The piece does not refer or make a reference “Pappu” or “Kishore”. It only mentions IPAC briefly (1 sentence).

@RamaNewDelhi, why did you editorialized this piece through your comment to misrepresent and turn this into an advertorial for Kishore?

Explain, apologize and delete.
I don’t know if these are Delhi folks being useful idiots or political brokers. Stalin, like everyone, is an elected public official; by all means, hold him and everyone else accountable.
But this kind of fawning to center Kishore through comments is just downright dishonest.
Calling Kishore the man of the moment when this victory resulted from important ground-level organizing is erasing local histories of dissent, building political base, and work of thousands of cadres.
You are either ignorant, arrogant, or just self-serving. Or all of the above.

There Is No Case. Release the Bhima Koregaon 16 and Compensate Them… by @meenakandasamy and @jigneshmevani80
“This leads us to the inevitable question, why has the Modi government were targeted and incarcerated the Bhima Koregaon 16?
None of them committed crimes of any sort. None of them indulged in any violence.”
They remain in jail on the basis of claims made by the police based on electronic evidence. Now, when the two Arsenal reports make it abundantly clear that the electronic evidence was itself planted, all claims of conspiracy fall.

If anything the book& the poem you listed - details the invasion and conquest of the Madurai Sultanate by the Vijayanagara empire and the temple chronicles also speak of board time period of various invasions. To weaponize the “sultanate” now is just dog whistle.
History is complicated, and messy.

To retell history through communalized goes to the heart of politics seeking to manipulate, manufacture and mobilise public support to consolidate the power of the majority.
Revisionist history strategically demands for revenge as a form of justice to right historical wrongs committed under non-Hindu rulers.

A friend just sent the petition being circulated by Hindu students against Prof @AudreyTruschke. Am not sharing that. What insufferable, ill-informed toxic fragility is this? If scholarship threaten your safety, and your religion. Perhaps time to rethink what those values are.
I want to take this moment to share Prof @KanitkarT ‘s talk

It’s a good indication of where we are as a society and a community. We have lost any capacity for robust interrogation or rational thought.
Also adding a thread by @quizzicalguy where you debunks the claim of Hindu genocide the students have listed as proof of “bigotry” against them!
