I have heard many heartbreaking stories from #Kashmir and the plight of #KashmiriPandits. But here is one that really got to me. Today I would like to share the story of Sarvanand Kaul Premi in this thread. @AdityaRajKaul @sunandavashisht @AartiTikoo @DrAmbardar
Sarvanand Kaul Premi was born on 1st November 1924 in #Anantnag, #Kashmir. He studied in Punjab University and graduated with the highest merit. Not only was he extremely well educated - he also took part in the Quit India movement as a social activist. #QuitIndia
For 8 years, his blood, sweat and tears went into the fight for an independent India. He also wrote for newspapers, such as the Daily Khidmat. He ended up authoring ~24 books and many more articles & poems. They are mostly in #Hindi, #Urdu and of course, #Kashmiri.

Organisation of islamic countries is hand-holding the J&K Govt in executing this nefarious agenda of wiping out #Hindus
from #Jammu too😡
The unscrupulous legislative powers were used as shield by ex-CM's who indulged in anti-india activities & very much in line with all #Jihadi outfits to establish #Caliphate in entire J&K region!

Always remember this: it's not about #CAA or #NRC or #AyodhyaVerdict or #Article370. It's about the solid Sanatana civilization slowly reasserting itself.
The greatest hope that the Indian National Congress (Pakistan) party banked on was a repeat of 2004 in 2019 - a shock loss of the BJP at the elections.
The manner in which @narendramodi overturned it and resoundingly pounded a desperate coalition of 20+ parties is what has led them to incite a civil war right in Delhi.

3). “In 1947 when Jammu and Kashmir acceded to India the ruler of the State Maharaj Hari Singh signed the same standard form of the Instrument of Accession which the other major Indian States signed, it was not subject to any exceptions or pre-conditions!” (pp VII).

The White House, on Friday, said that any successful dialogue between #India & #Pakistan would be possible only if #Pakistan cracks down on terrorists&extremists on its territory.

Tensions with #Pakistan spiked after the revoking of special status of J&K on Aug 5 2019.
"We continue to believe a core foundation of any successful dialogue between the two (Indian&Pak) is based on continued momentum in #Pak's efforts to crack down on terrorists and extremists on its territory. So we continue to look for that," an official of the White House said.
The White House official's comments came after the FATF retained #Pakistan on the 'Grey List' with a stern warning from the global anti-terror financing watchdog to complete the 27-point action plan it has been given by June 2020 or face being put on the 'Black List'.

Let's Understand the Economics of Abrogation of #Article370 from #Kashmir

This world moves on economics. Everything else is just a catalyst. Including Religion.

Why Pakistan is so shaken up by removal of #Article370 by India ?
1/n
Reason 1 : Kashmiri #Apple

#Kashmir provides 70% of apple production in India. It earns Rs.8000 crore annually from export of apple. 8 Lakh hectares of land in Kashmir is under apple farming. But the farmers of Kashmir gets Rs.3 to 15 per kg of apple

2/n
...which is sold in the market anywhere from Rs 100 - 150 per Kg. So where goes rest of the money?

Its goes to the relatives of Abdullah, Muftis, Geelani & Sabbir Ahmed...

Yes these politicians who have build huge properties in US, Europe & India...

How do we understand the editorial ideology of a magazine like #TheEconomist ? A thread that raises some questions to the magazine. I recently read articles from the below 6 editions with some observations. You can read & decide if same questions hit your mind. @TVMohandasPai
@TheEconomist takes note of major economic reforms but choses to overshadow those by “Hindu nationalist goals” like Kashmir lockdown. Hindu-Nationalist ? I don’t see Chinese nationalist or English nationalist being used. So how does patriotism in India becomes Hindu nationalism?
#TheEconomist says #Modi achieved “unusual unity amongst Hindus” & his victory has “settled the debate in favor of Hindutva”. In a 80% Hindu country, what’s wrong with “unity amongst Hindus” ? You want to see us divided as before?

He now moves to the 1972 SC decision in Mohd.Maqbool Damnoo: indiankanoon.org/doc/713534/

(Background: In Damnoo, an amendment to Art 370 was made much like in the way it was done in the recent abrogation orders and the same was upheld by the SC)

12/n
Nevertheless, he tries to differentiate the recent abrogation orders and the exercise which was scrutinised in Damnoo.

He argues that in the Damnoo instance, there was an amendment of the J&K Constitution itself, prior to the amendment of the Indian Constitution.

13/n
'Art 370 does not control the power of amendment of the J&K Constitution since it is not a creation of the Indian Constitution but of the original proclamation made by the Raja', adds Dwivedi

Given this, Art 370 cannot be used for repealing the J&K Constitution itself.

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul agrees with Dhavan and says to the Counsel arguing for reference,

"If you think that this Bench cannot put quietus to the question then argued on the preliminary issue of reference only, not on the substantive questions involved."

This has to be said. All those trips to the US -- the Madison Garden, the Howdy Modi, the hugs -- none of it even earned a phone call after the US took out an Iranian leader.

And everyone knows India's major strategic interests in Iran.

Time to wake up and smell the...?
In sharp contrast, even the Pakistan Army Chief, a man whose extension has been deemed illegal by the Supreme Court -- got a call to inform him about the assassination.

Where is India's relevance in the global order, positive or negative?
And while some retired MEA officials will pooh pooh this away.

What former NSA, @ShivshankaMenon said needs to be read carefully. India is getting isolated, and it has more and more diplomatic IoUs to fulfill post #article370 and #CAA

Dear @FarOutAkhtar, noticed your regret over the WRONG Map of India which is a give-away that you have been misled on #CAA
Sharing a THREAD on implications of #CAA, also debunking unfounded lies and falsehood.
Please spread it to your Muslim followers for peace & calm to prevail.
@FarOutAkhtar 2. Here is THE CITIZENSHIP (AMENDMENT) ACT, 2019 as published in The Gazette of India. Whoever wants to form an opinion on #CAA should read at least this 2-page amendment first:
CC: @FarOutAkhtar

@FarOutAkhtar 3. #CAA gives people of Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Parsi, and Christian faiths fleeing "RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION" from Pakistan, Bangladesh, & Afghanistan, who reached India on or before Dec 31, 2014 - a ONE TIME pardon to make them eligible for citizenship of India.
