2. Recurrent famines, floods, incompetent n lazy rulers from within, exploitative rulers from outside, n the regular changes in the state religion moving b/w #Buddhism, #Hinduism, #Sunni Islam & #Shia Islam make Kashmir a hotbed of unrest over centuries with millions of deaths!
3. Here are few kings who contributed to the glorious periods in Kashmir.

1/6. The government of #India's media and Internet blackout in Punjab (home to a large Sikh population) should not be tolerated by the international community.

It's time #Ottawa takes the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to task for this.…
2/6. This is not the first time the #BJP government has engaged in egregiously undemocratic behaviour - the ongoing human rights violations and atrocities in Kashmir are just one example.
3/6. The #BJP is an extension of the Hindutva nationalist org, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which wants to shape #India into a country run by and for its Hindu majority.

#RahulGandhi defies and disrespects every democratic institution, whether it is the Parliament or the judiciary. He should come out of this dynastic mindset and realise that no individual is bigger than the country, bigger than the Constitution of India: #PiyushGoyal Image
We have institutions of high integrity in this country whose working has never been questioned by anybody. Unfortunately, Rahul Gandhi has never respected high Constitutional offices, including the office of his own PM Dr #ManmohanSingh: #PiyushGoyal
I would urge #RahulGandhi if he represents the politics of truth and love as he claims, he must come to terms with the fact that today PM #NarendraModi is the most loved, admired & the most trusted leader in #India and across the world: Union Minister #PiyushGoyal

The Lahore Resolution: A 🧵

#OTD in 1940, the All-India Muslim League adopted the Lahore Resolution—which later came to be known as the Pakistan Resolution—during its three-day general session, which was held in #Lahore from March 22–24.

A. K. Fazlul Huq, the Prime Minister of #Bengal, presented the resolution, which was authored and compiled by Muhammad Zafarullah Khan and served as a formal statement of the party's vision for the future of Muslim #India.

The document famously stated that "...the areas in which the Muslims are numerically in a majority as in the North Western and Eastern Zones of India should be grouped to constitute ‘independent states’ in which the constituent units should be autonomous and sovereign."

1) #US Intel Helped #India Rout #China in 2022 Border Clash

US gave real-time intel of Chinese positions, force strength in advance of a #PLA incursion

This caught the PLA off-guard, enraged Beijing, forced them to reconsider its approach to border grabs…
2) It made a difference.

The subsequent clash on Dec. 9 involving hundreds of troops wielding spiked clubs and Tasers did not result in any deaths as previous encounters have, rather it was limited to a dozen or so injuries and – most conspicuously – a Chinese retreat.
3) “They were waiting. And that’s because the U.S. had given India everything to be fully prepared for this,” the source says. “It demonstrates a test case of the success of how the two militaries are now cooperating and sharing intelligence.”

#SAT Update✨

Cyber-attack on #Khalistan Referendum in Australia caused disruption in voting thrice.

This, coupled with the arrest of #AmripalSingh in India & a mega crackdown in the Indian state of #Punjab is causing ripples.

A 🧵

Mobile internet remained down in #IndianPunjab as the police searched & chased people associated with 'Waris Punjab De' - a collective headed by Amritpal Singh, that supports an independent Punjab.

Sideways, in #Brisbane, the 2nd phase of #KhalistanReferendum came under alleged India-backed #cyberttack on electronic voting machines.

The 1st attack took 30 minutes to be fixed & the other 2 took 20 mints each.

The turn out of the voting was 11,000.
