#ForestSurveyofIndia has declared #Maharashtra as the ONLY state which has registered a GROWTH in #forestCover in past years

Not just #forests, but trees outside jungles have also seen a spike
253 m2 rise in #trees
82 km2 rise in #mangroves

#HaritKranti
#GreenMaharashtra
Survival rate of the 23 crore trees planted

2016 72 %
2017 80 %
2018 85 %

Impressive, isn’t it?

More focus has been on areas of the state with LESS forest cover like Marathwada, Western Maharashtra & Vidarbha

#Aarey facts #Activists don’t tell us

Environmental Impact Assessment (#EIA) report of having @MumbaiMetro3 carshed in #Aarey was prepared not by #MMRCL or any govt agencies but by a neutral #Japanese agency - #JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency)?

#AareyAikaNa
#Aarey Facts we don’t know 2

In Oct 2018, #MumbaiHC accepted govt’s argument that the #Aarey land will not be used for ANY #commercial project and a monitoring and supervising mechanism would be in place to ensure that the #conditions imposed on the MMRCL are met

#AareyAikaNa
#Aarey Facts we don’t know 3

Only #2 % of #Aarey land is used for #Metro

There are no #Adivasi padas nor #wildlife per se in the 30-hectare area, which is bound on 3 sides by major roads-
Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Rd
Marol-Maroshi road &
Goregaon-Mulund Link Road

Shocking revealations by @Dev_Fadnavis

When it is was decided to build @MumbaiMetro3 carshed inside #Aarey, govt received 13,000 objections of which 10,000 were put up on a #Bengaluru based website.

The handwritten objections recd were a few 100

#AareyAikaNa
#AareyAiklaNa
#SC has already said that the proposed area for car depot in #Aarey is #notAForest or a place rich in #biodiversity, but it is #Govt land where permission can be given

It has also ruled out the #feasibility of any #alternatives

#AareyNotAForest
#AareyAikaNa
#AareyAiklaNa
. @Dev_Fadnavis has dubbed @MumbaiMetro3 project as a #CarbonUltraPositive

He said: We will be putting 13,000 trees in place of the trees that will be cut

Plus, his govt will be planting #50crore trees across the State of which #33crore have already been planted

Terrible events in #SriLanka. This is targeted killings.

We can certainly rule out #LTTE hand in this (whatever that's left) as it specifically targeted the Catholic churches and foreigners.

This looks like a hand of the Islamic outfits.

#SrilankaBlast
#SriLanka has been peaceful for a decade now. Is this now a sign of the entry of radical islamic outfits !?

Usually they do indulge in large scale attacks to announce themselves...

Hope not.

If it is indeed #Islamic terror, Srilanka must weed them out NOW.
Specific intelligence inputs received but not acted upon.

Coastal areas attacked.

Hotels hosting foreigners targeted.

Reminds me of 26/11 #Mumbai attacks.

Typical terror signatures should not be ignored.

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

On the sheer quantum of Pakistani provocation, 26/11 Mumbai was many orders of magnitude higher than #PulwamaAttack.
We stayed comatose, then.
In any parameter, casualties, location, unexpectedness, simple bravado. Mumbai was much, much worse.
We stayed comatose, then.
#PulwamaAttack involved only Indian paramilitary personnel. Mumbai had international, even American and Israeli, casualties.
We stayed comatose, then.

I am glad to see @PatrickStrud’s article quoting 5 British feminist academics who quite rightly remind us that feminism must include rights of trans women. It reminds me of an argument that happened after 1 of my talks in #London when 2 white lesbians bombarded me w/ transphobia
I mention that the 2 transphobic lesbians were white because they followed me to dinner after my talk where a gay #Saudi man, a bisexual Saudi woman and I defended trans rights against those two. In no other country have transphobes followed me to dinner after my talk to argue.
I wanted to eat & to talk w/my friends and the transphobes wanted to lecture. I told them that as far as I was concerned trans women are women and the fight against patriarchy had to include trans rights.And then I said i had just spent 90mins on a lecture & Q&A & I wanted to eat

2019 election is battle of survival & revival of Hindu identity against forces that bear more than a resemblance to the then invaders. Since independence, anti-Hindu forces have left no stone unturned to destroy Hindu civilization.

At #YMCA #Mumbai for #CSSS's panel discussion on the book "#BabriMasjid, 25 years on..."
.@irfanen begins by describing how the book came about. A little bit of analysis, not so much about whether it is #RamJanmbhoomi. The various authors. But important to look back, understand how we got to Narendra Modi as PM.

After 25 years, Babri pops up mostly at election time
"All kinds of things are happening, yet there is dream of hope." People of India have always given the message that we are not going to believe your "politics of memory" every time elections come. More so now, with the semifinal results.

Alright, so the esteemed @ArmoryBazaar posted some pictures of coins found in Idlib - Syria. I would like to make a thread out of this, for future coins. I will post my take on these coins, but I'm very much interested in other opinions.
The two small copper coins (picture 2 & 3) are in my opinion #Umayyad copper fals. The inscription features Islamic texts, most definitely the Islamic shahada. That indicates they're from the later Umayyad period. I would say 8th century.
It's really possible that the last coin is much older that the other coins. It still features a cross and human imagery, indicating Byzantine influences. This kind of coins were used in early Umayyad times, when the caliphs still imitated #Byzantine en #Persian coinage.

After a week visiting #Delhi and #Mumbai in #India and talking to people in Universities, thinktanks, business and international trade about #Brexit, a short thread summarising what I heard. /1
The EU is seen primarily as a free trade bloc, and a successful one. Therefore, for the UK to leave in order to pursue 'free trade' is seen as somewhat baffling. /2
UK policy on migration is well-known and the referendum was seen, in part, as the UK turning its back on Europe - but also the world. The refusal to discuss high-skilled migration from India to the UK will prevent discussions on trade. 3
