1/n #SadarPranam to Ishvara within u @SitaramYechury sir from an ex-Marxist!

Savarkar didn’t even use term”two nation”in his Calcutta address of 1939. Perhaps someone passed you wrong WhatsApp. Read this thread where I put excerpts of his speech.

Refute should u hv substance.
2/n I’m starting of directly with part where #Savarkar speaks of how “Hindus” are nation in themselves.

He criticises Territorial-Unity to define nation as conceived by Congress & calls it an European Concept. Further he cites eg of Poland & Czechoslovakia.
3/n According to #Savarkar they broke because Cultural Identity is only substantial one compared to “Territorial Unity”. He points out categorically that only those nations survived which which despite being territorial has culture, linguistics type affinities as root. Eg,France.

"The battle of freedom once begun,
And handed down from sire to son,
Though often lost is ever won!"

"Nationalism was simplified to a choice to love and express that love monogamously, toward's one's country."

~excerpts from @vikramsampath's book on #Savarkar.
#ElectionResults2019 bypolls
• UDF won all seats in Kerala.
• Congress won Puducherry.
• JDU lost 3/4 seats contested in Bihar.
• AIMIM opened account in Bihar.
• SP wrestled two from BSP-BJP both.
• Ram Vilas Paswan retains Samastipur.
• Congress won 8/13 seats in Punjab.
If #GopalKanda becomes a part of the BJP govt, some of us will feel strongly disappointed.

I feel I have made a mistake along the way by basing my faith on BJP alone. BJP off lately has prioritized winnability over ideology, taking a realist but treacherous stand.

Want to know some contrasts between how British treated Nehru and how they treated Savarkar? Read… British let Nehru fly to Europe in 1935 to see ill wife, releasing him, while Savarkar bros were not even informed of death of elder bro's wife. (1)
Savarkar indeed write petitions to British while in jail in Andamans, where he was incarcerated from 1911 to 1921. In reality, those petitions were a ‘strategic letter of ploy’ to get out of jail, for which #Savarkar should be praised. Shivaji wrote such letters to Aurangazeb(2)
#Savarkar was a disciple of Shivaji. In 1666 in Agra in Aurangzeb’s jail, Shivaji wrote such a letter to Aurangzeb to secure his release. Shivaji made many promises in that letter to Aurangzeb. But when he escaped these promises evaporated into thin air. #Savarkar did same! (3)

It appears #Savarkar’s #Jayanti passed yesterday without my notice. On the unhappy occasion, it’s worth remembering some things he wrote.
So what did #Savarkar write? “We Hindus must have a country of our own,” wrote Savarkar. “Truly Hindus are and cannot but be the mainstay of our Indian State.” He insisted that anyone living in India is, de facto, a Hindu — that is, that being Indian meant being Hindu.
#Savarkar wrote, “If you call it an Indian Nation it is merely an English synonym for the Hindu nation to us Hindus, Hindusthan and India mean one and the same thing. We are Indians because we are Hindus and vice versa.”

1/n #SadarPranam to Ishwara within you @waglenikhil ji. I’m sorry to say but you are spreading fake information about #Savarkar ‘s “Six Golden Pages” & also exposing ur flawed vocabulary skills. Read this string & respond(bt not b4 n/n)or else apologise for fakery. @Shubhrastha
2/n Let’s begin checking ur “use of words” as starter. You say “...totally anti-Muslim & Communal..” Any idea what does”communal”mean?

Is being Communal~Anti-Muslim? NO It’s not.

Definition of “Communal” in image2. In short anything relating to “one community” is “Communal”.
3/n So @waglenikhil by internationally accepted definition of “Communal” anyone calling “anti religion~communal” is but a FOOL. Do you get it?

Further,bcoz you have spoken for Gandhi, while shunning Savarkar. Let me give you a comparative though I’m an admirer of Gandhi. Read👇🏼

So much on #Godse, rightly so.
Now my simple questions -
1. No postmortem in Gandhi ji. Why?
2. No investigation of 4th bullet. Why?
3. Madanlal Pahwa confessed to plot to kill Gandhi ji 7-10 days earlier when he hurled crude bomb. Why no security to Gandhi ji?
-Who exploited Gandhi ji Assassin and benefitted from it? Nehru & Congress. Milking it even today.
-Who suffered most? #RSS, #Savarkar, cause of #Hindutva.
- Worse -all of this even after police, courts, enquiry commission gave clean chit to RSS,Savarkar
#Irony died 1000 deaths
Why was Gandhi ji not taken to hospital but put in a room to bleed to death?

I am currently reading this wonderful book by @Koenraad_Elst which gives amazing insight abt the defence of Godse and exposes the blunders commited by Gandhi (I refuse to use Mahatma), have decided that will be tweeting extracts from the same as I go along. #KnowYourLegacy
Untill now almost all the works published on Gandhi have been hagiographies with none really questioning Gandhi on some hard facts and hence this book comes as something fresh.. #KnowYourLegacy @muglikar_ @indiantweeter @TrueIndology
This book also provides an opportunity for the next gen to learn abt the mistakes commited during the freedom struggle and more importantly also abt the fact that it was not a single person or party which helped us attain independence #KnowYourLegacy @muglikar_ @TrueIndology
