I disagree with a lot of things this govt does but standing out for kashmir has a greater impact than we think. Twitter hashtags can change the way people around the world see things.


Arab spring, US elections and almost everything in today's world is affected by twitter hash tags and FB posts. So today for 5 odd minutes more than a million people tweeted on Kashmir, that opened it up for many people across the globe.

Hence rather than bickering about it for hours, your 5 mins on expressing solidarity with 8 million people of Kashmir who are caged by 800K barbarians were indeed a good use!

#KashmirHour - a thread from History

As the clock strikes 12 noon, Pakistan will “show solidarity” to Kashmiris, most of whom don’t have access to Web/TV to “see” it, and have little benefit from our domestic shows. This reminds me of one particular event from 1971. 1/n
On 30th Jan 1971, 2 Kashmiris hijacked an Indian Airline Passenger plane, named Ganga, from Srinagar, and landed it at Lahore. This was a tense time, post-1970 Elections. Z. A. Bhutto, with West Pakistan’s mandate and being extremely popular was called to deal with it. 2/n
While going for negotiations, a mob, charged by their patriotism, surrounded Bhutto at the Lahore Airport and demanded that the Hijackers be declared Heroes, since their Act has highlighted #Kashmir and was great insult on India. Arresting Hijackers became impossible. 3/n
