Abstract

The protests that broke out after the elimination of HM Commander Burhan Wani on 08 July 2016 took the State and security establishment by surprise and caught them completely off guard. This unrest was qualitatively different from previous protests in terms of intensity, scale, and the nature of public participation. since then there has been a substantial increase in violent incidents and fatalities through the rest of the year especially in the Kashmir Valley. A debate has also been started in public domain about the need to remove article 370 so that rest of the Indians could invest, purchase property or settle down in J & K. The situation in Kashmir Valley has been going through intermittent phases of stability and turmoil. This present cycle of protests and agitations is however disconcerting. The two most alarming aspects of the current phase of Kashmir's agitational terrorism are the rise in the number of local terrorists, and the growing acceptance and legitimacy of terrorists in society. The situation has been exploited fully by Pakistan with an impetus to cross border terrorism and continued support to the separatist movement.
