Twitter has no problems trending hate speech. Eh @twittersupport? As long as it is against their favorite targets.

Imagine if someone were trending “Islam is poison” or “Jews are poison.” They'd see it as bigotry.

But some bigotry is platformed. Pure hate from Twitter. @jack
Brahmanvaad is a made-up term. It is a product of colonialism. No one used it before that. For missionaries Brahmins were rivals and thus targets of hate. That is its origin.

Children in India are being inculcated into this hate via the education system and by propaganda. This is breaking up the society. This is its aim.

Some of the earliest references to the term “Brahamanism” as “superstition.”

“worship of evil spirits by bloody Brahmins.”

From encyclopedia entry. 😏

This is the origin of Brahmin hate-bots.

It’s not about Brahmins. It’s Christian #WhiteSupremacy about brown heathens.
Brahmanism as superstition.

“Social science” is Christian theology pretending to be “scholarship.”
Western scholars try to find "religion" in India. They find none, but the Bible tells them that "God" gave religion to all peoples. So they force fit Indian traditions into religion. It doesn't work. So they declare the whole thing "incoherent" rather than themselves ignorant.
You cannot understand the bogus nature of today's "scholarship" tell you understand its origins in a very ignorant and prejudiced European mind. This mind thought the earth was < 6000 years old, because the Bible said so. It had no sophistication to understand Indian chronology.
This is the "Chronology" of the earth from an Encyclopedia from 1875. This was "gospel truth" for Europeans, but particularly for Christian missionaries like Max Mueller who were writing Indian history.

This is the *basis* of Indian history taught in academia today.
The idea that Hindu civilization was more ancient than "Moses" was blasphemy, more ancient than Adam an impossibility. So, the wily Brahmins must be making up these fabulous myths of an old earth millions of years old. And everything they must have copied.
Saying "Adam" it itself bogus. There is no Adam. It's part of the myth-making.

"Brahamanism" is colonial and missionary fiction.

Brahmins were "wily, clever with black magic" to get everyone to be subservient to them. This dumb "history" survives in academia in the 21st century because it serves the interest of attacking Hindus.

Still trending. Disgusting. Someone needs to sue.
Even in the US, well-funded groups are now targeting Hindus over “caste.” One cannot run. We have to stand and fight and expose false narratives.
Hindu defeat and the brutalities they endured made them try avoid attention, avoid conflict. Do Puja at home; do bhajan for self-calming.

No more. We cannot keep running. If you don't want your children to end up like the Yezidi, stand ground and fight.

We can have an entire thread on how one’s “lived experience” is completely different from what this so-called “caste system” is supposed to be. Perhaps people can share.

In Israel it is illegal to name your child Hitler. Why would you name a child after a brutal mass murderer of your people?

In India, some celebrities named their child after mass-murderer Taimur.

It is disgusting this ignoramus doesn't have the sensitivity to call it out.
Taimur is an Islamic tyrant you made a mountain of Hindu skulls—common people, not warriors. His name still evokes terror in collective memory as Taimurlang. Saif is a "history buff" who specifically chose the name for the historical Taimur, per Kareena.…
Saif's act reflects Islamic triumphalism, much like ISIS converted young Yezidi boys and used them to attack their own community. This fanaticism births Taimur from Saif's "conquest" of the native.

The list of great books grows bigger! @GarudaPrakashan

Which ones do you have? Which do you want?
Yes, this is a shelf of brand new books I asked my team to put in my office.

Maybe I'll have to add to my list. To write. :)

The Nazis had an entire Muslim division.

Himmler was “personally fascinated by the Islamic faith and believed that Islam created fearless soldiers. “

So was Hitler. His “Yellow badges” to target minorities were inspired by Islamic Caliphs.…
German officials saw close parallels between Nazism (National Socialism) and Islam.

Eberhard von Stohrer, German diplomat, wrote about respect for Hitler in the Islamic world due to the targeting of Jews.

Source: ISLAM AND NAZI GERMANY’S WAR, David Motadel, Harvard Univ Press.
Hitler welcomed Amin al- Husayni, mufti of Jerusalem. and spoke of support for Palestine, just like in the Left-Islamist alliance today.

"Hitler said his “uncompromising fight against the Jews,” also included the Jews of the Arab lands."

Imagine a world:

Where our shilpkaras would teach art, not those who passed a few exams.

Our traditional architects would teach in architecture schools.

Where children would learn skills in apprenticeship, and not be jobless after 15 years of education, having learnt nothing.
Can someone described the German apprenticeship model in detail. I've heard about it in passing.

Indian intellectuals, like clockwork, kept studying “caste discrimination”, just like their colonial masters had taught them to.

But the real axis of discrimination today in India is English class and those who go to dysfunctional government schools vs expensive private schools.

Nice thread by @BharadwajSpeaks. There is a long tradition of record-keeping by the Brahmins at Haridwar etc. This is a rich source of historical record which has not really been tapped.

It will be interesting to find the purohit of the "Sikh" Sodhis and when the records stop.
Exactly, this is what I meant. I suspect that it is only after Macaullife-Sikhi made by the British that they stopped going to Haridwar. Before that all records must be present of their purohits.

Yes, I went and got my ancestral records on my father's death. As a "modern English-educated" Indian I had no idea all this even existed.

Hindus are supposed to have no sense of history. Yet we've preserved meticulous ancestral records for generations.

Interesting perspective from a long-term RSS Swayamsevak on the deracination of BJP/RSS.

What is the response of others in the Sangh to this? Does aversion to rituals and grihasth ashram deracinate?…
The language is a bit harsh and I’m not endorsing the viewpoint.

But it is true that RSS is largely a reformist and not a traditional org, unlike what its critics allege.

So it is worth a samvad about this issue.
