Every conflict zone is a human problem. The national security or the ‘independence’ lens really does not capture the torment of zero healthcare, zilch jobs and real absence of hope. The question to be asked is, is the land so vital even if the people treat you as oppressors? And the other question to the other end of the spectrum is: How do you envision life for your citizens after peace is achieved? Will the current revolutionary class be the new power elite ? Will the status quo evolve for the unemployed boy who throws stones for two hundred rupees?
