Jain's pay attention 💥
Ministry of culture has set up an Expert committee for the Holistic study of origin & evolution of Indian culture since 12,000 years. Not a single JAIN representative in the list. Neither Buddhist.
Nor can you see the words Prakrit, Pali, Brahmi anywhere.
What is happening?
Are we heading towards learning FALSE HISTORY again? See all the Name's and judge for yourself the outcome.
Will any scholar from this list present the Jain side of history? That too without any bias?
This is a call out to representatives of all the JAIN ORGANIZATIONS and influential people, activists to write to the Union Minister of State for Culture & Tourism - Shri @prahladspatel and to our PM - Shri @narendramodi questioning them about this major lapse.
Why is there no one to represent the Jain religion that is antique & has contributed hugely to the rich culture and heritage of our country
why such bias behaviour with jains.
@ASIGoI have never ever till now accepted the fact that they don't give a damn about our age old Temple
In the name heritage site they let our idol's n temple get vandalised by the people who consider it as a picnic spot.
To my surprise there are many @ASIGoI members in the list who will be doing study.
Now one can expect what kind of treatment we are going to get
We want minimum 2 jain representative in the committee so that they can provide the most precise information of Jainism.

They are Jains.
Yes the forgotten and neglected jains of our society.
Sarak 🙌
This video is from orrisa .
Where our jain brothers are teaching them about jainism and reintroducing them with religious beliefs.
They don't eat nonveg or kand mool ,if u ask them why
Thread Cont.
Why they don't eat .
They say they don't know why but their ancestors also never ate it so even they don't.
Many sarak jains don't even use words like kaatna (cut) maarna etc.
These are the strong religious sentiments which r deeply coded into them
which is making them follow it
Their gotra is from the name of tirthankars,
parshwnath , dharmnath n etc.
In a way they from the same lineage of the tirthankars.
But with time they are all left behind totally neglected by Jain samaj..

Family of 3 earning mere 700₹ a day by doing labour jobs n living in poverty

Goverment didn't bothered much about the (Rajubai) Widow of shaheed mohan Singh,
Youngsters of Village saw the struggle and decided to contribute her by raising funds And raised 11 lakh₹
And renovated the old house into brand new one (below pic)👇
@MajorPoonia @True_Shrotriya ImageImage
Most interesting part is they all tied rakhi on rakshabandhan from the Widow of Shaheed MS. And gifted the house to her by
laying their hands on ground and askng her to step on hands and do the grah pravesh of her newly made home.
