This thread deals with the devious & dubious role of former PM of J&K, Mr Ramchandra Kak during those tumultous years of 1940s, when J&K was at the crossroads of its future engagements & the big picture that was emerging in #India

#Jammu #Himachal #Kashmir #Accession #Dogra
As u all r aware that #JammuKashmir had 2 major parties viz National Conference headed by #SheikhAbdullah & Muslim Conference by #YusufShah.
RC Kak was the person who exploited the differences b/w them for the "God Knows what" benefit

#Kashmir #Jammu #Himachal
The major reason of rift among these larties was the #Lahore Declaration by #Muslim League in 1940. NC was secular by nature and had good equations with #Nehru and #Congress, while MC was communal & was completely in favour of acceeding with #Pakistan

To all those who say #Kashmir is joyous about "becoming Indian": after #burhanwani was killed, I spent some months in the valley. #Kashmiris were frustrated by India's militarisation, angry at oppression. #Thread - everything I saw illustrates Kashmiris wanted distance from India
Villagers of Chadoora, Budgam claimed security forces shot at and killed three teenage boys in their village. About 150 armed personnel had assembled to cordon off a house where a militant was lodged.
Such "encounters" are common in the valley.

A little beyond the encounter site in Chadoora, on the other side of the apple orchards, is a narrow canal. Some boys stood on the opposite bank of the canal and hooted at the soldiers, witnesses said.

@sanjaytickoo @ReclaimTemples @SaveTemplesBH @LostTemple7 @JammuKashmirNow @TheIndianTemple @SulagnaDash6 @gollakmahapatra @AhmAsmiYodha @Ind4Ever @Amisri4 #Kashmir is land of Kashyap Rishi, 1 of 7rishis mentioned in Rigveda. Anantnag is land of Shesha Naga, king of Nagas. Srinagar was called as Surya (Sun) Nagar. Baramulla named on Baraha Abatar of Vishnu. Kashmir was a Hindu Land. Just 100 years of Radical Islam destroyed all.

I have just boarded the flight to #Srinagar. The only way I could find to reach my parents. I haven't been able to contact them since past 4 days. This is the story of every #Kashmiri living away from the valley --a valley writhing under the weight of brute force #Kashmir
Once I reach there, I'll be incommunicado. No phones, no internet, not even landlines. This air journey feels like one down an abyss. I'll give an update when it's possible to. I don't have the faintest idea when that will be possible. I am surrounded by numb Kashmiris #Kashmir
There is so little I know about my people there. Yet I know so much. My mother's eyes would be red by now -- from hours of crying and lack of sleep. My father would be weaker than before. They'll hug me and cry, I know, even when I don't know how I'll reach home. #Kashmir

#JhelumFables , a 5 day visual storytelling workshop which I am conducting with youth in #Kashmir kicked off today. There couldn't have been a better classroom than the picturesque houseboat ROOTS situated on river Jhelum.

P.S: The best way to spend holidays in company of ✏️📸
#JHELUMFABLES
On day two of the visual storytelling workshop I interacted with each participant. We did small excercises to enhance imagination. Later they chose quaint corners of Roots houseboat situated on river #Jhelum & scribbled stories in company of wood & water. #Kashmir
Light experiments inside classroom on day 3 of #JhelumFables
A chair placed on the wooden Verandah of the houseboat facing west became a prop for portrait shooting- as participants tried side lighting & back lighting before venturing out on the river banks with their camera & pen

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.

I will share with you a series of stories related to life in #Kashmir. They are #BelieveItOrNot stories.

STORY 1- A few week ago many people shared the picture of this #Shiv temple in #Gulmarg. This temple has been an attraction primarily in the summer months. 1/n
It is on top of a hill inside the #Gulmarg bowl. The hill used to be covered with flowers on all sides as was most of Gulmarg and has the best view.

The temple also has some accommodation opposite to it which was used by the priest and sometimes rented as well by travellers. 2/n
This temple in #Gulmarg also had some accommodation opposite to it which was used by the priest & sometimes rented as well by travellers. Close to 3 decades back during the summer months, there used to be "havan" at the temple & they made the best halwa one could have. 3/n
