Azadi is not an option
A #Thread
What does a misguided #Kashmiri mean by “Azaadi”? Is it the right to #equality, right to #freedom, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion, cultural & educational rights, right to property & right to constitutional remedies
(1/27) ImageImageImage
If that is the meaning of “Azaadi” then it is already entrusted to them through the #constitution then who are these people and why are they asking for Azadi?

The people of #kashim for long have been disassociated with the #progress in mainland due to provisions of #Article_370 which restricted the investment and #development in the state.

In the recent past over #Bakistan SM and Media you will see numerous bytes on civilian injuries and death on #LOC .

But they won't tell before and after part of that frame and the sinister design of #Bakistan & it's Fauj .
It starts from here.

A New Beginning AKA  Azm-e-Nau .

Wherever their govt may say and their fauj may say, they know they can never dream of winning a Open war against India and #IndianArmy , due to obvious reasons.

So with the bloom of internet they focused on #InfoOps .
That's the past and you will find tons of articles on it.
Since 2015 , the border skrimish on #LOC continues and so is #Disinfomation plan of #Bakistan.
They have not left a chance to fool own population and that of #Kashmir .
Be it Surgical strike , #Balakot or any elections in India.
And ofcourse fooling citizens about its fauj.

With 26 top terrorist commanders killed in 7 months, there are less than 200 active #Terrorists in Kashmir with 50 active in North #Kashmir. Terrorists are shifting focus to North Kashmir but they are in for a “Grand Welcome” here by the #IndianArmy.

A #thread
#Terrorism in North #Kashmir in the past few year has waned off due to the relentless anti-terrorist operations by the #Army coupled with its initiatives to reach out to the people through its numerous goodwill activities,..
..thereby gaining the support & trust of the locals. That is why you’ll find the majority of the terrorists active in North Kashmir are #Pakistan #terrorists, with local recruitment at its lowest.

Those who still mistakenly believe it’s #Pakistan that bears responsibility for initiating 1965War need to learn that this war didn’t begin in isolation.

Rather, it followed a sequence of events since 1947 that led India to initiate a full fledged war.



1-October 1947 India initiated the military occupation of the state of Jammu & Kashmir.

But India & Pakistan never crossed intl borders &/or attack each other’s major population centers until #6september.


2-November 1947 India established the Kathiawar Defence Force & initiated the military blockade & occupation of Junagadh.

But India & Pakistan never crossed intl borders &/or attack each other’s major population centers until #6september.

On #DefenceDay some people who seem to have recently awoken to the miracle of reading - have discovered that they can go to Wikipedia, quote Indian/self-selected sources on events of #Kashmir War of 1965 - push a supposed "alternative" narrative and look k3wl.
However, fact remains that on Sept 06 - The overwhelming might of the #IndianArmy crossed the international border against Lahore Sialkot, Gujranwala and Kasur and struck hard. On all these fronts, #PakistanArmy stopped all Indian offensives.
It doesn't matter why the #IndianArmy crossed the international border. We don't celebrate the reasons the Indians crossed the border. On #DefenceDay we celebrate the brave resistance that outnumbered, out-gunned and surprised #Pakistani defenders put.

How Security Forces are changing the narrative in Kashmir post 5 Aug 2019. A #thread

#Kashmir is witnessing a major decline in #terrorists activities post abrogation of #Article370. A major positive shift is the 42% decline in youth joining terror groups this year.
The strategy was multi-pronged: from sustained pin-point operations to dissuading potential recruits from joining #terrorist ranks to social media monitoring to appealing to the "misguided youth" through their mothers.

@neeraj_rajput @Tiny_Dhillon @AlphaWo40963407
Another positive aspect has been that no stone-pelting incidents are being reported during anti-#terrorist operations this year. Stone-pelting protests at the encounter sites had emerged as a major problem for security forces in #Kashmir since late 2016.

Political cartoons have always been a great way to convey the message with impact. This one by Suhail Naqahbandi will stay relevant for all times to come in #Kashmir
The current state of all the parties in Kashmir can be summed up in this cartoon by Suhail. This was created in 2018 & will stay relevant for all times to come in #Kashmir
The problem of electricity in both the regions of JK, is beautifully presented in this cartoon. Created in 2017, still relevant. #Kashmir

In the latest @UNHumanRights letter to #India, 9 UN Special Rapporteurs have raised concern over the widespread human rights violations in #Kashmir, especially #enforceddisappearances #extrajudicialkillings and #torture. Excerpts from the letter are below:
UN SR's have raised concern over sudden closure of the SHRC in Oct 2019 which has left the people of the region with limited legal recourse to seek justice for potential human-rights violations committed against them including enforced disappearances, extrajudicial killings etc.
UN Special Rapporteur's have said that the closure of SHRC has created uncertainty as to how the pending cases will be treated.

