Truth and Reconciliation Commission for J&K

mind map

The proposed Truth and Reconciliation Commission for Jammu and Kashmir, recommended by Supreme Court Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul in December 2023, aims to investigate human rights violations in the region since the 1980s. This initiative, rooted in the need for healing and addressing inter-generational trauma, seeks to document abuses by both state and non-state actors and foster reconciliation. Inspired by South Africa’s model, the commission is envisioned to operate through dialogue, allowing diverse viewpoints, and following a humanized and personalized process. The commission’s formation is seen as a crucial step towards acknowledging past sufferings, promoting transparency, and rebuilding trust among communities affected by long-standing conflicts in the region.
