कुछ लोग बहुत कहते हैं कि गांधी मंदिर में क़ुरान तो पढ़ता था लेकिन कभी मस्जिद में गीता पढ़ने का साहस नहीं जुटा पाया. इस पर मैं क्या ही कहूँ, ज़्यादा अच्छा होगा कि ये बताऊँ की तब जब गांधी जिंदा थे तब उन्होंने इस पर क्या कहा था. ऐसे लोग तब भी थे.

पढ़ते जाइए, मज़ा आएगा.

एक उमादेवी थी. खुद को धर्मसेविका कहती थी. गांधी को एक चिट्ठी लिखी. वो मूलतः क़ुरान पढ़ने का विरोध निम्न कारणों से कर रही थी.
1. क़ुरान पढ़ने से मंदिर की मर्यादा नष्ट होती है.
2. क़ुरान पढ़ने वालों ने राक्षसों जैसा अत्याचार किया है जिसे देखते हुए इसे पढ़ना मैं हिन्दुओं के लिए महान पाप समझती हूँ.
तीसरा एवं सबसे महत्वपूर्ण - किसी मस्जिद में गीता या रामायण पढ़ने का साहस आपने किया हो ऐसा मालूम नहीं होता.

20 years to #Godhra_Carnage & they’re called victims?
#GodhraMassacre is an accident/ an inside-job to execute a pre-planned violence against Muslims?
Burning alive Hindus is a spontaneous reaction of alleged misbehaviour of Hindus with Muslim women at #Godhra ?
2- #Godhra Hindus were not victims of #GodhraTrainBurning alone, them, their shops & houses have been through same carnage in 1947, 1952, 1959, 1961, 1965, 1967, 1972, 1974, 1980, 1983, 1989, 1990 and in 1992 as well!
Gujarat alone has seen 244 riots from 1950 to 1995!
3- From 1961 to 1971, Gujarat saw 685 incidents of muzlim violence in urban & 114 in the rural areas, out of which 578 took place in in 1969 alone!
Ahmedabad has seen 71 riots from 1950 till 1995!
What must Hindus do, retaliate never?

#Aurobindo on #Gandhi:
June 22, 1926
1. "For instance Gandhi is a European-truly, a Russian Christian in an Indian body. And there are some Indians in European bodies! Gandhi a European!"
He is largely influenced by Tolstoy, the Bible, and has a strong Jain tinge in his teachings; at any rate more than by the Indian scriptures-the Upanishads or the Gita, which he interprets in the light of his own ideas.
Many educated Indians consider him a spiritual man. Yes, because the Europeans call spiritual. But what he preaches is not Indian spirituality but something derived from Russian Christianity, non-violence, suffering, etc (…)"

'Born in a devotional Brahmin family, I instinctively revered Hindu religion, history & culture. As one inclined to free thinking, I worked for eradication of untouchability & birth-based caste system. I openly joined RSS wing of anti-caste movements & maintained that,

..all Hindus are equal. I studied very closely whatever Veer Savarkar & Gandhi had written or spoken, because they influenced Indians the most in last 30 yrs. All the reading led me to believe it was my 1st duty to serve Hindudom & Hindus as patriot.'

Dhirendra Jha's "#Gandhi's Assassin: The Making of Nathuram Godse and His Idea of India". A thread on a must-read book:
Today, 74 years ago, Mohandas K Gandhi was shot down in cold blood by Nathuram Godse while walking to his evening prayer meeting at Birla House in Delhi. (1/18)
Godse thought he'd get a reaction of mass support like the INA undertrials did; instead the country was enraged, and RSS men had to run for their lives. Distressed crowds tried to set on fire Savarkar Sadan in Mumbai and the Nagpur residence of RSS supremo MS Gowalkar. (2/18)
It was quite different from what Godse had in mind – which tells you a lot about his mind.
Dhirendra Jha, a colleague at Vinod Mehta's The Pioneer in the early 90s, has written a fascinating and lucid account of not just the conspiracy, the assassination, and the trial,... (3/18)

मैं (यानी उमा देवी) हिन्दुओं के लिए महान पाप समझती हूँ.

तीसरा एवं सबसे महत्वपूर्ण - किसी मस्जिद में गीता या रामायण पढ़ने का साहस आपने किया हो ऐसा मालूम नहीं होता.

गांधी जी ने अपनी प्रार्थना सभा में इस चिट्टी का आराम से उत्तर दिया. यह उत्तर आज और भी प्रासंगिक हो जाता है.

