जून 25, 1975 से मार्च 21, 1977 तक की 21 महीने की अवधि के आपातकाल के दौरान राजनेताओं से लेकर स्कूल-कॉलेज में पढ़ने और पढ़ाने वाले छात्रों, शिक्षकों एवं कई सत्याग्रहियों को पुलिसिया बर्बरता का शिकार बनाया गया। Image
'Torture of Political Prisoners in India' पुस्तक में उन तमाम तरह के उत्पीड़नों का ज़िक्र किया गया है, जो इंदिरा गांधी द्वारा दी गई छूट से सत्याग्रहियों एवं आम नागरिकों के साथ किए गए

प्रधानमंत्री @narendramodi ने आज के #MannKiBaat कार्यक्रम में भी इस पुस्तक का उल्लेख किया है।
इस पुस्तक में एक ‘स्वतंत्रता सेनानी’ के हवाले से लिखा गया है कि जब सही समय होगा उस वक्त ये सारे क़िस्से ख़ुद ही सामने आ जाएँगे लेकिन अभी इनका लिखा जाना आवश्यक है। विभिन्न राज्यों की लोक संघर्ष समिति ने उन पर हुए अत्याचारों की जानकारी सामने रखी थीं।

This is a thread on Phiroz Rustomji Daruwala, a cold-blooded serial killer who brutally killed an elderly family in a #murder case that rocked #Mumbai and #Maharashtra 50 years ago. The criminal also planned to abduct matka king Ratan Khatri!
#crime #truecrime #murdermysteries ImageImageImage
2 February 1971. The neighbours of Darabshah Sethna (82), a resident of Jehangir Mansion, near Metro Cinema at Dhobi Talao in #Mumbai were intrigued. The main door of his 5th floor was locked, which was unprecedented as the family never went out together.
Sethna was a bachelor. Gaibai Master (72), her husband Nasserwanji (65) and their servant Bawla (55) stayed with Sethna and cared for him. Sethna was a managing clerk at a reputed solicitor's firm in #Mumbai.

#बुद्ध मुस्कुराये !

आज 18 मई है और आज ही के दिन वर्ष 1974 में देश ने अपना पहला परमाणु परि़क्षण पोखरण में किया था ।

उक्त परमाणु परि़क्षण के बाद हम विश्व के छठे परमाणु शक्ति सम्पन्न राष्ट्र बन गये थे। भाभा एटोमिक रिसर्च सेंटर के तत्कालीन अध्यक्ष डा. राजा रमना के नेतृत्व में यह
परि़क्षण किया गया था । आपरेशन का नाम ‘ Smilling Buddha ‘ रखा गया था क्योंकि उस दिन बुद्ध पूर्णिमा का शुभ दिन था । आपरेशन की सफलता के बाद डा. रमना ने तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री श्रीमती इंदिरा गॉधी को फ़ोन कर कहा था कि आख़िर बुद्ध मुस्करा दिये ।
यह भी बताना तर्क संगत होगा कि श्रीमती इंदिरा गॉधी ने वर्ष 1972 में ही वैज्ञानिकों को देश को परमाणु शक्ति सम्पन्न राष्ट्र बनाने का निर्देश दिया था और देश के वैज्ञानिकों ने डेढ़ साल से भी कम समय मे इस कार्य को अंजाम दे दिया था।

Independent India has always been a vibrant democracy, except for the #Emergency years of #IndiraGandhi from 1975-77. That it has taken a decisive turn to religious majoritarianism under the #BJP and under #Modi since 2014 doesn't change that fact. (1/)
Democracy is not necessarily congruent with liberal values or even human rights. #Slavery was legal both in the democracy of Great Britain as well as the USA for almost a hundred years since the US' formation. Even a White woman was not considered equal to a man in America. (2/)
#Blacks in the #US did not have equal rights even after the abolition of slavery for another 100 years under #Lincoln, but we still think of the US in #1960 as a democracy.

Dear friends, #Congress (#INC) likes to claim that it "fought" for #India's independence & refers to its political opponents as #fascists. How many of you know that only did #INC *not* EXCLUSIVELY "fight" for #Independence (AND #Gandhi was "happy" to settle for #DominionStatus)+
But also the party known as #INC by #IndiraGandhi was *not* even the same party that was formed in #1885 ? A thread about the #Congress follows: +

#Thread 🧵

एक सांसद के रूप में @RahulGandhi को अयोग्य घोषित किए जाने पर एक अमेरिकी सांसद @RoKhanna ने अपने दादा के बहाने कई झूठे दावे किए हैं।

इस थ्रेड से जानिए Emergency के समर्थकों पर राहुल गांधी के अमेरिकी समर्थक किस तरह से विमर्श को भटकाने का असफल प्रयास कर रहे हैं।
अमेरिकी सांसद @RoKhanna अपने ट्वीट में बेबुनियाद दावा करते हैं कि भारतीय प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के पास यह अधिकार है कि वो यह फैसला पलट सकते हैं। हालाँकि भारतीय संविधान देश के प्रधानमंत्री को ऐसा कोई अधिकार प्रदान नहीं करता है।

