Today, a boy, Tawseef Bhat was beaten ruthlessly by @JmuKmrPolice at Khudwani, which resulted in multiple fractures and an eye injury. He had a medical emergency and even having a permit in hand which t was issued by District Magistrate, he was stopped. #Kashmir
While returning from Srinagar, he said he was stopped at khudawani. He showed them the permit which I had, to which they replied "Ye pass kisi aur ko dikhana ye 10 rupai ka dete hai District Magistrate wale, ye aise hi pass dete hain"

Is that the way you treat a person in need?
He was brutally beaten up despite the fact that he was carrying the permit. They even further started beating his Uncle and Aunt, knowing the fact that she had just gone through a surgery. He was later hospitalised in Kulgam District hospital.

The two kids (my nieces) who tested positive in the morning are left for themselves at the hospital, JLNM, Rainawari. One, they have created confusion within the family as to which of the two kids are positive. As three more children of the family are admitted in the same ward.
Two, no doctor has visited them since morning. So far, they have not received any treatment or care. Neither have they been isolated from other members of the family. The family, the mother and the children themselves are scared like anything.
Apparently they are asymptomatic, with no symptoms of cough, running nose or fever, but if they have tested positive why such a negligence on part of doctors and healthcare management?

This is a thread. Over how I see the Geo Politics of the world changing because of #CoronavirusPandemic. There are going to be huge change in global political fault lines. This is unprecedented since 2nd war. And the imperialism ended
The release of Omar Abdullah today from prison is a result of the new world order that is emerging. In coming months and days USA is going to focus only on domestic policy and economic situation. USA does have the patience to indulge in domestic squabbling. Things have changed
Indian Economy which was already in a terrible situation has not got into deep muck after #coronavirus & its going to take years for it to be back on track. Under the prevailing circumstances India wouldn’t want trouble in international arena. Hence there is a carrot on #Kashmir

THREAD: In case anyone is interested in seeing how Indian American fascists respond to exposées, here is a glimpse. This is the exec director of the Hindu American Foundation - an org that supports casteism, Islamophobia, & the occupation of #Kashmir. (1/11)
Shukla claims that HAF is not a pro-India group. Then why have they worked closely with the Indian govt to defend its actions (Kashmir/CAA-NRC) in the US—using their resources to deflect any and all criticism of the Hindu nationalist regime? (2/11)
Why would an org that claims to speak for issues that are of “critical importance to Hindus” support legislation that has currently placed #India on a genocide watch? Why is it so important for “Hindu advocacy” to include the settler colonialism of #Kashmir? (3/11)

I have heard many heartbreaking stories from #Kashmir and the plight of #KashmiriPandits. But here is one that really got to me. Today I would like to share the story of Sarvanand Kaul Premi in this thread. @AdityaRajKaul @sunandavashisht @AartiTikoo @DrAmbardar
Sarvanand Kaul Premi was born on 1st November 1924 in #Anantnag, #Kashmir. He studied in Punjab University and graduated with the highest merit. Not only was he extremely well educated - he also took part in the Quit India movement as a social activist. #QuitIndia
For 8 years, his blood, sweat and tears went into the fight for an independent India. He also wrote for newspapers, such as the Daily Khidmat. He ended up authoring ~24 books and many more articles & poems. They are mostly in #Hindi, #Urdu and of course, #Kashmiri.

#HappyWomensDay to all. Like I had promised, I am going to tell you about my biggest inspiration - A common woman who faced unprecedented hardships but she managed to take care of her family and #Dharma in a very hostile #Kashmir. She is just a common woman but is my #Shakti
She grew up in a volat!le #Kashmir where being a #Hindu was a cur$e. She survived a #Kashmir where attacks on #KashmiriHindus was a norm. I am not talking about the 90s Kashmir but much much before that.

She was trained to fight in case someone attacked her home.

At that time, girls used to be married off very early, before they even hit puberty but she wanted to study so instead of getting married, she studied for as long as she could.

