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.

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.

#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.

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!

There is a saying in Bengali which means the house owner starts taking precautions once the robbery is over. For last three weeks @RahulGandhi became a poster boy of #Pakistan by his immature acts on #Kashmir issue. The realization now dawns that he must change track. 1/n
It is not known what prompted #RahulGandhi 2 try visiting #Kashmir last week, knowing fully well that the #Modi government got moral/legal sanction from the Supreme Court 2 take all preventive measures 2 stop blood spill and, that Gandhi would be returned like other leaders. 2/n
One may see the shadow of #Wayanad in #RahulGandhi's desperation but, to me his acts only helped the politically irrelevant #Left to stay in news. Left has a history of opposing Congress in States while joining hands hands in d Centre. #Congress's gains were short term. 3/n

Gandhi was fav.Indian Leader till came across this Article.
OMG..he was pervert according to Historians.
Let Sparta share some facts about Mohandas Gandhi.
Hope no one would not be upset, afterall these facts r written by credible people.
Lets start;
Not only a Sex addict , also was a #Racist like #Modi . Looking at history , his speeches and secret life one can assume that he was a Hypocrite too.
Used Sluers like Kaffir aka Nigga for Africans of Black skin.
Amazingly under the cloak of Philanthropy Gandhi showed his actual worth by writing to English custodian of Colony that he being an Indian ( brown colored) wud prefer not be be called African (Black colored) as he was better than them in Race & alloted separate quarters .....

Gandhi ji on #BhagavadGita

The Gita is the universal mother. She turns away nobody. Her door is wide open to anyone who knocks. A true votary of Gita does not know what disappointment is. He ever dwells in perennial joy and peace that passeth understanding.
But that peace and joy come not to skeptic or to him who is proud of his intellect or learning. It is reserved only for the humble in spirit who brings to her worship a fullness of faith and an undivided singleness of mind.
There never was a man who worshipped her in that spirit and went disappointed. I find a solace in the Bhagavad-Gita that I miss even in the Sermon on the Mount. When disappointment stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagavad-Gita.

- Guru Prasad
SUbject - Appeasement, Madrasa, Khilafat

1- The Madrasa system is like a sleeping dragon which is actually gradually sinking into an ocean. It is in the best interest of our nation, as well as humanity, to avoid awakening it.
2- What I mean to say is that the #Madrasa system in India, especially in the last 20-30 years, has been on a steady decline. While several other countries have been shutting them down #forcefully or through #legislature (due to activities of spreading radicalism).
3- and whereas in India, all our past Govts chose not to disturb the #Madrasa system so that it can #die down #naturally. In fact, several Muzlim families have been moving away from the Madrasa system, and switching to the #normal schooling system for their kids.

🇮🇳 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.

Know where #Gandhi ‘s love for Islam & preaching #Ahimsa to Hindus came from!
"My family was Pranami,though we are Hindu by birth, in our temple priest used to read from Quran & Geeta”. Gandhi
Prannath Thakur, desciple of Devchandra Maharaj established #Pranami tradition.
17th century, Maharaja Chhatrasal with Shivaji’s blessings fought the Mughals for freedom of Bundelkhand. Before the battle Prannath blessed him to be victorious & gave him his sword & angocha.
#Chhatrasal fought 80 battles with #Aurangzeb & won almost all!
Prannath would invite the converted Muslims & Hindus to dine together & cite Quran & Srimad Bhagwat in his teachings( maye be to connect with the new converts & bring them back)?
After Mahamati Prannath, #Chhatrasal promoted Krishna Pranami tradition of Mahamati Prannath.

