Chronology samajhiye.
From the time #COVID19 broke out, one wondered how would the world's sickest, most violent and regressive minds not use a highly contagious pandemic to wage #CoronaJihad on kafirs.
* Soon, videos like this one started emerging.
[Contd]
* Then came a spate of TikTok videos urging co-religionists to throw away #coronavirus masks, rely on skullcaps.
* The vids seemed smoothly coordinated, came by dozens. We laughed them off as #COVIDIOTS.
* There were also videos urging to defy Modi's call for social distancing.
* Bihar police find Uighur Muslims and other foreigners hiding there. Arrests made.
* Delhi govt bans mass assembly, India on alert at airports etc, but Tablighi Jamaat, a conversion org, holds #Nizammudin with 100s of foreigners.
* Infy guy urges open spitting to spread #COVID.

*I AM COMPLETELY AGAINST ANY GATHERINGS*

People here who are lashing out at the whole community aren't showing concern but #Islamophobia

Thread about their entire blame game.
#NizamuddinFiasco #Nizamuddin
* Event took place on 16/3/20

* Delhi imposed Section 144 on 22nd March with that thaali bajaana & zero accountability of those who violated the law for real.

People during #JanataCurfew went mad. There were massive amount of people on roads even after the 144 section...
* 24/3/2020 Modiji announced the lockdown. Lockdown was and is definitely a good idea but it was so random and there's still no proper arrangements done for the one's stranded in different places.

This is how mismanagement looks like...

A yr ago today, I watched in real-time an attack unfold before my eyes. On a Jummah in March last yr, a white supremacist attacked two #mosques in #Christchurch killing 51 Muslim worshippers as they prayed. Pls take a moment to pray for the victims & their families today.
Scars of the #Christchurch massacre linger. Slowly the shock recedes until all we feel is the echo of the tragedy. One yr on after Haji Daoud Nabi of Al Noor #mosque in #Christchurch uttered the words “Welcome, brother” only to b met w/ bullets in response theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
Aya Al-Umari's brother was one of the victims of the #Christchurch #mosque attack. “Every day I feel like Hussein is with me. Any decisions that I make, I just think about, OK, what would Hussein do in this situation?" she said.

Running anti-Muslim propaganda/misinformation is not limited to “North Korean Channels” or “Godi (lap) media” or nationalist journalists/anchors in India. A thread. 1/n
Let's talks about @NDTV- Indian liberals favourite channel - and a story they ran last week on its website: “ISIS-Linked Couple Had Plans Of Suicide Attack In Delhi: Police Sources"
ndtv.com/delhi-news/jam…
The story, based entirely on unnamed sources, was their top story for some time, and uncritically pushes a government narrative that weeks of peaceful protests against the CAA were a “jihadist conspiracy” [sic].

To Michael O'Leary (.@Ryanair)
A note for Michael O’Leary, some of the worst atrocities in history where 'Muslim men' have NOT been responsible:
1) The Nanking Massacre (1937)
First, on our decrepit list of human rights violations, is the Nanking slaughter, or how it is often referred to as: ‘The Rape of Nanking.’ Reports of this human rights violation suggest a mass rape of unheard-of proportions even for wartime, with
even rumors of Chinese families being forced to rape each other. Competitions were held between Japanese soldiers to see who could murder one hundred Chinese civilians the fastest with simply the use of a sword. About 300,000 human beings' lives were lost in this scary ordeal.

Countering Islamophobia

A hard hitting perspective by @SwalihaAsiya

Fellow Indians, it is time to address the elephant in the room. You know what I am talking about.

Though this may make you uncomfortable, I assure you that having this conversation is the need of this hour.
Why is Mangalore/India becoming increasingly Islamophobic? Why are there media sites on FB openly using communal slurs on Muslims? Why are Muslims called terrorists?

Why is large portion of India's internet community making allegations without evidence to malign #IndianMuslim?
Because the facts remain unchanged

1. Law enforcement does discriminate & it did, during the #AntiCAAProtests that happened in December

2. Attack on Masjids, in Delhi and Mangalore happened without any provocation or condemnation.

3. Media channels acted as RW propaganda tools

@jewssf @AmemeHack @inmydumpster Again the defining word is "atrocities" surely when the military of any country commit atrocities it is not unreasonable to condemn those actions. We know the background to the challenge.
@jewssf @AmemeHack @inmydumpster The only reason for anyone to feel uncomfortable with calling out the BoD, is that there is a suggestion that they have some responsibility for the actions of the Israeli Military. There is no implication in the request that is the case. Clearly they are not going to respond.
@jewssf @AmemeHack @inmydumpster However, whether or not anyone agrees with the counter demands made by Rachel in her tweet surely it would not be unreasonable for such atrocities to be condemned? Do we know if Rachel was the originator of the demands or was it a retweet?