Then she got married to Hriday Nath Mattoo (By now some of you know who he is).

My non-validated analysis gleaned over chai of Indian American vote on Super Tuesday & why it favored @JoeBiden:

IA population matters:
CA: 528K TX: 245K VA:103K MA: 77K NC: 57K
Pew estimate: 60% are citizens 80% Dems. ↑↑ turnout.

Huge consolidation for Biden. Why? (Thread)
1. Socialist rhetoric is a non-starter. Indian Americans (IA) left India for a reason & socialist politicians are comic foil there today.

2. Bernie was 1st politician to slam India for fully integrating Kashimr (an enormously popular/emotional issue for IA's). Disastrous move!
Bernie's Congressional proxies are incredibly unpopular among IA's:

1)@PramilaJayapal sponsored anti-India #HRes745-slamming India on Kashmir ignoring #KashmiriPandits
2)@IlhanMN targeted @AartiTikoo during @HouseForeign panel. Her sneering tweets against #CAA, Modi, etc.

The CHEAPEST form of DRUG which serves as aphrodisiac for the inferiority complex laden majority community and gives them a high, is the BLOOD OF MUSLIMS and it will remain so in the future as well , because MUSLIMS have FORGOT HOW TO PAYBACK .

Delhi2020, amidst the ongoing protests against #NRC and Delhi elections and ministers chanting “goli mari salo ko“, Muslims were protesting to save the “democracy and the constitution” with a fear that they might soon be without an identity, and an anticipated event happened

Muslims in the HindutwaRashtra have been forced to be a Recidivist.
Hyderabad, Jammu, Calcutta, Nellie, Bhagalpur, Gujarat, MuzzafarNagar, Delhi, these are just a few names out of many which have witnessed planned #Genocide by the Government and falsely termed as Riots.

On the anniversary of #27FebSupriseDay when #PAF conducted a daring counter attack on #India with #OpSwiftRetort bombing them, shooting 2 #IAF jets & capturing #Abhinandan.

Let’s look at a hidden weapon of #PAF:
Saab 2000 Erieye AEW&C Aircraft

#Indians were extremely scared of this weapon being in the use of a highly professional #PAF & desperately protested with Sweden not to sell.

But #Sweden still sold 6 of SAAB-2000 Airborne Early Warning Control Aircrafts to #Pakistan, 5 with AEW&C systems & 1 as transport.

#Pakistan became 1st customer in the world, with option to purchase 6 S-2000 aircraft with ERIEYE AEW&C, but due to #Kashmir earthquake we reduced order to 4.

When #PAF inducted 4 S-2000s ERIEYE AEW&Cs in 2009, #India sponsored #TTP terrorists to attack #Kamra Base in 2012.

The White House, on Friday, said that any successful dialogue between #India & #Pakistan would be possible only if #Pakistan cracks down on terrorists&extremists on its territory.

Tensions with #Pakistan spiked after the revoking of special status of J&K on Aug 5 2019.
"We continue to believe a core foundation of any successful dialogue between the two (Indian&Pak) is based on continued momentum in #Pak's efforts to crack down on terrorists and extremists on its territory. So we continue to look for that," an official of the White House said.
The White House official's comments came after the FATF retained #Pakistan on the 'Grey List' with a stern warning from the global anti-terror financing watchdog to complete the 27-point action plan it has been given by June 2020 or face being put on the 'Black List'.

Over 94% poll takers believe that local business are getting effected by #InternetShutdowns.
#InternetShutdown means that no small #onlinebusiness can effectively function to use online payment gateways like @GooglePay, @Paytm, @NPCI_BHIM to accept payments especially after #demonetization or to operate via social media channels like @instagram for publicity & orders.
#Kashmir has lost some Rs 1.78 lakh crore ($25 billion) in economic output in the five months since August 2019. This is 11% of the erstwhile state’s nominal gross state domestic product (GSDP) of Rs 1.59 lakh crore for 2018-19. @qzindia…

In Modi we trust ✊🏼

I am going back home ❤️❤️
Is it weird that I cried after reading this news article ?
Is it weird that I have a lump in my throat ?

