#اردو اور #پنجابی پر لعن طعن ہورہی ہے اس میں نہ اردو اور پنجابی کا کوئ قصور ہے اور نہ ہی یہ دو زبانیں بولنے والوں کا قصور ہے بلکہ اردو کو سرسید، جناح ، مولویوں نے مذموم سیاسی و مذہبی مقاصد کے لیئے استعمال کیا اس کی وجہ سے تنازع بنا - زبانوں پر تعصب شرعا” حرام ہے

#SNC #AikNisab
صحیح بخاری کی حدیث سے تمام زبانوں کا احترام واجب ہوگیا ۔ مگر تحریک پاکستان کے مولانا ظفر علی خان (پنجاب) کی جہالت ملاحظہ فرمائیں کہ بغیر کسی شرعی دلیل کے جنوبی ہند کی زبانوں کو کمال بے حیائ سے “کافر” قرار دیا ہے ۔ اور یہ تلخ حقیقت شفقت محمود #SNC #AikNisab کی بھی سمجھ سے باہر ہے
آل سعود و وہابیوں سے تمام اختلاف اپنی جگہ مگر اس حقیقت سے انکار محال ہے کہ آل سعود و وہابیوں نے دنیا کی ۹۰ سے زائد زبانوں میں قرآن کا ترجمہ کروایا اور مفت تقسیم کرتے ہیں ۔ اور اس پر جناح و دو قومی نظریہ ٹولے کی جہالت واضح کرتا ہوں #SNC #AikNisab #Urdu #Punjabi #اردو #پنجابی

"Anustup"/ "অনুষ্টুপ" is a 54 year old independent #Bengali literary & cultural journal (ISSN: 0974-2697). It is now officially recognized by @ugc_india on their list of approved journals. Scholars publishing in #Bangla/#বাংলা pls consider subscribing & publishing. cc @maitreesh
Regional language journals are dying across #India. Anustup doesn't even have a decent website because it doesn't have resources. It will only sustain if more people subscribe to it. Please write to Anustup at anustuppotrika@gmail.com
And the list of people who have published in this journal will surprise you. It includes (late) Ritwick Ghatak, (late) Hemango Biswas, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Dipesh Chakrabarty, Arindam Chakrabarti, Partha Chatterjee, Maitreesh Ghatak, and many others. So do engage!

Thread:

For sometime now, liberals in #Pakistan have been peddling the demise of Two Nation Theory that provides the basis of #Pakistani statehood.

One of them is an obtuse physicist Pervez Hoodboy whose pseudo philosophy deems the 1971 secession of East Pakistan as cause.

/1
This proposition especially proves its own intellectually bankrupt, when its made while India is being ruled by #hindu nationalist #BJP.

Who’ve passed genocidal CAA & NRC laws to cancel citizenships of millions of #Indian #Muslims & when 8 million #Kashmiris are under siege.

/2
Hoodboy claims that today’s Pakistan is only half the country envisioned by our founding fathers, therefore Two Nation Theory is dead.

Besides BJP’s #hindu nationalism itself proving the Two Nation Theory, let’s consider how it influenced Bengal’s struggle for independence.

BJP's failure in winning 'intellectual' debate became most apparent in #CAA. Reason lies with party. I worked in this space 4 too long to kno how long term agendas are set. Why intellectualism is equated to #Left leaning among a section in #WestBangal & #India. 1/n
I have been consistent in saying that #CAA is a major correction to the historic neglect to human tragedies from sustained flight of #Hindu & other minority from #EastPakistan/#Bangladesh. It's unfinished job of #Partition. 2/n
#Secularism will be threatened only when #India wil institutionally discriminate between two sets of citizens, as it happened in #Pakistan & #Bangladesh not by virtue of giving citizenship 2 d discriminated/persecuted in this 2 countries born out of discriminatory principles. 3/n

Sharing a post by Bhaskar Chattopadhyay, a friend's friend who I do not know, in which he writes about his experiences of growing up as a #Bengali in #Assam in the '80s and '90s. Though I do not know him, I know and share that experience about being an insider/outsider. Thread...
//I am a Bengali. I was born in Cooch Behar (now in WB) and since my father was posted in various parts of the #NorthEast, I spent 16 years of my life in that beautiful part of the country, mostly in the lovely little town of Dibrugarh, #Assam.//
//I went to school there, had very good friends, went through all the fond and not-so-pleasant phases of teenage, a decent childhood overall. Back in the day, I sometimes overheard my parents and others talk about the 'Bongali Kheda' (roughly 'Drive the Bengalis Out') movement.//

While *most* South Asian Muslims use #Persian terms for religious concepts, Muslims in #TamilNadu & #Kerala (who trace their roots to Arab trading communities) have distinct traditions also reflected in their terminology, which freely draws from #Tamil/#Malayalam & #Sanskrit.
Instead of rozā, the #Persian term for Islamic fasting (itself a translation of #Arabic ṣawm) used in #Urdu, #Bengali, #Gujarati etc, #Tamil & #Malayalam speaking Muslims use nōmpu, lit. ceremonial fasting. The word is from a proto #Dravidian root meaning to do penance. #Ramadan
Sanskrit is used too. #Malayalam speaking Muslims commonly refer to #Ramzan as puṇya māsam, #Sanskrit for month of good merit. Nimskāram, the Malayalam counterpart of the #Persian namāz (Islamic prayer), is from #Sanskrit namaskāra (lit. prostratration, here, to a god). #Ramadan
