Kashmir is a space which has been highly politicised throughout the course of history, especially since 1947. It has been viewed and analysed widely through a political lens. The cultural attributes have also been coloured in political stigma, which has created widespread negativity towards the overall aspect of the Kashmir issue. This study aims to study Kashmiriyat through the lens of culture and ordinary people of Kashmir and aims to analyse Article 370 through a cultural perspective and what place it holds in the broader discourse of Kashmiriyat.
