#IndiraPriyadarshini perpetuated immorality in the Nehru dynasty. Intellectual Indira was admitted in Oxford University but driven out from there for non performance. She was then admitted to Shantiniketan but, #RabindranathTagore chased her out for her bad conduct.
After driven out of Shantiniketan, Indira became lonely as father was busy with politics and mother was dieing of tuberculosis in Switzerland. Playing with her loneliness, #FerozeKhan, son of a grocer named Nawab Khan who supplied wines etc to Motilal Nehru's house in Allahabad!
He was able to draw close to her. The then Governor of Maharashtra, Dr. Shriprakash warned Nehru, that Indira was having an illicit relation with Feroze Khan. Feroze Khan was then in England and he was quite sympathetic to Indira. Soon enough she changed her religion!

RED FORT was NOT built by Mughal rulers namely Shahjahan during his tenure (1628- 1658 AD) in between 1638 to 1648 AD by Employing Ustad Ahmad Lahauri as Chief architect, but instead what they did was only few modifications.

I will prove it.. read the thread below.

PIC 1)
A stone tablet inside Red Fort by modern archeologists proclaims that the Fort was built between 1639 to 1648 AD.

But, a painting of Shahjahan's time preserved in the Boldeian Library, Oxford depicts Shahjahan recieving Persian ambassador inside the Fort in 1928.
How can Shahjahan recieve someone in 1928 in Red Fort if it was built in 1939 AD.

The painting was reproduced in the Illustrated Weekly of India, Page 27, March 14, 1971.
This documentatory evidence disapproves the notion that he build the Red Fort.

[BREAKING] Further restraint upon his liberty not logical or legal: Delhi Court grants bail to Deep Sidhu in ASI Red Fort violence FIR

reports @aditi2118
#DeepSidhu #FarmersProtest @DelhiPolice…
Granting bail to #DeepSidhu, Delhi Court says that Sidhu's arrest in ASI FIR clearly suggested that "it was an attempt to defeat the bail order" in the first FIR and was "a grave affront to personal liberty".

#RedFort #FarmersProtest
"Such vicious and sinister action of investigative authorities amounts to playing fraud with established criminal process and shows scant regard to constitutional protections enshrined, protected and cherished under the Constitution on India,", the Court added.

Delhi Court begins hearing bail plea filed on behalf of Deep Sidhu. Metropolitan Magistrate Sahil Gupta hearing the case. Advocate Abhishek Gupta appears for Sidhu

#DeepSidhu #TractorRally #RedFort #FarmersProtests
Gupta gives reasons why bail should be granted.

1. Both the FIRs contain identical offences.
2. Bail ought to be granted in second FIR as well.
3. Within a few hours of getting bail in first FIR, I was arrested for the second FIR in a malafide manner

#DeepSidhu #FarmersProtests
Sidhu has been in custody for more than 75 days. Both FIRs relate to same incident; registration of second FIR is an abuse of process: Gupta

“Left, Right and Woke: Rethinking Democracy and Technology”

with @MarietjeSchaake @KanchanGupta @PandaJay
@celinecalvez @nealmohan @JJCarafano

@MarietjeSchaake: The digital revolution has had a deep impact on public debate, including due to targeted advertising online that seeks to change user behaviour, especially voting choices.


@JJCarafano: It is important to distinguish between influencing voters -- a part of the regular democratic process -- and malicious activity manipulating voter choices. I do not see much empirical evidence for the latter.

(1) #Thread to examine the claim that the Khalsa flag was unfurled over #RedFort in 1783.
Gyani Gyan Singh, in his 1880 book, gives first ever written account of incidents at #RedFort.

Historian Hari Ram Gupta calls his account as, 'a bold statement which is not supported by any other evidence'.
Even such an account (written 97 years after the supposed-unfurling) does not mention Khalsa flag being unfurled at the #RedFort!

In his description of Sikh attack on Delhi, Hari Ram Gupta doesn't mention unfurling of Khalsa flag.

On India's #RepublicDay2021, #FarmersProtest raised #NishanSahib — the flag of the #Khalsa — over #LalQila, the historic #RedFort that today symbolizes the Indian Republic.

What does it mean?
According to the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak: "The lowliest of the lowly, the lowest of the low born, Nanak seeks their company. The friendship of great is in vain. For, where the weak are cared for, there Thy Mercy rains."
With the advent of the tenth Guru, Gobind Singh, & his establishment of the Khalsa, the original intent of Guru Nanak was finally fulfilled. The downtrodden embraced a Panth — path — in which they will never be victims, always be victorious, & constantly fight for the oppressed.
