Untouchability practised by Muslim rulers of Kashmir and Imran Khan's Riyasat-e-Medina

Kapil Dev
Over 100 #Hindu #women were denied food by the management of Al-Habib Hotel, Gharo (Thatta) saying "We cannot serve you food because you are Hindus". Such discrimination on the basis of religion will distort our examplery interfaith harmony.
Where are we heading to?
2:52 AM - 18 Aug 2019
Kapil Dev is a human rights activist based in Sindh. Thatta is a city in Sindh.
Dalits still face slavery in Pakistan, says a piece published in The Article.
Some of the recently published reports by Pakistan’s newspaper ‘The Dawn’ offer a glimpse into the lives of Hindus. 
Records available in the public domain suggest that around 80 per cent of Hindus in Pakistan are Hindu-Dalits. Their current population is said to be around two million. 
During the partition, they probably decided to stay back due to financial reasons or due to the Dalit-Muslim unity theory. The unity theory shattered into pieces back in 1950 itself when Pakistan’s first Dalit minister Jogendra Nath Mandal not only resigned from the Government but returned to live in India. After Pakistan’s founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s death, no one seems interested in carrying forward his legacy.
Today, the Dalits are the worst victims of discrimination, kidnapping for ransom, rapes, false blasphemy cases and poverty, even more than the upper caste Hindus in Pakistan. The religious minorities face slavery at the hands of feudal landlords in remote areas which journalists hardly access.
Most of this population remains uneducated and immensely improvised. More than 75 per cent of the Hindu-Dalit population in Pakistan remains illiterate. 
Individuals from Jathi, Sochi, Guwaria, Kabutra, Gahra, Rawra, Sansi, Jogi, Balmeke, Bagri, Lohar, Oad, Meghwar, Kolhi, and Bheel groups are referred as scheduled caste (Hindu Dalits). They form the most of the population in Pakistan’s Thar district located in the Sindh province. 
Feudal landlords control these rural areas and poverty; slavery is rampant in the region. As per one estimate, people from the marginalized groups mostly work as agricultural laborers, garment factory workers, or as sweepers in Pakistan. As they are socially excluded and economically marginalized, they do not even have access to primary health care.
High level of intolerance against Dalits

In some parts of Pakistan, the land owned by people from scheduled caste(s) has also been taken over by the Evacuee Trust Property Board and the Enemy Property Board. To make matters worse and to divide Hindus, Pakistan Government has started marking Dalit as a different religion.
The level of religious intolerance is such that dead bodies of Hindu Dalits buried in Muslim graveyard have also been dug out in the past just because they were non-Muslims.
The Valmiki community has traditionally been associated with cleaning/sweeping work. 
In Punjab, the Valmikis are known as 'Churha,' a word that has pejorative connotations.
It's interesting that Article 370 and 35A allowed Kashmiri rulers to deny citizenship rights to the Valmiki people who were brought decades ago from other states to live and work in J&K. These Kashmiri rulers, who are overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim, used Article 370 and 35A to exploit the Valmikis and deny them any opportunity for social mobility and progress.
It's no surprise that the Kashmiri elite and their Pakistani sponsors -- both 'Hindu'-hating Islamic supremacists, are mad at the scrapping of Article 370 and 35A.
Watch this video to understand how Valmikis (knows as 'Churha' in Punjab) have been treated in Pakistan. Many of these people of the Valmiki community in Punjab (Pakistan) have long been converted to Christianity, so that the descriptor 'Churha' is now presumed to mean Christian.

Imran Khan wants you to Google for information on Indian connection with genocide; here's what I found in 30 seconds of search!

The world just learnt that Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan puts great stock in Google, which is where he seems to be getting most of his 'education', finally.
Better late than never.
The more he explores Google the more he sounds excited!
Since this morning (18 August 2019) the Pakistani fast bowler has posted a series of hysterical tweets -- such as this one -- urging the world to "Google" for information on India's connection with "ethnic cleansing" and "genocide".
I don't find it surprising that Imran Khan has gotten all excited about "ethnic cleansing" and "genocide"; it's probably because this is the first time he's discovered the fact that Pakistan is a country whose very basis was ethnic cleansing of non-Muslims from the territory that it currently occupies.
I should know: I am the first generation born to those who fled the killing, plunder, abduction and rape of the Hindus, Sikhs and other non-Muslims who had belonged to that territory from time immemorial -- the territory that was as Bharatiya as Gangetic plains. 
So there are millions of people like myself in India who have had the first hand or generational experience of the ethnic cleansing carried out by the Islamist terrorists and goondas in order to carve a territory for a barbarian ideology of hatred and terror; we don't need Google to find out what we have lived through.
I nevertheless did Google for the information -- as advised by the Pakistani cricketer -- on India's connection with "ethnic cleansing" and "genocide" and the following is what I found in just about 30 seconds of search.
(I can find mountains of more such information if I were to do about 30 minutes of Google search.)

