This is a useful article (with limited political perspectives) about the toll the Indian siege against Kashmir is taking on India & Pakistan’s economies. One would think the devastation caused on the Kashmiri economy would at least merit mention. What’s useful about it is that India’s economy was already in a severe crisis before the siege. Part of the purpose of the siege was to strengthen India’s tanking economy by unbridled exploitation of Kashmiri natural resources. But militarism is an immense drain on the system. That doesn’t mean Indian capitalism will just collapse but that is why it is resorting to fascism. This reality is what makes the protests in India & the international protests in solidarity with Kashmir & against CAB & NRC of such monumental importance.
