#Sikh is trending in the UK thanks to some less-than-well-informed comments on the role of Sikhs in the First World War. A great opportunity to fill in some gaps

These #CABProtests riots have three main actors.
1) #Islamist groups frustrated since #Modi won a 2nd term earlier this year.
2) #Communists & #Naxalites frustrated with the irrelevance of their ideology globally.
3) The #Congress looking to regain #political traction.
Most of the players in these three actors are being handled invisibly via strings heading into 10JP & Islamabad . As @AatriTikoo says intelligence units have known of this for long , Naxalite groups have been talking of 2020 for long.
Another actor will soon join in.
Remember the #Sikh referendum issue. This will tie into these protests in a matter of days . Here's hoping @capt_amarinder can control that tide.
He's one of the last good men left in the Left .

@Himansh00830841 @Khilji_Iqra @AliyaNazki Islamic invaders & tyrants always saw Brahmins as The biggest stepping stone in conversion of Hindus to islam.
As brhamins usually didn't give up on faith.
So that is why they see Brahmins their prime enemy also it is easy to use unchecked hate speech against Brahmins in India.
@Himansh00830841 @Khilji_Iqra @AliyaNazki If anyone knows about "Aurangzeb's dream" knows about the blatant Hindu hating nature of Mughals.

Aurangzeb was told that if he can convert Brahmins of Kashmir then most of the Hindus of India will convert by following them as Brahmins are the biggest stepping stone in his aim.
@Himansh00830841 @Khilji_Iqra @AliyaNazki Aurangzeb launched his Mission to convert kashmiri Brahmins 100s of brahmins were killed to spread fear.

Kashmiri Brahmins went to #sikh Guru for help & negotiate with Aurangzeb (if Im not wrong then 9th Guru @JungNihang can confirm it)

In return #Aurangzeb beheaded Sikh Guru.

ETHNIC CLEANSING & CULTURAL GENOCIDE IN #KASHMIR

Since the coming of #Islam to #Kashmir, since 1389 there have been 7 recorded exoduses of Kashmiri #Hindus and #Sikhs due to genocide and persecution at the hands of radical Islam.
2/n
The first exodus OF #Hindus from #Kashmir (AD 1389-1413) was under the Shah Mir Dynasty. Tourists may not notice that the iconic Dal Lake has a mass grave of Kashmiri Hindus known as "Bhatt Mazar" or "grave of Brahmins".
3/n
The second mass exodus (1506-1585) of Kashmiri #Hindus and #Buddhists was under Ali Shah Chak Dynasty, which made the persecution of Kashmiri Hindus a royal policy.

They boasted that they killed 900 Hindus daily for refusing to convert to Islam.

A number of people on here have drawn my attention to this @TheSun story about #census2021 “Scots face 'baffling' list of 21 sexualities to choose from including gynephilic and skoliosexual” thescottishsun.co.uk/news/4894324/s…
While many people will find the @TheSun story amusing, it relates to a serious issue already raised by @SP_European with @NatRecordsScot who are responsible for census questions in 2021 and who are offering 21 answers in the “sexual orientation” question
When @ScotParl unanimously agreed to a bill asking voluntary questions on sexual orientation, there was no suggestion of “asexual” & “skoliosexual”. This expansion of the definition could undermine the understanding of, and protections for, gay & bi people.

As white nationalist "Straight Pride" rally draws close in #Modesto, local #LGBTQIA center targeted by neo-Nazi posters promoting Daily Stormer, less than a month after local #Sikh temple + priest were attacked by man screaming, "Go back to your country!" itsgoingdown.org/neo-nazi-poste…
On August 24th, long-time anti-LGBTQ activist Don Grundmann will rally alongside Mylinda Mason, a local GOP organizer and head of California Republican Assembly - Stanislaus. In the past, Mylinda has run for a seat on the @Stanislaus_GOP Central Committee. itsgoingdown.org/modesto-straig…
@Stanislaus_GOP Grundmann and Mason's event, according to their website, promotes the "inherent superiority" of "whiteness," the "Caucasian" race, "Western Civilization," and attacks the LGBTQ community as "sodomites" that they are waging a "war" against.

Proud Boy leader Enrique Tarrio, who attended Unite the Right, works closely with Roger Stone + directs Latinos for Trump in #Florida, is behind the petition to label 'antifa' a 'domestic terrorist group,' which has been picked up by Ted Cruz + Trump. itsgoingdown.org/proud-boy-lead…
On Wednesday, Enrique's White House petition to label “Antifa a domestic terrorist organization” expired, failing to meet even half the requirement of gaining 100,000 signatures. H/T @jgcOCANADA
@jgcOCANADA Tarrio took credit for creating the petition over the Proud Boys' Telegram account, famously used to harass and coordinate campaigns against journalists, activists, and those critical of the far-Right group. The petition is also signed, ET. H/T @AntiFashGordon
