Dear IPS, ask Indian state to lift the communication blackout so people and media can talk to local psychiatriss. Supporting state policies seriously shadows your credibility for blind nationaism. #StandwithKashmir thehindu.com/news/cities/mu…
I am a Kashmiri psychiatrist and sadly member of IPS. I have worked & researched in #kashmir. There are 💯 of papers documenting the trauma and torture of local population. Sadly you stand with psychiatrists like the ones in Nazi Germany who put ethics behind. #StandwithKashmir
It would be good to know if you have spoken to any of your member in Kashmir chapter of IPS? Probably you don't care as it's about national interest and blind faith in propaganda news. You even planned to troll @TheLancet

Mast Qalander: read about it
In this ruins of the kotla lived a Mast Qalander. every day he would walk down to the tomb of Bhure shah in the vicinity of the Red fort and pray to the"saint with the fiery temper". A big-built man with a barel of chest and a shaggy beard,
his prayers were not the silent outpourings of a heart but the mutterings of one who had lost contact with his surroundings and lived in a world of his own. He would walk down to the shrine of Hare-Bhare and beat his 'chimta' (iron tongs) to announce his arrival.
The young were overawed by him and the old considered him to be someone from the past who had been visiting the jama Masjid area for long as one cared to remember. like Zanoni,he was likened to an order of mystics who thrive for centuries.

Why exactly BJP IT cell hates @Shehla_Rashid and trending #arrestShehlaRashid

1. She was the first #Kashmiri girl to win #JNUSU elections with maximum votes in that year.
2. Shehla-Kanhaiya duo lead #OccupyUGCMovement against scraping of UGC fellowship leading to transfer of the then MHRD minister @smritiirani to Textile.
3. When @kanhaiyakumar dubiously got arrested, she successfully lead the movement for the release of all JNU students.

Why was #ShahFaesal fleeing to #Turkey?

For Jamat-e-Liberal folks/peacefuls, Faesal is a legend

First #Kashmiri IAS topper & an #Harvard alumni

He quit everything to bring peace, prosperity & dev to #Kashmir by starting a political party!
Shah Faesal went to attend Mason program in Harvard Kennedy School (HKS)

Prestigious program attended by many politicians from around the world

Half of class becomes PMs, Prez, ministers after they go bk

US senators come there

Top NGOs, UN positions are given to HKS fellows
Why govt sponsored him to Harvard if they knew his allegiance and spent 1crore+?

Claimed he got Fullbright scholarship, but that only pays for travel/boarding

Tuition fees of $80000 is very expensive & fully-paid leave from job with no agreement to work after coming back

Who has the most right to speak about the #KashmirIssue? #Kashmiris, of course. Speaking with @tmturkee about her perspective on #Kashmir. #KashmirBleeds #KashmirBleedsForJustice #StandwithKashmir #KashmirWantsFreedom #EndKashmirBlockade

Full interview:
@tmturkee "The Indian media, it's corrupt. The narrative that's in the mainstream media is totally corrupt because they tell you a one-side story.... They tell you that everything perfectly fine in #Kashmir. How can everything be fine when people are not allowed to go out?" #KashmirBleeds
@tmturkee #Kashmiris on #Kashmir. Speaking with @kingaamir29 about his perspective: "Scrapping #Article370 is like UK revoking independence." #KashmirBleeds #KashmirBleedsForJustice #StandwithKashmir #KashmirWantsFreedom #EndKashmirBlockade

@sanjaytickoo @ReclaimTemples @SaveTemplesBH @LostTemple7 @JammuKashmirNow @TheIndianTemple @SulagnaDash6 @gollakmahapatra @AhmAsmiYodha @Ind4Ever @Amisri4 #Kashmir is land of Kashyap Rishi, 1 of 7rishis mentioned in Rigveda. Anantnag is land of Shesha Naga, king of Nagas. Srinagar was called as Surya (Sun) Nagar. Baramulla named on Baraha Abatar of Vishnu. Kashmir was a Hindu Land. Just 100 years of Radical Islam destroyed all.

I have just boarded the flight to #Srinagar. The only way I could find to reach my parents. I haven't been able to contact them since past 4 days. This is the story of every #Kashmiri living away from the valley --a valley writhing under the weight of brute force #Kashmir
Once I reach there, I'll be incommunicado. No phones, no internet, not even landlines. This air journey feels like one down an abyss. I'll give an update when it's possible to. I don't have the faintest idea when that will be possible. I am surrounded by numb Kashmiris #Kashmir
There is so little I know about my people there. Yet I know so much. My mother's eyes would be red by now -- from hours of crying and lack of sleep. My father would be weaker than before. They'll hug me and cry, I know, even when I don't know how I'll reach home. #Kashmir

#Kashmir was an inland sea called Satisaar, inhabited by Pahadis/ Nagas (Sanskrit for mountain).
Brahma’s grandson, Rishi Kashyap on his pilgrimage from South India, (when In Jalandhar) was approached for help to free Satisaar of demons Jalodbhav who were tyrannizing the Nagas.
Kashyap Rishi performed poojas to save Nagas from Jalodbhava.

