Post-abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir the emerging political scenario will give an identity crisis for the main players who had kept Kashmir boiling for the past few decades. What is to be seen is whether the elements who prophesized and propagated separatism will join mainstream or not? Because the Naya Kashmir will see the emergence of new permutations and combinations for the political survival and separatists too are no exception in this pressure game. With the political amalgamation of J&K with the Indian Union and removing all hurdles there is going to be emergence of a new political equation giving way to the separatists agenda propagated since 1947.The present curbs clamped on mobile internet and social media along with the constant pressure build up by police in maintaining pressure on terrorists has brought the expected dividends for the government in Kashmir Valley, the trouble spot. Because of this pressure the police has been able to check the misleading information flow. Even some of the small outfits who earlier were promoting the separatists agenda today must be thinking of changing the course of action and would like to join mainstream parties. With India upping the ante as far as India-Pakistan stand is considered and relegating Kashmir to second position and freeing Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to number one position in bilateral relations there is going to be a big change in the political ideologies. Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh for the first time has made clear the India’s stand on PoK while addressing a political rally in Karnal, Haryana to flag off the BJP’s Jan Ashirwad Yatra for the October assembly polls. In fact India should not hold any talks with Pakistan which has been nurturing terrorism in Kashmir to carry forward its nefarious agenda of bleeding India for years except on PoK. This ideological change which was not seen for the last seven decades is going to be the game changer to usher in Naya Kashmir for the people in days to come.
