Jammu and Kashmir has remained a matter of conflict between India and Pakistan since their independence and so they have fought three inter-state wars so far on and continue even till date. It has remained an active subject in the daily UN log and is deemed to have the credentials of being the highest militarized zone in the world. From last few decades people of Jammu and Kashmir continue to struggle with their right to self-determination. Many scholars have written analogues on the so called â€˜Kashmir-issueâ€™ and many of them have been shaped into movies and documentaries as well. The conflict in and around Kashmir is also a flash point between the two nuclear powers of south Asia and the prevailing conditions especially in the Kashmir valley have had a negative impact on the people. While torture in form of physical injuries can be seen by the eye, psychological trauma is being put to question time and again and very few of these cases of psychological torture have been observed and taken note of. Therefore, the significance of psychological trauma that crosses all thresholds of torture continues to remain obscure. This research is based on analyzing the effect of conflict on people in Kashmir. (Where we refer to Kashmir conflict it means the entire state of J&K).