1. Pakistani politician and lawyer Chaudhry Aitzaz Ahsan says in this video (relevant part 58:50 minutes to 1:00:55 minutes) that Pakistanis like to criticize India for riots in which Muslims suffer violence.
"However, Muslims live in huge numbers there. We (in contrast) have carried out ethnic cleansing (here)... sparing no Hindus, Christians. The few who are left here want to leave this country and we can give them no reason as to why they should stay," said Ahsan in a discussion on 'Sindh Sagar and creation of Pakistan' at Karachi Literature Festive-2015.

2. Bangladesh war: The article that changed history
(By Mark Dummett, BBC News, 16 December 2011)
On 13 June 1971, an article in the UK's Sunday Times exposed the brutality of Pakistan's suppression of the Bangladeshi uprising. It forced the reporter's family into hiding and changed history.

3. 1971 Bangladesh genocide
The genocide in Bangladesh began on 26 March 1971 with the launch of Operation Searchlight, as West Pakistan began a military crackdown on the Eastern wing of the nation to suppress Bengali calls for self-determination rights.
During the nine-month-long Bangladesh War for Liberation, members of the Pakistani military and supporting Islamist militias from Jamaat-e-Islami killed between 300,000 and 3,000,000 people and raped between 200,000 and 400,000 Bangladeshi women, according to Bangladeshi and Indian sources, in a systematic campaign of genocidal rape.
In December 2011, a BBC News report cited unnamed "independent researchers" as claiming that between 300,000 and 500,000 people were killed. The actions against women were supported by Jamaat-e-Islami religious leaders, who declared that Bengali women were gonimoter maal (Bengali for "public property").
As a result of the conflict, a further eight to ten million people, mostly Hindus, fled the country at the time to seek refuge in neighbouring India. It is estimated that up to 30 million civilians became internally displaced. 
During the war, there was also ethnic violence between Bengalis and Urdu-speaking Biharis. Biharis faced reprisals from Bengali mobs and militias and from 1,000 to 150,000 were killed. Other sources claim it was up to 500,000.

Kashmir and Waziristan: Pashtuns aren't so keen on going to Jannat!

Abdul Hai Pashteen
شمالی وزیرستان میں ایک دفعہ پھر دفعہ 144 کا نفاذ.غیر مقامی افراد کا داخلہ ممنوع. کشمیریوں کے لئے انسانی حقوق مانگنے والے پاکستانیوں کو اپنے ملک میں انسانی حقوق کی پامالی نظر نہیں آتی
4:10 AM - 17 Aug 2019
शुमाली वज़ीरिस्तान में एक दफ़ा फिर दफा 144 का निफ़ाज़; ग़ैर-मक़ामी अफ़राद का दाख़िला ममनूअ. कश्मीरियों के लिए इन्सानी हुक़ूक़ मांगने वाले पाकिस्तानियों को अपने मुल्क में इन्सानी हुक़ूक़ की पामाली नज़र नहीं आती
Section 144 imposed once again in North Waziristan. Non-locals aren't allowed to enter the region.
Pakistanis, who demand human rights for the Kashmiris, can't see the trampling of human rights in their own country!
Afrasiab Khattak
Section 144 imposed in N. Waziristan banning  gatherings & entry of the non-locals in the district. With the elected reps of the people jailed on false charges Waziristan is once again being turned into a black hole for the people and a heaven for Taliban.
5:45 AM - 17 Aug 2019
North Waziristan District is a former agency of defunct Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) and now a district in Bannu Division of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan. 
It is the northern part of Waziristan, a mountainous region of northwest Pakistan, bordering Afghanistan and covering 4,707 square kilometres. The capital city of North Waziristan is Miramshah.
In 2014, about 929,859 people were reported to be internally displaced from North Waziristan as a result of Operation Zarb-e-Azb, a military offensive conducted by the Pakistan Armed Forces along the Durand Line.
In 2018, it became a district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province with merger of FATA with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The Pakistani army is trying to crush the rising tide of Pashtun nationalism and demand for civil rights in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), wrote Mohammad Taqi in The Wire in June 2019.
(Two PTM members of the Pakistan National Assembly, Ali Wazeer and Mohsin Dawar, have been in custody on trumped up terrorism charges; a curfew was imposed on the region in May, leading to a humanitarian crisis.)
For decades, the army has kept Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) – a region inhabited exclusively by Pashtuns – under tight control. 
The army essentially carried on with the British policy of a double frontier where the Durand Line formed a working boundary between the FATA and Afghanistan but a second, internal boundary separated the FATA from mainland Pakistan.
FATA was used effectively as a sandbag against Afghanistan even before the Soviet or American armies rolled into that country. The army had helped the transnational jihadist patriarch Jalaluddin Haqqani, his madrasa and training camp in North Waziristan in 1973. 
The FATA served, in the words of Sir Olaf Caroe, as a point d’appui from where jihadist insurgencies were launched in Afghanistan to neutralize the Afghan support for the secular Pashtun and Baloch nationalist, and at times separatists, in Pakistan.
In order to maintain this launching pad, the FATA was kept in a constitutional, legal and informational black hole for generations. 
It was ruled via a British-era draconian Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR), which even inflicted collective punishments on tribes, clans and families for the alleged crimes of an individual. In fact, even after FATA was given constitutional rights a year ago and merged with the contiguous KP province, it has remained under an undeclared martial law and unannounced FCR.
The hapless region has essentially remained behind an iron curtain. The army groomed, trained and unleashed jihadist terrorists in all directions from the region. These jihadists also targeted the local population and killed hundreds of tribal elders. The army either stood by at the time, or worse, signed peace deals with the terrorists. The army eventually did go after the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which was attacking it regularly by then.
The Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM), or the Pashtun Protection Movement, is a social movement for Pashtun human rights based in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, Pakistan. 
Formerly called the Mahsud Tahafuz (or Protection) Movement, it was founded in May 2014 by eight students at Gomal University, Dera Ismail Khan, as an initiative for removing landmines from Waziristan and other parts of the former FATA, affected by the war in North-West Pakistan.
The movement rose to prominence in January 2018 when it began a justice movement for Naqeebullah Mehsud, who was extrajudicially killed in a fake encounter staged by the police officer Rao Anwar in Karachi.
When the movement gained popularity among the Pashtuns in late January 2018, the word 'Mahsud' in its name, which referred to the Mahsud tribe from Waziristan, was changed into 'Pashtun' to refer to all Pashtuns. 
The movement presented several demands to the Pakistani government and military, including punishment to Rao Anwar, a truth and reconciliation commission on extrajudicial killings in the country, presenting missing persons before courts, and removal of landmines from the Pashtun tribal areas.
Manzoor Ahmad Pashteen is a human rights activist from South Waziristan, Pakistan. He has spent years lobbying to draw attention to the plight of the Pashtun people, especially those from Waziristan and other parts of the former Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Pakistan.
He is the chairman of Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM).
The eldest of eight siblings, Pashteen belongs to the Shamankhel Mahsud tribe of the Pashtuns. His father, Abdul Wadud Mahsud, is a primary school teacher at his village.

