KASHMIRI YOUTH IN SAFE HANDS

AR Bhat My mother started wailing and asking me if I have become a Jihadi, I smiled within and said to myself I have become नशे का आदी. The craze to puff the powder through the nose was such that I was ready to go to any lengths to get my fix. Today, after many years, my hands are trembling with an adrenaline rush when I am holding a needle in my hand. The only difference now is that the needle that I am holding will not take me into a fantasy world of destruction, but the needle will show me a path to success and prosperity. The breath-taking landscape of chirping birds and the beautiful blooming flowers will just not be my imaginative world. The beauty which I imagined will now be reality. I will be the creator of these beautiful stories. Iam Ayaan from the land of Firdaus and Pari Ma...

Information Age in Kashmir valley

AR Bhat In the age of hashtags, tweets, videos, chats and gifs the two things which emerge in plain sight is the velocity with which data propagates alongwith the ability it has to influence, mould opinions, perspective as also the entire narrative. The process though robust lets of two very traditional tangibles off the hook i.e veracity and anonymosity. With info age on the crads and as crudely brought out in the latest critically acclaimed motion picture ‘the social dillema’ the business module algorithms smartly dismember the verification and identification process behind an information. Anything and everything is information (without verification of course) and it can be weaponised to mould a naïve mind or the entire narrative for the populace.

EMPOWERING THROUGH EDUCATION

AR Bhat Radicalisation is a process in which an individual or a group comes to adopt increasingly rapid views in opposition to a political, social or religious status quo. Anti-national elements have been using this technique to target vulnerable individuals through various social media platforms. In India, the primary target of these anti national elements is the Muslim population, mostly from remote and backward regions. These anti-national elements manipulate vulnerable individuals on the name of Islam, Jihad and alleged atrocities which they have been suffering for centuries. The Inter-Services Intelligence sponsored propaganda and psychological operations based on religious narratives have been gradually sowing the seeds of Jihadist culture in the minds of people of Kashmir.

پاکستان کا قومی شاعر: اقبال اورانکا پاکستان!

(بختا ور بشیر) یوں تو ڈاکٹر سر محمد اقبال شاعر مشرق کے لقب سے بھی ممتاز ہیں اور ساری دینا میں ایک بڑے شاعر اور فلسفی متعارف ہیں لیکن ملک پاکستان ممدوح کو جہاں اپنا محسن مانتا ہے وہی انکو اپنا قومی شاعر بھی مانتا ہے۔ پاکستان کے عوام کیوں نہ اقبال کو اپنا محسن اور ہیرو جانیں آخر وہاں کے رہنے والے مسلمانوں کے نام سی تو بنا ہے یہ ملک۔ لیکن کیا یہ ملک جو مسلمانوں کے نام پر بنایا گیا ہے اور جسکی آئیڈیل انجینرنگ میں اقبال کا بنیادی اور اہم رول ہے، آج کی تاریخ میں اقبال کے تصور مسلمانی سے ملتا بھی ہے؟ چونکہ فرماتے ہیں: مقصود فطرت ہے یہی رمز مسلمانی اخوت کی جہانگیری محبت کی فراوانی یعنی جو فطرت چاہتی ہے وہی مسلمانی کا بھی راز ہے۔ اور ٖ فطرت دو چیزیں چاہتی ہیں: ایک تمام دینا کا بھائی چارہ universal brotherhood اور محبت کی فراوانی abundance! اگر اس شعر کو ذرا کھول دیا جائے تو یہ کہا جا سکتا ہے کہ...
