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🕉️

This is ALARMING, EMERGENCY & HUGE WARNING to Hindus.

In Rakshana TV(a Christian Telugu channel); they're saying that Real Christians % in Andhra is 35%(not 2% as per census) & they show they're Hindu in ration card, official documents to not lose benefits.

@noconversion

(1/n)
While Andhra Hindus are voting for caste parties & engulfed in casteism and not much into #Hindutva:


On other side; Christian
Evangelists & #JoshuaProject conversions harvested Andhra.

Our #AndhraPradesh is 35% Christian now(not 2% as per census).

(2/n)
Radical Christian evangelists usually don't use violence openly like Islamic Jihadis but they do lots of Anti-Hindu propaganda in conversions.
Thus they're invisible to society & are more dangerous to Hindus.

Here are combined state of Andhra Pradesh stats in 2011 census.

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.

I have received some requests to provide evidence for links between #Hindutva and #Nazism in the early 20th century.

Let me be clear that this is not my original research, and it is not an innovative argument.

Lots of scholars have made this point. A few citations:
Christophe Jaffrelot talks about this in his book, The Hindu Nationalist Movement in India. See the sections "German sources of Golwalkar's ideology" and "A Special Kind of Racism." Golwalkar was the second head of the RSS, a paramilitary organization that advocates Hindutva.
"paramilitary" is not my term, by the way. I am borrowing that from other scholars, including Jaffrelot.

Christophe Jaffrelot is one of the leading scholarly authorities on Hindu nationalism. He's written about the Nazi links in other publications also.

Georgetown invited a leader in the ABVP - a hate group that uses violence to silence students and professors, particularly members of minorities - to speak.

Read that sentence again. It is astonishing for a university (a Jesuit one at that) to do this. thehoya.com/students-conde…
Georgetown never publicized the event. So the university appears to have had some sense, from the get-go, that it was problematic to invite an affiliate of a paramilitary organization with a long history of anti-Muslim and anti-Christian violence to educate students.
It seems to me that Georgetown owes their students a fuller discussion about how this happened in the first place and how they're going to prevent it from happening again. Let's watch to see how this story of Hindutva at Georgetown plays out... #Hindutva #academia

On #ReligiousIntolerance and #violence:
A man was Lynched by a Mob in the Indian state of Jharkhand recently. His name was Ansari, that gave it way to his Hindu tormentors that he was muslim. They demanded that he chant "Jai Shree Ram!" independent.co.uk/voices/jai-shr…
Egregious examples of intolerance towards minority religions, mainly by Hindu mobs, underline the stark criticisms by the US Commission on International Religious Freedom of official apathy in the face of growing religious extremism in India.

1/ The US Commission on International Religious Freedom (#USCIRF)is a federal Govt commission created by the International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA) of 1998. Commissioners are appointed by the President and the leaders of both political parties in the Senate and the House.
2/ It is mandated by the Act to produce an Annual Report on the State of Religious Freedom around the world. It names the most egregious violator countries as 'Countries of Particular Concern' (#CPC). The 2019 Report does not look good for #India, 5 years after a @BJP4India Govt.
3/ India is not a CPC-a Country of Particular Concern. It is a tier-2 country. Other than Cuba and Laos, it is the only non-Muslim-majority country in the list of tier-2 countries (Afghanistan, Malaysia, Iraq, Indonesia, Tajikstan, Bahrein, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Turkey)

So much on #Godse, rightly so.
Now my simple questions -
1. No postmortem in Gandhi ji. Why?
2. No investigation of 4th bullet. Why?
3. Madanlal Pahwa confessed to plot to kill Gandhi ji 7-10 days earlier when he hurled crude bomb. Why no security to Gandhi ji?
-Who exploited Gandhi ji Assassin and benefitted from it? Nehru & Congress. Milking it even today.
-Who suffered most? #RSS, #Savarkar, cause of #Hindutva.
- Worse -all of this even after police, courts, enquiry commission gave clean chit to RSS,Savarkar
#Irony died 1000 deaths
Why was Gandhi ji not taken to hospital but put in a room to bleed to death?

Because @TulsiGabbard has received significant financial support from The Hindu Right and so is beholden to their interests, including anti-Muslim & anti-Christian agendas.

Also, Obama isn't running for office. Gabbbard is, and her Hindu nationalist sympathies are unacceptable.
For Americans unfamiliar with Hindu nationalism, I invite you to read this thread that clarifies the nature and origin of this dangerous ideology: #Hindutva #HinduNationalism
For liberals in particular thinking about supporting Gabbard, I encourage you to look hard at her ties to India's extreme right wing. Look into the 2002 pogrom in Gujarat, overseen by Modi and for which he was banned from the United States, for more than a decade.

