Received on Whatsapp. A Hindu woman in Rauzan,Chittagong,Bangladesh,howling over her house,set on fire by Jamatis,still burning. Not at all an atypical scene.
What fate awaits the Hindus in West Bengal?
Day before yesterday I received a notice from <twitter legal> on email to the effect that some government agency has complained that this tweet “violates the laws of India”. No prizes for guessing who could have made such a complaint,and why.
Twitter Legal seem to have merely
followed their stated policy. In fact they had empathized with me and said that this may be an unsettling experience.
I have taken competent legal advice and given a pointed reply to them. I also wish to assure twitter Legal that I am not the least bit unsettled. The reply
is really quite simple and I want to bring it to the notice of twipple and my followers for their information:
First I flatly deny the allegation.
Secondly,”the Laws of India” are not something contained in a single sheet of paper. They are,in fact,an ocean. Unless the
complainant tells me exactly which section of which law I have violated,it is impossible to answer the complaint.
That said,JUST LOOK AT THE MEANNESS! What I did was to try to show to the world a horrible case of Human Rights violation and its possible implications in
West Bengal. Obviously this has hurt someone’s scheme of vote bank politics,and this is how low they are stooping,trying to resist it!

Pandit Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar’s birthday today. I think his role as a reformer of Hindu society was greater than that as an educator. By legitimizing Hindu widow remarriage based on ancient Hindu scriptures he had taken Hindu society quite a few paces ahead. The mark of a
dynamic religion is its capacity to evolve with time and not remain tied in the past. It is in these reforms that the greatness of Hindutva lies.

It began with Raja Ram Mohun Roy who outlawed Sutee or widow-burning. Then came Ram Narayan Tarkaratna who ridiculed the practice of
‘Kulin’ marrying several wives, sometimes up to 80 or 90. Vidyasagar’s greatness lay in his wrapping up all these and mounting a concerted attack on traditionalists. The practice of widows remarrying is still not in vogue to that extent, though Sir Asutosh Mookerjee got

Today is a sacred day for me in not one but four ways.
First, today is Mahalaya. End of Pitru-paksha,start of Devi-Paksha.
Secondly,today is Vishwakarma Puja,the God of artisans and craftsmen. The day is significant in another way. It is the only Hindu festival which
(subject to rare exceptions) falls on the same day in the Gregorian calendar,that is on 17th September.
Thirdly it is the Janma-tithi puja of Swami Akhandanandaji,a direct disciple of Thakur Ramakrishna and the 3rd President of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission. But for us
Swayamsevaks of the RSS,Akhandanandaji is the Guru of our Guru,PP Guruji Golwalkar. Guruji,after resigning his position as Professor of Zoology in Varanasi Hindu University came and joined the Ramakrishna Math and Mission as a Brahmachari and was posted under Akhandanandaji at

Two more accused in the Khagragarh (a locality of Bardhaman town of West Bengal) blast case,Qadar Kazi and Mohammed Zaidul Haq have been sentenced to 7 years of imprisonment. The blast had taken place on 2 October 2014.
Earlier four other terrorists,Md Yunus,Matiur Rahman,
Zahirul Sheikh and Ziaul Haq (all belonging to the terror outfit Jamat’ul Mujahideen Bangladesh or JMB) had been similarly sentenced. Now only the mastermind Qausar is left.
But there is an interesting sidelight to this. Immediately after this incident the local police
gathered most of the explosive material from the blast site took it to a deserted spot on the Damodar River and set fire to it. The intent could only have been to cause disappearance of evidence. Shortly after this the investigation was handed over to the

Will someone who knows about Kerala please check out the correctness of the following news input?

Did you know that in Kerala there are a total of 21,683 Madrassas...?

Since Kerala has 14 districts that means 1,549 Madrassas per district.

There are 70 panchayats per district
so that makes it 22 Madrassas per panchayat.

That means one Madrassa per kilometre in Kerala..

2,04,683 religious teachers work in these 21,683 Madrassas all together... that means 9 religious teachers per Madrassa.

Their current salary is Rs. 6,000/- per month.
Kerala’s Minority Affairs minister K T Jaleel is also Minister of Higher Education. He was a member of the terror organisation SIMI that was banned by the Govt of India some time ago. He then joined the CPM and now pretends to be a secular Commie.

He has now demanded that
