In analysing the history of #Afghanistan, scholars and historians often assessed the independence and autonomy of a given region based on their ability to resist an imposition of tax. Paying levies was therefore the way power-relations and supremacy was understood. 5/N.K.
In this sense, the #Hazarajat as a whole was what scholars often deemed as a “semi-independent” region. By 1891, aside from #Uruzgan, every other region (14 districts) of the #Hazarajat paid taxes to Abdur Rahman Khan. 6/N.K.
Most regions throughout the #Hazarajat were headed by ‘mirs’ or ‘khans’ and a system of feudalism operated throughout this sphere. 7/N.K.

Thread:

A classic case of how influence operatives such as Mohsin Dawar are allowed to gain a voice in #Pakistan.

How our media regulators such as @reportpemra & @pid_gov’s weak vetting processes allow such elements to gain a public voice.

I present to you Veengas Yasmeen:

/1
She’s been peddling seditious propaganda for a long time, with sinister links to #Indian media establishment, recently she was laying low to begin a Sindhi/English News Service

Now, her ‘NONPROFIT’ network is being built to recruit local journalists (operatives) in #Pakistan
/2
Her timeline was cleared of many tweets, when she applied for a news outlet license.
However there are ways to find those posts.
How much more obvious do you have to be in your anti-#Pakistan propaganda for the media regulators to take notice?

End Game for separatism! Possibility predictions
1) If India changes status quo in #Kashmir, confused #PakistanArmy wud assort to adventurism! It may giv diplomatic approval for Kashmir as new country!
2) To disapprove Indian move, #Pakistan would launch military campaign to express solidarity with #Kashmiri Awaam n their Azadi feelings.
In that case Indian leadership wud employ Never-Seen-Before military power to stun #GHQ n #ISI combo and geographical changes possible in Pak
3) If Pakistan opens military front in Kashmir against India to protest change of constitutional Status Quo in Kashmir, Indian wud deal disproportionate air/ land punch of its choice anywhere on Western border triggering Pakistan's disintegration from within in no time.

پاکستان خطے میں پشتون حقوق کا علمبردار ہے۔ پاکستان کو 15 سالوں سے افغانستان کی حکومت میں حصہ دینے کی بات کرنے پر سزا دی گئی۔ پشتون تشخص پاکستانی طاقت اور ریاست کا حصہ ہے اور پاکستان پشتون قوم کا حامی ہے، دوسروں نے استعمال کیا ہے۔ دیکھئے احمد قریشی کیا کہا۔
#PTM #MohsinDawar
پشتون قوم کو سیاست اور جنگ میں استعمال روس بھارت ایران اور امریکہ نے کیا۔ پاکستان نے پشتون قوم کی سیاسی wعسکری حمایت کی ۔ یہ پاکستان ہے جس نے پشتون قوم اور افغانستان میں افغان قوم کے حقوق کو زندہ رکھنے میں مدد کی ورنہ دنیا مٹانے پر تلی ہوئی تھی۔
#PTM #PashtunRejectStateTerrorism
پاکستان میں کوئی پشتون حقوق کا مسئلہ نہیں صرف بیانیہ کا مسئلہ ہے جس میں ریاست کمزور ہے۔ پاکستانی ریاست میں بیانیہ کا بحران ہے۔ اتنا بڑا بحران ہے کہ اس کے حل کیلئے بھی فوج کے ترجمان کو میدان میں آنے پڑا، تب جاکر ریاست کا بیانیہ اپنے پیر پر کھڑا ہوا۔

'#Baloch terrorist organizations' is a misnomer and a dangerous term that should not be used in official and media lexicon in #Pakistan. It risks creating permanent fissures in #Pakistani society. /1

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
In its letter to #Iran embassy on anti-#Pakistan terrorism emanating from #Iranian soil, #Pakistani MFA referred to '#Baloch terror organizations' twice. MFA is not alone in doing this. Variations like 'Baloch terrorists' are common in our public discourse. /2
@AQpk
The term '#Baloch terror organizations' & its variations risks making a permanent association between '#Baloch' & '#terror', & the link must be disturbing for the ears of #Pakistani Baloch & insensitive to their feelings. /3

#Thread | PM #ImranKhan did the right thing by owning #PTM. This one move destroys the designs of regional actors hoping to exploit legitimate grievances of a segment of #Pakistanis. Here's why it's good. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
Misguided or not, #PTM consists of young & educated #Pakistanis. The grievances are real, result of decades of political failures of #Peshawar & #Islamabad, and parties like #ANP #PPP #PMLN. /2
@AQpk
#Pakistani politicians failed to build on successful anti-terror military operations in #FATA. #PakMilitry had to enlist help of #UAE #EU #Japan #KSA to build schools & roads. Precious time was wasted in political squabbles. /3
