Many in #Pakistan don't get a proper meal for the day. But we have Crore Commanders & politicians of Pak living life King size. In this thread, we bring out questions unanswered & how the corrupt ministers & army generals are eating up whatever left #Pakistan.
🔸Starting with Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa what is the total assets of the Gen ? Where did the 4 Land Cruise cars worth billions come from?
🔸How did the Army Chief build an earthquake-proof bungalow worth billions given to his eldest son wen his service salary is not so much?
🔸Pervez Musharraf possess dozens of accounts with loads of cash & numerous properties in #Pakistan & Arab countries? Where does the money come from? Evaluation of properties possessed by him comes out to be 119 times more than his full service salary & pension?

♦️Gupkar Gang: Dynasty rule in #Kashmir♦️

#Srinagar's Gupkar Road is #Kashmir's Lutyens’ #Delhi. A 2km long path to power that slopes & curves like a peaceful dream amidst a turbulent landscape. The road ends at the residences of the #Abdullah family.

1/13 Image
The #Abdullah & #Mufti clan occupies 3 sprawling bungalows in this area. It is at these lawns the People's Alliance for #Gupkar Declaration (#PAGD ) was formulated to defend the very existence of Gupkar dynasties, which has been looting #Kashmir for quite some time now.
2/13 Image
After the revocation of #Article370, the Gupkar Gang has been seeking the restoration of the erstwhile state's special status. But the #DDCElections are paving way for a new system which appears to be putting an end to the dynastic rule of the #GupkarAlliance.

The fiction of “Azad Kashmir ”

🔶The Nomenclature of #Pakistan occupied #Kashmir (#PoK) by Pak is best e.ghow mind games are played. Pak tried smart by giving it name‘Azad Kashmir’to misguide as ‘Azad’ gives impression as if it's a free territory.

Is Azad Kashmir really free?
🔶 According to Article 21 of ‘AJK interim constitution, 1974’ #PMof #Pakistan will always be chairman of ‘Azad Jammu & #Kashmir council’. Now look into Article 24 (1) (c) of AJK interim constitution 1974 which clearly defined that...
🔶Any citizen of Pak qualifies to be member of assembly of PoK. PoK assembly can’t even amend important parts of its constitution without permission of Government of #Pakistan (Article 33 of ‘AJK interim constitution, 1974’). That’s how Pakistan made #PoK completely handicapped.

New Frontiers of #Terrorism- Earlier SocialMedia now #Cyptocurrencies.

🔶 With conventional means of funding #terrorism is under tight scrutiny by #India , #terrorists are finding it hard to survive, So its time for a new means & new #technology has come up .
🔶Its #cryptocurrency. With expertise & access to #DarkWeb & cryptocurrency available, its hard to track the agencies or souces funding them .There was a time when one could take cash secretly & perform transaction without fear of tracking by regulatory agencies.
🔶Digitisation of financial system deprived them of privacy. cryptocurrencies promise to return privacy & anonymity to #terrorists , #cryptocurrency or ‘virtual currency’ does not have govt backing. It has no legal existence in any financial system.

🔶Muhammad Ali Jinnah conceived #Pakistan as an Ideal #Democratic State & stated that constitution of #Pakistan should embody essential principles of #Islam,because religion’s idealism preaches #democracy , #EqualityForAll , #justice #fairplay for All.
🔶However, harsh realities of ‘Idea of Pakistan : An Ideal #MuslimState’, contrary to ideals of Md Ali #Jinnah, have emerged to make it a State which, in words of Hussain Haqqani, “is a volatile, semi-authoritarian, national security state, which failed to run itself .
🔶Consistently & Under Constitutional order or rule of law”. #Pakistan has become a greedy state, unsatisfied with the status quo, with the very intentions of incapable #leaders & with intent of #crorecommanders , #Pizzagenerals , #Twittergenerals

How the #NIA tracked down #Bombmaker of #Pulwama

🔶February 14, 2019, is a day that will forever live in infamy. Not bec a suicide bomber rammed explosives-laden car into a #CRPF convoy in #Pulwama, killing 40 troops, but because it pushed #India & #Pakistan to brink of war.
🔶Adil Ahmad Dar, suicide bomber who was vaporised in blast, was only a pawn. The vehicle, too, was pulverised. So, there was little physical evidence to go by. Several months after #pulwamaattack ,many questions remained. Who radicalised him? Who was bomb-maker?
🔶How did they smuggle explosives into India? Who were their accomplices? Finally, #terror investigation agency filed a voluminous 13,800-page charge-sheet against 19 accused in the case. The charge-sheet is a complex jigsaw puzzle that the #NIA painstakingly pieced together .

After 30 years of #Romance , #Pakistan Seems to have Dumped Both #Hizbul & #Hurriyat

🔶 A time when govt forces launched a major offensive against #Terrorists in #Kashmir
A majority of #Terrorists were from #HM outfit which was traditionally inclined towards #Geelani..
🔶From the sudden rise in the number of local #terrorist killed, to #Geelani’s resignation, there is apparent change in #Pakistan policy towards #Kashmir
Among all Hurriyat leaders, hardliner #Geelani always had an edge...
🔶You cannot ignore him, because of his influence on a #Kashmir society, especially youth.

