Christians and the West should take a thousand year moratorium on “saving” anyone. Whether via “Jesus” or “human rights.” Both are forms of imperialism.
Till the 20th century the West was putting people in human zoos.

They were hunting down aboriginal/tribal people after classifying them as non-human.

In the "Buddhist" temples in Thailand, you can find Ganesha. Even Shiva-Parvati.

This has been part of a continuum of Hindu culture before the construction of "Buddhism" as a "revolt" against "Hinduism" by colonial scholarship. (and their academic progeny in India).
Of course as @Koenraad_Elst points out, Buddha was every inch a Hindu claiming descent from Rama.

In the colonial construction, “Hinduism” became “caste system” and everything else became an imaginary revolt against this “caste system.” 🤣…
If you go to Thailand you’ll find “Buddhist” Brahmins presiding over the rituals and ceremonies.

India’s colonial neo-Buddhism is a farce, mainly based on hate and rejection.

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.

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.

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.
