#History of Pakistan’s Proxy War in #Kashmir
#Thread
1.
1.Three unsuccessful wars of 1947,1965 & 1971 made #Pakistan realize that annexation of #Kashmir was a tough nut to crack through conventional wars after which it resorted to its tried & tested means of Proxy war... ImageImage
2.
..which it had used in #Afghanistan (Operation GIBRALTAR) with a strategy of 'bleeding India by a thousand cuts'. However, the action started in #Kashmir only after 1987 due to its involvement in #Afghanistan
3.
The late President Zia-ul-Haq code named the #Proxy war as Operation #TOPAC as it was his brain child for annexation of Kashmir through an amalgam of subterfuge, subversion, force & religious fundamentalism.. Image

Thread | #BEEF it OR not
Man used to eat meat, before 10000 BCE, however, as Man started Grains cultivation in Indian History, their preference on meat as food decreased. And virtually it was NIL till ~1500 AD
Let us see how it evolved through antiquity

TEETH are first indicators of whether an animal is #HERBIVOROUS or #CARNIVOROUS
Look at the teeth sets of a human dating BCE 7000, They were NOT meat-eaters.

What's our #beef with beef?

Public interest on #climate, #biodiversity & #diet is rightly growing

#Meat is often at the heart of the debate but it's important we look past headlines & unpick the detail

THREAD 👇

#EatBetterMeat #EatOrganic #BBCOne 👉ow.ly/MjQ150xjJI9
Our #meat comes from different #farm systems

When animals are grazed on grass, as in #organic, this can have positive impacts on #climate & #nature. Intensively produced #grain-fed chicken & pigs can have the opposite effect

#EatBetterMeat #EatOrganic 👉ow.ly/MjQ150xjJI9
🐄🐖🐔 Intensively farmed animals are almost always fed on #grain & imported #soya

The production of animal feed can exhaust soils and drive #rainforest clearance

This is devastating for the #climate & #biodiversity

If you’re watching the #Amazon burn and worry about the environment, and if you wonder about #beef and why it is in the news re the environment often, and you’d like to know our view on this then this is the thread for you ...
Climate change and a biodiversity catastrophe are two of the biggest challenges that we face, and the way we think about food, agriculture and, specifically, meat as consumers and as a society is a massive part of that.
It’s true that beef production can be worse for the environment than the production of other foods, especially when those animals are intensively fed with grains and when deforestation occurs to meet demand, which is on the rise globally.

Bradd Witt @UQ_sees work on community #trust in the #beef cattle industry. Biggest survey of its kind in Oz to date (~3000 responses) #agchatoz #sociallicense ImageImage
Bradd + team found very strong postive link between utilitarian attitude towards environment and view that less regulation is better; diet less so Image
Overall, perceptions of trust had very low influence on attitudes around need for industry regulation

My first edition, 1936 copy of Indian Cooking by EP Veeraswamy.
As early as 1936 "Indian" cook books incorporated #beef dishes that were prepared & served in the Madras Presidency.
While this is the oldest cook book I have in my possession, over the years collected multiple first edition regional and local cooks books - Indian Jewish cooking both the Calcutta and the Kerala versions, Malabar Muslims, and others.
Beef was and remains a staple for many in India. To make it a political harbinger and edifying it with nationalism is ridiculous.

Farmers face the biggest Brexit hit and still they don’t think they need to worry! THREAD
In a grim report published on Friday, the #government Agricultural, Horticultural and Development Board @TheAHDB predicted that post-Brexit #farming incomes would fall by 25%. @FarmingUK /1
This wasn’t just in an apocalyptic #NoDeal scenario. If it was, farmers seeing this figure could mutter Project Fear and carry on their arduous work. The problem is that this collapse occurs IN ANY BREXIT SCENARIO @bbcfarmingtoday. /2
It is no exaggeration that entire enterprises, for example poultry production, could be unviable if the AHDB predictions are correct as @RCorbettMEP notes. This is a problem because, in Shropshire @BBCShropshire poultry accounts for 86% of all cattle and livestock. /3
