So far so good, haven't seen any serious error/problem in what I've seen so far, but I need to look more carefully, before making a judgement. But clearly the reform process is now well under way 👍🏼👍🏼
3/labor Best change is reversal of #Indira #Gandhi's arbitrary decision during infamous #emergency, to lower limit for, retrenchment w/o bureaucratic permission, from 300 to 100. This will help restore the #Missing #Middle", as firms with <100 workers are free to expand to 300

मुंबई PoK तुलनेमुळे कंगनाला संपुर्ण राज्याचा द्वेष पत्करावा लागला व त्यामुळे कंगना राणावत ला केंद्र सरकारने 'Y+' श्रेणी सुरक्षा दिली हे आपल्या सर्वांना माहित आहे.आजच्या थ्रेडमध्ये भारतात एकुण किती सुरक्षा प्रकार अस्तित्वात आहेत व त्यांच्याबद्दल थोडीशी माहिती जाणून घेऊया! #म #धागा ImageImage
एखादा व्यक्ती वलयांकित असेल,अति महत्त्वाचा असेल,समाजामध्ये एखाद्या प्रतिष्ठीत पदावर अथवा वेगळ्या उंचीवर असेल (थोडक्यात VIP) तर अशा व्यक्तीला जीवनाला धोका असु शकतो ह्या कारणाने भारतामध्ये एकुण ५ प्रकारच्या सुरक्षा श्रेणी दिल्या जातात.

A thread on #MahatmaGandhi in context of #KangnaRanaut's statement on Gandhism.
1.Gandhi was against all isms.
2. Nobody can claim to believe in "Gandhism" & NOT be a liberal.
2. Has anyone seen a pix of #Gandhiji ever visiting a temple, derasar, church or mosque?
3.Gandhi was a liberal & a staunch secular. He never built a temple or inaugurated one.He was the first person who denied Govt funding to #Somnath reconstruction to Kanaiyalal Munshi.
4. #Gandhi ji's prayer meetings were always interfaith in nature, including the Ashram prayers.
5. #Gandhiji was not "nationalstic" in the contemporary usage of the term. He NEVER cited or used history to underscore his social or political battles. He believed only fake nationalists use history to score points without considering the political & social context of the era.

Rabian que tras estudiar en Londres #Gandhi paso a Sudáfrica donde se quedo por 21 años ejerciendo como abogado al principio, para luego luchar por los derechos de los hindús en la #India seria allí donde adoptaría el dhoti para identificarse con los mas pobres ImageImage
Pocos saben que durante su estancia en #Sudáfrica #Gandhi voluntariamente recluto y dirigió un cuerpo de 'paramédicos camilleros' durante la Guerra #Boer de 1900, donde se dedicaba con sus hombres a recoger soldados británicos heridos de las lineas de batalla. ImageImage
Esto con la esperanza de ganar mas derechos para los hindus en Sudafrica, por parte de Inglaterra y durante este tiempo se caso y formo una familia. Ademas de que comenzó a dejar de verse como británico primero y mas como un hindú. Image

State of #unemployment & #underemployment in India is pathetic. But comparing that to the SSR case is worse. If rallying behind a cause is what it takes to shake an age old toxic tree, then why aren’t the ones who care about unemployment doing it? I care about both but saying one
is more important than the other is simply foolish. One case is about our economy and other is about drugs and sex trafficking. Not just murder. Both are fcuking up our youth.
Our #education system is a massive loophole. The govt talks about #DigitalIndia but cannot make a digital platform for education during the lockdown? How are universities around the world conducting exams? Why can't we build something when we have the ability?

If you really want to make a change in the world, do something hard like #nonviolent #resistance. Read up and learn #satyagraha or change. It takes #strength & #courage; physical force is forbidden even in the so-called most favorable circumstances.…
If your cause is #righteous, Gandhi believed, the movement would speak for itself.

My personal justification for it is #psychological/#neurological (#CNS/#HPA).

If you use #violence, well the one with the biggest #ego or the biggest ego-extension (guns, tanks, war) will win.
Removing tools of violence (words, arms) from the equation, you form a mirror.

It's not easy though. You'd have to refine/drop/manage/elevate past your own #ego.

