इस्लाम दुनिया को ३ हिस्सों में बांटता है:
(१)दारुल हर्ब (युद्ध भूमि)
(२) दारूल सुलह (सुलह की भूमि) और
(३) दारुल इस्लाम (इस्लाम की भूमि).

इस्लाम मुसलमानो को जिस हिस्सोंमें वो रहते है उस हिसाब से अलगअलग तरीके से रहने को कहता है. में विस्तार से समजाती हूँ: ..(1/11)
दारुलहर्ब(युध्ध भूमि): ये दुनियाके वो हिस्से है जहा गैरमुसलमानो की तादात ज़्यादा है या फिर गैरमुसलमान उन मुल्कोको चलाते है. यहाँ के मुसलमानोका काम है चुपचाप अपनी जनसंख्या बढ़ाना. कैसे? अनियंत्रित बच्चे पैदा करके #PopulationJihad, गैरमुस्लिमको मुस्लिम बनाके (#LoveJihad),..(2/11)

#Islam divides the world in 3 types and advises #Muslims to behave differently according to the type of land they are in (1)Dar-al-Harb (i.e. Land for War) (2)Dar-al-Sulh / Dar-al-Ahd (i.e. Land for Treaty) (3)Dar-al-Islam (i.e. Land of Islam). Lemme explain the details ..(1/11)
1st type is Daar-al-Harb (i.e. land for war): Those areas/countries where #NonMuslims R majority or where #NonMuslims R ruling. Here #Muslims are advised to silently increase our numbers by all means: over-populating (#PopulationJihad), Converting NonMuslims (#LoveJihad),..(2/11)
, reducing NonMuslim population by rioting and massacre (#DelhiAntiHinduRiots, #BengaluruRiots, #SwedenRiots), Inviting Refugees from Dar-al-Islam (#Rohingya). So now you know why No Muslim country accepts Muslim refugees as it will have no benefit. ..(3/11)

UPDATE: In the ongoing litigation between #TheGambia and @Facebook in the US, The Gambia has submitted its response to FB’s surreply (meaning that the application for an order compelling discovery under §1782 has now been fully briefed). Here’s a rough summary: 1/12
Recall that Facebook’s position is that the Stored Communications Act, a US privacy law, would prevent it from being able to comply lawfully with the request for documents that #TheGambia seeks (including posts by #Myanmar officials & affiliated groups that FB removed). 2/12
#TheGambia takes a dim view of @Facebook’s arguments about the dangerous precedent this could set for privacy rights & argues that Facebook should want ‘genocidal conspirators who have abused Facebook’s platform’ to know their communications will not be protected. 3/12

Update in #TheGambia v Facebook litigation in the US, where @Gambia_MOJ seeks a court order compelling Facebook to disclose various materials re #Myanmar. The Court has allowed another round of briefing, and @Facebook has filed a sur-reply. Here's what's happening. #Rohingya 1/11
Facebook argues that The Gambia’s application under §1782 asks for a subpoena with which Facebook could not lawfully comply. Recall that The Gambia seeks disclosure of posts by Myanmar officials & affiliated groups that FB has removed, plus drafts & private communications. 2/11
Facebook receives 1000s of requests from foreign gov'ts seeking user communications & it relies on the Stored Communications Act (SCA) to process them. FB says The Gambia’s approach would allow foreign gov'ts to obtain information about users w/out any legal process at all. 3/11

In 2017, Judge Abraham (then serving as ICJ President) addressed the Sixth Committee of the General Assembly on the topic of third-party intervention. This is a useful primer for those unfamiliar with the two distinct ways to intervene in an ICJ case.…
As I said earlier, Canada/Netherlands presumably plan to intervene under Article 63 of the Statute. But whether the erga omnes partes character of the obligations at issue in the case could support Article 62 intervention is an interesting and untested proposition. #ICJ #Rohingya
Important to recall that Article 63 intervention is limited to the 'construction of the convention' in question (so the #GenocideConvention here). But there will likely be ample scope to present a construction that is well-informed by the specific facts of this case. #ICJ

Wow, this is a major development in #TheGambia v #Myanmar case at the #ICJ. The Netherlands and Canada have announced their joint intention to intervene in the case. #Rohingya #GenocideConvention…
The joint statement is thin on details, but Canada and The Netherlands will presumably seek to intervene as non-parties under Article 63 of the ICJ Statute (based on their status as parties to the #GenocideConvention).
I have previously raised doubts about the merits of intervention in this case. It can complicate the proceedings & may have limited (legal) benefit if states are simply expressing solidarity with #TheGambia. But it also creates opportunities to make complementary legal arguments.

