spurt in militancy-related violence has claimed 17 lives in two days while over 30 people were injured in civilian clashes with security forces in the same period — raising the spectre of another summer of violent discontent The signs are all there: a spurt in violence separatists uniting to continue their "protest calendar" large numbers of civilians attending funerals of slain militants and small mobs gathering to pelt stones at the security forces during gunfights with militants On Tuesday for instance the security forces reportedly intercepted a car in Pulwama district The occupant of the car abandoned the vehicle and managed to slip away as some youths distracted the security forces by pelting stones at them Reports said the man who slipped away was Abu Dujana a top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Representational image PTI Are these developments telltale marks of another summer unrest in the making If top officers of the security forces are to be believed the answer is no But if one is to go by the local grapevine these are signals of another summer of discontent waiting in the wings Even senior officers of state and other intelligence agencies appear to be divided in their opinion about this "People cannot afford to do away with their livelihood every now and then The Valley was at a standstill for over five months last year Development and livelihoods were destroyed "People have not recovered from that shock They are looking forward to a normal summer this year so that they can earn to survive Granted that the separatists are looking for opportunities to create trouble but people are fed up" one senior intelligence officer told IANS on condition of anonymity On the flip side an officer of another intelligence agency told IANS: "The one thing that can be said with absolute certainty about the situation in Kashmir is that it cannot be predicted with absolute certainty" "We had a bloody summer unrest in 2010 The separatists achieved nothing through that except that the common man suffered immensely It was believed that lessons had been learnt but we had another bloody unrest in 2016 "I don’t say that we are on the brink of another unrest and yet I firmly believe lowering the guard would be disastrous" the officer explained The state government has been doing everything possible to encourage the youth to join sports compete at in state- and country-level civil service exams look beyond the beaten track to find avenues for a better tomorrow in the corporate world so that militant groups are not able to woo them "It is a vicious circle of sorts that cannot be avoided as long as militancy continues Crackdowns and other anti-militancy operations cannot be stopped because these pertain to the security of the country" a senior army officer told IANS "As long as there are local militants however small or large their numbers might be you cannot avoid their getting killed in operations We have in fact taken serious casualties during recent operations to avoid civilian damage "When a local militant gets killed sympathies naturally arise Families relatives neighbours and friends protest such a death and the separatists find these situations handy" the officer added In a nutshell what do all these developments indicate Are we headed for another unrest in 2017 Would better sense prevail and peace be given a chance to allow Kashmiris live a normal life Well predictions have always been the Waterloo of fortune-tellers in Kashmir It is good that the Supreme Court has asked why there is no mechanism to protect minority rights in Jammu and Kashmir Minorities everywhere must be protected That is the mark of a civilized society However a question mark has been looming large on the meaning of minority in this state Muslims are the major minority group in the overall context of India but at 63 percent they comprise the majority of the state’s population On this basis the petition that has raised the issue in the Supreme Court argues that Hindus are the major minority in the state On the face of it this is true But this is an inadequate model For this is the most sociologically complex place in the world —even more than the Balkans So the meaning and content of the term `minority’ changes from place to place Representational image Reuters Sociological complexity In Poonchh for example Sikhs and Hindus are religious minorities In Doda only Hindus are In the tiny valley of Bani Gaddis Sippis and Muslims can all claim to be minorities How their rights are to be protected can sometimes be a complex challenge While Gaddis are classed as a scheduled tribe many Gaddi residents claim to be Rajput Hindus In Jammu and places like Samba and Chinaini Muslims are the major minority But among Jammu-based Muslims those who call themselves Dogra Muslims Gujjar Muslims and Kashmiri Muslims do not necessarily see themselves as belonging to the same community They do not generally inter-marry and their language and food habits differ In Leh district Muslims are the minority religious group However even among Muslims local Sunni leaders argue that they are a minority within a minority since they generally do not inter-marry with the more numerous local Shia A large number of local Sunnis of Leh district are `Argon’ – descended from Kashmiris who migrated centuries ago but have married local women for generations Buddhists are the major minority group in most parts of Kargil district but Muslims are the minority in the Zanskar Valley The four Sikh and one Hindu family in Kargil are minorities too And Sunni residents of Kargil town with Kashmiri origins are generally known as Khache and not treated as integral to the locally dominant community In the Kashmir Valley Sikhs and Hindus are the notable religious minorities In linguistic-ethnic terms Gujjars and Pahadis too are important minority groups Gujjars are the major minority in the Pahadi-dominated Karnah area of Kupwara district —both communities being Muslim Plus there is a substantial number of Sikhs too in some pockets of Karnah Urgent need to unite In light of the extraordinary sociological complexity of this state a commission to protect minority rights must look into protecting the rights of the various peoples who comprise minority communities in different parts of the state The institution must be a peacemaker so that all may see it as a defender of their safety rights and dignity The state already has a commission for scheduled tribes which tends to see itself as the vehicle for the promotion of Gujjars’ interests This objective has succeeded well over the past 40 years but has had a reductionist impact on the multi-cultural nature of the state particularly in the Rajouri and Poonchh districts where several ethnic-linguistic and religious groups that used to celebrate their unique differences now try to define themselves as Pahadi —to push collectively for the extension of reservations to this category A mechanism to protect minority rights is very important but it must be based on a broad vision It must not lead to the further squeezing of space to celebrate multiple identities and cultures The state has already been pushed into a Muslim versus Hindu binary more so through the vigorous production and spread of rival narratives over the past decade This process got a huge fillip after the transfer of land to the Sri Amarnath Shrine Board in 2008 The agitations which followed were extremely divisive A minorities commission should seek to
