Some interesting reports coming out of #Afghanistan over the past few days:

- roughly 2,000 #Taliban suicide bombers have been moved to the #Iran|ian border since the end of May.
- #ISKP has also started moving their fighters to northern #Afghanistan, according to sources within an anti-#Taliban group. They are being moved to #Badakhshan, #Takhar and some others.

Apparently, there are both @CIA and #ISI fingerprints on this.
- #Taliban are moving its fighters closer to the #Tajikistan border. Fighters are also moving to the #Badakhshan province, bordering #Tajikistan.

- #TTP have become so emboldened to expand their operations around #Pakistan, including new waliyats in #Balochistan & #Punjab.

دہلی سلطنت کےدوران پنجاب کتنابڑا تھا؟
لفظ "پنجاب" (پنجاب) فارسی کےدو الفاظ پنج (پنج) کا مجموعہ ھےجس کے معنی پانچ اور آب (آب) کےمعنی ہیں پانی۔
پنجاب" کی اصطلاح قرون وسطی کےدور میں ایک مبہم خطہ کے لیے استعمال ھوتی تھی۔ یہ کوئی سیاسی ادارہ یا ریاست نہیں تھی ImageImage
جسکی اپنی اچھی طرح سےمتعین سرحدیں تھیں۔
سادہ الفاظ میں پنجاب ایک جغرافیائی اصطلاح ھواکرتی تھی، سیاسی نہیں۔
پنجاب کاعلاقہ سلطان التمش کےدور میں دہلی سلطنت کاحصہ ھواکرتا تھا۔ تاہم اسکےبعد منگول حملوں نے پنجاب کے زیادہ ترحصےکو ان دوطاقتوں کےدرمیان میدان جنگ میں تبدیل کردیا۔
پنجاب کا
بیشتر حصہ اب بھی دہلی سلطنت کے کنٹرول میں تھا، لیکن اس کا کچھ حصہ منگول سلطنت کے کنٹرول میں تھا۔
دہلی سلطنت کے اندر پنجاب ایک متحد صوبہ نہیں تھا۔ پنجاب کا علاقہ، سلطنت دہلی کے دیگر علاقوں کی طرح، چھوٹی انتظامی اکائیوں میں تقسیم کیا گیا تھا جسے اقتا کہا جاتا تھا۔

راجہ پورس___316قبل مسیح

علاقہ پورو(Puru) سے تعلق رکھنے والاپورس جوقدیم ھندوستانی مقدس کتاب "رگ وید" کی تحریروں کاعنوان رہا، اسکااصل نام "Purushotama" تھا۔
راجہ پورس"جنگ جہلم"(پنجاب/older name Hydaspes) کا شیر ImageImageImage
اور ایک انتہائی بہترین جنگجو اور فوجی رہنما تھا۔
جہلم کے مہاراجہ پورس نے ٹیکسلا کے مہاراجہ آمبھی کےبرعکس یونانی اسکندر (Greek Alexander) کے خلاف مزاحمت کا انتخاب کیا۔
سکندر نے اپنا ایلچی پورس کے پاس بھیجا کہ وہ اسکی خودمختاری کوتسلیم کرتےھوئے خراج دینےپر راضی ھوجائے۔
تاہم پورس نے ImageImage
ایسا کرنے سے انکار کر دیا اور ایلچی سے کہا کہ ”ہم میدانِ جنگ میں ملیں گے"۔ اگرچہ سکندر نےیہ جنگ جیت لی تاہم یہ اس کی زندگی کی آخری جنگ ثابت ھوئی۔
اسکندر اعظم کادنیا کوفتح کرنے کاخواب "جنگ جہلم" جیت جانے کےباوجود ادھورا رہا۔

Independent India has always been a vibrant democracy, except for the #Emergency years of #IndiraGandhi from 1975-77. That it has taken a decisive turn to religious majoritarianism under the #BJP and under #Modi since 2014 doesn't change that fact. (1/)
Democracy is not necessarily congruent with liberal values or even human rights. #Slavery was legal both in the democracy of Great Britain as well as the USA for almost a hundred years since the US' formation. Even a White woman was not considered equal to a man in America. (2/)
#Blacks in the #US did not have equal rights even after the abolition of slavery for another 100 years under #Lincoln, but we still think of the US in #1960 as a democracy.

Paucity of jobs, avenues, is draining Punjab !! Image
Before the Covid-19 outbreak, there were around 17,500 IELTS centers in Punjab, including more than 2,200 in the Doaba region only, the NRI belt of the state comprising four districts – Jalandhar, Kapurthala, Nawanshahr and Hoshiarpur. In Jalandhar alone, there are 1,550 centers
Consultants say that more than 40% of all students who migrated from India to foreign countries are from #Punjab. Parents see no future for their children, & drug addiction has only compounded the woes. In such a situation, the immigration industry has become quite huge Punjab !

Recently we have seen pictures from #Pakistan that people are keeping the graves of women members of the family under lock and key as NERCOPHILIA cases are on the rise.

The society of Pakistan has become so Horny that now the #Graves of #Womens are not safe.

Thread 🧵 ImageImage
Pakistan is an Islamic Nation where after the death of people they are buried in Kabristan so that their soul can get peace.
But now people in Pakistan are locking the Female Graves as the NERCOPHILIA cases are on the rise.
What is Nercophilia? and why people are locking the Graves of womens.

Nercophilia is a paraphilia whereby the perpetrator gets sexual pleasure in having sex with the dead.

So to save Womens from these perpetrators Pakistani families are locking the Graves of Womens. Image

The story of the last one year is in front of us all and we all know that I don't need to repeat it, but I want to highlight some things here so that you can compare the trap laid by Imran Khan with today's situation. Who are in the closed street and in whose
hands is the spread!
When #Imran Khan was going to reach Pindi by taking a long march, General R. Bajwa was very nervous and he had very little time left!
In regime change, Bajwa was promised an extension in London that after removing Imran Khan, you will be given an extension!
After that Imran Khan had to clear the way for Nawaz Sharif by disqualifying him and again Nawaz Sharif had to be qualified with Imran Khan!
In the meantime Imran Khan was to be put in jail and the party was to be divided into pieces.
