1. Next 21 tweets on #Sikh tradition's relationship with different languages & scripts in Indic core & extended MidEast/Mongol/Tibet/E.Asian family.

What were the cultural undercurrents of the first Sikh movement towards Indicization?

What derailed this?

What about the future?
2. #Sikh Guru Angad ji pioneered the re-introduction of Indic script in Punjab. Rolled back imposition of modified-Arabic script.

#Gurmukhi is derived from Sharada script of #Kashmiri Hindus. Related to far flung Tocharian script. Is only surviving member of that script-family.
3. #Sindhis, Hindus from #NWFP & Hinglaaj (present-day #Balochistan), + today's #Kashmiri Hindus' Indic scripts have lost currency. Most now use modified-Arabic script.

These groups should consider adopting #Gurmukhi as script for their languages as they reclaim their identity.

A passion piece for me, tracing the origins of #Pakistan #Turkiye brotherhood.

Nowadays, when public affinity for #Turkish TvShow #ErtugrulGhazi
is the rage in #Pakistan.

I’ve attempted to trace the historical events that helped develop these bonds.

Be it #Turkish support to #Pakistan when it comes to the Kashmir dispute or other international issues, #Pakistanis are well aware of the fact that, #Turkey goes out of its way to stand by #Pakistan.

But to understand this bond of brotherhood, and how it developed over a period of a 100 years we need to take a deeper look at the instances in our own history, when #Pakistanis as a people went out of our way to stand by the #Turks.

#TipuSultan of Mysore (d.1799) wrote a let­ter to the Ottoman ca­liph for help. Instead of ex­tend­ing help, the ca­liph be­trayed Tipu Sultan by hand­ing over the let­ter to the British gov­ern­ment (By Dr Mubarak Ali)

1/#Turkey had well established "soft power" lines of influence throughout the Greater #MiddleEast (North #Africa, Horn of Africa, Eastern #Mediterranean, etc.).
2/But now #Turkish leaders are ready to assume greater risk to assert overt military power in an expeditionary manner to expand #Turkey's influence, and therefore leverage, on conflicts beyond the country's near abroad (#Libya being farther than say #Cyprus or #Syria).
3/However #Turkish leaders don't want to risk significant casualties to their own forces in these expeditionary ops, whether far away like in #Libya or closer to home like in #Syria, when #Turkey's military has spent so much time and $$ building a proxy force of #Syrian fighters.

#SDF positions in northeastern #Syria "very weak" against #Turkey-backed forces, per #SDF Gen. Mazloum Kobani Abdi, speaking thru translator on a teleconference

He describes the situation as "frustrating...We trusted the security mechanism sponsored by the United States”
“We are now preparing ourselves for a long military operation that might take more than a year,” per #SDF Gen Abdi on #Turkey incursion in NE #Syria
“They want to attack all the Kurdish towns…they want to destroy all of our area” says #SDF Gen Abdi of #Turkey's military operation in NE #Syria, saying Turkey will turn the area into "another #Idlib"

1. STATE DEPARTMENT

"First of all, the United States will not endorse this invasion; it will not give it any kind of political cover or in any way think that it is a good idea. It endangers our allies in the fight against terror, the #SDF, most of whom are from the region.
2. They’re not #PKK members per se, but they’ll fight for their homelands. Secondly, it undercuts our efforts to defeat #ISIS by drawing these SDF forces away from the battle in the south and, frankly, forcing our troops to focus on the military aspects of the invasion.
3. And then thirdly, it creates tremendous insecurity for the entire region.

Secondly, the United States will not give any military support. That was asked by the #Turks at various levels at various times, including in the call on Sunday. That was made clear to the Turks.

Shame on DeepState #ForeignPolicy Journal. For Years #Turkey has been hosting 3+ Million #refugees from #Syria (Not like EU concentration camps accepting a few thousands!). They deported a few 1000s without documents & this attack?! - - - foreignpolicy.com/2019/08/08/tur…
An Amazing Example Of Distorted, Spun & Twisted Reporting for “Targeted” Attacks Against #Turkey. #FP should ask #EU & #USA: How many refugees from #Syria Are you willing to host & house in US/EU? And then print the “official response” for all to see!!!!!
Let’s Get The Facts Straight On #Syria Refugees In #Turkey: 1-Millions provided Housing;2- Millions Provided Healthcare; 3- Million+ W/ Work Permits; 4-All Children Provided With Public Education; 5- 10s Of 1000s In #Turkey Universities ...6- With 99% of #Turks Hospitable to Them
