To understand what impact Afghanistan can have on Kashmir, we need to go back 34 years in history, to 1987, to see how insurgency started in Kashmir, find if Afghanistan impacted Kashmir back then? What changed since — and we’ll probably have answer to our question!

If you’re a hyper-nationalist who prefers sponsored takes by a sponsored think-tanks over local perspectives, stop reading. If you’re an India police officer who doesn’t use OSINT at work, picks FIR register when he reads something that doesn’t suit the narrative, stop reading.
While #Kashmir has been under Indian rule since 1947, the insurgency only started in 1987 after Indian govt collaborated with a local pro-India political party, allegedly rigged state assembly elections to defeat dominant separatist political alliance, Muslim United Front (MUF).

श्रीमान @rautsanjay61 विचारतायत की, नेहरूंशी वैर का? राऊतांनी विचारलेल्या प्रश्नाचे उत्तर मी या थ्रेडमध्ये देतोय,
नेहरूंनी त्यांच्या कारकीर्दीत अभिव्यक्ती स्वातंत्र्याची आणि लोकशाही मूल्यांची अनेकदा गळचेपी केली. त्याची ही काही उदाहरणे (१/n)
नेहरूंनी केंद्रीय कायदामंत्री #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांना डावलून गोपालस्वामी अय्यंगार यांच्या हातून कलम ३७०चा मसुदा तयार करून घेतला आणि लोकसभेत बळजबरीने मंजूरही करून घेतला. देशाच्या कायदामंत्र्याला डावलून घटनादुरुस्ती झाल्याची ही भारतातली एकमेव घटना आहे. (२/n)
कलम ३७० हे भारत आणि भारतीयांवर अन्याय करणारे आहे असे #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांचे ठाम मत होते. कारण, नेहरूंनी जम्मू-काश्मीर विधानसभेला अमर्याद अधिकार देऊ केले होते. (३/n)

The Government of India ordered widespread suspension of internet services in #Kashmir again, without complying with the #AnuradhaBhasin guidelines.

This took place just as the Standing Committee on IT was travelling to J&K, and we wrote to them👇🏽 1/n…
The #AnuradhaBhasin guidelines laid down a constitutional framework where access to information via the internet was recognised as a fundamental right. Restrictions to such access must be: temporary, limited in scope, lawful, necessary & proportionate.

A review is mandatory. 2/n

Enforced disappearances in Kashmir - a thread, read below! 👇🏾 (art: @hailsuhail) #EnforcedDisappearanceDay #indianOccupiedKashmir
August 30 marks the International Day of the Disappeared. #EnforcedDisappearances consists of a kidnapping, carried out by agents of the State or organized groups of individuals who act with State support or tolerance, in which the victim “disappears.”
#India has subjected 8,000 to 10,000 Kashmiris to enforced disappearances in Indian-occupied Kashmir. Under India’s occupation and ongoing #settlercolonialism of #Kashmir, enforced disappearances have been used as a tool to suppress Kashmiris and their resistance against India.

"Aarif Khan was the nom de guerre of a local militant"

“We had to implement the #Shariah, the #Taliban & #AlQaeda way.”

This is the article for which #AasifSultan was taken to jail. Far from a #journalistic circus - it was highlight of a freedom struggle in #Kashmir.....

..which might be categorized as a '#TerrorSpeech' issue.

It is certainly not the #Western '#FreedomOfExpression'. The #Kashmiri expressions was not constructed that way, with Western norms.

The website is already down, so I wanted to take some snaps.
Is there a chance for this article not to attract state's wrath? By that word, I mean the #IndianState.

To all #Indians out there participating in the #FreeAasifSultan hashtag, do you respect our existence?

If you don't, what does your #solidarity, or mockery - stand for?

Throughout the history of Indo-Pak region, we had the intellectual dwarfs telling us what #Muslims should do. How dare Muslims to live under Muslim rule?

#ColonialFeminism has been in existence as long as #feminism, almost a joke now (but we have to care, to protect #Kashmir 1/n
..from this species).

Earlier, we exchanged our destiny with massacres & genocides for #Hindu rulers, or the #secularists.

The #fascist outburst in recent decades turned them as 'guardians of Muslims', framing it as '#Hindutva vs. #Secularists', imposing #Ambedkar as the.. 2/n
...solution with a holy excuse of #Dalit discourse (one more #Hindu).

