@lobonkha 1/n Excellent Thread @lobonkha ,with further inputs,from @From_Himalaya
Just have a few queries/concern & thought of raising them here,hope collectively,we can find some answers.
The atrocities against Hindus,genocide,is well documented, however,not wide reached,as I see,as for
@lobonkha @From_Himalaya many,these gory barbaric details, would be unknown,so thanks for bringing them out.
1.)Why haven't these details & more such so,not reached to every Hindu,who could read,so far. What's #Viraat_Hindu_NationaList party doing to include them in History text books?
2)What happened to
@lobonkha @From_Himalaya those Jihadis,who were behind such acts & their descendants. Any fight for justice for Hindus massacred,so far?
3.)Why hasn't #Kaandi been charged for genocide enablement against Hindus,
for #Crimes_Against_Humanity?
Rather #BJP doing #Kaandi_Bhajan?
Many suggested,such & other

I am a Proud Hindu🕉️ from South India.

#Bhogi, #Pongal, #Kanuma #Ugadi/#Yugadi, #Puthandhu, #Vishu, #Bonalu, #Onam, #Bathukamma, #Atlatadde/#Atlataddi, #KarthigaiDeepam etc are Hindu🕉️ festivals & they're based on our Hindu calenders only.

DO NOT "Secularize" them bcoz

(1/n)
you Le-Lis want to further your North-South divide by tying us to some fake regional pride.

Non-Hindus can celebrate Hindu🕉️ festivals in our way if they want but don't try to appropriate & disrespect our Hindu festivals-traditions.

DO NOT take our tolerance for granted.

(2/n)
To stop @narendramodi, #Hindutva; many Anti-Hindu groups are destroying, demeaning South's Hindu culture.

E.g. Xtian missionaries are appropriating #Bathukamma🕉️ festival


While Islamist @asadowaisi mocking our #Bathukamma🕉️

2 days later on Oct-13 its a full moon. #SharadPoornima 🌓 On this day #Hindus r supposed to fast n stay awake at night to get d “blessings” of dark matter in d universe. Then 14 days later v’ll celebrate #Diwali as moon wld hv completed its phase—AMAWASYA/new moon. 1/n
2/n #Hinduism doesnt associate darkness with evils. Its a western concept! This is y we celebrate #Diwali which falls on AMAWASYA (new moon). It is believed that every new moon is the beginning of a new manifestation cycle. Sharad poornima is associated with health n wealth.
3/n So on this #SharadPoornima manifest good health for urself. Yeah u will hv to fast too, so that ur body detoxifies itself n prepares for the winter. 😃 Sharad poornima is associated with Laxmi Devi. Interestingly, so is #Diwali.

THREAD:

Divya Dwivedi (@Aloft_Incumbent, a deracinated HINO & Le-Li Hinduphobe) is saying that #Hinduism/Sanatana Hindu Dharma was "invented" in 20th century?
SHe MUST APOLOGIZE.

I am OBC Telugu & a Proud 🕉️ Hindu like my ancestors & I am aware of my ancient 🕉️ heritage.

(1/n)
You're wrong on many levels "deracinated"@Aloft_Incumbent:

POINT 1:

You're spewing hateful-colonial construct also used by Radical Christian missionaries, Hinduphobic Left-DMK to deride us Hindus🕉️ by saying that we don't have any identity, existence before 20th Century.

(2/n)
Tell us @Aloft_Incumbent, What is our religious or dharmic identity before 20th century?

Who were our Kings? like #SriKrishnadevaraya, #Shivaji etc.

Which are our New year festivals?like #GudiPadwa, #Ugadi, #Vaisakhi, #Puthandu, #Vishu etc based on 🕉️ Dharmic calender.

A #thread on the rising encroachment of the #ChristoIslam Indian Judiciary on Hindu traditions in the name of #reform.

I'll be examining the judgement given by the Tripura High Court on animal sacrifice for Maa Tripurasundari, shared by @LiveLawIndia livelaw.in/top-stories/tr…
@LiveLawIndia Let's examine who were defending the religious practice.

Lo! IAS officers, or government officials! Not a single priest/Shakta practitioner was called in to defend.

This was rigged from the start.
#SaveOurTripurasundari #FreeOurTemples
@LiveLawIndia @ReclaimTemples @lobonkha @Aabhas24 @Swamijitweets Please read the part said "As a corollary...."

