I want to take you to the transcendal journey where hidden clues about karma and destiny can be decoded.

Vimshottari Dasha scheme and it is opposite moon’s own house of cancer. So, the first important thing to understand is that any planet which will be placed in the nakshatra of Shravana will aspect moon’s own house too. Here is the catch. As the planet is affecting the

A review of #Islamophobia in 2020:

The #COVID19 pandemic exacerbated Islamophobia around the globe. From #India to the U.K., #Muslims were accused of spreading the virus & evading lockdown orders.
For #Muslims, the environment meant not only being disproportionately impacted by a deadly virus but also facing targeted discrimination from those in power:…
Islamophobia in #India in 2020:
Politicians & right-wing media continued to promote anti-Muslim rhetoric & tropes, while Indian Muslims & rights activists protested against discriminatory legislation (#CAA), which rendered Indian Muslims 2nd-class citizens.

Here is Timeline of #BabriMasjid as #BabriMasjidAwaitsJustice

1528: Babri Masjid was constructed in Ayodhya by Mir Baqi on instructions of Mughal emperor Babur.
No record of it being built over a demolished temple, nor any record of claims of site being birth place of Shri Ram
1859: Controversy began after locals start claiming #BabriMasjid as birthplace of Shri Ram.

Britishers erected a fence dividing the site. Muslims used mosque's inner court to pray, Hindus were allowed to use outer court.

1934: Damage to mosque & dome in riots, rebuilt by govt
1949: Idols were planted by Hindu Mahasabha activists inside #BabriMasjid. The mosque was then locked.

District magistrate K.K. Nayar refused to remove idols on the premise that it would lead to large-scale riots. He later joined Jan Sangh, the precursor to BJP, & elected as MP.

From #BabriVerdict :
Court says :
1. No evidence that accused incited the mob on the day of demolition.
2. As to speeches, slogans etc., made earlier by accused, court refused to accept press reports, video tapes, photos as authentic. Newspaper reports hearsay evidence.
3. Court adopts a conspiracy theory in the form of an unverified intelligence report that anti social/anti-national elements could have assembled in the area under the garb of kar sewaks and surmises that they might have created trouble. (Quite astonishing!)
4. No material to show accused raised provocative slogans.

5. Incident occurred suddenly and without provocation and accused did not themselves expect that it would happen, court says.

A firm satyagrahi, he continued serving his country long after independence by participating in any cause that mattered to masses. Having donated all his 14 acres of land to the Bhoodan movement, his most cherished possesions are photos of him in Mahatma Gandhi's protest marches.

#BabriMasjid dispute would have been resolved much more amicably if Indian "seculars" did not falsify history to whitewash Islamic iconoclasm. This promoted Muslim victimhood rather than a spirit of remorse.

#5AugustBlackDay for liars and aggressors.…
The reason Islamists like #AIMPLB/Owaisi are upset at the #RamTemple is that it is a setback for Islamic expansionism. That even after 500 years dharma rises.

That is what the wailing is about. And Indian "seculars"? They're simply #JihadCoolies.

There is overwhelming evidence for Ram Temple, both archeological and textual. Here Tulsidas' poem documents its destruction, complete with dates. The destruction happened while Tulsidas was alive. One can barely imagine the pain it would have caused him.…

Hearing unconfirmed reports that ad agency for Nasdaq has pulled out of deal to display grotesque billboard featuring laying of foundation stone of #RamMandir by #Modi atop ruins of #BabriMasjid he conspired to destroy. More as I hear it. Hope for the best.
Updated reports suggest that @BrandedCities, one of three companies that sold billboard space for celebration of #BabriMasjid destruction, has pulled out. @Disney and @CCOutdoorNA billboards, reportedly, remain sold.
@BrandedCities confirmed the decision to not run the advertisements. The company “also reassured that [they] oppose the demolition of #BabriMasjid & will never allow any supremacist groups to run their ads”.…

जय श्री राम।
I don't usually make threads but here are my two cents on the #RamMandir & #FaizKhan controversy:

We can't deny that Sir KK Muhammad fought for truth all his life against Jihadis & has greater contribution than most Hindus, specially like Rajeev Dhawan & DN Jha. (1)
Also, the role of political parties has been instrumental.

