Paid Ads in certain US news publications are new fad for anti-India propaganda.

A recent ad in the garb of ‘appeal’ on India’s human rights by Islamist fronts affiliated with Jamaat/ISI is most naked attempt so far.

Watching the spat between @Aabhas24, @UnSubtleDesi and Vasundhara Sirnate is interesting. Sirnate is not just a journalist, she was also the co-founder of the extremely #Hinduphobic, Kashmiri separatist Polis Project. 1/9
Vasundhara Sirnate along with Suchitra Vijayan founded The Polis Project. 2/9
The Polis Project called anti-Hindu Delhi riots as "anti-Muslim pogrom" and went to the extent to say Delhi Police was complicit in the violence. 3/9

Authorities in Jammu and Kashmir have decided to truck nomadic families with their livestock returning to Jammu from the highland pastures of Kashmir to ensure "hassle-free vehicular traffic" on the strategic 270-km Jammu-Srinagar national highway (NH44). 50
trucks have been made available, as per a government communique, to transport the tribal families. Meanwhile, several hundred trucks are already stranded on the highway, steering resentment among fruit growers and traders in Kashmir. In protest, fruit mandis in
region have been closed down for two days as Jammu-bound fruit-laden trucks comprise a major part of the stranded fleet. All concerned top police officers have been meanwhile directed by Inspector General Police (Traffic) to take immediate necessary measures so

In another shocking incident, a father has been arrested after two minor girls registered a police complaint accusing him of raping them in the Pulwama district of south Kashmir. A few kilometers away in the same district police arrested a private
school principal for raping his students - two minor sisters. The top police officer in the district told me that investigation has been set into motion and all the angles are being investigated thoroughly. Both the accused are behind
bars. Medical examination of all 4 victims has been conducted. Whether more arrests are expected or not given the cases are part of the investigation. This is the third such incident in the last 6 days in Kashmir.

it is often quite shocking to see that some people here exhibit absolutely no concern about threats to the lives of the people of the #Kashmir valley who perpetually live under the shadow of the gun.
Instead, they are more concerned about whether those people celebrated Pakistani cricket win despite threats, or whether did they wrap the body of martyred Kashmiri in Pakistani flag. This is the limit of callousness.
Why don’t they include #AJK into #Pakistan? Who is stopping them? Why do they want to turn the Kashmir valley’s women & children into cannon fodder by creating a selfish assumption that those women & children should first liberate Kashmir from India & only then Kashmir will be

Government-run internet outages are picking up pace around the world. In 2021, there were 182 shutdowns in 34 countries. #India, largely Jammu and Kashmir, plunged into digital darkness more times than any other country last year.

#LetTheNetWork

theguardian.com/technology/202…
The increasing use of the kill switch underlines a deepening global trend towards digital authoritarianism, as governments use access to the internet as a weapon against their own people. #InternetShutdowns have also become a modern canary in the coal mine.

#KeepItOn
India leads total shutdowns globally. In 2021, the world’s largest democracy shut off its internet 106 times – more than the rest of the world combined. Hardest-hit was the region of Jammu and Kashmir, which was subject to 85 shutdowns.

Demise of Bajwa Doctrine (BD)

In 2017, Bajwa Doctrine was presented to people of Pakistan and the world as Doctrine of realism based on peace and co-existence; as propaganda theme from the platform of ISPR, DGISPR Maj Gen (Now Lt Gen) Asif Ghafoor...

said Gen Bajwa wanted to make Pakistan a peaceful country and referenced the 'doctrine' as the army chief's vision for the country. People of Pakistan were made to believe in it with massive propaganda for which hundreds of millions were spent out of public exchequer.

It promoted democratic future for the country, but it is ending with Neo Fascism and Neo Martial Law imposed in Pakistan.

In #Afghanistan, #India blew $2bn on building hospitals, dams, highways, parliament and more. So, they kept us out of resolution talks but included #Pakistan

Now, we reward them with thousands of tonnes of free wheat. Now they’re killing the remaining handful of #Hindus & #Sikhs
One of our Prime Ministers got our soldiers butchered to defend the integrity of Sri Lanka. He got blown to pieces for that.
This PM is busy bailing them out of bankruptcy and Chinese debt-trap with billions of US dollars of Indian taxpayers.
And they let in a Chinese spy-warship
We give #China $100 Bn/year in imports for illegal occupation of our territory, arming #Pakistan and kicking us on the border to encroach further.
We gave another $100 Bn/year to the #Arab sheikhdoms to humiliate us on our internal issues like democracy, free speech and #Kashmir

Kashmir Pemier League: How business mafia has captured Kashmir cause
Some influential Pakistani & Kashmiri elements who have been making profits out of the blood of Kashmiri people have now solicited services of the Kashmir Premier League (KPL) to enhance their intakes.
For decades these elements have built fortunes out of Kashmir Valley’s blinded children, its sighing and groaning mothers, its devastated widows and orphans and its tortured men, old and young, who go around hiding blood marks on their bodies hidden under their garments.
As elsewhere in the corporate world, this business has also evolved over time, identifying new opportunities along the way and creating relevant tools to exploit them. The establishment of the Kashmir Premier League in 2021 was one such tool.

