Meta-Post on the Calamitous Consequences of #PopulationControlLaw if Implemented in India: #Thread

GOI & many Indians are mistaken to think that #PopulationControlBill's the magic-wand to solve demographic snag, #ClimateChange & #poverty by reduced #population footprint.

1. The #PopulationRegulationBill:

First the #PopulationControlAct itself. It was introduced in Rajya Sabha in July 2019 with "2-child policy per couple." The Bill's presented with the associated rewards for adherence & also penalties for violation.

2. The Govt's locus-standi on #PopulationControl:

The GOI has already built a narrative regarding #PopulationControlAct. Popular figures speak of it as the need of the hour. Many back it, articles have been written & a perception's created leading to implementation of the Bill.

#Islam, #Quran, other Islamic holy texts, prophet and other Islamic figures, and social media posts.
Let me start by stating certain facts.
1. Islam is a world religion, is in the public domain and its doctrines are published in the public domain.
2. The Quran is similarly 1/n
available in the public domain. It is propagated as the fount of all wisdom by certain people.
3. The prophet is held up as the ideal human being by some people, as an important world figure by others.
4. #Islamic doctrines, #Quran are published on social media.2/n
Nothing wrong so far. However, there is nothing right about the things that happen next.

Just after signing an open letter alleging online harassment Mehmal Sarfraz went OnAir with Indian media describing the so called curbs on freedom of expression in Pakistan.

This at a time, when world is critical of Indian #hindu supremacist govt’s fascistic policies of gagging, arresting & prosecuting journalists & free speech activists in India.

It served a purpose of providing Indian media outlets another chance of anti-Pakistan propaganda.

This step by Mehmal Sarfraz also provided a justification for Indian media to cleverly equate India’s media blackout of Kashmir, curbs on free speech of Indian #Muslims & Indian civil society, by blaming Pakistan for engaging in similar behavior.

The power of #Hindu unity

This may seem like another Hindu temple but the story behind it deserves to be told. During the Portuguese rule in Goa, the temple here was destroyed by the invaders.

Few years later, an elderly man felt the presence of Datta Bhagwan at the site.. ImageImage
He expressed his desire to rebuild the temple along with his family & villagers but unfortunately lost his life before that could happen.

For a few yrs, this place was illegally occupied by |slamists who turned it into Mini Pakistan, Hindus feared to even venture into this area.
In 2008, a group of Hindu activists fought the Jih@dis who had plans of converting the site into a Kabrstaan and freed the site from their clutches and performed Murti Sthapana & Pooja of Swami Samarth in a single night. Image

It's great to see folx celebrating #KamalaHarris as an #interfaith icon. But, I wonder if we're going to have any serious conversations about how her story represents the way #ChristianSupremacy makes it so common for folx to embrace Christianity over other religions. 1/
#KamalaHarris was raised primarily with her #Hindu mother, but that she now identifies as #Christian. She also went to a #Baptist church as a child, along with friends in her neighborhood. Presumably (like most places), church attendance was normalized, Hindu temples weren't. 2/
So, despite the strong #Hindu influence at home, her #Christian identity became central. She doesn't even identify as both, which is totally possible if your religions aren't exclusivist. eg: I identify with 2 religions (both non-Christian) because of my interfaith upbringing. 3/

#thread on article by #SoumyaDeb on @IndiaFactsOrg

He tried to defend well the words exonym #Hindu and oxymoron #Hinduism.

He cited historians #romilathapar @D_N_Jha #RobertEricFrykenberg


@Aloft_Incumbent once stated that the WORD '#Hindu' didn;t exist. To which I disagree.

Should she disagree with facts I provide, please reply.

Magathenese a #Greek traveller long back noted India as '#Indus' ~400 BCE.

@Sanjay_Dixit @mamatarsingh

India was known as country bounded by INDUS river, Himalaya & sea from 3 side.

Fed up of this bullshit "Make hospital, in place of Ram Temple in Ayodhya".

Many of such hypocrites called the Bhoomipoojan death of secularism in India, derogating the decision given by a constitutional body, Supreme court & these hypocrites outcry constitution 24*7.
Let's talk about some more facts & logics(Although these aspects don't matter to them).
The #RamMandirAyodhya is going to be built on donations from believers in Sri Ram.
Central Govt has donated just ₹1 in that fund and UP state Govt has not donated any money yet.
The owner of the land is #SriRam, which would be managed by @SriRamJanmBhumi Teerth kshetra trust.

JANMASTHAMI 2020 - Smarth & Vaishnav

Generally, many of us might be confused due to 2-day celebration of Shree Krishna Janmashtami. This confusion arouses due to 2 different schools of faith known as #Smartha and #Vaishnava. The first Janmashtami date is for Smartha Image
sampradaya and other is for #Vaishnav sampradaya.

The smartha sampradayat is a liberal or nonsectarian tradition or denomination of the Vedic #Hindu religion, which accepts all the major Hindu deities as forms of the one Brahman. Howerver, Vaishnavism revere Vishnu or
Shree Krishna as supreme being. There are other schools of though also such as #Shaivism which regard God Shiva as supreme God. Shri Adi #Shankaracharya nurtured the Smartha Sampradaya. He was a believer of pure form of Vedic thought which prophesized that the Hindu trinity

Hinduism or Hindutva as we know today is a term given to Sanatan 'Eternal' philosophy (Vedic) the only known, oldest, surviving religion or faith (pick as may please u) to date

@MJKSaddozai let me know if you find evidence contrary in this #Thread

The estimation of vedic (one who follows Vedas) philosophy evolution is around ~52kya with known astronomical records. I know vedas will render all the history and science books OLD as its verses are decoded and solved scientifically

Henna and the bride - Cultural and religious significance
It is not easy to trace back the origin of henna usage but it can be safely said that henna is being used for more than five thousand years for both healing and cosmetic purposes. Ancient civilizations were Image
known to use henna for various purposes, including its healing capacities, especially for brides.

Some historians argue that henna was brought into India by Mughals in the 12th century, but deities on 4th-5th century CE #Ajantacave murals have henna decoration. The henna
decoration is clearly illustrated on many more very old murals in southern India and Sri Lanka.

Coming on to more about henna, the term #Mehendi has its root in Sanskrit word ‘Mendhika’. A plant used to create the temporary colouring and it is mentioned in our Vedas that

--The Tryambaka Offerings, Pt 3 (Final) --

In past 2 threads, I covered the Tryambaka Ishti of Sakamedha, explaining exactly what “sister of Rudra” meant, and the Mṛtasanjīvanī mantra here. Links to previous threads:……

Naturally, Qs may arise. Mṛtasanjīvanī mantra is dedicated to Shiva by some scholars. How can one claim it denotes the mind? Ans - If you read previous threads, it is clear that context of tryambakaṃ yajāmahe… is meditation on the mind+

#Hinduism #Vedic #Sanatani #Hindus
A mantra is identified as belonging to a devata if it does not change in other occurences. As eg, rudra gāyatri has “tanno rudraḥ pracodayāt” that remains unchanged while occuring elsewhere with minor changes in preceding words – so, it denotes rudra devata only+
