'Cached resistance: The “unheard” narratives of militancy in Kashmir

Chapter by PhD researcher Haris Zargar
Haris Zargar

Haris Zagar reconstructs Kashmiri rebels through their 'silenced' histories contained within the intimate memories of their family members.

Published as a chapter in the Routledge Handbook of critical Kashmir studies, this paper by PhD researcher Haris Zargar uses in-depth interviews to explore how the close kin of Kashmiri militants recall, comprehend and rationalize their rebellious family members’ motives, values and actions.

Zargar features memoirs of three recently active and prominent Kashmiri militants, revealing details about their lives, beliefs and experiences before joining the armed movement.

By unveiling the personal histories of these militants from the standpoints of their families, the chapter seeks to broaden the understanding of militancy and militants in this disputed Himalayan Valley.
