Thread: #MalianaMassacre a Tale of Injustice in India

It has been 36 years since 72 Muslims were brutally killed in the small town of #Maliana, in #UttarPradesh by provincial police force. On 01 April, 40 accused in the #massacre during the 1987 riots in Maliana...,
...Meerut were acquitted, while 23 accused have left this world and 30 accused are missing, against whom the trial will continue. The prosecution failed to produce sufficient evidence before the court, due to which benefit of doubt was given to the accused. #muslimsinindia
It took 36 years for the court to pronounce the verdict i.e. those who were accused in youth were acquitted in old age and children whose parents were killed have crossed puberty. Their families still await even the first glimmer of justice. #MalianaMassacre #IndianSupremeCourt

Things that changed in 🇮🇳 w Ram Janmabhoomi Movt/#Ayodhya/#BabriMasjid Demolition, a thread 🧵:

1. Daily, yearlong RW propaganda from the 80s onwards finally made most Hindu school kids esp in Hindi belt communal. 90s saw an increase in slurs & discrimination against Muslim kids
2. Post Kargil War, post-Godhra and pogrom, the victim community was blamed simply for their identity and targetting in all spheres of life escalated further.
3. Interfaith couples became unsafe on a larger scale than ever before.

#BabriMasjid #🧵- சமத்துவத் தந்தை புரட்சியாளர் #அண்ணல்_அம்பேத்கர் நினைவு நாள் - @thamizharivanAJ மீள்பதிவு.

Just after his victory in the 1984 elections, #RajivGandhi faced his first big challenge. On 23rd April 1985, the Supreme Court ordered the ex-husband of a Muslim woman from Indore, Shah Bano, to pay her maintenance under Section 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). 1/13
Shah Bano's ex-husband Mohammed Ahmad Khan had argued in the Madhya Pradesh High Court, that under Islamic Law, he had paid his divorced wife three months' maintenance, and he wasn't obliged to pay any more. 2/13
But the apex court maintained that "there is no conflict between the provisions of Section 125 and those of the Muslim Personal Law on the question of a Muslim husband's obligation to provide maintenance for a divorced wife who is unable to maintain herself". 3/13

🪡 Much of the outrage on the #HijabRow asks the naive question: “Why is it happening in #Karnataka?”

Answer: “Why are you surprised?”

The startup state was an early-stage investor in #Hindutva. Its reputation as a #Hindutva laboratory precedes #Gujarat and #UttarPradesh.
2️⃣ #BJP’s political quest for the Babri Masjid only began in the late 1980s. In #Karnataka, the ground to reclaim Baba Budangiri, a Sufi shrine in #Chikamagalur district, had been laid a decade before #Ayodhya became common parlance, in 1978.

3️⃣ In 1990, when L.K. Advani’s ‘Rath Yatra’ passed through #Karnataka, seven people died in Bidar in communal riots. But 600 km away, in and around #Bangalore, at least another 33 people died in clashes in 5 locations. It was not an accident.

The #COVID19 pandemic exacerbated Islamophobia around the globe. From #India to the U.K., #Muslims were accused of spreading the virus & evading lockdown orders.

Here is Timeline of #BabriMasjid as #BabriMasjidAwaitsJustice

1528: Babri Masjid was constructed in Ayodhya by Mir Baqi on instructions of Mughal emperor Babur.
No record of it being built over a demolished temple, nor any record of claims of site being birth place of Shri Ram
1859: Controversy began after locals start claiming #BabriMasjid as birthplace of Shri Ram.

Britishers erected a fence dividing the site. Muslims used mosque's inner court to pray, Hindus were allowed to use outer court.

1934: Damage to mosque & dome in riots, rebuilt by govt
1949: Idols were planted by Hindu Mahasabha activists inside #BabriMasjid. The mosque was then locked.

District magistrate K.K. Nayar refused to remove idols on the premise that it would lead to large-scale riots. He later joined Jan Sangh, the precursor to BJP, & elected as MP.

From #BabriVerdict :
Court says :
1. No evidence that accused incited the mob on the day of demolition.
2. As to speeches, slogans etc., made earlier by accused, court refused to accept press reports, video tapes, photos as authentic. Newspaper reports hearsay evidence.
3. Court adopts a conspiracy theory in the form of an unverified intelligence report that anti social/anti-national elements could have assembled in the area under the garb of kar sewaks and surmises that they might have created trouble. (Quite astonishing!)
4. No material to show accused raised provocative slogans.

5. Incident occurred suddenly and without provocation and accused did not themselves expect that it would happen, court says.

#BabriMasjid dispute would have been resolved much more amicably if Indian "seculars" did not falsify history to whitewash Islamic iconoclasm. This promoted Muslim victimhood rather than a spirit of remorse.

#5AugustBlackDay for liars and aggressors.…
The reason Islamists like #AIMPLB/Owaisi are upset at the #RamTemple is that it is a setback for Islamic expansionism. That even after 500 years dharma rises.

That is what the wailing is about. And Indian "seculars"? They're simply #JihadCoolies.

There is overwhelming evidence for Ram Temple, both archeological and textual. Here Tulsidas' poem documents its destruction, complete with dates. The destruction happened while Tulsidas was alive. One can barely imagine the pain it would have caused him.…

जय श्री राम।
I don't usually make threads but here are my two cents on the #RamMandir & #FaizKhan controversy:

We can't deny that Sir KK Muhammad fought for truth all his life against Jihadis & has greater contribution than most Hindus, specially like Rajeev Dhawan & DN Jha. (1)
Also, the role of political parties has been instrumental.

While BJP, as vidharmis always said "Tareekh nahi batayenge" never gave a date yet amidst all the criticism even from patrons about it just being votebank topic; clinged firmly & believe it or not, strengthened cause.(2)
Few others supportered, notable was Shivsena under Balasaheb Thackrey who openly endorsed #RamMandir & called demolition of #BabriMasjid

But list of opposing parties is long: Congress, SP, RJD, DMK, AAP and so on. Congress under #AntoniaMaino even claimed Ram as fictitious.(3)

Some folks have asked for basic information about the #BabriMasjid, so here goes.

Warning: Only read if you’re interested in history, not communal politics.

The Babri Masjid was probably built in 1528 by a general of Babur. At the time, it likely wasn’t a big deal. Babur doesn’t even mention it in his memoirs.
Babri Masjid may have been built over temple ruins, but, owing to bad and politicised archaeology, we aren’t sure.

If it was built on temple ruins, they could be Jain, Hindu, or Buddhist in origin. They also could’ve been ruins for hundreds of years by the 1520s (or not).
