#KarlMarx on India

"England, it is true, in causing a social revolution in Hindostan, was actuated only by the vilest interests, and was stupid in her manner of enforcing them. But that is not the question. ++
++The question is, can mankind fulfil its destiny without a fundamental revolution in the social state of Asia? If not, whatever may have been the crimes of England she was the unconscious tool of history in bringing about that revolution."

Source:NY Daily Tribune,10/6/1853
"England has to fulfill a double mission in India: one destructive,the other regenerating – the annihilation of old Asiatic society, & the laying the material foundations of Western society in Asia… ++
When a great social revolution shall have mastered the results of the bourgeois epoch… and subjected them to the common control of the most advanced peoples, ....++
...then only will human progress cease to resemble that hideous, pagan idol, who would not drink the nectar but from the skulls of the slain."

You know nothing. Nazis were highly inspired by Soviet. Nazi methods of mass extermination were adopted from Soviet methods.

You know what Nazi Saal Schutz official Rudolf Höss (organizer of the infamous extermination camp, Auschwitz concentration camp) said? Read below
"The Reich Security Head Office issued to the commandants a full collection of reports concerning the Russian concentration camps.These described in great detail the conditions in, & organization of, the Russian camps, as supplied by former prisoners who had managed to escape...
...Great emphasis was placed on the fact that the Russians, by their massive employment of forced labor, had destroyed whole peoples."

1/n #Marx was anti-science. It is very clear from his writings. He was keen on forming a science theory in perspective of just another Abrahmic Religion.

In this thread I put across how Marxists were messing up with science starting from Prophet Marx.
2/n Marx was looking for incorporation of physical sciences with ‘the science of man,’ (Marxism). Nothing different than Abrahmics.

3/n 2 years after Darwin published "Origin of Species", Marx wrote to Lassalle (1861), explaining how it has explained "Class Struggle's" historically. It had exited him and he ended up writing "Das Kapital" after 6 years from then.

1/n Exactly 74 years back (10/10/1946) transpired the pogrom called the #NoakhaliHinduGenocide

In this thread I put forth the related details.

The truth freezes the tears of eyes.

The bad times of Hindus that had begun largely in Bengal from August 16, 1946, Calcutta.
2/n I must begin with basics around Direct Action Day.

The #DirectActionDay had set the Anti-Hindu Sentiments wave really big in Bengal.

the 18th day of #Ramadan was chosen for #DirectActionDay. It was chosen as the day because of significance of the Battle of Badr.
3/n July 1946, Jinnah held a press conference at his home in Bombay. He proclaimed that the Muslim league was "preparing to launch a struggle" and that they "have chalked out a plan".

That’s what you call mediocrity towards argument.

Swami Vivekananda was explaining that Quran is full of superstitions despite having “some” truths.

Those superstitions have killed many. Which means followers have chosen less truth (from some truth) & more superstition to kill
Are you going to accept that Quran has superstitions which followers (Muslims) have followed largely & not much of truth in it (As Swami Vivekananda meant)?

If not how it have led to killing of so many?

Are you ready to filter (erase)off those superstitions from Quran?
What rubbish? Do you even know what “Yoga” means? It’s not just doing something as Sanyasi.

Heard of “Karma Yoga”?

Vivekananda nowhere mentions that he is explaining it in regards to superstition of India. He had questions for followers of Md that y u follow superstition

1/n They praise Greek Philosophers all the time but they praised India day & night.

Few quotes

"In India I found a race of mortals living upon the Earth, but not adhering to it. Inhabiting cities, but not being fixed to them, possessing everything but possessed by nothing."
2/n "I saw the Indian Brahmans living on the earth and not on it, walled without walls, and with no possessions except the whole world."
3/n "[Some] disobey the earth and sharpen knives against the animals to gain clothing and food. The Indian Brahmans disapproved of this personally and taught the Naked Philosophers of Egypt to disapprove of it too. ++
