It is simply amazing how little Indians understand what Oppression is and what counts for Oppression or Persecution. This is only made worse with the Right Wing claiming that it is the majority of privilege who are the persecuted ones. A thread to explain the Marxist perspective
1. You are persecuted or oppressed if you are Socially, Economically, and Politically sidelined, exploited by the ruling class. These three points have to intersect for persecution and oppression to be called out.
2. Eg. Working Class DBAs are socially oppressed, economically oppressed, and politically oppressed as well. Same with Working Women, Working Class Minorities and Working Class Muslims as well.

The Popular Front of India (PFI) is an extremist & militant Islamic fundamentalist organisation in India formed as a successor to National Development Front (NDF) in 2006.
PFI claims to work in cooperation with human rights activists towards curbing human rights violation in the nation, but in reality they campaigns for Muslim Reservation. Been fooling all in the name of minority rights.

#thread 18 Steps of #Sabrimala
Pathinettampadi are the 18 divine steps to the 'Thirumuttam' of famed Sabarimala temple in Kerala state of India. These steps have a length of 5 feet, width of 9 inches and height of 9 inches.
@Prithviraj1008 @BeenaPP1 @Sowmiya07939778
Earlier, these steps were made out of granite and later in 1985, it was covered by 'Panchaloha', a composition of five metals such as gold, silver, copper, iron and tin. One who undertakes Sabarimala pilgrimage must mark his foots over these steps by carrying an
'irumudikettu' and undergoing a vratam (penance) of 41 days. The pilgrims who climbed the Pathinettampadi for 18 times needs to plant a young coconut tree at Sannidhanam and thereby becomes a 'Guruswami'. In the past, devotees

Where are the Dalits in the Politburo??

A thread....

1. This has been the longest standing complaint against the communist parties in India. And it has been a valid one. The issue began in Maharashtra when union workers didn't ally with the Dalits and Ambedkar because they were Dalits.
2. Comrade Dange also botched this up by pandering to the Reactionary instinct of the workers and peasantry instead of educating them on the value of solidarity in struggle. This was a mistake that Communists till today have to pay for in rhetorical barbs and trolling.

Location: Villages of Malappuram #Thrissur and Kozhikkode #Kerala; 1990s. A #terrorist org Jamiyathul Ihsania kills #RSS #BJP workers but police arrest CPM cadres for murders who were convicted later. Why police failed to sport #terrorism in #Kerala? Who influenced police then?
25 years after a #terrorist org Jamiyathul Ihsania executed murders in #Kerala secretly and successfully put the blame on the shoulders of others now police reveals the truth How many murders did they actually commit? Why #BJP not demanding a comprehensive enquiry by @NIA_India ?

#Kerala had anticipated #Nipah's return, so they examined all encephalitis deaths in the last year. It even led to identifying some other rare diseases: a patient in Malappuram was found to have the rare West Nile virus. There could've been no under-diagnosis, only over-diagnosis
An anecdote we didn't use—Kerala's Rajeev walked into central health secretary's office in Delhi few days after the West Nile case. "Rajeev tell me," she asked, "isn't Malappuram in Kerala?" “Yes,” he said. "If it is Kerala, we don't have to bother. You guys will take care of it"

🇮🇳 #Inde : investi aujourd'hui pour son deuxième mandat, @narendramodi souhaite mettre en place des réformes économiques et sociales qui feraient de lui le Reagan indien.…
🇮🇳 Cette focalisation sur les enjeux économiques et sociaux aux dépends des enjeux identitaires, si elle se confirme dans les mois à venir, pourrait créer des tensions au sein de la vaste famille des nationalistes hindous, le #SanghParivar. A suivre donc.
