Here is my rant of the day:
Why is @FeminismInIndia a sham ?

1) I was raised by a #feminist father. He went out of his way to make sure I get the best education possible even though we are refugees in our own country. Yes, I am a victim of #terrorism in #Kashmir.

2) I was never treated differently than my brother. You know why ? Because we are #Kashmirihindus and we treat everyone equally.
3) I presided over yagnas because I was the eldest child of the family. My gender had no bearing on that.
4) I was sent to a gurukul style school

2/n
5) I was sent to schools that taught me Shrimad bhagwat Geeta in addition to #kalaripayattu (ancient Indian martial art) for my protection.
Why ? Because my father din want me to fall prey to #islamicterrorists of #kashmir and get raped or murdered. He wanted me safe.

6) #Hindus are inherently #feminists. Which other major religion of the world has people worshipping Goddesses ? NONE.
7) If #hijab is a symbol of choice (LOL), so is me being rooted to my cultural and religious practices MY CHOICE.
8) No, I wasn't forced into kitchen

They supported the people who were against #Article370 being scrapped. The draconian law that made sure women were not treated equally.

Who is running this organization?

Brain dead idiots who don't know the meaning of #Feminism

Exhibit:
I am Durga (I take care of my family, my country and my #dharma)

I am Saraswati (my intellect matters and my opinion is taken into consideration)

I am Lakshmi (I am treated with respect and as a bread earner)

Don't teach me #feminism

#Hindus invented that shit

Don't come at me with "Sati" crap

#Hindu women were forced to take that step because they didn't want to end up in a harem of a chuslim invader

We protected our honor by choosing death over getting raped everyday

We were under chuslim and Christian rule for 1000s of yrs

During Islamic rule in #kashmir, #KashmiriHindu women used to deface themselves.

Our women used to chop of their noses, ears so no invader abducted and raped them.

Don't teach me #Feminism

In 90s #Kashmirimuslims threatened our women, raped and murdered them.

Where were u
So, here's the thing: #Hinduwomen have the right to protect themselves and their #dharma
If they CHOOSE to learn techniques to save themselves, so be it.

Why should @FeminismInIndia have a problem with a woman CHOOSING to protect herself ?

Is there something sinister going on?
