A new rise of insurgencies in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir has become phenomenal in recent years. The increase in the number of these groups and recruitments can be attributed to the current Indian government’s attitude and policies. Since 2014, when BJP came into power, unrest has risen. Steps taken by BJP Government have initiated a new wave of civil unrest in IOJ&K. This report provides a brief account of the current regime’s policies and their administrative approaches that are leading IOJ&K to become a pool of locally bred militant insurgency.
