A few thoughts on the third anniversary of the revocation of #Article370 in Kashmir: militancy is at its lowest ebb. Every house, every shop in South Kashmir is on excel sheet of SFs. Every militant movement is tracked, every OGW is known. Who he meets, what he does is tracked
But isolated terror attacks cannot be prevented all time. For example, two days ago, SFs in Pulwama were tracking new OGWs who they thought might get active. One of them did last evening, causing one death of a labourer by hand-grenade attack
The Islamist deep state is cautious and a little nervous of being identified. There is nervousness about dismissal from jobs, about attaching of property, about NIA raids. However, the deep state is still intact and very little has been done to dismantle it

On one hand,we are celebrating birth anniversary of Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar ji,who was against the inclusion of #Article370 granting special status to Jammu & Kashmir.

But look what is being said going against the wishes&values of Dr.Ambedkar ji!…
And we’ve been hearing various statements by @NCPspeaks President @PawarSpeaks ji on #TheKashmiriFiles & it’s not surprising at all.
In fact,they are totally in line with NCP’s decades old track record of appeasement policy & politics and polarising the society on communal basis.
Here’s a recent example of what was said by him when his own Minister @nawabmalikncp got arrested for money-laundering linked with the activities of underworld criminal Dawood Ibrahim.…

Never new I would meet such ignorant parents. Atleast 10 parents had brought their 2-8 year old kids to watch Kashmir files. The movie clearly has a 18+ A certificate. Not a 14UA.

Honest Review.

I was pleasantly surprised by how effective the movie was in conveying what it started out doing. I had a very low bar after Tashkent files.
Some would take umbrage to the Loud direction at times. Personally I think that was @vivekagnihotri s choice and overall the Loudness has the desired effect.

Chinmay Mandlekar is the actor who has played the role of terrorist JKLF Chief Yasin Malik & JKLF leader Bitta Karate aka Farooq Ahmed Dar in one character so real.

Thread on Bitta Karate & Yasin Malik

1/8 ImageImageImage
1989 in Kashmir, Yasin Malik killed Justice Neelkanth Ganju, in 1989 he kidnapped Rubaiya Sayeed. He killed 4 Indian Airforce officers & 2 women in 1989 , he wounded 40 ppl in 1990 but considered Youth Icon under UPA government Video of his confession
The question is what were the intentions of India Today in projecting Yasin Malik as youth icon in youth conclave and justifying the genocide of pandits by Madam Barkha Dutt under the pretext of economic dominance of pandits in kashmir.

What's .@narendramodi made of?In the morning he made a tough announcement resulting in his biggest personal loss of face so far,& in the evening he is in Jhansi, facing the crowd calmly.
can’t help admire the man’s equanimity & stoicism in the face of victory and defeat alike.
I was disappointed when Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) decided to form a govt with Mehbooba Mufti in JnK, but then, #Article370 was repealed.

I was disappointed when Pulwama happened, but then, the surgical strikes happened. This time too, I will keep calm and trust Modi...(3)
because no matter how big is MY disappointment, I appreciate the @PMOIndia leading from the front and making the announcement himself, rather than giving out a press release or leave the job to the minister for agriculture.

Jai Hind.🇮🇳

An internal official note of @CPIMKerala under the heading 'minority communalism' says "efforts are on to lure educated young women into extremism in professional colleges in Kerala" In simple words "Islamist radicalization"! Has #Kerala govt finally woken up to an old reality? Image
For years #Kerala's professional college campuses have been hot-beds of #radicalisation! From Popular Front to off-shoots such as Campus Front & SDPI the narrative has been wonderfully woven around dalit-muslim upliftment which a sure attraction for the educated thinking student!
Students of dental, medical & engineering self financing colleges have been the target! Once a bridge is laid highlighting social issues the more virulent narratives are fed slowly ranging from claims of Islamophobia to alleged persecution of Muslims in India & abroad!

श्रीमान @rautsanjay61 विचारतायत की, नेहरूंशी वैर का? राऊतांनी विचारलेल्या प्रश्नाचे उत्तर मी या थ्रेडमध्ये देतोय,
नेहरूंनी त्यांच्या कारकीर्दीत अभिव्यक्ती स्वातंत्र्याची आणि लोकशाही मूल्यांची अनेकदा गळचेपी केली. त्याची ही काही उदाहरणे (१/n)
नेहरूंनी केंद्रीय कायदामंत्री #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांना डावलून गोपालस्वामी अय्यंगार यांच्या हातून कलम ३७०चा मसुदा तयार करून घेतला आणि लोकसभेत बळजबरीने मंजूरही करून घेतला. देशाच्या कायदामंत्र्याला डावलून घटनादुरुस्ती झाल्याची ही भारतातली एकमेव घटना आहे. (२/n)
कलम ३७० हे भारत आणि भारतीयांवर अन्याय करणारे आहे असे #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांचे ठाम मत होते. कारण, नेहरूंनी जम्मू-काश्मीर विधानसभेला अमर्याद अधिकार देऊ केले होते. (३/n)

#Thread | Today marks two years since the central government abrogated Kashmir’s special status by reading down #Article370 of the Constitution.

