Now that the glorification of #Mughals is finally being struck down from Indian history textbooks, here are some important events that need to be included in: Image
1) Destruction of Nalanda to remind Hindus of how the ahimsa philosophy didn't help monks at their hour of need and how it is important to arm oneself and train in the art of war and defence. Pacifism does not work in the real world and will get you killed. Image
2) Second Battle of Tarain to remind the Hindus that even if you spare your enemy, the enemy will not spare you so finish off your enemies when the chance is at hand. The "granting abhaya to sharanāgat" attitude doesn't work with Samuday Vishesh. Image

@sikka_harinder Thread ✍️
No doubt our #Sikhs sacrificed their lives for Sarbat Da Bhala, but what have we really got in return? Only Deceit & false promises.
This deception has happened to our Sikhs whose Courage, Sacrifice and Patriotism are World-renowned.

As the #Khalistan movement is spreading, I as a responsibile Sikh who was never tought any difference between Hindus and Sikh by my family stands uprooted. Today I'm presenting you some measures and want the government to look into this with utmost responsibility. 1. There are
100's of channels running propagandas within India with shorts gloryfying Jarnail Singh Bhindrawala as a saint and martyrd who fought against the army who were trying to destroy the Golden Temple and lost his life defending the Darbar sahib but they don't tell why the army
stormed the Golden Temple at first place? Because JSB was hiding inside it.
2. They show how the Akal Thakt was destroyed which was immensely shameful by the Government of Indira Gandhi, but did'nt they killed her?Isn't the revenge being taked so why not to move on and live a

The idea of #Khalistan was created by politician Jagjit Singh Chohan after he lost an #election in 1969 and went to #UK where he was tapped by #ISI just like Hizbul Mujahideen chief #Syed Salhuddin, who too lost an election.
He then went to #Pakistan to meet Yahya Khan in 1971 who funded him to start #Khalistan movement.

Chohan lost election because he & his ideology was REJECTED by #Punjab. Today, this junk ideology is supported by:

The latest victim of the growing hate for all things related to #Dharmic faiths. After attacking or co-opting all number of #Hindu traditions, it's now the turn of a micro-minority : the #Jain faith and being #vegetarian in general. SouthAsian vegetarians be warned! 1/n
During the public comments section of the @SeattleCouncil meeting on 2/14, supporters of the proposed #Caste ordinance turned their ire on the "militant vegetarianism" of #Jains. Hear the sound byte to understand the outright hate being mainstreamed!
Ironically the long and ancient tradition of #vegetarianism among SOME #Hindus, #Jains, #Sikhs and #Buddhists is under fire-even as western society as a whole discovers the benefits of a #plantbased diet and #MeatLessMonday proliferates. 3/n

Who is an Ex-McSikh?
Any Punjabi who has quit #McSikhi (Macauliffe’s Sikhi), and has reconnected w/ #Sikhi of our #Gurus

Who are #McSikhs?
Most modern-day Punjabis- those born into Sikh Panth, & Hindus from mixed Sikh-Hindu heritage, and/or culture (most Punjabi #Hindus)
What do #McSikhs follow?
#McSikhi (Macauliffe’s Sikhi)

What is #McSikhi?
#McSikhi (Macauliffe’s Sikhi) is the Modern Anglicized Distorted (MAD) #Sikhi…largely disconnected from Sikhi of our Gurus. #MADSikhi
#McSikhi was created by British colonials with the help of their Indian stooges (Singh Sabha,Tat Khalsa etc.). This was done after the fall of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s #KhalsaRaj to the British colonials.

Before #McSikhi, Punjabis practiced #Sikhi of our Gurus.

There was nothing like #BandiChorrDivas. You engineered it to further divide Hindu & Sikhs for your cynical politics —not caring damn about what’ll be the spiritual costs of weaning Sikhs from their roots and larger culture and festivities.

Here’s a thread, Hallelujah!
Here’s handwritten letter by Guru Tegh Bahadur, asking the congregation of Pak Pattan to visit him for DIWALI!
He was the son of Guru Hargobind. So you know, but 9th Guru didn’t, that there was some Bandi Chorr Divas regarding his father. Really?! ImageImage
Then here’s letter by Guru Hargobind’s grandson, Guru Gobind Singh Ji himself. Dated 5 Oct 1699, or AFTER formation of Khalsa.
He too is asking congregation of Naushera Pannuan to visit him for DIWALI 🪔. NOT some #BandiChorrDivas. You know better than Dashmesh Pita, again? Image

In #Afghanistan, #India blew $2bn on building hospitals, dams, highways, parliament and more. So, they kept us out of resolution talks but included #Pakistan

Now, we reward them with thousands of tonnes of free wheat. Now they’re killing the remaining handful of #Hindus & #Sikhs
One of our Prime Ministers got our soldiers butchered to defend the integrity of Sri Lanka. He got blown to pieces for that.
This PM is busy bailing them out of bankruptcy and Chinese debt-trap with billions of US dollars of Indian taxpayers.
And they let in a Chinese spy-warship
We give #China $100 Bn/year in imports for illegal occupation of our territory, arming #Pakistan and kicking us on the border to encroach further.
We gave another $100 Bn/year to the #Arab sheikhdoms to humiliate us on our internal issues like democracy, free speech and #Kashmir

#Hindu #Funerary Monuments - Chhatri

Chhatri is a memorial chapel built over a #tomb found throughout the region of #Rajasthan, #MadhyaPradesh and #Maharashtra. These memorials commemorate the death of rulers, their consorts, relatives and the elite. 1/🧵
If Samadhis were funerary monuments of saints in #Hindus, Chhatris were #Rajput's choice of the memorial. They made sure that the memory of the chivalry of their ancestors passed on to the next generations. Though, all Chhatris did not necessarily contain the mortal remains. 2/
Chhatri i.e. umbrella, first appeared as a canopy above the tomb in #Islamic #architecture. #Hindu kings transformed the tomb into Chhatri. By the 16th C, Rajput courts had started building Chhatris. It was a place where a noble was cremated, memorialized and later worshipped. 3/

@divya_16_ The British started the effort to create divisions among Indian sects. Their first attempt was on translating the Guru Granth Sahib (again) in a manner which creates separateness between Hindus/Sikhs

@divya_16_ Another aspect was giving the Sikhs a martial status with increased enrollment in the British Army. This encouraged many Hindus to make their 1st born a Sikh

@divya_16_ As Sikhs started migrating abroad, institutions were created here to amplify the separateness between Hindus and Sikhs

Academic research focuses on that.

"Sikhs are Not Hindus" is drilled into their mind and narratives invented

Facts About #Sikhism
{SIK-ism} is a monotheistic religion that began over 500 years ago in the #Punjab region of #India. However, it remains one of the world’s least understood faith traditions. #Sikhs are always eager to educate people about their beliefs
and practices. And that means there are some really great resources out there to help kids learn more about it.
