The assassinations of #MirwaizFarooq & #AbdulGhaniLone that reveals the ugly face of #Pakistan’s proxy war in #Kashmir. A #Thread

Pakistan is a festered wound in the lives of #Kashmiris that has been eating away the soul of Kashmir for decades now.
Some sane leaders in #Kashmir who saw through the devilish design of #Pakistan & tried to save its people from this snake in the grass were either sidelined or worse killed in cold blood.
This includes the two most influential leaders of Kashmir #MirwaizFarooq & #AbdulGhaniLone.
What happened with them?
At 7:15 p.m. on 13 Feb 1990, #terrorists shot Lassa Kaul, 45, director of the government-run #television station as he stepped from a vehicle in front of his home.
It shook Mirwaiz Farooq, Lassa Kaul was his dear friend.

3. He was then closely examined and discovered as a priest.

As yet there was no law against priests, and to satisfy the hypocritical professions of the government's persecutors, it was necessary to find some treason of which he was guilty.

I felt sad reading about the others but I wept reading about his life.

You see Palani belonged to a very poor family. As a teenager, he aspired to join the army and did so once he finished his twelfth standard exams.

As a Gurdaspur police vehicle rolled into Satnam Singh's house in Bhojraj village, no one knew what had transpired in Galwan. Image
They were worried as the family had not been in contact with Satnam Singh for three days.

They had heard about the tension at the border but nothing had prepared them for what the police were about to inform them.

Indebted to the very ideology of communism and not #China. Not only there in China, but one may find it in capitalist #US, #CzechRepublic, #Guinea and even in #Nepal as well, which was celebrated to be a #Hindu nation by the sanghis themselves in the quite recent past.
No one can find even a vestige of #SanghParivar when one seek for it outside India and that's the very reason why the global homosapiens could not get in to solidarity with it. Those can set aside their impression that communists can be targeted in the space of the current
tension. The 56 inch - gauged - chest will also be questioned and audaciously reprehended. The unparalleled and squeamish thing in between is all the neighbouring countries have now turned against us. It's not #Pinarayi Vijayan who visited china more than 6 times within such
