As per V P Menon (Patel's right hand man):

"These assurances had been given by Sardar Patel, the Home Minister, himself."

First report: 36 hours after I landed in #Kashmir (fifth day of curfew)
I could manage internet connection from a relatives place who lives very close to airport (the only place where internet works)
No communication. Medicines especially insulin is needed in valley
#Kashmir is under complete shut down. Very rare movement of people. The videos of Normal Kashmir being shows by some journalists are of Raj Bagh and area close to press enclave where some movement and please don't mistook it as the picture of entire Kashmir.
URGENT: An urgent ticket counter is needed outside Srinagar airport , so that patients who need urgent medication or parents who need to go out to meet their children would be able to get tickets and could be airlifted. @HMOIndia @PMOIndia

#MaryamNawaz, the PMLN, their media friends and supporters have been casting aspersions on Prime Minister #ImranKhan reg an old news report in which he proposes a three-tier solution of #KashmirIssue. Thread with a bit of historical context to help understand the rationale. 👇
The first thing that needs to be understood is that Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and Indian Administered Kashmir (which includes Kashmir, Jammu and Ladhak) are part of the greater Kashmir area. Each of these areas are more or less disputed.
Azad Kashmir, Indian Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan are Muslim majority areas with over 95% Muslim population in each area. On the other hand, Jammu and Ladhak are Hindu and Buddhist majority areas respectively.

Kashmir Crisis- Explained.
---------------------------

Feb-1989- Russian invasion ends in Afghanistan
1989- Terrorist activities start in Jammu and Kashmir

30 years later-2019
----------------------
Trump has to withdraw troops from Afghanistan after peace deal with Taliban.
The non state actors of Pakistan will be free from their western borders and will be deployed on eastern borders ie Kashmir.Its a repeat of what happened 30 years back.

Only difference that this time Pakistan is in a hurry to time it with Trumps offer on mediation +
and make Kashmir an international issue.

Indian intelligence agencies most probably intercepted communication lines and concluded that something terrible is in waiting for Kashmir .

History is repeating.+

Despite appearances chatter in the American circles is that CIA had intel on British intervention in #Kashmir put in motion during Cricket World Cup displaying the #KashmirIssue on world stage opening doors for their entry later on. #OperationKashmir
Knowing well India's position on #Kashmir & how Indians would react to mediation, Trump launched pre-emptive strike with his OFFER before #DeepState could move - thereby scandalising the "mediation" issue altogether. Moreso by saying it was Modi's request.

The Kashmir problem, an Anglo-American operation against India provides the culminating illustration of the hostility between India and Pakistan and the imperialistic ambition to rule over the sub-continent under the trusteeship of the United Nations.

When I was in Kashmir in the fall of 1952 some two-thirds of the officers on cease-fire line were Americans and not all of them handled themselves with discretion. Last UN negotiator was American Frank Graham & Administrator for Plebiscite Admiral Chester Nimitz.
- Chester Bowles
"Despite high caliber of these men & all goodwill in the world UN efforts to achieve Kashmir settlement took on character of an American operation. In a situation where passions ran high we have not only failed but have come in for sharp criticism." US Amb greatgameindia.com/kashmir-proble…
