Accepted Paper:

CONNECTIONS & INTERLINKAGES: EXAMINING SOLIDARITIES IN THE OCCUPIER LAND  
dyuti a (University of Sussex)

Paper short abstract:

The paper seeks to explore solidarities forged by the Kashmiris living in Delhi with Indians and each other against the changing and evolving contours of the social-political unfolding.

Paper long abstract:

The streets in Delhi reverberated with the Azadi slogan in the aftermath of the amendment to the Citizenship Act. The slogan that finds its roots in the Kashmir Valley, as an appeal against Indian occupation, found resonance with and came to the rescue of the Indians resisting the amendment. The protests stood out as a moment when the Kashmiri Muslims extended solidarities with the Indian-Muslims. The moment separated from abrogation of Article 370, that formed the legal basis of the relationship between India and Kashmir, by a few months saw very different reactions from the Indian community. Emerging from the ethnographic fieldwork, the paper explored different communities and alliances that are forged in the occupier's land by Kashmiris. The paper seeks to explore these connections and solidarities forged by the Kashmiris living in Delhi with Indians and with each other against the changing and evolving contours of the social-political unfolding. “Solidarity is an uneasy, reserved, and unsettled matter that neither reconciles present grievances nor foreshadows future conflict” (Yang and Tuck 2012). The paper seeks to explore what does solidarity mean for the Kashmiris in Delhi? What does it seek to achieve?
