According to reports in Express Tribune, an Indian YouTube channel had been posting songs by Pakistani artists on their YouTube channel without obtaining any legal rights from the original composers.

The report states that music by artists like Bayaan, Kashmir – The Band, 21 The Band, Naseer Afridi, and many others were featured on the YouTube channels ‘The Last Cigarette’ which has nearly  375, 000 subscribers.

After getting to know about out about the illegal YouTube channel, a Pakistani record label Rearts, that represents Bayaan, Kashmir, 21 The Band, Naseer Afridi, and Khamaaj sent out a legal notice, blaming the YouTube channel of copyright violation.

Rearts shared the news on Twitter. “In the past few days, we were brought to the attention of a YouTube channel by the title of  ‘Last Cigarette’. This channel had roughly 375k subscribers with millions of views on nearly all of its posted videos,” the tweet read. “The music on this channel featured the content of five artists from our label which had not been obtained from the artists with prior consent.”

The statement further added that the YouTube channel had also enabled monetization, which means that a significant amount of revenue had been generated from these videos alongside the fact that the views received were greater than the ones on the original video.

“We came to know about the violation of copyright through an algorithm we use to keep tabs if any of our music is being published illegally,” Butt shared. “We found out that material from five of our artists was being used without permission. The fact that the person would pick all the hard work of our artistes, without giving due credit was unjust. We reached out to him for obtaining the license, but he wouldn’t agree to it. So we  sent him a copyright strike – but sadly, to no avail.”

“We did so to ensure that we could get in touch with the owner of the channel so we could meditate and figure out due compensation,” Butt further elaborated. “The channel agreed that they had not obtained the content with the permission of the artists or the label and also had monetization enabled on their account, yet they claimed that they were only doing this to ‘promote art’ and had no ulterior motives whatsoever.”

Butt went on to add that once the label decided to send out a notice, there was a severe backlash. “The Last Cigarette has a very loyal fan following. Once they put up an apology, owning to the violation, the fans started freaking out,” he added. “Fans thought it was the bands who sent a legal notice to the channel so they then started bombarding them with hate.”

Imran Khan Defends Chinese Aggression On Border; Calls India A Big Threat To The Region

Published

on

Just moments after India issued a stern warning to China over the ongoing border dispute in Ladakh, Pakistan PM Imran Khan jumped in to defend it’s all-weather ally China.

Khan took to twitter to release a series of tweets attacking the Narendra Modi led government and defending Chinese actions in the region.

The cricketer-turned-politician alleged that the current regime in the country is becoming a “threat” to India’s neighbours. “Bangladesh through Citizenship Act, border disputes with Nepal & China and Pakistan threatened with false flag operation.

Khan also said that the current government is not only a threat to India’s minorities by relegating them to 2nd class citizens’ status but also a threat to regional peace. In the same tweet, he also referred to Indian Administered Kashmir as an illegal annexation and a crime under the Geneva Convention.

Pakistan had been silent on the ongoing dispute between New Delhi and Beijing which has intensified since the incidents in Pangong Lake in Ladakh and Nakula Pass in Sikkim.

The online assault from Imran Khan comes after Ravi Shankar Prasad and General VK Singh (Retd.), union minister under the current government, hit back at China for its increasing aggression. VK Singh even warned Beijing that no one can stare back at Modi’s India.

Tensions have flared up between Chinese and Indian troops in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley. Both sides have deployed thousands of troops on either side of the line of control, leading observers to draw comparisons with the 2017 standoff between India and China in Doklam.

Pakistan’s support for China is no surprise since both countries maintain warm relations. Beijing has invested heavily in developmental projects in Pakistan with the latest being the Diamer Basha Dam in Gilgit-Baltistan.

Earlier, Khan had called Indian assertions of infiltration from Pakistan’s side of the Line of Control (LoC) baseless and said it is a “continuation of a dangerous agenda”. He had also warned the international community of its responsibility to act against the war crimes and genocide being committed in Jammu and Kashmir.

PM Kha had stated the right-wing Indian government, under the cover of the pandemic, has continued its Hindutva supremacist agenda, driven by the fascist RSS ideology.

Pakistan Certain That India Will Launch Military Strikes On Pakistan Under False Flag Operations

As tensions between nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan flared-up after New Delhi revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, Islamabad has hinted at engaging with New Delhi if it reverses the Article 370 move.

Can Kashmir Conflict Drive India, Pakistan Towards A Nuclear War?

