पित्रा भर्त्रा सुतैर्वापि नेच्छेद्विरहं आत्मनः ।

पण्डित चन्द्रमणि विद्यालंकार :
कन्या या स्त्री को चाहिए कि वह पिता, पति व पुत्रों से पृथक् रहने की इच्छा न करे। क्योंकि इन से पृथक् रहने से स्त्री पितृकुल व

पतिकुल, दोनों कुलों को कलङ्कित कर सकती है।

पण्डित राजवीर शास्त्री जी :
कोई भी स्त्री पिता, पति अथवा पुत्रों से अपना बिछोह - अलग रहने की इच्छा न करे क्यों कि इनसे अलग रहने से यह आशंका रहती है कि कभी कोई ऐसी बात न हो जाये जिससे दोनों - पिता तथा पति के कुलों की निन्दा या
बदनामी हो जाये । अभिप्राय यह है कि स्त्री को सर्वदा पुरूष की सहायता अपेक्षित रखनी चाहिए, उसके बिना उसकी असुरक्षा की आशंका बनी रहती है ।

"Lotus Feet" in China
According to ancient Chinese tradition, a bride must have a tiny foot. Girls with standard-sized feet are often ridiculed and not taken as brides.


#Women #China #Beauty Image
1. For this reason from the age of 4-5 girls' feet are tightly bandaged so that the feet simply do not grow, and for the next 10 years the future wives endure unbearable pain in the name of beauty.

2. The procedure deforms the foot, and by the age of 18 it does not grow longer than 10 centimeters. The Chinese provinces have an entire shoe industry for the occasion.

Last week, I promised to share a🧵dismantling the Navigating Differences (ND) queerphobic statement recently released by a group of Muslim leaders. I will draw from the Quran & hadiths to substantiate my arguments while offering some resources.
#Islam #LGBT #Pride #Women
First, this statement dehumanizes queer people just by mentioning "LGBT-centric values", "practices" & "proponents". It's like condemning "female proponents". The existence of our queer kin, & our obligation to love & respect them are not up for debate (2/).
The first surah/chapter of the Quran, Al-Fatiha (The Opening), also refers to the opening of the heart/mind. It is a du'a/supplication that begins by emphasizing Allah's mercy/compassion, gratitude & asks for Their guidance. We read it at the start of every prayer (3/).

Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

#Ukraine #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk? Falsehood” Image
‘It was not #Ukraine that #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk

Sometimes anti-#Ukrainian #propaganda uses falsehoods – e.g. #fabricated documents or photos, through which it gives a completely new, #untrue context – or simply untruth.
This is the case here. In the post we read that the current Ukrainian authorities "#murdered the #people of #Donbass and #Luhansk due to their #ethnic origin."

The people of #Karnataka have decided to give the mandate to #Congress party to Govern the state for the next 5 years.

Higher voter turnout will advantage the party even further.

#Women #Youth #Lingayats and socially marginalized classes are favoring Congress. Image
The fight in Bagalkot District is largely Congress versus BJP in the 7 constituencies - Mudhol (SC), Terdal, Jamkhandi, Bilgi, Badami, Bagalkot and Hungund.

The #Congress wave is strong here. The projection of 5 seats for Congress out of 7 is a new high Image
Five of the constituencies in the district are dominated by Marathas, while Lingayats form a majority in most of the 13 remaining constituencies.

The tectonic shift of the Lingayat voter base from BJP to #Congress is responsible for that Party to gain from a region. Image

Your journey towards alien faith begins with making you disrespect your own faith. That is how #Thekeralastory begins. There are some favourite tropes which are used. I don’t care what your individual stand it, in larger cause, one must accept and work on it.
First one is - Caste. #Caste is a Portuguese concept. Hinduism has Varna. All Varna’s are said to have emerged from Brahma- the Divine. In Hinduism, intellectuals since eternity understood the divisive impact of Caste. So in earliest times, Manu marries daughter to Brahmin.
In Ramayan, Kshatriya Shriram has Nishadraj as his school mate and friend. In Mahabharat, the story is narrated by Sootputra. In Ajgar Kand of Van Parva, Dharmaraj Yudhishthir tells the Sarp, it is our action which decides your caste. #Casteism #Hinduism

1. Why did Gulf kingdoms embrace Iran? When the #GulfArab states saw what happened in Iran over one #Kurdish woman who stood up to became the #Mideast version of Rosa Parks, they all panicked. Remember, the US lists as terrorists a group whose ideology seeks #genderequality.
2. That continued listing over an ideology we support is something @POTUS @VP and @SecBlinken need to explain. But in the interim, we are seeing the #Arab word suddenly embracing #Assad, a blood soaked chemical weapon-using, sociopathic dictator. Why?
3. Because he's the one they have tapped to eliminate the #Syrian #Kurds. And all the #misogynists cheer him as their standard bearer. And once the #SDF is gone and the #women once again relegated to second-class rights, they can get back to business

Although your baby’s skin looks very much like your own, it is way different from yours. It is much softer, smoother, fresher – you get the point. Apart from that, there also that scintillating fresh-baby smells that we love so much! Now, there are many differences between babies
’ skin and adults’ skin, but five take the lead:  1. Babies’ skin is much thinner than adults’. The thinness of the skin makes it more permeable. Babies’ skin doesn’t have as much fiber as does adults’ skin, this makes it easy for substances to permeate it. Also, babies’ skin’s

In an unverified letter attributed to the Craftsmen& Shopkeepers Chamber of #Parwan, the #women's hair salons in the province are directed to consider some Islamic regulations during their work.
The letter is from CSC but some of its contents seem to be from the Vice& Virtue Dep.
"1. Hairdressers should do their job according to the principles of Islam.
2. They should #pray inside the shop after closing the door of the shop during prayer times.
3. Inside the salons, ethical& Islamic issues including observing #Hijab, should be considered.
4. Customers ...
...should make ablution before applying make-up.
5. As far as possible, do not use cosmetics that make ablution invalid.
6. It is strictly forbidden to sell the cut hair of customers.
9. Inside the salons, there should be a suitable place for customers to make ablution.
