Very recently, while talking to a rally in Islamabad on the Kashmir Solidarity matter, PM Imran Khan reiterated the hazardous consequences the world can experience if the gravity of the Kashmir dispute between two nuclear rivals is ignored. Certainly, the ongoing flaming in the Kashmir Valley is really a volcano that can ignite the human existence on the planet within few minute if its provocative nature is not realized by the global community, which may be a conducive instrument for defusing the dispute. There are varied factors that can accentuate its inflammatory nature today.

Firstly, relations between India and Pakistan have been perplexing and generally unfriendly because of various recorded facts and political occasions. Relations between these two states have been characterized by the vicious segment of British India in 1947, the Kashmir struggle and the various military wars and clashes battled between the two countries. Therefore, their relationship has been tormented by threatening, suspicions and mis-perceptions. Presently after Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Bill, Pakistan cut off reciprocal and trade relations with India, pulled back the Pakistani diplomat to India, and ousted the High Commissioner of India to Pakistan. Northern India and Pakistan to some degree overlap in territories of specific socioeconomic, shared lingua franca (for the most part Punjabi and Hindustani).

Secondly, South Asia, an unpredictable and flimsy region, has been seeing a heightening in military and atomic competition, fairly eclipsed by the justifiable feelings of trepidation of an atomic-weapons contest in the Middle East. This component of the world, as indicated by experts, is quickly turning into a race for atomic matchless quality among three powers - India, Pakistan and China (which is not termed as South Asia; the nation offers fringes with the two India and Pakistan). This competition according to numerous investigators is hazardous in itself however is made considerably increasingly complex by the shared doubts and verifiable ill wills that bother the region.

Thirdly, the Kashmir strife is a regional clash essentially between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir area. The contention began after the segmenting of India in 1947 as a disagreement regarding the previous province of Jammu and Kashmir and swelled into three wars among India and Pakistan and a few other armed engagements. China has likewise been associated with the contention in an outsider job.

Human-rights misuses, for example, extrajudicial killings and assaults have been submitted by Indian military in Kashmir. Freedom fighters have also made the situation extreme. Crimes by state forces are done inside Kashmir Valley, which is the area of the present conflict. More awfully, in August 2019, as Home Minister Amit Shah of India told parliament, a declaration annulling Article 370 of the constitution that gave a proportion of self-rule to the Muslim-larger part Himalayan area had been marked by president and measure, came into power.

Under such circumstances, the Kashmir dispute has turned into the beginner of the nuclear war that will engage the peace of the whole world. Therefore, the utmost attempts from the global community are required to defuse the hazards of the said volcanic situation.
