ট্রেন বন্ধ করার ভুল সিদ্ধান্তের জন্যেই এবার করোনা ছড়াবে।
কারণ সম্পূর্ন লকডাউন তো হয়নি.. রুজি রুটির টানে মানুষকে তো বেরোতেই হবে।

🟧Alors que tous les regards sont portés vers l'Inde et ses chiffres #Covid assez impressionnants, de nombreux pays qui lui sont frontaliers connaissent aussi une très forte hausse de leur cas de #COVID19.

➡️Voyons la situation des pays concernés proches de l'#Inde :

#India
➡️🇳🇵Le #Nepal subit actuellement une très forte hausse de son nombre de cas de #Covid_19 ! En 7 jours, la moyenne journalière est passée de 1174 à 3273 cas par jours !

Soit une hausse de +178%😯

Le taux de positivité a lui aussi fortement augmenter, atteignant 26% le 25/04 !
⤵️
➡️🇵🇰Le #Pakistan, lui aussi a vu sa courbe de cas #COVID19 augmenter très rapidement !

🧐En revanche, il semblerait que la courbe tende à la baisse après avoir atteint un maximum de 5573 cas journalier en moyenne !

La positivité a quand à elle augmentée pour atteindre 10,6%

The situation in #Pakistan. A quick update.

PM #ImranKhan's government is shaken by inflation and shortages, some out of its control but compounded by poor planning & governance. Here, long queues can be seen in some cities for govt-rationed sugar & flour in #Ramadan.
#Pakistan is currently divided between urgent issues and sideshows. Government is finally expediting vaccinations; the professionals at @OfficialNcoc are at it. But Govt also continues to push PM #ImranKhan's agenda against #France, #West on #Islamophobia.
One of the biggest sideshows in #Pakistan today is the explosive interview of a former spy chief who has blown the lid off alleged abuse of spy services by PM #ImranKhan to target his political opponents. Check this trend: #BashirMemonLeaks.

1/ Important #COVID19 vaxxine data thread. I have avoided tweeting about the vax issue as it’s become an immensely toxic topic. But there are some extremely worrying trends emerging between CV19 cases, deaths, & vaxxine administration.
#cdnpoli #onpoli #Canada #science #data
2/ Here, I will share publicly available data for #COVID19 vaxxinations, cases, & deaths in 17 countries + #Ontario & ask questions, as per the scientific method. You are free to make up your own mind regarding the trends shown.
#cdnpoli #onpoli #Canada #science #data
3/ #Israel was the one of the first countries to start CV19 vaxxinations (19-Dec-2020). Since vaxxinations began, both CV19 cases & deaths continued to increase for ~5 weeks. It took 3 months for cases+deaths return to pre-vax levels.

The #ArmenianGenocide 🇦🇲 is a well documented historical fact for 🇪🇺European (including Russia) countries and for the 🇺🇸US. Biden's public position on this issue does not change the whole picture. Though, it might gain him a few extra-supports.
theguardian.com/us-news/2021/a…
Biden's position on the #ArmenianGenocide🇦🇲 should probably be seen as an American retaliation for the numerous displeasures 🇺🇸USA have with Erdogan. It is also an acknowledgement that #Turkey 🇹🇷 is not an important and trustable member of #Nato anymore.

🇵🇰#ImranKhanPTI wish to interfere in this bilateral quarrel is of no consequence on The #ArmenianGenocide 🇦🇲international recognition. It, however, evidences a humiliating puppet, if not pet, status for #Pakistan under Khan's rule.

1/ The help from #Pakistan to #India regarding COVID might be directed by 2 intentions.
1. Providing humanitarian relief is a way to assert international position, to show being stronger than the helped party, and to flatter national pride.
#indiacovid
tribune.com.pk/story/2296498/…
2. Helping a so close neighbor to contain this disaster could also aim to protect the country from contamination and other consequences from the resulting instability it creates.
However, this action could also backfire.

When Pakistan will be hit by the Indian COVID wave, Imran Khan's government will be challenged for having diverted strategic resources which will be missing.

