1. Next 21 tweets on #Sikh tradition's relationship with different languages & scripts in Indic core & extended MidEast/Mongol/Tibet/E.Asian family.

What were the cultural undercurrents of the first Sikh movement towards Indicization?

What derailed this?

What about the future?
2. #Sikh Guru Angad ji pioneered the re-introduction of Indic script in Punjab. Rolled back imposition of modified-Arabic script.

#Gurmukhi is derived from Sharada script of #Kashmiri Hindus. Related to far flung Tocharian script. Is only surviving member of that script-family.
3. #Sindhis, Hindus from #NWFP & Hinglaaj (present-day #Balochistan), + today's #Kashmiri Hindus' Indic scripts have lost currency. Most now use modified-Arabic script.

These groups should consider adopting #Gurmukhi as script for their languages as they reclaim their identity.

Those who support Homosexuality are asking Muslims to prove 'Scientifically' & 'Logically' why Homosexuality is wrong.
Many Muslims are also sharing scientific research articles to support their stand.
This #thread deals with complex problem with this approach by both sides

1/n
On issues like Homosexuality, there is diffrence of opinion among people which is a normal thing & it doesn't constitutes 'Phobia'. Bcoz if our opinion on sexuality makes us Homophobic, ur opinion makes u Islamophobic.
So, be humble in your approach & don't label others

2/n
Asking Muslims to prove their point on Scientific ground is stupidity bcoz Muslim doesn't consider it sin because science says so but bcoz of Islamic teachings.

Religion & Science r 2 different things & have different functions. Religion doesn't need validation from Science

I am reading Ahmed El Shamsy’s recent book on the impact of #printing on modern discourses on #Islamic scholarship. Like his previous book, it is extremely readable and insightful. I will post some questions and intriguing passages from the chapters that interest me most./1
In the introduction, the author tells us that he will cover the 19th c. which saw the marginalisation of the classical Islamic work, the adoption of printing & rebirth of the classical heritage. Muslim reformers reasserted the classical tradition to undermine the postclassical./2
I think ch. 1 will be the most interesting for me: it names two key factors in the marginalisation of the classical works: "the dramatic decline of traditional libraries and the voracious appetites and deep pockets of European collectors of Arabic books."(p.6)/3

My first encounter with the #Persian #Wittgenstein (1889-1951) in Iran was buying a copy of a translation of #PhilosophicalInvestigations at the Tehran book fair in 1999 - a thread on Wittgenstein in Iran 1/

Standard accounts of Wittgenstein do not tend to look at his reception beyond the English speaking context - but for that there are two two excellent introductions which partly problematise the 'early' vs 'late' and SEP entry plato.stanford.edu/entries/wittge… 3/

In the @NYTimes piece against me they claim "that I "frequently appeared on #FoxNews to discuss the dangers of Islamic terrorism & Shariah law." Not accurate. I don't use the term "Islamic terrorism" but "Jihadism." A rebuttal @ #PittsburghPostGazette here
markets.post-gazette.com/postgazette/ne…
I don't use the term "#Islamic" but rather the word "#Islamist." I carefully select my words based on academic research. I make sure it represents the meaning in English and #Arabic. The @NYTimes writers put words I haven't used (neither in my books or in the media) in my mouth.
Either because their assigned writers and "investigative journalists" are not trained in comparative politics, which is a problem for the once "prominent" #NYT or because they copy this narrative from the #MuslimBrotherhood and Iran playbooks against me, which by far, is worse.

Patronage of Art, Culture & Religion under Rajputs

#Rajput Rulers of Jaislamer were Hindus but they were great patrons of Hinduism & Jainism.
A wonderful example of temple architecture is found in the Rajput Period in #Jaisalmer.
The great jain temples of Chintamani Pārsvanataha,Rishabhadeva,Šāntinātha,Sambhavanatha and Mahāvīra in the fort of Jaisalmer constructed one after another between the 12th -15th centuries in the reign of #Rajput Rulers were excellent. ImageImage
The temple of Bhagvan Parshvnatha(23rd tirthankar) which was built in the twelfth century is the oldest and still in great condition. It was repaired from time to time.

The present temple is built in the reign of Maharawal Jai Singh Bhati in 1416 . Image

A passion piece for me, tracing the origins of #Pakistan #Turkiye brotherhood.

Nowadays, when public affinity for #Turkish TvShow #ErtugrulGhazi
is the rage in #Pakistan.

I’ve attempted to trace the historical events that helped develop these bonds.

brecorder.com/2020/05/19/595…
Be it #Turkish support to #Pakistan when it comes to the Kashmir dispute or other international issues, #Pakistanis are well aware of the fact that, #Turkey goes out of its way to stand by #Pakistan.

