  Nonviolence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nonviolence (or non-violence) is a set of assumptions about morality, power and conflict that leads its proponents to reject the use of violence in efforts to attain social or political goals.
Leon Trotsky, Frantz Fanon, and Malcolm X were fervent critics of nonviolence, arguing variously that nonviolence and pacifism are an attempt to impose the morals of the bourgeoisie upon the proletariat, that violence is a necessary accompaniment to revolutionary change, or that the right to self-defence is fundamental.
The specific criticism that nonviolence is a form of passivity can be countered by noting that successful nonviolent campaigns have often centred around actively depriving a ruling regime of financial income (as in Gandhi's breaking of the salt tax), or the cooperation necessary to run industrial infrastructure.

 Kroc Institute : Policy Brief #8 - Kashmir and the "War on Terrorism"
In accounts by recent scholars, the chronology of events appears to be that first, Indian troops and arms were sent to Kashmir, and subsequently, seeing which way the wind was blowing, Maharaja Hari Singh signed the Instrument of Accession to India.
Key Western scholars such as Alistair Lamb, long a leading figure in Kashmir studies, changed their views on Kashmir subsequent to consideration of the new documents and now suggest that the accession to India was not legitimate in terms of international law.
Policy makers in the United States and the global community, recognizing that there is dissension among scholars as to the ultimate legal status of Kashmir, should push Pakistan and India to refrain from using the rhetoric of legitimacy or illegitimacy in bolstering their current claims to Kashmir.
