#RSS is least of our concern when #India's #secularists are exploiting B'desh #riot to bestow legitimacy on a #fascist #colonial administration - by #Hasina.

Unlike #Kashmir, B'desh doesn't have a discourse - largely due to not having access/fluency in #English..


With no B'deshis around to resist their hegemony, the #colonizers have a free stadium to kick the ball - protraying B'deshi #Muslims as '#extremists', '#violent', '#WarCriminal' and so on.

#Riot is a football match, again producing consent for #Hasina's... 2/n.

...government in #Delhi.

A lot of '#Kashmiri scholars' (who doesn't have to face the wrath of the state) & their silence around this #Hindu-#Secularist 'saviors' axis are equally complicit.

The #colonizers are sealing our fates. 3/n.

Our researchers found a 2 year old hate literature, circulated as "academic discourse" from Huma Dar, a promoter of the recent #DismantlingGlobalHindutva conference. Daughter of a Pakistani Army officer, she masquerades as a Kashmiri activist spewing anti-India & anti-Hindu hate.
Note the use of divine Hindu imagery, while conveying blatant #Hinduphobic messaging and vicious anti-India propaganda. This graphics was used by Huma Dar for an event that was hosted at @UCSanDiego on October 30, 2019.
It is this kind of hate propaganda against Hindu communities, by propagandist like Huma Dar, that triggered the #Pakistani invasion of #JammuAndKashmir on October 22, 1947, that resulted in the murder of 11,000 #Kashmiris, and the rape of thousands of #Kashmiri #Hindu women. 3/4

"Aarif Khan was the nom de guerre of a local militant"

“We had to implement the #Shariah, the #Taliban & #AlQaeda way.”

This is the article for which #AasifSultan was taken to jail. Far from a #journalistic circus - it was highlight of a freedom struggle in #Kashmir.....

..which might be categorized as a '#TerrorSpeech' issue.

It is certainly not the #Western '#FreedomOfExpression'. The #Kashmiri expressions was not constructed that way, with Western norms.

The website is already down, so I wanted to take some snaps.
Is there a chance for this article not to attract state's wrath? By that word, I mean the #IndianState.

To all #Indians out there participating in the #FreeAasifSultan hashtag, do you respect our existence?

If you don't, what does your #solidarity, or mockery - stand for?

Azuk Kə̄šur šabɨd! Kashmiri word of the day!

#Kashmiri vedɨr /ʋʲɘd̻ɨ̆r/ ‘freezing cold under clear sunny skies (typically after a snowstorm passes)’ < Sanskrit vīdʰrá- ‘clear sunny sky’

A parallel semantic development exists in #Ossetic irdg | irdgæ ‘cold wind’ ← *vīdʰrakā́, >
> but the original meaning of the root survives in the related adjective ird ‘clear, bright’ < *vīdʰrá-.

Other cognates:
- Shina bêẓi, Palula bîdri ‘clear sky’ < Skt. *vīdʰrikā́
- Kalasha-mon bit ‘clear (of sky)’ < Skt. vīdʰrá-
- Kumaoni bidō ‘bright, sunny’ < Skt. *vīdʰraká-
Probably cognate to Ancient Greek itʰarós ‘bright, clear, pure’.

June is torture awareness month and this month, we'd like to highlight how widespread torture is in Indian-occupied #Kashmir.

Since the #occupation began in 1947, India has used gruesome #torture as a tool of suppression against Kashmiris. (A THREAD)
Torture is used as a systematic mechanism to create a fear-psychosis in the Kashmiri people & weaken the people’s resolve to resist occupation. It's used to show absolute power & to make examples out of people so that the entire society submits to Indian occupation & colonialism.
Since the occupation began in 1947, India has used gruesome torture as a tool of suppression against Kashmiris. Torture against Kashmiris intensified further since the armed struggle for freedom began in the late 1980s.

Historically #Kashmiri women have enjoyed freedom like none of their counterparts in the other regions of our country. The intrusion of regressive ideologies, targeted at women, in the 90’s, might have pushed them behind but they are rapidly changing the gender norms.

The spirit of women in #Kashmir, supported aptly by various #government initiatives, have grown wings that enable them to soar the skies and break the glass ceiling.
#WomenEmpowerment #Kashmir

@FatimaDar_jk @MirYanaSY @AsimKhanTweets @IAmErAijaz
With the #abrogation, women of #Kashmir now have a stake in their ancestral properties regardless of their choice is spouse. This have liberated women who are not bound, shackled with patriarchal laws.

Deradicalisation of #Kashmir Youth, need of the hour. #Thread.

The valley has been bearing the brunt of radicalisation that has the potential to destroy the future generation of #Kashmir. Its a ticking time bomb that needs to be addressed at the earliest.
The gradual erosion of #Sufism is an indicator of the growing radicalisation in #Kashmir. Sufism faces a stiff competition from the Wahhabi brand of Islam as preached in Saudi Arabia & other parts of the world.
Sufi shrines are being burnt and there has hardly been any public outcry regarding the same, indicating the waning influence of the Hanafis. With the abundance of Saudi money, Wahhabi followers are gradually taking over Hanafi masjids in the valley.

The assassinations of #MirwaizFarooq & #AbdulGhaniLone that reveals the ugly face of #Pakistan’s proxy war in #Kashmir. A #Thread

Pakistan is a festered wound in the lives of #Kashmiris that has been eating away the soul of Kashmir for decades now.
Some sane leaders in #Kashmir who saw through the devilish design of #Pakistan & tried to save its people from this snake in the grass were either sidelined or worse killed in cold blood.
This includes the two most influential leaders of Kashmir #MirwaizFarooq & #AbdulGhaniLone.
What happened with them?
At 7:15 p.m. on 13 Feb 1990, #terrorists shot Lassa Kaul, 45, director of the government-run #television station as he stepped from a vehicle in front of his home.
It shook Mirwaiz Farooq, Lassa Kaul was his dear friend.

