Jammu and Kashmir: A Situation of Systematic Violations of Human Rights and Role of Mainstream Political Parties

Roohullah Sadiq, Younis Ahmad Sheikh


As the peace process started from 1996, it has been taken as a starting point for assessing the efforts of the mainstream political parties in controlling human rights violations. The mainstream political parties had played a crucial role in the peace process. Violence due to militancy and misgovernance has seriously dented the resilient Kashmir identity. Social institutions collapsed and society became harsh, punitive, withdrawn, and distrustful as well. In this study an attempt is made to undertake an intensive and detailed analysis of the role played by mainstream political parties in controlling human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir and to explore the impact of violence on the human rights and socio-economic development of the people.
