The "Integrated country strategy" with #SriLanka will likely be our template for #BharatVarsh as a union of #Indic civilization.
Interesting to note that instead of imposing ourselves we've let the #SriLanka govt outline the details of the integration process on their terms.
A detailed description of what they're looking at below . In essence seems to be much like a federation of union of states .Better for the people of both nations .
Russia went straight to Dand .
We try to stay between Saam & Daam use Bhedh if necessary as a measure of Dand .

#Somaliland and #Taiwan: The benefits


1/14. S/land and Taiwan have a lot in common such as both being a fully functioning democracies with volatile neighbours. Both are striving for international recognition and will not budge to threats or diplomatic pressure. Image
2/14. Somaliland brings a lot to the table. S/land’s strategic location in the Horn of Africa will give Taiwan a gateway into East Africa and beyond. Landlocked countries in Africa can benefit from this diplomatic move such as Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda.
3/14. S/land will give Taiwan an important access to the Gulf of Berbera (Gulf Aden) where access to the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the world can be established which will boost Taiwan’s export opportunities as well as a chance to make new friends in the region.

If you think #Travelling Is Expensive, you might just be doing it wrong

This is how I booked my #Maldives Package for Rs. 28k ( $375 ) per person ( 3 pax )

A Thread ( 1/n )
While for most people extravaganza is a symbol of luxury, for me Maldives has been abt different shades of Blue which itself is a luxury to behold
Maldives are an archipelago of 1,192 coral islands grouped into 26 coral atolls ( 154 islands tourist resorts) in the Indian Ocean
While booking an island resort, the major decisions you need to look at from cost angle is
1. Resort transfer from Male Airport ( Speed boat , Domestic flight , Sea Plane )
2. All-inclusive Package
3. Water-Villa or Beach Villa

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Throughout the history of Indo-Pak region, we had the intellectual dwarfs telling us what #Muslims should do. How dare Muslims to live under Muslim rule?

#ColonialFeminism has been in existence as long as #feminism, almost a joke now (but we have to care, to protect #Kashmir 1/n
..from this species).

Earlier, we exchanged our destiny with massacres & genocides for #Hindu rulers, or the #secularists.

The #fascist outburst in recent decades turned them as 'guardians of Muslims', framing it as '#Hindutva vs. #Secularists', imposing #Ambedkar as the.. 2/n
...solution with a holy excuse of #Dalit discourse (one more #Hindu).

But as the tide is rising, the two nation theory is back again with full force. And Insha Allah we will see many more #Islamic #republics in #Kashmir, #Maldives, #EastPakistan & elsewhere.

Free media is a vital component in ensuring freedom of expression. Maldives affirms its commitment to independent journalism and continues to advocate for fair regulation of the industry.-@ShimranAb #MaldivesUPR2020 #UPR36 #HumanRights #Maldives Image
Civil Society and Non-Profit Organisations are undoubtedly an integral part of the country’s development. Our Government, since the very first day, has recognised this important role played by civil societies, in bridging the gap between communities and policy makers.
#UPR36 Image
Maldives believes in the significance of rights being exercised responsibly, prudently, and within the stipulated legal ambits, in a manner that is respectful of the foundational values of the society.

Mini- #Thread on islands of #Lakshadweep and #Maldives as observed and recorded by Sulaiman, the Arab merchant (who undertook several voyages to India and China),in his travel diary, known as ‘Akhbar Al-Sin wa’l Hind’ dated 851 CE. #History #India #Islamic #medieval #Bharat
“The third sea is the Sea of Harkandh [from Sanskrit Harikeliya, Bay of Bengal]. Between it and the Sea of Larvi there are numerous islands. It is said that they are one thousand and nine hundred islands, and they mark the boundaries of these two seas,..
.. namely Larvi [Lata for Gujarat] and Harkandh... In these islands, ruled by the woman, coconut palms grow in abundance. The distance between one island and the other is two, three or four farsakh, and each one of these is inhabited by people and has coconut palms...

.@RahulGandhi hs questions on Foreign Policy. Here are some answers:

•Our major partn’ships are strongr & internat’l standng higher.Witness regular summits&informal meetngs wth #US #Russia #Europe & #Japan.India engages #China on more equal terms politically.

Ask the analysts.
•We speak our mind more openly now. On #CPEC, on #BRI, on South China Sea, on UN-sanctioned terrorists, etc.

Ask the media.
• And address the #border infrastructure imbalance legacy. Compare 2014-20 with 2008-14. Budget up by 280%, road building by 32%, bridges by 99% and tunnels by 6 times.

Ask our Jawans.

#SecularMVStrategy: President @ibusolih is an asset to the #SecularMaldives #FikuryInqilab as long as he continues to enable the factors and variables that make change possible. This position will change if these fundamentals change. Read @mujunaeem’s thread. (4 tweets).
If president @ibusolih’s presidency is disrupted before his term is up, the presidency goes to JP’s VP @FaisalNasym. The government then shifts further to the right from MPD’s center-right current position.
It will also throw #Maldives into political chaos, with opportunistic Islamists and capitalists waiting to roll back progress 10-15 years, an outcome that is unacceptable.

This tweet admits the reason why a number of lawmakers have supported the #AntiTerrorBill and confirms the concerns and sentiments of those who oppose it--that it is to quell dissent toward the #DuterteKakistocracy and to clamp on free speech and the freedom of the press.
To begin with, all the countries mentioned in the senate president's tweet have either undergone oppressive governments under tyrants, registered poor ratings in free speech and press freedom, committed gross violations of human rights, or even banned religious freedom.
Thailand, for instance, had been ruled by men in uniform for 55 of the 83 years from 1932 to 2009. And it was ruled by a military junta from 2014 to 2019. Its politics also has a frammework of constitutional monarch. It may also be recalled that in 2007, a military

Ever since #COVID19 began spreading in #Maldives the need of the hour has been emergency measures to control the spread & to mitigate the impact on lives & livelihoods.

Whilst State agencies have implemented many critical steps, other measures can only be imposed through law.
Here's a proposal for a #COVID19 Emergency Measures Bill that shows how such legislation might be structured ⬇️…

For those who don't want to wade through 38 pages of "legalese" (um, so, basically everyone 🙂), the (relatively) short version follows...
The proposals cover the issues of:
- shelter
- food
- rent increases
- evictions
- rent relief
- profiteering
- employment
- unemployment benefits
- mental well-being
- public utilities & internet charges
- loan relief
- State expenses
- wages of higher-earning State officials

1) BREAKING: #ISIS claims its first ever attack in the #Maldives, stating a special source told #Naba that Islamic State fighters carried out the arson attack that destroyed five boats, including a police and ambulance unit, in #Mahibadhoo town, central Maldives.
2)This claim doesn't come as a surprise. As I've discussed before, #ISIS supporters carried out a stabbing attack on foreigners in Feb., claiming through an ISIS-style video & it was only a matter of time before these supporters connected w/ ISIS directly

3)#ISIS stated the boats belonged to the "Apostate Maldivian Government and its loyalists" and were destroyed using "incendiary bombs." Most remarkable is the speed of the claim. W/ the attack having happened late Wed., the line of comm. is clearly open.…
