A classic case of how influence operatives such as Mohsin Dawar are allowed to gain a voice in #Pakistan.

How our media regulators such as @reportpemra & @pid_gov’s weak vetting processes allow such elements to gain a public voice.

I present to you Veengas Yasmeen:

/1
She’s been peddling seditious propaganda for a long time, with sinister links to #Indian media establishment, recently she was laying low to begin a Sindhi/English News Service

Now, her ‘NONPROFIT’ network is being built to recruit local journalists (operatives) in #Pakistan
/2
Her timeline was cleared of many tweets, when she applied for a news outlet license.
However there are ways to find those posts.
How much more obvious do you have to be in your anti-#Pakistan propaganda for the media regulators to take notice?

As per chatter in high-level bureaucratic circles GoI is in talks with foreign multinational corporations for development of Srinagar-Jammu Industrial Corridor, including Chinese ones. A major Kashmir Development Summit slated to be organised soon with global investors lined-up.
Meanwhile discussions are also underway for a possible deployment of American missiles in Kashmir - possibly Ladakh. The move already rejected by Australians.

Washington withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces INF Treaty, the sametime military was deployed in Kashmir
Both Australia and South Korea have categorically rejected US demand for the deployment of American ground-based missiles on their soil.

Hence, India is on the cards now.

#CPEC is the backbone of #Pakistan's Grand Strategy. Enemies are keen to foment trouble in #Balochistan to sabotage the project.
A hike in terror attacks has been witnessed in the past months in Balochistan especially in areas in proximity to #Gwadar which is part of #Sabotage.
Killings of #Hazara Shias in Balochistan helps the enemy kill two birds with a stone.
1. It causes trouble in Balochistan,
2. It decreses confidence of Shias in the state of #Pakistan and leads to anger and frustration in Gilgit Baltistan, The Critical province in #CPEC.

#Rouhani invites #Japan to invest in #Chabahar. Interesting how #Iran is bringing countries that have policy issues with #China to get in the port to counter #CPEC/#Gwadar.
This should not surprise anyone. This is a consistent policy of involving states with issues with #China like #India/#US/#Japan to counter #CPEC/#Gwadar.
This is why it is important that #Pakistan engages #Trump Admin and convinces it that waiver on #Chabahar to #India/#Iran not in #US interest. It strengthens lobbies in #Afghanistan opposed to Trump peace plan.

Organized misinformation campaign is underway inside #Pakistan agst economic deals with #IMF+#China+#KSA+#UAE. It seeks to fail the economy by paralyzing govt decision making. Campaign originates from elements/sources known to coordinate on issues of interest to regional actors.
This campaign disguises itself as oversight of Govt deals but it is actually focused on disinformation, demoralization, & generating an overall environment of uncertainty to paralyze Govt & State. This campaign has all the hallmarks of information operations & is not dissimilar
to earlier campaigns on #Yemen #IMCTC #KSA #Turkey #US #CPEC & #China. A key objective in these campaigns has been to paralyze the State & confuse public opinion to facilitate damage to #Pakistan's strategic interests through indecision & chaos. IMF deal is being presented as

With #US sanctions on #Iran, this is the time for #Pakistan to squeeze #Tehran on #IRGC's destabilization inside Pak+alliance with #India in #Afghanistan+#Chabahar. #Islamabad should leverage IRGC's use of Pakistani markets/ports for smuggling and evading
#US sanctions. #Pakistan should not look away this time as it did during #Iran-#Iraq war in 80s when #IRGC used Pak facilities to dodge sanctions. Let's remember how the Pasdaran, who are #India's allies in Iran, bluntly threw Dr AQ Khan under the bus in 2003 creating the biggest
crisis for #Pakistan's nuclear program, and how #Iran joined #India diplomats in openly lobbying #China to end #CPEC part of #BRI bcz "#Balochistan is not safe" while sponsoring terrorism to ensure #Beijing changes its mind. This is the moment to isolate

#OrmaraMassacre in #Balochistan & #Iran's role in terrorism in #Pakistan, in pursuance of a joint strategic project with #India. /1

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi
Two days before the emergence of #Iran's role in #Ormara attack, #Karachi police busted an #Iranian terror cell assigned to destabilize #Pakistan's business hub. /2
@AQpk

The busting of #Iran-backed #Karachi cell & role in #Ormara attack shows #Tehran has not stopped its anti-#Pakistan activities after the busting of #ChabaharTerrorNetwork, a joint project with #India, in 2015. /3

Local authorities in #Pakistan are not doing a good job protecting #Pakistani #Hazara population in #Quetta #Balochistan but the complex geopolitics involved in this story are terrifying. /1

There is a compelling case for categorizing attacks on #Hazara as acts of terrorism & war, not only sectarianism. #Pakistani Hazara & the State are embroiled in a complex situation that demands recognition & full disclosure. /2

#Pakistan law enforcement has eliminated key anti-#Shia extremist #Sunni militants in #Balochistan+#Punjab since 2015, & worked with #US & #Afghanistan to close #LeJ/#TTP/#BLA terror camps (involved in sectarian killings as part of a wider anti-Pak war)./3

A detailed thread on Pakistan's debt and Foreign exchange reserves. #NayaPakistan is on the way becoming #NayaPaisaPakistan
In August 2018, foreign exchange reserves with the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) stood at $10bn. Pak borrowed $3bn from SaudiArabia and $2bn from UAE. As of March 8, 2019, foreign exchange reserves with the SBP stood at $8bn. Still they are in talks with IMF to get $12bn more.
By Jan2019, the accumulated stock of circular debt had soared to Rs1.4 trillion. For the record, the PTI govt added Rs260billion in 137 days. The PTI govt is adding Rs2bn a day every day of the year (a few years ago, the same figure was Rs1bn a day). ((Rs is PKR currency))

#ModiXisummit
Folks, I don’t have time to write an article, so here’s my two-cents on the upcoming #ModiXisummit (informal) in Wuhan. I’m seeing a lot of brouhaha being played by the Indian media, think-tankies regarding the “reset”, “thaw” in relations.
1)The meeting draws on the similar format of reset and informal meets organised by Xi for Obama in 2013 and the Mar-a-lago summit hosted for Xi by Trump last year. Both have failed to bring any kind of reset. Instead there is a trade war looming between China and USA now
2)no formal/informal talks can belie the deep distrust both India and China have for each other, deeply drilled through history and contemporary strategic realities. The summit, while attempting “reset” after Doklam might at best be talking shop, garden walks and photo-ops