Whilst some of the Board of Deputies' #TenPledges to end the #antisemitism crisis are problematic and arguably contradictory, the ferocity of the response from many on the Labour left is unwarranted and reflects discriminatory attitudes towards Jewish community advocacy. /1
The BoD is being accused of arrogance and interference in the Labour Party's internal affairs as if the central issue highlighted by the pledges - antisemitism and our leadership's failure to tackle it - had absolutely nothing to do with the communities it represents. /2
From all the fuss, we might imagine the #TenPledges to be an initiative without precedent, but challenging political parties and election candidates to sign up to commitments of this type is a campaigning tactic used by many community bodies and campaign groups. /3

The President of the United States retweeted a picture of Democratic leaders in a headscarf and turban, calling them corrupt and implying they are siding with "the Ayatollahs" demonstrating once again the vulnerability of Muslims in the US. This is a critical moment for us. 1/
The picture highlights a deeply disturbing truth, which is that this President thinks that a good way to insult someone is by painting them as Muslim or as sympathetic to a Muslim country. This is deeply damaging to Muslims in the US & paint us as "the other. 2/
#Islamophobia, like #antisemitism, is damaging to ALL Americans. It undermines our values and the strength of our word. It tarnishes our image and our ability to lead with example. It makes us afraid of each other and weakens the social fabric of our great country. It is wrong 3/

Received this WhatsApp message today morning.

*A wake up call: alarming as it sounds for INDIA.*

According to a Harvard University study, the *Islamisation of a country cannot be stopped once the Muslim population reaches 16 percent of the total population.* 1/1
This is what Islam expert, Nikoletta Incze, said on 22 June'19 on Hungarian public television.

Incze points out that many countries that are Islamic today were originally Christian, for example Turkey, Egypt & Syria. 👇👇

In other countries as well, Islam supplanted the previous religion: Pakistan was Hindu, Afghanistan was Buddhist, Iran was dominated by Zoroastrianism. 👇

I'm a white Muslim.

I've endured;

• My house getting torched, TWICE
• Attacks in the street
• Verbal abuse
• Death threats
• Doxxing
• Getting called a "race traitor, Jihadist" & worse.

Boris Johnson has enabled the above

I am TERRIFIED of a Tory majority government.
2/ I live with daily abuse and threats just because I'm Muslim.

Journalists like @paulhutcheon gaslit me using my mental health condition, #BPD, to "infer" I'm a terrorist.

I got credible death threats due to him, yet the Daily Record DEFENDED it.

Muslims are scapegoated 3
3/ The Tories have a massive #Islamophobia problem.

Because they deflect or deny it, people think they can get away with it too.

From Truro to Inverness, Muslims are facing increased abuse.

All because the Prime Minister and his party have made Islamophobia mainstream.

In response to the concerns of Islamophobia in the Conservative Party raised by @MuslimCouncil, Mr Boris Johnson said: "...if anybody is done for Islamophobia or any other prejudice or discrimination in the Conservative Party they are out first bounce"

Let's test that, shall we?
Karl McCartney has repeatedly retweeted "far-right propaganda" from the Islamophobic bigots Tommy Robinson & Katie Hopkins as uncovered by @hopenothate

He is the Party candidate in Lincoln.

Is he out "first bounce"?

What about Anjana Patel, the Conservative candidate in Brent North?

The Tories Knew About This Candidate's Anti-Muslim Tweet, But Let Her Stand Anyway.

Is she going to be out "first bounce"?

STATEMENT: The Muslim Council of Britain Responds to Chief Rabbi's Comments | 26 November 2019
#Islamophobia in @Conservatives has been approached with denial, dismissal & deceit by the party. Thread.

1) During his premiereship, @BorisJohnson has:

i) Employed Chloe Westley in his Number 10 digital team - she called far-right Islamophobe a "hero" theguardian.com/politics/2019/…
@Conservatives @BorisJohnson ii) Promoted @ZacGoldsmith - a man who embodied #Islamophobia when he ran a racist campaign to be Mayor of London businessgreen.com/bg/news/308143…

... Mr. Goldsmith has still not apologised

[Thread] Throughout my research on #Islamophobia, one of the most common tactics by anti-Muslim figures is to smear politically active Muslims/Muslim orgs, who are critical of govt policy, as "#Islamist."
As, @andreas_krieg states, the word is vague, & remains a contested catch-all concept, describing ideology, political movements, & forms of government that borrow Islamic references but are essentially presented as separate from Islam. lobelog.com/laying-the-isl…
@andreas_krieg In the Middle East, Arab autocrats use the label to dispel any social movement calling for #democracy. foreignpolicy.com/2018/12/11/sau…

Baroness Warsi (the first Muslim to
attend Tory Cabinet meetings).

