Years after the 1987 #HashimpuraMassacre and #MalianaMassacre
Not much has changed for the survivors and the relatives of the people killed. The wounds are still fresh, the quest for justice is still an ongoing ordeal and they no more trust men in #khakis
Hajra Bi said Our children had come back after Friday prayers when PAC climbed our terrace and asked about gunshots(imprints are still there on the walls).One of them was dancing,He mocked me asked if it was Amitabh Bachchan who had fired.They took away my son who never came back
Haneef said, "PAC desperately tried to enter house and then told me to come outside. I was the first one to be arrested. Later other men from the locality also assembled and formed a line. We were told to keep our hands up and were taken to civil lines police

#Muslims continue to battle the demons of division and bigotry. The senseless murder of #AyaHachem is so painful and yet her beliefs have overshadowed her death 💔

#Ramadan is a time to step back and self-reflect - your collective conscious is screaming otherwise 🙄 /1
When will you understand that this is fuel and arsenal for Islamaphobic right-wing nutjobs? Its a feeding frenzy for the degenerates

You forget that by identifying yourself as #Muslims, you tarnish the reputation of #Islam by giving into your bigotries. /2
Its also a painful reminder that you believe in #peace but your actions display inhumane practices. You are completely disconnected from the reality of your faith. Your cruel indulgences have become your own undoing. Your ignorance breeds intolerance! 🙄 /3

Is this about an election or a virus?

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.

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.

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.

*Thread: Exposing @alnassar_kw @Abdulmane @DrAlshoreka @LadyVelvet_HFQ and many more*

This is gonna be one of those hell lengthy thread but it will be worth watching. By the end of this thread you guys will know the real reason behind their ranting, anxieties they have, their...
Losses, the support they have in India, money laundering in India, how they are building their nexus around India, their hawala connections with few Indian Hawala operators, Shaheen Bagh connection and govt support(local and Kuwait).
Here let me clarify that most of the research was done by @AKacclInt earlier but he was dependent on translator in Twitter which has some factual errors sometimes. But Thanks buddy for allowing me to use your research. Appreciate it. 🙏🏻

Accordingng to the police & locals,the violence which broke out in this part of Hooghly dist #Telinipara West Bengal was a planned, systematically executed attack targeting the #Muslim residents.
The locals allege that the attack was carried out by people coming from ‘outside’.
#Muslims Get #Corona’: How Stigma Burnt Down A Bengal Locality

#Telinipara locality in Bengal's Hooghly saw communal clashes between 10 and 13 May.

‘They Keep Taunting Us Wherever We Go’ ‘Look, look, corona is here’.


You can see whose prop were damaged. So many petrol bombs were used that the road is completely covered with pieces of glass. I guess they used acid too,as liquid from a bottle discoloured a wall

They came in such large numbers & with so much ammu, we couldn’t even resist them

I’ve been focusing on #Pakistan and #CPEC recently, but wanted to tell you all about this article on #India that @WilfriedSwenden and I published recently. In it we assess Lijphart’s claim that India should be coded as consociational 1/n.
Wilfried and I aren't the first ones to do this but we use new data, some from @TCPD_Ashoka to assess power sharing in #India in relation to #religion #caste, #territory and #language 2/n
In relation to the Union #Cabinet we find that #Muslims are under-represented according to their proportion of the population and that this is getting worse 3/n #India Deviation from proportionality in Indian cabinet based on religion 1947-2018

The current #Immigration debate is fascinating.

Proponents of it usually argue that modern Western states should be defined through (liberal) values. But detractors point out that most immigrants, particularly Muslims, aren't really liberal.

So I decided to have a closer look.
I started with Women's rights since this topic is hotly debated.

To that end, I took the Global Gender Gap index from the (2018) Global Gender Gap report and used the percentage of #Muslims per country as a predictor. (Note the confusing fact that a high index means a small gap)
The regression revealed a strong relationship with R2=0.395. This means that almost 40% of variation in the country-level gender gap is explained by the % of Muslims in a given country.

That's way higher than I expected.

Zakat cleanses our money & sadqah act as a protection for ourselves
Paying OR giving out (Zakat & sadqah) is just a final act to relieve OURSELVES but "WHOM TO PAY" is the first step.
"Choose right path to reach right destination"
Start hunting the RIGHT path .. i.e. the Right person whom you wanna pay ZAKAT and SADAQAH, the same way YOU want to hunt the best doctor for your treatment in case you or someone in your family fell ill
Remember : Many poor don't have reference and they don't ask for it. Hunt ..
Finding the RIGHT PERSON who can accept your ZAKAT and SADAQAH is MORE important than giving it out.
Niyyah is part of hunting the right person in my opinion.
Pls hunt the right person.
Don't give to anyone in order to fulfil your duty.

#Islam #Muslims Let me tell you an interesting story today! SubhanAllah! Allah SWT works in different ways! In US there are many organizations who r working towards making people aware what real Islam is & for better understanding between communities of different faith like, 1/n
Christians, Jews, and many more. This was very Important step since after 9/11 tragedy many were wondering what #Islam is and why would #Muslims hate Americans (That’s no true) so many interfaith groups were started, and #DiscoverIslam was started to 2/N
This helped a lot in building bridges in between communities and opened up the opportunity for world to understand what real #Islam is because like in #India there are hate groups against #Muslims everywhere, there is a toll free number, people can call & ask questions about 3/N

For sometime now, liberals in #Pakistan have been peddling the demise of Two Nation Theory that provides the basis of #Pakistani statehood.

