La décision de l'Arabie saoudite de refuser de fournir de nouvelles mesures de sauvetage ou des prêts sans intérêt à Islamabad a choqué le gouvernement pakistanais. ⤵️…
▪️ Le #Pakistan a désespérément besoin d'un apport stable de dollars pour éviter le défaut de paiement.
Au cours des 3,5 prochaines années, Islamabad devra rembourser près de 80 milliards de dollars de prêts internationaux, mais maintenant les réserves de change du pays ne sont que de 3 milliards de dollars.…

Thread: Corporate Agricultural Farming – Need of Hour

#Pakistan continues to face serious concerns about food insecurity despite being an agri-based society.
Even Pakistan's national security policy has emphasized food security as an imp aspect of non-traditional security.
Ample availability of water, a suitable climate, arable land, employment of innovative technologies, and availability of power supplies are crucial elements of food security.
Water insufficiency, urbanization, lack of investment, and rising production costs pose a challenge to national food security. Studies have shown that Pak could experience water scarcity by 2025 & become the most water-stressed country in South Asia by 2040.

To know why #Pakistan is rapidly inching towards yet another civil war, it's important to first understand its beginnings...

#Pakistan faces a triple crisis: political, economic, and security. Despite great potential, it is underperforming and falling far behind its archrival, India. It is time for serious soul-searching, bold thinking, and strategizing. Here are my thoughts:
The sequential cannibalizing of its leaders through jailing, execution, assassination, etc. is the wrong path. Arresting Imran Khan will only deepen the crisis. I urge 2 steps: 1. Set a date for national elections in early June to avert a meltdown.
2. Use this time for the main political parties to confont what has gone wrong and propose a specific plan to rescue and put the country on a path to stability, security, and prosperity. Whichever party wins the election will have a mandate from the people on what must be done.

IN MAY 1950, PAKISTAN’S law minister, Jogendar Nath #Mandal, confidentially told an Indian reporter that most Hindus in the new country’s eastern wing felt they had no place in #Pakistan and were determined to leave. “I have asked them to wait for a few weeks more and (1/16) Image

Thread: Division of Assests during 1947 Partition of Indian Subcontinent

The independence of #Pakistan didn't come easy; it came with enormous issues & hurdles, having no parallel in history. The biggest issue/injustice faced by Pakistan was the unjust division of assets.
The civil and military officials were left with a difficult task when Mountbatten decided on 3 June 1947 that Pakistan and India would be divided into two portions.
The division of assets at the time of the Partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947 was a complex and contentious process. The partition involved the creation of two new independent countries: #India and #Pakistan.

The Pakistani Intelligence Community has said that its unbinding assessment to the Election Commission of #Pakistan is that the security situation at this point in time, especially with regards to unconventional and insurgent threats, is not conducive for holding provincial
elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces. This is a consequence of the ongoing multi-front battle the Pakistani Joint Security Forces are fighting against a number of armed terrorist groups that aim to destabilise Pakistani society through fatal violence against
Pakistani civilians, soldiers and infrastructure.

The current security outlooks, risk assessments and the latest intelligence indicates a non-coverable threat to the lives of civilian during polling activities.

I’ve just returned from NE #Syria, where I visited the U.S. military’s RLZ base in Rumeilan, the al-Roj & al-Hol camps, as well as Ghuweiran Prison – all alongside @CENTCOM Commander Kurilla.

An incredibly insightful trip, with a lot of takeaways. ImageImage
After arriving on a C-17 at RLZ -- the beating heart of the #Syria-based mission – I saw how U.S. troops operated multiple drone flights, collected & assessed ISR, monitored air traffic for hostile threats, and coordinated D-#ISIS operations across the northeast. Image
From Rmeilan, Arabic-speaking U.S. troops & civil-military teams are working closely with the #SDF, Asayish, tribal councils in #Iraq & #Syria and the Iraqi government to facilitate the return of 600+ Iraqis from prisons and camps every 4-6 weeks -- an absolutely vital effort.

Ahead of China, Vietnam, #Bangladesh, and #India - #Pakistan had been one of the top performers growing 6% per annum from 1947- 1990 economically. 1991 onwards, weak governance and short-term stability led #Pakistan’s economy to “Boom and Bust”.
[1] ImageImage
Bhutto’s bureaucratic reforms led to the destruction of governance, weak civil institutions, and the promotion of mega-corruption during institutional atrophy.
During that period, analysts argued that country’s poor performance is due to Garrison state syndrome (military domination), on the contrary, Pak’s economic performance during military rule had been better. Defense expenditure ratio to GDP was higher in the first 40 years.

The Bucher Papers - A 🧵

#India has long been accused of attempting to stop the declassification of documents from 1947 pertaining to #Kashmir out of concern that the "sensitive" letters might have an impact on international relations.

The letters, also known as the Bucher papers, are thought to include political and military grounds for Jawaharlal Nehru, #India's first prime minister, to request a cease-fire with #Pakistan and grant the state of Jammu & Kashmir special status.

For the current nationalist government in Delhi, which has derided Nehru's decision to reach a compromise on status of disputed Kashmir as an ignorant "blunder," the correspondence from the then-commander-in-chief, Gen. Roy Bucher, will have major political implications.

#Pakistan faced one of the biggest refugee crises in the world after independence in 1947. Estimates range that more than 10 million people were displaced after Partition. Fatima Jinnah set up a Women’s Relief Committee (WRF) that catered to refugees coming into Pak.#WomenDay2023
Two years later, in 1949, the committee evolved into the All Pakistan Women’s Association (APWA) under Begum Ra’ana Liaquat Ali Khan as its founder.
APWA’s focus was on women’s social welfare, including girls’ education, health, and income generation opportunities. Being an apolitical org, APWA worked with civilian and military governments to achieve its goals, such as building schools, colleges & health facilities for women.

While jihadis roam around freely in the Banana Republic of Pakistan, the state authorities prefer to attack a women's rally.
Frankly, I don't really approve of the whole message of intersectional feminists. I think some of it is really stupid and misguided. So I mostly ignore them.

If you don't like something, ignore it. But don't resort to bans and crackdowns. You're displaying your own weakness.
Islamabad Police apologizes for the behavior of some policemen with the participants of women's rally. #Pakistan
