Thread | #BappaRawal, the first Hindu king from the Guhila (Gahlot) clan of Rajputs who defeated Bin Qasim, the Ⲓ⳽ⳑⲇⲙⲓⲥ Invaders and expanded India’s boundary from Sindh till Iran.
▪️ One can understand his greatness by the fact that he restricted Ⲓ⳽ⳑⲇⲙⲓⲥ Invaders upto 63 years of his rule. infact, not many are aware that the city of Rawalpindi, Pakistan is named after him.
▪️ He was so brave that his enemies used to tremble with fear on hearing his name. Bappa Rawal was the only Hindu ruler who defeated the Ⲓ⳽ⳑⲇⲙⲓⲥ Invaders.

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

The first Airstrike by US against "terrorists" in Afghanistan after 9/11 began on 7 Oct 2001. Nearly 2 decades later, US is now talking to "Taliban" for a "deal". This is how effective airstrikes are against "terrorists". 1/n
WRT India's airstrike on "terrorist camps" in Pakistan, how degrading would that be to the terror networks in reality? Very little. You can't destroy much that cannot be replaced quickly. Would that work as a deterrent? No. 2/n
India's airstrike against terrorist camps in Pakistan is more for optics and electoral posturing by Modi-Doval & company. Like the last "surgical Strike" could not prevent more terror attacks on India, neither would this. 3/n
