For these #Viraats, #Hindus are not victim based upon if they were wronged, but rather "who" wronged(& #Viraats can do no wrong)!!😏 Image

So far so good, haven't seen any serious error/problem in what I've seen so far, but I need to look more carefully, before making a judgement. But clearly the reform process is now well under way 👍🏼👍🏼
3/labor Best change is reversal of #Indira #Gandhi's arbitrary decision during infamous #emergency, to lower limit for, retrenchment w/o bureaucratic permission, from 300 to 100. This will help restore the #Missing #Middle", as firms with <100 workers are free to expand to 300

In this thread, let us try to understand #Savarkar through the eyes of some eminent and revered personalities throughout India.

🔸#MahatmaGandhi: Contrary to popular perceptions, #Gandhi was not at loggerheads with Savarkar.

A thread on #MahatmaGandhi in context of #KangnaRanaut's statement on Gandhism.
1.Gandhi was against all isms.
2. Nobody can claim to believe in "Gandhism" & NOT be a liberal.
2. Has anyone seen a pix of #Gandhiji ever visiting a temple, derasar, church or mosque?
3.Gandhi was a liberal & a staunch secular. He never built a temple or inaugurated one.He was the first person who denied Govt funding to #Somnath reconstruction to Kanaiyalal Munshi.
4. #Gandhi ji's prayer meetings were always interfaith in nature, including the Ashram prayers.
5. #Gandhiji was not "nationalstic" in the contemporary usage of the term. He NEVER cited or used history to underscore his social or political battles. He believed only fake nationalists use history to score points without considering the political & social context of the era.

Rabian que tras estudiar en Londres #Gandhi paso a Sudáfrica donde se quedo por 21 años ejerciendo como abogado al principio, para luego luchar por los derechos de los hindús en la #India seria allí donde adoptaría el dhoti para identificarse con los mas pobres ImageImage
Pocos saben que durante su estancia en #Sudáfrica #Gandhi voluntariamente recluto y dirigió un cuerpo de 'paramédicos camilleros' durante la Guerra #Boer de 1900, donde se dedicaba con sus hombres a recoger soldados británicos heridos de las lineas de batalla. ImageImage
Esto con la esperanza de ganar mas derechos para los hindus en Sudafrica, por parte de Inglaterra y durante este tiempo se caso y formo una familia. Ademas de que comenzó a dejar de verse como británico primero y mas como un hindú. Image

Perfection is a mirage. But the journey in search of perfection is a road worth traveling. Everyone from parents to spouses to children and friends, all of them have taught us something in that journey.

Continued... Long thread
#Part1 Image
Every moment is a learning experience if we keep our eyes open. Even strangers can leave with unforgettable lessons. Hence I salute everyone who has touched my life in this journey of five decades in pursuit of perfection.
I perhaps should have written this on Guru Purnima. But the idea just hadn't happened. Waiting for the next Guru Purnima is like looking for a mirage in these times. We don't have a warranty card against the pandemic. Hence it is "Happy Teacher's Day".

State of #unemployment & #underemployment in India is pathetic. But comparing that to the SSR case is worse. If rallying behind a cause is what it takes to shake an age old toxic tree, then why aren’t the ones who care about unemployment doing it? I care about both but saying one
is more important than the other is simply foolish. One case is about our economy and other is about drugs and sex trafficking. Not just murder. Both are fcuking up our youth.
Our #education system is a massive loophole. The govt talks about #DigitalIndia but cannot make a digital platform for education during the lockdown? How are universities around the world conducting exams? Why can't we build something when we have the ability?

#ShivamVij, the "Intellectual Left Liberal" journalist wrote this hilariously ironical piece on Prashant Bhushan. He compared Bhushan to #Gandhi and #Mandela.
#1ofN Image
"Prashant Bhushan's refusal to apologize puts him in the same league as Gandhi and Mandela" he wrote after Bhushan claimed he won't apologize to the Supreme Court in the Contempt of Court case against him.
Well, being "Left Liberal" @DilliDurAst has all the "freedom of expression" to eulogize people from his fellow Leftist Ecosystem. But since the comparison is with Gandhi and Mandela, it requires a little bit of scratching.

If you really want to make a change in the world, do something hard like #nonviolent #resistance. Read up and learn #satyagraha or change. It takes #strength & #courage; physical force is forbidden even in the so-called most favorable circumstances.…
If your cause is #righteous, Gandhi believed, the movement would speak for itself.

