'Beautiful. Chak masterfully interrogates the flashpoints that make the Kashmir crisis one of the most politically sensitive issues in modern world history' Khaled A. Beydoun, Law Professor and author of American Islamophobia
The territory of Jammu and Kashmir is one of the most politically contested and heavily militarized spaces on the planet. It has long been presented as an 'internal dispute', mainly by India, in attempts to sustain power through settler colonialism. In this context, Kashmiri voices are rarely heard.
In Nuclear Flashpoint, Farhan Chak reveals how the history, culture, and the will of the people of Kashmir has been deliberately obscured to suit ideological agendas. He explores six unique time frames in Kashmiri historyfrom ancient Kashmir, through the British Raj, to the present day.
Asking 'who is a Kashmiri?', Chak shines a light on the long cycle of revolt that continues in resistance movements today, and asks us to reconsider Kashmir's ongoing quest for independence.