People - depending on personal history & psychology - sometimes become enraged at what they see in the #mirror.

Forget @BJP4India , @SupriyaShrinate , answer some common man’s questions!
1- Why did #Gandhi support Khilafat movement?
2- Why was Maulana Abu Kalam, who stood by Khilafat & making of Pakistan, made 1st edu minister?
3- What did @INCIndia do to stop Communal Award?
4- Why did #Congress in 1916 approve 1/3 rd representations of Muslims on basis of minority when their population represented less than that?
5- Why did they refuse to preside over the Amritsar session in 1919 after Jalianwala massacre?
2/ n
6- Why did #Congress ,in 1931 Karachi session accept Mauzie demand of, ‘minority right to protect its language, culture & education’, when Hindu deputations pleaded Gandhi against it?
Seperation of #Sindh from Bombay & its formation into a mu majority province killed Hindus!

#Nehru failed #JammuKashmir & so did #SardarPatel. Abuse me, troll me but I'm certain(with facts,of course) that Patel played second fiddle when it came to J&K

For long, a propaganda has been carved to portray #Maharaja in a bad light by #Delhi
I'll prove my assertion

1. When GG Lord Mountbatten met #Maharaja in June 1947, he asked the latter to accede to either #India or #Pak but also gave a clear hint that if #Maharaja decided to accede with #Pak, it'll not be treated as an unfriendly act by the STATES DEPTT(and in turn, Patel)
2 Remember, this was also the time when #Gilgit lease was terminated. Locals in cahoots with their British masters mounted trouble in #Gilgit. #Mountbatten knew this. Patel again, didn't do anything. He was too putting his weight behind #Abdullah, who was indifferent to accession

Ambedkar on Islam.
" Pakistan or The Partition of India, 1942 "

It's a fashion to hide #Ambedkar's views on ISLAM by today's narrative builders. It's a fact that #Ambedkar for all enticements never embraced Islam.
He was clear about Danger posed by ISLAM to INDIA.
Ambedkar clinically examined ISLAM, Muslim psyche, & the dangers it posed to India. He clearly foresaw that Hindus & Muslims can't co-exist & British India to be Partitioned after "complete exchange of population "
He opposed partition of Sind from Bombay Presidency.
#4TH chapter, he traced Muslim invasion, butchering, forced conversions, destruction of temples, monuments... Not merely looting but converting KAFFIR is aim.

Criticised #Gandhi, his silence on killing of #SwamiShraddhanand. Criticised APPEASEMENT of Muslims for UNITY.

An Anthropologist following Gandhi (2)

India's first Prime Minister famously said "Don't spare me Shankar" (a leading Indian cartoonist). But #Gandhi did not spare Shankar ;) I wrote about this in my book Caricaturing Culture.
#Texas #Fulbright #fieldwork #cartoons #India
An anthropologist following Gandhi (3)

#Gandhi tapped the power of #cartoons & #public communication early into his journalistic career in #SouthAfrica. Cartoons could be Satyagraha (truth force). His #newspaper the Indian Opinion published and interpreted British cartoons.

After reading 6 chapters of this book, I am totally convinced that, We RWs have played as per trap laid down for us by LWs on #savarkar's alleged involvement in #Gandhi Assassination plot. From when all this Defaming& insulting #savarkar started?
After death of #veersavarkar , India Gandhi had praised his work & issued a stamp in his memory. In 1981, she also donated Rs 11k (Today's 5 lacs) to #savarkar smarak in Mumbai. Many Marathi Socialist n Leftist intellectuals started attacking Savarkar after his death.
But, their attacks were restricted to 'Reformist', 'Modern' Savarkar who talked of abandoning Caste n Varna system, breaking 7 shackles of Hinduism, etc. They called it all falsehood & used to portray Savarkar as some Orthodox & Manuvadi having belief in Caste system.

