A harsh reality deserving the attention of our #AJK diaspora. The constitutional status of #JandK & Pakistan's inability to do anything about it can be extrapolated by referencing - 2 bright Pakistanis no less - from the following discussion emerging at: https://t.co/StvCWEgGxD https://t.co/uoo1GID8px— Tanveer Ahmed (@sahaafi) November 26, 2021

This is a form of no-platforming. Of such views n a highly contested territory that want 2 dismantle the structures of occupation using peaceful, ethical, economic & cultural means. All we are doing is exercising the very rights that people n N America & W Europe take 4 granted. https://t.co/jpUg5TrPYF— Tanveer Ahmed (@sahaafi) November 17, 2021

Engagement with the public has been incessant today. It has no sign of receding until at least midnight at the earliest.
The following relates to a speech by Beverly Hill at a conference organised by Kashmir Global Council, at Middle East Institute in Washington DC on November the 11th 2021.
Beverly Hill background in short:
She is a doctor by profession, an human rights activist, a politician and a close friend of Hilary Clinton. She is very well connected in official circles and has travelled the world including India on official invitations. She also commands great respect amongst law makers)Here are some excerpts from her speech:
“I stand here to express my solidarity with the people of Kashmir and endorse their call for independence."
"It is time to free Kashmir from a binary choice, forced on it in haste, by a departing colonial overlord. Nearly 75 years have passed since Great Britain left. The question is no longer whether Kashmir should accede to Pakistan or to India, but rather, how can Kashmir release itself from all powers to become an independent country."
"I will continue calling upon my fellow Americans to make US foreign policy consistent with our democratic principles."
"We will continue urging Congress to create a pathway toward Kashmiri independence."
“When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers. Let us send the elephants home.”
An Urdu translation of her speech can be read below:

Its been many a day since I last relaxed at home. Having a lie in beyond midday is a luxury most cannot afford in this age.
Meanwhile, what government ministers say when in government is usually tantamount to 'all is well'. Here's an example:
According to the Minister for local government & rural development Khawaja Farooq Ahmad, there is 70% availability of drinking water in Muzaffarabad.— AKLM Official (@AKLM_Official) November 5, 2021
Then, why people of #Muzaffarabad are protesting for #water & #river?#SaveRiverSaveMuzaffarabad @sahaafi @MughalAmiruddin pic.twitter.com/awP37rZuSW
We do remember Ved Bhasin, who died 6 years ago today. A great human being as well as a dedicated public interest journalist. A pity I didn't spend as much time with him as I should have:
