While #Muslims are busy #mocking the death of #Hindus in the #TrainAccident. Here's #Odiya Hindus of #Odisha queuing at midnight to #donate #blood for the surviving #victims of the train accident. Irrespective of victim's #religion. That's the difference..

While Chinese are beating Muslims in #Pakistan, the Communist authorities of #China is attempting to demolish Najiaying Mosque, a historic mosque located in Yuxi City, Yunnan.

Till now, 24 Sunni Hui #Muslims have been sent to detention center for resistance.
🔴 In complete silence from the #Arab and #Pakistan media, Communist party of #China will be demolishing the historic ′Nagying Mosque' which dates back to the thirteenth century. The demolition equipment was sent in premises on Saturday 05/27.
The reason for demolition is to implement a judicial ruling which says that the mosque's external appearance is UGLY & does not reflect #Chinese culture. The local Sunni Muslims without any support from the world #Muslim community, are defending the mosque with "#Nara_e_Taqbeer".

I wrote this to a #BJP supporter who wanted to know my political position. I am expanding and sharing it here.

1. BJP is as corrupt and inefficient as #Congress, but it gets a free pass because it is successfully advancing the cause of #Hindu #majoritarianism.

2. Examples are #Rammandir, #kashivishvanathtemple, #Article370, #TripleTalaq, #UCC, #CAANRC, #Cowslaughter bans, random #lynchings of Muslims, ban on #Azan in public, etc. A majority of Hindus in India support these, as they believe these will "put Muslims in their place."

3. In fact, #Corruption under the BJP is likely to be far worse than under Congress rule, because the media (which is now entirely under the control of Modi's corporate cronies like A&A) simply refuses to investigate any BJP corruption scams. Examples: #Vyapam, #Rafale...

A lie a sham this person is a blunt liar Ravinder Pandita & his conspiracy with #BJP #HindutvaTerror No BJP or Amit Shah wanted the people on both sides of #LOC cross for any cause it was #ImranKhan who gave this gesture during kartarpur corridor #DhardaPeeth

There is no concept of Engagement in Islam :A Thread🧵 Image
Engagement is the time between acceptance of the marriage proposal (khitba) and the marriage ceremony (‘aqd). Once the proposal is accepted, the man and the woman are known as “engaged to be married or simply “engaged”. Engagement has no recognition in Islamic laws Image
Who Proposes?

#Traditionally in all #cultures, it is the man who proposes to the woman; and it is done either directly by the man himself or on his behalf by his family. In the
West, even now man is expected to get down on his one knee to propose to the woman he wants to marry Image

#SupremeCourt hears plea challenging removal of 4% #OBCReservation for Muslims in Karnataka close to elections.

SG Mehta: My lords please grant time.

Sr Adv Dushyant Dave: It was already said that it will be taken for interim relief on Friday.

#SupremeCourt Image
Dave: My reservation is removed and given to some else few days before elections. They have removed 4% reservation for Muslims in Karnataka. It's completely against a series of SC judgements. Completely unconstitutional! Why is it done overnight? On the eve of election?
Dave: Without any report? It's against the 1996 Statute. I am shocked at how the government can add this in the GO!

Thread: #MalianaMassacre a Tale of Injustice in India

It has been 36 years since 72 Muslims were brutally killed in the small town of #Maliana, in #UttarPradesh by provincial police force. On 01 April, 40 accused in the #massacre during the 1987 riots in Maliana...,
...Meerut were acquitted, while 23 accused have left this world and 30 accused are missing, against whom the trial will continue. The prosecution failed to produce sufficient evidence before the court, due to which benefit of doubt was given to the accused. #muslimsinindia
It took 36 years for the court to pronounce the verdict i.e. those who were accused in youth were acquitted in old age and children whose parents were killed have crossed puberty. Their families still await even the first glimmer of justice. #MalianaMassacre #IndianSupremeCourt

The Lahore Resolution: A 🧵

#OTD in 1940, the All-India Muslim League adopted the Lahore Resolution—which later came to be known as the Pakistan Resolution—during its three-day general session, which was held in #Lahore from March 22–24.

A. K. Fazlul Huq, the Prime Minister of #Bengal, presented the resolution, which was authored and compiled by Muhammad Zafarullah Khan and served as a formal statement of the party's vision for the future of Muslim #India.

The document famously stated that "...the areas in which the Muslims are numerically in a majority as in the North Western and Eastern Zones of India should be grouped to constitute ‘independent states’ in which the constituent units should be autonomous and sovereign."

Thread: The #Massacre at Best Bakery
On March 01, 2002, the Best Bakery area was attacked and burned down by a deranged mob of #RSS situated in Hanuman Tekri. The Best Bakery case was a symbol of the 2002 #Gujarat carnage.
Its controversial nature attracted the allegation of the State Government, implying the government’s compliance in it. During the incident, a mob targeted the Sheikh family who ran the bakery and had taken refuge inside...,
...resulting in the deaths of 14 (11 #Muslims including family members and 3 Hindu employees of the bakery). This case has come to symbolize the carnage in 2002# Gujrat riots (and the alleged State Government complicity in it) that followed the #Godhra train massacre.