My personal justification for it is #psychological/#neurological (#CNS/#HPA).

If you use #violence, well the one with the biggest #ego or the biggest ego-extension (guns, tanks, war) will win.
Removing tools of violence (words, arms) from the equation, you form a mirror.

It's not easy though. You'd have to refine/drop/manage/elevate past your own #ego.

People - depending on personal history & psychology - sometimes become enraged at what they see in the #mirror.

Forget @BJP4India , @SupriyaShrinate , answer some common man’s questions!
1- Why did #Gandhi support Khilafat movement?
2- Why was Maulana Abu Kalam, who stood by Khilafat & making of Pakistan, made 1st edu minister?
3- What did @INCIndia do to stop Communal Award?
4- Why did #Congress in 1916 approve 1/3 rd representations of Muslims on basis of minority when their population represented less than that?
5- Why did they refuse to preside over the Amritsar session in 1919 after Jalianwala massacre?
2/ n
6- Why did #Congress ,in 1931 Karachi session accept Mauzie demand of, ‘minority right to protect its language, culture & education’, when Hindu deputations pleaded Gandhi against it?
Seperation of #Sindh from Bombay & its formation into a mu majority province killed Hindus!

Our #Ambedkar Ji hangs his head in shame for this pic. He opposed Casteism, not Deities. He loved Vedas. How dare u insult our Deities and demonise our Babasaheb 😠

Those who are filling ur head with Hindu Hatred are ur real enemies. Open ur eyes.

#Ambedkar Ji's Views on Partition & #Hindus.

How perfectly right he was.

No one listened to him. Now currently we've reached exactly same situation which he despised. Image

#Nehru failed #JammuKashmir & so did #SardarPatel. Abuse me, troll me but I'm certain(with facts,of course) that Patel played second fiddle when it came to J&K

For long, a propaganda has been carved to portray #Maharaja in a bad light by #Delhi
I'll prove my assertion

1. When GG Lord Mountbatten met #Maharaja in June 1947, he asked the latter to accede to either #India or #Pak but also gave a clear hint that if #Maharaja decided to accede with #Pak, it'll not be treated as an unfriendly act by the STATES DEPTT(and in turn, Patel)
2 Remember, this was also the time when #Gilgit lease was terminated. Locals in cahoots with their British masters mounted trouble in #Gilgit. #Mountbatten knew this. Patel again, didn't do anything. He was too putting his weight behind #Abdullah, who was indifferent to accession

Ambedkar on Islam.
" Pakistan or The Partition of India, 1942 "

It's a fashion to hide #Ambedkar's views on ISLAM by today's narrative builders. It's a fact that #Ambedkar for all enticements never embraced Islam.
He was clear about Danger posed by ISLAM to INDIA.
Ambedkar clinically examined ISLAM, Muslim psyche, & the dangers it posed to India. He clearly foresaw that Hindus & Muslims can't co-exist & British India to be Partitioned after "complete exchange of population "
He opposed partition of Sind from Bombay Presidency.
#4TH chapter, he traced Muslim invasion, butchering, forced conversions, destruction of temples, monuments... Not merely looting but converting KAFFIR is aim.

Criticised #Gandhi, his silence on killing of #SwamiShraddhanand. Criticised APPEASEMENT of Muslims for UNITY.

India's first Prime Minister famously said "Don't spare me Shankar" (a leading Indian cartoonist). But #Gandhi did not spare Shankar ;) I wrote about this in my book Caricaturing Culture.

#Gandhi tapped the power of #cartoons & #public communication early into his journalistic career in #SouthAfrica. Cartoons could be Satyagraha (truth force). His #newspaper the Indian Opinion published and interpreted British cartoons.

After reading 6 chapters of this book, I am totally convinced that, We RWs have played as per trap laid down for us by LWs on #savarkar's alleged involvement in #Gandhi Assassination plot. From when all this Defaming& insulting #savarkar started?
After death of #veersavarkar , India Gandhi had praised his work & issued a stamp in his memory. In 1981, she also donated Rs 11k (Today's 5 lacs) to #savarkar smarak in Mumbai. Many Marathi Socialist n Leftist intellectuals started attacking Savarkar after his death.
But, their attacks were restricted to 'Reformist', 'Modern' Savarkar who talked of abandoning Caste n Varna system, breaking 7 shackles of Hinduism, etc. They called it all falsehood & used to portray Savarkar as some Orthodox & Manuvadi having belief in Caste system.
