I reported this: 1 month, 3 #Punjabi pop #singers harassed by #Hindutva workers for condemning caste, religion. Punjab's Dalit population at 32% is 2x national average. Researching a film in 2016, I learnt of ongoing wave of Punjabi Dalit-pop @TheSwaddle
theswaddle.com/hindutva-extre…
These singers assert their caste by naming it in songs as pride-filled identity: subverting the abusive connotations dominant castes (DCs) had stuck on #Dalit caste names. Rajni Thakkarwal survived DC men’s attempt on her life while she was singing #ChamaarPop.
Rajni isn’t alone. “We were given a court notice for singing about Babasaheb [Ambedkar] and against Brahmanvaad, Manuvaad,” says Roop Lal Dhir, possibly first Punjabi #Ambedkarite #musician in 1986. @BawaRanjit ‘s recent song 'Mera Ki Kasoor' questioned caste and religion

In the next 12 states, #Telangana has the worst CFR followed by #Punjab - though the latter is lower than the national CFR.

#Uttarakhand has seen a sudden spike in deaths over the last few days, though luckily the base is low

(2/3)
Deaths due to #COVID19 in #India is yet to really slowdown, we need this to happen.

Early #detection, #quarantine, #treatment & #Masks4All is crucial for this.

Given that we have to live with this for a while, we need to reduce the #deaths to zero!

What can be done about #COVID19 in #Pakistan? After having worked on this country esp. #Punjab for the past 15 years, let's start with what we KNOW from a data perspective GIVEN there is little testing and little enforcement and just the size of the country of 220 million 1/n...
Taking a composite of satellite images, latest census, and cell phone data, and using machine learning we now know exactly what the population landscape looks like. Its highly complex. My home town, Lahore, seen as the large red color, is just 12 million alone 2/n...
This information can be coded into distinct settlements and mapped onto censuses to get a more accurate picture of population distributions and education structures. This has already been achieved via brute force matching, statistical matching, and machine learning...3/n...

Thread:

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.

/1
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.

/2
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.

A tweet thread on #India's #Government #Finances
1. They are in a deep mess. The #Punjab #FinanceMinister came out of a #GSTCouncil meeting to suggest that the #UnionGovt may be close to a #SovereignDefault, because it is unable to p[ay out to the States's their share of GST.
That may be hyperbole. A sovereign default is when the Govt is so cash strapped that it is unable to service its debt. I'm not sure India is anywhere near that dire situation as yet.
But that does not mean that the Public finances are rosy. In fact they are dire in the extreme!

Can the family of a Pakistani PM visit #Bangladesh & spend a week visiting as guests of the state & be celebrated by the Bengali upperclass? How many years does it take to forgive & forget mass rape, murder & economic subjugation? Is 70 years the magic number? 1/n

#royalvisit
Is our culture that forgiving? Sure guests should always be honored but what if those guests belong to a tribe that took away EVERYTHING from our forefathers? Perhaps those celebrating are the same people who remained their junior partners in crime. The British Raj was brutal 2/n
Millions of our fellow countrymen perished for no fault of their own. Still diplomatic norms dictate we show respect for int’l guests, as no one is innocent really. But do we have to sing & dance in the streets when our hearts feel lingering pain caused by their actions 3/n

Deeply saddened to know of swargvas of @RSSorg veteran Shri Jaikrishna Sharma, who bravely stood up against #Khalistani terror at its peak. Organised Punjab Rashtriya Suraksha Samiti.Held lectures, processions all over #Punjab. तेरा वैभव अमर रहे मां हम दिन चार रहें ना रहें 🙏
Was bed ridden 4 years when I met him in Una HP due 2accident. But full of warmth. Was happy 2tell me abt Punjab struggle, showed photos, news clips of those days 4my PhD research. He was emotional when he talked of @narendramodi ji, saying he never imagined he will see this day
When Rajju Bhaiyya ji , then Sarkaryavaah, asked him, you know the possible of responsibility of fighting #Khalistanis? Jaikrishna ji said, "Yes, bullet." He coined the slogan in Punjabi - "We will not allow any division between Hindu-Sikh, we will not allow another 1947." 🙏
