A brief on Secularism in India by Sita Ram Goel. A Thread...

The concept of Secularism is western and denounced by Ilam and Christian. They prescribe theocracy (ruling in the name of God by priests or mullahs) where in state acts as secular arm of Church or Islam.

Christianity has reconciled itself of theocracy whereas Isalm has not. Trend in Islam has been to return to theocracy.

Word #Secularism is nowhere to be find in writings of Jawaharlal Nehru before Independence. Even in constitution of India enacted in January 1950, the...2/n
word does not find place in preamble or anywhere else. It was inserted by #IndiraGandhi in emergency she imposed in 1975-76.

Word became frequent in writing of Jawaharlal Nehru after death of Sardar Patel. The word has gained parlance in parties that have nothing in common...3/n

1/n Let's talk a bit about #Secularism in this thread.

We are told that the Western World gave us the "Secular Values" with the "Separation of State and Church (Religious Institution)" and hence State not being Religious.

But how true has it been?
2/n Till my architecture school days, I lived with the belief that the USA, UK etc are non-Christian state but the exposure to the truth baffled me, however till today they are shown as non-Christian (say Secular states).

Did you know that motto of USA comes from Bible?
3/n "In God we trust" comes from the Psalms 56.11.

Imagine, if someone proposes "Jai Siya/Shri Ram" as motto of Bharat, or even "Aham Brahmasmi".

Didn't we had bunch of people crying over "Asto ma sadgamaye..." and preaching to eat up western values?

The 2k kids are very different. My elder son who is in 8 (#CBSE) had to submit an assignment for the Social Sciences subject yesterday (which was the deadline) and was quite restless about the same.This is not the case normally as he is quite self reliant and organized.(1/8)
Ram and I stepped in to help him. The assignment demanded students to put up a picture which depicts #secularism, write a few lines about (glorifying) #secularism and further write about three major religions of India.(2/8)
My son exclaimed us saying it was you people who enlightened me about what is happening in our country in the name of #secularism and I have also read and understood about it. If I do an assignment glorifying something which I don't believe in just for the sake of marks, (3/8)

Liberal political system has been shaped during the industrial era. today it finds it difficult to deal with the ongoing revolutions in information technology.
Humans have two types of abilities- physical and cognitive.industrial machines had already outperformed humans in the job's where physical abilities were required. Now the AI, Data algorithms are outperforming humans in the job's where cognitive abilities are required

तुमचे विचार चांगले असतील तर तुम्हाला चांगल्या व्यक्तींची साथ सुद्धा मिळते,

LW किंवा RW करत बसण्यात काहीच अर्थ नसतो,
खेकड्यासारखं एकमेकांचे पाय ओढत बसून हिंदुत्वाचे विचार मांडताच येत नाही,
जातीपाती, राजकारण, याच्या दलदलीत अडकण्यापेक्षा हिंदुत्ववादी बनून विचार मांडले तरच योग्य व्यक्तींची साथ मिळते,

आपण राजकारनाच्या नादी लागून हिंदुद्वेष तर पसरवत नाही ना ?
हा प्रश्न स्वतःच्या मनाला विचारा आधी,

बाकी जय शिवराय 🙏🚩
हे वरच सर्व त्या लोकांसाठी होत ज्यांचा #Secularism धर्मनिरपेक्षता, नास्तिकता
#सर्वधम_समभाव या शब्दावर त्यांचा अधिक विश्वास आहे,

"जेवढे लोक टॅग केलेत त्यांचे विचार मला जास्त पटतात, म्हणून मी त्यांची साथ देणारच"

बाकी गुलाम, चमचे वगैरे लोकांनी मला आत्ता unfollow करावं 🙏

2020 has been filled with many challenges and our community has had to adapt in unprecedented ways.

We invite you to take a moment to look back with us at what has been an unforgettable year, and what YOU made possible. (Thread)…
At the onset of the year, the coalition convened in January to plan the strategy for Secular America Votes - 2020, which was headed up this year by @SecularStudents who did an amazing job turning out the the vote of secular students this Nov!
In February (*way back* when we could be together in person) we hosted our annual Member's Meeting with key staff from our 19 member orgs. Attendees lobbied Congress and attend a meeting of the Congressional Freethought Caucus (CFC) where they present their priorities.

