Dear PM @narendramodi & HM @AmitShah,

I know my plea is gonna fall on deaf ears & blind eyes but are

many other innocent #Hindus mere statistic in your political power lust?
Am afraid this will stop only with beheading (Shiv-Krishna forbid) of #NaveenJindal &/or #NupurSharma or may be not. #SarTanSeJuda gang has tasted blood.

Naveen actually is in greater danger.

#Jehadis don't Forget or Forgive. They can bid their time.

Sadly #Hindus won’t know what to do?

Do Hindus know how to avenge such killings? Hindus are not conditioned that way.

Not that it can't be done but Hindus are stuck in a self-inflicted quagmire.

#Modi on one side, #LeLis on other & #TINA in middle.

One can only try to understand #NarendraModi's moves in hindsight. It is now clear #JagdeepDhankhar's actions as #WestBengal Governor had the tacit approval of Delhi. So, it is to be expected that the next Governor will follow his footsteps. So, who are the probables? 2/n
2/n Will hazard 3 guesses. #arifmohammadkhan, #mukhtarabbasnaqvi or someone with an Intel/Security background like TN Guv Ravi. Khan and Naqvi coming from minorities background have an edge. Naqvi is fluent in Bengali. He can play the #JagdeepDhankhar role better 3/n #WestBengal
3/n if it is #MukhtarAbbasNaqvi for reasons mentioned above - he will have a larger mandate. What can it be? Only prediction that can be made is that the game in #WestBengal will heat up again in the run up to 2024. Ebar notun "Khela Hobey". #JagdeepDhankhar #MamataBanerjee

Remember Rizwanur Rahman ? Remember how a movement was built up around this incident and people were fooled into believing that #CPIM was anti-Muslim ? Remember Rizwanur's brother Rukbanur Rahman who has been a #TMC MLA since 2011 ?

Well he is in the news & not bcoz of any good
deed but he is all over #WestBengal mainstream media for having accepted huge amount of money as bribe in exchange of false promise of giving jobs to poor helpless youths of his constituency. Image
According to ABPLive Rahman had taken 24 lakh from 5 job-seekers & had promised them jobs as Upper-Primary teachers. He had taken this money way back in 2016 & kept dangling the carrot of jobs in front of these impuissant marginalized people…

On 7th July 1855, a group of Santhal tribals assembled in a field in #Jharkhand and declared themselves free. This act of defiance triggered an armed rebellion. The tremors it created were felt a century later, in a movement that drew the attention of the world. 1/9 Image
The Santhal Revolt of 1855 pitted the Santhal tribes in the forests of #WestBengal, #Bihar, Jharkhand and #Odisha against local zamindars, who were supported by the #British. For the Santhals, it was a fight to retain the right to their lands. 2/9 Image
These rights had been taken away by the East India Company, which in the 18th century began clearing the forests in which the Santhals lived, to grow cash crops like indigo and poppy. Things grew worse when the Zamindari System was introduced in 1793. 3/9 Image

*How #SriLanka got ruined*

Lankans voted for #Rajapakshas knowing very well what they did in the past, including corruption, selling out national assets to #China, #dynastic politics and all.

They still voted for them because Rajapakshas promised things they could not refuse.
1. Their #GST, called VAT Tax, on all products was reduced to 8%, thus making everything cheaper in one stroke. (It also killed the govt revenue). People loved things getting cheaper.
2. The minimum #incometax threshold was changed from 5 Lakhs per annum to 30 Lakhs! Very few earned more than 30L!
A very large part of the population became #tax exempt. This was very popular among the salaried class.