It’s alive and well. You just haven’t noticed. Feminists across the world are fighting battles you’ve never seen in the West.

They’re imprisoned in #Iran for removing their hijab. They’re imprisoned in #SaudiArabia for driving or pushing for the abolition of laws against women.
They’re fighting for laws that protect women and value their lives in #Kuwait, where men who ‘honor kill’ their sisters and wives get a perfunctory three years in prison.
They’re in the streets of #Pakistan literally risking their lives to say ‘stop raping us’.

The debate contained within these tweets is a critical one: the question of to what extent the #Taliban will try to seize Kabul by force—as opposed to using force in support of a political track—is one I see many people grappling with here. 1/n
My view is that the #Taliban will press the mil front in 2022 but in a calibrated way—ie, they won’t “empty the madrassas” in a Tet style offensive, but will likely cont surrounding & pressuring provincial capitals. If the opportunity presents to seize 1/more, they’ll take it 2/n
But they know they can’t win militarily so long as the AAF/Commandos are in tact & the #ANDSF doesn’t fracture—neither of which are likely to happen so long as US security assistance $$ continues at scale. I assess it will until at least 2024. 3/n

“We Muslims need a major renewal in religion by accepting the full meaning of the Qur’anic maxim, ‘There is no compulsion in religion.’

So no more religious policing, no threats to ‘apostates’ or ‘blasphemers’.”

Interview with me by Pakistan’s @GVS_News:
globalvillagespace.com/exclusive-must…
I also said:

#Pakistan had the right approach to religion at its birth as the great Ali Jinnah put it:

“You are free. You are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship; that has nothing to do with the business of the State.”
I also said:

“Some of the #Orientalist critiques of the Islamic world have been indeed prejudiced and crude, but the defensive reaction to this problem has turned into another mistake, as it avoids the healthy self-criticism we Muslims need today.”

Just days earlier, #Afghanistan Pres. @ashrafghani said it was time for #Pakistan to decide on afghan policy & that Afghanistan's stability was also Pakistan's stability. TTP is believed by many in Pakistan to be sponsored partially by the Afghan state.
In addition to this, TTP is known for deep, genuine ties with fellow Mujahideen, Afghan Taliban, via whom #Pakistan's Afghan diplomatic leverage largely lies. Islamist groups have also used Pashtun nationalism to gain support.
TLP's Punjabi Barelvi rioting has the potential to jeopardize #Pakistan state & PTI's influence in KP. Many analysts quietly agreed that Deobandi-Barelvi "civil wars" were looming. While Saad Rizvi was imprisoned, Fazl-ur-Rehman took initiative & backed TLP on blasphemy issue.

#Pakistan FM seeks #Iran's support for PM #ImranKhan's agenda on #Islamophobia & #France, amid signs no #Muslim country so far supports this agenda.

In his public statement, Iran FM #Zarif has politely indulged Pak FM on this issue but without a clear commitment to this agenda.
#Pakistan Foreign Minister @SMQureshiPTI in #Tehran called on #Iran to support PM #ImranKhan's agenda on #Islamophobia & #France. He also invited #Turkey & #KSA to join in.

Seems difficult. Iran enjoys good ties w/ France. And so does Pres #Erdogan now.

FM @SMQureshiPTI in #Tehran said he will seek #Turkey Pres #Erdogan's support for PM @ImranKhanPTI's anti-#France agenda.

He might get little support beyond lip service. Presidents @RTErdogan+@EmmanuelMacron recently had recently had a good meeting:

Prayers for the 53 men crew of the missing Indonesian navy submarine.

We in #Pakistan still remember the solidarity #Indonesia showed us during the 1965 war.

