I did begin to sit down to write at 2020hrs but.......connectivity issues....
As it rained last night in healthy quantity, the electricity has predictably become more present than absent.
I've hinted before that Pakistan has an unhealthy reliance on hydropower-ed electricity (particularly from our territory) and its selfish - coupled with myopic - strategy has created havoc with the environment - particularly in the last few years - such that the natural flow of water is not increasing enough in summer - despite the melting of glaciers - thus a reliance on rain to aid the water flow into these hydropower projects.
Rain deprives us of electricity when it comes - because of weak infrastructure - but once it recedes, the additional flow of water creates more power generation, leading to more electricity for us.
I will give you a widely quoted figure of roughly how much electricity is produced in AJK and how much we need:

27 سالہ خاتون حسینہ بی بی اور اس کے 18 ماہ کے معصول پھول کے چار قاتل اور چار سہولت کار۔#NeelumValley @SardarTanveerIK @sahaafi @MughalAmiruddin @UsmanTariqUSK @WaqarBagga @TariqNaqash @Yaseenusman_OFL @aakmaljarall @HamidMirPAK https://t.co/4bqHVFcKVb— Zaara (@zaara_kashmiri) June 25, 2022
English translation of the Urdu text above:
27 year old lady Haseena Bibi and her 18 month old innocent flower (child) were killed by 4 people, assisted by 4 others.
End of translation....
I'll try and summarise the story too, which can be read in Urdu at the link above.
Paalri in Dawaarian, which is in the Neelam Valley is where this gory incident happened.
This is an important development in the story of Asmaad Aslam, the young boy who accidentally crossed over the LOC from Tithrinote, Hajeera in November last year:

It is indeed. It is also to be noted that - at least in this day and age - it is more likely that non Muslims will understand the universal messages of Islam rather than Muslims themselves. In general, Muslims adopt the faith but not the guidance > complications 4 all humanity.— Tanveer Ahmed (@sahaafi) June 23, 2022
There was always likely to be a sharp turn in matters related to Malik Waseem Kashmiri versus the State of AJK. I've been studying this 'test case' since the middle of December last year. In fact, I dedicated a folder for this issue and began collecting evidence on all matters related to it, on the 13th of December 2021.
There was a twist yesterday and it is just ballooning as an issue, with more thrust than at any point since Malik Waseem and his family were evicted on January the 17th 2022, from Sardar Singh and Ratan Singh's land in Naluchi, Muzaffarabad; that they had occupied as refugees from the other side of JKA (Kupwara) in 1949. after migrating in 1947.
The man on the ground representing the 'strong arm of the law' was Deputy Commissioner (DC hereon) Muzaffarabad Nadeem Janjua, who used all available tools in the British colonial manual to allegedly detain, intimidate, harass, torture, beat and blackmail Malik Waseem and his family.
He was following orders from the Supreme Court of AJK, claimed he and almost every other asset of the 'governance system' in Muzaffarabad.
Yesterday morning, news reached most parts of AJK that a stolen car (from Lahore last year) with government of AJK number plates, was in the 'custody' or 'use' of DC Muzaffarabad.
According to the following video report by a Pakistani news channel, namely City 41:

Meanwhile, the following was a protest outside national press club Islamabad today, by students in response to Punjabi students conducting a lethal attack on Kashmiri students at Qaid e Azam University a few days ago. They demanded that the attackers be immediately arrested:
