#SriLanka wasn't always an island. Most people today know Sri Lanka as a gorgeous island in Indian Ocean. However, most do know that it wasn't always an island. In 1480 a cyclone destroyed a strip of land, called Rama Setu, that connected it to #India (1/9 - read all)

THREAD: Vigils across America demanding action against #Pakistan for its inhuman treatment of Hindus & other minorities. The @chingariproject calls on all communities to join this movement to bring an end to abduction, forced conversion to Islam & rape of young girls in Pakistan.
Every day, in #Pakistan, 3 girls from the minority communities are kidnapped, forcibly converted and "married" off, often as 2nd and 3rd wives of Muslim men.
Many of these girls are as young as 12 and the men they are married off to, in their 30s and 40s. 2/n

She was also a prime worshipper of Maa Durga...
Some years ago, when her #son was of 13 yrs, he started showing his interest in #Politics and started being with #hinduextremists.

Thank you @dghconference for accepting that #Hindu & #Hindutva is a #Global_Phenomenon which you have been supressing for centuries and has rattled you to the core that you all were forced to take us down by conducting an online conference to demean us in every way instead of ++
++ looking inwards & introspect about what's so wrong with your ideologies. The strides we are making, that too in your country, is making you uncomfortable about your future. Wherever you see, you see Indians everywhere. Be it academia, economics, R&D, Top Corporate Honchos, ++
++ Medicine. You name it & you will find Indians at the forefront and at the same time making your country Great. Future is well infront of you where you see dominance of us Indians which is so worrying for you. It's becoming so difficult for you to see the phenomenonal rise of++

#DismantlingGlobalHindutva conference is a confluence of various forces with overlapping agendas.
1. Indian left whose electoral prospects look bleak who want to delegitimize current govt by creating academic consensus for branding them religious extremists who've "usurped power"
The idea is to project #Hindutva which they perceive as the core ideology of the party in govt, as some sort of terrorist ideology worse than the Taliban's and thus the current govt as illegitimate.

The "academic consensus" would then be used to lobby US Congress.
The expected outcome:
a. Push to declare RSS & any #Hindutva org as terror groups and lobby US Congress to ban them
b. Push for sanctions against India for violating religious freedom, thus hurting India economically, to create disaffection with current govt among the masses

@UW Seattle & @nyuniversity -as a young,proud,confident,strong #Hindu woman who was a postdoc & a PhD student respectively with you,it is saddening & heartbreaking that you're sponsoring a "Dismantling Global Hindutva" conference,without bothering to have voices who can speak for
the hundreds of years of suppression,oppression & persecution Hindus faced from foreign invaders on Indian soil,the ways Sanatana Dharma is still mocked,derided,belittled in India by many followers of Abrahamic faith,the countless cases of forced conversion that Hindu women & men
face,either through the surreptitious means of Love Jihad or openly & blatantly(as in Pakistan),the innumerable instances where Hindu temples are razed to the ground,vandalized & Hindu priests/worshippers attacked/murdered.All we Hindus are doing are speaking up against these

Hinduphobia is turning into Hindu hatred in the name of opposing Hindutva. More than 40 American Universities that get Indian students are promoting such hatred.
Tell These Universities: Stop Supporting the Anti-#Hindu Conference @HinduAmerican…
A conference titled 'Dismantling Global Hindutva', scheduled for 10-12 September, is essentially planning to mainstream Hindu hatred under pressure from evangelical and Islamist groups often masquerading under the label of South Asian students with most names remaining anonymous.
Opposing Hindutva without defining it clearly is no different from opposing Hinduism. Hatred for a so-called Hindu nationalist govt is now being used to mainstream Hindu hatred which can only result in ethnicide and violence against Hindus. We have seen this in Pak, BD & Kashmir

Throughout the history of Indo-Pak region, we had the intellectual dwarfs telling us what #Muslims should do. How dare Muslims to live under Muslim rule?

#ColonialFeminism has been in existence as long as #feminism, almost a joke now (but we have to care, to protect #Kashmir 1/n
..from this species).

Earlier, we exchanged our destiny with massacres & genocides for #Hindu rulers, or the #secularists.

The #fascist outburst in recent decades turned them as 'guardians of Muslims', framing it as '#Hindutva vs. #Secularists', imposing #Ambedkar as the.. 2/n
...solution with a holy excuse of #Dalit discourse (one more #Hindu).

But as the tide is rising, the two nation theory is back again with full force. And Insha Allah we will see many more #Islamic #republics in #Kashmir, #Maldives, #EastPakistan & elsewhere.

Judges have either ingrained fear of #Church money, muscle power or soft corner!
Sister Lucy Kalappura is running post to pillars for justice- for woman rights but she didn't get judicial patronage which non existent #Sabarimala woman entry issue got!
Judges sans Justice! +
Franciscan Clarist Congregation where Sister Lucy serving since age of 17 yrs has 750 NGOs under its umbrella, hundreds of it having #FCRA which we will strike soon!
That's the brute force which is forcing Indian judiciary to deny her police protection!
Kudos to her courage!+
Lawyers backtracking from taking up her fight legally withdrawing as Church money power flows in to force them to stay away from Sister Lucy!

