Bhaderwah, for me, has been the most beautiful part of #Jammu, for its verdant scenic beauty, beautiful narrow valleys, lush green grasslands, snow-tipped mountains, and temples. This place evokes awe and can be mesmerizing for anyone visiting here.
This ancient kingdom of Bhaderwah was known as Bhadrakashi (a good place to rest at) or Bhadravaksha(the happy region/the good bosom) and was culturally linked to the nearby #Chamba kingdom, which, in turn, was an southeastern appendage of the larger Dogra sphere of influence.
#Rajatarangini refers to its existence as an inhabited area in 112-128 AD. It's widely believed that this region used to have an ancient capital called #Dughanagar(Presently Sartingal) and #Pandavas defeated its last king. Jobnath.

This is a letter issued by the #FarooqAbdullah government in the year 1997, to the revenue department to identify a land for a #Muslim colony in Sidhara (Jammu), which was a #Hindu majority.
This was under a design to islamise the entire state of J&K.

(1/n)
The ever increasing settlement of #Muslim minority in the #Jammu division was being noticed by all. Well, it is a free country without any restrictions on movement and it did not invite any objection from the #Hindu majority. Gradually, suspicions arose.

Why was encroachment of forest land in #Bhatindi and surrounding areas remaining unnoticed by the state administration and why through a systematic pattern, the forest land was allowed to be occupied by the #Muslim minority only?

1. PM @narendramodi ji and @amitshah ji are very much clear about aspirations of #Jammu. But many experts and analysts are hell bent upon to confuse the situation by presenting old ideas which led to failure of Delhi in J&K in last 73 yrs.
2. Hon'ble PM @narendramodi ji J&K is problem of development and people connect . People are fed up of installed leaders . They don't want to be experimenting lot any more .
3. After 5th August again these analysts and so called experts are again trying to keep focus on kashmir for their minting money and projecting five star activists sitting at Delhi and Mumbai as voice of J&K and ignoring Jammu. This is dangerous.

On #WorldHeritageDay I showcase the soul of #Dogra people & the epicentre of their modern history. The images will also reveal how if you want to squash a voice, you erase their history & self-esteem. This site has been a victim of loot, pillage & arson. #MubarakMandi #Jammu
The #MubarakMandi Palace complex holds 300 yrs of Dogra history within itself. With over 20 palaces built over 200 years starting at 1710 it is unlike any other. From here the Dogra rulers reigned over their sprawling kingdom.
For over 200 years, they ruled over an area that stretched from the Pir Panjal mountain range in the north, the plains of Punjab to the South to Ladakh & Tibet in the east.

Organisation of islamic countries is hand-holding the J&K Govt in executing this nefarious agenda of wiping out #Hindus

Dear @AxisBank & @DrJitendraSingh Ji & @AmitShah Ji @jkstartups . Since 5th Aug 2019, businesses have suffered like hell. Instead of creating a support system for the #startups or #businesses, Banks have started sending notices to the #properitors/#companies in #UTJK.
Instead of revoking #intrests on us in such political turmoil. We had no role to play in this turmoil, #UTJK economy was held hostage under these notices silently.
Sir was that our fault that u had to close out all communication / shut business 4 such long time 2 regain strength
If not, then why should I suffer.
I was a regular payer of my instalments for Loan taken for business. I am not funded by anyone and neither I fall under any of your policies because I have started and @JKEDI4U never supports established business.
Yes we are dependent on #Banks.

#BabaBhair #PehrDevta
When Raja Jas Dev, who has the credit of founding Jasrota, was ruler of Jammu, a strange condition prevailed in Jammu that streets and bazars became infested with scorpians and snakes. Many people died of the bites of these deadly insects. All cooked dishes
of hunted fish in the royal palace became full of insects and scorpians. Raja went to temple, worshipped but nothing availed. Then he dreamt that a white snake came furiously riding a fish. It changed into a human being and acquired a terrible form, holding fish in both of his
hands, snakes entwined around his neck. The king was terrified and he asked his name and his purpose of coming. He uttered that he was Raja Bhairh(Pehr)Dev. He said that Almighty has appointed him the guardian of Jammu territories and his abode is in the water of Tauh/Tawi

I watched #Shikara yesterday. Trauma of leaving our homes & natural habitat in the beautiful valley is unbearable. While our parents were busy picking up our lives, they kept their trauma under cover. I start this thread today to begin a conversation on our exp. post displacement
This experience may help countless others to build and gain strength.After watching #Shikara and reading so many stories of KPs, it helped me put many things into perspective. Most significantly, I have respect for our community who put love above hate. So, let us hear and share.
My parents were in their late 20s when the burden of leaving their established life & homeland happened to them. They re-started their life from scratch in #Jammu. My father took a room on rent as he was worried for our future. He had 2 young daughters and wife to take care of.

Watched #Shikara.
It has secularised the #HinduGenocide in #Kashmir and romanticised it for the mega bucks it will make.
Our homes and murders are a mere prop in this story.
Massacres, rapes and vandalised temples must've been too gory to qualify for even a prop, in a love story.
It reeks of the bhaichara politics of @VVCFilms right through
Blaming American guns
Disparaging the #Ayodhya movement
Rationalising #Jihad and cleverly masking its underlying #HinduHate
Glossing over the judicial apathy
Mocking at the help rendered by a 'Party' in the camps...
Airbrushed #Islam as a non-issue
Underplayed #Jihad as mere stray events
Exaggerated exceptions of individual warmth over deep society wide hostility.
Gross simplification of the issue of our return.
#Shikara like #Padmavat turns #HinduGenocide into entertainment for commerce.

#BasantPanchami #Jammu
Basant, the Festival of Spring was celebrated with great enthusiasm in the Kingdom of Jammu Kashmir. The rich, the poor, Muslims, Hindus - all wore yellow turbans.
The women dressed in yellow from head to toe, whether they were young or old and all you saw was yellow in all directions.
It was not as if this was done on Royal Orders. People did so because they wanted to celebrate this Festival.

We hear of KP exodus from Kashmir.Not so much of the exodus from #JammuHills for similar reasons - Jihadi Terrorism which grips #JammuAndKashmir
Today I tell you abt a KP family who left the Valley during the tribal raids in 1947 & settled in #Jammu #Bhaderwah. The Koul family.
The matriarch Smt Sukhmali Koul, made #Bhaderwah #Jammu her home & went onto become the first Lady teacher in the area, also setting up a school for girls. Giving back to her community, in the best way she could.
A few generations down, the fly remains committed to their region & nation. Ruchir Kumar Koul marries a beautiful Bhaderwahi girl in 1989. 5 yrs into the marriage, Rucher was gunned down by terrorists. He left behind two small children, 3 & 5 yrs old & a 26 yr old wife.

The capture of #Zojila was one of the most important operations of 1947-48 #JammuKashmir war. It not only established the supremacy of the Indian Army, it saved Ladakh from falling into the hands of the enemy.
On this fateful day on November 1st, in 1948 young Capt SDS Jamwal of 7 Cavalry, with his 11 Tanks cleared Zojila Pass of Pakistani Army's occupation. This enabled a passage for linking up with Leh garrison, which was surrounded by Pak Invaders descending from Skardu side.
Coy of 5/8 GR supposed to be supporting Captain Jamwal’s break through, made contact with him much later on the other side.
Young Captain Jamwal 's dare devilry of breaking through the enemy defense also contributed to changing the fortunes of Leh.

The plan to invade the Riyasat of #JammuAndKashmir wasn't born in #Lahore but in the residence of #Jinnah at #Aurangzeb road #NewDelhi . Here in the spring of 1947 Col. Akbar Khan & some #Muslim officers of the #British #Indian #Army hatched this plot .
#KashmirAccessionDay26Oct
It was only in October 1947 that Maj. Onkar Singh Kalkat of the Bannu Brigade #PakistanArmy who had not yet been repatriated to #India found files marked Operation Gulmarg Secret while looking for some other documents in the office of Brigadier Murray at NWFP.
Even though he was nearly arrested & sent to #Lahore , Maj.Onkar somehow made it out to #NewDelhi & told the #IndianArmy top brass about the file he had sern which detailed an invasion of #JammuKashmir by tribesmen. He wasn't taken seriously by the Brass .

Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija Mufti on Friday asked whether J&K was an integral part of #India or a colony.

J&K is not a colony. It is an integral part of #India. It is #Kashmir based parties who treated India as their colony by playing the separatist card.
Iltija Mufti also said that that #Article370 had nothing to do with development.

Only a person who lives outside the state can afford to be so ignorant. Iltija Mufti lives in Chennai and enjoys all the facilities which are not available here in #Kashmir.
#Article370 and 35A were responsible for J&K's backwardness while only benefiting a select few like the separatists, politicians of mainstream political parties of #Kashmir and their families.

While I have deep respect for India and its important relationship with the US, I condemn the revocation of #Article370 & #Article35A, the imposed comms blockade, suppression of life-saving medical care, and reports of widespread human rights violations in #Jammu and #Kashmir.
The communication blockade doesn’t just mean people cannot get in touch with their families, it also means shortages of medicine and an inability to receive medical care. nytimes.com/2019/08/14/tec…
And multiple reports indicate that over 3,000 people have been indefinitely detained without charges by the Indian government under the Public Safety Act, including children, lawyers, doctors, religious leaders, and opposition political leaders.
