#OnThisDay, in 1951, the famous Somnath Temple in #Gujarat was restored to its former glory. In the words of the then President of India, Dr Rajendra Prasad, it proved that “the power of reconstruction is always greater than the power of destruction". 1/9

The Somnath #Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva as ‘Lord of the Moon’, has been one of the most sacred shrines in #India for over 1,500 years. Due to its fame as a centre of wealth, it was attacked and plundered by Sultan Mahmud of Ghazni in 1026 CE. 2/9

A few years after this infamous sack, the temple was restored and continued to serve as an important pilgrimage centre. But over the centuries, the temple was attacked and plundered repeatedly. 3/9

I have high hopes for these kids! #UK is the greatest nation on earth. It is a tolerant and respectful society. The English cousins respect you and value you regardless of your background. Soon these kids will be exposed to the wider society through the education system.
He will soon be able to escape the clutches of the ignorance and intolerance that his parents have raised him up in! As he grows up, he will understand that it's OK to respect #Women. It's OK to respect your neighbors regardless of his creed, colour or religion.
It's OK to be tolerant of others. Those who look different to you. Those who have a different #religion to you. Those who speak a different language to you. Those who have different traditions and cultures to you. Those who may not agree with you.

Thread on "Suppose your whole life you tried to pursue you dream project. But your dream project remains incomplete.

Then what? Will your energy of all these years go in waste?"

1) This question is answered somewhere in Bhagvad Gita.
2/ Arjuna campers such life of unfinished missions as "Cloud which started from sea but did not reach the place were it had to pour rain. In the midway, the cloud is disbursed and lost."

"So what will be the fate of such a cloud?" asked Arjuna.

#bhagvadgita #gita #religion
3/ Krisna replied, "Nothing is lost in this Universe. If a person starts his life mission but for some reason he is unable to complete his mission in this birth, than his work will be carried forward with him in his next birth".

Now take example of Galileo.

Ex-PM #ImranKhan addressing a rally. Entire focus is on incitement, using vocabulary reminiscent of 1960s Mideast: conspiracy+colonialism+anti-Americanism+religion; & 15yo drone attacks. Xenophobia was used as a political tool for yrs. Khan has hijacked it to unsettle #Pakistan.
Besides the above, ex-PM's strategy is to present himself as a victim of alleged international conspiracy instead of accountability for why his govt crashed under inexperience+mismanagement, squandering an impressive 2018 victory. /2
Part of the victimhood narrative is a claim that a pro-#ImranKhan TV channel is blocked in cable broadcasts across the country. But moments ago, #Pakistan's TV regulator called out this disinformation: /3

El Malestar en la Cultura (1931) Sigmund #Freud

Texto que define pulsión de muerte, eros, la líbido, y cómo se desarrolla la vida individual en la vida social

Hilos anteriores en

Gracias x la difusión!
Se trata de un texto tardío de #Freud, que puede leerse casi como un “testamento”.
Le interesa dejar en claro cuáles son realmente sus tesis centrales, las tensiones básicas de la vida psíquica y social, sus pulsiones y tensiones fundamentales en relacion con la "cultura"
El Individuo y la sociedad se requieren y necesitan mutuamente.

Los individuos buscan placer y evitar dolor. La sociedad busca y requiere que individuos “adaptados” que no exageren en una direccion y puedan tolerar ambos.

Ese equilibrio es inestable y siempre hay conflicto

مقالتي حول الماريجوانا واخطارها الصحية والاجتماعية والاقتصادية ورأي الدين في الموضوع.

My latest article about Marijuana; its negative impact on health, community, and economy, as well as religion’s stance on the subject.

-Translation in Thread-

1- research shows very limited if any specific advantage for marijuana (THC, CBD, etc) in treating any medical conditions. And to date, the FDA has not approved a marketing application for cannabis for the treatment of any disease or condition.
2- there is some research that shows some applications in adjunct treatment of a rare kinds of epilepsy ( Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome) and also as an appetite stimulant in cancer, AIDS or Alzheimer’s patients.

Is the #Ahmadiyya Muslim Community a new #religion?

Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih Vaa was asked various questions about Ahmadiyyat. Huzoor atba, in a letter dated 23 March 2020, gave the following reply to those questions:
“[…] As far as the #Ahmadiyya Jamaat is concerned, it is not a new religion; rather, it is the true community of #Islam which #Allah the Exalted has established in exact accordance with the prophecies of the Founder of Islam, the #HolyProphet Muhammad saw, the Chosen One. (2/8)
“Just as #Allah the Exalted sent prophets in different regions and at different times for the reformation and betterment of the world and revealed teachings to them to guide the people in the past, He also sent our Master and Guide, the #HolyProphet Muhammad saw,...(3/8)

زرتشتی مذہب (Zoroastrianism)
4000سال پراناعقیدہ
زرتشتی مذہب کی ابتداء 4000 سال قبل فارس سےھوئی اور یہ توحیدی مذہب تھا۔ اسکےپیروکار پارسی یا مجوسی کہلاتے ہیں۔ انکی مقدس کتب دساتیر اور اوستاہیں۔
یہ فارس(ایران کا پرانا نام) کاسرکاری مذہب (600 ق م تا 650 عیسوی)تھا
#History ImageImage
اور اب بھی موجود ھے۔
اس مذہب کی بنیاد زرتشت (زرتھسشترا) نے رکھی جسکے بارے میں خیال کیاجاتا ھے کہ وہ مغربی افغانستان یا شمال مشرقی ایران میں پیداھوا۔
وہ ایک ایسے خاندان میں پیدا ھوا تھا جو ایک مشرکانہ مذہب کی پیروی کرتا تھا یعنی
پیغمبر زرتشت نےبہت سے دیوتاؤں والےمذہب کا انکار کیا۔
زرتشت پیغمبر کی پیدائش اور ابتدائی زندگی کے بارے میں بہت ہی کم معلومات دستیاب ہیں۔ زرتشتی روایت کے مطابق، زرتشت کو تیس سال کی عمر میں ایک الہی نظارہ ملا۔
جس میں وہ ماننے لگا کہ صرف ایک ہی خدا ھے خالق۔ اس نے یہ بھی سکھایا کہ ایک خدا جسے احورا مزدا کہتے ہیں، تمام عبادت کے لائق ھے۔

[#thread] #CeJourLà Quelques mots d'#histoirereligieuse, contemporaine mais un peu ancienne. Il y a un siècle, le #28octobre 1921, l'@UnivCathoParis est en fête : son recteur, Alfred Baudrillart, est sacré évêque à #NotreDame. 1/11 #religion #catholiques #histoire
2. Alfred Baudrillart (1859-1942) est ordonné prêtre en 1893. Professeur à l'@UnivCathoParis, l'abbé Baudrillart en devient le recteur en 1907 (époque de la crise moderniste), succédant à Mgr Péchenard, nommé à l'évêché de Soissons @diocese02.
3. Historien de l'Eglise, il échoue à se faire élire à l'Académie française en 1910, pour succéder au cardinal Mathieu (c'est Mgr Duchesne, de l'@ef_rome, qui remporte l'élection, par 17 voix sur 32).

#RomanSiteSaturday - The Pantheon🏛️

(1/8) Located in #Rome, Italy, the Pantheon is arguably the best surviving example of Imperial #Roman architecture. Richly decorated with Corinthian columns and a variety of coloured marble, it is truly a remarkable site.

#History #Classics
(2/8) Originally constructed during the reign of the emperor Augustus under the patronage of Marcus Agrippa, the current temple is actually a reconstruction undertaken by Trajan and Hadrian following an earthquake. Finished in 126CE, the original inscription was retained:

"M[arcus] Agrippa L[ucii] f[ilius] co[n]s[ul] tertium fecit"

"Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, made [this building] when consul for the third time."

‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.…
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.

En el desierto #Nazca (o #Nasca) al sur del #Perú, unas misteriosas líneas trazadas en el suelo rocoso representan #animales de la fauna local y extrañas criaturas. ¿Quiénes hicieron estas figuras y por qué?
¡Adentro #hilo! 🧵
#Arqueología #Historia #LineasDeNazca #NazcaLines
¿Cómo trazaron las imágenes? Y lo que es más importante, ¿quiénes y por qué? Todo tipo de explicaciones esotéricas se han desarrollado en torno a las Líneas de #Nazca, cuya destreza parece fuera del alcance humano. ¿Pistas de aterrizaje realizadas por #extraterrestres?
Si lo que te atrae de las Líneas de #Nazca es el tema de los #alienígenas, siento decepcionarte, ya que este #hilo trata sobre #Arqueología y evidencias científicas. Intentaré explicar lo más singular de esta extraordinaria cultura, una de las más importantes de #Perú.

I think its time to talk about #ReligiousFreedom and exactly where one person’s #freedom starts, and another’s ends. And no I’m not talking about a woman’s body dividing cells, I’m talking about breathing adults who #vote
#ReligiousFreedom is SO important to everybody. And I agree that I ALSO want my own #FreedomOfReligion. But other people DON’T get to define that.
I am in charge of my own #belief systems. You could even say I’m RESPONSIBLE for them🤔
No matter how wacky they got, the point in time where I am no longer allowed to practice my #Religion, would start IF it harmed another breathing adult, and that word #harm is pretty loaded too, isn’t it?
How do we define #Freedom?
How do we define #Life?
