Bhutto had asked to see Mrs. Gandhi and a meeting was fixed for 6 p.m. at ‘the Retreat ‘ .. where Indira Gandhi was staying 🤔
Mrs. Gandhi and Bhutto then met for an hour in the Room alone ... while Officials waited in the adjoining room 😌
Emerging from the room after almost one hour with Mrs. Gandhi Alone in the room -Bhutto looked very pleased and said, "We have settled the matter and decided to give you some work to do before dinner."-To the Officials present in next room😉

Rest is History 😏
After that one hour meeting in room .. With Bhutto .... Indira G .. decided that the agreement would be worded in a manner that would not create difficulties of implementation for #Pakistan 🤔

So nice of Her 😎!! #End

#Pakistan should de-link #Palestine & #Kashmir, and #Israel/#India, in its foreign policy dictionary.

The foreign policy overhaul should cover this subject smartly, rationally, and with focus on maximizing #Islamabad's gains and limiting losses. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
We in #Pakistan have grown used to casually mentioning #Palestine/#Kashmir & #Israel/#India in a way that hurts our position, limits our options, and leads us to inaccurate conclusions and policy positions. It's more emotion and less logic. /2

#Palestine & #Kashmir are two different conflicts/disputes legally & politically, with separate trajectories, solutions & end results. Pal/Isr reached peace agreement & recognized each other in 1994; differ now on implementation. Kashmir is invasion/occupation/annexation./3

National Conference's demand for restoring posts of Wazir-e-Azam & Sadar-e-Riyasat in #Kashmir is untenable. #India came dangerously close to accepting pre-1953 in 1995 when PM Narasimha Rao said Congress was willing to concede "anything short of azadi".
Narasimha Rao's offer to restore Jammu & #Kashmir pre-1953 status was surreptitiously made from Burkina Faso. Nobody got the sinister implications of "anything short of azadi" except LK Advani who raised a storm. Rao had to retreat. One of the many reasons why Rao hated Advani.
PV Narasimha Rao is least remembered for the enormous damage he inflicted by sucking up to America and letting Robin Raphel, Pakistani agent in Clinton Administration, walk all over him. It was she who was running #Kashmir affairs in alliance with jihadi separatists.

I was 13 when I was whisked away while stepping out of my house to buy milk. I had a small bicycle that was run over by that olive coloured Jeep.
I was beaten up before I was taken to an interrogation center where I met boys as old as16 year and 45 year old men in bad shape.
Broken fingers, rollers on their legs and bodies, few made to urinate on the electric cooking heaters, vertical suspension, pulling of nails and much more. The filthiest and scariest of all was a cell. It was a tight box where boys were literally packed. I was the youngest there.
All this happened in the camp just nearby my home. My family had no clue about my whereabouts for almost 3 days. I slept for about 5 minutes over these days amongst blood and wails. I was not beaten on the 3rd day as one boy had given up his battle with life.

Mainstream political leaders of all hue and colour are immediately elevated to near-sainthood upon their deaths. But it is important that we look at their public lives critically and truthfully. Anecdotes of tea chats, descriptions of demure wardrobe choices aren't that.

#ThanthirMohalla of #GurwethKalan village is known as copper village of #Kashmir. It is situated roughly 30 kilometers away from the #Budgam’s main town. Every residence of the village has one workshop for molding, & making Copper utensils. 1/n @HappaNarinder @Iftikhar_Misgar
In 1980, #copperwork was introduced in the #GurwethVillage by 2 locals #GhulamKadirAhangar & #AbdulRahman. Even after 40 years, nothing has changed in the village. In every workshop, sits 3-4 workers, side by side, to work on the different parts of a single copper utensil. 2/n
#NisarAhmed, the president of #AllKashmirCopperDealersAssociation, mentioned 50-60% increase in demand of copper utensils, while stating that the number of craftsmen is declining. There is need to keep alive the art of Kashmir. 3/n @parawahid @syedKashaf95 @khanumarfa @shahfaesal

The real face of our system. The system used everyone for their own gains & treated equally either it is a family of martyr or a militant. People always ask why #Kashmiri always demand for #Azadi & what it means to them. We the ppl of Kashmir want #Azadi from such hypocrisy.
In Jan 13, #LanceNaikHemraj was killed & beheaded on LoC in Poonch of #Kashmir, promised was made for allotting a petrol pump, setting up a memorial & school in in Mathura but after 6 yrs after the incident family feels betrayed as the promises not fulfilled. @BJP4India
In January 19, #Hemraj’s wife was served a notice to vacate her accommodation in #MathuraCantt. After a media outcry, the notice was kept in abeyance. Hemraj family builted a memorial on their own. But govt could not even get a boundary wall constructed. 2/n @adgpi @dreamgirlhema

