Khilafat Movement

What #History Books tell us- Jallianwala Bagh massacre led to the birth of the Non-cooperation movement.

What they should have told us-
As the facts present themselves, in the Amritsar Congress held in 1919, barely five months after the
genocide, Gandhi himself advocated complete cooperation with the British in the wake of the reforms initiated in the royal proclamation and the Government of India Act, 1919. Khilafat Movement saw the birth of the Non-Cooperation movement. Swarajya was just a
by-the-way add-on.

#MahatmaGandhi had a complex relationship with Maharashtra, where his mentor Gopal Krishna Gokhale hailed from.

This thread is about #Gandhi and his relationship with #Marathi (and #Maharashtra)

#Maharashtra produced some of his staunchest supporters like Acharya Vinoba Bhave and Sitaram ‘Appasaheb’ Patwardhan, who was referred to as the ‘Konkan Gandhi,’ and his most bitter critics, like Dr #BabasahebAmbedkar and V.D. #Savarkar.
Eventually, a man from #Maharashtra--#NathuramGodse, killed #Gandhi.

Secrecy – A Revolutionary Policy

What our History Books taught us:
1857 ‘mutiny’ happened because of some upset sepoys whose religion was defiled due to use of cartridges greased with Cow blood and pig fat. Then just randomly some others joined in.

What History Books
should have Taught us: The seeds of discontent were already sown in the hearts of Bharatiyas (read Dalhousie and Salt Tax tweets). However, it was important that it was planned properly such that a simultaneous uprising took place from all sides for the
War of Independence to be concluded successfully.
It started in London where Azimullah Khan (representative of Nana Sahib, to contest refusal of claim to the Peshwa gadi by the British due to sudden unacceptability of the Hindu Law of

Dalhousie is a beautiful hill station, near town of Chamba in Chamba district in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.

It is named after Lord Dalhousie.
Who is he? Lets dive into History to know more about him (not the one our text books taught us).
Lord Dalhousie landed on the shores of Hindustan in 1846. When he became the viceroy he gave up the practice of sugar coating the poison pills to victims of India, and began a system of open and direct oppression. No wonder he is described as
one of the founders of the British Empires.

Following are the territories he annexed to the Empire in the cruelest of ways –

The noisy battle of words over VD Savarkar is a distraction to cover up news that the Government does not like - news about the #Notebandi hearing in Supreme Court, #MorbiBridgeCollapse, the popularity of #BharatJodoYatra, the rising popularity for @RahulGandhi.
Indians are fast realising that they have been fooled since 2014, duped by false promises, taken in by massive Govt-organised scams, legislation that enslaves rather then liberates them.
#WhatsApp forwards don't fill empty bellies and stories of past #Vishwaguru glories do not make up for joblessness or loss of earnings. The people are waking up the fact that they have been divided and told to hate each other. #BharatJodoYatra threatens this cosy conspiracy

#VirSavarkar never pleaded for himself but for all.
Some time back, a document from British library on #Savarkar was made available. It's not the Savarkar's petition from jail, but the notes of #British govt on petition. See the page, where it's written, 'Petition by -1/4
VD Savarkar for an amnesty to all political prisoners'. In the bracket it's written, ' not necessarily include himself'.
What does it mean? He had taken up the case of all political prisoners, not himself ....
See also the 1st page of that document, where it's clear; - 2/4
Letter No 64, 15 January 1918. It also says, #Savarkar pleaded 'general #amnesty may be granted to all persons convicted of political offences...'.

30 October 1883 marks the death anniversary of #SwamiDayanandSaraswati. This is a thread on the links between the #AryaSamaj & the #HinduMahasabha & the #RSS. It will also explain how the Samaj contributed to the growth of the #Sangh

#history #Hindutva #SanghParivar #BJP
The #AryaSamaj was founded on 10 April 1875 at Bombay (#Mumbai) by Swami #DayanandSaraswati. This monotheistic order laid stress on the values laid down in the #Vedas & was against idol worship.
As a counter to the proselytizing Abrahamic faiths like Christianity and Islam, the #AryaSamaj launched a reconversion campaign called #shuddhi. As the #HinduMahasabha grew in the 1920s, many #AryaSamaj leaders joined it. Shuddhi became one of the Mahasabha's driving forces

What #Savarkar got was not a 'stipend' or 'pension,' as Congress alleged, but an allowance from the British Raj. Others who got such an allowance from the British Raj were the Bose brothers Subhas & Sarat Chandra, Mahatma Gandhi & so many other Indian freedom fighters. A small 🧵
When the #British imprisoned #Indians or held them as detenus or internees, usually in cases where there were no charges & no trials (as when Savarkar was interned in Ratnagiri from 1924 to 1937), they paid a monthly allowance to them for 'loss of income' so they (in terms of..
food etc) and/or their families could maintain themselves. Govt statue allowed them to have money from the public purse for this purpose. When the Raj, in the early 1930s, decided to drastically cut these allowances, Subhas Chandra Bose...

