1/3. Last week, a young #Muslim woman had a knife pulled on her in the #Toronto subway.

A man approached her and peppered her with questions about her religion. Then pulled out a large knife. She ran for her life and escaped.
2/3. We urge the police to apprehend the suspect and investigate this as a hate-motivated crime. We must look out for one another as #Islamophobic hate crimes rise in #Canada.
3/3. Please read about this incident in detail, along with our comment, in our press release.

Please share this story widely.

The good thing is that all across America diverse stakeholders are waking up and realizing that these #Hindutva organizations such as @HinduAmerican are deeply bigoted and #Islamophobic and a threat to peace, pluralism and liberty in the country.
As the @TheProspect magazine wrote two months ago, the #DemocraticParty too has begun an internal discussions on such organizations and their hate-filled bigotry. The #Teaneck Democratic Party unit actually passed a resolution demanding @FBI @CIA probes in many #Hindutva outfits
The @NAACP’s unit in #BergenCounty in #NewJersey came out in open support of the demand that @FBI and @CIA investigate #Hindutva organizations for their connections to India’s #Hindutva supremacist movement.

The appetite of #Islamophobia & to blame Muslims for everything wrong is so high among the fascist Hindu majority that they want to believe every lie and tricks. They had actually blamed Muslims for #Covid_19 despite it was a proven fact that they had nothing to do with it.
While the world was fighting #Covid_19 Hindu majority took the opportunity to attack own Muslim minority. Muslim hawkers were boycotted and beaten up by Hindus. False videos of Muslims spitting on currency notes were spread. Indian media actively took part in demonizing Muslims
The members of Tabligh Jamaat who had come to India spent almost a year in prison and were falsely accused of spreading #Covid_19 & were exonerated by the Indian courts but Indian Media spread fake news of them walking naked spitting. HINDU majority wants to believe such stories

Trying to do thread on this issue. Leicester’s unrest is a problem for the whole city, not just Hindu and Muslim communities… via @ConversationUK
This is a very important article by @DrChrisAllen re situation in Leicester re #Hindutva attacks there & reaction of authorities. I am very disturbed about what happened in my borough of #Brent last week. The reaction here has been quite similar. 🧵
Part 2 of long thread
@WembleyMatters @Brent_Council @MAsgharButt @MPSBrent
As this article points out Muslims are deemed to blame for everything and guilt is automatically ascribed to us. So many presumptions are made based on #Islamophobic tropes & stereotypes. 🧵 continues

why has army been called in to vaccinate,
drive ambulances
& HGVs

why is the govt desperately trying to recruit teachers who've left / retired

reducing the self isolation period from 10 to 7 days

asking hospitals to prepare for mass casualty events next month
how are hospitals going to separate out #Omicron from #Delta patients, given both can infect you at the same time - they are *separate* variants

we don't need a #Delta #Omicron super variant where the *supposed* mild #Omicron combines with the deadlier #Delta variant!!!!!!!
I could really go on, but I just can't

oh, except to say

why the *fuck* aren't all hospital staff being issued with FPP3 masks

who will care for us, if 50% of hospital staff end up isolating 2 weeks from now, when everyone rings 999 after xmas mixing

Scientific Racism

#SupremeCourt to hear a plea to restrain social media platforms from carrying Islamophobic content on their timelines and to direct a CBI or NIA probe against Twitter and its users involved in putting out “inflammatory posts”

The petition refers to how “massive publicity was given by the media that many of the positive cases of symptoms of coronavirus were found from Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin in Delhi”.

After yesterday’s tragedy, I wanted to give you a window and a little insight into being a Muslim Canadian and into the Canada we experience (1/7)
I was born in this country and have dedicated my life as a cancer surgeon to alleviate the suffering of ALL Canadians. I LOVE MY country. So why is on days like today we’re made to feel we don’t belong? (2/7)
I spent 15 years in post-secondary education and during every stage I was exposed to some form of #islamophobia. Even random #islamophobic jokes, often made teasingly without negative intent, serves to propagate these feelings of not belonging (3/7)

I had asked @EthzemaLeader the following question after his controversial/deliberate remark against #IslamicBanking/#InterestFreeBanking (as it is called here in #Ethiopia). I have today watched another video of him where he tried to "Clarify" but continued to insult us more.
First of all, he has tried to defend that he is not an #islamophobe by bringing #Muslim audience & that his grandmother was a Muslim. This is the same reply many persons give when they are confronted with their #Islamophobic attitude. #BerhanuNega is no different.
You can have #Muslim parents, lived with #Muslims fasted #Ramadan, eaten #Dates or #Sambusa etc you can still be an #islamophobe. One can claim to be a Muslim but in reality be the most #Islamophobic person that hates #Muslims and #Islam. It is a lame excuse!

Just read the @sfchronicle article by @RepAdamSchiff & @RepSpeier. First, during decades in Congress, these esteemed politicians have never said a single word about illegal occupation of 20% of #Azerbaijan’s lands by #Armenia & 1 million forcibly displaced #Azerbaijanis. 1/13
Invasion, total ethnic cleansing & nearly 30-year-long occupation of #Azerbaijan’s sovereign territory by #Armenia was well-documented, incl. by @UN Security Council resolutions and successive US administrations, starting with #Clinton Administration. 2/13
Brutal massacres against #Azerbaijani civilian population by Armenian troops, incl. the #Khojaly Genocide of 1992, which @HRW called the #largest massacre in the conflict#, are also well documented. 3/13

Hardline Anti-national agenda converted into web series whose sole motive is to shame Hinduism, promote communalism, racism & what not.