Reporterकश्मीर के लिए ऐलान होता है कि जिहाद फ़र्ज़ हो गया -- आप लोग जाएं। तो आप अपनी टीम को लीड करेंगे?
If it's announced that Jihad for Kashmir has become obligatory (for the Muslims), will you lead your team (to the battlefield)?

Manzoor Pashteenएक तो हमने बहुत सारी जिहादों में हिस्सा लिया है और हम (में से) बहुत सारे शहीद हो गए हैं. तो हम नहीं चाहते कि हमारे साथ दीगर बिरादरियां जो हैं वो बेचारे इस बड़ी नेअमत से महरूम हो जाएं। हम इसका मौक़ा बाक़ी बिरादरियों को भी देंगें कि वो भी जन्नत हासिल करें; वो भी शहीद हो जाएं। हम इतने ज़ालिम कभी नहीं हैं कि हमेशा ये चीज़ अपने पास रखेंगें।
First of all, we've taken part in a large number of Jihads and a lot many of us have been martyred; so we don't wish to keep the other communities deprived of this great blessing (of martyrdom).
We are going to allow other communities to avail themselves of this opportunity so that they too are able to attain Jannat by becoming martyrs.
We are not so selfish as to monopolize this thing (the opportunity to go to Jannat by being martyred in war).
अगर जिहाद की बात की है - हमने लड़ने के लिए 7-8 लाख की फ़ौज (पाकिस्तानी फ़ौज) भी बिठाई है; उसको हम टैक्स भी देते हैं. उनके पास जंगीहम क़बाइलियों के पास टैंक हैं जंगी जहाज़ हैं (जबकि) फ़ौज के पास हैं.
तो बहुत ज़बरदस्त सलाहियतें हैं इस फ़ौज में लड़ने कीं. हम बिल्कुल भेजेंगे उनको और रिक्वेस्ट करेंगे कि वो बिल्कुल जाएं और लड़ें -- बिल्कुल लड़ें; इनकी तरबियत पूरी उम्र इसी चीज़ की हुई है.
Talking of Jihad, (let's not forget that) we have set up a 700,000-800,000-strong army (Pakistani army) for which we pay the taxes. While we tribals have neither tanks nor fighter planes, the army has everything.
So the army has terrific capabilities to fight. We are certainly going to send them to the battlefield -- to request them to go fight. After all they have spent their entire lives being trained to fight...

'Peaceful' wars of the 'religion of peace' in the eyes of Pakistanis

According to Allama Shibli Noumani, all major Islamic battles were defensive. If you disagree, please quote your source.
I'm not defending anyone, I'm just stating via an academic opinion.

Please enlighten us what was “defensive” about the wars waged by Zaheeruddin Babar, Ahmed Shah Abdali, Mehmood Ghaznavi, Sher Shah Suri, Arghons, Turkhans and Mohammed Bin Qasim? Who had attacked them?