So, if #Geelani left #Hurriyat, amalgam is now void of crowd-pulling attraction. In other words, #Hurriyat factions have been reduced to a dirty banner in #Kashmir

#Pakistan’s #ARMY Growing Propaganda #ISPR

We must Save Children Imprisoned in #Pakistan jihad run #Madrassas.

Let Me all Tell you a Story

When I was about 04 yrs old, I asked my mother how I was born. She said I came out from her tummy. I asked, "But how did I get in the first place?" My mother fumbled at the ques.
My elder cousin told me a fictitious story about how I was actually an orphan & I was discarded in a dustbin after my birth. She narrated that she, was my great saviour as she collected me from this terrible position & handed me over to my mom.
I was shocked at first — but, coming from a trusted elder, story seemed believable.
For many years, in fact, I wholeheartedly believed in this tale & would even narrate story to all my relatives. There was not even a speck of doubt in my mind that story could be untrue.

#Pakistan has No #Money but #ARMY is cash-flush

#Pak is desperately poor. Its #ARMY is rich beyond belief. How come ?

🔶Lets talk about something #Pakistani Deep State is most secretive about & something unique about its army.
🔶The struggle between #armys𓆗 & civil seems to come to a thaw after appt of Imran as #PM, who came to power because army backed him up .

So, it's an uneasy relation b/w Imran & #ARMY- he is going to stay as long army wishes.
🔶 The #Pakistaniarmy took advantage of authority & kept establishing businesses across #Pakistan .Today, #PakistanArmy is largest business conglomerate with more than 50 big business entities across , most of whom are largest in country .

♦️#Pakistan Soldiers for Sale♦️
#Turkey has been in the news lately, where it's prez is going all out to be the caliphate of #Islam. Off late #Erdogan has shown its keenness towards #Kashmir.
@desertfox61I @VsNarrative @SoldierNationF1 @AbuBakaar_29
The pugnacious leader is making statements in the #UN & hiring #Kashmiri separatists in media to tarnish #India 's global image. If we are talking about #Kashmir, #Pakistan is never behind. The closeness between Erdogan & Mr Imran Khan has been growing.
Now #Pakistan has put its air force pilots on sale, to fight for #Turkey. To understand the issue we go back in 2016 where the failed military coup d’etat in #Turkey involved several Turkish Air Force officials, including pilots & some other senior functionaries.

Is #Pakistan Arming the #Kashmir Centric #Terrorist Groups with #Turkish Drones?

🔶Lately, #Kashmir has witnessed several #Drone sorties from #Pakistan dropping weapons & cash. #Chinese #Kamikaze & #Turkish Bayraktar may be next lethal #weapons in hands of #Lashkar & Jaish.
🔶After article 370, it appears that so-called “#Kashmir issue” is tottering to its natural death. With every passing day, the false narratives, lies, & deceitful structures of jihadist violence are slowly & smoothly inching towards a dead end.
🔶Can #Pakistan afford #Kashmir slide out of its control? Once perception of “#Kashmir not being an issue anymore”gets ingrained in #Awam, #Pak faces existential threat. It won’t be able to justify mammoth budgets it has been accumulating for decades in name of #Kashmir to #Pak

Gilgit-Baltistan Pakistan’s 5th Province?

Pakistan PM after spending 3 yrs of his tenure chasing after his #Kashmir dream is now into some desperate attempts.
Firstly, he renamed roads then released a fantasy map,& now he wants to declare Gilgit Baltistan as its province

So now lets first understand a little geography & history before moving ahead on discovering the motives behind declaring it as a province

It lies to the North western side of Kashmir. The region is often addressed in international forums as #Pakistan administered Kashmir
Pakistan when formed in 1947 had 4 provinces. It has never treated Gilgit-Baltistan as its own, it’s not even mentioned in its constitution. Obviously, because it was an illegal occupation.

New Policy Giving Fresh #Terrorists Recruits a Chance to #Surrender.
🔶Top brass of the #SecurityForces has proposed to Centre for formalisation of an effective surrender & rehabilitation policy for those who choose to come out of live encounters and abjure violence ...
🔶To live a normal life.This, they feel, will encourage the 'boys with guns' to quit #Violence & lead a normal life.

🔶These recruits were carrying only pistols, which clearly suggests they were neither well-equipped nor trained.
#kashmirrejectsterrorism #Kashmirilivesmatter .
🔶Killing a recruit does not mean you kill militancy.

🔶Now ,We realise some boys pose pictures with guns & then upload them on social media before joining #Terrorists groups , but they are naive and do it out of peer pressure & romanticism of gun.

#TRF (The Resistance Front)

🔶Newly formed ‘The Resistance Front’ (#TRF) is like old wine in new bottle.
🔶This seems to have been created to give #Pakistan deniability from action under #FATF & is an amalgamation of existing terror groups operating in #Kashmir.

why new name ??
I.S.I and #Pakistan Gamechanger plan

🔶#TRF creation is due to the #FATF sword hanging over #Pakistan to cut terror groups funding .

🔶#Terrorism & the #terror outfits are increasingly becoming more institutionalized & #TRF is another move towards it

🔶#TRF, which is owning up #terror attacks in #Kashmir these days, is an offshoot of the #terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba & also associated with other terror outfits such as Hizbul Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammed.
