Abstract: It offers an opportunity to take a relook at the crisis and correct mistakes. The state and society must seize the moment The ongoing violence in Kashmir is seen primarily from a negative perspective, with separatists in the Valley using it as a tool to bounce back and become politically relevant, bleeding-heart liberals using it as another tool to vilify the state and its (in)action, and security forces bouncing back with a ‘we told you so’ note and ‘this is not the time to discuss AFSPA’. What is forgotten conveniently in the blame game is the loss of young lives in Valley, hard-fought achievements of the security forces in reducing the level of violence, tough bargain between the two leading political parties and the slow process of normalisation.
