Kashmir is now referred to as the “erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir.” That juridical status will entail many changes & may make the struggle for self-determination much more difficult because of iron-fisted & fascistic control by India. But it will not defeat Kashmiri resistance nor crush the spirit of azadi. Kashmiris will be free. Forging active solidarity in unity with Palestinians, Rohingya, Uyghur, & others sustaining dispossession & genocide will make that day come sooner for all.
