Human rights are moral principles or norms which describe certain standards of human behaviour, andare regularly protected as legal rights in municipal and international law. Human rights abuses in the Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir state are an ongoing issue. The abuses range from mass killings, enforced disappearances, torture, rape and sexual abuse to political repression and suppression of freedom of speech. The impact of conflict is experienced by people of all ages who suffer displacement, loss of home and property, loss or involuntary disappearances of close relatives, poverty and family separation and disintegration. Violence or the threat of physical violence seems to have had a significant effect on the mental health of people in this region. It led to social disorder, disorganization, educational backwardness, physical and mental health deterioration, mass psychological depression, mass humiliation and extreme helplessness and the degenerated cultural aggression. The focus of the present paper is on the negative impact that violence have on Kashmiri youth.