A thread 🧵
Do you know the first one to suggest Partiton of the country based on religious lines? It was #VeerSavarkar
He suggested the two nation theory in while delivering the presidential address to the 19th Hindu Mahasabha session at Ahmedabad in 1937.
1/n Image
The theory of two nations was first proposed in #Savarkar’s book, Essentials of Hindutva & was later passed as a resolution by the Hindu Mahasabha in 1937.
In 1940, All India Muslim League, led by Jinnah adopted this concept in its Lahore session. Why blame Pt. Nehru?

BJP is forcing #Savarkar on the people of Karnataka. They want his photo to be installed alongside Lord Ganesha in all the #GaneshUtsav pandals as the supreme freedom fighter of the nation.
But did he really contribute to the freedom struggle as claimed by BJP?

A thread 🧵 1/n
Seems like #Savarkar wanted to be a revolutionary, but was unwilling to pay the price of being one. People like Bhagat Singh,Azad, Bose & thousands of others paid the price with their lives,but the intimidating sentences by British did it’s job of softening him up completely

When arrested in London for extradition to India in 1910 to be tried in India for Nashik Conspiracy Case, #Savarkar approached the King’s Bench Divisional Court for writ of Habeas Corpus because the rules of evidence in India were different & extradition would be unfair.

@MujtabaAasif #Savarkar wanted rape to be used as a tool to oppress Muslims. That man is adored & revered by the whole Government the tool was used by RSS goons in #BilkisBano rape and murder of 8 members of her family.
Every single #Savarkar supported is a potential rapist.
“Only Muslim men alone, if at all, suffered the consequential indignities but the Muslim women – never!” wrote Savarkar in the book "Six glorious epoch of Indian History. Savarkar had this perverted idea that Muslim women to be raped and taught a lesson.

They had reduced it to a small Mutiny.

One man, #Savarkar saw it (1857) as “First war of independence,” by writing a book on it which was banned by British before the release.

Drawing inspiration Savarkar always saw infiltration in forced as key to independence.
Revolutionaries always followed the principle as paved by Savarkar.

Finally it was well buttressed by RB Bose, followed by great icing by #Netaji

Certainly the rebellion in Brit forces & INA became major reason for our freedom.
For me it was #Savarkar who had done the Shilanyas of the Grand Plan which resulted in something that we are celebrating today as #AmritMahotsav

We owe so much to him.

In the prospectus of University college #Mangalore it is clearly mentioned that "Students who wish to wear #Hijab with uniform are allowed to wear, as matching to colour of uniform". Which is followed by students from several decades. 1/n ImageImage
On March 15, Karnataka High Court ordered to follow uniformity as per govt orders and CDC rules. #Hijab wearing Students of University College Mangalore were allowed to write their degree semester exams till May 7, as they were allowed earlier. 2/n

1/n #SadarPranam to Ishvara within you @quizzicalguy !

It was fun reading this hilarious thread by you centered on displaced views about #Netaji & how so called Indian Right looks at him.

This thread has point wise rebuttal. Do respond should you have enough substance.
2/n Firstly, you must know that even once Savarkar wrote lullabies in name of Hindu-Muslim unity, only to latter turn into whom you might call "Hindu Communalist."

Who knows had #Netaji seen the phase of #DirectActionDay, how would he have behaved?
3/n Dear @quizzicalguy , I don't know if you know it or not but once SR Goel whom too you might dismiss as Hindu Communalist stood being a Gandhian & Communist only to change opinion after he had to save his life during #DirectActionDay

#Thread: Anti-Brahmin Riots of 1948 - A Congress Conspiracy?

Following the death of MK Gandhi, Maharashtrian Brahmins experienced horrors, that despite being recorded, are unknown to the masses.

Brahmins were manhunted only because the assassin belonged to that community.

Within a few hours of Gandhi’s assasination, the details of the assassin and his caste miraculuosly trickled down to different parts of the country.

How did this happen? There was no social media back in 1948 to help this spread of information.

Who planned this pogrom?

Senior Congress leader and the Home Minister of the Central Provinces then, who later went on to become the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh wrote some very intriguing things in his memoirs.

Dwarka Prasad Mishra, in his ‘Living an Era’, reminisces in his works👇🏼