One of them is an obtuse physicist Pervez Hoodboy whose pseudo philosophy deems the 1971 secession of East Pakistan as cause.

This proposition especially proves its own intellectually bankrupt, when its made while India is being ruled by #hindu nationalist #BJP.

Who’ve passed genocidal CAA & NRC laws to cancel citizenships of millions of #Indian #Muslims & when 8 million #Kashmiris are under siege.

Hoodboy claims that today’s Pakistan is only half the country envisioned by our founding fathers, therefore Two Nation Theory is dead.

Besides BJP’s #hindu nationalism itself proving the Two Nation Theory, let’s consider how it influenced Bengal’s struggle for independence.

Right-wing Hindutva voices on social media are promoting a dangerous conspiracy theory accusing #Muslims in #India of devising a sinister plot, "Coronajihad," to spread the #Coronavirus. This is leading to violence & hostility against Indian Muslims.
It's not just online, Indian media & BJP politicians r guilty of promoting this reckless, dangerous, & racist accusation. A political cartoon in The Hindu equated #Muslims to the virus, leading to further dehumanization of Muslims. #StopCOVIDIslamophobia
Indian media networks have platformed this dangerous conspiracy theory, giving greater airtime to bigotry. #StopCOVIDIslamophobia

A thread: Shades of bigotry.

1. The relentless online #Islamophia & #Muslims hatred prompted a chat on family WhatsApp group. I said, unlike #IndianMuslims who come across several #Hindus in their lifetime, given d demography, a large number of Hindus have no opportunity...
2. To meet or interact with #Muslims; esp those who come with family traditions of #RSS. Hence, they tend to believe all kinds of propaganda because they grow up listening to that & never get a chance to see that it's all a lie. To this, my sister in law said, but what about...
3. My neighbour. I was speechless. My brother's family has been neighbours with this family for 10 years. They are d closest of friends, eating in each other's homes, women having post-breakfast tea together everyday. Celebrating birthdays/ anniversaries together etc. Yet,

Revelation that #Muslims from #TablighiJamaat r wilful #superspreaders of #COVID19 in parts of India, highlights a bigger issue that secular, democratic (and diverse) societies like India face.
It should serve as a lesson for US & other democracies.
My take on this thread below-
Most democratic societies around the world (including US) used to turn a blind eye towards the activities by #TablighiJamat, because they thought (& some still think) that the "non-political nature of Tablighis" make them less likely to indulge in anti-state terror activities.
But the true pan-Islamic nature of #TablighiJamaat makes them one of the most efficient half-way-house for terror groups like #AlQaeda,#ISIS, et al, that actually indulge in anti-state activities.

A yr ago today, I watched in real-time an attack unfold before my eyes. On a Jummah in March last yr, a white supremacist attacked two #mosques in #Christchurch killing 51 Muslim worshippers as they prayed. Pls take a moment to pray for the victims & their families today.
Scars of the #Christchurch massacre linger. Slowly the shock recedes until all we feel is the echo of the tragedy. One yr on after Haji Daoud Nabi of Al Noor #mosque in #Christchurch uttered the words “Welcome, brother” only to b met w/ bullets in response…
Aya Al-Umari's brother was one of the victims of the #Christchurch #mosque attack. “Every day I feel like Hussein is with me. Any decisions that I make, I just think about, OK, what would Hussein do in this situation?" she said.…

The main issue that some #Muslims are afraid of is #NPR. 🧵

1. The actual population of Muslims & Christians is much more than estimated by the last census carried out in 2011. And aligning NPR with the next one slated for 2021 is something that they desperately want to avoid.
2. Lot of Minority benefits that they get is not provided for in the Constitution and those are likely to stop once NPR nos. are frozen and PIL's filed in SC. The days of surreptious give aways to buy their muscle power would be gone.

3. NPR would mean the establishment of a family tag which will clearly define BPL thereby enabling the govt to stop MNREGA type doles causing loss of payout of thousands to the Muslims. How?

Reports are emerging of widespread anti-#Muslim violence in Delhi, India. Mosques have been set aflame, Muslim neighborhoods attacked, and Muslim cemeteries desecrated by Hindu-nationalist mobs.

Following is a thread of news and analysis as it breaks.

When @thewire_in interviewed a pro-government #Hindutva group about the violence, they replied:

"How dare they protest like this in our country? Is it (their) country? It is our country. We will show them their place."…

Are #Hindu/#Muslim riots inevitable in #India?
-Of course not. (So much academic literature-- see @ProfVarshney among many others).

One key variable is government response. Take two conflagrations in #Gujarat in 2002:
-Feb 2002: 58 #Hindus killed in #Godhra. ~1,000+ #Muslims killed while police (under #Modi) stand by.
-Sept 2002: Terrorists kill 30 at #Akshardam temple. Could have led to mass riots, but #India's PM Vajpayee sent CRPF in quickly to control the situation. No riots.
In both 2002 #Gujarat cases, the initial provocation was extreme (in #Godhra, still disputed whether fire was intentional or accident: Separate question).
-Govt can't stop killing of 30 people, or even 58. But it CAN stop the killing of 1,000.

If it doesn't, it's complicit.
