THREAD: Australia has a major problem with right wing Christian political influence. It's been bubbling away since John Howard was PM, with power brokers like Bruce Baird wielding their influence over the Liberal Party, hand picking the likes of Scott Morrison, and Stuart Robert.
My attention was first drawn to this when Steve Fielding joined 'Family First'. The Family First Party was a conservative political party in Australia from 2002 to 2017. The party was generally considered to be part of the Christian right.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_Fi…
The most thorough examination of this political trend in Australia has been written in this excellent book which I can highly recommend.

God Under Howard: The Rise of the Religious Right in Australian Politics is a 2005 book by Marion Maddox.

#Halal is not just about food choices or food standards.

It is much more than that.

Call it #EconomicJihad or a #ParallelEconomy with an aim to impose religious superiority.

For a common man , Halal means the way animals are slaughtered for meat.

Actually it's much more than that.

All companies selling any product to Muslims are forced to obtain a Halal Certificate Image
How it works.

Muslim organisations order Muslims through various fatwas that they are supposed to consume only #Halal certified items, failing which they may face severe repurcussions. A common muslim never dares to disobey

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

#Women’ are an integral part of Western propaganda against Islam. When the West was proud of its ‘conservatism’, Muslim women were ‘haremjibi’,‘sensual’,‘objects of sex’. When the West learned to think of itself as progressive, Muslim women 1/9
became ‘captives’, ‘captives’, ‘objects of sex’. In both cases, there is the full support of the "Western Guard" for the "liberation" of #Muslim #women.

Women's liberation was called for 20 years ago to legitimize the #US invasion of #Afghanistan. 2/9
Over the past two decades, women's liberation has been repeatedly cited as an excuse for #American genocide and #warcrimes.

I feel funny when some #Hindus ask me, a #Muslim girl, what can they do to save their religion!

So many things that you can do to save #Hinduism & in turn save the #Secular ethos of this country.

1. Stop looking at Modi, Yogi, RSS, courts for help. Learn to Help yourselves..1/6
2. Start actively associating yourself with organizations like @RSSorg, @VHPDigital @agniveer @VidyaBharatiIN and many others who are working to revive/protect 10000 yr old culture of India.

Do not hide your associations with them. Nothing to be ashamed of in loving India ..2/6
3. If you can not actively participate in the activities of these nationalistic organizations, help them financially if you can. Promote them on Social Media, if you can. Study them and explain others to understand them in the true sense by helping clear the misconceptions. ..3/6

#RememberingNehru 🤡

PM #Nehru GIFTED the Kabo Valley (Manipur, 11,000+ sq. km.) to Burma.

Was it his ancestral property, to gift?

e-pao.net/epSubPageExtra…
Burma paid a monthly lease for the Kabo Valley until 1949. After that, with Nehru's consent, it stopped paying & annexed the valley.

Nehru did not take Parliament's consent for this act. Congress-dominated Parliament did not intervene, nor did later governments.
PM Nehru GIFTED the Coco Islands (Andamans) to #Burma. The Burmese gave them to #CHINA to spy on India.

Chinese airstrip & spy station on Coco Island which PM Nehru GIFTED to Burma.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY. It’s interesting to note that the lebanese -#sectarian- system that shaped the last 30 years and beyond (partially in the civil war), was only made possible because of the constant rivalry of main #christian leaders. THREAD 1/n
Just imagine for one second what would it have been like if Christian leaders (similarly to Chia or Sunni to some extent) had one main voice of representation. This would have lead to a 3-presidential-fight in a modern day #GameofThrones. 2/n
The current Mafia&Militia model wld have never been made possible. Imagining that LB people are actual #tribes. Depending on the positioning of Christians whether with or against it, wld generate a majority to Teheran’s axis or a clear blockade to it (2 vs 1 configuration). 3/n

"What's the Objective of Atheism" asked in a group.

There is no objective of #atheism.

In philosophy of religion its usually understood as the proposition gods do not exist. The #atheist believes this proposition true.

Colloquially it is understood as a lack of belief in gods.
There is, however, #atheist activism which seeks #secular society. This can be referred to as anti-theism rather than #atheism though.

Anti-theism, in the strongest sense, is the belief no one should be theist (believe in gods).
There are some today who conflate philosophical atheism (belief gods do not exist) with anti-theism.

If that were true & the anti- prefix doesn't mean against/opposing and means belief not:

Antivaxxers believe vaccines don't exist
Antiabortionists believe abortions don't exist

Earlier spoke to @BBCR4Sunday
about the barbaric #murder of French teacher Samuel #Paty.An anti-#terrorist enquiry is in full swing with the authorities making information available as quickly as possible.Meanwhile marches will be held today in commemoration of Paty.#CharlieHebdo
The #Elysee Palace said a “national #hommage” would be paid to Samuel #Paty, on a day to be fixed & it will be coordinated with his family. #Macron said the killer had sought to “attack the republic and its values” & the “#terrorists will not succeed… They will not divide us.”
Told @BBCR4Sunday the difficulty of discussing the issues #Paty's murder throw up is that our starting point is pure #barbarity–an utterly evil act that will be condemned by all decent people, including millions of Muslims who live in France & indeed in other parts of the world.

