We cannot call it #India-#Bangladesh prime ministerial meeting in true sense of the term, since #SheikhHasina came to the WEF meeting. The bilateral visit is scheduled later. However despite its limited scope I find the meeting very encouraging and beneficial for either side. 1/n
Key takeaways from #Modi-#SheikhHasina
Meeting 1) The LPG deal is consequent to #India's decision to invest in LPG terminal in #Chittagong. With time we wil see rise in supplies and #Bangladesh-#NorthEast LPG pipeline. 2/n
LPG deal is a mirror of #India-Bangladesh #diesel pipeline with the exception that in the case of #LPG, #Bangladesh is also getting #FDI. This is early stages of creation of a regional oil & gas grid, which may be expanded to #CLMV #Asean in the days to come. #Modi- #Hasina

Last week, #Modi govt told the Supreme Court that women don’t have absolute right to terminate pregnancy. I spoke to several urban, rural single women in 2013 & find out how common #abortions are. A moralistic lens pushes women to endanger their lives.

In India, a woman dies every two hours because she’s had an unsafe abortion, according to Ipas. I found out that lack of responsibility and sensitisation of the male partner was one of the main reasons for women to be clandestine about their situation and take the unsafe route.
The Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Act came into effect in 1972 in India. The Act permits abortion if the doctor believes “in good faith” that “…the continuance of the pregnancy would involve a risk to the life of the pregnant woman or of grave injury to her physical...

7 weeks today since #Kashmir special status revoked by Indian govt. Landlines returning to life, but mobile phone and internet services still blocked. Fearing violence, parents aren’t sending children to schools. @soutikbbc

Except for pharmacies, most shops closed. Some open, only in the evening. Police say militant outfits have been distributing pamphlets warning people against opening shops, banks, fuel stations.

Locals allege security forces are spreading fear by illegally detaining men and boys. The BBC spoke to 17 families that alleged a child from their home was locked up for several days. Some said they were beaten. @shaluyadavbbc

In #Pakistan, Govt & pundits shouldn't make too much of #Trump appearance at #HowdyModi. It's a circus for #Indian PM, endorsing @realDonaldTrump for a 2nd term while the pro-#India lobby in DC works with anti-#Trump base, & hoping to keep him away from #Kashmir if possible @AQpk
PM #Modi has this in mind while trying to appease #Trump at #HowdyModi: #American restrictions on I.T. visa abuse by #Indian immigrants (aka 'Skilled Immig'), ending #India oil imports from #Iran, jeopardizing #Indian interests in #Afghanistan, & Trump rehabilitating #Pakistan
#Trump turning the screws on #India on trade tariffs, forcing end to oil import from #Iran & forcing India to buy from #USA/#KSA/#GCC, talking to #Pakistan on #Afghanistan, & restricting immigration from India, are things that worry #NewDelhi deeply. Watching #ImranKhan in....

Speaking at #AdiosModi protest of #HowdyModi about how Modi's totalitarian regime is crushing freedom of expression & thought throughout India — raiding homes of professors, writers, activists to interrogate them about the books they own or their pictures of Ambedkar on the wall.
While naked & homeless children survive only by begging in the streets of Delhi, the capital of India, that nation's autocratic ruler just squandered over $2.5 million for a 3-hour spectacle with no other purpose than to whitewash his blood-drenched history. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi
We need to thank the American politicians who heroically refused to attend this event today. I want to name some names. That includes people like Congressman @BradSherman & @RepAlGreen. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi

1/ Prime Minister Modi spoke first. He began his remarks referring to @POTUS as a “very special person” who “needs no introduction.”

“His name is familiar to every person on the planet.”

“His name comes up in almost every conversation in the world on global politics.”
@POTUS 2/

"He was a household name and very popular even before he went on to occupy the highest office in this great country."

The massive crowd packed into NRG occasionally jumped to its feed to cheer as Modi spoke.

Modi, near the conclusion of his remarks, told the…
@POTUS 3/ …crowd that Trump told him "India has a true friend in the White House."

(Indian and American flags are lining virtually the entire stadium)

Modi gave a shotout to Indians: From Houston to Hyderabad.
From Los Angeles to Ludhiana (people cheered as he named their…

Some lesser known fact about #Modi to a common man.

Modi took birth twice, first on 29th Aug1949 as per his fake degree & second on 17th Sep 1950 available in public domain.

He sold tea at the age of 6 years in Vadnagar railway station.

#DhongiModi
But Vadnagar only had tracks passing through it, the actual railway station was built in 1973, when Modi was 23 yrs old.

