On the Dalai Lama’s first meeting with Nehru, and layers of translation, suspicion, connection:

1/ @DalaiLama recounted meeting in Peking (1954): “The first meeting was somewhat strange+ peculiar... first met him at airport; then... at a cocktail party.
2/ I was considered one of #Chinese leaders. So naturally I was mixing w/ Chinese dignitaries. Chou En-lai introduced me to #Nehru. Then, I think, there was an interpreter who interpreted from #Tibetan to #Chinese +another from Chinese to English. So there were two interpreters.
3/ Now the Chinese always emphasized that translation should be through Chinese interpreters, though among my staff, there were #Tibetans who could speak Tibetan and English both. But the Chinese wanted... the translation shud be from Tibetan into Chinese+ then Chinese into Eng.

1/n #SadarPranam @INCIndia !

Did you know: If primary sources are to be believed,Nehru ji was man who too contributed in getting #ChandrashekharAzad killed?

In this thread I prove same. U may respond should u have substance.

Consult @ShashiTharoor or @Ram_Guha
2/n @INCIndia , let me begin with how #Nehru Ji describes his meeting with #chandrasekharazad in before the latter was killed by the Brits in his own Autobiography.

He completely downplays the Man’s popularity & also calls him & his ilks Terrorist.
3/n While #Nehru had different opinion about #ChandrashekharAzad , his colleagues, Jogesh Chandra Chatterji & Manmathanath Gupta refer to him as the leader of ‘the hero of Kakori, Lahore and Delhi cases’& ‘revolutionaries of Northern India’. Respectively in their books.

“Gandhiji would always mention that I am a Hindu, Christian, Sikh, Muslim, Jain, Buddhist, Parsee and a Jew.”

Ghani, lawyer in South Africa, repeatedly expressed contempt for the native population, claiming they were no better than the “untouchables” of Indian society.

Ghandi was a Vegan, homo and a bloody racist 😨
Kallenbach was a German-Jewish bodybuilder who moved to South Africa in 1896. Gandhi met him in a vegetarian restaurant and soon thereafter became the love of his life.

The plan to invade the Riyasat of #JammuAndKashmir wasn't born in #Lahore but in the residence of #Jinnah at #Aurangzeb road #NewDelhi . Here in the spring of 1947 Col. Akbar Khan & some #Muslim officers of the #British #Indian #Army hatched this plot .
#KashmirAccessionDay26Oct
It was only in October 1947 that Maj. Onkar Singh Kalkat of the Bannu Brigade #PakistanArmy who had not yet been repatriated to #India found files marked Operation Gulmarg Secret while looking for some other documents in the office of Brigadier Murray at NWFP.
Even though he was nearly arrested & sent to #Lahore , Maj.Onkar somehow made it out to #NewDelhi & told the #IndianArmy top brass about the file he had sern which detailed an invasion of #JammuKashmir by tribesmen. He wasn't taken seriously by the Brass .

#Kashmir was an inland sea called Satisaar, inhabited by Pahadis/ Nagas (Sanskrit for mountain).
Brahma’s grandson, Rishi Kashyap on his pilgrimage from South India, (when In Jalandhar) was approached for help to free Satisaar of demons Jalodbhav who were tyrannizing the Nagas.
Kashyap Rishi performed poojas to save Nagas from Jalodbhava.

Tripursundari Sharika Devi, Durga incarnation, came to his aid in the form of an enormous bird/ Haer with a Divine stone in her beak; dropped it on 2 demons & killed them.
That stone transformed into Hari Parbat 🙏🏻
Indra helped Kashyap Rishi kill all demons but Jaldeva escaped. Vishnu ji transformed Himself into Varah & killed him.
Hitt by his tail, the mountains made a pass through which the waters of Satisaar flowed out..
That spot where mountains parted is called Varahmula/ Baramulla.

Nehru did not create IITs. Dr BC Roy, CM of West Bengal, set up first IIT in Cal in 1950; it later moved to Kharagpur. IIT Kharagpur Act came in 1956. Soviet Union set up IIT Powai; US set up IIT Kanpur; Germans set up IIT Madras (all of them with trade surplus and aid).
We learned this in junior school as compulsory GK. I guess General Knowledge is dangerously Right Wing shyt now, so declared by our Left Liberals. What to do? #IIT #Nehru
Just in case @madversity is interested, the idea of setting up Indian institutes of technology took shape in 1946 with Humayun Kabir leading the way and Nalini Ranjan Sarkar Committee preparing a report. Extant records do not mention any role played by Nehru. So.

