#RamMandirAyodhya #Bhoomipujan today is another step along the way not to building up a new resurgent strong influential, unassailable #India. It's objective is to build up an (electorally) strong, influential, and unassailable political #RightWing Party.
It is not so much about #religion, it's all about building up a new mythology of overt religiosity, creating a theocracy in the garb of nationalism, asserting control of the majority, and coercing the minority into accepting its subservient status.
Fanatic Hindus may well be celebrating and congratulating each other, but it is hard to see how any of them actually benefit from the Project. The fact of #RamMandir will be used to quell any demands for #RamRajya the apocryphal #PerfectRule that was said to exist at the time.

#LestWeForgetIndia🇮🇳 'Naushera ka Sher' Brig Mohammad Usman, #MahaVirChakra (P), the gallant #IndianBrave made the supreme sacrifice #OnThisDay 03 July in 1948 at Jhangar, J&K, Kashmir War 1947-48
In 1947 Pakistan sent tribal irregulars into the princely state of Jammu & Kashmir in an attempt to capture it and accede it to Pakistan. Brig Usman, then commanding the 77th Parachute Brigade, was sent to command the 50th Parachute Brigade, deployed at Jhangar in December 1947.
On 25 December 1947, with the odds stacked heavily against the brigade, Pakistani forces captured Jhangar. . On that day Brig Usman took a vow to recapture Jhangar a feat he accomplished three months later, but at the cost of his own life.

#justin| The Charge d’ Affaires of Pakistan was summoned today to the Ministry of External Affairs and informed that India had repeatedly expressed concern about the activities of officials of his High Commission: Ministry of External Affairs

They have been engaged in acts of espionage and maintained dealings with terrorist organizations. The activities of the two officials caught red-handed and expelled on 31 May 2020 was one example in that regard: MEA

The behaviour of #Pakistan and its officials is not in conformity with the #ViennaConvention and bilateral agreements on the treatment of diplomatic and consular officials: MEA

#Exclusive China has captured 60 sq km of Indian land according to Government Sources . #laddakh #ChinaIndiaFaceoff
Government sources conservatively estimate that the PLA has captured more than 60 square kilometres of Indian-patrolled territory in the last month -- equally divided between the northern bank of the Pangong Lake and the Galwan River sectors.
Chinese troops now block access to several Indian 'Patrolling Points' (PPs) along the LAC, which Indian army patrols have regularly visited for decades to assert their claim over the area.

A day in the life of a #COVID-19 #healthworker in India. A #Thread.

#indiafightscorona #healthwarriors
What does it mean to be a frontline warrior amid the #Coronavirus ( #COVID-19 ) pandemic? It means being away from home for weeks, staying awake for days and nights,
dealing with emotionally vulnerable patients and a sense of timelessness – when the clock ceases to exist and the patients’ recovery is all that matters.

The White House, on Friday, said that any successful dialogue between #India & #Pakistan would be possible only if #Pakistan cracks down on terrorists&extremists on its territory.

Tensions with #Pakistan spiked after the revoking of special status of J&K on Aug 5 2019.
"We continue to believe a core foundation of any successful dialogue between the two (Indian&Pak) is based on continued momentum in #Pak's efforts to crack down on terrorists and extremists on its territory. So we continue to look for that," an official of the White House said.
The White House official's comments came after the FATF retained #Pakistan on the 'Grey List' with a stern warning from the global anti-terror financing watchdog to complete the 27-point action plan it has been given by June 2020 or face being put on the 'Black List'.

1. What was May doing in #NewDelhi when #demonetization was announced?
2. Why the event was sponsored by a bankrupt #CrownAgent firm blacklisted in India?
3. Who lifted the Ban & gave contract to #DeLaRue to print our notes?…
4. Why the same bankrupted & blacklisted (for colluding with Pakistan ) British #CrownAgent #DeLaRue bailed-out by #demonetization contract is illegally smuggling Biometrics of Indians captured during Pilot Project of #NPR #NRC?…
5. Why is there absolute silence on these questions by mainstream media which is obsessed with all things Pakistan?

The plan to invade the Riyasat of #JammuAndKashmir wasn't born in #Lahore but in the residence of #Jinnah at #Aurangzeb road #NewDelhi . Here in the spring of 1947 Col. Akbar Khan & some #Muslim officers of the #British #Indian #Army hatched this plot .
It was only in October 1947 that Maj. Onkar Singh Kalkat of the Bannu Brigade #PakistanArmy who had not yet been repatriated to #India found files marked Operation Gulmarg Secret while looking for some other documents in the office of Brigadier Murray at NWFP.
Even though he was nearly arrested & sent to #Lahore , Maj.Onkar somehow made it out to #NewDelhi & told the #IndianArmy top brass about the file he had sern which detailed an invasion of #JammuKashmir by tribesmen. He wasn't taken seriously by the Brass .

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

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

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.