(A REALLY short one!)

So #Kashmir is trending once again in the Land of the Pure today!
I thought I must share / replug some thoughts tweeted over the past few years in this context.
Here goes!
Firstly, it must be really disappointing for the 'Powers That Be' in Pakistan (Hint: They wear brown pants and run really fast!) to see that Kashmir is not the Top trend!

But then the current Propagandu-in-Chief hardly has the charisma of his predecessor, Shri Ghafoora Ji!
Heck, instead of the lame hashtag (#Kashmir), Ghafoora had managed to get 'Martial' hashtags trending when India had 'dared to' scrap Artical 370!
(Disclaimer: I know the correct spelling of Article. But this is not how the Brown Panted Propagandu-in-Chief prefers to spell it 😂)

Today's #terrorist attack on civilians in #Pulwama has led to death of 1 & injuries to 2.
All of them were non local workers.
It was a grenade attack.
Photo- that's a probably Grenade splinter injury (an injured Civilian)
No Terror tanzeem has claimed the attack as of now. Image
ULF has taken the responsibility of #Pulwama attack.
Coward & new age jihadis with 0 training attacking Civilians and then releasing a statement which is nothing less than a Bollywood script type chest thumping.
@KashmirPolice is there even any categorised Terrorist Umar Wani?
Seeing today's Social Media blitzkrieg of Terrorists, I seriously doubt if the ULF exists as any FORMAL terror Organization.
They might be some Radicalised Terror Interns who might be taking responsibility of attacks executed by TRF/PAFF/LeT/JeM/HuM etc.

A #Police party was fired upon by terrorists in Alochibagh area of Srinagar. No casualties reported.

It's only by God's grace that we don't have any casualties.
Police party retaliated with restraint (built up area).
No confirmation on the Terror Tanzeem involved. Most probably local #Terrorists
#TheResistanceFront has taken the responsibility of the attack. They have claimed to have attacked a 'CARGO UNIT' of JKP who were travelling in a private vehicle.
If that's the case then they won't survive for long. As per TRF, CARGO is notorious. They r quite fearful of CARGO.

Frequent high-speed internet shutdowns, cuts in telephone communication, curfews and the safety of employees are some of the things affecting small businesses in Kashmir.

#Kashmir #LetTheNetWork

economictimes.indiatimes.com/small-biz/sme-…
SMEs that focus on e-commerce and rely on online platforms for marketing and advertising face crippling difficulties because of the frequent internet cuts, especially when high-speed internet connections are suspended.

#InternetShutdown #KeepItOn
This leads to a huge decline in sales. Many have even had to change their business model to survive. This has been a problem for the people of Kashmir since 2012 when the first recorded #InternetShutdown happened.
Read 5 tweets
On August 4, 2019, the government suspended landline, mobile and internet services in Kashmir. The internet shutdown lasted 552 days, until February 6, 2021, making it among the longest communications blackouts ever imposed in a democracy.
#LetTheNetWork

ipi.media/kashmir-unabat…
During most of the shutdown, the internet could only be used in a government-run centre, and internet access was only permitted for some government-approved websites, excluding many social media sites.

#Kashmir #InternetShutdowns #KeepItOn
Access to 4G was only restored after 552 days of partial or no internet access, greatly hindering journalists’ ability to access and share information for months.
The communication shutdown resulted in severe restrictions on press freedom.

مرتند سورج مندر (اننت ناگ، سرینگر کشمیر)
Martand Sun Temple (Anantnag, Kashmir)___8th AD

Thread: Danger of free-pass to Muslim fundamentalists, by journalists.

On the day Rahul Bhat was shot dead in Kashmir (in series of Hindu killings), #WashingtonPost instead published a column- "Muslims fear the worst".

Infuriating deflection but pattern did not surprise.
After Art 370 abrog in 2019, despite no mass violence nor civilian killings, NYT published, "Inside Kashmir, a living hell" + Melodrama column by Arundhati Roy.

Deliberate discourse served to global audience by ignoring ground reality of Jihadism & Pak-funded radicalisation.
Recently, some "ground reports" on Kashmiri Pandits exposed govt failure & bureaucracy incompetence. Fair pt.

But smartly edited-out real details: Who is killing & to send wht msg? Who does a fleeing minority fear around them?

Understand between their quotes, don't just pen it.

Kashmir King who killed Sri Lanka King in 7th century BCE
Mihirakula, son of Vasukula ruled Kashmir between 704-634 BCE and belonged to Gonanda Dynasty.
Indian historians have wrongly identified him as Huna (Mongol) king and son of Toramana.
Infact, Toramana was twin brother of Hiranya, who ruled Kashmir between 16 BCE – 14 CE. Both brothers ruled alternate years before Hiranya got Toramana arrested. Toramana’s son was Pravarasena-II, who ruled between 19-79 CE.
Mihirakula was only son of Vasukula and he developed a passion for war, physical training since childhood.
Vasukula understood intentions of his son, kept himself under house arrest for 10 days and starved to death. During these 10 days, Mihirakula slowly took over the