Negative portrayal of Hindus is not just a trend, it’s a nexus, aimed at demeaning Hindus at all costs & by all means!

A thread

We saw first two episodes of this @PrimeVideoIN web series.

Care is taken in the minutest detail to display India as a typical #Islamophobic country wherein the political system kills Muslims.

@KapilMishra_IND @GemsOfBollywood @SecularBolly @Ramesh_hjs

A close aid of prime minister's son asks police to kill 3 Muslim youth namely - Ayub, Saleem, Imran who are protesting in a farmer strike.

Accordingly, Ayub & Saleem are killed by police.

Imran goes to his college amidst the strike & is saved.

Joy Reid made some #Islamophobic comments on Monday's show. She said that Trump uses violent language like leaders in the Islamic world. While it's true that some leaders use that kind of language, it is an ugly, intolerant generalization.

Joy Reid deflected criticism, on...1/6
her morning show, saying that it's only a morning show, she's not a real journalist. Since she's not a real journalist, by her own admission, she has no business hosting an evening show. I am calling on #MSNBC to fire Reid, who is a propagandist.

And I'd like to address... 2/6
the idea that Muslims teach their children violence, because I've heard it an awful lot. And I think people let it slide when they hear it. In the United States, children start watching super hero shows and shows with fighting around 8 years old or so. By 10 or 12, most... 3/6

The right-wing of @UKLabour, led by @Keir_Starmer & cheered-on by the anti-Labour press are very publicly sticking the knife into the #Labour left by sacking #RebeccaLongBailey. What do the sectarian left do? Silent: @workersliberty, the @Clarion_Mag, @MomentumInt_. /1
Some of their supporters give the game away, dishonestly claiming that #MaxinePeake (and by association @RLong_Bailey) peddled an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. No surprise as the #Islamophobic @workersliberty have been giving left cover to false claims of AS all along. /2
This organisation and their assorted fronts are not part of the left. They act solely in the interest of their own organisation and as a result not only aided the downfall of #JeremyCorbyn but also scandalously British imperialism's military intervention in Syria & beyond. /3

It's good that @AltNews calls OpIndia a "right-wing propaganda website", not a news website. The tragedy is that this rag's #Islamophobic agenda is no different from several Indian news platforms and journalists who/that were once respected and reliable.…
It takes a particular level of evil to play around with a grieving father's words to claim that he alleged a communal angle to his child's death, as OpIndia seems to have done, especially during a pandemic. More details in an earlier report by @thewire_in…
A word of appreciation for Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey who took the trouble to do a nearly half hour FB live today to explain details of this drowning and dispel rumours of a communal angle to this death. Please watch this video. @bihar_police @IPRD_Bihar…

Before calling #Islamophobia in India, arab intellectuals should first end hinduphobic mindset in arab itself and stop pushing billions of dollar to just full fill one agenda i.e. to spread Islam across the world and to end all other diversity.…
The paid jihadis of Islamic world & those who deny d common sense &science for centuries, #ISIS sympathisers, those who want dis world free4m non muslims are paddling now #Rss_terrorists hashtag.BTW world never accepted that there is any intellectualism in wahabi religious bigots
The arab intellectuals should first clarify, whether they believe in freedom of expression&minority rights or not?They sud nt behave like patron of all muslims on earth. These islamic intellectuals should first give basic HR and liberty to non muslims in their own country.

Once Mussolini said, "We've created our myth. This myth is a faith, a passion. It isn't necessary for it be a reality. Our myth is the nation & the greatness of the nation! And to this myth, which we want to translate into a total reality, we subordinate everything.
Following the Mussolini's philosophy Media created myth abt #COVID19Pandemic, earlier media called it #ChineseVirus which caused discrimination agnst NE-Indian, they're not allowd to enter in grocery stores, forced to vacate their rented house & were called #CoronaVirus.
Adhering "Our myth is the greatness of nation", Indian Media ran propaganda against #TabligeeiJamaat and repeatedly held them responsible for spreading pandemic and termed it #CoronaJihad.

So I said im gonna refute and expose the book #unveiled by the Islamophobe #ExMuslim Yasmine Mohammed @YasMohammedxx

The book is written in a way such that the avg non muslim ppl with negetive biases against Islam will get emotionally attached with it & then fall in her trap Image
@YasMohammedxx I left the first four article from the book bc she basically showed how evil here Muslim Parents were, mostly about her Mother..... so ill come to those things later

But what i read afterwards was just unbelievable, I thought im basically refuting the ideology of #ISIS
@YasMohammedxx The chapter she started with criticizing the beliefs is by the title JEWS

and honestly what she did was she basically vomits the #Antisemitism in the name of "Islamic belief"

Now the problem is the avg non muslims or right wing extremist can easily be fell for such thing ...

[Thread] You might see the hashtag 'KidsNotSoldiers' over the next few days. It's from a new organisation called 'Coalition to Save Palestinian Child Soldiers' for their new campaign 'Palestinian Child Soldiers' (PCS) Week

Came across it here:… 1/18
I write & research about violence, activism, conflict resolution etc. in Israel-Palestine for my job at @ItmakesSNS, so I wanted to know more about this new organisation and event - it sounded interesting. 2/18
There is plenty to be said & written about the militarisation of youth in Israeli & Palestinian societies. This is something that is unfortunately part-and-parcel of most armed conflicts. This article from @snopes does a great job breaking it down:… 3/18
