This book has explored how Kashmiri refugees have shaped the organization of violence in the Jammu and Kashmir State. It has charted the history and a historicity of how people displaced within and from the former Princely State of Jammu and Kashmir have made claims on political belonging grounded in rights rather than in culture. It has examined how Muslim refugees from Jammu and Kashmir drew on the Islamicate concept of hijarat to make sense of their experiences, and how muhājirs used their displacement experiences as a source of moral and social worth by cultivating a domestic sphere, nurturing the family, and working to reestablish the confessional community. This concluding chapter discusses the significance of the emergence of a social distinction between mujāhids and jihādīs, along with the interrelationships among deterritorialized jihād, body sovereignty, and political Islam.

Keywords:   jihād, Kashmiri refugee, Jammu and Kashmir State, hijarat, muhājirs, displacement, mujāhids, jihādīs, body sovereignty, political Islam
