The #ChineseShip detained by India and the international duplicity.
The Department of Revenue Intelligence and #Kandla Customs detained a Chinese ship on February 3 for carrying a falsely declared “dual use” industrial autoclave as an industrial dryer, which can be used in the manufacture of ballistic missiles.
Now the scientists from the #DRDO are examining the suspected cargo of the Chinese ship #DaiCuiYun, bound for the Port of Karachi to ascertain whether the 2005 Indian law against #WMD and the international laws on the same can be invoked against both the consignee & consignor.

The Kande Viharaya temple is a Sri Lankan Buddhist shrine with its origins in the 18th century

It's located on a hill top hence its name in Sinhalese

I went there on a blazing late Dec afternoon in a Bajaj Auto (from India, as the driver quickly pointed out)

#SriLanka
The sun was blazing, but the washed stones were cool

Devotees carried offerings, wandered about peaceably, & the atmosphere was almost meditatively silent, in stark contrast to the hustle-bustle of an Indian temple

#SriLanka
The majestic, beatific Buddha statue is 48m tall, one of the largest in the world, and was completed in 2007

At the base of the lotus on which He sat, there were offerings from devotees old and new

#SriLanka

#Srilanka #Coronavirus update (2).
So, after going through few hundred messages sent to us, we (@TeamWatchDog) aggregated the current set of rumors down to a few common stories and called up the Sri Lankan Ministry of Health Epidemiology Unit. Here's a batch of updates
- [0] Firstly, a reminder: the number of confirmed cases in Sri Lanka is still only 1, confirms Dr. Sudath Samaraweera, Chief Epidemiologist, Ministry of Health. Anyone claiming higher is making up bullshit.

Source: Ministry of Health Epidemiology Unit
- [1] Travel itinerary of the Chinese woman who was infected: Dr. Sudath Samaraweera, Chief Epidemiologist, Ministry of Health, notes that it's unethical to spread such alleged travel information on social media, and the authorities are doing the relevant follow-ups.

The #ClimateCrisis, buried in aggregate economic indicators:

A spike in inflation in #India "caused by food prices...a sharp rise in the price of vegetables... pulses... attributed to supply shocks caused largely by extreme weather events"

#foodsecurity
bit.ly/38iVDaJ
Food prices nearly double in Kenya

"economist Ken Gichinga attributes the rise to erratic weather conditions that hit various parts of the country late 2019"

Where is the media?

The doom is here. We don't need prophets.

☝️...Anyone see a pattern?

In Sri Lanka:

"It is well-known that vegetable prices wrere going up rapidly in the last few months...The main reason for this is the climate anomalies...some crops were completely destroyed"

#Thread #FactCheck
.@chennaipolice_, among the best police force in #India, has had some pretty ordinary and Laughable leadership. Unfortunately, this ends up affecting the force in all spheres of functioning. For instance, the insinuation that @gayatrikl is a #Pakistani agent
The Commissioner pointed to @gayatrikl's @Facebook home page, and declared that he would investigate the #Pakistan connection.
Yes, Mr. Commissioner, #ISI operatives have been instructed via a @ImranKhanPTI's circular that they should declare that they work for Pak firms on FB
If indeed it's true, @chennaipolice_ should be hauled up for dereliction of duty because, until @gayatrikl came out to draw a #KolamProtestAgainstCAA, the police didn't know her Pak connection!!! So, what are you doing in your social media monitoring cell?

A short #Thread to dispel doubts on #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019
Q) Does the Bill disallow citizenship for #Muslim migrants ?
A) NO , The bill merely mandates any #Muslim migrant to spend 11 yrs resident in #India before applying for citizenship.
Q) Does #CitizenAmendmentBill discriminate against #Muslims who are citizens of #India or remove any privilege of citizenship they hold?
A) No, the #CABBill makes no comment on the citizenship of existing #Muslim citizens.
Q) Why does the bill disallow #Muslim migrants from #Pakistan #Afghanistan & #Bangladesh from it's ambit.
A) The Bill is meant to provide a safety valve for minorities in adjoining nations who do not wish to live under a #Islamic regime. #Muslims are a majority in these nations.

If the govt really wants to help persecuted minorities of neighbouring countries, then why have 62,000 Tamil refugees from #SriLanka, who are refugee camps in TN, been left out of the #CitizenshipAmendmentBill? They are mostly Hindus and Christians.
What about the 100,000 Tibetans, also living in India? Most of them are Buddhists.

1/ It’s getting very difficult to believe that Gota legitimately renounced his US citizenship. Here’s where it stands:

1. Credibility of renunciation documents has been destroyed as:

A) The renunciation certificate that was originally circulated...

#lka #SriLanka #PresPollSL
2/...was proven to be a forgery:

factcheck.afp.com/citizenship-re…

B)Gota’s lawyer, Ali Sabry, claimed renunciation documents were submitted to the @ECSriLanka only to have 2 members of the EC publicly deny it: newsfirst.lk/2019/11/12/we-…

#lka #SriLanka #PresPollSL #PressPollSL
3/

C) Falsified nomination affidavit with clause relating to citizenship inserted:

D)Missing and falsified dual citizenship
documents:

sundayobserver.lk/2019/08/11/new…

E) @USEmbSL would have given him a letter...

1/ Those who are questioning the authenticity of Gota's publically available US citizenship renunciation documentation without support from official sources/experts are only compromising their own credibility & making it harder to raise legitimate...

#lka #SriLanka #PresPollSL
2/...concerns. For example, arguments such as the cancel vs. cancelled stamp, glasses in the passport photo & the inconsistency in font- are invalid. Official sources confirm that documentation/stamps differ in some aspects & the glasses rule went into effect in 2016.
3/ For example, here are 3 other renunciation certificates: there is variance between the seals on the top left, the stamps on the top right, and the font used to fill out the form.

On the other hand, Gota et al. haven't yet taken the steps...