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:

Alright folks, a little primer on Hindutva or the Hindu Right Wing, to which presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard has ties. This is meant for Americans without much, if any, prior knowledge of India. #Hindutva #TulsiGabbard THREAD
Hindutva & Hinduism are two separate things, in two separate categories. Hinduism is a religion. Hindutva is a political ideology. They are as far apart as Christianity vs. white supremacy. I've no beef with Hinduism. But basic justice & equality are incompatible with Hindutva.
What is Hindutva? In brief, it is the notion that India ought to be land for Hindus, by Hindus. It condemns other Indians to being second-class citizens and accepting increasing Hindutva-fueled violence against minorities in the form of lynchings, morality enforcing mobs, etc.

#Tathya
#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.

I am writing a thread for supporters PM Narendra Modi .
I am a professional , a Doctor , with no intention to join active politics but I take interest in politics to support the efforts of PM Narendra Modi. It doesn't make me supporter of any political party including Bjp! 1/n
After yesterday's defeat of my Prime minister's party Bjp in 3 Assembly Elections, I am too feeling low but in view of larger battle of 2019 for my PM , I am seeing silver lining in the cloud vis a vis yesterday's mandate that I would like to share in this thread . 2/n
One cannot ignore the fact that Bjp had incumbent Governments for last 15 years in Madhya Pradesh and Chhatisgarh & for last 5 yrs in Rajasthan with same term for incumbent CMs.Anti incumbency was natural in these states & especially in Rajasthan, people were unhappy with CM.3/n

#Rajasthan textbook explicitly lists “demerits of democracy,” “democracy teaches a person to be selfish, cunning& illusive, “democracies do not produce economic development”,& they are particularly weak “in times of crisis.” #BJP_ভাগাও_দেশ_বাঁচাও #Hindutva kractivist.org/indias-rewritt…
The new textbooks promote the BJP’s political program and ideology.
History is twisted to promote Hindu supremacy&islamophobia. Maharana pratap won battle of haldighati, India won sino india conflict, Nazis were good etc etc #BJP_ভাগাও_দেশ_বাঁচাও #HinduRashtra
these textbooks are essentially political manifestos.
#Rajasthan’s 7th-grade book directs students to “prepare a chart of the advertisements published by the Govt abt its different schemes&with the help of your teacher discuss the benefits of these schemes.”

#Thread on #Hindu #Hinduism & #Hindutva. I saw this as an imprudent need & hence the thread as below cc @vivekagnihotri @RatanSharda55 @Sanjay_Dixit @_NAN_DINI @GitaSKapoor @sankrant @DikshitSmita @Shubhrastha 👇🏼Pic: Trimurti Sadashiva sculpture on Gharapuri Island
2/n #Hinduism is a reduced nomenclature given to the Sanatana Dharma by British in 1830s. The word Hinduism is formed by adding suffix ISM to Hindu.

ISM is defined as a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.
3/n It must be understood that Hindu term always had geo-cultural meaning covering for people residing amid Sindhu River, Himalayas & Indu Sagar. Then in this case adding suffix ISM is nothing but mocking English Language. Eg, u can’t add Ism to Japanese and call Japaneism.

Zainul Ansari, an 80 yr old non hindu, hacked to death, then burned in public by the #hindutvaterrorists.
Thread on that and on the role of Sitamadi's SP Vikas Burman:
19/20 October, 2018. Sitamani, Bihar.
The police laid out all routes for the procession of Durga Pooja. But it got hacked by the #Hindutva who forcefully took it through Madhuvan, a muslim dominated area.
After the 1992 riots, few areas of Sitamani are considered extremely sensitive, and hence, taking religious processions through them is not allowed by the police. Madhuvan is one of those areas. Still, the #hindutvaterrorists forced their way in.

Anytime you ever want to see the "tolerant" nature of the #VHP's World Hindu Congress look at the alarming way they talk about Americans who are concerned about the normalization of #Hindu Fascism. " #StopHinduFascism #WHC2018 #WHC2018CHICAGO
Ultraleftists", "Islamists", and "Evangelists" so many slurs in one sentence. From Islamophobia, Redbaiting, to attacking Christians this is the #VHP showing its true colors.#StopHinduFascism #WHC2018 #WHC2018CHICAGO
This is why these people are so dangerous. Behind their shiny marketing campaign is frightening bigotry & worse. Only when #DalitBahujans who are resisting their campaigns of violence speak up do they suddenly lose their "safe space." #StopHinduFascism #WHC2018 #WHC2018CHICAGO

"Yet, if the 'rewriting of Indian history' was lurching ahead on the Hindutva fringe of academia, mainstream science was steadily advancing in quite another direction."

must confess though; I do like the idea of the North Pole being in India.
