A man in Mumbai murdered her Hindu Wife for refusing to wear Burqa and for not following Islamic Tradition...!

LJ at its peak...! Image
Refusing to wear a Burqa, husband Mohammad Iqbal Sheikh brutally murdered his Hindu wife Rupali by slitting her throat.
In 2019, both of them did love marriage. Iqbal was constantly pressurizing Rupali to wear Burqa, Hijab. Image
Shamelessly NDTV twisted the entire story!

Pathetic! 👇 Image

Public celebrations of #Navratri in #Maharashtra began in 1926 & are linked to reformers Prabodhankar Keshav Sitaram Thackeray, Dr #BabasahebAmbedkar & Rao Bahadur S.K. Bole. This was a form of counter-culture against #Ganeshutsav, which was then dominated by #Brahmins
Incidentally, #Ganeshutsav was popularised by #LokmanyaTilak in the backdrop of the Hindu-Muslim riots in 1893-94. It soon replaced #Muharram, which was then the most popular festival in the Bombay Presidency, with massive participation from Hindus
The #Ganeshutsav at #Dadar in #Mumbai, saw donations being collected from people across castes. However, the organising committee was dominated by Brahmins, who kept other groups away from it. The singers and religious orators were also Brahmins. In short, they ran the show.

Was buying flowers from my old vendor at Dadar (W) just to be told that he pays Rs 100 daily to a man who is assigned by the BMC and local cops to collect hafta.
That's the going rate for an entire area thick with illegal hawkers. I guess there are around 5k hawkers. So 5L a day.
Now extrapolate this to the entire city. The figure will not be less than Rs 3 crore a day. Or maybe even more. That's the money BMC and local cops are making. The nexus is deep.
That's the basic challenge for the #BJP.
Cleaning up #Mumbai is the toughest job ever.
Another observation - the party that vows to fight for the #Marathi manoos has disowned them even on the streets in their backyard. Dadar West streets are now full of 'peaceful' hawkers. Start walking opp Plaza cinema to understand the change. Dadar will be Dongri soon.

The 1st terror attack in #Mumbai happened on 14 September 1946. The fallout of these unfortunate events also have a link with two iconic figures in #Maharashtra-Acharya Pralhad Keshav Atre and Prabodhankar Thackeray, father of #ShivSena chief Bal Thackeray #history #MumbaiPolice
1946: India was on the boil due to communal tensions & the impending partition of the sub-continent. Mumbai too had seen communal riots take place, allegedly sparked off by the Muslim League.
14 September 1946: Two men who were travelling in a taxi from Bhuleshwar to Dhobi Talao opened fire from a sten gun at Kalbadevi. They killed seven people and injured 20. They had hired a taxi driven by Nariman Basta near Byculla station.

काही महिने पुण्यात राहण्याचा योग आला. खरंच पदरी थोडंतरी 'पुण्य' असल्याशिवाय 'पुण्यनगरीत' प्रवेश मिळत नाही. हे वाक्य म्हणजे पुणेकरांबद्दल पुढं जे काही बोलणार आहे त्याआधी त्यांना खुश करण्याचा 'असफल' प्रयत्न आहे.
असफल एवढ्यासाठीच की पुणेकरांना तुमच्या स्तुती किंवा टीकेनं फरक पडत नाही. म्हणजे शुद्ध मराठीत चाटु लोकांना पुणेकर भाव देत नाहीत. उर्वरीत महाराष्ट्रातल्या लोकांनी पुणेकरांवर  कितीही विनोद करावेत पण पुणेकरांना राग येत नाही. कारण ते बाजारातून जाणाऱ्या त्या निर्विकार हत्तीप्रमाणे आहेत
ज्याला भुंकणाऱ्या कुत्र्यांकडं  लक्ष देण्यात रस नाही. याचा अर्थ त्यांना अजिबात राग येत नाही असं नाही. कारण एकदा एका पुणेकरानं 'तुम्ही सांगली, सातारा, कोल्हापूरचे लोक! तुम्हाला जर एवढाच प्रॉब्लेम आहे पुण्याचा तर इथं नोकरीसाठी का येता?' असा चारचौघात माझा उद्धार केला होता.

While #GaneshUtsav is celebrated across #Maharashtra & India, few know that the genesis of these public celebrations lie in the communal conflict that happened in the late 19th century.
#LokmanyaTilak #Ganapati #Muharram #Hindu #Muslim #Pune #Mumbai #GaneshChaturthi #Tilak
In August 1893, there was a massive communal riot around the Hanuman Temple at Pydhonie in #Mumbai. The #Marathi textile mill workers entered the fray, and the violence intensified. The army was summoned, but more riots were reported from places like Raver and Yeola.
As @BharGo8 notes: Before industrialisation, #Mumbai was a #Hindu minority city. The demographics changed due to the influx of the Marathi workers from the Konkan after the launch of the textile mills. The 1893 riots (not those in 1992-93) changed the social fabric of #Mumbai

My father was also interested in #stocks. When I was a young child, he and his friends would drink in the evening & discuss about the #Stockmarket. I would listen to them and one day I asked him why do these prices fluctuate. (2/10)
He told me to check if there is a news item on Gwalior Rayon in the newspaper, and if there was Gwalior Rayon’s price would fluctuate the next day.