#Godse killed someone. Whatever was the reason, whatever was his ideology doesn't matter. Coz all forms of violence - terrorism, naxal violence, political assassinations draw their sanctity from their ideology. Can't say one is better than the other/1
So yes #Godse was an assassin. Let's stop at that.
As for #Gandhi he has to be open to scrutiny as a public figure and as a mass leader. But doctored history or not, majority of Indians have grown up respecting him & his contributions./2
His personal feelings for #Gandhi aside, @narendramodi used this understanding to get ppl together for many social schemes. #Gandhi is an icon even opposition can't question. So unless the plan is to jeopardise the social cohesion @narendramodi is trying to achieve /3

#Thread "Darkest Side of #Gandhi"

I personally think. Under Gandhi India never could get freedom with his rule of "Ahimsa".

India is not Independent because of Gandhi.

N share this.

1)Britsh PM Clement Attlee had accepted that Gandhi’s role was minimal n we left because of erosion of loyalty of armymen. Attlee told Netaji, not Gandhi, got India freedom.
Not just this, this was already anticipated in 1945 by British.

2) i)In 1900 Boer War as an assistant superintendent of the Indian volunteer stretcher-bearer corps.Gandhi wrote in his autobiography-
“When the war was declared,my personal sympathies were all with the Boers,but my loyalty to the British rule drove me to participation with this

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.

Portada #TheEconomist 2019

Me ha parecido una portada muy curiosa y la voy a analizar desde mi punto de vista personal (con toque @DavesRadar) intentando descifrar los mensajes que nos quieren transmitir para este año 2019 que se presenta muy interesante
Lo primero que destaca es que la portada está al revés, es necesario hacer espejo a la imagen para poder leer correctamente las frases que hay incluidas en ella.

El análisis es de arriba/abajo izquierda/derecha
Lo primero que destaca es la imagen de un artefacto volador dirigiéndose a la luna.

🇮🇳wouldn’t have suffered at the hands of @INCIndia for 70yrs had
#SardarVallabhbhaiPatel become our 1st PM!
1946,only 1 of the 16 PCC Presidents voted for #Nehru ,15 for #SardarPatel
#Gandhi used his veto power in favour of #Nehru because he’d threatened to split the Congress!
#Gandhi had a soft corner for #Nehru since the beginning
he had preferred Nehru over #SardarPatel twice for the post of Congress president, in 1929 & 1937.
Nehru made it clear that he’d not play 2nd fiddle to anybody
Gandhi feared that he’d revolt if denied PM’s post!
High Command’s Forced Decision making, Democracy @INCIndia ?
Follies of #Nehru on Kashmir,China proved-
showing utter disregard to overwhelming support from majority of PCCs for #SardarVallabhBhaiPatel
#Gandhi made a blunder by imposing Nehru on Nation weary of Colonial burden!

#Nehru ditched Tibet (like Bhutan was buffer state between🇮🇳& China

We lost to the Chinese despite a valiant fight put up by our soldiers,
what was Nehru doing to retaliate/ push back invading Chinese hordes?
Why did🇮🇳end up becoming a joke that’s compared with 3rd rate🇵🇰
SardarPatel warned #Nehru that China was in a vulnerable position,committed in Korea & not secure in its hold over mainland.

🇮🇳would’ve acquired status of great power
🇵🇰would’ve disappeared from radar of🌎attention
had Patel’s letter & international opinion not been ignored!
“Chinese communists are likely to invade Tibet”.
#Nehru September 1949

Yet, he sacrificed India’s national security interests in Tibet;
to not weaken China’s case in the UN!

When we celebrate the #IndependanceDay , lets also remind ourselves of the price a common #Indian had to pay for the Freedom we enjoy today!
Neither should the culprits of #1947Divide be forgotten or forgiven for the sufferings of our people!
Perpetrators for hatching the plot of the #1947Divide were,
1, Winston Churchill, to safeguard the strategic interests of the British Empire in🇮🇳& Indian Oceans
2, Betrayal of Muslims
3, #Congress , the Partner-in-crime that allowed it to happen!
30 Dec 1906,on the birth of Muslim League, ‘Lal Ishtihar’ was distributed appealing to Muslims,
‘not to buy from #Hindus
not touch anything manufactured by them,not to study in the same school
acquire knowledge & send them to jehannum,that Hindus became rich robbing their💰’!