While BJP, as vidharmis always said "Tareekh nahi batayenge" never gave a date yet amidst all the criticism even from patrons about it just being votebank topic; clinged firmly & believe it or not, strengthened cause.(2)
Few others supportered, notable was Shivsena under Balasaheb Thackrey who openly endorsed #RamMandir & called demolition of #BabriMasjid

But list of opposing parties is long: Congress, SP, RJD, DMK, AAP and so on. Congress under #AntoniaMaino even claimed Ram as fictitious.(3)

Some folks have asked for basic information about the #BabriMasjid, so here goes.

Warning: Only read if you’re interested in history, not communal politics.

The Babri Masjid was probably built in 1528 by a general of Babur. At the time, it likely wasn’t a big deal. Babur doesn’t even mention it in his memoirs.
Babri Masjid may have been built over temple ruins, but, owing to bad and politicised archaeology, we aren’t sure.

If it was built on temple ruins, they could be Jain, Hindu, or Buddhist in origin. They also could’ve been ruins for hundreds of years by the 1520s (or not).

Young Educated Muslim boys and girls have always been pain in the eyes of the HindutwaRashtra regime.
Be it any political party, they have always designed and supported draconian laws to contain muslims in the name of law and order.

The government on a regular basis carried out planned #Genocide of Muslims which was never reported to the outside world.
After the #BabriMasjid martyrdom Muslims started questioning the political parties who pretended to be the messiah of Muslims.
That created a panic.

Laws like TADA,POTA,MCOCA were brought to picture.
Young Muslim men from #Kashmir and other parts of the country were picked up under false charges only to be found innocent decades after rotting in jail.
Many Muslim men were encountered to fuel the anti-muslim narrative

Christmas is the calendrical.equivalent of #BabriMasjid. A date chosen to erase a sacred pagan festival. It has absolutely nothing to do with "Jesus" but is a symbol of Church's Imperialism and erasure of the native.

For pagans, cutting a tree was a serious act, Nature was sacred, not to be destroyed willy-nilly. Cutting an entire tree and dragging it indoors for decoration is an absurd act.

Perhaps it was done precisely *because* it was sacred, an act of subjugation of pagan traditions?
Many other parts of Christmas like mistletoe and holly are directly appropriating pagan traditions. In fact, celebrating Christmas as a pagan festival and dropping the #FakeNews of “Jesus” may be the only authentic way to celebrate it.

Laldas was appointed by a court of law as the chief priest in Ramjanmabhoomi temple in 1983. He vehemently opposed VHP.& demanded advani stop the rath yatra. He insisted ‘Hindus&Muslims of Ayodhya &Faizabad can resolve the issue themselves,’
He was shot dead.
On March 1, 1992, he was removed from his position by the Kalyan Singh govt. On Dec 6, 1992, the Babri Masjid was destroyed. In these months, Laldas feared for his life & approached the local administration in Faizabad seeking protection, but his request went unheeded.
in an interview to #MadhuKishwar in 1992, he pointed out that 50-60 mahants had been murdered all over Ayodhya. “I wonder how a person like me is still alive”, he said in that conversation.…

1.Hindutva politicians incite mobs to destroy a place of worship belonging to a minority community
2. Hindutva politicians win elections on the back of spreading hate towards same minority
3. Senior Judges rubber stamp the original actions of the Hindutva Mobs

The worlds largest democracy has today exposed the dangerous faultlines with the whole concept of democracy. Thus, when dangerous demagogues exploit fear & prejudices of the majority voters, the lives and freedoms of minority communities are easily sacrificed
As we have witnessed with Trump's America, Brexit Britain, France, Italy, Austria etc etc, once a mob is incited, the supposedly decent elements of the majority communities become powerless.

#India's Supreme Court clears the way for construction of #Hindu temple on site of destroyed #BabriMasjid in #Ayodhya.

I've been following this issue for 30+ years. Here's a thread analyzing the #AyodhyaJudgment:…

-I first visited #Ayodhya (& #BabriMasjid) in 1990: before the masjid was destroyed, before I entered the field of #anthropology. I went there while researching my first book, "Arrow of the Blue-Skinned God": A re-tracing of the #Hindu epic #Ramayana...
