the United Kingdom more than 70 years ago?

    From the outside, it seems like the logical conclusion when resources and money is scarce, that people begin competing with each other and blaming each other.. we are seeing this phenomenon in all nations.. religion and race are usually the most effective scapegoats