Thread: The Horrific Killing of Ehsan Jafri in the #GulbargMassacre
On 28 February 2002 Ehsan Jafri was gruesomely murdered by a feverish mob. Slaughtered along with him were around seventy women, children and men who had taken shelter with the man....
...whom they had believed was influential enough to save their lives from a colossal armed mob baying for blood.
But he was dragged away by the horde, his limbs were cut off from his body before he was burned. His family could not even locate his remains.
He was a renowned poet, labor leader and politician who was killed in infamous #Gulbarg Society massacre in Gujarat 2002 riots. #Modi, then the CM of Gujarat, was accused of doing little to stop the anti-Muslim riots -an allegation he has always denied.

Can any Indian or @Javedakhtarjadu himself dare to speak on the use of pellet guns, gang-rapes, extra-judicial killings, and stripping civilians of human dignity is the everyday routine of #Indianforces in #IIOJK?
Occurrences like the government sanctioned release of eleven convicts who were charged with the gang rape of Bilquis Bano and the murder of her family in the #Gujarat riots of 2002, conveys clearly that #MuslimWomen are unsafe in India.
@Javedakhtarjadu was hosted by Pakistan at the #FaizLiteratureFestival2023. He is trending on social media, for all the wrong reasons though and none of them have to do with Literature. @Javedakhtarjadu spoke about defusing tension between the two countries and said.....

Was #Shivajis leadership Anti-Muslim? Lets use facts to answer the question in this thread.

Many anti-Muslim historians of India have portrayed him as an anti-Muslim and anti-Islamic, and this concept was used by some politicians of India, especially from #Maharashtra ... Image
for their anti-Muslim propaganda. Haji Mateen Bagban, President of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Muslim Brigade said that he was a secular Maratha king. He never hurt Muslims or tried to defame Islam…in fact, nearly 30% of his soldiers including 11 personal bodyguards were Muslims.
Some faction of Hindu society championed him as an “important part of #Hindu nationalist ideology”, but the truth is that his relationship with Islam and #Muslims is not so black and white. Image

#StoryAlert 🚨

Meet Victoria Gowri, an advocate who was recommended to be a Judge at d Madras HC by the SC collegium led by CJI Chandrachud.

I found evidence of her bias & extreme views against India's #Muslims & #Christians

A thread on her utterances🧵…
Gowri's first known association with BJP started in 2010, as Kerala Mahila Morcha state in-charge. When Modi's govt came to power in 2014, she was appt a senior central govt counsel at Madras HC in 2015.

In 2017, a cabinet committee headed by Modi also appointed her as... 2/ independent director at Kamarajar Port Ltd in Chennai.

In 2020, Modi's govt appointed Gowri as the Assistant Solicitor General of India at Madras HC's Madurai Bench.

The Rs-35,000 Maulana Azad govt fellowship that Shamsher Singh, son of a Punjabi Sikh daily wage worker, received every month did more than fund his PhD. It threw a lifeline to his penurious family. All this has now ended. Follow this THREAD

Contending—without explaining how—that it overlapped with other scholarships, #Modi govt in Dec 2022 ended fellowships for minority MPhil, PhD students. As @ainulrhbr & @arshiiqureshi report, this overlap isn’t possible & reveals a larger trend.

The demise of the 13-yr-old Maulana Azad Fellowships is one of a series of moves by the #Modi govt to end, reduce or make it difficult to access financial assistance to minority communities, in particular to #Muslims.

Justice For All Canada applauds @CanadaGeneva for raising concerns about #BJP state-sanctioned violence, hate speech, and the use of draconian laws against minorities in India, especially #Muslims.


#IndiaUPR @SaveIndiaOrg

But as a leader in promoting global protection of vulnerable groups, @CanadaGeneva has not exercised its full potential to advocate for religious minorities facing persecution in #India.

#IndiaUPR @SaveIndiaOrg

Concrete recommendations from @CanadaFP are needed to combat laws that threaten the citizenship of Indian Muslims, such as the Citizenship Amendment Act (#CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (#NRC).

As the #SupremeCourt demands the registration of criminal cases against #HateSpeech without formal complaints, our research & reportage over more than 2 years reveals the extent of #hatespeech in #India & the extent of inaction against it.
In Aug 2021 @ZafarAafaq & @alishan_jafri reported how rally urging marginalisation & murder of #Muslims in Delhi was 5th such event over 3 months in NCR & Haryana: some events shared common instigators, mobs allowed with minimal or no police action…
In Nov 2021, @kaushikrj6 reported how in 4 cases, #Hindus & #Muslims were unequal before the law: bail was the rule for Hindus who spread hate speech, while jail the norm for Muslim rights campaigners…

#Muslims have two separate nations, carved out of India, where non-Muslims can’t survive even as second class citizens. Hindus, on the other hand, cannot have back, the three of their most sacred places of worship.
Hindus got #Ayodhya, after several protracted battles, spanning over five centuries, including seven decades of struggle in independent India. #Kashi is in courts and status quo continues in #KrishnaJanambhumi in #Mathura. The absurdity of the situation, gnaws the Hindu psyche.
If left to themselves, Hindus and Muslims may have sorted out these vexed issues between themselves. But because of the mischievous role of '#leftliberals', even any meaningful dialogue not been possible.
