#Thread on #BurhanWani
8th July 2016 was the day when Security Forces eliminated dreaded #terrorist #BurhanWani in #Tral #Kashmir
Since then, 8th July is presented as a ‘very important’ day in #Kashmir by #Pakistan based propaganda machinery...
They flood social media with posts, posters, videos glorifying him, labeling him as martyr, messiah, studious , son of ‘maths teacher’ etc hiding his dirty image from locals...
One who knows how #terrorism industry works in #Kashmir is also aware what really attracts young boys towards it. Mostly, they get inspired by a friend, an elder brother or an uncle who picked up arms & his job now is to recruit more for a failed cause...

The initial period of #Dogra regime under Gulab Singh & Ranbir Singh was eager to cultivate the loyalty of the Hindu clerical caste of #Kashmir Pandit and few prominent Kashmir Muslim families.
#Gulab Singh was acquainted that the #Kashmiri Pandits were highly advanced in education and wielding monopoly of Persian language; they succeeded in getting important jobs in the #Lahore court as well as in other States
The province of #Kashmir signified many problems of administrative reconstruction & consolidation. The Urban KPs were loyal to & ruler and they engaged themselves in revenue & other posts whereas the Rural KPs were simply cultivators with no connection tod revenue administration

A #Kashmiri view on recent militant attacks in #Kashmir

Why are #militants targeting #CRPF in areas where there is civilian population around.
They know that an #innocent #Kashmiri might get killed in such an attack. Why they choose to do this to us??..
...Cross firing will be there, there will be retaliation by the forces...
It is the #Kashmiris who get killed. The same #Kashmiris whom our #militants call brothers & guarantee to provide Azadi. We don't want Azadi at the cost of our own people getting..
...killed during desperate attempts of militants to attack to forces..
First, #BijbeharaAttack where a 6 yo got killed & now in #Sopore where a kid saw his father getting killed.
He will be told that this was done by #Army by his family members, who have already started..

That saw kids and babies craving for milk and other necessary items, that saw patients dying due to lack of medical facilities, that saw phone connectivity being clamp down every now and then, SMS services being totally blocked,
Thread 3/n
Internet services being run on whims of police and politicians , hundreds of youths behind bars because of monstrous #PSA & that saw J&K rising as no 1 state in terms of corruption with various scandals coming to the fore.

@mahrukhinayet Agree Truth is the ONLY way forward . #Kashmiris DONT apologize to their oppressors Period. We #Resist We #Fight & we’ll #succeed IA.
For rapes in #Kashmir, indians including attorneys actually protest against arrest of Rapists. Did they apologize?…
@mahrukhinayet On 10th October 1992, 9 women were gang raped during a search operation by a unit of 22 Grenadiers in village Chak Saadpora in #Shopian. The victims include 11 year and a 60 year old women. Medical reports confirm rape. No soldier was prosecuted. Who will apologize to them?
@mahrukhinayet On 2nd Jan 1992, a Major and other personnel of 5 RR barged into house of a local who was related to a militant. Their father was abducted. The elder daughter was raped by Major and younger daughter by other personnel. Father is still missing. No soldier was prosecuted.

#Pulitzer2020 Awards are #PaidByPak:

1) ALL civilian killings post 5 Aug 2019 by Terrorists. Apple traders, Transporters, Shopkeepers killed for defying "civil curfew" enforced by OGWs. Schools burnt, people threatened to hide normalcy.

2) NO CURFEW by state; only Section 144.
Terrorists enforced shutdown to show false picture of "KASHMIR BLOCKADE" to world.

"Opened fire and injured 4 persons including a 5-year-old girl and 3 fruit growers, in north Kashmir, triggering panic among the apple traders."
(September 7, 2019)…
"Terrorists hurled petrol bombs at the school to burn down the establishment. This is the second incident of a school being set on fire in Kashmir in the past few weeks."

For sometime now, liberals in #Pakistan have been peddling the demise of Two Nation Theory that provides the basis of #Pakistani statehood.