Tripursundari Sharika Devi, Durga incarnation, came to his aid in the form of an enormous bird/ Haer with a Divine stone in her beak; dropped it on 2 demons & killed them.
That stone transformed into Hari Parbat 🙏🏻
Indra helped Kashyap Rishi kill all demons but Jaldeva escaped. Vishnu ji transformed Himself into Varah & killed him.
Hitt by his tail, the mountains made a pass through which the waters of Satisaar flowed out..
That spot where mountains parted is called Varahmula/ Baramulla.

End Game for separatism! Possibility predictions
1) If India changes status quo in #Kashmir, confused #PakistanArmy wud assort to adventurism! It may giv diplomatic approval for Kashmir as new country!
2) To disapprove Indian move, #Pakistan would launch military campaign to express solidarity with #Kashmiri Awaam n their Azadi feelings.
In that case Indian leadership wud employ Never-Seen-Before military power to stun #GHQ n #ISI combo and geographical changes possible in Pak
3) If Pakistan opens military front in Kashmir against India to protest change of constitutional Status Quo in Kashmir, Indian wud deal disproportionate air/ land punch of its choice anywhere on Western border triggering Pakistan's disintegration from within in no time.

#India is deploying 100 companies of paramilitary groups, around 10,000 soldiers, in #Kashmir after saying it has info #Pakistan-based groups plan attack. But #NewDelhi fails to show any evidence for this move that will escalate tensions. /1
timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/addition…
There is no evidence to support #India claims of a potential terror threat from #Pakistan territories. Why would #Islamabad ruin a great diplomatic moment with #US president offering mediation to the conflict & saying he wants end to bombings in Kashmir? @AQpk
#PulwamaAttack, the last major attack in #Kashmir in Feb 2019, was indigenous with local material & support base. Not a single country accepted #Indian claim of Pak link. #Saudi FM in #NewDelhi famously asked Indian TV interviewer for evidence before implicating #Pakistan.

I watched the entire proceedings of #OICMakkahSummit for about 8 hrs, and live tweeted at @Office_AQPk interesting tidbits & observations. Here's some observations on PM #ImranKhan's speech. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
PM #Pakistan #ImranKhan was well received at #OICMakkahSummit. #MBS, King of #Bahrain, Pres of #Iraq, PM #Bangladesh, informally interacted with him. #Saudi hosts opened doors at holy sites for only two leaders this time: President Al-Sisi of #Egypt & PM Khan of Pakistan. /2
PM #ImranKhan speech was among the long ones at #OICMakkahSummit. It was extempore. Many Muslim leaders didn't get to speak due to paucity of time. Immediately after PM's speech, Secretariat asked leaders to keep remarks short. PM's speech was among the well delivered speeches./3

The real face of our system. The system used everyone for their own gains & treated equally either it is a family of martyr or a militant. People always ask why #Kashmiri always demand for #Azadi & what it means to them. We the ppl of Kashmir want #Azadi from such hypocrisy.
In Jan 13, #LanceNaikHemraj was killed & beheaded on LoC in Poonch of #Kashmir, promised was made for allotting a petrol pump, setting up a memorial & school in in Mathura but after 6 yrs after the incident family feels betrayed as the promises not fulfilled. @BJP4India
In January 19, #Hemraj’s wife was served a notice to vacate her accommodation in #MathuraCantt. After a media outcry, the notice was kept in abeyance. Hemraj family builted a memorial on their own. But govt could not even get a boundary wall constructed. 2/n @adgpi @dreamgirlhema

I will share with you a series of stories related to life in #Kashmir. They are #BelieveItOrNot stories.

STORY 1- A few week ago many people shared the picture of this #Shiv temple in #Gulmarg. This temple has been an attraction primarily in the summer months. 1/n
It is on top of a hill inside the #Gulmarg bowl. The hill used to be covered with flowers on all sides as was most of Gulmarg and has the best view.

The temple also has some accommodation opposite to it which was used by the priest and sometimes rented as well by travellers. 2/n
This temple in #Gulmarg also had some accommodation opposite to it which was used by the priest & sometimes rented as well by travellers. Close to 3 decades back during the summer months, there used to be "havan" at the temple & they made the best halwa one could have. 3/n
