If you are a Hindu, then, this story is for you. After reading this thread, you will feel proud to be born in India & sympathise with those who couldn’t return back during Partition. (Long Thread) @Aabhas24 @ARanganathan72
@Aabhas24 @ARanganathan72 This is the story of Jogendra Nath Mandal. He was one of the Founding Fathers of Pakistan. Wait, what? Yes. He was a Bengali, and a Hindu ( Dalit ). He was subjected to vehement caste discrimination as he belonged to the untouchable “Namasudra Community.” #BatlaHouse

BR Ambedkar, the father of Indian Constitution, would not have made it to the Constituent Assembly had it not been for Mandal. The @INCIndia was opposed to getting Ambedkar elected. #MissionMangal @arifmohdkha
@Aabhas24 @ARanganathan72 @INCIndia @arifmohdkha @madhukishwar Tweet (4/19):

Mandal held the “myth” that Dalits will be treated better in the newly created State of Pakistan, a country carved out of India on the basis of religion (Two -Nation Theory).

Mandal was eventually made the first Law Minister of Pakistan. @BarristerBashan states that Jinnah convinced Mandal to come to Pakistan as he was aware that the rich Hindus may migrate to India, thereby hurting the Pakistani economy! #ModiLiesAtRedFort

It was due to Mandal’s misadventure that Sylhet, a district of Assam and the land of my ancestors, went to East Pakistan. He convinced the Dalits to vote in favour of Pakistan. @RealHistoryPic @TIinExile

Thanks to Mandal! Now, Muslims in Sylhet called Hindus “Malon/Malu” (a derogatory term for Dalits.) Snippets of my disturbing conversation with a Bangladeshi Hindu girl on Instagram! (She was once told that Allah created your God). @nailainayat #ModiLiesAtRedFort

Mandal, a champion of Dalit rights, supported the Objective Resolutions that turned Pakistan into an Islamic Republic. He believed Dalits will be treated better in an Islamic nation rather than the Republic of India. @arifaajakia

In just 3 years, Mandal submitted his 28-page resignation letter to Pakistani PM Liaquat Ali Khan. It is a must-read for the Millenials who complain about intolerance in India. @ARanganathan72 #IndependenceDayIndia

Dacca Riots - 1950: (Resignation Letter of Jogendra Nath Mandal) 10,000 Hindus killed. @swati_gs

Maulana Akram Khan’s editorial comments made Mandal realise the sinister plans of the Muslim League.

Mandal returned back to India, after realising his grave mistake. For the remainder of his life, he was rebuked as "Jogendra Ali Mollah". His one decision changed the lives of many people (in a wrong way). #ModiLiesAtRedFort

The unfortunate story of - forced conversions to Islam, rape as a tool for subjugation, looting properties of Hindus, desecration of Hindu idols continue to this date in Pakistan and Bangladesh. @swati_gs @SwarajyaMag @OpIndia_com

Kabhi toh itmenaan se baith kar socho; Ki iss mulk mein agar itni hi Ganga-Yamuni Tehzeeb thi; Toh iss mulk ka batwara mazhab ki Binah par kaise hua? Vo konsi jamooriyat pasandida awam thi jo apne hi madre watan ko chor kar chali gayi.

I am a lone wolf running this channel out of my love for India’s political history. Do support me so that the stories I cover don’t get buried in the pool of tweets. Regards.

S. ~ First, feel blessed to be born in India & not be a subject of religious persecution. Second, why is the story of Mandal missing from textbooks? Well, how would have caste and identity politics played out if a Dalit was shown to be disloyal to India? #IndependenceDayIndia
