Let's accept it for the sake of argument that by not giving ppl of GB their so-called political right, #Pakistan in a way follows India. However I have the point to make. On one hand you oppose the accession of #GilgitBaltistan with Pakistan... Image
But on the other hand India believes in the authority of Hari Singh's instrument of accession and opposes the right to self determination of #Kashmiris.
In addition to this you believe #GilgitBaltistan to be part of #Kashmir (in contrast to wishes of people of GB) for former being once forcefully made part of Dogra state.
Where lies the difference between the two?

🔶Beyond Aamir Khan-Lady Erdogan meet🔶

Recently our vicious neighbor #Pakistan has found a new ally. No, we aren’t talking about the obvious one "Land of Dragons"; but this time its a friend from the west - #Turkey.
2/21

The relations between the two have been flaming. The question is why should a simple #Kashmiri be bothered about #Pakistan’s new friend #Turkey?
3/21

Establishing supremacy among the nations by traditional wars is archaic now. It’s a new era of planning, plotting, and sabotaging.#Turkey isn’t behind in this league too.

Azadi is not an option
A #Thread
What does a misguided #Kashmiri mean by “Azaadi”? Is it the right to #equality, right to #freedom, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion, cultural & educational rights, right to property & right to constitutional remedies
(1/27)
If that is the meaning of “Azaadi” then it is already entrusted to them through the #constitution then who are these people and why are they asking for Azadi?
(2/27)
The people of #kashim for long have been disassociated with the #progress in mainland due to provisions of #Article_370 which restricted the investment and #development in the state.

Hateful Biased narrative of #JavedAkhtar

Wrote scripts to 24 Bollywood films wth writer Salim frm '70 to '82. Mostly crime-based.

#5 Mafia dons ruled Bombay then: HajiMastan, YousufPatel, KarimLala, VaradarajanMudaliyar & DawoodIbrahim. But his films never had a Muslim villain.
In the film #Deewar scripted by #JavedAkhtar it was a familiar narrative. Hero was an atheist who wears a #786 badge which saves him when shot. Clever!

Just like this script writer who claims he was an atheist but never spoke against Pakistan or Jihadis or Muslim terrorists.
From 1983 to 2006, #JavedAkhtar scripted 14 more films but never shown a Muslim negatively. So from 1970 to 2006, in 38 films, not a single Muslim character was a villain.

But the villain was always a Hindu! Coincidence or planned? You decide.

The Anti Defamation League or ADL which was founded to combat antisemitism has been subverted.

ADL is working with
Mus-lim Extremests, Ter•orrist sympathizers, Anti-semetic persons and groups, Marxists,
@JoeBiden and military units running psychological warefare against @POTUS
Jonathan Greenbaltt (JG)
was made CEO of the ADL in 2017
Previoulsy JG worked for @BillClinton  and most recently JG was special assistant to
@BarackObama

Interesting since these were the very administrations arming Iran with nuclear weapons.
@BillClinton
@BarackObama
@JohnBrennan
@JoeBiden
and their staff literally were arming Syrian Extremist groups who were put on Terro-rist watch lists globally.

Don't know how many people in India are keeping tab on dangerous turn #Pakistan domestic politics is taking due to various external & internal reasons.

But what's happening has far reaching consequences not only on Pakistan but on #Indiansubcontinent & beyond.

#geopolitics
Pakistan's domestic politics is dominated and driven by following factors!

1. Islam 2 Military 3. Geo Political importance & location of Pakistan 4. Atomic Bomb 5. Military industrial complex 6. Punjabi dominance on everything 7. India a forver enemy.

#PakistanPolitics
But due to various big global events and Pakistan Amry's refusal to loosen grip on Pakistan's internal and external matters has created a new and most dangerous mess in Pakistan's history.

And due to this 7 factors mentioned above have started conflicting with each other.

Spectacular beauty of the #Astore Valley, #GilgitBaltistan: trekked from Rupal to Rama Meadows around the NE side of Nanga Parbat. #Pakistan is a #hiker’s paradise! (1/4)
Inclement weather meant changed plans, but safety comes first. We opted at #RamaMeadows not to continue on to #FairyMeadows as originally envisaged. But a great reason to go back! (2/4)
#GilgitBaltistan is a beautiful yet fragile environment: what a privilege to visit and meet the people of #Astore, who work hard to support their families in high pastures and summer settlements, and the backbreaking labour of women harvesting grass. (3/4)

In "Ideal Illusions" James Peck writes how foreign policy obj r achieved via INGOS.

US&Indian convergence on policy to undermine #CPEC has allowed room for an unannounced #HybridWar against Pakistan.

Let’s take a look at SAATH FORUM & see how #IndiaWagingHybridWar

THREAD

/1
In order for us to truly understand the SAATH FORUM, the reasons for its formation in the US, the mysterious sources of it’s funding & the background of its members from Pakistan, we need to understand how US policy is formulated in the first place.

#IndiaWagingHybridWar

US being a democratic dispensation is not a monolith org, rather it’s an amalgam of many orgs!think tanks lobbyists & politicians all trying to influence policy at the same time.

