Reports are emerging of widespread anti-#Muslim violence in Delhi, India. Mosques have been set aflame, Muslim neighborhoods attacked, and Muslim cemeteries desecrated by Hindu-nationalist mobs.

Following is a thread of news and analysis as it breaks.

When @thewire_in interviewed a pro-government #Hindutva group about the violence, they replied:

"How dare they protest like this in our country? Is it (their) country? It is our country. We will show them their place."…

Are #Hindu/#Muslim riots inevitable in #India?
-Of course not. (So much academic literature-- see @ProfVarshney among many others).

One key variable is government response. Take two conflagrations in #Gujarat in 2002:
-Feb 2002: 58 #Hindus killed in #Godhra. ~1,000+ #Muslims killed while police (under #Modi) stand by.
-Sept 2002: Terrorists kill 30 at #Akshardam temple. Could have led to mass riots, but #India's PM Vajpayee sent CRPF in quickly to control the situation. No riots.
In both 2002 #Gujarat cases, the initial provocation was extreme (in #Godhra, still disputed whether fire was intentional or accident: Separate question).
-Govt can't stop killing of 30 people, or even 58. But it CAN stop the killing of 1,000.

If it doesn't, it's complicit.

#Vijayanagara: The Never to be Forgotten #Hindu Empire

In the 16th century, Vijayanagara was a buzzing and important metropolis.

All this came to an end in 1565 when the Deccan sultanates razed Vijayanagar to the ground leaving just the captivating legends
and atmospheric ruins that we explore today.

Socially diverse and religiously tolerant, the Vijayanagar empire’s seat was a metropolitan hub that attracted travelers from around the world. The wealth of Hampi attracted large crowds and a vibrant society,
but it also brought the unwanted attention of greedy enemies. As a result, after repelling centuries of attacks, Hampi finally fell under a combined onslaught of five medieval Islamic dynasties, which won a decisive battle in 1565 CE known as Battle of Talikota.

#BetelLeaf #Ayurveda #Science

According to Ayurveda, betel leaves contain certain elements which can help to cure diseases caused by air and bile. According to the Vaidyas in Sanskrit, betel leaf juice was often prescribed as a remedy for infected ears and pus formation.....
and can cure a headache by applying it on the forehead.
A betel leaf contains vitamin C, iron, carotene, fibre, potassium, iodine and thiamine and hence is used widely in Aryuvedic medicines to prevent bad teeth, treat ulcers and acne.

It help in relieving coughing and even to cure respiratory disorders like bronchitis.

#Hindu #Rituals #Marriage #Love

According to the traditions in many South-East Asian countries, a combination of Betel leaf and Areca nuts is inseparable as they symbolize loyalty in love...

Devotee : "Swami ji, who is the founder of Christianity?''

Swami @Chinmayananda : ''Jesus''

Devotee : ''Who is the founder of Islam?''

Swami Chinmayananda : "Mohammed''

Devotee : ''Who is the founder of #Hinduism?''

Swami Chinmayananda : ''.....''
Devotee : ''What Swami ji, your religion doesn't have a founder?''

Swami Chinmayananda : ''There is no one particular founder for Hinduism as its not an outcome of one personality's knowledge.

Let me put the same question to you.

Who is the founder of Chemistry? Physics?
You cannot answer, because these are sciences which had contributions from plenty of scientists.

In Hinduism, Our Rishis were the scientists".

Devotee : .........

Swami Chinmayananda : ''If you ask a Christian to give book on Christianity, he gives you Holy Bible.

I am going back home ❤️❤️
Is it weird that I cried after reading this news article ?
Is it weird that I have a lump in my throat ?

#Kashmir #kashmirihinduexodus

Waise is proposal ka vishleshan karke aur post karungi.

After reading the article, here is my analysis:
Pros: Temples will be constructed
The townships will be scattered around 10 districts of #Kashmir and if they are anything like the "modern day concentration camps" in Jagti, then we are doomed. It also makes us sitting ducks

These are some of the fortunate #Hindus of Pakistan who’ve managed to cross over to India. Penniless, unsure of the next meal but happy pure & simple.
What is long due for the earlier migrants, is work permits-as permanent solution to allow them live a life of dignity.
More #Hindu , more disciplined, well behaved & more sanskari than most here..
Only consolidated, constructive measures towards their resettlement as worthy citizens is the perfect answer.
There are 3 #PakHinduRefugees camps in Delhi, these are new migrants, some more arrived on 7th feb. 2 major camps in Jodhpur besides couple small ones, some in Gujrat, some in Jaipur, most forced to live in unhygienic filthy conditions & at the mercy of others, reason?

This Basant Panchami lets remember Veer Hakikat Rai, a teenager #Hindu from Sialkot, who preferred rather than conversion to Islam

His Muzlim classmates made fun of Hindu deities. In return he asked them how they would feel if anyone insulted Muhammad/Ayesha
As a result, he was taken to Lahore
was given an option to convert to Islam to save his life but he refused to leave his Hindu faith

So he was beheaded at a young age. He attained martyrdom at the age of 14, during the governorship of Zakariya Khan
Later on the character of Hakikat Rai was converted to Hakikat Singh to depict him a Sikh. The incident was also bit modified

BJP's failure in winning 'intellectual' debate became most apparent in #CAA. Reason lies with party. I worked in this space 4 too long to kno how long term agendas are set. Why intellectualism is equated to #Left leaning among a section in #WestBangal & #India. 1/n
I have been consistent in saying that #CAA is a major correction to the historic neglect to human tragedies from sustained flight of #Hindu & other minority from #EastPakistan/#Bangladesh. It's unfinished job of #Partition. 2/n
#Secularism will be threatened only when #India wil institutionally discriminate between two sets of citizens, as it happened in #Pakistan & #Bangladesh not by virtue of giving citizenship 2 d discriminated/persecuted in this 2 countries born out of discriminatory principles. 3/n

