Of all the doomsday theories, one relates to unrestrained nuclear war wrapping up the whole world. Keeping in view of such scenario, the metaphorical Doomsday Clock has been formed and maintained by the members of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists since 1947. As a matter of fact, it represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe in the form of nuclear risk or climate change. The Clock represents the hypothetical global catastrophe as "midnight" and the Bulletin's opinion on how close the world is to a global catastrophe as a number of "minutes" to midnight. The current setting of the Doomsday Clock shows we are two minutes away from the doomsday. The nuclear experts have long branded the subcontinent as one of the world’s likeliest nuclear flashpoints. Even a glance on the world map reveals that geographic location binds a number of nuclear powers in a single chain such as Pakistan, India, China, North Korea, Russia and USA. Hence nuclear spark on one corner may provoke others to join game all over the world. An old English proverb reads nip the evil in the bud. No doubt Pak-India rivalry on Kashmir issue is the evil which must be addressed for the betterment of humanity on planet earth. Former US president Bill Clinton has rightly called Kashmir “the most dangerous place in the world”.