One of them is an obtuse physicist Pervez Hoodboy whose pseudo philosophy deems the 1971 secession of East Pakistan as cause.

This proposition especially proves its own intellectually bankrupt, when its made while India is being ruled by #hindu nationalist #BJP.

Who’ve passed genocidal CAA & NRC laws to cancel citizenships of millions of #Indian #Muslims & when 8 million #Kashmiris are under siege.

Hoodboy claims that today’s Pakistan is only half the country envisioned by our founding fathers, therefore Two Nation Theory is dead.

Besides BJP’s #hindu nationalism itself proving the Two Nation Theory, let’s consider how it influenced Bengal’s struggle for independence.

What kind of logic is this? Someone tell the #Indian Minister of External Affairs that #Kashmiris dont need an incentivization to protest. Indias brutal occupation is reason enough.…
The truth is that Jaishankar is grabbing at straws. He might be losing his job soon b/c the international community is not buying Indias propaganda. Foreign journalists arent being allowed because #India does not want the international community to see what its doing in #Kashmir
#Indians civil society has published a number of fact finding reports. Where was the incentivization then? And foreign journalists and human rights observers dont have to come in on an elephant; they can go in and out without much fanfare if #India is so concerned

A huge thank you to @NitashaKaul for your courage, honesty & bravery on the @HouseForeign committee held on Oct 22nd. You demonstrated the power & significance of Kashmiri voices in Kashmir's path to liberation. You were nothing short of remarkable ♥️

@NitashaKaul @HouseForeign .@NitashaKaul in her opening, draws apt parallel comparisons between #Nazi Germany and current day #India. She boldly demands India be held accountable for their arbitrary use of power in #Kashmir.
@NitashaKaul @HouseForeign Here @NitashaKaul answers some of the lies spoken by another co-panelist earlier.

Tomorrow, the US House Subcommittee on Asia, will be hosting a historic hearing on Human Rights in South Asia. One witness will be @AartiTikoo, a war-monger, Islamophobe, rabid Indian nationalist, and denier of human rights violations in #Kashmir. IMP THREAD (1/23)
This past March, @AartiTikoo was cheering military violence against Kashmiris on both sides of the border, and for pushing a policy that could lead to nuclear war. (2/23)
@AartiTikoo will be there to cheer on India's brutal clampdown on #Kashmir. She has recently praised PM @narendramodi, and thanked him for "strengthening Indian democracy." (3/23)

Speaking at #AdiosModi protest of #HowdyModi about how Modi's totalitarian regime is crushing freedom of expression & thought throughout India — raiding homes of professors, writers, activists to interrogate them about the books they own or their pictures of Ambedkar on the wall.
While naked & homeless children survive only by begging in the streets of Delhi, the capital of India, that nation's autocratic ruler just squandered over $2.5 million for a 3-hour spectacle with no other purpose than to whitewash his blood-drenched history. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi
We need to thank the American politicians who heroically refused to attend this event today. I want to name some names. That includes people like Congressman @BradSherman & @RepAlGreen. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi

Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija Mufti on Friday asked whether J&K was an integral part of #India or a colony.

J&K is not a colony. It is an integral part of #India. It is #Kashmir based parties who treated India as their colony by playing the separatist card.
Iltija Mufti also said that that #Article370 had nothing to do with development.

Only a person who lives outside the state can afford to be so ignorant. Iltija Mufti lives in Chennai and enjoys all the facilities which are not available here in #Kashmir.
#Article370 and 35A were responsible for J&K's backwardness while only benefiting a select few like the separatists, politicians of mainstream political parties of #Kashmir and their families.

In this thread we will share links of all the reportage (from everywhere) bringing out the horror that people in Jammu and Kashmir are suffering:
#Kashmiris allege beatings, abuse in raids by Indian troops

#Kashmir #Article370…
In more than 50 interviews, residents in a dozen villages in #Kashmir told The Associated Press @AP that the military had raided their homes since India’s government imposed a security crackdown in the region Aug. 5.

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 ?