He was underground during emergency, but did his graduation from Delhi University in 1978.

#DhongiModi
He did Masters in Entire Political Science from Gujarat University in 1983 without a graduation certificate from Delhi University.

He is the only person in the world who has Master's Degree in the Entire Political Science.

1. தலைமை பொறுப்பில் உள்ளவர்கள் கட்சிக்கு உண்மையாக இருக்க வேண்டும்.

My 18,000 word profile of #TulsiGabbard is now outside paywall & free to read. It offers a bio sketch of her, w/focus on her early years in Congress to trace her financial & other support from US affiliates of the RSS, a history of RSS in USA, & more.

caravanmagazine.in/politics/ameri…
Some financing data highlights:

"From May 2011 to August 2012, the surge of funds from Sangh sources, combined with previous donations from [Science of Identity Foundation] sources, totalled over twenty percent of donations to Gabbard’s campaign—about $190,000 out of $923,000."
In 2013, "about $112,600 of Gabbard’s itemised individual donations—20.7 percent—came from Sangh & pro-Modi sources. Over ninety thousand dollars of that was given in June & July alone. She attended five Sangh fundraisers in four states. Her donors included 28 Sangh executives."

There is a saying in Bengali which means the house owner starts taking precautions once the robbery is over. For last three weeks @RahulGandhi became a poster boy of #Pakistan by his immature acts on #Kashmir issue. The realization now dawns that he must change track. 1/n
It is not known what prompted #RahulGandhi 2 try visiting #Kashmir last week, knowing fully well that the #Modi government got moral/legal sanction from the Supreme Court 2 take all preventive measures 2 stop blood spill and, that Gandhi would be returned like other leaders. 2/n
One may see the shadow of #Wayanad in #RahulGandhi's desperation but, to me his acts only helped the politically irrelevant #Left to stay in news. Left has a history of opposing Congress in States while joining hands hands in d Centre. #Congress's gains were short term. 3/n

GANDHI THE PERVERT
Gandhi was fav.Indian Leader till came across this Article.
OMG..he was pervert according to Historians.
Let Sparta share some facts about Mohandas Gandhi.
Hope no one would not be upset, afterall these facts r written by credible people.
Lets start;
Not only a Sex addict , also was a #Racist like #Modi . Looking at history , his speeches and secret life one can assume that he was a Hypocrite too.
Used Sluers like Kaffir aka Nigga for Africans of Black skin.
OMG
Amazingly under the cloak of Philanthropy Gandhi showed his actual worth by writing to English custodian of Colony that he being an Indian ( brown colored) wud prefer not be be called African (Black colored) as he was better than them in Race & alloted separate quarters .....

The #UAE diplomacy with #NewDelhi is a step forward in helping end #India-#Iran strategic partnership. If successful, this will help #Pakistan interests that suffered due to Indian-Iranian partnership in #Afghanistan & #Balochistan. /1

@AQpk
The #UAE is likely hoping to permanently end #India's reliance on #Iran oil imports, and shift its oil contracts to Arab Gulf suppliers. #AbuDhabi is likely also interested in seeing India end its role in #Chabahar port, which has also created problems for #Pakistan and #China.
While helping #Pakistan economically & diplomatically (quiet diplomacy to bring the #US & #Islamabad closer), the #UAE has walked a fine balance to court #India in the hope of encouraging an #Indian shift away from #Iran.

Why was #ShahFaesal fleeing to #Turkey?

For Jamat-e-Liberal folks/peacefuls, Faesal is a legend

First #Kashmiri IAS topper & an #Harvard alumni

He quit everything to bring peace, prosperity & dev to #Kashmir by starting a political party!
Shah Faesal went to attend Mason program in Harvard Kennedy School (HKS)

Prestigious program attended by many politicians from around the world

Half of class becomes PMs, Prez, ministers after they go bk

US senators come there

Top NGOs, UN positions are given to HKS fellows
Why govt sponsored him to Harvard if they knew his allegiance and spent 1crore+?

Claimed he got Fullbright scholarship, but that only pays for travel/boarding

Tuition fees of $80000 is very expensive & fully-paid leave from job with no agreement to work after coming back

Its clear that #Pakistan plans a massive insurgency campaign on steroids against #India that would be backed by the military. India's response should be to retaliate with even greater force so that Pak has to pay an unbearable price for each of its actions.
Such situation would be close to full out war in the Kashmir region and can easily escalate into a full war.
#Pakistan is actually playing into #India's game. Pak's insurgency & supportive military actions will show Pak as the aggressor and India's retake of Pak occupied Kashmir in retaliation for such actions will be totally accepted. India already gamed the whole scenario.