♦️Gupkar Gang: Dynasty rule in #Kashmir♦️

#Srinagar's Gupkar Road is #Kashmir's Lutyens’ #Delhi. A 2km long path to power that slopes & curves like a peaceful dream amidst a turbulent landscape. The road ends at the residences of the #Abdullah family.

1/13 Image
The #Abdullah & #Mufti clan occupies 3 sprawling bungalows in this area. It is at these lawns the People's Alliance for #Gupkar Declaration (#PAGD ) was formulated to defend the very existence of Gupkar dynasties, which has been looting #Kashmir for quite some time now.
2/13 Image
After the revocation of #Article370, the Gupkar Gang has been seeking the restoration of the erstwhile state's special status. But the #DDCElections are paving way for a new system which appears to be putting an end to the dynastic rule of the #GupkarAlliance.

From "Our Correspondent" Adam Samuels...
"So now Keir #Starmer & Gen. Sec David #Evans are briefing THE DAILY MAIL!
Saying, blatantly, and with complete impunity, that they intend to continue to break #Labour's own rules,
the #NEC decision, #PLP standing orders and the #EHRC rules. And they've gone to one of the two most racist, disgusting sh*trags to say it.
To put this in perspective, they are literally saying they can do what the f**k they want, when they want,
including breaking all and any laws and rules they want to. In order to get Jeremy Corbyn to apologise for something he neither said or did.
While committing some of the worst offences it is possible to do under #Labour rules, #NEC rules, #PLP rules & #EHRC rules.

The fiction of “Azad Kashmir ”

🔶The Nomenclature of #Pakistan occupied #Kashmir (#PoK) by Pak is best e.ghow mind games are played. Pak tried smart by giving it name‘Azad Kashmir’to misguide as ‘Azad’ gives impression as if it's a free territory.

Is Azad Kashmir really free?
🔶 According to Article 21 of ‘AJK interim constitution, 1974’ #PMof #Pakistan will always be chairman of ‘Azad Jammu & #Kashmir council’. Now look into Article 24 (1) (c) of AJK interim constitution 1974 which clearly defined that...
🔶Any citizen of Pak qualifies to be member of assembly of PoK. PoK assembly can’t even amend important parts of its constitution without permission of Government of #Pakistan (Article 33 of ‘AJK interim constitution, 1974’). That’s how Pakistan made #PoK completely handicapped.

♦️#Pakistan Soldiers for Sale♦️
#Turkey has been in the news lately, where it's prez is going all out to be the caliphate of #Islam. Off late #Erdogan has shown its keenness towards #Kashmir.
@desertfox61I @VsNarrative @SoldierNationF1 @AbuBakaar_29
The pugnacious leader is making statements in the #UN & hiring #Kashmiri separatists in media to tarnish #India 's global image. If we are talking about #Kashmir, #Pakistan is never behind. The closeness between Erdogan & Mr Imran Khan has been growing.
Now #Pakistan has put its air force pilots on sale, to fight for #Turkey. To understand the issue we go back in 2016 where the failed military coup d’etat in #Turkey involved several Turkish Air Force officials, including pilots & some other senior functionaries.

22 Oct, a Black Day in #Kashmir’s History.

On 22 Oct 5,000 Kabaili tribesmen backed by #Pakistan army stormed Muzaffarabad and scattered 500-strong #Kashmir state army who had already suffered defections by its soldiers.
Flushed with victory, the #Pakistan's tribesmen got down to wanton looting and arson.

On 22 Oct 1947 five thousand Kabaili tribals from Pakistan invaded #Kashmir’s Muzaffarabad, rampaging, looting and killing innocent civilians on their way up to #Baramulla. However their advance was halted at Baramulla thanks to a brave 19 year old Maqbool Sherwani.
#MaqboolSherwani, single handedly thwarted the advance of thousands of #Pakistani raiders from #Baramulla, thereby giving valuable time to the #IndianArmy to land in #Srinagar and save #Kashmir.
Sherwani went around on his bike telling the Kabailis, who had stormed #Baramulla on October 22, 1947, not to advance towards #Srinagar as the #IndianArmy had reached the outskirts of Baramulla.

#TRF (The Resistance Front)

🔶Newly formed ‘The Resistance Front’ (#TRF) is like old wine in new bottle.
🔶This seems to have been created to give #Pakistan deniability from action under #FATF & is an amalgamation of existing terror groups operating in #Kashmir.

why new name ??
I.S.I and #Pakistan Gamechanger plan

🔶#TRF creation is due to the #FATF sword hanging over #Pakistan to cut terror groups funding .

🔶#Terrorism & the #terror outfits are increasingly becoming more institutionalized & #TRF is another move towards it

🔶#TRF, which is owning up #terror attacks in #Kashmir these days, is an offshoot of the #terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba & also associated with other terror outfits such as Hizbul Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammed.

Proof are these billboards of Pak Generals & Intelligence Chiefs on the streets of #Pakistan.
Decisions about how to manage the state's relationships with extremist org depends on Pakistan''s military, and within it, the powerful Inter-Services Intelligence directorate (ISI). ImageImageImage
Pak's ISI has been conspiring since long to increase #terrorism in the #Kashmir valley. Operation Tupac is an example,under which ISI is currently engaged in covertly supporting #Kashmiri separatists, Islamist's & #Terrorists in spreading terror in Kashmir.
