There has been a lot of outrage about the scrubbing of #MaulanaAzad from the history textbooks in India by the BJP, and justifiably so.

A thread 🧵. (1/n)
But for the last 75 years, nobody seems to have been outraged by the fact that the greatest Indian public intellectual of the 21st century, Dr. BR #Ambedkar, was practically scrubbed from history textbooks by Congress governments and BJP governments alike.

Sure, when I studied about Ambedkar in Maharashtra State Board textbooks, they told me that he was the author of the #indianconstitution and had grown up enduring great #castediscrimination. But THAT WAS ALL.

ஆளுநருக்குக் கண்டனம்!

"இந்தியாவை வழிநடத்துவது இந்திய அரசியலமைப்புச் சட்டம்தானே தவிர, சனாதன தர்மம் அல்ல என்பதை ஆளுநர் அவர்களுக்கு நினைவூட்டக் கடமைப்பட்டுள்ளேன்;

மனுதர்மத்தின் ஆட்சி நடக்கவில்லை, மக்களாட்சியே நடக்கிறது!

சனாதன தர்மம் என்பது சாதிக்கொரு நீதி சொல்வது ஆகும்;

ஆனால் இப்போது நடப்பது சட்டத்தின் ஆட்சி. சட்டத்தின் முன் அனைவரும் சமம்;

மனிதனை நான்கு வர்ணமாகப் பிரித்து, அதில் உயர்வு தாழ்வு கற்பித்து - சலுகையிலும் தண்டனையிலும் கூட சாதி வேற்றுமையை நிலை நிறுத்தியது சனாதனம்;

அமெரிக்க வெடிகுண்டுகளைப் பற்றி படித்திருக்கும் அவர், இந்தியாவில் உருவாக்கப்பட்ட சட்டங்களின் வரலாற்றை அறியாமல் இன்னமும் சனாதனம் பற்றிப் பேசிக் கொண்டு இருப்பது அவரது காலாவதியாகிப் போன சிந்தனையையே காட்டுகிறது;

In recent years, the Indian Constitution has been criticized primarily on two counts: that it is not "Hindu" enough and that it gives too many "concessions" to minorities.

In the very first reading of draft Indian constitution on November 4, 1948, Babasaheb Ambedkar had

responded to both criticisms (the exact quotations are longer, I have reproduced the relevant portions here):

"Another criticism against the Draft Constitution is that no part of it represents the ancient polity of India. It is said that the new Constitution should have

been drafted on the ancient Hindu model of a State and that instead of incorporating Western theories the new Constitution should have been raised and built upon village Panchayats and District Panchayats. There are others who have taken a more extreme view.

PM @narendramodi commences the 50th edition of #MannKiBaat reminding listeners that this Golden Jubilee episode is indeed gilt-edged in every sense of the term.
PM @narendramodi revealed why he chose radio as a medium for #MannKiBaat reminiscing how during his travels in Himachal Pradesh in 1998 a lone tea-seller in a remote snow-clad hilly outpost informed him of India’s Nuclear tests after listening to the news on radio.(1/3)
“He must be listening to the radio all day; this was a medium that was truly connected with the masses…and it was a powerful means of getting across,” the PM thought.(2/3) #MannKiBaat