Contributed to @Guardian Podcast 'Today In Focus': The murder of schoolteacher Samuel #Paty who had shown his class #cartoons of the prophet #Muhammad has rekindled a debate in #France over #secularism & the state’s role in regulating #FreeSpeech. (21'-29')
I emphasise that we can discuss the general problem of hateful #cartoons about the Prophet #Muhammad & his Muslim followers that spread collective guilt & humiliate often underprivileged #minority communities beyond acts of barbaric #terrorism. #Racism #Islamophobia #CharlieHebdo
I think that @EmmanuelMacron acted in a manner that was rash & unstatesmanlike following the vile murder of Samuel #Paty. He has effectively incorporated #cartoons mocking #Islam into its domestic policies. He defended them as part of French culture & #France’s global image.

Let me clarify why is it next to impossible for #Hindus to win this ongoing Ideological/ civilizational war with us #Muslims:

If the #Hindu cause is +1, #Islamic cause is -1, and 0 is neutral, then we #Muslims are fighting hard for -1 while U Hindus R aiming for just 0!..(1/12)
..Let me explain:

V #Muslims attack #Hinduism.
U #Hindus attack only Traitors & Pakistan!

V fight for #Islamic cause.
U fight for #Nationalist cause!

We #Muslims want #Sharia state.
You #Hindus want #Secular state! ...(2/12)
... V R fighting #Religious war.
U just fighting political war!

V vote on Islamic grounds.
U vote on #SabkaSathSabkaVikas

V #Muslims never raise voice for #KashmiriPandits but burn cities for #Rohingyas!
U #Hindus speak for not only KP but also for Sufis & Balochis! ..(3/12)

#India's obsession with Hindu #victimhood is not confined to Hindutva politicians who, one can assume, spread the canard of "Hindus under attack" for their own political agenda of power, control and coercion. This @Youtube video was posted on a family #WhatsApp group.

It shows a certain 'holy man', by his own description, a #Sanyasi telling his cheering audience a story to illustrate a) the harm caused by #secularism and b) how minority religions are favoured by the state.
It's a cock and bull tale, of course, but worth recounting to show the duplicity, the lies, the latent misogyny, the vacuous logic, the sheer vile propaganda of it all. Apparently, he is visited by a Maulvi and a Padre (!) who start arguing with him and then start beating him up!

#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)

Yesterday in Bhopal Johri Hotel
Hindu girls with M boys were in a freedom Hookah party!
Who is sponsoring these M boys for such parties?
See how young these Hindu Girls are!
Inspiration must be from #Bollywood as how to spoil life!
It's nothing but #Lovejihad
I m not sure whether this moral policing is good or bad considering the age of these girls & community of the Boyz
What do you say guys?
Some say it's privacy intrusion
But I say it's conspiracy unveiled

A big babu confirmed that the scores were rigged to produce an IAS topper from #Kashmir
Only to create an icon who'd inspire the India-haters to become patriots.
That icon AOT called #India the 'Rapistan'
It seems, such idiocy is now rolled out nationally.…
Extra marks to the #Muslims in the interviews isn't enough and also out in the open.
So, #Urdu was added as a subject for the written exams.
When even that didn't help, #Kashmiri in Urdu's script was added to the subjects.
Why not try campus hiring directly from the madrasas now?
Earlier our adversaries used #secularism to deny n deprive #Hindus
Then came '#Muslims have the first right on resources' theory
When #India woke up to these perversions and delivered an unambiguous mandate, it is the hyper patriots now robbing us blind on #UPSC and #scholarships

100s of people thronged the church in Samayanallur,Madurai Dst protesting against the forced conversion by missionaries
It seems the new Chruch is indulging in conversion activities by alluring locals with presents & various goodies 2 accept Christi@nity!
Police refused to accept any complaints lodged against these conversion mafias!
They are denying to even hear the people's grievances & Atrocities committed by these Conversion Mafias
So the people took to streets to protest
#secularism #noconversion
Why are the refusing to accept complaints
My doubt :
Is police an extended arm of Jih@dis & co@version mafias?
These Mafias has taken over all govt departments!
A converted person loses his SC/ST status & how come they have got jobs based on reservation?
