Kazi Masum Akhtar was d Headmaster of Talpukur High Madrasa in Metiabruz , Kolkata Port. In March 2015, he had his skull cracked open by d local Maulanas & their henchmen for making d students sing d National Anthem on Republic Day which d clerics regarded as un-Islamic👇 Image
A fatwa was also issued against his entry in Metiabruz. His complaints to d Education Dept of WB, d Minorities Commission & Kolkata Police went unheard as no one wanted to displease local clerics who were locally influential.He repeatedly put his life on the line to save poor👇
minor M girls from marriages as 2nd & 3rd wives to men twice their age or more. He pleaded wd their parents to send them to school instead. He valiantly defied d fatwa to grow a beard & wear salwar pyjamas to d madrasa. He was transferred to maintain communal harmony in d area👇 Image
For his indomitable courage in the face of fanaticism, he was awarded the #PadmaAwards yesterday. Heroes live in our midst and fight battles that we know nothing about.

Difference between Modi & Yogi .

Ram accepted every rule right or wrong, Krishna broke wrong rules. In the kingdom of Rama, a modest person could gossip about the queen under the rule of freedom of expression, but Shishupala could not abuse more than a hundred times .👇
Look at Modi.He also talks about giving up. Give up old notes, give up Black money, give up gas subsidy. All his decisions are in accordance with d state-religion, constitution, whether that rule of d constitution is right or wrong. Modi always tries to strike a balance 👇
He tries to make animals human. In the name of FOE anyone can abuse him 24 hrs a day. Your abuses give him strength. In d name of the right to protest U can sit under his nose for months by blocking d road. He is the elder son of the country, will behave according to the rules👇

Hindutva & Hinduism.

In the word Hindutva, d term Tattva refers to principles. There are 24 such principles or tattva of d world of duality (atma-tattva), of which the pancha bhutas are also a part. So when one condemns Hindutva, terming it as an aggressive form of Hinduism 👇
dt person really has no knowledge of what he speaking about. Hindutva simply means d religious & philosophical principles followed by d Hindus. Hinduism is just d English counterpart of d term Hindutva.
d term Hindutva has bn used many times by many scholars of 19th century 👇
So when some academicians or hold a conference claiming to dismantle global Hindutva, it’s either dt they don’t know the meaning of the term or are playing with it and in reality trying to attack the very basic foundations of Hinduism.
Don't Worry what #RahulGandhi said !

One of d biggest mysteries for most political analysts around the world, is that of Gujarat's quick rise under Modi in such a short span during the early 2000s, which led to d coining of the phrase "Gujarat Model". It is a mystery to those analysts bcs they have no idea of 👇
of the immense efforts behind the scenes, "invested" by Modi in the deeper rural pockets for almost 2 decades!!
The story goes back to the late 1970s, when RSS was impressed with the young Modi's calibre & the methodologies with which he had evaded threats during emergency,👇
and had literally become part of the organization's backbone. Hence, RSS started giving him much higher responsibilities, especially related to chronicling the true narratives of emergency and it's impact on the masses.👇
