In the following threads I'll try to discuss the links between Dravidian-Missionary Nexus, expose the links between the so called NGOs and #BreakingIndia Brigade, how they plan to derail all developmental projects mostly in the State of #TamilNadu
While in reality most of know that there's much more to the #Tuticorin protests, much of it was not highlighted by the Left leaning Media. The Church seems to have led the media by the nose in helping build a Congress-Communist narrative that dragged the Namo Govt into this
The coverage by the national media of the protests in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, against Vedanta’s copper smelting plant has been injudicious, based on hearsay and without application of mind. A narrative has been parroted without critical Examination. It's true that few were shot

This is especially for all the tweeple dissing the #DilliChalo farmers' rally saying they're just communists carrying flags. The main organiser is the All India Kisan Sabha, with communist history, but also 200+ groups. If ur here attending, u won't be able to diss their concerns
In rural India, farmers' unions & co-ops are a norm. It's an activity u might think is left leaning,but collective bargaining is the only way to access markets, push fr good prices, regulate seeds & fertilizers, even organise life. It's as rooted as harvest festivals #dillichalo
It might be ignorant to dismiss organised farmers and labourers just because they are unionised and aware. #DilliChalo

While *most* South Asian Muslims use #Persian terms for religious concepts, Muslims in #TamilNadu & #Kerala (who trace their roots to Arab trading communities) have distinct traditions also reflected in their terminology, which freely draws from #Tamil/#Malayalam & #Sanskrit.
Instead of rozā, the #Persian term for Islamic fasting (itself a translation of #Arabic ṣawm) used in #Urdu, #Bengali, #Gujarati etc, #Tamil & #Malayalam speaking Muslims use nōmpu, lit. ceremonial fasting. The word is from a proto #Dravidian root meaning to do penance. #Ramadan
Sanskrit is used too. #Malayalam speaking Muslims commonly refer to #Ramzan as puṇya māsam, #Sanskrit for month of good merit. Nimskāram, the Malayalam counterpart of the #Persian namāz (Islamic prayer), is from #Sanskrit namaskāra (lit. prostratration, here, to a god). #Ramadan
