In early March, a white sport utility vehicle, crammed with a group of tourists from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the United States, left the famous Kashmiri ski resort of Gulmarg well after dark. As the vehicle sped toward Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, the driver, Bashir, gripped the steering wheel and nervously scanned the road ahead.
Given the recent demonstrations by Kashmiris who were protesting the hanging of Muhammad Afzal, a native of the region who was sentenced to death for his role in the Indian Parliament attacks in 2001, traveling by night was the best way to avoid encountering stone-throwing mobs, angry protesters and the large deployment of police and paramilitary troops. Mr. Bashir, who goes by one name, flashed his headlights to signal at the incoming cars, then slowed down to see if they’d stop with any news of what lay ahead.
A stocky Kashmiri man in his mid-30s, Mr. Bashir has served as a driver for the Indian Army for over 10 years. He recalled the days he spent trying to dodge bullets in more than two decades of conflict between India and Pakistan over control of Kashmir. For him, the stone throwers were just another day on the job.
