Pakistan welcomes the re-election of India PM Narendra Modi to a second term. He makes Indian history. In this #thread, I explain why Islamabad is pleased to see #Modi win & how a historic opportunity emerges to resolve #Kashmir, make peace./1
Ahmed Quraishi @AQpk #AhmedQuraishi
During the dogfight over #Kashmir skies in Feb 2019, when a #Pakistan-#India nuclear war became a possibility, unprecedented international diplomatic intervention diffused tensions & averted war. But unlike previous crises, many things changed this time. One: world listened to
#Pakistan this time instead of just listening to #India. The 6-times smaller country was always smothered under the attention that India received globally. This time, #NewDelhi overreached, crossed int'l borders to conduct airstrike inside Pak. Strike failed, pilot captured.

A note as a private citizen, not a journalist (if you'd allow me that separation):
To all the BJP supporters cheering, celebrating, and gloating about the results - consider doing something for the rest of us. Tell us we are wrong. Not with angry, hateful, boastful words.
But with words that assure us that, this resounding victory does not make you think you are no longer accountable to those who did not vote for you. That our questions do not make us unworthy of being treated as equal citizens of this country, with valid concerns and voices.
That you do not condone the violent language Mr Shah just used on stage against us. That you do not condone that this win is being greeted with Hindu chants outside the BJP office. That "secularism," like the PM scoffed, is not a dirty word to you. That hate speech is not okay.

Coming up, my final pre poll assessment for Lok Sabha 2019 elections and give state wise numbers and also share analysis, along with key insights on this thread, starting today. This thread will be interactive.
Will cover southern States followed by East, West and North.
Tamil Nadu forecast for 2019
DMK – 19 (32%)
Congress – 2 (7%)
VCK – 1 (1%)
ADMK – 9 (28%)
PMK – 3 (6%)
BJP – 2 (4%)
DMDK – 1 (3%)
AMMK – 2 (6%)
It doesn't appear to be a clean sweep by DMK front as predicted by many. ADMk front is also doing decent
Both the Dravida parties are not the same force, they used to be, under their late founders. Little wonder, both the parties have conceded nearly half the seats to their smaller allies. The ADMK front has bigger allies as compared to DMK which only boasts of Congress. NDA has 3

1/ NEW WORKING PAPER on #InternetShutdown-s and protest in #India based on thousands of data points from 2016. Bottom line: shutdowns are followed by a clear *increase* in violent protest & have very ambiguous effects on peaceful demonstrations. #KeepItOn papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf…
2/ India has recorded by far the highest number of shutdowns of any country in the 🌏 - a staggering 134 (per @NetShutdowns) just last year, largely in an attempt to quash protest. What this paper shows is that this kind of repression does not achieve what it sets out to achieve.
3/ I used data from @ACLEDINFO+@icews on 1000s of violent & non-violent events, teasing out categories of organizing parties. AFAIK this is the 1st statistical analysis of large-scale blackouts and offline dissent at this scale, in the country where they happen the most - #India.