THEY, CLEARLY, KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE TORY PARTY, how #racist, #xenophobic, and nasty this #Conservative Party really is, they were right at the top of it, #BaronessWarsi ... the #Cons Party's most sen fig
Some key things to understand. Andrew Lansley (1st quote) was in the #Cameron Cabinet.
Baroness Warsi was Tory Chairman for this, Theresa May Government. Her comment, (2), was made LAST SUNDAY, her other quote (3) was from 2016.
She was so disturbed about the disgraceful attitudes she could see all the time that she decided to blow the lid on her own, rabid, Party. Her incendiary comment , in 2016, about there being "a simmering UNDERBELLY of #Islamophobia" came from her own experiences dealing with

Netflix bends to Saudi Arabia.

But runs non-stop propaganda and #HinduPhoblic content against Hindus in India. @NetflixIndia must be completely boycotted.

@reedhastings
@NetflixIndia @reedhastings Funny coming from apologists of radical Islam who work to turn India into Saudi.

My point was about how MNCs bend to power. A bit dense for you.

@NetflixIndia @reedhastings What else do Indian "seculars" do but be house slaves of Islamists. Or did I miss your many articles which criticize it? So typical to blame "Saudi" not the Islamic Sharia they follow. That's what apologists do.

Reportage from October's #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth for the lovely folx @labhopping.
Random projected pride in #ISRO should translate also to caring about how India's top scientific institutes are set up. Such conditions are not conducive to good science. Please read, share.
@labhopping #Suicide in #Indianscience isn't an aberration & we need to question the socioeconomic structures that set it up this way. From rampant #casteism to #Islamophobia (particularly in the wake of #Kashmir occupation) and gendered harassment--the accounts were deeply upsetting
All this plus institutes like the #IITs, #IISc are protected by media gags on students and faculty who fear being expelled if they speak publicly about these issues. Deep gratitude to everyone who spoke w me regardless. Y'all brave and resilient and this is how we get to hope.

Rajiv Malhotra's supporters, leveling thoughtful criticism, along with a suggestion for a new research project.

Remember this the next time somebody suggests a debate, as if there were two sides to some academic argument here. There's not. This is scholarship vs. insults & hate.
Another fine bit of reasoning here.

Why am I sharing these? To illustrate what I face for sharing academic views and research. This isn't my characterization of those who smear me; it is their level of argumentation, in their own words.

I'm just going to put it out there people -- Can ya'll please curse me out in संस्कृतं? And if you think that Sanskrit doesn't have some really salty words and phrases, well, you might want to keep studying.

Tomorrow, the US House Subcommittee on Asia, will be hosting a historic hearing on Human Rights in South Asia. One witness will be @AartiTikoo, a war-monger, Islamophobe, rabid Indian nationalist, and denier of human rights violations in #Kashmir. IMP THREAD (1/23)
This past March, @AartiTikoo was cheering military violence against Kashmiris on both sides of the border, and for pushing a policy that could lead to nuclear war. (2/23)
@AartiTikoo will be there to cheer on India's brutal clampdown on #Kashmir. She has recently praised PM @narendramodi, and thanked him for "strengthening Indian democracy." (3/23)

THREAD: Time for another tasty thread with resources. No matter if you're a scholar, student, or general public, if you're #antiracist & #antifascist, here's a thread abt misappropriation of medieval symbols. Enjoy/ be disgusted. 1/19 #medievaltwitter #academictwitter #shakerace
The runic symbol (called the 'Odal'/'Othala') represented the "O" sound in Germanic languages before adoption of the Latin alphabet. It's reconstructed proto-Germanic name means "heritage." The far-right adopted this symbol (early 20th cent) to construct a mythic Aryan past. 2/19
The Tyr/Tir rune: another symbol misappropriated by the far-right in their attempt to idealize Nordic &/or Aryan heritage. It represents the letter "T" in the runic alphabet & the symbol also represented the Norse god Tyr, originally steming from proto-indo/euro god Dyeus. 3/19
