Just after his victory in the 1984 elections, #RajivGandhi faced his first big challenge. On 23rd April 1985, the Supreme Court ordered the ex-husband of a Muslim woman from Indore, Shah Bano, to pay her maintenance under Section 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). 1/13
Shah Bano's ex-husband Mohammed Ahmad Khan had argued in the Madhya Pradesh High Court, that under Islamic Law, he had paid his divorced wife three months' maintenance, and he wasn't obliged to pay any more. 2/13
#IndiaAt75
But the apex court maintained that "there is no conflict between the provisions of Section 125 and those of the Muslim Personal Law on the question of a Muslim husband's obligation to provide maintenance for a divorced wife who is unable to maintain herself". 3/13

1. The attack on #Kabul Cricket Stadium is as yet unclaimed, but it’s worth noting that, as of today, #ISKP has been inactive for 13 days in a row.

That’s the longest period since September 2021, when it was gearing up to launch the most intensive campaign in its recent history.
2. This summer’s slump has seen #ISKP become somewhat sidelined as an issue in #Afghanistan.

This graph shows mentions of the keyword “Daesh” on #Taliban social media since mid-2020.

Note how things peaked in Q4 2021 when #ISKP was at its most virulent.
3. We’ve also seen a slump in official #ISKP media releases (as in, those published through #IS’s Central Media Diwan).

Importantly, this lull hasn’t been reflected in the activities of #ISKP’s less globally prominent Pashtu and Dari media offices.

Who are the #Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vysyas & Shudras?

#Thread
In #Hinduism, neither a caste structure nor any divisions of labour are established for a certain vocation of life with watertight compartments.
The extraordinarily divine compere is devoid of any divisions of labour, social communalisms, or other unimportant issues.
The 4 "so-called" classes r castes represent the different stages of human growth (yogam).
It is untrue to say that #Jatis must pursue a certain line of work in the outside world. All of this discourse is the pitiful outcome of Toto's ignorance of the genuine meaning of our texts

A brief on Secularism in India by Sita Ram Goel. A Thread...

The concept of Secularism is western and denounced by Ilam and Christian. They prescribe theocracy (ruling in the name of God by priests or mullahs) where in state acts as secular arm of Church or Islam.

word does not find place in preamble or anywhere else. It was inserted by #IndiraGandhi in emergency she imposed in 1975-76.

Amidst the recent judgement of US Supreme Court about #AbortionBan, it's interesting to look at what the #Hindu scripture of *Garbha #Upanishad* says regarding embryonic development.

In this #thread, I'll try to compare its observations with modern scientific findings as well
2)
Garbha Upanishad is a very concise Upanishad, which deals with the constitution of body, the embryonic development, and concludes beautifully with guidelines regarding Moksha.
3)
'Through having the union at the ṛta (season), the embryo is formed.
In 7 days, it becomes like a bubble.
In 2 weeks, it becomes like a ball.

In 4 weeks, the ball hardens.
By 2 months (8 weeks), the head is formed.
By 3 months (12 weeks), the feet emerge.'

There are about 2.3 billion #Christians in the world & 1.8 billion #Muslims. That gap is expected to narrow by 2060, when there will be 3 billion #Christians & nearly 3 billion #Muslims. That’s because #Muslims, on average, are younger & have more children than do #Christians.
The countries with the 5 highest #Muslim populations are all in South and Southeast #Asia or in sub-Saharan #Africa, rather than the #MiddleEast; and the countries with the three highest #Christian populations are in the #Americas rather than in the #MiddleEast or #Europe.
By 2060, #India will retain a #Hindu majority but also will have the largest #Muslim population of any country in the world, surpassing #Indonesia. The current #Hindu population worldwide is approx 1.2 billion. Expected #Hindu population in 2060 will be nearly 1.5 billion.

Gangadeeswarar Temple located at Purasawalkam is a shrine of historical significance. The temple’s history dates back to the period of Rama’s forefather Bhagiratha, who first kept a Siva idol at this place and worshipped the deity. A temple was later built by Kulothunga Chola.
The temple is centuries old and speaking about its history, the priest says “Bhagiratha was a forefather to Lord Rama and it is said that due to a curse, Bhagiratha had to build 1,008 Siva temples around the country and when he was searching for a place for the 1,008th temple,
the God appeared before him and asked him to do so in a place which has a thick cover of Purasa trees
He chose this place and kept a Linga and started worshipping it using the Ganga water
Hence the Lord bears the name Gangadeeswarar.”
later built by Kulothunga Cholan.

#OnThisDay, in 1951, the famous Somnath Temple in #Gujarat was restored to its former glory. In the words of the then President of India, Dr Rajendra Prasad, it proved that “the power of reconstruction is always greater than the power of destruction". 1/9

Jack Ma, the richest person in China, says :-If you put bananas and lots of money in front of the monkey, the monkey will pick up the bananas, not the money. Because he doesn't know that money can buy a lot of bananas.
In the same way, if in reality today the people of India ..
are asked to choose between their personal interests and national security, they will choose their personal interests. They don't understand that national security is in their personal interest and they sell their family's safety and future for free power, water, rice, 1000₹

Learnt today that #alexanderthegreat of #macedonia #Greece had an #Indian guru the Greeks called "Kalanos" some say this was because he was a devotee of Kali .This #Hindu #Brahmin & Yogi stayed with Alexander till he was 73 & died by voluntarily walking into his own pyre
Ptolemy actually built his pyre & records the death as having taken place in Susa in 323BC .Kalanos distributed all the costly gifts he got from the king to the people and wore just a garland of flowers and chanted Vedic hymns as he walked into the Pyre.
He presented his horse to one of his Greek pupils named Lysimachus. He did not flinch as he burnt to the astonishment of those who watched. Although Alexander was not personally present at time of his immolation, his last words to Alexander were "We shall meet in Babylon".
