Today is International Mother Language Day. Last year, on this same day, Ravish Kumar anchored in Bhojpuri language.

India presently has 780 different languages and the country has lost nearly 250 languages in the last 50 years.

The linguistic and cultural diversity of India.
On this day in 1952, 100s were injured in Dhaka, protesting the right for the Bengali language to be one of the national languages along with Urdu in East Pakistan.

In their memory, 21st Feb is celebrated as International Mother Language Day.

Indian Liberals are a special breed. They don't know anything about WW2 but will give lessons on Fascism.

i) The communists are mentioned as enemies in both Mein Kampf & Bunch of Thoughts.

ii) Hitler wrote an entire chapter in Mein Kampf about his struggle against the Leftists.
"The problem of how the future of the German nation can be secured is the problem of how Marxism can be exterminated."

This quote is from Mein Kampf.

The Jews, Communists, Slavs and Roma Gypsies are mentioned as enemies.
If you think these Indian Liberals will save you against Fascism, lol then good luck.

Only thing they can peddle is LW = RW bullsh!t. Lack of historical knowledge, especially World War 2.

E Sreedharan today praised the Congress and Muslim League leaders in Kerala and called Pinarayi an Authoritarian. 🤣

A typical RW Malayali, blindly hates Communists & Lower Caste leaders. Ask any BJP supporter in Kerala and they would prefer a Congress government in Kerala.
Since becoming CM of Kerala in 2016, Pinarayi Vijayan has faced casteist remark 7 times. BJP & INC always mention him as the 'son of a lower caste Ezhava Toddy tapper' while criticising him.

"If Oommen Chandy becomes the chief minister, certainly I'll be very happy because he and other UDF leaders are gentlemen. I have great respect for Chandy, Chennithala and Kunhalikutty."

This tweet was deleted by NDTV.
Anyone can guess why this was deleted?

Because E Sreedharan was respected across Religious and Class line. Now he is praising the propaganda of BJP.
The Malayalam media on Love Jihad back in 2018.

The same Golwalkar also mocked Bhagat Singh in the Bunch of Thoughts by saying that his martyrdom was not supreme sacrifice and such persons shouldn't be held up as ideals in our society. He also admired the German Race purity theory.

Great Scholar Indeed.
"Germany has also shown how well nigh impossible it is for Races and cultures, having differences going to the root, to be assimilated into one united whole, a good lesson for us in Hindustan to learn and profit by."

These quotes are easily available. Just Google them.
“In this land Hindus have been the owners, Parsis and Jews the guests, and Muslims and Christians the dacoits.”

"Communists, Muslims & Christians are the external threats."

Such a great thinker.…

The liberal image of Vajpayee was first unmasked by CPI leader Indrajit Gupta in 1996, during the debate on a confidence motion in the Indian Parliament. The Communist leader was talking about Nellie.

But no one remembers Indrajit Gupta now. Short term memory breeds Fascism.
"The nation was made aware of it during the debate on a confidence motion that the 13-day Vajpayee government had moved in 1996. The CPI leader Indrajit Gupta quoted from the speech Vajpayee had made during the 1983 election campaign in Assam."…
If you can't remember real unsung heroes, then you will get fake dummy heroes.

Many on Twitter have that short term memory.

Today is the 75th anniversary of the Royal Indian Navy mutiny. A forgotten chapter in both Indian & Pakistani History books.

On February 18th 1946, over 20000 Indian sailors rose against the British Empire. Do remember those brave freedom fighters.

A #Thread on the Naval Mutiny
Balai Chand Dutt (BC Dutt) was the man who triggered the 1946 Royal Naval Mutiny. Today BC Dutt has been erased from Indian History.

A 23-year-old Dutt persuaded his comrades to join the revolt, commencing on February 18th 1946, with a hunger strike on the Ship 'HMIS Talwar'.
Within three days, the revolt spread to nearly 75 others ships and nearly 20,000 Indians sailors joined the Mutiny.

Karachi, Bombay, Kochi, Madras and Vizag were the focal points of the Mutiny. Indian Sailors began offered left-handed salutes to British superior officers.
