Sir what is ur stand on the #unsecular targeting of #Hindus at every festival & the present propaganda of #rape as being exclusively #Hindu?

This is not only propaganda against a faith but also promotion of #crimeagainstwomen being #promoted against #Hindu #Women specifically
especially those women who will step out to celebrate or help revive economy via festival shopping.
Is there not a threat being sent out to all Hindu women to not celebrate the only women empowerment festival ?
It is believed one such promoter of #rape during #Hindu #festivals is a member of ur organisation ?
To comply with the #ConstitutionOFIndia , i would like to ask if the police complies with the aspect of religious definition of not being a threat to society

When u are as intelligent as @akshaykumar , u think that all the money for flight tickets, hotel & travel is taken by the mandir ?

When he makes payments to people for organising his travel & stay, he does not find a "man-dir" in his travel agents heart or the staff that is
catering or the stewardess in the flight or the engineer or pilot or the business that employs many people with a stable job so they don't have to beg & can fulfill their duty to their family, they , are people #akshaykumar could not find a man-dirr in? Na!
Working human,
don't have man-dir....begging & making people dependant on @akshaykumar s mercy, only then there is "man-dir"..Jo izzat sey sar upar kar kay roti kamata hai aur inke pairon may gir kar inko maibaap nahiee bolta, he is not having the man-dirr in his heart?

HOL on the GRA Today.
First up Lord Hunt. He is clearly aware that lots of the guidance is not in compliance with the law. Baroness Berridge seems overly keen to avoid legal challenges to current policy documents.
Answer ignores the question re guidance and instead focus is in making it easier. I will add details at the end which show the process for changing your legal sex is already lax and disregards women’s rights and interests.
I wish Lord Hunt was explicit about which group has been intimidated and no-platformed. It is #Women. Transgender people have avoided public debate because their ideology doesn’t stand up to public scrutiny. . Women are banned, intimidated & attacked. We are not the aggressors.

In May, the Ministry of Home Affairs commissioned a #committee for reforms in our criminal #laws. In simple words, a #committee to rewrite all our criminal #laws.

Experts fear that the committee will dilute safeguards that exist to prevent unfair prosecutions & wrongful convictions. Several #lawyers, #activists, & academics have raised concerns about the #committee and called for it to be disbanded. But why? Let's take a look ⬇️

After access to finance, another big obstacle to agroecology is *ACCESS TO #LAND & #WATER* 🌳🚰

📰This month we published 'The Added Value(s) of #Agroecology: Unlocking the potential for transition in West #Africa'

🔎 The research shows why land & water are fundamental 👇🏿

Rapid #population growth, urban sprawl, and land grabbing have created unprecedented pressures on #land and #water resources in West #Africa. Moreover, land laws, often rooted in the colonial era, have generally failed to protect customary tenure and land use.

In fact, between 2000 & 2012, some 3 million hectares of land were subject to large-scale #land acquisitions across nine West African countries.

🔎In #Senegal alone, 650,000+ ha were granted to investors between 2007 & 2016 – equivalent to 16% of the country's arable land❗️

Re-amplifying this message from a relative who shared her story on Facebook.
#Indigenous #women #indigenouswomen #mmiw

Full Quote Thread:
“I am now 73 years old. I was at Indian residential school from age 11-15. I had to work in the infirmary, where there were many sick and hungry children. I’d steal food like peanut butter and bread to feed them. A lot of kids died there."
"I had to handle the dead children — wrapping them to be buried. Once I got caught speaking my native language. I wasn’t aware my language was different. My punishment was having four fingernails pulled out. At residential school we all received numbers. I was known as #702."

Whether it is a former president of Islamic Republic of Pakistan or the current CCPO of the capital of Pakistan’s largest province, the mindset of our male dominated society hasn’t changed in the last four decades.
#Rape #motorwayincident… via @nayadaurpk
“You must understand the environment in Pakistan … This has become a money-making concern. A lot of people say if you want to go abroad and get a visa for Canada or citizenship and be a millionaire, get yourself #raped.”
~President Musharraf
From #BenazirBhutto to #AsmaJahangir to #MukhtarMai and thousands of unnamed #women made it possible to force the successive parliaments to make changes in Hudood Ordinance. Whatever rights they have now, because of their own struggle.