À méditer | La désobéissance civile

Gandhi proposait les règles suivantes dans sa lutte non-violente :

a) Un résistant civil ne doit pas avoir de colère.

[ Thread ]

Image : 🤔 Exemple de résistance passive : les manifestants se laissent porter. 😉
b) Il supportera la colère de l'opposant, ainsi que ses attaques sans répondre. Il ne se soumettra pas, par peur d'une punition, à un ordre émis par la colère.
c) Si une personne d'autorité cherche à arrêter un résistant civil, il se soumettra volontairement à l'arrestation, et il ne résistera pas à la confiscation de ses biens.

🔱THREAD: Excerpts & thoughts from the book "Factors in Modern #Sikh History" by Sangat Singh

⚜️Are Sikhs CAPABLE of learning from history?
🚀Are Sikhs AWARE of their history? Answers below! 👇1/N Image
The declaration of war by #LordDalhousie, East India Company's Governor General of India talks about war against the #SikhNation. Sikhs have since their very inception been different. That is reflected in their history & their interactions with other people. #Sikhs #Sikhism 2/N Image

Der internat. berüchtigte Neofaschist Martin #Sellner hat sich nun zu seinem Projekt der #Gegenuni geäußert. Er wird als „Dozent“ zwei „Lesekreise“ zu Büchern von Alain de Benoist bzw. Gene Sharp selbst verantworten. Benoist ist ein neurechter Klassiker. Sharp hingegen nicht. /1 ImageImageImage
Gene Sharp, Träger des Alternativen Nobelpreises, hat mit seinen Studien zum gewaltfreien Widerstand weltweit Befreiungsbewegungen inspiriert. Sie wurden von Menschen angewendet, die gegen echte Diktaturen und Autokraten kämpften, etwa in #Myanmar, #Belarus oder #Serbien. /2 ImageImageImage
Gemäß der rechtsextremen Propaganda der #Identitären leben wir aber faktisch ebenfalls in einer Diktatur, nämlich in der „Demokratiesimulation“ des „sanften Totalitarismus“. Dementsprechend sind Gene Sharps Ideen auch in Deutschland oder Österreich anwendbar, so #Sellner. /3

#RememberingNehru 🤡

PM #Nehru GIFTED the Kabo Valley (Manipur, 11,000+ sq. km.) to Burma.

Was it his ancestral property, to gift?

e-pao.net/epSubPageExtra…
Burma paid a monthly lease for the Kabo Valley until 1949. After that, with Nehru's consent, it stopped paying & annexed the valley.

Nehru did not take Parliament's consent for this act. Congress-dominated Parliament did not intervene, nor did later governments.
PM Nehru GIFTED the Coco Islands (Andamans) to #Burma. The Burmese gave them to #CHINA to spy on India.

Chinese airstrip & spy station on Coco Island which PM Nehru GIFTED to Burma.

Fact is the #CentralVista residence will be smaller than the 10 bungalows the lok kalyan marg residence uses in terms of sqft.
Fact also is the shifting of residence has more to do with security recommendations than anything else.
That said propaganda walo ko kaun samjhaye.
Today the official residences are scattered all over #lutyensdelhi . By concentrating the PM , President & VP in a close area within easy reach of all govt offices & the parliament the #CentralVistaProject will reduce security & logistics cost manifold saving well over it's cost.
Apart from that most have no idea that the total project cost of the #CentralVista is divided over a decade with no more than $150mn or ₹1050cr being the outlay in 2021-22.
This project actually began a few years ago & is necessitated by earthquake & fire norms.

Le pouvoir, quel incroyable champs des possibles ! Par lui, des vies changent. L’espoir se transforme en bonheur; la misère en du vent qui rivalise à peine ! Il est la force motrice qui matérialise la volonté que l’on peut avoir.

On a aimé #Mandela. Par son pouvoir, il a jeté les bases d’un pays qui a tourné le dos à l’apartheid. Et #Gandhi ? Un défenseur de premier rang opposé aux injustices sociales. Des portraits qui font rêver et qui auraient dû suffire à résumer ce pouvoir exercé au nom de tous.
3/9
Mais, ces beaux exemples parsèment modestement l’histoire de l’humanité. Nombreux, des cas d’exercice du pouvoir où l’abus et la déception sont si fréquents qu’il est légitime de se demander si le pouvoir n’est-il, in fine, un moyen de renforcer le statut de ses détenteurs?