/2
But to understand this bond of brotherhood, and how it developed over a period of a 100 years we need to take a deeper look at the instances in our own history, when #Pakistanis as a people went out of our way to stand by the #Turks.

This is tutorial for all Hindus on how to debunk #Islamic lies about Kashmir/#Kashmirihindu genocide:
1) If they quote GOI numbers of Kashmiri Hindu deaths during 1990, ask for GOI numbers for Kashmiri Muslim deaths. Don't let them compare two different sources to fool you.
2) If they talk about fabricated lies about Kashmiri Muslim death numbers in 1947, tell them about the Hindu and Sikh massacre by Pakistani Army in 1947.

3) Remind them, that the Hindus are a miniscule Minority in Kashmir (Kashmir is easily 90% Muslim majority.
4) If they still persist, remind them that Kashmir used to be a Hindu Majority area some 700 years ago and there have been atleast 7 exoduses and genocides of Hindus in Kashmir perpetrated by Musl!m majority in past 700 years.
5) Don't let them deny my Genocide.

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.

ETHNIC CLEANSING & CULTURAL GENOCIDE IN #KASHMIR

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.
2/n
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".
3/n
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.

While demanding #humanitarian aid from across the #globe, the #Palestinian Authority spent $2.1 billion to fund #Islamic #terrorism between 2011 and 2018.
Billions of #dollars in foreign aid have been unaccounted for – money that was supposed to go to #Palestinian citizens under the oppressive and #militant #jihadist government run by President Mahmoud Abbas and the #Islamic #terrorist group #Hamas
money that supposedly went to programs that haven’t existed for many years.

The plan to invade the Riyasat of #JammuAndKashmir wasn't born in #Lahore but in the residence of #Jinnah at #Aurangzeb road #NewDelhi . Here in the spring of 1947 Col. Akbar Khan & some #Muslim officers of the #British #Indian #Army hatched this plot .
#KashmirAccessionDay26Oct
It was only in October 1947 that Maj. Onkar Singh Kalkat of the Bannu Brigade #PakistanArmy who had not yet been repatriated to #India found files marked Operation Gulmarg Secret while looking for some other documents in the office of Brigadier Murray at NWFP.
Even though he was nearly arrested & sent to #Lahore , Maj.Onkar somehow made it out to #NewDelhi & told the #IndianArmy top brass about the file he had sern which detailed an invasion of #JammuKashmir by tribesmen. He wasn't taken seriously by the Brass .

For the past week, #Iraq has been burning in the flames of the protests of a disgruntled population over the poor state of people's livelihoods. A key #slogan in the nationwide popular uprising since Oct 1 has been the call to expel #Iran's regime and its agents from Iraq.

On Sept 20, 2019,#AliKhamenei's representative in #Mashhad said: "Today #Iran is not limited by its borders. Today #Iraq's Hashd Al-Shaabi is Iran. #Lebanese Hezbollah is Iran. #Yemen's Houthi militia is Iran. The #Vatani front in #Syria is Iran. #Palestine's #HAMAS is Iran."

The #diplomatic cover for the activities of #Quds Force officers and #MOIS agents has given the regime the ability to use #Iraq as a serious base for meddling in other regional countries, including #Syria, #Lebanon, #SaudiArabia, #Jordan, and #Turkey.

I love how #Canada is celebrating the #IslamicHeritageMonth and honoring the rich Muslim heritage and its contributions to the world.

For nearly 1,000 years - from the 8th to the 16th centuries - Islamic civilization underwent what is now known as the Islamic Golden Age.
This period of economic, intellectual & cultural development resulted in countless inventions & advancements which remain ubiquitous till today. We hear about inventions of Western scientists and researchers, but did you know we also owe a lot to Islamic civilization? #Muslim
In #IslamicHeritageMonth, community centers, libraries, & public institutions across #Canada have special screenings & books on display showcasing Muslim innovation across sciences, humanities, medicine, astronomy, & other disciplines.

Here are some of my favorite contributions:

Journalist and peace campaigner #JohnPilger says there was “not a shred of evidence” to suggest #Iran was responsible and nobody should trust the #Trump administration.

Mr #Pompeo, without presenting evidence to support his claim, said his allegations were “based on intelligence
, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation” and more.

President Donald #Trump repeated the claims today during an interview with Fox News, alleging that a video proves Tehran’s guilt.

The video is said to show an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps
boat approaching one of the tankers and removing an unexploded mine from its hull. But the ship’s Japanese owner contradicted the #US interpretation yesterday, saying footage showed something flying at the boat above the water line #Trump promised the US won’t “take it lightly.”
