Many liberals are amazed that people believe the obvious lies that the Modi government puts out about China. There's a clear inconsistency between Modi saying that China didn't take any territory and army commanders regularly meeting their Chinese counterparts to negotiate.

They're practically begging the Chinese to leave, and the Chinese are refusing. If that were not the case, there would be no need to talk.

Also, the #Indian #Military position MUST BE WEAK, otherwise we would have kicked out the #Chinese. We simply cannot.

So why isn't the Indian public angry with #Modi?

For the same reason they were not angry with #Nehru in 1962.


Indians have a tendency to place their heroes on a pedestal and worship them. As long as they are on that pedestal, they can do no wrong.

This is why I do not think much of #SubhasChandraBose

Read this thread about the brutal treatment of #Malaya #Tamils by the Japanese in building the #DeathRailway

Bose wanted to take help from the Japanese in "liberating" #India.

Why would the Japanese ever care about "liberating" India from #British rule?

The #Japanese were imperialists. They wanted to conquer all of Asia and the Pacific.

They had already annexed #Manchuria in 1931, and everyone knew about their brutal treatment of the #Chinese.

The Japanese followed this up with the #RapeOfNanjing in 1937. This was followed by the establishment of #Unit731 in the city of #Harbin in Northeast #China, scene of one of the most egregious #CrimesAgainstHumanity in history, carried out by the #ImperialJapaneseArmy

K.K.Muhammed calls #BJP rule the dark age of Archaeological Survey of India.
Admits he expected ki "Ache din" aayenge when bjp comes to power but the truth turned out to be the exact opposite.
Goes on further to explain that bjp instead of investing in primary work of maintenance and excavation is more interested in peripheral work of building cafeteria etc around sites.

He even got boys to fish coins lying at the bottom of temple ponds. A flood in the district created bigger opportunities & he became civil contractor.

@Tinni_Aphrodite @shahidakhtar @neatshots @SakshiMalik @WithCongress @WithRG @AMUAlumniworld @ProfCong In 1993, #BrijbhusanSharanSingh was involved in a gunfight.
He had been accused of attempting to murder Vinod Kumar Singh, alias #PanditSingh, a former minister who was once friends with Singh.
During this time Brij joined #BJP.

This is from the list of "rationalized content" - i.e., stuff that will be dropped - from the syllabus of class X, from the website of the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in India.…

(1/) Image
The rationale for the "rationalisation" of content is that the same subjects are covered in a higher class.

So evolution is covered in XII standard biology, and the periodic table in XII standard chemistry. So why teach it in Xth?

(2/) Image
The problem with this logic is that, in India, students opt for different "streams" after the Xth standard (class X) board exam.

Some opt for science, some for commerce, some for arts.

Non-science stream students will NEVER encounter evolution or the periodic table again.

Savarkar and Me:

"Nhe majhshi nhe parat matrubhumi la".....

When I was a kid, my Appa (maternal grandfather) used to take me to the seashore and hum this song. I used to hum it with him, feeling a sense of pride swell up inside me. (1/n)
My Appa was a RSS Karyakarta in his youth, fiercely patriotic, extremely disciplined but at the same time could love Morarji Desai and Jawaharlal Nehru without differentiating.
As he grew up in the ranks of RSS he figured that they were more than just a "Swayamsevak Sangh" and quickly got out of it at the first opportunity.... thats another story for some other day.

“Cut down the forest, dry up the rivers, finish them off”

Pramot Singh of extremist Meitei Leepun in #Manipur on 28 April. @KimiColney on how state govt ignored/aided tensions between tribal Kukis & majority Meitei, spiralling into anarchy


“I never said this, but I love you mummy.”

Terrified 11-yr-old to his mother Mangalleima, a Meitei from Australia, trapped in their home village in Churachandpur, #Manipur, as it was attacked by Kukis on 3 May.

>80 are dead, 35,000 homeless

2/14 Image
“This is not just our story,” said Mangalleima, who said warning signs were evident for months. “As much as the Meitei are affected, the Kuki are also affected. What are we gaining from this fight?  It is a failure of law enforcement.”

India is a veritable #TowerofBabel, with more than two dozen official languages and hundreds of dialects.

This has caused lots of tension because everyone wants to preserve their culture. There's also the feeling that there should be some link language to connect the whole.
For a long time, #English was the link language, but self-styled nationalists, especially from the ruling #BJP, felt this was a betrayal of "Indian" values.

So they kept pushing for the use of #Hindi as the #NationalLanguage.

But Hindi is not even spoken by a majority (>50%) of Indians. It is merely spoken by the most Indians.

So people of other ethnicities worry that under Hindi domination, their languages would disappear.

A three-language formula was suggested as far back as the 1960s.

I wrote this to a #BJP supporter who wanted to know my political position. I am expanding and sharing it here.

1. BJP is as corrupt and inefficient as #Congress, but it gets a free pass because it is successfully advancing the cause of #Hindu #majoritarianism.

2. Examples are #Rammandir, #kashivishvanathtemple, #Article370, #TripleTalaq, #UCC, #CAANRC, #Cowslaughter bans, random #lynchings of Muslims, ban on #Azan in public, etc. A majority of Hindus in India support these, as they believe these will "put Muslims in their place."

3. In fact, #Corruption under the BJP is likely to be far worse than under Congress rule, because the media (which is now entirely under the control of Modi's corporate cronies like A&A) simply refuses to investigate any BJP corruption scams. Examples: #Vyapam, #Rafale...