🇮🇳 #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. reuters.com/article/us-ind…
🇮🇳 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.
🇮🇳 Le nouveau cabinet de @narendramodi compte 58 membres. L'entrée la plus importante est celle de l'ancien dirigeant du @BJP4India @AmitShah au poste de ministre de l'Intérieur. Cet organisateur de génie a largement contribué aux victoires de #Modi. business-standard.com/article/politi…

On the day when #ShyamaPrasadMukharjee was arrested in #Kashmir and died in custody protesting different constitution for Kashmir, let’s remember an aspect, as much in fashion as it is forgotten. On this day when #PriyankaSharma is in Jail for meme of @MamataOfficial . #FoE
Why #Nehru became so uneasy with #Freedom which was just won in one year that he wanted to amend the constitution? Mostly because of few articles in the press, critical of government which he tried to ban, but couldn’t due to fundamental rights. But that was one reason.
One big reason was #NehruLiyaqat pact. Many nationalists, including Dr Mukharjee considered partition temporary aberration and believed that nation will eventually become one. Nehru didn’t like that and a speech which could cause “excitement in neighbouring nation” was included

९ जून १९६४, स्वतंत्र भारत को बड़े भाग्य से देश को एक लाल मिला, द्वितीय प्रधान मंत्री के रूप म, जिसका नाम था लाल बहादुर शास्त्री!
११ जनवरी १९९६, को वह प्रधान मंत्री की कुर्सी ही क्या, दुनिया छोड़ गया.. क्यूँ और कैसे??
क्षमा कीजिए, *११ जनवरी १९६६🙏🏻

Two weeks apart, 2 unnatural deaths happened outside India, #LalBahadurShastri & Dr. #HomiBhabha in January 1966??

Who was responsible, who would benifit from their death, who became 🇮🇳’s PM after Shastri ji?

#MissionShakti is blasphemous as it proves that the earth isn’t flat. This has been done only to snub the Muslims of Pakistan. - Shahid Siddiqui

#NewZealand to cover its missiles under #Hijab in solidarity with the destroyed Pakistan.- Washington Post.
The missile which took part in the #MissionShakti looked like the arrows of Mahabharata period and thus is nothing but representative of Saffron terror. Scientists have found that test of the satellites have complained against rising intolerance in the space. - @nytimes
PM Modi has designed the #MissionShakti missile without tyres. Who will answer for the loss of employment of community which runs family on mending puncture? - @thewire_in reports

🇮🇳wouldn’t have suffered at the hands of @INCIndia for 70yrs had
#SardarVallabhbhaiPatel become our 1st PM!
1946,only 1 of the 16 PCC Presidents voted for #Nehru ,15 for #SardarPatel
#Gandhi used his veto power in favour of #Nehru because he’d threatened to split the Congress!
#Gandhi had a soft corner for #Nehru since the beginning
he had preferred Nehru over #SardarPatel twice for the post of Congress president, in 1929 & 1937.
Nehru made it clear that he’d not play 2nd fiddle to anybody
Gandhi feared that he’d revolt if denied PM’s post!
High Command’s Forced Decision making, Democracy @INCIndia ?
Follies of #Nehru on Kashmir,China proved-
showing utter disregard to overwhelming support from majority of PCCs for #SardarVallabhBhaiPatel
#Gandhi made a blunder by imposing Nehru on Nation weary of Colonial burden!

#Nehru ditched Tibet (like Bhutan was buffer state between🇮🇳& China

We lost to the Chinese despite a valiant fight put up by our soldiers,
what was Nehru doing to retaliate/ push back invading Chinese hordes?
Why did🇮🇳end up becoming a joke that’s compared with 3rd rate🇵🇰
SardarPatel warned #Nehru that China was in a vulnerable position,committed in Korea & not secure in its hold over mainland.

🇮🇳would’ve acquired status of great power
🇵🇰would’ve disappeared from radar of🌎attention
had Patel’s letter & international opinion not been ignored!
“Chinese communists are likely to invade Tibet”.
#Nehru September 1949

Yet, he sacrificed India’s national security interests in Tibet;
to not weaken China’s case in the UN!

#Salutations

Before the arrival of Islam, there had never been any bloodshed in the name of Dharma in this hallowed land of #SanatanDharma

Do #Hindu know that #Nehru invited trouble by ‘importing’ the alien concept of SECULARISM from Europe?
1👇🏻

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!

Let me educate you @sardesairajdeep

The National movement set forth by Bankim Chandra, Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo,
Vande Mataram,mantra of an awakened🇮🇳, was diluted in the hands of Nehru’s leadership!

History-Muslims could dived 🇮🇳 due to being patronized by a faction👇🏻

INC extended concessions to Muslims to join freedom struggle
But
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 !
3
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
Untill now almost all the works published on Gandhi have been hagiographies with none really questioning Gandhi on some hard facts and hence this book comes as something fresh.. #KnowYourLegacy @muglikar_ @indiantweeter @TrueIndology
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
