Welcome to another week of daily threads on Europe's war. Updated throughout the day (and night) every single day.

It's Day 481 of #Russia's illegal full invasion of #Ukraine.

To review Sunday's thread, click here.
I tempted fate by saying I was hoping for sleep. Soon enough alarms were sounding in the south of #Ukraine.

Suspected cruise missiles launched from #Russia's Black Sea Fleet, and #Odesa has reported explosions. Hopefully it's just air defence.

Good news is just coming in from #Odesa (RU: #Odessa) where it seems to be quiet now.

There were reported to be three targets - all three may have been shot down. I'm not hearing of damage yet.

cost overruns,
environmental damage,
funding issues,
repeated delays,
lack of progress,
and poor quality of development.

3. According to our investigation, 62.8% of the countries that have joined the #BRI are #developing countries, while around 17% are #developed countries.

This suggests that the BRI is primarily focused on developing countries.

1. #Bangladesh has great respect for the late Senator Edward Kennedy. Akku Chowdhury, founder and director of Bangladesh’s Liberation War Museum, speaking to CNN on 27 August 2009:
2. “In 1971, there were very few leaders from the so-called free world who were paying any attention to what was going on in Bangladesh. And for Ted Kennedy to come forward and to personally visit, the impact was huge. And that’s one thing Bangladeshis have always remembered.”
3. After visiting Bengali refugees in India, he issued a scathing report to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Refugees. The report, “Crisis in South Asia,” spoke of “one of the most appalling tides of human misery in modern times.” Further:

On this day in #1971, President Yahya Khan ordered the Operation Search Light in #EastPakistan. What were the possible reasons behind it? Let us delve into it in this 🧵

@albd1971 @BDMOFA
After President Yahya Khan had postponed the national assembly session scheduled to be held on March 3, 1971, under the pressure of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, it had disastrous consequences.
Between March 2 and March 26 (the day on which military action was initiated by President Yahya Khan) in East Pakistan, there was killing, burning, looting, ambushing, brickbatting and molestation of non Bengalis by the militants of Awami League.

3 elements of Pakistan's policy in #Bangladesh (E. Pakistan):
* Rule Bengalis - they are unreliable.
* Islamize the masses - make a strong religious bond with W. Pakistan.
* Seize #Hindu property - provide a golden carrot to win over the under privileged Muslim middle-class.

#Bangladesh - 1971 - RAPE was a strategic policy of Pakistan army that the Imams & Mullahs supported. A West Pakistan fatwa asserted that women taken from #Hindus could be considered war booty. Rapes of Hindu women aimed to destroy their FAITH, SOCIAL POSITION & SELF-ESTEEM.

#Bangladesh - 1971 - The Butcher of Balochistan, General Tikka Khan, ordered his soldiers to impregnate as many Bengali women as they could so there would be a whole generation of children in East Pakistan that would be born with the blood from the West.

🧵"China wants peace" is too simplistic a narrative.

Weeks before the #China-brokered deal b/w #Iran & #SaudiArabia was announced, Beijing sent its top envoy, Deng Xijun, to northern #Myanmar to meet top ethnic rebel groups & convince them to sign ceasefire deals with the junta.
And last week, Xijun travelled to Nay Pyi Taw to meet the coup leader, Min Aung Hlaing. Beijing wants to tell the US (which has sanctioned "non-lethal" aid to the democratic resistance) that it has more access in Burmese power corridors.…
For Xi's China, "peace" in #Myanmar only means ceasefire between a rogue junta & powerful ethnic rebel groups that have sway over the Myanmar-China border regions. Beijing wants them to stop fighting so that it can resume work on its own projects.

Ahead of China, Vietnam, #Bangladesh, and #India - #Pakistan had been one of the top performers growing 6% per annum from 1947- 1990 economically. 1991 onwards, weak governance and short-term stability led #Pakistan’s economy to “Boom and Bust”.
[1] ImageImage
Bhutto’s bureaucratic reforms led to the destruction of governance, weak civil institutions, and the promotion of mega-corruption during institutional atrophy.
During that period, analysts argued that country’s poor performance is due to Garrison state syndrome (military domination), on the contrary, Pak’s economic performance during military rule had been better. Defense expenditure ratio to GDP was higher in the first 40 years.

Women’s Movements in South Asian Countries - A 🧵

Movements of women's rights in #SouthAsia can be traced on junctures of striving for justice in social issues & handling external (often post-colonial) influences.

In #India, it was 1980 when the Mathura rape case propelled an anti-rape feminist-led movement that remains the biggest wave till today.

But the current wave spreads beyond protection against sexual violence, to economic rights and has taken up significant digital space.

In #Pakistan, Women Action Forum (WAF) remained the face of women’s movement through 1980s & beyond.

A fresh start came about in 2018 when yearly demonstration called ‘Aurat March’ surfaced. Its momentum has equally met with backlash from different segments of society.
