Some thoughts on India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. 1. Pandit Nehru had a less than mediocre academic record, earning what was called a "Gentleman's Pass" from Oxford University.
No other scion of the Nehru dynasty would graduate for the next 70 years. #scholar
2. Pandit Nehru was less than a successful lawyer, which left him with a lot of free time to indulge his other pleasures.
This was in stark contrast to Sardar Patel, who left a flourishing law practice to jump into the freedom movement. #professional
3. Pandit Nehru became President of the Indian National Congress after Shri Motilal Nehru - his father - urged Mahatma Gandhi to give him a chance. #dynast
After the 4th & before the 18th century, the function of the European States was not only to control the worldly life of its subjects, but also to secure salvation in the other🌎, key to which was in Church’s possession!
The Church excommunicated those who violated rules,👇🏻
& closed gates of heaven for him.
It was State’s duty then to burn him alive/torture to death!
Jews were deprived of all citizenship rights & stigmatized as
KILLERS of Christ!
State was termed as
‘SECULAR ARM’ of Church,
State admitted its main function was to serve Church!
INC extended concessions to Muslims to join freedom struggle
They remained British allies upto the end.
Leader of a leftist faction (harbouring a deep seated animosity against #Hindu society & culture, ignorant of both #Sanatana / Islam) in #Congress was JL #Nehru !
It had been proclaimed in 1947 that the so called communal problem had been solved forever;
hardly 70yrs have passed and the Muslims have started speaking the same language which they used before the partition of India?
I am currently reading this wonderful book by @Koenraad_Elst which gives amazing insight abt the defence of Godse and exposes the blunders commited by Gandhi (I refuse to use Mahatma), have decided that will be tweeting extracts from the same as I go along. #KnowYourLegacy
This book also provides an opportunity for the next gen to learn abt the mistakes commited during the freedom struggle and more importantly also abt the fact that it was not a single person or party which helped us attain independence #KnowYourLegacy@muglikar_@TrueIndology