“Gandhiji would always mention that I am a Hindu, Christian, Sikh, Muslim, Jain, Buddhist, Parsee and a Jew.”…
Ghani, lawyer in South Africa, repeatedly expressed contempt for the native population, claiming they were no better than the “untouchables” of Indian society.…
Ghandi was a Vegan, homo and a bloody racist 😨
Kallenbach was a German-Jewish bodybuilder who moved to South Africa in 1896. Gandhi met him in a vegetarian restaurant and soon thereafter became the love of his life.…

CM @capt_amarinder is working against the interests of Sikh Panth and Punjab by changing the State's stance and submitting an affidavit in Supreme Court stating that the Haryana Vidhan Sabha has its right to establish a separate gurdwara management committee. 1/3
#SGPC Image
Punjab chief minister must know that the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (#SGPC) is an inter state corporate body and only parliament can take a decision on any changes to its present set up. Despite the fact, he has tried to play politics on this sensitive issue. 2/3
Such naked attempts of @capt_amarinder to meddle in Sikh religious affairs with the motive to sow discord amongst the community is condemnable and in line with the #Gandhi Gandhi family policy of divide and rule. The Sikh community will never allow this conspiracy to succeed. 3/3

.@capt_amarinder why did you choose to learn your history lessons from Mein Kampf and not the dozens of books written by Sikh scholars recounting the State sponsored Congress pogroms detailing the attack on Sri Harmandir Sahib and #SikhGenocide in Delhi in 1984. /1 Image
I will soon be sending you across a bundle of such important books detailing how the @INCIndia and its first family had planned and engineered the attack on our holiest shrine as well as mass killing of #Sikhs in Delhi and other parts of the country. /2
I am sure these books will refresh your memory & remove the selective amnesia which has clouded your mind. Please do give these books space in your library & read them also. You will never again give inane suggestions to anyone and forsake servility towards the #Gandhi family. /3

A thread about #Gandhi-ism and why I turned down an invitation to make solidarity with the Students for Justice in Palestine/J Street Crowd at my local Center for Non-Violence. #ReligiousLeft
Here is a piece from the Hard, Hard Left Jewish Currents:
"IT WAS my daughter-in-law, Nikki Pusin, who brought it to my attention, just as her father, Max Pusin, had brought it to hers years before — that the world-revered Gandhi had a puzzling relationship to the Holocaust.
In 1947, interviewed by Louis Fischer, author of The Life of Mahatma Gandhi, Gandhi said: “Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves in the sea

I am a hindu punjabi ... My parents came as refugees in 1947 from Peshawar , leaving everything there ... Till the last day of their lives they didn’t forgive Gandhi-Nehru & Cong for the massacre of millions of hindus& dividing the country .. I support #CAA & #NRC !
#Gandhi used sit on #satyagrah at the drop of a hat ...even to make #SubhashCBose resign as Cong Presi he sat on anshan.But when India was being divided on religious basis, in such an arbitrary,hamhanded, cruel way then why didn’t he sit on satyagrah or anshan? #IndiaSupportsCAA
Gandhi was like a spoilt kid who used anshan to get his way.He used his stature to bully other leaders to give in to his tantrums... like when Patel stepped down to let Nehru become the PM despite getting 13 out of 16 states reps choosing him as their leader!

Now that we have irrefutable evidence that former PM #RajivGandhi did not allow the Army from stopping the Sikh genocide of 1984, the #BharatRatna conferred on him should be withdrawn. 1/4
Dr #ManmohanSingh’s disclosures vindicate our stand that #SikhGenocide could have been averted had Rajiv Gandhi heeded appeals to call in Army to tackle arsonists led by @INCIndia leaders. Home ministry records show this decision was taken at a meeting presided over by him. 2/4
I appeal to PM @narendramodi Ji to withdraw the highest civilian honour from Rajiv Gandhi, who planned & oversaw the #SikhMassacre and also get cases registered against Rajiv & others who prevented the Army from entering Delhi. They should be awarded exemplary punishment. 3/4

🇮🇳 ¿Cual fue la relación entre #MahatmaGandhi y el fútbol? 🤔

#Gandhi150 Image
#Ghandi vio en el fútbol una herramienta para concientizar al pueblo de la necesidad de combatir de forma pacífica por la igualdad de derechos y por las injusticias del sistema de castas. Image
En Sudáfrica fundó 3 equipos de fútbol (en Durbin, Pretoria y Johannesburgo), en dónde buscó aplicar su pensamiento. A todos les puso el nombre de "Resistentes pasivos".
