India's #VikramLander failure is being debated here depending on which angle one is taking: consider.
1, as a scientific/tech achievement, final-phase failure aside, it is a big leap and shows #ISRO in a good light; 2, it also shows that #India is producing an impressive array>
> of scientists and engineers; that should be a matter of concern for us; 3, space is one of the frontiers in future wars, which will be tech-, and capital-intensive, not labour-intensive; 4, we should take serious stock of the education we are imparting and whether we can keep>
> up or, better still, overtake. i don’t have to say what it means if we can’t…
now to the failure: we are adversaries; #Kashmiris are under lockdown and being oppressed. while we should never underestimate the adversary, there’s absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t be happy>

To all those who say #Kashmir is joyous about "becoming Indian": after #burhanwani was killed, I spent some months in the valley. #Kashmiris were frustrated by India's militarisation, angry at oppression. #Thread - everything I saw illustrates Kashmiris wanted distance from India
Villagers of Chadoora, Budgam claimed security forces shot at and killed three teenage boys in their village. About 150 armed personnel had assembled to cordon off a house where a militant was lodged.
Such "encounters" are common in the valley.

A little beyond the encounter site in Chadoora, on the other side of the apple orchards, is a narrow canal. Some boys stood on the opposite bank of the canal and hooted at the soldiers, witnesses said.

After spending a week in the curfewed #Kashmir with my parents, I just got back to Jaipur

In this thread I discuss how restrictions on communication is affecting #Kashmiris living in or outside the valley

The communication ban & Curfew enters 10th day - Aug 14, 2019
With no landlines , mobiles, internet working in the valley , this is the second longest communication blockade witnessed since 2016.
And what makes it worst is that not even a single post office is operational from last 10 data since the valley is under curfew #KashmirUnreported
Administration has arranged telephone lines in the district HQs & police stations for parents who want to speak to their children.

BUT how do people reach those spots under curfew?

Is one telephone line sufficient for the population of lakhs ?

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

#Kashmir

Those who are suppressing the dreaded abrogation of civic liberties by dangling the carrot of industrial development - have neither set up an industry - nor have experienced a life w/o civil liberties & FRs.
Those fapping over the prospect of buying plots & building houses / spas / retreats in J&K - have never lived a day in a hostile neighbourhood.

Those who're pontificating "nationalism" to support the ghastly atrocities on fellow citizens - don't know what "nationalism" means
Try setting up an industry in a place where the locals are hostile towards you.

In an year, the bankers would be adding that loan to the NPAs.

Forget the massive, all pervasive hostility - even a small bunch of hostile anti-socials can bring an industry to a grinding halt.

#India escalates tensions☢️ in #Kashmir; claims terror threat but offers no evidence. #NewDelhi is:
➡️Thumbing nose at #US Pres #Trump who twice in 2weeks called for end to K conflict
➡️Scuttling #USPakistan process in #Afghanistan
➡️Hiding #Modi home mess
To show contempt to President #Trump & the #US, #India has released a rapist, relative of ex-mayor of #NewDelhi, who raped a #US woman.
The #US is a big reason for #India's escalation against #Kashmir & #Pakistan.
➡️Ind is angry at #Trump ending #Indian abuse of #American visas; trade tariffs
➡️Ind is angry at #USPakistan coop in #Afghanistan, statements on K
➡️Ind & #Iran lobbies in DC are coop'ing against Trump

Pakistan welcomes the re-election of India PM Narendra Modi to a second term. He makes Indian history. In this #thread, I explain why Islamabad is pleased to see #Modi win & how a historic opportunity emerges to resolve #Kashmir, make peace./1

During the dogfight over #Kashmir skies in Feb 2019, when a #Pakistan-#India nuclear war became a possibility, unprecedented international diplomatic intervention diffused tensions & averted war. But unlike previous crises, many things changed this time. One: world listened to
#Pakistan this time instead of just listening to #India. The 6-times smaller country was always smothered under the attention that India received globally. This time, #NewDelhi overreached, crossed int'l borders to conduct airstrike inside Pak. Strike failed, pilot captured.

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.
