Kashmir Pemier League: How business mafia has captured Kashmir cause
Some influential Pakistani & Kashmiri elements who have been making profits out of the blood of Kashmiri people have now solicited services of the Kashmir Premier League (KPL) to enhance their intakes.
For decades these elements have built fortunes out of Kashmir Valley’s blinded children, its sighing and groaning mothers, its devastated widows and orphans and its tortured men, old and young, who go around hiding blood marks on their bodies hidden under their garments.
As elsewhere in the corporate world, this business has also evolved over time, identifying new opportunities along the way and creating relevant tools to exploit them. The establishment of the Kashmir Premier League in 2021 was one such tool.

(A REALLY short one!)

So #Kashmir is trending once again in the Land of the Pure today!
I thought I must share / replug some thoughts tweeted over the past few years in this context.
Here goes!
Firstly, it must be really disappointing for the 'Powers That Be' in Pakistan (Hint: They wear brown pants and run really fast!) to see that Kashmir is not the Top trend!

But then the current Propagandu-in-Chief hardly has the charisma of his predecessor, Shri Ghafoora Ji!
Heck, instead of the lame hashtag (#Kashmir), Ghafoora had managed to get 'Martial' hashtags trending when India had 'dared to' scrap Artical 370!
(Disclaimer: I know the correct spelling of Article. But this is not how the Brown Panted Propagandu-in-Chief prefers to spell it 😂)

#Kashmir ! #Article370 ! #ShiningJammuKashmir !#LokSabha ! #TirangaAtLalChowk !

Transitional and Special Provision” that grants the state of Jammu and Kashmir a special autonomous status within the Indian union

# What are the provisions of Article 370?

Today's #terrorist attack on civilians in #Pulwama has led to death of 1 & injuries to 2.
All of them were non local workers.
It was a grenade attack.
Photo- that's a probably Grenade splinter injury (an injured Civilian)
No Terror tanzeem has claimed the attack as of now. Image
ULF has taken the responsibility of #Pulwama attack.
Coward & new age jihadis with 0 training attacking Civilians and then releasing a statement which is nothing less than a Bollywood script type chest thumping.
@KashmirPolice is there even any categorised Terrorist Umar Wani?
Seeing today's Social Media blitzkrieg of Terrorists, I seriously doubt if the ULF exists as any FORMAL terror Organization.
They might be some Radicalised Terror Interns who might be taking responsibility of attacks executed by TRF/PAFF/LeT/JeM/HuM etc.

2nd #terror attack in #Kashmir region in last 3 days.
A #Police party was fired upon by terrorists in Alochibagh area of Srinagar. No casualties reported.
📷- in local news reports ImageImage
It's only by God's grace that we don't have any casualties.
Police party retaliated with restraint (built up area).
No confirmation on the Terror Tanzeem involved. Most probably local #Terrorists
#TheResistanceFront has taken the responsibility of the attack. They have claimed to have attacked a 'CARGO UNIT' of JKP who were travelling in a private vehicle.
If that's the case then they won't survive for long. As per TRF, CARGO is notorious. They r quite fearful of CARGO.

Frequent high-speed internet shutdowns, cuts in telephone communication, curfews and the safety of employees are some of the things affecting small businesses in Kashmir.

#Kashmir #LetTheNetWork…
SMEs that focus on e-commerce and rely on online platforms for marketing and advertising face crippling difficulties because of the frequent internet cuts, especially when high-speed internet connections are suspended.

#InternetShutdown #KeepItOn
This leads to a huge decline in sales. Many have even had to change their business model to survive. This has been a problem for the people of Kashmir since 2012 when the first recorded #InternetShutdown happened.
Read 5 tweets
On August 4, 2019, the government suspended landline, mobile and internet services in Kashmir. The internet shutdown lasted 552 days, until February 6, 2021, making it among the longest communications blackouts ever imposed in a democracy.
During most of the shutdown, the internet could only be used in a government-run centre, and internet access was only permitted for some government-approved websites, excluding many social media sites.

#Kashmir #InternetShutdowns #KeepItOn
Access to 4G was only restored after 552 days of partial or no internet access, greatly hindering journalists’ ability to access and share information for months.
The communication shutdown resulted in severe restrictions on press freedom.

مرتند سورج مندر (اننت ناگ، سرینگر کشمیر)
Martand Sun Temple (Anantnag, Kashmir)___8th AD
اننت ناگ (بھارتی کشمیر) میں واقع مرتند سورج مندر جو آٹھویں صدی کی سناتنی تہذیب (Sanatani Civilization) کاگڑھ تھا، کو وادئ کشمیرکی ٹاپ پر تعمیر کیاگیا جوکلاسک کشمیری طرزِتعمیر
کا نمونہ تھا۔
سورج مندر کی وجہ شہرت اس کا گندھارا، گپت اور چینی طرزتعمیر کا کلاسک اورجاذب نظر امتزاج ھے۔
یہ ھندو مندر سوریادیو (Suryadev) کے نام سے منسوب تھاجسے "مرتند" کہا جاتا تھا۔ سناتنی تہذیب دراصل ایک ایساھندو عقیدہ (Hindi Cult)تھا جنکی تعلیمات (Teachings) خالصتاً بھگوت گیتا
رامائن، اپنشد، رگ وید سے مشروط تھیں گویا اس عقیدے کی بنیاد ہی قدیم مذہبی کتب کی تحریروں پرمشتمل تھی۔
سورج مندر کو 15ویں صدی میں اسلام کے نام پر ایک صوفی تبلیغ کار محمد حمدانی کے کہنےپر کشمیری سلطان اسکندرشاہ میر نے تباہ کر دیاتھا۔
باقی ماندہ مندر زلزلوں اوروقت کی دھول سےمتاثرھوا۔

Thread: Danger of free-pass to Muslim fundamentalists, by journalists.

