Many liberals are amazed that people believe the obvious lies that the Modi government puts out about China. There's a clear inconsistency between Modi saying that China didn't take any territory and army commanders regularly meeting their Chinese counterparts to negotiate.

They're practically begging the Chinese to leave, and the Chinese are refusing. If that were not the case, there would be no need to talk.

Also, the #Indian #Military position MUST BE WEAK, otherwise we would have kicked out the #Chinese. We simply cannot.

So why isn't the Indian public angry with #Modi?

For the same reason they were not angry with #Nehru in 1962.


Indians have a tendency to place their heroes on a pedestal and worship them. As long as they are on that pedestal, they can do no wrong.

Savarkar and Me:

"Nhe majhshi nhe parat matrubhumi la".....

When I was a kid, my Appa (maternal grandfather) used to take me to the seashore and hum this song. I used to hum it with him, feeling a sense of pride swell up inside me. (1/n)
My Appa was a RSS Karyakarta in his youth, fiercely patriotic, extremely disciplined but at the same time could love Morarji Desai and Jawaharlal Nehru without differentiating.
As he grew up in the ranks of RSS he figured that they were more than just a "Swayamsevak Sangh" and quickly got out of it at the first opportunity.... thats another story for some other day.

I wrote this to a #BJP supporter who wanted to know my political position. I am expanding and sharing it here.

1. BJP is as corrupt and inefficient as #Congress, but it gets a free pass because it is successfully advancing the cause of #Hindu #majoritarianism.

2. Examples are #Rammandir, #kashivishvanathtemple, #Article370, #TripleTalaq, #UCC, #CAANRC, #Cowslaughter bans, random #lynchings of Muslims, ban on #Azan in public, etc. A majority of Hindus in India support these, as they believe these will "put Muslims in their place."

3. In fact, #Corruption under the BJP is likely to be far worse than under Congress rule, because the media (which is now entirely under the control of Modi's corporate cronies like A&A) simply refuses to investigate any BJP corruption scams. Examples: #Vyapam, #Rafale...

India's so-called "liberals" have been shedding copious tears on the "injustice" of the SC verdict on the #ShivSena case.

Indian liberals are brainless and shameless.

The Shiv Sena was, is, and will be a bigoted party, whichever flavour you pick - Uddhav, Raj, or Shinde.

Don't forget that #UddhavThackeray fought the election along with the #BJP. He split with the #BJP only when they refused to yield the CM post to him.

The alliance with the #Congress and #NCP was never about principle, it was for power. This was an unprincipled power grab.

This is still the same Shiv Sena that supported the Babri Masjid demolition, that supported the installation of the portrait of #Savarkar opposite that of #Gandhi in Parliament (kinda like #Trump saying there are good folks on both sides), that engineered the #1993riots.

There has been a lot of outrage about the scrubbing of #MaulanaAzad from the history textbooks in India by the BJP, and justifiably so.

A thread 🧵. (1/n)
But for the last 75 years, nobody seems to have been outraged by the fact that the greatest Indian public intellectual of the 21st century, Dr. BR #Ambedkar, was practically scrubbed from history textbooks by Congress governments and BJP governments alike.

Sure, when I studied about Ambedkar in Maharashtra State Board textbooks, they told me that he was the author of the #indianconstitution and had grown up enduring great #castediscrimination. But THAT WAS ALL.

Dear friends, #Congress (#INC) likes to claim that it "fought" for #India's independence & refers to its political opponents as #fascists. How many of you know that only did #INC *not* EXCLUSIVELY "fight" for #Independence (AND #Gandhi was "happy" to settle for #DominionStatus)+
But also the party known as #INC by #IndiraGandhi was *not* even the same party that was formed in #1885 ? A thread about the #Congress follows: +

1921 Malabar riots, Gandhi and a Malayalam Movie:
Malabar riots of 1921 often called the “Moplah rebellion” is a topic that was not discussed openly in Kerala until recently (“Moplah” is a term used to refer to Kerala Muslims)
Moplah riots have always been whitewashed by the Congress and the left historians as freedom struggle against the British. However, the reality is something else!
Any sensible society would know that reopening old wounds can only disturb the goodwill that exists in the society between various communities. Therefore, these riots were never a part of political discourse at least in the last 30-40 years.

Do watch and comment.

The first episode with over 2.6 lakh views was on the sensational #TheBawlaMurderCase (1925) which led to the abdication of an Indian king. You can buy my book on this crime here:

#MahatmaGandhi had a complex relationship with Maharashtra, where his mentor Gopal Krishna Gokhale hailed from.

This thread is about #Gandhi and his relationship with #Marathi (and #Maharashtra)

#Maharashtra produced some of his staunchest supporters like Acharya Vinoba Bhave and Sitaram ‘Appasaheb’ Patwardhan, who was referred to as the ‘Konkan Gandhi,’ and his most bitter critics, like Dr #BabasahebAmbedkar and V.D. #Savarkar.
Eventually, a man from #Maharashtra--#NathuramGodse, killed #Gandhi.

#Gandhi वो आखिरी दिन..
30 जनवरी, 1948
द हिंदू संवाददाता

गांधी जी ने प्यारे लाल से नोआखली की स्थिति पर चर्चा की, जो कि वहीं से आए थे। प्यारे लाल का मानना था कि वहीं अल्पसंख्यक हिंदुओं की समस्या का समाधान यही था कि वह व्यवस्थित तरीके से पूर्वी पाकिस्तान से निकल कर भारत आ जाएं।
#Gandhi वो आखिरी दिन..
30 जनवरी, 1948
द हिंदू संवाददाता
बापू इससे असहमत थे, उनका मानना था कि तब पू. पाकिस्तान (आज बांग्लादेश) में हिंदुओं और बाकी अल्पसंख्यकों को वहीं टिकना चाहिए था और करो या मरो के सिद्धांत का पालन करना चाहिए था।
#Gandhi वो आखिरी दिन..
ये वही सिद्धांत था, जिसके पालन से बापू ने उत्तर भारत, कलकत्ता, नोआखली, दिल्ली में शांति स्थापित करने में सफलता पाई थी। बापू ने कहा, 'हो सकता है कि अंत में उनमें से कुछ ही लोग बचें, लेकिन कमज़ोरी में से शक्ति प्राप्त करने का और कोई तरीका नहीं हो सकता है।

Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and M.K. Gandhi's debate on Hinduism and Caste.

(PART-1) 🧵
M.K. Gandhi (1/3)

The Vedas, Upanishads, smritis and puranas, including the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, are the Hindu scriptures. There is no finite list. Every generation has added to the list.
M.K. Gandhi (2/3)

Therefore, that everything printed or even found handwritten is not scripture. The #smritis, for example, contain many things that can never be accepted as a word from God. Thus, many texts which Dr #Ambedkar cites from smritis cannot be considered authentic.

The Moplah Revolt of 1921.

What #Savarkar got was not a 'stipend' or 'pension,' as Congress alleged, but an allowance from the British Raj. Others who got such an allowance from the British Raj were the Bose brothers Subhas & Sarat Chandra, Mahatma Gandhi & so many other Indian freedom fighters. A small 🧵
When the #British imprisoned #Indians or held them as detenus or internees, usually in cases where there were no charges & no trials (as when Savarkar was interned in Ratnagiri from 1924 to 1937), they paid a monthly allowance to them for 'loss of income' so they (in terms of..
food etc) and/or their families could maintain themselves. Govt statue allowed them to have money from the public purse for this purpose. When the Raj, in the early 1930s, decided to drastically cut these allowances, Subhas Chandra Bose...
