#Shivaji plundered and looted Jalna, and didn't spare the hermitage of Sayyid Jan Muhammad Sufi.

Whether he died of curses of the Sufi, or by poisoning as a result of the power politics among his many wives, is a question though.

Imran Khan seems to not know that Qazi Faiz Isa brazenly lies about his father and grandfather, and exaggerate their role to project them as some sort of great, principled people. They were not!

There's well-documented evidence which prove Qazi Isa was corrupt, and offered his services to the military dictator.

For now, I am sharing one such evidence, penned by no one else but Qaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah himself. Qazi Isa collected donations for Anjuman-i-Islamia Baluchistan to establish a school but then he would not hand over the donations to the Anjuman. It was only when Jinnah himself intervened in the matter, and asked Qazi Isa to hand over the amount. He reluctantly did that but claimed expenses and lesser amount in donations than what the Anjuman demanded.Image
In this scripted and choreographed to-the-minute interview, Qazi Faez Isa claims that his father and Jinnah not only had the relation of a leader-follower, Pir-o-Murshid, but that there was more to their relationship, and they were very close because, acc. to Faez Isa, Jinnah wrote his father TWO letters in which he addressed his father as "My dear Isa".

I have seen many who try to win favor with the state by claiming to have some very unique and special relationship with the father of the nation. This seems such a case. See the next tweet who else Jinnah used to address as "My dear".
There are more people whom Jinnah addressed as "My dear" but the following instances should be enough to say that the use of "My dear" was not something unique to Qazi Muhammad Isa. I am also not saying that this isn't something one should not be proud of but if you watch this interview, and read other writings of Faez Isa, you will definitely notice a pattern wherein he throws in many such anecdotes involving Jinnah and his father to project his image beyond of what Qazi Muhammad Isa was in reality.Image

Exactly 68 yrs ago in 1954, Governor General Ghulam Muhamad, with the help of Army, dissolved the 1st Constituent Assembly of Pak & reconstituted the cabinet forcing three* new ministers in including Gen. Ayub & Gen. Iskandar Mirza as Defense & Interior Ministers respectively.🧵
Pakistan, at that time, was politically very volatile and unstable. East-Pakistan was already put under martial law removing the elected Chief Minister Fazal Haq few months ago where governor Major General Iskandar Mirza ruled with an iron fist.
There was a dirty power struggle going on between the Governor General and the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan. I think a few bits on this lesser known struggle won't be out of place in this thread.

The parliament wanted to restrain the powers of the Office of Governor General.

Did you know?

One of the first high-profile *murder* of a Pakistani on foreign soil was of Shahnawaz Bhutto, brother of Benazir Bhutto, who was found dead in his apartment in Paris in 1985.

Bhutto's family suspected Gen. Zia-Ul-Haq and Shah Nawaz's Afghan wife for his death.🧵 Image
When Zia's martial law regime executed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the then PM of Pakistan, in a sham trial, his both sons went to Kabul and launched a guerilla war under their militant org Al-Zulfikar. Shah Nawaz was leading the training of Al-Zulfikar militants in Afghanistan.
Pakistan was hosting, training and arming Mujahideen and actively supported them against Kabul and AFG was doing the same with the separatists & ethnic militants and activists who ran terrorist and sabotage ops in Pak with the help of KGB and KHAD.

Abt 25 yrs ago, the Taliban morality police was the major reason that we left Kabul to the disappointment of our students in the computer learning institute that we had set up ourselves during the volatile early months of the Taliban rule.

Here’s how it started & ended for us.🧵
Keep in mind that it was the time when the civil war had entered its final phase & in favor of the Taliban and Kabul had fell them. Economic & security situations was still very bad. But we (an Afghan, a Pakistani & I) had decided to open a *computer learning institute in Kabul.
We had a couple of small basic institutes in Khyber, our Afghan friends wanted us to replicate the same in Kabul. So we bought a total of 4 computers (386 & 486 ) from Peshawar two with monochrome monitors, several 3½” & 5¼” disks incl. a set of 20+ disks with Windows 95 on it.

Historic photographs of the 'wrestling' match where Zbysco remained in a motionless kneeling position for 2 hours and three quarters & didn't wrestle Gama disappointing the large crowds who had come to see a wrestling match. Their jeers & boos failed to make him wrestle Gama.
Gama had challenged the famous wrestlers including Zybsco when he toured London in 1910. Newspapers ran stories of the 'silence' of Zybsco and accepting his challenge but he did there was much excitement and interest in the giants facing each other in the ring.
However the match turned out to be a disappointment for the people and for the crowds. Zbysco, right from the first minute, remained in the kneeling position for the whole run of the match before the match was stopped due to darkness and rematch was fixed on the next Saturday.

False-flag ops of a different kind!

'...another 'GEO' official disclosed to an officer of a European diplomatic mission that they [GEO TV] had taken themselves off the air in order to blame the political party, and garner support for the station.'

The confession in para 11👇 Image
When the Group Editor of Geo was queried by the US embassy staff he said that they know that many of their reporters have political agendas, are paid by ISI, military intelligence, Jamaat-e-Islami, or other interests but that they prefer not to fire or reprimand these reporters. Image
'"GEO" sees its behavior [reporting rumors, innuendo, and unsubstantiated allegations] as win-win with sensationalism and hate speech generating ratings and any attempt by authorities to rein it in allowing them to exploit their circumstance by claiming censorship.' Image