It says, "..not being an essential part of religion.."
Only when the #ChristoIslam Indian Judiciary confuses an umbrella religion consisting of thousands of practices with monotheistic ones, you'll see this. #SaveOurTripurasundari

Someone asked me: Why do I care how old Hinduism is?

I'm so glad you asked. This is relevant to my research... short #THREAD #Hinduism
I work primarily on premodern India, pre-18th century. I work, among other things, on Hindu-Muslim interactions... Or do I? 16th-century "Hindus" didn't call themselves "Hindus" usually. So should I? That depends, in part, on whether they were part of coherent, larger tradition.
I also read premodern sources that talk about "Hindus" but the meaning is different.

Most commonly, I'm reading a Persian text and they mean "Indian" by the word "Hindu." To catch this and not misunderstand, I need to be thinking about the history of the term "Hindu".

Someone asked me today: How can you talk about Hinduism when you're not Hindu?

I love talking about authority to comment on religion, insider / outsider issues, so let's do this. (for my original thread on Hinduism: ) #THREAD #Hinduism #religion
So, should you listen to anything I, a non-Hindu, says about Hinduism?

Well, it kinda depends on what you want to know and what you consider to be relevant markers of authority.
If you're looking for spiritual guidance, and you want that to come from a Hindu, then I'm not your person.

Someone asked me: How old is Hinduism?

This is a common question. You might think it would be straightforward, the age of a religion, but you'd be wrong. The answer really depends on definitions and what you want to know. #Hinduism #THREAD
If you want to know: How long have people been using the word "Hinduism"? The answer is: With spelling variants, a few hundred years, max. It's a Western idea.
If you want to loosen up on precise vocabulary and ask: How long have people been using the world "Hindu"? The answer is: A thousand years, maybe a tad more. It's a Perso-Arabic invention. Also, the Perso-Arabic "Hindu" sometimes meant Indian, more geographic than religious.

Orthodoxy made #Hindu Samaj non-inclusive and created deep faultlines for others to exploit. For orthodoxy, the 'mlechchh' is as much a non-Hindu as a Scheduled Caste person. #Orthodoxy never strengthens society or faith. Reject orthodoxy like Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar did. 1/n
Laughable that you can't accept food delivered by a non-Hindu because it is #Shravan. Does the food come certified that it has been cooked and packed by Hindus? A true #orthodox would cook his food, wash his utensils, carry his water. You are not even true to orthodoxy. 2/n
History tells us orthodoxy has inflicted incalculable harm to #Hinduism and #Hindu Samaj. Orthodoxy defended sati, child marriage, putrid casteism, purdah. #Orthodoxy opposed Hindu Code, women's education, equal rights, temple entry. Examples abound. 3/n

@Aabhas24 This Myth of thousand year old Dalits n Lower Castes Oppression by upper castes has to be debunked now.This is a colonial myth now propagated by Marxists.The word “caste” carries poisonous history. The word “caste” is derived from the Portuguese “casta” — meaning lineage, breed,

Let us see what #Hinduism n #Hindus gave to the world.

A #Thread about #Hindus contribution to form this world better.

Hindu's contribution in any subject is more than any other religion in this world.

SHARE AND BE PROUD.
1)Let's talk about #Mathematics 1st
i)"0" :- one of the most important inventions of all time. Aryabhata invited the "0" 1st.The concept of zero and its integration into the place-value system also enabled one to write numbers, no matter how large, by using only ten symbols.
2)ii) Decimal System:- Hindus gave Decimal system. This system made the uses of arithmetic in practical inventions much faster and easier.

iii)Numerical Notation:-
As early as 500 BCE, had devised a system of different symbols for every number from one to nine.

1/n #SadarPranam to “Ishwara”within u @acjoshi ji. I saw ur recent exchange with @madhukishwar & @TarekFatah .I’m sorry to say but arguments from u abt Hinduism,Bhagwad Gita & Hindutva seemed highly flawed + mediocre. I explain in string below. Don’t respond until n/n .
2/n Let’s first begin with, you disagreeing with what Madhu ma’am stated. She said: In this century of Lord Vishnu has come in avatar of Tarek Fateh. & then Ashish sir, u come with baseless argument (underlined in SS). Let me explain how you are wrong here. Read below:
3/n The shloka of context is:
यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भव- ति भारत ।

अभ्युत्थान- मधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम्- ॥४-७॥

परित्राणाय- साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम्- ।

धर्मसंस्था- पनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे ॥४-८॥

#Thread Bashing this aunties lies about Rig Veda.

