The Pulwama Attack in the Valley of Kashmir yesterday dominated discussion on AJK social media. Divergent views are emerging and they are difficult to debate so close to the event.
In the larger picture, this is peace versus war and war is winning at the moment.
Locally, we've tried to phrase this internal solution as ownership-building measures OBMs, conducted by the inheritors of the princely State of Jammu & Kashmir. That responsibility should exclusively be ours because our survival depends on it. We have a vested interest in peace.
India and Pakistan should lay out their reservations respectively for a neutral Jammu & Kashmir
Meanwhile, I'm still worried about my friend Baba Jaan. Here's a petition for his release:
Government of Pakistan: Free Baba Jan - The longest serving political prisoner in Gilgit Baltistan. - Sign the Petition! https://t.co/ixdxo9O1mK via @Change— Tanveer Ahmed (@sahaafi) February 15, 2019