But as the tide is rising, the two nation theory is back again with full force. And Insha Allah we will see many more #Islamic #republics in #Kashmir, #Maldives, #EastPakistan & elsewhere.

in all the discussions about #Afghanistan and Pakistan's independence, we seem to have forgotten about Occupied and Illegally Annexed Kashmir. this is what is happening: school teachers are told that if they don't hoist the Indian flag tomorrow, they will lose their jobs> #IOJK
>shopkeepers have been directed to not shut down tomorrow or their shops will be seized. we've already seen how the #Indian police & #army have been breaking into peoples' shops & forcibly opening them. @POTUS talks about democracy and democratic values. here's a test case. #IOJK
>@POTUS has to decide. is the talk about democracy and rights mere rhetoric when it comes to a 'strategic partner' or will be walk the talk? #India #Occupation #IOJK

The #KabulRegime had 20+ years to improve its ties with its neighbors and to align with interests of the countries that share its borders with Afghanistan ,but instead it chose isolation and align itself with Arch rivals of #Pakistan & #china -India
As the war continued to ravage the country, Kabul regime under Karzai and Ghani filled their own pockets and plagued the entire country with corruption. Russians, and Chinese continued to play proxy through Taliban, giving them much needed military support against America.
With much of “arm twisting” and “do more” rhetoric from Imperial powers, #Pakistan used its influence to bring #Taliban to negotiating table for lasting peace, yet it was arrogance of Renegades in Kabul who refused to work towards the betterment of #Afghan people.

Today, 5th August 2021, marks 2 years of atrocities in Indian illegally Occupied Kashmir.

Part :- 1
Pak's puppet govt could do nothing for Kashmiris. On this occasion, if Pakistan had a truly democratic govt, it would have sided with the Kashmiris.
Part :- 2
The problems of Kashmiris cannot be solved by renaming the road and standing on the road for five minutes. Unless you take Practical steps.
Part :- 3

#Article370 | Today marks two years since the Indian government abrogated Kashmir’s special status by reading down Article 370 of the Constitution.

The Caravan’s ground reports from #Kashmir:
“The bottom line is that they cannot accept it and swallow that there is a Muslim-majority state in India. So, they want to change the demography of the state,” Arif said.

Praveen Donthi’s dispatch from August 2019:
Archives | “Yahan kisiko bhool hai ki is qaum ko daba liya hai”—Some people here have the wrong impression that they have silenced this community, Abdul Qadir Bhat Pathan said. “There is a lava building here. It will explode like a bomb one day.”

#Kashmir #IIOJK was recently asked about UNSC Res 47 and that it called on Pakistan to withdraw first. Something Indians like to propagate. Let me set the record straight. UNSC Res 80 adopted in March 1950 reversed this by calling for simultaneous withdrawal of troops by both 1/5
India and Pakistan. Interestingly, India at that time was a non-permanent member of the UNSC and DID NOT vote against the resolution thereby accepting the Pakistani position that a simultaneous withdrawal of troops should take place 2/5
The resolution also defacto accepted AJK by equating AJK troops with J&K (IIOJK) troops. Now this is something that sadly, not enough Pakistanis or Kashmiris are aware of. The point is unless we do our research we cannot argue a case convincingly 3/5

BREAKING: This morning, right-wing Hindu American organizations held an event on #Kashmir near the U.S. Capitol this morning without any Kashmiri Muslim speakers, instead serving as a gathering for far-right individuals and organizations.

Read more:…
One such speaker was Cliff Smith, Washington Project director for the Middle East Forum (MEF), a conservative think tank that has been described as “the center of the Islamophobia network” in the United States.
According to Georgetown University’s Bridge Initiative, MEF and its founder Daniel Pipes “were cited numerous times in Anders Breivik’s manifesto detailing the far-right mass murderer’s motivations for his July 2011 attack that resulted in the death of more than 70 Norwegians.”

1/9 Greek FM hs said INDIA, GREECE & UAE will hold a trilateral dialogue. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
1️⃣Turkey cld be looking to acquire NUCLEAR wpns(rpts Greek media).
2️⃣ Greece dominates the sea opening towards Turkey via CRETE island.👇
India & UAE might utilise it.
2/9 Crete played a significant role during US’s missions in middle east.
Island ws under Ottoman control earlier.
3️⃣Partnering with Greece comes with another benefit for UAE & INDIA—v use similar platforms like Mirage 2000 (Greece & India) & #Rafale (UAE,Grc & Ind).But
3/9 Qatar recently agreed to deploy 36 of it’s fighter jets in Turkey, which inclds Mirage 2000 & Rafale. Media reports speculate, these can be accessed by Pakistani & Turkish pilots. For obvious reasons this hasn’t gone down well with India & Greece. (pic Pak-Turk joint ex 👇)

> Ceasefire declared by UN in the midst of PakArmy retreat after suffering heavy losses.
>UN constituted a 3member committee with members from India,Pakistan& on from neutral country agreed by both the nation to look into the matter.