Let me clarify why is it next to impossible for #Hindus to win this ongoing Ideological/ civilizational war with us #Muslims:

If the #Hindu cause is +1, #Islamic cause is -1, and 0 is neutral, then we #Muslims are fighting hard for -1 while U Hindus R aiming for just 0!..(1/12)
..Let me explain:

V #Muslims attack #Hinduism.
U #Hindus attack only Traitors & Pakistan!

V fight for #Islamic cause.
U fight for #Nationalist cause!

We #Muslims want #Sharia state.
You #Hindus want #Secular state! ...(2/12)
... V R fighting #Religious war.
U just fighting political war!

V vote on Islamic grounds.
U vote on #SabkaSathSabkaVikas

V #Muslims never raise voice for #KashmiriPandits but burn cities for #Rohingyas!
U #Hindus speak for not only KP but also for Sufis & Balochis! ..(3/12)

#IslamophobiaInIndia is a MYTH.

#India was ruled by #Hindus in the Ancient and Early Medieval period.

It was in the 7th Cent. CE, that #IslamicInvasions began in the Indian sub-continent.

These invaders came with one objective: to proselytise non-believers (#Kaafirs).

(1/4)
#Islamic invaders from the Middle East/Central Asia invaded India.

🔸They tortured & killed #Hindus.

🔸They raped #Hindu women.

🔸They forcibly coverted #Hindus.

🔸They destroyed hundreds of thousands of our temples.

🔸They looted #India.

(2/4)
Despite all the horrors of the #IslamicRule in India, independent #India, unlike #Pakistan/#Turkey, chose to be a #Secular country.

Why?

Because #SanatanDharma doesn’t preaches hate for other religions.

#Hindus know how to respect other religions and they always have.

#India's obsession with Hindu #victimhood is not confined to Hindutva politicians who, one can assume, spread the canard of "Hindus under attack" for their own political agenda of power, control and coercion. This @Youtube video was posted on a family #WhatsApp group.

It shows a certain 'holy man', by his own description, a #Sanyasi telling his cheering audience a story to illustrate a) the harm caused by #secularism and b) how minority religions are favoured by the state.
It's a cock and bull tale, of course, but worth recounting to show the duplicity, the lies, the latent misogyny, the vacuous logic, the sheer vile propaganda of it all. Apparently, he is visited by a Maulvi and a Padre (!) who start arguing with him and then start beating him up!

#Islam divides the world in 3 types and advises #Muslims to behave differently according to the type of land they are in (1)Dar-al-Harb (i.e. Land for War) (2)Dar-al-Sulh / Dar-al-Ahd (i.e. Land for Treaty) (3)Dar-al-Islam (i.e. Land of Islam). Lemme explain the details ..(1/11)
1st type is Daar-al-Harb (i.e. land for war): Those areas/countries where #NonMuslims R majority or where #NonMuslims R ruling. Here #Muslims are advised to silently increase our numbers by all means: over-populating (#PopulationJihad), Converting NonMuslims (#LoveJihad),..(2/11)
, reducing NonMuslim population by rioting and massacre (#DelhiAntiHinduRiots, #BengaluruRiots, #SwedenRiots), Inviting Refugees from Dar-al-Islam (#Rohingya). So now you know why No Muslim country accepts Muslim refugees as it will have no benefit. ..(3/11)

Be in no doubt. No true full-blooded #Hindutva supporter believes in #Secularism; they wanted a Hindu Rashtra and now they have it, and #BharatiyaModi is pleased to have given it to them. But #InternationalModi still needs the fig-leaf of secularism that @ShekharGupta provides.
This is a more honest account of the week's big development in #India, than @ShekharGupta's weak-kneed attempt to gloss over the real significance of the annihilation of the #secular ideal in India.

True #secularism-defined as the separation of State and its agencies from any, and every, religion-never really took hold in India. When #PrimeMinisterModi places a silver brick in the ground as part of a #Bhoomipujan for #RamMandir, he might as well be burying the Secular Ideal.
The tragedy, of course, is that more than any other group, it was the majority Hindus who would really have benefited from a truly #secular Government. #Secularism in India was maliciously painted as #AntiHindu and as #MuslimAppeasement; it is neither.
The philosophical opposite of #Secularism is #Hindutva. It is a creed that sees every policy, every law, every administrative decision through the lens of Hindu-Muslim division. It negates the freedoms and liberties that common citizens need to thrive and prosper.

31st JULY: BLESSED EVERALD HANSE

~thread~
1. Bl. Everald was born Northamptonshire, educated at Cambridge, and his brother William, who had become a priest in 1579 tried to convert him, but in vain until a sharp attack of illness made him enter into himself.
Bl. #EveraldHanse Image
2. He then went over to Reims (1580-1581),was ordained, and returned but his ministry was very short.

In July he was visiting in disguise some Catholic prisoners in the Marshalsea, when the keeper noticed that his shoes were of a foreign make.
#CatholicChurch #CatholicTwitter
3. He was then closely examined and discovered as a priest.

As yet there was no law against priests, and to satisfy the hypocritical professions of the government's persecutors, it was necessary to find some treason of which he was guilty.