I found it very interesting & I got fascinated by #stocks, I self-taught myself. 3/10

एक विदेशी नागरीक #मुंबई त २ महीन्यात छान #मराठी शिकतो व बोलतो, पण भारतातले काही नागरीक वर्षानुवर्षे इथे राहून राज्यभाषा स्वीकारत नाही.

याला त्यांची हिंदी श्रेष्ठत्वाची भावना, हिंदी राष्ट्रभाषा ही अफवा व मराठी मनातील मराठीचा न्यूनगंड सर्वच कारणीभूत आहे.

कधीकधी एक ओरड उठते की #मुंबई शहरातील सार्वजनिक जीवनात #मराठी भाषा कमी बोलली जाते व ते हळूहळू जटील समस्यचे रूप धारण करेल.

याला सर्वात जास्त कोण जबाबदार आहे हे जाणून घ्यायचे असेल तर ही चित्रफीत आर्वजुन बघा. कदाचित उत्तर व उपाय दोन्ही सापडतील.

फाइनली ईडी ने संजय राउत को गिरफ्तार कर लिया...संजय उसी दिन से उनकी आंखों में खटक रहे थे जब जब सदन में सीना ठोक कर कहा था कि जिस स्कूल में तुम पढ़ते हो उसके हम हेडमास्टर हैं..संजय राउत की गिरफ्तारी तो बीजेपी की साख का सवाल थी....वो तो होनी ही थी....

बाकी आज संजय राउत का स्टाइल
अच्छा लगा...ईडी छापेमारी के बीच शिवसेना नेता संजय राउत की तरफ से ट्वीट कर लिखा गया है कि झूठी कार्रवाई..झूठा सबूत, मैं शिवसेना नहीं छोड़ूंगा..मैं मर भी जाऊं तो समर्पण नहीं करूंगा..जय महाराष्ट्र.. महाराष्ट्र और शिवसेना की लड़ाई जारी रहेगी..

इन सबके बीच मेरा विश्लेषण ये है कि अब
गोदी मीडिया को चिंतित हो जाना चाहिए...चापलूसी में अपनी ईडी अब गोदी मीडिया को पछाड़ रही है.... अंजना,रुबिका,अमीश,अरनब के लिए ये स्थिति चिंताजनक है....

As the cops surround #ED's #Mumbai office, those shedding crocodile tears for #SanjayRaut must make a small attempt to understand the #PatraChawl scam. It is a classic case in which politicians and builders destroy the lives of poor residents to make millions. A thread
Siddharth Nagar, popularly known as Patra Chawl, is located in the northern Mumbai suburb of Goregaon. It had a total of 672 houses, spread over an area of 47 acres. In 2008, the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) took up the redevelopment project.
MHADA gave the contract to Guru Ashish Construction Private Limited (GACPL) to rehabilitate 672 tenants and to redevelop the locality. A tripartite agreement was signed between GACPL, the tenants’ society and MHADA for the redevelopment of #PatraChawl.

Mumbai has some of the most interesting named places. I tried to dig in and find out more about the history of the names of these places. A thread..
Starting with My favourite Bhendi Bazar. Bhendi Bazaar has nothing to do with Bhindis. Infact, it was named after an area which was located behind the Crawford Market and was called ‘behind the bazaar’, which over the years became‘Bhendi Bazaar’.
While Crawford Market was named after the first Municipal Commissioner of Bombay Arthur Crawford. This guy was involved in corruption and has had lived a rather adventurous life.

What #lies you will be fed over next few days when it comes to #Aarey

#Influencers telling you how the car-shed in Aarey is not damaging ecology of a leopard🐆 habitat.

#Kanjurmarg, is not feasible because of litigation when truth is there actually was a proposal to save it.
How previous projects inside #AareyForest automatically allows construction of a massive #MetroCarShed in eco-sensitive area. Because the best way to move forward is to repeat the past.

Everyone fighting to save Aarey are rich people who never travel in local trains.

There will be massive cost escalation if car shed is shifted & moved to #Kanjurmarg plot where a car-shed is planned anyway for another line.

Truth is, costs may rise but #Mumbai can afford few thousand crores to save a crucial green lung & leopard 🐆 habitat.

A thread 🧵 - 1/16

#sassoons #rotschild #wealth #bombay #mumbai
The name Rothschild has always been a mystery. The Rothschild family is known for its centuries-old banking business, wealth and ability to influence global events. If a family is compared to Rothschild, one can imagine how wealthy the family would be.

India has seen 2 families who were compared to the Rothschilds, the Rothschild of India, the Jagat Seths and the Rothschild of the East, the Sassoons.

#HeatWaves are soon to become the new normal for #Mumbai.
While steps are being taken to make the city climate-resilient, impacts of #HeatStress are sprinting ahead threatening Mumbai's food security, public health, ecosystem & economy.

#HeatStressMumbai 🔥 A THREAD Image

#HeatWaves in #Mumbai has led to an uptick in:
heat-related illnesses & deaths
power outages
crop failure
drinking water shortages
risk to wildlife
Global evidence demonstrates clear causal links b/w heatwave intensity & #ClimateChange

As per @rocksea, data for 70 years shows that “the number of heatwaves is directly in response to #GlobalWarming.”