Hussain Haqqani is one Pakistani who knew this better than everyone else.

In 2013, when I was working with Mr. Kamran Sheikh, we had filed a petition before the SC under Art 184(3) of the Constitution on behalf of Community Based Inclusive Development (CBID) Network seeking enforcement of the fundamental rights of persons with disabilities in #Pakistan
The petition was drafted in People-First Language & sought interpretation of constitutional rights in the context of disability, relying on the rights-based approach enunciated in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) (Ratified by Pakistan in 2011)
The petition raised no. of issues faced by persons w/ disabilities (PWDs), including lack of accessibile buildings, public places, educational & transport facilities, non-enforcement of employment quotas, paucity of comprehensive official data regarding prevalence of disability

Pakistan was made by the sacrifices of countless brave men, women & children. Among them is the blind, unwavering support of a sister who stood beside her brother like an iron wall.

Fatima Jinnah reflects the strength of our women.

But, what are we doing to them in return?
2. The appalling stats that represent a fraction of the cruelty that’s taking over our streets are a result of a systematic failure.
But, these stats don't represent their potential, it shows our inability to protect and support them.
3. Women are leading different industries in & out of Pakistan each day.

Post partition, Fatima Jinnah worked tirelessly to keep the vision alive & her presidential election was the 1st by a woman in a post-colonial Muslim society.

From that to where we are today is a long fall

With 26 top terrorist commanders killed in 7 months, there are less than 200 active #Terrorists in Kashmir with 50 active in North #Kashmir. Terrorists are shifting focus to North Kashmir but they are in for a “Grand Welcome” here by the #IndianArmy.

#Terrorism in North #Kashmir in the past few year has waned off due to the relentless anti-terrorist operations by the #Army coupled with its initiatives to reach out to the people through its numerous goodwill activities,..

..thereby gaining the support & trust of the locals. That is why you’ll find the majority of the terrorists active in North Kashmir are #Pakistan #terrorists, with local recruitment at its lowest.

A woman was gang raped after her car broke down on the highway in #Pakistan a few days ago. A police official victim blamed her, saying she should not have been out at night.
It is known as the #MotowayIncident and there have been protests in #Pakistani cities. This video is of women performing an Urdu version of the #LasTesis anti-rape anthem The Rapist Is You! that went viral last year h/t @aimanrizwan

Thousands of Anti-Shia extremists in #Pakistan participated in a rally against Shia Muslims today

This is extremely worrying, and this is a strong indication that there will be further sectarian violence in the country. ImageImageImage
The demonstrators held banners belonging to a known terrorist organization (SSP) that have been responsible for the targeted killings of Shia Muslims in the country.

The demonstrators were chanting “Shia are Kaffir [disbelievers]” and pledging allegiance to Abu Sufyan.
Since the start of Muharram, we have seen numerous Shia believers targeted for reciting religious scriptures and partaking in Ashura commemorations.

This demonstration should not be taken lightly when our brothers and sisters are being kidnapped and killed for their beliefs.

Pakistan is gradually moving towards restoring pre-COVID normalcy. It is important that decisions, especially those pertaining to health & safety of our children, are based on observations and scientific data compiled & reported from all over the world and not on unfounded fear.
Studies specifically looking at children & adolescents younger than 18yrs of age, suggest COVID-19 transmission among children in schools may be low. Most children if infected, have milder disease pattern, less severity b/c of lower susceptibility to SARS-CoV2 compared to adults.
Children account for 1-7% of COVID-19 cases, far less need for hospitalization and have < 0.1% (0.1% in China, 0.69% in Europe with children between 2-10 years of age at lowest risk) of COVID-19-related deaths.

OpIndia says #Mercenary #ExMuslims wanted to trigger Hindus after #SwedenRiots to deflect from Muslims rioting on streets.

Admittedly, YES.

#Pakistan saw protests over #CharlieHebdo —peaceful compared to 2018 violence over acquittal of Asia Bibi—on same morning of Armin Navabi's post (3 Sep '20).

Coincidence? Or did #ExMuslims generate noise over Hindu trolls on SM, to blackout news of Muslims protest in Pakistan?
For sure, aim of #Mercenary #ExMuslims was to create #FalseEquivalence bet. Muslims & Hindus. View their timelines to witness a well-coordinated campaign with matching messaging. In this, prominent Ex-Muslims based in West appear on the same page. We've a new cabal to deal with.

Show me a doctor-only staffing model that allows us to care for all Americans, including rural and inner city, those on Medicaid, uninsured, undocumented. The system is broken. We need a range of clinicians.
I am fine being unpopular with doctors. I don’t give any clinician a pass, tho. I don’t give any faculty a pass either.

What I ❤️❤️❤️ @MIT @MITSloan @MITSloanFellows is get to be honest, creative, expressive, fail, try again.

Pushing past boundaries is the goal. Have an impact.
We need fewer silos and turf wars. We need to break down walls and boundaries.

Fail often but fail smartly. Expect to fail. Have a disciplined process by which to learn from failure.

Every time you learn you have pushed a boundary of your mind or skills or effectiveness.
