And so it came to pass... Two months ago, Kashmir on the surface was at its glorious best, overflowing with tourists from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Yet all was not well, and as very often happens, everything changed overnight. Burhan Wani’s killing was only the catalyst, or excuse, given the subterranean anger, hatred and alienation. Something was always waiting to happen. The status quo we banked on favoured the other side more than us. And now, Pakistan, always ready to fish in Kashmir’s troubled waters, is all over us. Lashkar and Jaish are calling the shots. Unwittingly, Burhan Wani’s killing has become Kashmir’s Bastille Day moment.