We have been seeing for years that hundreds of Hindu Temples have been destroyed or are not being maintained regularly as the temple funds don't have enough money for even rituals and pooja.

Let's dig into the history of #Hindu temples, the government & the acts.

[Thread] Image
The Hindu Temples have been under the governments control since 1817.

After the protest by minority community and only the Hindu temples were kept under the government.

And this has continued since, even after the Independence. Image
These are some of the acts that each State has made for their respective Temples. Image

Since last few days there has been a concerted effort by a few Hindutva warriors to besmirch #RSS reputation with incomplete or false news no evidence. I do not know the purpose. But, it confuses people who don’t know enough or read enough. 1/n
Yesterday a news was shared claiming RSS disowning a book by Shri Guruji in 2006. I comprehensively proved that Guruji himself had disowned the book in 1950s with reference.2/n
Today a thread in twitter claims that certain people with #RSS connections are planning deletion or modification of #Hindu scriptures. In its 96 year history, there is NOT ONE evidence of RSS having ever asked for modification of any holy scripture. Even #VHP hasn’t done it. 3/n

Once there was a Formal Debate of Sringeri #Jagadguru Versus a #Missionary!
Following is an interesting debate that took place between the Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Shringeri Sharada piitam, Shrii Shrii Abhinava Vidyathiirtha Mahaswamigal (1931–1989) and a Christian
Missionary, sometime in the year 1973.
The missionary had come to Shringeri to debate with Acharya & establish the "superemacy" of Christianity over the #Hindu dharma. After exchanging a few words of formality,
Jagadguru: What is the purpose of your visit ?
Missionary: Swamiji, I intend to open a Christian church and an ashram just near you mutt.
Jagadguru: What's the objective or motivation for doing so?
Missionary: I want to preach Christianity and help distressed people seek peace and salvation

Vedic Math and its application

#Hinduism #Vedanta #Hindu #vedic
Recently I have been reading this book called Vedic Mathematics or sixteen simple mathematical formulae from the Vedas by late Jagadguru Sarikaracarya
Sri Bharati Krsna Tlrtha Maharaja ji
and learned some simple mathematical techniques to simplify calculations. I want to share this knowledge so here I am showing you the process of multiplication.
The Sutra: reads : (Nikhilam Navatascaramam Dasatah) which, literally translated, means;
“all from 9 and the last from 10”!

Suppose we have to multiply 9 by 7.
(i) We should take, as Base for our calculations, that power of 10 which is nearest to the numbers to be multiplied

1/2 The symbol of INFINITY —♾!!! This is #SUN’s diff positions throughout the year when clicked from same spot. Now let me explain it’s #HINDU origin. Remember the shloka from a famous 5000 yr old Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, which is recited at the completion of the Homam?
2/2 It’s called Poornahauti. 👇Its abt INFINITY. Our ancestors knew abt infinity bt to world it’s a recent discovery. Don’t forget Vishnu Bhagwan rests on a coiled snake,origin & ending of which v believe is not known. Concept of Ananta Shesha, which translates as endless-Shesha.
3/3 It is said that when Anantha/Adishesa uncoils, time moves forward and creation takes place; when he coils back, the universe ceases to exist. I still can’t smiling how SUN to is related to the sign of INFINITY. 😊Our ancestors knew so much. I wish I ws born 8000 yrs ago.

@PETA, An organisation that is supposed to be protector of Animals, actually kills the Animals in cold blood.
An organisation that claims to fight for Animal rights, it's ironic that the @peta which runs Animal shelters in the state of Virginia, US has known to have killed more than 90% of healthy Animals in its shelters.This is the Organization which gives us lecture on Animal rights.
There were the pets given by the veterinary doctors to PETA hoping they will find better homes. Upon receiving them, PETA certified that they are healthy & adoptable but they were found dead in dump yard.…

Most Hindus are still under the impression that #Sufism is a good form of Islam. They are so greatly mistaken. Sufis came to India either accompanying the invading armies of Islamic marauders or followed in the wake of the sweeping conquests made by the soldiers of #Islam..(1/19)
Sufi masters were silent spectators to the murderous mayhem & reckless plunder of temples and cities by the ruthless armies of Islamic Invaders. They just used the unsuspecting Hindus' inherent love for spiritualism to convert them to Islam en-masse..(2/19)
and this is true for all 4 major #Sufi "saints" (1) Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti of Ajmer Sharif and (2) Khawaja Qutubuddin who both came along with Mohd Ghori, (3) Sheikh Faridudin and (4) Sheikh Nizamuddin Auliya of Dargah Hazrat Nizamuddin. ...(3/19)

#Vedic texts suggest that #Hindus originally did not worship idols and build #temples, and it is quite likely that both Hindus and #Buddhists got the idea from the #Greeks.
#India accounted for 33% of the #World economy in AD 1.
#China's share was 26% of World GDP.
India was by far the World's economic superpower at that time.
#Indians sold textiles, spices and demanded precious metals in payment.
Not a year passed in which #India did not take 50 million sesterces away from #Rome.