Below is a thread with few extracts from the book "The First Round" by the late Air Marshal Muhammad Asghar Khan. (1/7)
On 10 September during the war, Air Marshal Asghar Khan arrived in Jakarta to seek help in Pakistan’s ‘dire’ need to which Indonesian President Suekarno replied: "Your dire need? It is our dire need. India has attacked Indonesia" (2/7)
AM Asghar Khan writes "Pakistan will remember that when we were in ‘dire’ need, Indonesia gave Pakistan the key to their arsenal. . . . . . I have often wondered if Pakistan will ever be able to repay this debt". (3/7)

'#Taliban as proxies in #Pakistan's endless war' is a cliché from the 2000s. It's outdated. Time to take stock of new realities in Pakistani military thinking because the #US #NATO & #Pakistan must prevent a new civil war in #Afghanistan. /1

No one can win in #Afghanistan. Not even the #Taliban. Some actors would love to see a permanent Afghan war of attrition that engulfs #America+#Pakistan+#Afghanistan. Make no mistake: a new #Islamabad+#WashingtonDC blame game will expedite such a war. /2

What's happening in #Afghanistan is by no means #Pakistan's proxy war. But it is the proxy war of multiple actors who want Afghanistan to be a permanent bleeding ground for #America #Pakistan #NATO. /3

#Pakistan's PM Imran Khan once again calls for the West to criminalise blasphemy against Islam.

They say "Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results"

Some more of my impromptu thoughts.

aljazeera.com/news/2021/4/19…
PM Khan's speech may be partly to placate the domestic troubles instigated by TLP & potential extremist coalitions, but that doesn't mean his dedication to fighting blasphemy isn't genuine. It is a long running endeavour of his & one that has helped sow disruptive seeds.
The PM outlined the importance of concerted political efforts between Muslim countries to help outlaw blasphemy in Europe, even calling for sanctions against states that promote/allow blasphemy. This won't just harm Pakistan's relations with the West- also with Muslim countries.

Eight Police officers and special rangers were held hostage on April 18 by supporters of a racial Islamist party in Pakistan, said the officials after days of violent anti-France Protests.
The country has been witnessing rioting since the last week as the leader of now-banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) was detained in Lahore after calling for the expulsion of the French ambassador.
The protests have paralysed cities and led to the deaths of six policemen, prompting the French embassy to recommend all its nationals temporarily leave the country.

The #IRGC loses a seasoned commander, reports #Iran media. It lost #Soleimani in 2020.
The #IRGC has commanders with impressive experiences: #Soleimani was involved in the #Gulf/#Iraq. #EsmailQaani is touted for his expertise on #Afghanistan+#Pakistan. Hejazi, who died today, was a #Lebanon expert.

☠ Hejazi was also responsible for #IRGC's precision missile program, and oversaw ops in #Syria. In this #thread, contributors in replies suggest possible foul play, and point out confusion over the wording of the cause of death in official announcements.

El 16 de abril de 1995 se conmemora el #DíaMundialContralaEsclavitudInfantil en memoria de #IqbalMasih, un niño pakistaní que vivió en condiciones de #esclavitud.🧒🏽🇵🇰

¿Qué hay detrás de este día? Abrimos 🧵👇🏻 Image
La OIT estima que actualmente, alrededor de 152 millones de menores entre 5 y 17 años trabajan bajo condiciones de #explotación y #abuso. 👧🏽🧒🏼

Malí, Benín y Somalia son los países con las tasas nacionales más altas de #trabajoinfantil. 🌍 Image
#IqbalMasih fue un niño que vivió bajo estas condiciones. A los 4 años fue entregado por su padre a un fabricante de #alfombras para cubrir una deuda.💰

A partir de ello, Iqbal fue obligado a realizar jornadas de más de 12 horas, estando encadenado y recibiendo abusos. 👊🏽 Image

***The summary below is not official and may therefore contain errors and inaccuracies!!!***

Huzoor began the sermon by reciting verses from the Holy #Quran which relate to the month of #Ramadan and the act of fasting, and he then....
... presented their #Urdu translation.

Huzoor said that merely being alive during this holy month, or merely going through it, or merely doing only Suhoor and Iftaar, are not enough, and neither are these the purposes of #Ramadan. Its significance, in terms of spirituality,...
... runs much deeper than that. Good and righteous deeds, especially prayers, are most accepted by Allah in this month, and Huzoor also cited a verse of the Holy #Quran which mentions of Allah being near His servants and Him hearing our prayers.

Huzoor then presented passages...