Does offering of beef was common in Rig Veda times ?

Please RT this mass.
@squintneon
1) Her 1st lie, Tribals and Bengals of Tripura doesnt eat Beef.

EVEN TRIBALS DONT EAT BEEF.

Even Muslims of Tripura eat pork.
Pork is a stable meat after chicken here

Added two SS of swiggy.
When I mentioned Beef they suggested me veg dish. 🤣
2)Commie news papers claims that During Rig veda people used to offer Beef !!

This is completely false. There is no mention or no proof of their claims.

Killing cows doesnt even mention in the chronicles of ancient travellers too.

📌 #Thread about dressing of Ancient India. #Hinduism

No sir. They didnt even wore bikinis that time. Actually India and Hinduism started many years before birth of "Mother Marry" herself 😌🚩

That time Women used to stay in bare chest.
2) I had to delete my 2nd post bcz ppl told me that sita used 2 wear clothes.I did my best 2 knw abt the real facts.
In 1 verse Ravana describd hr a breast full of jewels.
In other its written she was wearing silk clothes maybeshe was wearing clothes in lower part of her body.
(3/n) In many art of vedic era and ancient hindu temple. We can clearly see the statues of Indian goddess in bare chest with jewellery covering their breast.

#Thread Many young peeps have confusion about KUMARI PUJA lets clear their fact. #Hindu #History #Hinduism

(1/n) In Bengal Kumari pooja was started by Swami Vivekananda 1 year after starting Ram Krishna Mission.
Goddess Durga is worship in various form during her 3 day stay.
2/n) Here we worship as her in "Kumari" form.

The actual word "Kumari" is a sanskrit word, hindi word of "Kumari" is कुँआरी which means अविवाहिताकन्या ।" {U can Google 😌}
When the word itself suggest Kumari, here we can't worship a married/un-virgin girl.
#RamNavami
(3/n) •A girl aged between 1 to 16 year, symbolizing the Kumari form of Devi **NO MENTION OF NON MENSTRUAL GIRL**

[Generally girls get their 1st period in the age of 9-11]

• The Kumari form of the Goddess was empathised as the most dynamic form of her ALL forms.

Religious #Thread.

(1/n) I noticed many time, some news papers and some Muslim scholar like Zakir Nayak claim that #Hinduism allows us to kill Cow.
But they never tell about the specific verse and Book.
(2/n) Those newspapers Article mislead many young people.
And many Muslim argue with us with those Articles without reading actual vedas.

Its absolutely not their false. They are learning what Medias are showing.

#Hinduism #NoBeef
(3.1) Claim made by lefties: Rigveda 10/85/13 ,“On the occasion of a girl’s marriage oxen and cows are slaughtered.”
Fact: The mantra states tht in winter, the rays of sun get weak n then get strong again in spring. The word used fr sun-rays in ‘Go’ which also means cow.

द्विधाकृत्वात्मनो देहमर्धेन पुरुषोभवत्
अर्घेन नारी तस्यां स विराजमसृजत्प्रभु। - #Manusmriti

“In the beginning, the world was equally split into two and from one part man was created, while from the other a woman.”
Note The EQUAL split. #Hinduism #InternationalWomensDay
No. Not created from a man because he was bored and lonely. Woman isn’t a man’s entertainment.
परपत्नी तु या स्त्री स्यादसंबन्धा च योनित:
तां ब्रूयाद्भवतीत्येव सुभगे भगिनीति च।
A woman who isn’t your wife and who isn’t related by birth should be addressed respectfully as “Blessed” “thou” or “Sister” respectfully. - #Manusmriti #WomensDay

Every @SriNithyananda devotee will forever remember this day from nine years ago. We watched our guru, the love of our life, get abused, tortured, and his sannyasinis were put through hell in the hands of a murderous mob.
Read this for more details. Full post here: facebook.com/ParamahamsaNit…
The media happily supported and egged on this mob fury, and "jokes" were freely circulated. All those devotees who knew about Swamiji's innocence were put through hell - ashramites were raped, multiple murder attempts were made.