On the day Rahul Bhat was shot dead in Kashmir (in series of Hindu killings), #WashingtonPost instead published a column- "Muslims fear the worst".

Infuriating deflection but pattern did not surprise.
After Art 370 abrog in 2019, despite no mass violence nor civilian killings, NYT published, "Inside Kashmir, a living hell" + Melodrama column by Arundhati Roy.

Deliberate discourse served to global audience by ignoring ground reality of Jihadism & Pak-funded radicalisation.
Recently, some "ground reports" on Kashmiri Pandits exposed govt failure & bureaucracy incompetence. Fair pt.

But smartly edited-out real details: Who is killing & to send wht msg? Who does a fleeing minority fear around them?

Understand between their quotes, don't just pen it.

Jammu and Kashmir High Court has taken cognizance on a letter petition against the
killing of #ReligiousMinorities living in #KashmirValley who are becoming victim of #Terrorism and failure of UT / Central Administration.
The bench initiated proceedings on the basis of a letter petition written to the Chief Justice of J&K High Court stating, nearly twelve attacks have been done on
local #ReligiousMinorities living in #KashmirValley apart from those who
came to #Kashmir for their bread, butter.
The letter submitted by @KPSSamiti through its President Sanjay K Tickoo stated that "the #KashmiriPandits/ Hindus want to leave #KashmirValley
but the Government is not allowing them to leave which can be gathered from
the press/ news reports and social media statements."

Kashmir King who killed Sri Lanka King in 7th century BCE
Mihirakula, son of Vasukula ruled Kashmir between 704-634 BCE and belonged to Gonanda Dynasty.
Indian historians have wrongly identified him as Huna (Mongol) king and son of Toramana.
Infact, Toramana was twin brother of Hiranya, who ruled Kashmir between 16 BCE – 14 CE. Both brothers ruled alternate years before Hiranya got Toramana arrested. Toramana’s son was Pravarasena-II, who ruled between 19-79 CE.
Mihirakula was only son of Vasukula and he developed a passion for war, physical training since childhood.
Vasukula understood intentions of his son, kept himself under house arrest for 10 days and starved to death. During these 10 days, Mihirakula slowly took over the

“I stopped eating rice the day I learnt how much water it takes to harvest a kilogram of paddy.” Sunderlal Bahuguna thus spoke of #carbonfootprint decades before we even started using the term. He could see a looming #climatecrisis like no one else of his time did. 1/4 Image

May 21, 1991: Most people I know, and who are in my age group, remember vividly where he or she was and what he or she was doing because of the shocking news of #RajivGandhi's assassination. If it didn't happen, remember, #DMK would have continued in power in #Tamilnadu.
The next #Tamilnadu election would have been in 1994. There would have been an #AIADMK for sure, but not #Jayalalithaa's servile party. In fact, I doubt if she would have been this important at all. The triumvirates who protected J from harm would have been very powerful too

The movie is an attempt to fan the hatred against a minority community in #India by #BJP & #RSS

यह फिल्म भाजपा और आरएसएस द्वारा भारत में अल्पसंख्यक समुदाय के खिलाफ नफरत फैलाने का एक प्रयास है
कश्मीर फाइल्स मुसलमानों के खिलाफ हिंसा भड़का रही है, इसलिए फिल्म बोर्ड, मूवी सिनेमा और स्ट्रीमिंग ऐप्स की नैतिक जिम्मेदारी है कि वे इसे प्रतिबंधित और बहिष्कार करें।
The #Kashmir Files is inciting violence against #Muslims so film boards, movie cinemas and streaming apps have a moral responsibility to ban and boycott it.

कश्मीरी मुसलमानों के मन में अपने निर्वासित कश्मीरी हिंदू भाइओं के लिए बहुत दर्द है। वे दिल से चाहते हैं कि कश्मीरी पंडित वापस लौट आयें।

लेकिन किसी कश्मीरी पंडित के जिस घर पर किसी ने कब्जा कर लिया था, या हालात देख कर मजबूरी में 100 की चीज 2-4 रुपये में बेचनी पड़ गयी थी, (1/3)
वह मकान वापस दिलाने की बात न की जाये, उसमें बहुत बखेड़ा हो जायेगा। संभव नहीं है जी।

कश्मीरी पंडितों को वापस बसाने के लिए अलग से कोई नयी बस्ती नहीं बनायी जा सकती है जी, सरकार ने ऐसा किया तो कश्मीर फिर से जलने लगेगा।

तो पुराना घर वापस नहीं मिलेगा, नयी जगह पर बसने नहीं (2/3)
देंगे, लेकिन दिल में बहुत दर्द है कश्मीरी पंडित भाइयों के लिए। आखिर वे भी कश्मीरियत का हिस्सा हैं, उनके बिना कश्मीर अधूरा है, उन्हें बुलाना चाहते हैं, पर रहने की जगह नहीं देंगे।