@pbmehta 1/x I feel the game is different here. #Modi & #AmitShah aren’t strategic geniuses - they are bullyboy street thugs with the usual incoherent anti-modernist crap that passes for #Sangh ideology, but with a masterful command of PR and media savvy.
@pbmehta 2/x This combined with the institutional capture that the #Sangh spent decades dreaming about, makes them lethal. I don’t think they have the slightest illusion that this will solve the #Kashmir problem - but the mistake is in thinking they care. This is in fact even better.
@pbmehta 3/x This creates the perfect excuse for a perpetual rolling national emergency. ‘When the country is at war, how can you talk about falling car sales?! Don’t you care about the country!?!’ Substitute with demonetisation, GST, recession, #BJP members raping minors, whatever...

#India escalates tensions☢️ in #Kashmir; claims terror threat but offers no evidence. #NewDelhi is:
➡️Thumbing nose at #US Pres #Trump who twice in 2weeks called for end to K conflict
➡️Scuttling #USPakistan process in #Afghanistan
➡️Hiding #Modi home mess
To show contempt to President #Trump & the #US, #India has released a rapist, relative of ex-mayor of #NewDelhi, who raped a #US woman.
The #US is a big reason for #India's escalation against #Kashmir & #Pakistan.
➡️Ind is angry at #Trump ending #Indian abuse of #American visas; trade tariffs
➡️Ind is angry at #USPakistan coop in #Afghanistan, statements on K
➡️Ind & #Iran lobbies in DC are coop'ing against Trump

@tatatrusts pumped in Rs. 600 cr. in political funding this year. This is more than a 100% hike in funding since the 2014 election, where the entity infused Rs. 220 cr. Could these funds not be used to create #infrastructure instead? (1 of n)
When #Modi was voted to power in 2014, I had observed (and the observation continues to date) the stock markets got bullish despite the not-so-great macro economic parameters. When a #government gets funding of the sort @tatatrusts gives, it has to pander to such #corporates. (2)
It is the prerogative of each organisation/entity how it wants to dospense its surplus, but with monies of such quantum, wouldn't it have been more worthwhile to help regions in need of infrastructural & other basic needs like #healthcare in the form of #charity? (3)

- Guru Prasad
SUbject - Appeasement, Madrasa, Khilafat

1- The Madrasa system is like a sleeping dragon which is actually gradually sinking into an ocean. It is in the best interest of our nation, as well as humanity, to avoid awakening it.
2- What I mean to say is that the #Madrasa system in India, especially in the last 20-30 years, has been on a steady decline. While several other countries have been shutting them down #forcefully or through #legislature (due to activities of spreading radicalism).
3- and whereas in India, all our past Govts chose not to disturb the #Madrasa system so that it can #die down #naturally. In fact, several Muzlim families have been moving away from the Madrasa system, and switching to the #normal schooling system for their kids.

Pakistan welcomes the re-election of India PM Narendra Modi to a second term. He makes Indian history. In this #thread, I explain why Islamabad is pleased to see #Modi win & how a historic opportunity emerges to resolve #Kashmir, make peace./1
Ahmed Quraishi @AQpk #AhmedQuraishi
During the dogfight over #Kashmir skies in Feb 2019, when a #Pakistan-#India nuclear war became a possibility, unprecedented international diplomatic intervention diffused tensions & averted war. But unlike previous crises, many things changed this time. One: world listened to
#Pakistan this time instead of just listening to #India. The 6-times smaller country was always smothered under the attention that India received globally. This time, #NewDelhi overreached, crossed int'l borders to conduct airstrike inside Pak. Strike failed, pilot captured.

Thread on some #KeyTakeaways from #LokSabhaElections2019 results:
1. There was always a #Modi wave but the #LeLi Commentariat insisted it was an undercurrent against Modi and #BJP.
2. Losses in Rajasthan, MP and Chhattisgarh in 2018 were an aberration and not a trend. 1/n
3. Vote transfers do not happen between historically hostile parties. Anticipated vote transfer did not happen in #UP. SP-BSP #MahaGathBandhan was nonstarter.
4. Never mind the bunk peddled by pop political analysts. #India would prefers Government with single-party majority. 2/n
5. Mamata Banerjee underestimated Hindu backlash to her brazen Muslim appeasement and pandering to illegal Bangladeshi immigrants.
6. She overestimated the ability of party goons to strike fear among voters. It took 34 years for LF to unravel; TMC less than 10 years. 3/n
