Prime Minister Manmohan Singh named internal conflict the greatest threat to Indian national security. India’s many fractured ethnic groups and growing economic disparity create ripe ground for conflict. The Indian national government generally divides major conflicts into three major geographic arenas: the ongoing conflict over Jammu and Kashmir; Naxalite rebellions in the central corridor and militant movements in the Northeast. While conflict between the country’s Hindu nationalists and Muslim minority has remained relatively dormant in the last few years, tension persists. Small-scale conflicts across India—both old and new—continue and occasionally flare up in violence. Of central concern is the growing disparity between the country’s newly minted haves and the majority have nots. Many believe this increasing gap is of utmost concern for the entire nation. In this section, IndiaUnheard Community Correspondents Report on conflict.
