Since yesterday, we've been hearing of rumours that the tribal Pathans (who 'helped' capsize the region of Jammu & Kashmir in 1947) are returning once again to Muzaffarabad. Here is footage from Abbotabad Adda (Bus Station) last night:
پیش خدمت ہیں قبائلی— Usman Tariq Chughtai (@UsmanTariqUSK) September 16, 2019
ایک بار پھر کشمیر کے طرف بڑے جوش و خروش بڑھتے ہوئے
پچھلی بار جب آئے تھے تب ایک آزاد و خودمختار ریاست کے ٹکڑے ٹکڑے ہو گئے تھے
اللہ کرے اس بار یہ اس غلطی کو نہ دہرائیں اور ہمارے وطن کو کسی بڑے حادثے سے دور رکھیں#KashmirWantsFreedom#KashmirBleeds pic.twitter.com/CvQauH03Zp
Here's further footage of them, with captions in English this time:
Last night Qbailis Reached again #Muzaffarbad after 72 years of attack of 1947— Usman Tariq Chughtai (@UsmanTariqUSK) September 17, 2019
Last time when they attacked they provide a way to indian and pakistani army to enter in #Kashmir.

Unsurprisingly, this story is getting a lot of coverage in social media throughout AJK:
These Kabailis (Tribesmen) even held a press conference in Muzaffarabad today. They didn't forget to mention that Kashmir - both sides - belongs to Pakistan, in their opinion. Here's some video footage of the press conference, courtesy Dunya News:
So, this is aggression on the part of Pakistan. The Qabaili (Tribesman) who also happens to be a politician clearly said and I paraphrase: Both divided parts of Kashmir belong to Pakistan. He also equated the Pathan tribesmen with Pakistan, Kashmir and Muslims.
What is their intent?
The timing of this tribal visit is not incidental. It is also clearly State sponsored.
We need a direct forum with the UK on this matter, talking with Pakistan has always ended with silence and of late with bowed heads on their part.
The British empire had George Cunningham as Governor of NWFP (KPK today) when the forbears of today's visitors drum beat their way from the tribal areas - along the same Braarkot entry point in J & K in 1947.
The Pakistanis can no longer be controlling our police or our civil defence...they may well be leading us into another religious identity war......we need a local IGP (Inspector General of Police) for a start. We cannot have a repeat of 1947 except in reverse.
Initiatives for peace, dialogue and tolerance of distinct national(istic) narratives exist throughout J & K. The States of the world and global civil society should help us recognise these internal narratives, which are being violently suppressed by India and Pakistan.
We could also approach this regionally but at least one of India and Pakistan will have to play 'ball'. Which will it be?
In a personal capacity, I've had plenty of interactions with Pakistanis throughout my life and have only a few fond memories compared to the majority of those I remember for their intolerance, chicanery and use of Islam to cover their tracks.
I maybe biased on some way but I swear I had good relations with all other nationalities. I don't even remember anybody ripping me off except citizens of Pakistan, although it is possible one or two such crimes were committed by my co-citizens of AJK. Well, we have been controlled by them for 72 years.
I remember my Indian Gujerati and Bangladeshi friends in particular. They were always so hospitable, tolerant and never tried to trick me into anything for personal benefit.
Given the security scenario in AJK and what increasingly seems to be a not so subtle attempt by the State of Pakistan to promote freelance fighters to cross the LOC en masse, the best I can do at the minute is launch an online poll to remove the lent officer, under whose presumed command our AJK police are made to act against public opinion and public interest in AJK. A local civil intelligence mechanism and civil defence operating under the command and control of a local IG could help thwart this overbearing war narrative:
For those of you who can't read the content of the FB post above:
Measuring Public Opinion in AJK:
Having spent almost 14 and a half years on the ground in #AJK , in the interest of peace in #JandK The IGP AJK must now be an aspiring citizen & State subject of Jammu & Kashmir State forthwith.
Else we may see a repeat of 1947.
Answer with Yes, No or Don't Know (DK) before commenting please...
(Roman Urdu translation of above):
AJK me Awaami Rai ko Naapna:
Yaha Azad Jammu wa Kashmir me takreeban sadey chauda saal se zameen par kaam kiya. Jammu wa Kashmir ki aman ki khaatir - mera andaaza hayy - ke IG Police AJK ka aik purumeed shehri aur Jammu wa Kashmir ka Riyasati baashinda ab laazim hay forun.
Nahi to hum Unees so Sentaalees phir dohraengey.
Aap jawaab Ha, Na ya Nahi Pata (DK) pehle likhey aur phir agar aap ne kuch mazeed likhna hay to zaroor likhe...

A note from history:
It isn't all sweet when AJK or POK is discussed in Delhi but this could be an exception:
..........Jai Sharda https://t.co/odqlYPbkl5— Ravinder Pandita (@panditaAPMCC63) September 17, 2019
MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter Faisal Malik originates from Kotli. He made his entry today in an 'Azad Kashmir' flag. He won the bout too!
In such an heightened environment where the internal narrative of AJK is crossing swords with the Pakistani narrative, some wonder why the Pakistani media isn't giving Faisal Malik any coverage, when they acted differently to when Amir Khan won a similar title. Is it because Amir Khan originates from Pakistan?
Meanwhile, here's Faisal's next bout for those of you interested:
