THREAD on what goes unreported about #DisabilitySport (here #WCBB) from developing countries like India. I woke up to an American colleague's exciting tweet about conducting research at this 'international inaugural event' and the #ScholarActivist in me cannot keep quiet. 1/
@_IWBF and @ICRC_nd including @Paralympics have for years noted that inside India, the #SportGovernance of #WCBB is a crumbling structure with no real grassroots development happening in true sense. Several complaints have been brought to their notice 2/
In private "off-record" conversations many international experts who carry pride in introducing #DisabilitySport to people from marginalized communities like India agree that @wbfi_info needs lot of work internally to call itself truly committed to the sport's development 3/

Sharing a story of the devastation wrought by the drug, N recalled how his friend took a shot of heroin and then attended his father's funeral prayers. "A man's father has died, and the first thing he does is to take a dose of heroin." 2/n
"I had a terrible craving. My whole body was in pain...I called my friends & they told me to do it again to relieve myself of withdrawal symptoms." N, who has relapsed 6 times & seen his friends "slowly eaten away by heroin", said "nobody takes action" to limit access. 3/n

#Pakistan´s tainted company Kashmir Premier League #KPL offered support to #India to hold cricket tournament in #Srinagar.
Does KPL get a nod from Pakistani, AJK politicians for this controversial statement?
It appears that organisers of Pakistani company KPL and politicians of #AzadKashmir have discovered a novel way to mint money by using the plight of the people of the Kashmir valley.
On April 06,2021,KPL President Arif Malik wrote a letter to the then PM of AJK, Raja Farooq Haider, in which,he claimed of having invested heavily in the Kashmir cause globally so KPL should be given exclusive rights to hold National or International matches in AJK for 13 years.

Negligence & refusal of BJP to host #IndianFlag 🇮🇳 at the fav spot Clock Tower Lal Chowk #Srinagar. Read below 👇🏻

The National Flag hoisted by @TheSkandar & @ErSahilBhat was insidiously taken down by authorities, citing lame excuses that the clocktower needs repair.

it's been 5 months now & despite repeated requests to repair, the BJP Govt has given no priority to this!

Despite reaching out to the Mayor,Divisional Commissioner & SMC Commissioner for the repair & installation of a Tri-color permanently at Clock Tower Lal Chowk.

They were told it will be soon repaired but nothing has been done till date 🙏🏻

Education enables us to make effective decisions about ourselves, our surroundings, and our societies.
Suffice to say #Education as an institution is notably significant in a civil society. And more so for #Kashmir.

@AdityaRajKaul @LtGenGurmit @AsimKhanTweets @MirYanaSY Image
In #Kashmir, the importance of structured #Education increases manifolds due to the dynamic nature of this region. Lack of education has a severe cascading effect here, eventually leading the gullible young people towards unlawful activities.
@kakar_harsha @neeraj_rajput Image
#Pandemic has restricted movement all over. With every public institution closed including schools and colleges, the Govt of #Jammu and #Kashmir have introduced initiatives to help students continue their studies, even in such uncertain times.

19 Jan 1990 - "Exodus day". More than 3 lakh Kashmiri Pandits who resided in #Kashmir from time immemorial became refugees overnight in their own country. A #thread #KashmiriPandits
The anti #Pandits pogroms & attacks started in 1989 with insurgency. On loud speakers open threats were being issued to #KashmiriPandits, the message was clear - "either leave the valley or die a painful death".
Posters were pasted outside their houses declaring them as targets for the Jihadist.
Instances of assassinations, tortures & murder were becoming common.

On 22 Oct 1947 five thousand Kabaili tribals from Pakistan invaded #Kashmir’s Muzaffarabad, rampaging, looting and killing innocent civilians on their way up to #Baramulla. However their advance was halted at Baramulla thanks to a brave 19 year old Maqbool Sherwani.
#MaqboolSherwani, single handedly thwarted the advance of thousands of #Pakistani raiders from #Baramulla, thereby giving valuable time to the #IndianArmy to land in #Srinagar and save #Kashmir.
Sherwani went around on his bike telling the Kabailis, who had stormed #Baramulla on October 22, 1947, not to advance towards #Srinagar as the #IndianArmy had reached the outskirts of Baramulla.

#Kashmir #terrorism
There has been an increasing clampdown on these establishment to put the conflict entrepreneurs out of business. NIA raids on the money laundering & #terror finance networks heralded the new approach of the government.
