Dr. Suresh Khairnar who has recently returned from Kashmir after spending a meaningful time to witness the situation on ground. Apart from meeting commoners, Dr. Khairnar also met media professionals, separatist leaders and a few mainstream leaders in his trip. Since his return he has been travelling all across India conducting interactive sessions with people from diverse sects of Indian civil society to share his recent Kashmir experiences. Dr. Khairnar talked about the peoples fate who experienced extreme violence ,Most still had post-traumatic stress disorder and narrates the over use of lethal weapons like pellet guns. He extends his sympathy to all people who have lost their lives, eyes or their body organs to the bullets and pellets.
The Bandh in Kashmir is more than six months old. Suffering there for common men and women is untold. When the central and state governments are apparently insensitive to this problem, it is the responsibility of Indian civil society to respond to this situation and make effort to revoke the Bandh that has brought life to a grinding halt.
He explained the war in terms of a policy driven more by the political interests of political players on both sides of the LOC than any ethical jurisdictions. A re-occurring theme throughout the seminar was that we cannot simply look at the past to predict the future: we are living in a fundamentally changing world.
Dr.Khairnar explained the factors associated with conflict and point towards the social, economic, political fragility and legitimised torture in the Kashmir region. His personal experience after his visit to Kashmir valley is quite different now from what one might expect based on the daily news we consume. The lecture reminded the responsibility of the state to Protect and Transitional Justice for every citizen.