#Kashmir #kashmirihinduexodus

Waise is proposal ka vishleshan karke aur post karungi.

After reading the article, here is my analysis:
Pros: Temples will be constructed
The townships will be scattered around 10 districts of #Kashmir and if they are anything like the "modern day concentration camps" in Jagti, then we are doomed. It also makes us sitting ducks

Rajasthan police has arrested one accused under section 302 & 307 of IPC and detained two others
Sufiyan, who was accompanying Basit at the time of attack on Feb 05 night tells DH, "There were 8 other waiters in the car who hit him on his head over a small argument of opening the car gate".

Sufiyan had lodged FIR at Harmada police station in #Rajasthan

The body has been sent to Kupwara his hometown in an ambulance @DeccanHerald

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.

My article--

Pak's strategy is to transmogrify Punjab into an ethnically-homogeneous-state by pushing out HINDUS, just like it did in #Kashmir.
Khalistani drug lord Happy PhD ws assisting ISI in it's mission.

And then he crossed a RED LINE.…
2/3 Harmeet Singh aka Happy PhD fell for a married Muslim woman, something that ISI didn't approve of.
Terrorist organisations like Jaish and Khalistani liberation force are ideologically diff and ergo ISI doesn't entertain it's agents irking the other side.
ISI abandoned Harmeet Singh and soon he was killed.

Every Khalistani should tk a leaf out of Harmeet Singh's killing. ISI hs a bigger game plan n it'll sacrifice every Sikh pawn to accomplish it's mission.
Ethnic cleansing is another issue that stares Punjab in it's face.

How Indian history books ignored the reign of King #Lalitaditya Muktapida of Kashmir

He was called the “ALEXANDER OF INDIA”

Under his rule, literature, science, art, architecture, and culture flourished in Kashmir

Builder of The Martand Sun temple in Kashmir
#Lalitaditya was born as third son of Durlabhak-Pratapaditya (Nagvanshi Karkota Kayastha Dynasty) of Kashmir

Karkota Kayastha families were mainly serving in army of the kings of Kashmir since decades

Lalitaditya was one of the most brave Kings India ever saw
When Muktapida took over the Kingdom of Kashmir, it was the same time, when the western invasion had begun

Arab king Mohammad Bin Qasim, was already threatening to occupy Kashmir & central India

But however, the task wasn’t easy since he had to face #Lalitaditya in Kashmir

Let's Understand the Economics of Abrogation of #Article370 from #Kashmir

This world moves on economics. Everything else is just a catalyst. Including Religion.

Why Pakistan is so shaken up by removal of #Article370 by India ?
Reason 1 : Kashmiri #Apple

#Kashmir provides 70% of apple production in India. It earns Rs.8000 crore annually from export of apple. 8 Lakh hectares of land in Kashmir is under apple farming. But the farmers of Kashmir gets Rs.3 to 15 per kg of apple

...which is sold in the market anywhere from Rs 100 - 150 per Kg. So where goes rest of the money?

Its goes to the relatives of Abdullah, Muftis, Geelani & Sabbir Ahmed...

Yes these politicians who have build huge properties in US, Europe & India...

How do we understand the editorial ideology of a magazine like #TheEconomist ? A thread that raises some questions to the magazine. I recently read articles from the below 6 editions with some observations. You can read & decide if same questions hit your mind. @TVMohandasPai
@TheEconomist takes note of major economic reforms but choses to overshadow those by “Hindu nationalist goals” like Kashmir lockdown. Hindu-Nationalist ? I don’t see Chinese nationalist or English nationalist being used. So how does patriotism in India becomes Hindu nationalism?
#TheEconomist says #Modi achieved “unusual unity amongst Hindus” & his victory has “settled the debate in favor of Hindutva”. In a 80% Hindu country, what’s wrong with “unity amongst Hindus” ? You want to see us divided as before?