रो खन्ना निश्चित रूप से राहुल गांधी के समर्थन में अन्य कॉन्ग्रेस नेताओं की तरह ही गांधीवादी मूल्यों के उल्लंघन का जिक्र तो करते हैं पर यह व्याख्या करने में विफल है कि संसद से राहुल गांधी की अयोग्यता के कारण क्या हैं।

Thread: The Horrific Killing of Ehsan Jafri in the #GulbargMassacre
On 28 February 2002 Ehsan Jafri was gruesomely murdered by a feverish mob. Slaughtered along with him were around seventy women, children and men who had taken shelter with the man....
...whom they had believed was influential enough to save their lives from a colossal armed mob baying for blood.
But he was dragged away by the horde, his limbs were cut off from his body before he was burned. His family could not even locate his remains.
He was a renowned poet, labor leader and politician who was killed in infamous #Gulbarg Society massacre in Gujarat 2002 riots. #Modi, then the CM of Gujarat, was accused of doing little to stop the anti-Muslim riots -an allegation he has always denied.

Is it a coincidence that Valmiki Jayanti & Birthday of Keshav Parasaran falls on same day?

Its an honour for me to write a brief biography on a living legend on his 95th Birthday.

former Chief Justice of Madras High Court Sanjay Kishan Kaul referred him as the “Pitamah of Indian Bar for his contribution to the law without compromising with his dharma”.

Parasaran’s spiritual relationship with Shree Rama powered him throughout the course of this case,
his blend of spirituality and legal knowledge helped Hindus to finally reclaim the Ram Janmabhoomi.

When he turned 85, Parasaran decided to devote more time towards his spiritual and literary pursuits. The staunch devotee of Shri Ram, returned to the court after a long gap to

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.

Christianity has reconciled itself of theocracy whereas Isalm has not. Trend in Islam has been to return to theocracy.

The key points to note in this brilliant article by @dharmadispatch in @Openthemag are given in the pictures below. The biggest mystery for me is when you look at 1947 even though a #Nehru could have been sympathetic to the #Muslim cause given the #partition where was the need
to glorify the invaders, the most brutal barbaric rulers of the Mughal period & make them the heroes & representatives of Indian muslims? For someone who claimed to be secular & fighting for united India the #Nehru ecosystem could have found so many other heroes to represent the
Indian muslims. Accepting the extra sympathy for a community in the aftermath of partition #Nehru & his eco system by promoting barbaric figures as their heroes actually did the greatest disservice to the Indian muslims. Fissiparous elements drove the wedge deeper over time.

The #FarRight remember Indira Gandhi for the #Emergency she declared in 1975 - the suspension of Constitutionally guaranteed civil rights. But not because they are champions of citizens' rights and freedoms. On the contrary they are taking away our rights and freedoms silently
The liberal secular left remembers Indira Gandhi's Emergency because the experience taught them the value of Constitutionally-guaranteed #Rights and #Freedoms.

Is the #MVA government in Maharashtra replaying #IndiraGandhi’s Emergency? Where are self-appointed guardians of #FoE in this #ArnabGoswami episode, which goes above & beyond ideological/political differences with a fellow journalist? No media ‘guilds’/Associations/Unions today?
The ‘LeftLib’ brotherhood, which spawns itself in media outlets abroad is quick to comment on the @BJP4India central govt + @PMOIndia. How much longer will they ignore worse attacks on #FoE by provincial governments run by @INCIndia & their allies?
@WSJ @nytimes @FinancialTimes
Despite over a decade of vile abuse, which also stooped to cheap & personal, against @narendramodi from some sections of media, has he or the @BJP4India done anything remotely comparable? Shame on @INCIndia.

@RahulGandhi: India Needs You !

#Nehru: His great grandpa chanted #HindiChiniBhaiBhai and lost miles and miles of Indian land to China. He claimed, "Not a blade of grass grows there." He lost Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to Pakistan and turned Kashmir into hell on earth.
#IndiraGandhi: His grandmother was planted as PM of India by USSR by eliminating Lal Bahadur Shastri. It was KGB that lorded over India during all those years of the Iron Lady's rule. Emergency was clamped USSR backing and Indira did not utter one word against interference.
She kept blaming the "Foreign Hand" of America but was the de facto foreign "Hand" of USSR in India.

#RajivGandhi: Wasn't even able to stand up to the bullying of #AIMPLB. He was such a miserable failure that he sacrificed the interests of Indian Army...

Post 2014, several allegations were made to malign the image of #VeerSavarkar.

Despite the availability of several documents in the public domain, some people chose to believe the blatant lies spread about him by #Communists/#Islamists and vicious politicians.

In this thread, let us try to understand #Savarkar through the eyes of some eminent and revered personalities throughout India.

🔸#MahatmaGandhi: Contrary to popular perceptions, #Gandhi was not at loggerheads with Savarkar.
