When human right is viewed from a universalist perspective, relativism seems unsustainable in the modern world, as even the most remote indigenous groups have been sustainably integrated into global politics, culture, and economy and are subject to ever-growing external influences.
Here we must ask some genuine questions: Will an independent Kashmir face similar problems of structural injustices, poverty, gender parity, economic inequality, and rule of elites and feudal lords? Will the Indian trooper be replaced by a Kashmiri one with similar powers to kill and maim with impunity? Will we suppress the political aspirations of our own people in a similar manner as India is doing now?