A letter signed by 10 MLAs from #Manipur expressing their loss of faith in BJP

A few weeks back we saw the grand celebration at BJP HQ on electoral "success" in North East.

Dear Home Minister, the responsibility begins after winning. That's where #BJP fails. Image
#AmitShah , if you are done with moaning the shattering defeat in #KarnatakaElections , then kindly arise to address this very sensitive situation in #Manipur

It would be awesome if @amitmalviya tweets about what your party is doing about it Image
Obviously, you will not be able to do that alone for multiple reasons that include loss of your party's credibility and people's trust.
And then of course your towering incompetence.

Carry a joint party committee to #Manipur. Together we as a Nation can resolve this problem. Image

The #SupremeCourtOfIndia has made some strong remarks about the abuse and weaponization of the #EnforcementDirectorate for political purposes.

It has also strongly censured a lower court judge in a case where bail was not given.

The Supreme Court reminded the lower court judge of a fundamental principle of #jurisprudence: bail is the norm, jail is the exception. The Court made the scathing observation that the said judge should go back to law school.

These are only two examples of how #BJP governments have been abusing power and bending the law to suit their desired ends.

One could point to the extrajudicial measure of "#bulldozer justice," which has been practiced by the BJP governments in #UP, #MP, and in #Delhi.

Liberals in India are over the moon because of the Congress' victory in the #KarnatakaElectionResults2023

But public memory is short.

In November 2018, six months before the general elections of 2019, the #BJP lost to the Congress in three major states: #MadhyaPradesh, #Chattisgarh, and #Rajasthan.

Yet, in the 2019 Parliamentary elections, the BJP came back to power with a bigger majority than in 2014.

The BJP got 303 seats on their own in the 2019 #LokSabha elections, compared to 282 in 2014 - and the Congress had only 52 seats, a gain of a mere 8 seats compared to 2014.

And the Congress has won only one major state this time.

It's now 12.21 pm, and the #KarnatakaElectionResults are firming up.

#CongressParty is leading in 124/224 seats, and #BJP is leading in 70, according to the #ECI website.

Whatever horse trading happens now, it is clear that this is a humiliating defeat for #PMModi

#Modi put his personal prestige on the line and addressed several mega rallies in Karnataka. The roads of Bangalore were closed off for several days so that Modi could do his roadshows.

Given all that, this is a huge #flop

Modi's image has taken a beating.

What this tells us is that:

Modi cannot make up for lousy governance.

The #doubleenginesarkara has failed #Karnataka

Other states may have doubts about enlisting Modi's help when their turn comes.

India's so-called "liberals" have been shedding copious tears on the "injustice" of the SC verdict on the #ShivSena case.

Indian liberals are brainless and shameless.

The Shiv Sena was, is, and will be a bigoted party, whichever flavour you pick - Uddhav, Raj, or Shinde.

Don't forget that #UddhavThackeray fought the election along with the #BJP. He split with the #BJP only when they refused to yield the CM post to him.

The alliance with the #Congress and #NCP was never about principle, it was for power. This was an unprincipled power grab.

This is still the same Shiv Sena that supported the Babri Masjid demolition, that supported the installation of the portrait of #Savarkar opposite that of #Gandhi in Parliament (kinda like #Trump saying there are good folks on both sides), that engineered the #1993riots.

The people of #Karnataka have decided to give the mandate to #Congress party to Govern the state for the next 5 years.

Higher voter turnout will advantage the party even further.

#Women #Youth #Lingayats and socially marginalized classes are favoring Congress. Image
The fight in Bagalkot District is largely Congress versus BJP in the 7 constituencies - Mudhol (SC), Terdal, Jamkhandi, Bilgi, Badami, Bagalkot and Hungund.

The #Congress wave is strong here. The projection of 5 seats for Congress out of 7 is a new high Image
Five of the constituencies in the district are dominated by Marathas, while Lingayats form a majority in most of the 13 remaining constituencies.

The tectonic shift of the Lingayat voter base from BJP to #Congress is responsible for that Party to gain from a region. Image

Independent India has always been a vibrant democracy, except for the #Emergency years of #IndiraGandhi from 1975-77. That it has taken a decisive turn to religious majoritarianism under the #BJP and under #Modi since 2014 doesn't change that fact. (1/)
Democracy is not necessarily congruent with liberal values or even human rights. #Slavery was legal both in the democracy of Great Britain as well as the USA for almost a hundred years since the US' formation. Even a White woman was not considered equal to a man in America. (2/)
#Blacks in the #US did not have equal rights even after the abolition of slavery for another 100 years under #Lincoln, but we still think of the US in #1960 as a democracy.

Let me make this very clear - there is EVERY reason to Doubt the #EVM machines. IMHO they can be manipulated several ways -

precisely why every other Western & Developed Asian Democracy has reverted back to Paper Ballot.

Media reports of a difference of 1% of Votes or 6 MILLION votes between Election days & Counting day in 2019

VVPATs were destroyed in 6 months while the rule is 1 year. Court case was going on and yet it was destroyed

Media reports of 1/3rd of the Machines Malfunctioning
VVPAT counting of 1-2% is like counting 2 bundles of Rs2000 rupee notes amongst 100 bundles of Rs2000 notes at a Bank when withdrawing. Will u only count 2 Random bundles ? U will count all 100.
