Historically #Kashmiri women have enjoyed freedom like none of their counterparts in the other regions of our country. The intrusion of regressive ideologies, targeted at women, in the 90’s, might have pushed them behind but they are rapidly changing the gender norms.
Education enables us to make effective decisions about ourselves, our surroundings, and our societies.
Suffice to say #Education as an institution is notably significant in a civil society. And more so for #Kashmir.
Let us know, what's the motive and who are/were some of the people running handles like Kashmir Intel (@Kashmirosint), which claim themselves to be voice or source of information of #Kashmir.
NIA in Sep 2020 filed a charge sheet against 5 operatives of #IslamicState Khorasan Province, including the #Kashmiri couple who were running Kashmir Intel for allegedly conspiring to utilize the anti #CAA protests to instigate #Muslims against #Indian government & provoke riots

Unethical terrorist. #thread
On 09 Apr 2021, Hav Mohammed Saleem Akhoon of 162 TA Bn, who was off duty at around 1645 hrs was shot dead by terrorists at his residence in Bijbehara, #Anantnag….
The martyred Hav Mohd Saleem Akhoon is survived by his wife, 9 yr old daughter & 6 yr old son. Unfortunately, Saleem is not the first soldier who has been attacked like this by terrorists in #Kashmir
For nearly two weeks the villages along LoC are witnessing days and nights without the sound of guns and bombs as the DGMOs of the two nations announced reaffirmation of the #India - #Pakistan ceasefire agreement.
It is pertinent to mention that the cease-fire was asked by #Pakistan. Although, the agreement is reported to be a result of week long back-channel discussions, what made Pakistan walk on this road? Here is a quick analysis.

Reputed corporate houses are working with govt to drive socio economic growth & development for the youth of #Kashmir.
12 districts in Jammu & Kashmir will get District Youth Centres with state-of-the-art amphitheatres, auditoriums & libraries.
For these DYCs the Govt is working with reputed corporate houses of #India, including Reliance Foundation, Ashok Leyland & the Tata group. Reliance has shown interest in setting up sports leagues in the UT, while the Tata Group has decided to invest in the IT & education sectors.
The Kashmir Walla @tkwmag better known for spreading hatred in its articles, landed in hot waters this time. On 27 Jan @tkwmag falsely claimed that Jamia Siraj-ul-Uloom school in Shopian was “pressurized by army” to hold Republic day function
The article became an embarrassment for @pzfahad & @tkwmag when the school authorities of Jamia Siraj-Ul-Uloom released an official statement clarifying that no such compulsion was there from the army or police & the news reported by @tkwmag was totally baseless.
The valley has been bearing the brunt of radicalisation that has the potential to destroy the future generation of #Kashmir. Its a ticking time bomb that needs to be addressed at the earliest.
The gradual erosion of #Sufism is an indicator of the growing radicalisation in #Kashmir. Sufism faces a stiff competition from the Wahhabi brand of Islam as preached in Saudi Arabia & other parts of the world.

19 years ago, on 20 Jan 2002, 4 Lashkar-e-Taiba #terrorists massacred 11 civilians, including eight children & a woman, & injured three others at a small village of Behra in Poonch, Jammu & #Kashmir.
The only fault of those innocent souls was that they refuse to be a part of the cycle of violence, they refused to shelter the four gun wielding LeT #terrorists. #Kashmir
Pakistan is a festered wound in the lives of #Kashmiris that has been eating away the soul of Kashmir for decades now.
Some sane leaders in #Kashmir who saw through the devilish design of #Pakistan & tried to save its people from this snake in the grass were either sidelined or worse killed in cold blood.
This includes the two most influential leaders of Kashmir #MirwaizFarooq & #AbdulGhaniLone.
#IndianArmy is not only known for its valor, gallantry & professionalism but also for its unflinching sacrifice, dedication & love for its countrymen whether in #Kashmir or rest of #India.
On 14 Jan last year during heavy snowfall, an expecting mother Mrs Shamima from Dardpura, required emergency hospitalisation. For 4 hours over 100 Army Jawans of 52 RR & 30 civilians walked with her on stretcher through heavy snow.
#IndianArmy has always come to the rescue of the people of #Kashmir whenever they needed it the most.
Khariyat Patrol is one such noble initiative by #IndianAmry to help those in need in the far flung areas of #Kashmir. #Threads
The Patrol party consists of some men with one medical assistant. The basic concept behind this party is to reach out to the remotest areas on foot where people don’t get even basic #medical facilities and provide them medical assistance & other help. #IndianArmy#Kashmir
