#Thread on #Hindu #Hinduism & #Hindutva. I saw this as an imprudent need & hence the thread as below cc @vivekagnihotri @RatanSharda55 @Sanjay_Dixit @_NAN_DINI @GitaSKapoor @sankrant @DikshitSmita @Shubhrastha 👇🏼Pic: Trimurti Sadashiva sculpture on Gharapuri Island
2/n #Hinduism is a reduced nomenclature given to the Sanatana Dharma by British in 1830s. The word Hinduism is formed by adding suffix ISM to Hindu.

ISM is defined as a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.
3/n It must be understood that Hindu term always had geo-cultural meaning covering for people residing amid Sindhu River, Himalayas & Indu Sagar. Then in this case adding suffix ISM is nothing but mocking English Language. Eg, u can’t add Ism to Japanese and call Japaneism.

Rutgers professor @AudreyTruschke "When they conquered 🇮🇳, Muslims were benevolent & tolerant"😂

In her book, Culture of Encounters she says "the heyday of Muslim rule was one of “tremendous cross-cultural respect/fertilization & not religious conflict"

In "The History of Jihad From Mohd to ISIS", @jihadwatchRS says

Aurangzeb in 1670 issued a decree “Every idol-house built during the last 10/12 yrs, with brick or clay, should be demolished without delay

Also, do not allow the #Hindu infidels to repair their old temples.”
Muslim historian, Saqa Mustad Khan, wrote that in Jan 1680, Aurangzeb “went to view lake Udaisagar, built by the Rana, ordered all 3 temples on its banks to be crushed.”

Next day, “Hasan Ali brought 20 camel-loads captured from Rana’s palace & had further destroyed 172 temples.”

1-I have always seen, it is the "RW intellectuals" who are the biggest enemies of #Hinduism
They are the ones who are the first to pull down anyone trying to do anything different, which they cant do, dont hv vision to do.
They dont care abt #Hindusim> only about their egos.
2-The people who have 2 koudi ka jnana about Shaastras, traditions, who won't know which mantra means what in what puja, who can and can't do puja in a Mahadeva temple, are the ones who go around "preaching" Hinduism, and giving pain to the sincere folks working hard day & night
3-Extraordinary powers were are LIFESTYLE. They were the essence of BEING Hindu.

Be it Ramayana, Mahabharata, Puranas, Vedas, Agamas - EVERY where these shaktis are mentioned & described in detail.

Anytime you ever want to see the "tolerant" nature of the #VHP's World Hindu Congress look at the alarming way they talk about Americans who are concerned about the normalization of #Hindu Fascism. " #StopHinduFascism #WHC2018 #WHC2018CHICAGO
Ultraleftists", "Islamists", and "Evangelists" so many slurs in one sentence. From Islamophobia, Redbaiting, to attacking Christians this is the #VHP showing its true colors.#StopHinduFascism #WHC2018 #WHC2018CHICAGO
This is why these people are so dangerous. Behind their shiny marketing campaign is frightening bigotry & worse. Only when #DalitBahujans who are resisting their campaigns of violence speak up do they suddenly lose their "safe space." #StopHinduFascism #WHC2018 #WHC2018CHICAGO

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!
#IndependanceDay
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💰’!

I still don’t buy this core voter disenchantment theory after #ByPollResults . One month back the same core Voter brought BJP from 40 to 104. I have some questions for on-twitter BJP Core supporters who claim loss is due to “core voters” losing faith in Modi . #KairanaByPolls
Some ‘Core Voters’ are educated people. Their friendships extend, like mine, across religions, even though their commitment to Hinduism is unquestionable. They demand like old Hindi film’s heroine’s dad that Modi mustn’t have Muslim friends. Is it plausible in politics?
From what we see here, even from Muslims voting en-masse for temple-hopping Congress is their trust in appeasement parties isn’t ephemeral and conditional like ‘core Hindu voters’. If he tries to even win one Muslim heart, Hindus will stand stiff claiming either him or me.

#Salutations

Before the arrival of Islam, there had never been any bloodshed in the name of Dharma in this hallowed land of #SanatanDharma

Do #Hindu know that #Nehru invited trouble by ‘importing’ the alien concept of SECULARISM from Europe?

After the 4th & before the 18th century, the function of the European States was not only to control the worldly life of its subjects, but also to secure salvation in the other🌎, key to which was in Church’s possession!

The Church excommunicated those who violated rules,👇🏻

& closed gates of heaven for him.
It was State’s duty then to burn him alive/torture to death!

Jews were deprived of all citizenship rights & stigmatized as
KILLERS of Christ!

State was termed as
‘SECULAR ARM’ of Church,
State admitted its main function was to serve Church!

Let me educate you @sardesairajdeep

The National movement set forth by Bankim Chandra, Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo,
Vande Mataram,mantra of an awakened🇮🇳, was diluted in the hands of Nehru’s leadership!