In “State Subjects,” The Caravan featured a collection of voices from various parts of the erstwhile state:
Replug | Kargil is closer to Srinagar than it is to Leh. Most of the region’s life essentials—from groceries to daily supplies—come from Kashmir. The people of Kargil have always endorsed the unity of the state.

Mustafa Haji writes. #Article370
Replug | Our union territory would have been welcome by everyone if the government had brought it in a democratic way, via dialogue. How will we justify this to our future generations?

#Article370 | Today marks two years since the Indian government abrogated Kashmir’s special status by reading down Article 370 of the Constitution.

The Caravan’s ground reports from #Kashmir:
“The bottom line is that they cannot accept it and swallow that there is a Muslim-majority state in India. So, they want to change the demography of the state,” Arif said.

Praveen Donthi’s dispatch from August 2019:
Archives | “Yahan kisiko bhool hai ki is qaum ko daba liya hai”—Some people here have the wrong impression that they have silenced this community, Abdul Qadir Bhat Pathan said. “There is a lava building here. It will explode like a bomb one day.”

Ideologically speaking, till now West has looked upon India as a country with an imposed Western democracy, a democracy that requires oversight by the West, to make sure India lives up to the liberal democratic ideals as perceived by the West.
West doesn't see India with an own democratic culture as West sees democracy itself as a Western (Greek) invention.

In this regard, it was important that on Feb 8th, 2021, Modi gave this clarification in Indian Parliament.

Check: @ 2:25

PM Modi said, "Our democracy is not a western institution. It's a human institution. India's history is filled with examples of democratic institutions. We find mention of 81 democracies in ancient India."…

Deradicalisation of #Kashmir Youth, need of the hour. #Thread.

The valley has been bearing the brunt of radicalisation that has the potential to destroy the future generation of #Kashmir. Its a ticking time bomb that needs to be addressed at the earliest.
The gradual erosion of #Sufism is an indicator of the growing radicalisation in #Kashmir. Sufism faces a stiff competition from the Wahhabi brand of Islam as preached in Saudi Arabia & other parts of the world.
Sufi shrines are being burnt and there has hardly been any public outcry regarding the same, indicating the waning influence of the Hanafis. With the abundance of Saudi money, Wahhabi followers are gradually taking over Hanafi masjids in the valley.

There is a disturbing tendency among groups in the diaspora to religionize what are fundamentally political reactions to political actions. This religionizing creates a binary where every political actor & policy is necessarily pro-x or anti-y. 1/n
In this paradigm, abrogation #Article370 is anti-Muslim ignoring KP's and its anti-terror ramification. #CAA a pro-persecuted minority amnesty law is anti-Muslim, and the protests glorified. Now the #FarmersBill is portrayed as a anti-Sikh and protests romanticized. 2/
The protests are, in fact, merging, as anti-CAA #Dadi & a Dalit political party head join the farmers. But when roads & highways are blocked for months on end, at some point, commuters will demand roads are opened. But the religionized context-artificially constructed-means 3/

Rupa, you make my point when you & media orthodoxy conflate Hindu nationalism with Modi, hence India. Ergo, supporting US-India ties (nuclear deal, defense coop) & Indian policies=Hindu nationalism, & any policy disfavored by the ecosystem=anti-Muslim. (thread)
@HinduAmerican was founded in 2003 and promoted U.S-India ties throughout MMS govt.

@HinduAmerican believes that free speech, religious liberty & equality are principles that are good for Hindus in America and around the world are good for all people regardless of faith or none.
Is supporting U.S.-India ties, abrogation #Article370 to fight cross-border terror & promote KP resettlement, amnesty for religious minorities seeking refuge or end to govt. control of temples nationalism or parochial?

Why circumscribe freedom of religion issues as nationalism?

The unholy alliance of #GupkarDeclaration is a last-ditch effort by the fading “Abdullahs & Muftis” to stay relevant in this #NayaKashmir by playing at what they know best – a politics of hate, fear & shady deals.
A #thread.
The recent outrageous statement from #MehboobaMufti claiming she wont hoist Tricolor until the J&K flag in allowed, just shows how poisonous their politics is for #Jammu & #Kashmir.
These are the same leaders of NC & PDP who were often seen throwing muck at each other, but now when they see their “Dukans” shutting down, they have made a shady alliance, such is the nature of politics in #Kashmir.

The corrupt leaders of #Kashmir are now “concerned” for its development:
Recently, Farooq Abdullah remarked that “economic development in J&K can’t be achieved unless Aug 5 decisions are reversed”.
Well Abdullahs were in power for more than 5 decades, but what did we get?
The way #FarooqAbdullah criticises the Govt, one would have thought that he must have been an ace administrator. Well we all know that he presided over a Govt which will go down in the #history as one of the most inefficient and #corrupt Govt.
Who was Sheikh Abdullah? A teacher from Soura. What did Omar Abdullah inherit from his grandfather?
Today Abdullah family owns a house in London, a house in southern France, a house in New Delhi, and a house in Gurgaon, besides the houses at Gupkar road.
