The attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims in J&K recently has revived the debate on the Kashmiriyat and how such violence in a Sufi society is unacceptable. During the recent years, there have been multiple inputs/debates on the Kashmiriyat and the attacks against it. While a section swears by it, a section is worried about its erosion. A cynical perspective even takes this debate to the extreme and has proclaimed its end.
