Now let's come to depiction of Hindu-Muslim marriage in pop culture or such incidences in real life. #LoveJihad theory is fake. But it is an expression of a real problem: Far less Muslim woman are allowed to marry Hindu men. THIS IS TRUE AS SKY IS BLUE. #TanishqAd
THIS IS TRUE AS SKY IS BLUE that on those rarest of rare occasion where a Muslim woman dared to fall in love with Hindu man, he was killed by her family. Ankit Saxena, Rahul Rajput etc. Theory of #LoveJihad is fake, but they fuel the lies anger hate on solid grounds. #TanishqAd
THIS IS TRUE that Muslim community is closed, they do not allow their daughters to marry out of choice, let alone marry a Hindu. It is acceptable to bring a woman of other religion but not allow Mus woman to go to other religion leaving Islam.

It's great to see folx celebrating #KamalaHarris as an #interfaith icon. But, I wonder if we're going to have any serious conversations about how her story represents the way #ChristianSupremacy makes it so common for folx to embrace Christianity over other religions. 1/
#KamalaHarris was raised primarily with her #Hindu mother, but that she now identifies as #Christian. She also went to a #Baptist church as a child, along with friends in her neighborhood. Presumably (like most places), church attendance was normalized, Hindu temples weren't. 2/
So, despite the strong #Hindu influence at home, her #Christian identity became central. She doesn't even identify as both, which is totally possible if your religions aren't exclusivist. eg: I identify with 2 religions (both non-Christian) because of my interfaith upbringing. 3/

Some corners of the internet are attacking @RepEBJ for inviting her constituent, the beloved TX Imam @omarsuleiman504 to give a prayer to Congress yesterday. You might not know who he is, so I'll tell you.
He's known in the Muslim community for being a founder of @MUHSENORG which helps and trains mosques to serve Muslims with special needs and of @yaqeeninstitute which publishes papers on issues facing US Muslims.
Muslims also know him as an ally to Muslim women, bc Sh. omar was one of the first US Muslim religious leaders to take a private and public stand against another TX preacher accused of sexually predatory behavior two years ago.

Thread. I recently tweeted about the link between #Interfaith & CVE/PVE funding, citing the excellent report by @ArunKundnani & #BenHayes.… #Prevent 1/
Yesterday I saw this article entitled "A Sobering Time For Interfaith" by Charlotte Littlewood. (Odd title as Allah s.w.t. Commanded Muslims to be sober at all times)… 2/
Right at the end of the article it says that Littlewood was involved in Countering Violent Extremism Projects. #CVE It is beyond any doubt to me that Interfaith is an attempt to normalise Muslim relationships with #zionists. 3/