“The UNSC resolutions are the only mechanism to solve the Kashmir dispute and India should reverse its August 05, 2019 move before any substantive and meaningful dialogue is possible,” said Special Assistant to the PM Imran Khan on National Security Dr Moeed Yusuf.

Yusuf, speaking at an international conference titled “Covid-19 Kashmir Media Conference” accused India of using coronavirus as a cover to further expand its so-called oppression of Kashmiri people.

The global community, the UN and health-related international organizations need to take urgent note of the grave humanitarian situation in the region and provide immediate medical relief, Yusuf said.

Lamenting further, Yusuf highlighted that the international media needs to understand the fascist ideology of India being promoted by the Modi government against Muslims and especially Kashmiris. He highlighted that fascism has not posed such a dangerous threat to regional and global peace since Adolf Hitler.

He said the rightful struggle of Kashmiris for their right to self-determination is a response to India’s brutal crackdown on people and Pakistan will continue its diplomatic and political support for the Kashmir cause at all global forums.

Reiterating Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s statements, Yusuf warned that India could use a false flag operation to support its expansionist plans by launching military action against Pakistan.

Imran Khan Cites ‘Fourth Geneva Convention’; Says India Committing War Crimes In Kashmir

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, for a second time in a week, Pakistan PM Imran Khan cautioned the global community that India was planning to attack Pakistan. Khan’s fresh warning came as India reportedly violated ceasefire violations along the Line of Control.

“I am reiterating again that a false flag operation is imminent from India in order to divert world attention away from its ongoing genocide in IOJK [Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir],” Khan tweeted

India termed Imran Khan’s allegations over false flag operation as “malicious propaganda”. When asked about PM Khan’s allegations, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said: “Can’t dignify malicious propaganda by a comment.”

Pakistani experts talking to EurAsian Times commented that India might be wanting to keep Pakistan Army on their toes on the eastern border and so that their presence is limited on the Afghan border where Taliban is keenly awaiting to regain power and New Delhi opposes it.

Imran Khan Cites ‘Fourth Geneva Convention’; Says India Committing War Crimes In Kashmir

Published

on

Two Border Security Force (BSF) soldiers have been killed after three terrorists launched an attack in Soura near Pandach area of Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir.

The tensions in Kashmir even during the pandemic has been rising. A neighbourhood of 15 houses in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir was recently gutted by a calamitous fire during an exchange of fire between Indian security forces and militants.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan tweeted: 15 homes torched by Indian Occupation forces in Srinagar yesterday as 900k security forces subject Kashmiris to brutal oppression. Modi’s Hindutva Supremacist Occupation Govt is committing war crimes in IOJK including changing the demography in violation of 4th Geneva Convention

The Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, generally termed as the Fourth Geneva Convention is one of the four treaties of the Geneva Conventions adopted in August of 1949. While the first three conventions dealt with combatants, the Fourth Geneva Convention was the first to deal with the security of civilians in a war zone.

Kashmir Encounter

The encounter broke out on 19 May in the densely-populated town of Srinagar. Officials disconnected the internet and telephone services, a strategy often adopted by Indian forces so ensure militant sympathisers are not given a chance to assemble at the encounter site and disrupt the operations.

The Indian government also disallowed handing over the bodies of the two killed militants to their families, a recently introduced tactic by New Delhi to prevent large-scale funerals and project the militants as heroes.

One of the killed militants, Junaid Sehrai, is the son of Kashmir’s prominent separatist leader Ashraf Sehrai. His party, Hurriyat Conference, promotes the merger of Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan and seen by many as a stooge of Islamabad.

Sehrai led the funeral prayers for his son in absentia. Junaid was a member of the Pakistan-backed Hizbul Mujahideen, declared as a terrorist group by India as well as the US and the EU.

Terror Continues In Kashmir

Officials said Constable Rana Mondal and Constable Jiaul Haque were killed terror attack which took place a day after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Junaid Sehrai and another militant were killed in Srinagar encounter.

Police sources said the militants snatched the weapons of the two BSF men before escaping. Officials said the BSF soldiers were taken to the hospital where both were declared brought dead. “Our two troops lost their lives in the attack. They were on routine patrolling duty when the militants attacked them,” a BSF officer said.

A 12-year-old boy, who was injured after a house collapsed during the encounter succumbed to injuries. “The boy had burn injuries. He died this evening,” SMHS Hospital medical superintendent Dr Nazir Chowdhary said.
