I wrote this to a #BJP supporter who wanted to know my political position. I am expanding and sharing it here.

1. BJP is as corrupt and inefficient as #Congress, but it gets a free pass because it is successfully advancing the cause of #Hindu #majoritarianism.

2. Examples are #Rammandir, #kashivishvanathtemple, #Article370, #TripleTalaq, #UCC, #CAANRC, #Cowslaughter bans, random #lynchings of Muslims, ban on #Azan in public, etc. A majority of Hindus in India support these, as they believe these will "put Muslims in their place."

3. In fact, #Corruption under the BJP is likely to be far worse than under Congress rule, because the media (which is now entirely under the control of Modi's corporate cronies like A&A) simply refuses to investigate any BJP corruption scams. Examples: #Vyapam, #Rafale...

Are Democrats more tolerant of Republicans than Republicans are of Democrats?

We surveyed ~500 people to investigate.

Here's what we found.

#diversity #politics #tolerance Image
Oppositional Political Group

"Which political group do you think is most different/opposed to your own political views?"

We limited the sample to Republicans and Democrats who selected either the Republican or Democratic parties (N=474).
Political Intolerance

We asked people how irritated they'd be if a member of the political party they most opposed was dating a member of their family, their neighbor, co-worker, or local elected official.

We then averaged their answers to get an overall tolerance score.

1/50 #Science is an ongoing process that serves to investigate phenomena, gain new insights or "correct prior knowledge" and this only works in #discourse. This includes diversity of #Opinion, #tolerance and a broad debate space. This is a large thread.
2/50 "#trust the science" is in my view the most #antiscience statement ever. #Questioning science is how you do #Science. This thread gives some examples and further questions.…
3/50 What about good ##scientific #Practice? I found a glaring example here (of all things, in what I consider to be a rush to #vaccine #approval). #blotgate…

How has Bharatavarsha come to be known for #Diversity? What is the nature of #Tolerance Hindus have? How do we view ‘Other’ #Faiths? Do the Bharateeya societies need to be managed from outside such as ‘Secularism’ so that we dont persecute others?

A #Thread !

In order to respond to this, we need to start from the Civilizational fundamental - something that has remained constant throughout in all these centuries across all Bharateeya Communities.

Including the Jaina-s and Bouddha-s.

‘Purushartha’ is that Civilizational fundamental common across centuries.
- All have rights to fulfil their needs/desires (Artha/Kama - AK)
- Resource limitation leads to AK-Conflicts
- Dharma resolves AK-Conflicts
- Dharma is created & sustained by our pursuit of the Sacred

Thrilled to share my research from Dan Littman's lab at @nyulangone, online today in @Nature. If you are interested in the differentiation of CD4 T cell programs and the mucosal iTreg response, this is for you. #Treg, #ILC3, #Tolerance,, A 🧵 /1
CD4 T cell programs govern immune responses, directing inflammation or tolerance. It is widely accepted that classical DCs (cDC) present microbial peptides on MHCII to activate and direct the differentiation of all CD4 T cell programs. Our results challenge this dogma. /2
We show that both the tolerogenic iTreg and the inflammatory Th17 responses to gut microbes are initiated by two distinct antigen-presenting cell (APC) subsets, other than cDC. And what about cDC? Our data suggest that they initiate the T follicular helper (Tfh) response. /3

(Thread Post | थ्रेड पोस्ट)

We are exploring the distinction between #unity and #uniformity...
हम #एकता और एकरूपता के बीच के अंतर पर गौर कर रहे हैं...
The distinction between seems to be in each word's relationship with #tolerance and #acceptance.
जहां तक हमे दिखता है, दोनों शब्दों के बीच का अंतर सहिष्णुता और स्वीकृति के साथ उनके संबंध में पता चलता है।
#Uniformity is about being alike, with less room for our #differences. We can see that it has relevance in some places, such as setting up structures for organising things.

Precedent from history It is Patriarch Sophronius invited Hazrat Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) to pray in the courtyard of the church. Hazrat Umar refused and instead prayed outside the church. (Ibn Khaldun) #HagiaSophia #Tolerance #Islam Image

What is the #racistlogic?

#Americans allow me a criticism: the more you define people as African-American, Caucasian, Italian-American, Latin American and all other possible variations, you will always be reinforcing a racist view, even when you have a good view of these people+
It is in this type of language that serves as fuel for the construction of a world view, often unconscious. Tell me, what difference does it make whether someone who robbed the store was a #blackguy or a #whiteguy? To identify him? As if it helped something...+
I grew up in a state of #southernBrazil, more ethnically homogeneous and, in my adolescence, I moved to the country's economic center, #SãoPaulo, where miscegenation is great and, I still lived, for three years in Cidade Universitária (#USP), where there were Africans, Europeans+

#Hinduism is crumbling!

Avoid and criticise lethal forces of violence and intimidation in order to avoid it from degradation. Convince people about its pure richness. We can't bear threats in the name of such great forces by corrupting the very ideals of its existence

Our beliefs determine our thoughts and attitudes about life, which in turn direct our actions. By our actions, we create our destiny. Beliefs about sacred matters- God, soul and cosmos- are essential to one's approach to life.

Hindus believe many diverse things, but there are a few bedrock concepts on which most Hindus concur. The following nine beliefs, though not exhaustive, offer a simple summary of Hindu spirituality:

#Update #Antisemitic Incident!

#Germany #Gießen #Buchenwald

It was an incident that made headlines far beyond the borders of the 14,000-inhabitant city of #Grünberg (#Gießen).
At the beginning of November, it became known that several students from Theo-Koch School had #played and #sung #Antisemitic songs on their way back from a visit to the memorial in the former #Buchenwald #concentrationcamp near #Weimar.
Even then, the school announced the #consequences. Now school #community has turned to the public - with an #advertisement in a regional #newspapers. In the #ad, which appeared under the heading "Zero #Tolerance with #AntiSemitism",

Today I’m going to discuss an important and frequently misunderstood topic among physicians of all specialties, that of narcotic tolerance. A thread. #pain #chronicpain #tolerance 1/x
If someone is on chronic opioid therapy, they may present with conditions that require additional therapy. Whether it is a recent surgery, a flareup of their chronic condition, or a new injury, you should realize that despite their current medication regimen, 2/x
they may require additional therapy to relieve their pain. They have built up a tolerance to narcotics. This means they need more of the drug to obtain the same analgesic effect. 3/x

#WhyWeResist (THREAD) Renowned spiritual leader John Neuhas once said:
"Genuine #tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences w/in a bond of #civility & #respect." #CampaignforCivility 1/
Neuhas was not completely right. #Fascists, #WhiteSupremacists, Nazis, bigots, etc. lambast progressives for not tolerating their views. But hateful extremists use #tolerance merely as a tool to gain acceptance & obtain power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 2/
Once fascists & bigots are in power, they vilify all who are different, all who dare to disagree. They only care about one thing: consolidating their power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 3/