#UN IIMM head Nicholas Koumjian speaking at @FreeRoCoalition 3rd anniversary virtual forum of #Myanmar #Rohingya mass exodus saying international justice takes long time. Says "we will do what we can for eventual justice for those who suffer" from alleged #genocidal #war crimes ImageImageImage
#UN IIMM Chief Koumjian says those #Rohingyas who fled #Myanmar, cannot go home "continue to suffer everyday that they live outside their homes". Adds in his role, regardless of ethnicity, religion, "we're interested in human beings" to gather evidence of international crimes ImageImage
@ASEANMP @mpklang says "With a heavy heart", acknowledges #Rohingya mass exodus from #Myanmar continues to be "1 of the worst humanitarian crisis". Calls for travel ban, arms embargo against perpetrators in #Myanmar #Military & to keep up pressure "to stop targeted persecution" ImageImageImageImage

On 3rd anniversary of #Rohingya exodus from #Myanmar, @OHCHRAsia urges nation to "address root causes" as it "failed to implement transparent & fully independent accountability measures for serious #HumanRights violations & possible international crimes"
On the 1st anniversary of #Rohingya mass exodus from #Myanmar to #Bangladesh, I had visited the #refugee camps, seen them living in cramped, filthy conditions without work or systematic education. 3 years now, conditions worsened, #repatriation & negotiations practically stalled ImageImageImageImage
When brave #Myanmar citizens like @thinzashunleiyi @maung_saungkha @Thet_Swe_Win in nation speak up for #Rohingyas esp 3 years ago, they risked & still risk being targeted, labelled as traitors or anti-Myanmar. Such activists defending Rohingyas few & far between inside Myanmar

#TheGambia has filed its reply in US Federal Court to @Facebook’s arguments opposing discovery under §1782 in relation to the #genocide case against #Myanmar at the #ICJ. Here’s a thread summarizing The Gambia’s argument. For Facebook’s argument, see my prior thread (below). 1/17
#TheGambia argues that Facebook wrongly claims its hands are tied by US law, precluding its co-operation. The Gambia’s main argument is that the Stored Communications Act (SCA) (invoked by Facebook) doesn't cover the requests, or, if it does, that statutory exceptions apply. 2/17
First, The Gambia focuses on statutory text to argue that the SCA doesn't apply to foreign governments, its officials or its agents, or to anyone who has engaged in unauthorized use of @Facebook’s platform (i.e., in violation of its own terms). 3/17

.@Facebook is rejecting a request to deliver posts to a genocide investigation into the Myanmar army's attacks on #Rohingya Muslims. The information could help to prove Myanmar’s genocidal intent. #OpRohingya
In 2018, Facebook acknowledged it was used to “foment division and incite offline violence” in Myanmar. In 2016 & 2017, Myanmar soldiers & militias massacred #Rohingya; raped women and girls and razed villages, displacing more than 800,000. #OpRohingya…
Previously, in 2013, Anonymous and activists drew international attention to the Rohingya genocide and prevented a massacre at the time. #OpRohingya

Update: @Facebook has filed its opposition to #TheGambia’s §1782 request in US Federal Court for discovery re the #genocide case against #Myanmar at the #ICJ. @Gambia_MOJ seeks access to a wide range of public and private communications by Myanmar officials. #Rohingya 1/15
A short summary: @Facebook argues that the proposed discovery order would require it to violate the Stored Communications Act (SCA)(§ 2702(a)), a US law that prohibits providers of an ‘electronic communications service’ from disclosing the content of user communications. 2/15
@Facebook points to other means for The Gambia to seek the requested information, namely the SCA exception referring to the state-to-state procedure in 18 USC § 2523 (see…), or pursuant to mutual legal assistance provisions in various treaties. 3/15

