#Baghdadi was similar to a man our history books conveniently chose to forget. Minhaj-us-Siraj was a trusted Turk cleric who wrote 𝘛𝘢𝘣𝘢𝘲𝘢𝘵-𝘪-𝘕𝘢𝘴𝘪𝘳𝘪. This book remains the only source of #History of Bengal in Delhi sultanate till 1259 AD, when it ends abruptly.
Tabaqat-i-Nasiri chronicles a 𝘒𝘩𝘢𝘭𝘫𝘪 worse than 𝘈𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘶𝘥𝘥𝘪𝘯. Ikhtiyar ad din Muhammad bin Bakhtiyar Khalji was a #Turkish slave from Afghanistan, in search of military opportunities.He was denied service by 𝘎𝘩𝘶𝘳𝘪𝘥s and 𝘈𝘪𝘣𝘢𝘬 of Delhi.

Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija Mufti on Friday asked whether J&K was an integral part of #India or a colony.

J&K is not a colony. It is an integral part of #India. It is #Kashmir based parties who treated India as their colony by playing the separatist card.
Iltija Mufti also said that that #Article370 had nothing to do with development.

Only a person who lives outside the state can afford to be so ignorant. Iltija Mufti lives in Chennai and enjoys all the facilities which are not available here in #Kashmir.
#Article370 and 35A were responsible for J&K's backwardness while only benefiting a select few like the separatists, politicians of mainstream political parties of #Kashmir and their families.

As late as Oct 2012, I travelled to Bihar for the first time. Ever since then, thanks to my friend, @Watervagabond, I have been regularly travelling there & reporting on floods & other related issues. A thread on #Bihar & #BiharFloods stories to keep the larger picture in mind.
@Watervagabond 73% of the total geographical area of Bihar is prone to floods. Bihar is India's most flood prone state, too. Embankments have failed to control floods. Some claim these engineering solutions are responsible for flash floods & other problems #BiharFloods…
@Watervagabond Floods in Bihar are also associated with fertility, as they bring silt that makes the soil fertile. Several poor landless farmers in live on 'diara' lands -- islands inside rivers -- to feed their families. Rivers, which bring floods, also sustain people…

🇮🇳 #Inde : investi aujourd'hui pour son deuxième mandat, @narendramodi souhaite mettre en place des réformes économiques et sociales qui feraient de lui le Reagan indien.…
🇮🇳 Cette focalisation sur les enjeux économiques et sociaux aux dépends des enjeux identitaires, si elle se confirme dans les mois à venir, pourrait créer des tensions au sein de la vaste famille des nationalistes hindous, le #SanghParivar. A suivre donc.
🇮🇳 Le nouveau cabinet de @narendramodi compte 58 membres. L'entrée la plus importante est celle de l'ancien dirigeant du @BJP4India @AmitShah au poste de ministre de l'Intérieur. Cet organisateur de génie a largement contribué aux victoires de #Modi.…

Thread on some #KeyTakeaways from #LokSabhaElections2019 results:
1. There was always a #Modi wave but the #LeLi Commentariat insisted it was an undercurrent against Modi and #BJP.
2. Losses in Rajasthan, MP and Chhattisgarh in 2018 were an aberration and not a trend. 1/n
3. Vote transfers do not happen between historically hostile parties. Anticipated vote transfer did not happen in #UP. SP-BSP #MahaGathBandhan was nonstarter.
4. Never mind the bunk peddled by pop political analysts. #India would prefers Government with single-party majority. 2/n
5. Mamata Banerjee underestimated Hindu backlash to her brazen Muslim appeasement and pandering to illegal Bangladeshi immigrants.
6. She overestimated the ability of party goons to strike fear among voters. It took 34 years for LF to unravel; TMC less than 10 years. 3/n

I feel anxious for my children because tomorrow if mob surrounds them and asks, “Are you a Hindu or a Muslim?” …they will have no answer, says actor #NaseeruddinShah
#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.

@manu1154 @kaltimevel @IamAlok_INC @GenZinfrenzy @Mayavi101 @The_veenaD @ANI @vxtandon1 @INCIndia @RahulGandhi @e_postmortem “The Hindu–German Conspiracy “ was a series of plans between 1914 and 1917 by Indian nationalist groups to attempt Pan-Indian rebellion against the British Raj during World War One 🤔

After getting a good rap on the knuckles by editors for being a lazy lurker on social media, here's course correction. I am now doing a thread of all my reportage in 2018. (@sree and @prempanicker had encouraged me to do this many years ago 🙈) Please read and share.
While urbanisation is a global trend, villagers around #Ahmedabad don't want to live in cities. Since 2012, #Gujarat government has encouraged 12 cities to swallow up some 800 villages. And now, most of them are resisting. A take on the 'Gujarat Model'.…
The two main problems for the new state of #Telangana are exemplified in