#antihindu Muslim rulers of India, beginning with Muhammad bin Qasim, who established dominance over the Sindh region in the eighth century AD. In so doing, however, Qasim most certainly caused a great deal of destruction, with clear evidence of massive forced conversions.
in the thirteenth century, Muhammad bin Bakhtiyar Khilji destroyed the ancient university of Nalanda, killing all the Buddhist monks and nuns, taking literally three months to burn every single book in the university’s library
#antihindu #IslamExposed
Similar examples of forced conversions and brutality can be found during the reigns of Mahmud Khalji of Malwa (1436–1469 AD), Ilyas Shah (1339–1379 AD), Babur (1483–1530 AD), and Sher Shah Suri (1486–1545 AD), all of whom destroyed temples, killed non-Muslims,forced conversion

I am Physicist & Statistics PhD so have ample experience of education and practise of research

#CAA_NRC_Protests shows #India needs urgent educational reform

Riots started in Assam. 84% of colleges in Assam are govt funded compared to 37% national average. Coincidence?

In the UK, undergraduates studying non-medical, science and engineering based subjects receive NO govt funding

In #India, all subjects are massively subsidised, including those inciting the anti-Hindu, pro-Muslim and Marxist ideologies causing #indiaagainstcaa_nrc

In #India, 22% of undergraduate students are publicly funded arts, humanities and social science students

Social science is most popular postgraduate subject and it accounts for 36% of Indian PhDs

Crazy that #India pays to make them become anti-national

A short #Thread to dispel doubts on #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019
Q) Does the Bill disallow citizenship for #Muslim migrants ?
A) NO , The bill merely mandates any #Muslim migrant to spend 11 yrs resident in #India before applying for citizenship.
Q) Does #CitizenAmendmentBill discriminate against #Muslims who are citizens of #India or remove any privilege of citizenship they hold?
A) No, the #CABBill makes no comment on the citizenship of existing #Muslim citizens.
Q) Why does the bill disallow #Muslim migrants from #Pakistan #Afghanistan & #Bangladesh from it's ambit.
A) The Bill is meant to provide a safety valve for minorities in adjoining nations who do not wish to live under a #Islamic regime. #Muslims are a majority in these nations.

What is special about being a #Hindu - by @fgautier26:

1) Believe in God ! - Aastik.

2) Don't believe in God ! - You're accepted as Nastik.

3) You want to worship idols - please go ahead. You are a Murti Pujak.

@DharmikSonal @uneditedIndian @rana_Rann_sa @sambhashan_in
4) You dont want to worship idols - no problem. You can focus on Nirguna Brahman.

5) You want to criticise something in our religion. Come forward. We are logical. Nyaya, Tarka etc. are core Hindu schools.

6) You want to accept beliefs as it is. Most welcome. Please go ahead.
7) You want to start your journey by reading Bhagvad Gita - Sure !

8) You want to start your journey by reading Upanishads - Go ahead

9) You want to start your journey by reading Purana - Be my guest.

Love yourself first!

The big problem today is that most people don’t love themselves. Society never teaches that it is possible to love ourselves. Understand that unless you love yourself, you cannot possibly love another person.

#love #selflove #nithyananda #Inspiration
Only when you lose yourself to yourself can you lose yourself to others. We are taught that we can only love even ourselves if we have a reason. If we perform well, we love ourselves.

#selflove #love #nithyananda #InspirationalQuotes #WeekendWisdom #SaturdayMotivation
If we fail, we hate ourselves. We apply the same logic to others. We love them only because of something, never without a cause or a reason.

Since the coming of #Islam to #Kashmir, since 1389 there have been 7 recorded exoduses of Kashmiri #Hindus and #Sikhs due to genocide and persecution at the hands of radical Islam.
The first exodus OF #Hindus from #Kashmir (AD 1389-1413) was under the Shah Mir Dynasty. Tourists may not notice that the iconic Dal Lake has a mass grave of Kashmiri Hindus known as "Bhatt Mazar" or "grave of Brahmins".
The second mass exodus (1506-1585) of Kashmiri #Hindus and #Buddhists was under Ali Shah Chak Dynasty, which made the persecution of Kashmiri Hindus a royal policy.

They boasted that they killed 900 Hindus daily for refusing to convert to Islam.

This is a story about the 'City of Temples' - Jammu, a Hindu majority area in an otherwise Musl!m majority Jammu & Kashmir.

A story about the historic Kali temple located in the historic Bahu Fort in Jammu.

A story of how #Ayodhya is connected to this temple.

'Bawe wali Mata', as we lovingly call her, is housed in a temple inside the historic 'Bahu Fort'. Bahu Fort was built by Raja Bahulochan around 3000 years ago.

The temple is believed to have been built during 8th century in 1822 after Maharaja Gulab Singh came to power (below)
It is believed that "Ma Kali" appeared in the dream of Pandit Jagat Ram Sharma and told him about her appearance in the form of a 'Pindi' (stone) buried on the hilltop. He found the stone and the temple was constructed at that spot. That "Pindi" is believed to be from #Ayodhya

#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...

...In my book, I take what I hope is an even-handed approach. For what it's worth, I've received approving messages from #Hindutva activists & #secularists alike. You can judge for yourself:…