Time to ban firing metal pellets to disperse crowds in #Kashmir. Security forces say they deploy only in response to violence, but international law bars use of force causing indiscriminate, unnecessary harm, including against violent protesters @hrw…
Dozens injured when security forces fired pellets to enforce Covid-19 restrictions, disperse peaceful Muharram procession in Srinagar. It led to violent protests, further use of force. Many more injured including 15 officers. Upholding human rights key to stop cycle of violence.
Recent UN guidance says “Multiple projectiles fired at the same time are inaccurate and, in general, their use cannot comply with the principles of necessity and proportionality. Metal pellets, such as those fired from shotguns, should never be used.”…

Acute shortage on weapons with #terrorists in #Kashmir. A #Thread

Terror tanzeems in Kashmir are short on weaponry, they don't have any arms reserve to give weapons to the new recruits, thus in recent attacks there is a desperation to snatch weapons from forces personnel.
The recent Pantha Chowk incident on 29 Aug, was a shoot and run attempt, the intent of the bike-borne #terrorists were to cause casualty and take away weapons, but they failed miserably with all three terrorists being gunned down.
Another instance was seen in #Handwara attack on #CRPF party, one AK-47 rifle was taken away, however, swift counter ops ensured #terrorists who carried out this attack were killed and weapon snatched away from a CRPF jawan was also recovered.

I hope all Bhakt youngsters who are agitated over #pubgban realise that a 4 hour notice of #lockdown left lakhs of poor on the roads, /1
a 4 hour notice of #Demonetisation left lakhs of small businessmen begging in banks for depositing & then withdrawing their own hard-earned money./2
Modi has used this shock and awe policy to leave #Kashmir in seige & let #Kashmiris bleed.
His "suddennness" of Demonetisation left the economy in shambles far before covid hit our country. /3

#IndianArmy bust multiple hideouts along the LOC. Extensive search was launched after suspicious movement from a village close to LOC. After 7 hours search, a huge cache of arms & ammunition were recovered from well concealed locations in two hideouts in #Rampur Sector. #BREAKING
The cache of arms recovered comprises of Five AK Series Rifles (along with six magazines & two sealed boxes with 1254 rounds of AK ammunition), Six pistols (with nine magazines & six rounds), Twenty-one grenades, two UBGL grenades and two Kenwood Radio sets with one antenna.
The plan was to drop warlike stores in caches near the LOC so that OGWs/ terrorists would pick the same for further transportation into the hinterland for terror activities. It shows desperate attempts by Pak based terror groups to infiltrate weapons into Jammu & #Kashmir.

On 28th August Indian Army captured strategic Hajipir Pass situated at a towering height of 8651 ft on the formidable Pir Panjal Range dividing the Srinagar valley from the Jammu area.

The Hajipir pass was a major ingress point for Pakistani infiltrators. The troops of 1 Parachute Regiment fought dauntlessly climbing over 4000 feet during the hours of darkness. Despite the massive downpour were able to oust the infiltrators.
Shamed and disgraced by the might of the Indian Army, the remaining regulars of Pak Army- in the garb of Kabalis, surrendered to our forces.

A big babu confirmed that the scores were rigged to produce an IAS topper from #Kashmir
Only to create an icon who'd inspire the India-haters to become patriots.
That icon AOT called #India the 'Rapistan'
It seems, such idiocy is now rolled out nationally.…
Extra marks to the #Muslims in the interviews isn't enough and also out in the open.
So, #Urdu was added as a subject for the written exams.
When even that didn't help, #Kashmiri in Urdu's script was added to the subjects.
Why not try campus hiring directly from the madrasas now?
Earlier our adversaries used #secularism to deny n deprive #Hindus
Then came '#Muslims have the first right on resources' theory
When #India woke up to these perversions and delivered an unambiguous mandate, it is the hyper patriots now robbing us blind on #UPSC and #scholarships

#Kashmir: [Thread] Militant group 'People's Anti-Fascist Front' (PAFF) released a ‘body-cam’ footage of its recent attack in Keeri, Baramulla in which a policeman and 2 Indian paramilitaries were killed — a few quick observations - [Trigger Warning⚠️]
1) 3 militants are involved in the attack. However, it's not clear, could be more (3-5). The militant who has body-cam (probably smartphone mounted to his body) (A) is the commander. 'A' can be seen giving instructions to other militant(s). 'A' is a Kashmiri, speaks Kashmiri.
2) Well planned attack. The paramilitaries are taken by surprise. The militants are so close to them, but they have no clue. 'A' gestures at another militant (X) who has 2 paramilitaries in his cross hairs, probably tells him he (A) will aim at others, points towards them.

#Kashmir: [unverified] Indian government forces recover dead body of army soldier who was killed last night in ongoing gunfight at Keeri, Baramulla. His body has apparently been mutilated, throat slit, suggests the militant(s) hiding in the area, are Pakistanis/ Foreigners.
It is obvious, the militant(s) fighting/ surviving for so long, is/ are no local, but Pakistani(s)/ Foreigner(s). This encounter turned to be challenging for Indian government forces because it took place in outdoors, in an orchard area, not in a residential building/ area.
In the last encounter in Pulwama when an Indian soldier was killed, the encounter again was in outdoors. Only one militant was killed, 1-2 others escaped. It looks like militants in #Kashmir may have started to prefer outdoor hideouts over taking refuge in residential houses.

#Thread |📺 @ShireenMazari1: #Pakistan's policy bureaucracy and slow diplomacy failed Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI's robust #Kashmir lobbying after 5 Aug. 2019.

I was honored to host her on Sat at @KashmirLobby event. I will show some clips here, then add my analysis
📺@ShireenMazari1: Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI singlehandedly changed #Pakistan's narrative on #Kashmir following India's 5 Aug 2019 actions (when he compared Kashmiri situation to the #Holocaust). But @ForeignOfficePk failed to pick up on that.

📺@ShireenMazari1: Our diplomacy on #Kashmir does not go beyond statements of moral, political & diplomatic support. No work on promoting Kashmiri culture of resistance which is an important part of all resistance movements.