Col. Ajai Shukla (retd) had floated a conspiracy theory about the #Pulwama attacks, claiming that ‘Pakistan Army & ISI carried out the attack to get Modi re-elected’ as Modi in power. Shukla claimed that, Pulwama being an ‘inside job’ by PM Narendra Modi.(1/10)
Col. Ajai Shukla (retd) had made bizarre statements that the Indian Air Force “diluted” the specifications for trainer aircraft perhaps to favour a particular vendor, #Pilatus. (2/10)
Col. Ajai Shukla (retd), had been complicit in spreading fake news that Gen. (retd) V. K. Singh touched Amit Shah’s feet.(3/10)

@ajaishukla should explain what is his relationship with #NehruGandhi Family Loyalist Suman Dubey & Obsessive Modi Hater Arun Shourie. How was he benefited by #UPA2 when he was given a Program on @DDNewslive(run on taxpayers money). Has he stopped taking #Pension from Indian Army
Who asked him to float #ConspiracyTheory that #Pulwama was a ‘Inside Job’ by PM @narendramodi. Col.(retd) Ajai Shukla (retd) had also claimed that ‘Pakistan Army & ISI carried out the attack to get Modi re-elected’ as Modi in power. At whose behest was it done? Rahul Gandhi?
Col. Ajai Shukla (retd) had made bizarre statements that the Indian Air Force “diluted” the specifications for trainer aircraft perhaps to favour a particular vendor, #Pilatus. Was it to delay the Modernisation Attempts of Indian Air Force?

Fascinating development in #ICJ case against #Myanmar: @Gambia_MOJ has taken legal action in US federal court to compel @Facebook to produce documents from Myanmar government & military-linked Facebook accounts that it suspended or took down. #Rohingya… 1/6
It’s not clear to me from the @Gambia_MOJ application whether the request would reach only material that was posted publicly on @Facebook by the named accounts & pages or would also cover private communications using Facebook messenger. No mention of WhatsApp. #Rohingya 2/6
This is an effort by @Gambia_MOJ to develop additional evidence that shows a government policy by #Myanmar directed at the physical destruction of the #Rohingya (ie genocidal intent), and this evidence also relates to the claim of incitement to commit genocide. 3/6

#Myanmar to submit 1st report to @CIJ_ICJ by this weekend 4 months after world court ruled against nation agreeing with @Gambia_MOJ #genocide did occur against #Rohingyas. But @GlobalJusticeC says response from Myanmar since "has been deeply flawed at worst & superficial at best"
@ASEANMP echoes what @GlobalJusticeC has said in that #Myanmar has not shown any "credible evidence" of "improving the situation for the #Rohingya". Adds they're still living "in #apartheid conditions". This as nation supposed to submit report to @CIJ_ICJ…
@ASEANMP @mpklang even questioned "how are we still at this point?" when it comes to the treatment of #Rohingyas in #Myanmar as they continue to face restrictions in movement & access to services. Member @chamnanxyz also urges @ASEAN to get Myanmar "to implement genuine reform"

@GlobalJusticeC panel with ex-#UN Special Rapporteur @YangheeLeeSKKU, ex-#KofiAnnan Commission member @lvandenassum & #Rohingya @waiwainu on #Myanmar & #Rohingyas with Prof Lee saying she has seen "no progress" in Myanmar to address Rohingya discrimination. #Justice4Rohingya ImageImage
Prof Lee adds it's "ironic" to see what happened to the #Rohingyas in #Myanmar in 2017 and prior now being seen again against the #Rakhine #ethnic citizens as she highlights how the #military is shelling and attacking the residents there now #Justice4Rohingya Image
Prof Lee highlights how it's "entirely doubtful" that the most responsible will be held accountable" for all the alleged atrocities in #Rakhine #Myanmar. Calls for nation to "dismantle" the system of discrimination against #Rohingyas & to amend the laws, reform justice system Image
