The #SupremeCourtOfIndia has made some strong remarks about the abuse and weaponization of the #EnforcementDirectorate for political purposes.

It has also strongly censured a lower court judge in a case where bail was not given.

The Supreme Court reminded the lower court judge of a fundamental principle of #jurisprudence: bail is the norm, jail is the exception. The Court made the scathing observation that the said judge should go back to law school.

These are only two examples of how #BJP governments have been abusing power and bending the law to suit their desired ends.

One could point to the extrajudicial measure of "#bulldozer justice," which has been practiced by the BJP governments in #UP, #MP, and in #Delhi.

Since #WWII, #USA has used #USdollar hegemony to transfer domestic crises, harvest world #wealth and undermine the economic and financial stability of other countries through armed conflicts, financial wars, and trade wars.

Since March 2022, #FederalReserve has raised interest rates 6X. On 2 Nov, its 75-point rate hike and sharp #USdollar appreciation caused global #currency depreciation, capital outflows, rising debt servicing costs, hiked imported inflation and currency/debt crises of countries.
How this #KhazarianMafia #SCAM all started: At the latter part of #WWII, #USA took the opportunity to hoard tons of #gold and led the establishment of Bretton Woods system based on a peg between #USdollar and gold, thus establishing US dollar as "global hard #currency".

1. I reported on the first Russo-Ukrainian war starting with the Maidan Jan 2014. After Merkel & Macron's Minsk I and II, I focused on Syria in a belief that ISIS was a Russian and Iranian operation to destroy Syrian Sunnis political unity. I worked to arm and assist the Kurds.
2. The force grew and establishment of the #SDF brought #Sunni #Arabs, #Christians & #Turkmen to join a single umbrella force with US airpower taking back large parts of #Syria. They still hold it much of it but #Putin gave large parts to #Erdogan who folded in ISIS & Al-#Qaeda
3. and along with #Russia, #Turkey, #Iran and #Assad act as a sort of overwatch. With US SOF and Bradleys from the 4th ID there as democracy's last hope.

When the Battle for Raqqa started in 2017, I observed ISIS military leadership made up of mostly Chechens started to leave.

#Thread on the Arab Invasions of India, which took place before the famous bin-Qasim's invasion of Sindh.

This thread will narrate the story of hitherto-unsung *series of Hindu victories*, maintained for almost a century!

#Hindutva #HinduVictories #Sindh #India #Arabs
610 CE: Prophet Muhammad had first revelation of Islam. Till 630, he went on to increase his followers & gain control of Mecca.

632: Abu Bakr was made caliph after Muhammad died. 634: Two years later, Umar I became caliph after Abu Bakr's death. Umar I reigned till 644.
~636/637: During Umar I's reign, the first ever Arab invasion of India took place! It was a naval attack on Thane (nr Mumbai), ruled by Chalukya Pulakeshin II (one of the most ambitious Hindu rulers of ancient India)

The attack was repelled, with Hindu victory over Arabs!

How did getting a #PhD harmed your career?
This question was put to me on another forum.
I am sharing my answer for the benefit of this community.
Interesting to read such pessimistic accounts of life again and again! I think if the word goes out, most of the universities will be facing a shortage of students and hence that leads to a lockdown / shut down or a possible global academic research meltdown.
So let us not overdo this criticism!

I would like to answer this from a knowledge capital formation and a global development perspective, based on my interaction with PhD degree holders across various nations of the world.

In 1936, Arabs revolted against Britishers & Jews. The Peel Commission formed by British studied the cause & presented 2 independent state solution, where Arabs were offered 80% of disputed territory & Jews would get remained 20%. Surprisingly Jews accepted but the Arabs didn't.
In 1947 again like Peel Commission @UN voted for 2 state solution to stop the conflict. Again Jews accepted the offer but this time #Arabs declared #war on #Israel.

Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon & Syria launched an attack on Israel. Israel defended herself bravely & won the war.

.@EuroMedoPt received an unprecedented number of Whatsapp screenshots of threats to kill #Arabs circulated among right-wing #Israeli citizens and empowered by the Israeli police.
This rhetoric and hate threats pose an imminent threat to the #Arab minority in #Israel, who already suffered from discrimination, neglect and crime over the past years.
Last month, @hrw issues a report titled "Threshold Crossed", accusing Israel of committing crimes of apartheid and persecution against the Palestinian population within Israel and in the Palestinian territories.

In 1920, the "Nabi Musa" celebrations took place on April 4, coinciding with #Passover and the Greek Orthodox #Easter.
Amin al-Husseini, who was then at the beginning of his career, and Araf al-Araf stirred up the celebrating crowd with enthusiastic hate speech that day.
As a result, after the traditional prayer at the end of the holiday, the incited #Arab crowd marched from the mosque in the Judean Desert, 20 kilometers from #Jerusalem, to the homes of the #Jews in Old Jerusalem, shouting "Adbah al-Yehud" (Slaughter the Jews).
And a call that later turned out to be correct - "a-Daula Mana" ("The (British) government is with us").
The #Arab crowd shouted "Independence Independence" & sang: "#Palestine is our land - the #Jews are our dogs." During all this time, #Arab

Today, #Israel馃嚠馃嚤 has more #Arab allies than #Turkey馃嚬馃嚪 or #Iran馃嚠馃嚪. Premature to write off moderate Arabs. That could be what #Obama administration wanted by supporting extremist takeover in Middle East. The opposite has happened. Now there is a push back. Israel & Arabs favor it.
Erdogan's charisma, Islamist allies, & Turkey's soft power make him a key player. Iran's expansionism is based on weaponizing non-Iranian Shia communities. Both examples represent forms of religious extremism. Israel & Gulf offer a new model for the future of the Middle East.
#Turkey is a #NATO ally, a leading #Muslim success story as long as it steers clear of extremism. Half of #Iran cabinet are #US graduates, but it's model is not attractive in the Middle East, promoted by shady money and guns. A third model is presented by #AbrahamAccords.

1. I missed @maddow today and just watched the interview with @jrpsaki. She made a pronouncement in the @StateDept presser 2014 that changed my life. She announced the #YPG #YPJ were not considered listed within #PKK #FTO designation and the next day, I went to war against #ISIS.
2. I knew they would win. But they needed our help then and they need it now. Too many times we have betrayed the #Kurds and it's more than Kurds in the new #Syria in #NES we will betray. #Sunni #Arabs, #Christians & #Ezidi can create #peace with the #Alawi with strong US support
3. the extortion practiced by #Assad will become meaningless. People are tired of ##war and #Turkey-backed #Islamists have got to go. Assad and the Russians can't do it because Assad represents an existential threat to Sunni #Druze, Kurds, Ezidi and #Christian #Syrians.

It was the 2nd time only (the 1st in 829 CE).

English climatologist HH Lamb (1966) deduced Siberian-origin anticyclones blew south and then north, which caused the cold air to contract, get denser, weigh more, and thus increase surface air pressure over the Nile.
Over in #England in 1010, Eilmer of Malmesbury, a Benedictine monk, decided to fly.

He just forgot to add a tail, and instead glided down after ~15聽seconds.

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)
