How many of you know abt him?
When thousands of jellyfish washed ashore by Arabian Sea stung visitors on the Girgaum Chowpatty, a constable on duty worked tirelessly to keep people off the beach. When few heeded his warning he went home and read up on the creature.
The next day, he went to the beach with a bagful of lemons, bought with his own money, and administered lime juice on every sting injury as he had read it would provide relief.
This incident was probably a glimpse of the rare quality that led the same man, assistant SI Tukaram Omble, to pounce on a gun-toting terrorist in the wee hours of November 27, and pin him down bare-handed, inspite of five bullets lodged in his body.

THREAD: Do you know how did Urdu media peddle conspiracy theories on #MumbaiAttacks?

Prof Rakesh Sinha and his team did an analysis. I’m sharing their takeaways here.

@roznamasahara called it as Mossad and CIA conspiracy like 9/11. #MumbaiTerrorAttack (1/n)
Nisheman and Rahmaan-e-Mulk gave a new conspiracy theory.

These #MumbaiTerrorAttacks, according to them, were done by Hindu fundamentalists and Mossad. (2/n)
According to Inquilab Urdu Times, "Hindu Terrorists" joined hands with Pakistan Terrorists to neutralise #Karkare.

Imagine the level of hatred. (3/n)

What has always baffled me is why did India not respond at all after #MumbaiTerrorAttack on 26/11 in 2008?

Even minor countries respond in at least some military way after a terror attack. But consider what India faced in just 2008 alone (attached chart) and yet no response? 1/5
More than 450 Indians had been murdered in terrorists attacks in 2008 alone. 2004, 2005, 2006 & 2007 had not been any less brutal years.

And yet, despite all of this carnage kind of culminating into the #MumbaiTerrorAttacks on 26/11, the Congress government kept silent. Why? 2/5
One plausible explanation could be that the decision makers inside government were compromised.

For example, we now know, through his own views, that Shiv Shankar Menon (FS in 2008) feels that it is legitimate for USA to decide India's policies. Was he compromised then? 3/5

Soon after the #USRIOTS, #Islamists in #India have given a call for similar riots in India. They are trending #MuslimLivesMatter. Shame they didn’t say that #LivesMatter, & not the religion.
In this thread, I would like to prove that #Islamophobia_In_India is a MYTH.
India was partitioned on the grounds of religion twice. First in 1905 and second in 1947. But the 1947 Partition is significant to the current scenario. All of us know the demographical condition of India at that time. It was a #Hindu majority and it still is.
Despite this fact, #India has always been a secular country. The basics behind this #Secularism is in the ethics of #Hinduism. NO religious text in #Hinduism promotes hatred on religious backgrounds.
