#Day50— #SaveRiverSaveMuzaffarabad (@khawajaatteeq) April 15, 2019
50 days have passed since the internet and phone services were shut down in most of the #Kashmir by pakistan
People in all the affected areas are protesting but of no use as pakistani media does not(not allowed)show what really goes in pakistan #OccupiedKashmir#Azadi
The 'Save Rivers - Save Lives' Movement is also described as 'Save Rivers - Save Muzaffarabad'. Today, the movement entered its 23rd day of a sit-in protest in Muzaffarabad and it was well complimented by a protest outside the Pakistani embassy in London, by AJK Civil Society - UK.
Here's some footage from an awareness march by lawyers in Muzaffarabad:
I liked the following news from Reuters:
Thwarting fraud: thousands to 'crowd-source' Indonesian election results
It starts with the following sentence:
JAKARTA (Reuters) - More than 10,000 people have volunteered to crowd-source election results posted at polling stations across Indonesia on Wednesday in a real-time bid to thwart attempts at fraud during the biggest single-day election in the world.
I liked it for a couple of reasons. The first relates to the existence of a conscientious citizenry which is what we're striving for here in AJK. So the news is inspirational in that sense. Secondly, the fact that its a majority Muslim country indicates that at least some such countries - Tunisia is another example - where Muslim society is actually coming to terms with the world they live in.
I hope this trend continues....
Returning to the battle of 3 narratives in Jammu & Kashmir:
Here's a portion of a twitter conversation I want to exhibit to illustrate a point:
Ajk and GB are part of Pakistan, I don't use propaganda. People like you use propaganda to try and tarnish the image of Pakistan but Allah makes you fail every time. Anyway leave me alone now I really don't want to talk with you.— Hussain (@Hussain94453725) April 16, 2019
If we were to assume that AJK and GB were indeed a part of Pakistan, then why does Pakistan advocate a solution via a UN plebiscite?
Acting as an owner (without legal reference) and then claiming to advocate self-determination for the Valley Kashmiris is pure chicanery.