Let’s understand #Kashmir
The Partition of the Indian sub continent along religious lines led to the formation of India & Pakistan to fulfil Nehrus own Personal ambition to become 1st the PM of India.
Pic : 15th Aug 1947 1/N
Kashmir was never a Muslim dominated state. In the 1st millennium, Kashmir religion became an important centre of Hinduism & then Buddhism. Islamization in Kashmir took place in 13th to 15th century & led to decline of Kashmir Shaivism.

In 1339,Shah Mir became the 1st Muslim ruler empire followed by Afghan Durani. In 1819 the brave Sikhs under Ranjit Singh fought to Anglo-Sikh war forcing the britisher to intermediate. Under the treaty of Amritsar the Raja of Jammu Gulab Singh became the new ruler of Kashmir.3/N

No, the war between India & Pakistan has not started yet. There is however tensions along the LOC & few soldiers/civilians r reportedly injured with no casualties. Plz stop paying attention to fake news being spread on social media. #Sialkot #IndiaStrikesPakistan #UnitedWeStrike
Karachi airports and other airports of Pakistan are functioning as usual with no flights being cancelled. And Pakistan army HAS NOT taken control of the motorway between Lahore and Islamabad. This is all fake news.

War mongers/attention seekers /fake twitter journalists on both sides of the borders are unnecessarily spreading fake news/rumors to gather few likes/retweets at the cost of spreading panic and adding fuel to fire.

The first Airstrike by US against "terrorists" in Afghanistan after 9/11 began on 7 Oct 2001. Nearly 2 decades later, US is now talking to "Taliban" for a "deal". This is how effective airstrikes are against "terrorists". 1/n
WRT India's airstrike on "terrorist camps" in Pakistan, how degrading would that be to the terror networks in reality? Very little. You can't destroy much that cannot be replaced quickly. Would that work as a deterrent? No. 2/n
India's airstrike against terrorist camps in Pakistan is more for optics and electoral posturing by Modi-Doval & company. Like the last "surgical Strike" could not prevent more terror attacks on India, neither would this. 3/n

#Kashmir 20 வருடங்களுக்கு மேலாக காஷ்மீரில் பிரிவினைவாதிகளுக்கும், பாதுகாப்புப் படையினருக்கும் இடையே போர் நடந்து வருகிறது. பல்லாயிரக்கணக்கான மக்கள் கொல்லப்பட்டிருக்கிறார்கள். ராணுவ தரப்பிலும் உயிரிழப்புகள் ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது. .
ஏராளமான பெண்கள் பாலியல் துன்புறுத்தலுக்கு உள்ளாகி இருக்கிறார்கள். சந்தேகத்தின் பெயரில் கைது செய்யப்பட்ட கணவன் பல ஆண்டுகள் கடந்தும், வீடு திரும்பாததால் ஏதோ பித்து பிடித்த நிலையில் குழந்தைகளை வளர்க்கும் பெண்கள் காஷ்மீரில் உள்ளனர்.
கிட்டதட்ட 5 லட்சம் ராணுவ வீரர்கள் காஷ்மீர் பள்ளத்தாக்கு பகுதியில் குவிக்கப்பட்டிருக்கிறார்கள். உலகில் அதிகளவில் ராணுவ வீரர்கள் சூழப்பட்ட பகுதி காஷ்மீர் என்றும் கூறப்படுகிறது.

So #Facebook & #Instagram (second time in 3 weeks) deleted my accounts. For sharing information about #Kashmir. No explanations or replies to my questions are given. Of course this is not about Facebook, nor about me, but the much more dangerous path SM is taking.
It is all about Justice & about what is happening to many people living under oppression & facing severe surveillance & suppression on the ground and even online.
It is about principals & rights. Human rights. Enshrined in statues & bragged about. Said to be universal. Said to be
I don't know ONE Kashmiri who hasn't been subjected to some form of censorship. On the ground there are far worse consequences than removed posts. Journalists (and MANY civilians) have been trashed, arrested & targeted when covering human rights violations by India.