History-Muslims could dived 🇮🇳 due to being patronized by a faction👇🏻

INC extended concessions to Muslims to join freedom struggle
But
They remained British allies upto the end.
Leader of a leftist faction (harbouring a deep seated animosity against #Hindu society & culture, ignorant of both #Sanatana / Islam) in #Congress was JL #Nehru !

It had been proclaimed in 1947 that the so called communal problem had been solved forever;

hardly 70yrs have passed and the Muslims have started speaking the same language which they used before the partition of India?

The first contribution of Brahmins to the #Hindu National Pride was this #Brahmin ‘s reply to the 1st known foreign invaders, the Greeks(they called him ‘Dandamis’) on being threatened to be beheaded on his refusal to meet Alexander.
⬇️
2)
“Alexander has’nt yet seen other bank of Vyas
If he successfully faces brave🇮🇳states beyond & yonder still
the powerful empire of Magadh,
yet remain alive,I shall consider.
He may behead me but can’t kill my soul”

Plutarch gives full text of this #Brahmin ‘s fearless reply
3)
Alexander realized, #Brahmins exerted powerful influences upon the governments of🇮🇳Republics,
that tongues of these fearless Brahmins were sharper than Khatriya swords.

Before beheading one he asked,
why he instigated a certain-ruler against him & came the reply👇🏻

#ReadTheThread. Ten things every Hindu can do!
I keep getting asked, ‘what can we, ordinary Hindus do for the Dharma?’

I am no expert on Dharma, but here are ten easy steps we can all take at our individual levels to assert our identity as Hindus. #Hindu #Identity #HinduPride
1) Tell your kids or nephews or nieces, or kids you know stories from our history and religion. Buy them Indic books. Take them to see Hindu temple architecture, and when they ask you, pointing at a vandalised Murti, ‘what happened here’? Tell them the truth, with the names!
2) Have a Pooja corner in your house. Have a regular ritual. Light a lamp. Make children pray before they set out for school. Just a simple chanting of a few shlokas is enough to keep them connected if you do it on a daily bases. Visit a temple on festivals or on their birthday.

Babur Eminabad(iSadipur)imprisioned Guru Nanak along with other citizens when he invaded.
#GurNanak was made to work on stone grinder(Gurdwara Sri Chakki Sahib🇵🇰)
Babur was informed about the miraculous powers of Guru Nanak causing the grinder to move on its own.
Babar is believed to ask Guru for his blessings in his endeavour to conquer🇮🇳
Nanak replied
“you've come to conquer my land & you have the audacity to ask for my blessings".
Thus began the long history of hostility between Muslim invaders & all the Sikh Gurus.
I am reminded of My father, uncles, aunts travel back in time whenever I asked them to narrate the bitter #HorrorsOfPartition

They were numb as if lifeless for days thereafter,
waking or walking, they were just not there..
Need I say more??👇🏻

Laugh at your own ignorance @RifatJawaid @vikramchandra
Study:
histories by medieval Muslim historians,

Chapter, ‘Hindustan ki Masjiden’ in
Maulana Hakim Sayid Abdul Hai’s,
‘Hindustan Islami ahad mein’

‘Epigraphia Indica’ by Archeological Survey of🇮🇳

1-Maulana Abdul Hai in the chapter, Hindustan ki Masjiden,describes each principal masjid in few lines;

“Qutub-Din Aibak, after demolishing Temple built by Prithviraj, leaving certain parts, built Quwwat al-Islam in 587”,👇🏻
2- In 592,Aibak returned & under Shihabud-Din Ghori’s orders, started building a huge masjid of red stone including certain parts of the Temple.

When Shamsud-Din Altamish became the king, he built edifices of white stone on both its sides & on one side, the lofty towers..

Does Hinduism refer to Culture or #Religion?

Pls follow the thread to get the answer-

#SundayThoughts #Hinduism
#sundaymotivation #Sundaywisdom (1/7)
#Hinduism is a not a religion in the western sense. The name was originally invented by people who lived outside India to designate its geographical location, culture and ethnicity. The word became associated with native faiths of India much later.(2/7)
"Hindu" word came to us from Persia. Persians identified d people who lived south of d Indus river as Hindus.#Hindu came from the root word Sindhu and overtime it became Hindu from which came Hinduism.The Greek interpreted it as “Indos.” Hence,d Europeans used d name India.(3/7)

Depiction of a temple having a dome and entrance framed within a 'pointed arch'
Dated: ~1-3rd century CE
Entrance is likely derived from arched torana with concentric arches, space between them is beautifully decorated with scrollwork and floral patterns. #Gandhara
Dome of the temple was capped by Kalasha.

Fortunately there are various temples same features which survived the wrath of Islamic invaders. See the one in below link
