#BasantPanchami #Jammu
Basant, the Festival of Spring was celebrated with great enthusiasm in the Kingdom of Jammu Kashmir. The rich, the poor, Muslims, Hindus - all wore yellow turbans.
The women dressed in yellow from head to toe, whether they were young or old and all you saw was yellow in all directions.
It was not as if this was done on Royal Orders. People did so because they wanted to celebrate this Festival.

Article 370: A five-Judge Constitution Bench assembles to resume hearing on the batch of petitions challenging abrogation of Article 370.

Senior Counsel Rajeev Dhavan tells the Court he would like this to be excused from arguing today. Dhavan says those Counsel arguing for reference to a larger Bench should argue on the specific point on which they are seeking a reference.

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul agrees with Dhavan and says to the Counsel arguing for reference,

"If you think that this Bench cannot put quietus to the question then argued on the preliminary issue of reference only, not on the substantive questions involved."

ये बात आपको भक्त कभी नहीं बताएंगे कि हिमालय से निकली नदियां और तीनों महा सागरों का निर्माण पण्डित नेहरू ने ही करवाया था। आप ये जानकारी पढ़िए जो मुझे अभी दिव्य ज्ञान से प्राप्त हुई है।
1947 से पहले बहुत सर्दी पड़ती थी और अंग्रेजों के लिए ये मौसम अनुकूल था

#JammuAndKashmir 🇮🇳
लेकिन अंग्रेजों से लोहा ले रहे नेहरू जी को ये अच्छा नहीं लगता था कि उनके देश वासी सर्दी से मर जाएं।
आजादी मिलते ही उन्होंने मिस्र से पिरामिड बनाने वाले कारीगरों को बुलाया और उनको हिमालय बनाने का ठेका दे दिया।
और पहली ही पंच वर्षीय योजना में उन्होंने
अफगानिस्तान से लेकर अरुणाचल तक ऊंचे ऊंचे पहाड़ों का निर्माण करवा दिया था जिन्हें हम आज हिमालय के नाम से जानते हैं। अंध भक्त आपको ये कभी नहीं बताएंगे।
इन पहाड़ों को बनाने के लिए दक्षिण भारत से मिट्टी रेत और पत्थर खोद कर ले जाए गए जिससे वहां बड़े बड़े गड्डे बन गए।

72 years ago, at midnight of 24 Nov 1947, Pakistan attacked Mirpur district after accession of J&K to India.

More than 18000 Hindus and Sikhs were massacred in Mirpur by Pakistan.

Only 3000 of Mirpuris could save themselves to find refuge in Jammu.

Do you know why?

Because Pakistan asked them to put white flags over their houses as a symbol of surrender to Pakistan.

The brave Hindus of Mirpur put red flags over to show that they will not surrender, they will fight for their motherland.

Pakistan Govt made an agreement with Pathan mercenaries, known as “Zen and Zar Agreement ”.

It was agreed that after occupying Mirpur, the cash, property and land would be the share of Pakistan and the captured women would be taken by the Pathans.

@ajitsinghpundir @AartiTikoo @amritabhinder @AmitShah @AdityaRajKaul @majorgauravarya Speaking in the #US House of Representatives, Olson said that #Article370 was a temporary provision, a stock gap measure that was forcing the people of #JammuAndKashmir for the past 70 years to live under laws different from the rest of India.
@ajitsinghpundir @AartiTikoo @amritabhinder @AmitShah @AdityaRajKaul @majorgauravarya Olson also tweeted his speech and said, "He spoke to stand with Indian Prime Minister #NarendraModi as he works to bring peace to the region, expand democracy and unite the people of #JammuAndKashmir with the greater Indian community."

The plan to invade the Riyasat of #JammuAndKashmir wasn't born in #Lahore but in the residence of #Jinnah at #Aurangzeb road #NewDelhi . Here in the spring of 1947 Col. Akbar Khan & some #Muslim officers of the #British #Indian #Army hatched this plot .
It was only in October 1947 that Maj. Onkar Singh Kalkat of the Bannu Brigade #PakistanArmy who had not yet been repatriated to #India found files marked Operation Gulmarg Secret while looking for some other documents in the office of Brigadier Murray at NWFP.
Even though he was nearly arrested & sent to #Lahore , Maj.Onkar somehow made it out to #NewDelhi & told the #IndianArmy top brass about the file he had sern which detailed an invasion of #JammuKashmir by tribesmen. He wasn't taken seriously by the Brass .

👉Amit Shah s idea of New India is inspired heavily by the reality TV show #BiggBoss 👈
👉He wants to impose Hindi all over India👈
👉He wants to impose the extremely flawed #NRC in the entire country without any idea how he ll make it genuine n fool proof👈
👉He wants no one to have any privacy👈
👉He criticizes the multiparty system of India which forms the core of indian
democratic system👈
👉The way he has locked down ppl of #JammuAndKashmir after abrogation of #Article370 also hints the same.👈
👽He Makes a Big House ~ Detention Center

👽He detains anyone he wants to inside the house

👽He is cruel yet justifies what he does

👽He decides what slaves can take inside the house and what not

👽Everyone is his slave.

Lessons for India
From the UK's @UKSupremeCourt judgement today in the case of R v Prime Minister (On appeals from: [2019] EWHC 2381 (QB) and [2019] CSIH 49).
In a landmark Judgement today, 11 Justices ruled unanimously that Prime Minister @BorisJohnson had acted unlawfully..
when he advised the Queen to prorogue Parliament for a period of 6 weeks from a date betn 9-12 Sep to 14 Oct 2019.
This is a landmark judgement and the fact that it is unanimous lends further to its weight. It led immediately to calls to @BorisJohnson to 'consider his position'
That phrase is code for "Resign!". Most Constitutional experts agree that under its unwritten Constitution the British Prime Minister wields great power - far more than say the US President. But #BoJo has been stymied ever since he became PM.
