After distrubances in Leicester between Muslim citizens and right wing Hindutva supporting Hindu men shouting #JaiShreeRamn British Police will now have to learn about the dangers of Hindutva fanaticism. It is an import from India where it seeks to spread Hindu supremacist ideas
That Hindutva right wing majoritarian ideology is rearing its ugly head in the multicultural, relatively peaceful communities in Britain is a worry. @ukhomeoffice, @WMPolice @metpoliceuk need to understand what's happening in India. There it has Govt and police support
There has been a move for sometime to create an impression that there is in Britain and among the British establishment an element of Hinduphobia. In this the Hindu Right wing seeks parity with antisemitism and Islamophobia.
It is a well known development in America where #RSS sponsored affiliates have invited divisive rabid speakers from India at major events. @Hindus4HR there has joined forces with others like @IAMCouncil to combat it.
For a good primer on Hindutva in academia and elsewher see this by @AudreyTruschke a Rutgers academic who has been at the receiving end of Hindutva online hate
This by the Indian academic Apoorvanand is topical. Intolerance, ostracism and downright hostilty towards other faiths and minorities, but esp targeting Muslims, has been the staple of the Right wing BJP and RSS in India.
Leicester Police have been very active in dealing with this threat to community peace and well-being. They pout out this statement in the early hours of Sunday 18th Sep
Police officers have held meetings with community leaders. They call "or dialogue and calm ...," and, "will NOT tolerate violence or disorder in our city."
They have also called on people "to only share information on social media you know to be true." Misinformation and disinformation and espo rumours are dangerous.

No comment on why a large-ish group of people took out an "unplanned march" (@leicspolice terminology) chanting #VandeMataram and #JaiShriRam. Those are not protest chants; what were this lot protesting against? I

Look at this way,
Adani is the Worlds second richest man. At 155 Bn USD his networth = 4.9% of India's GDP of 3.2 Trillion USD

Musk (272 Bn), Bezos (152 Bn), Gates(106 Bn), and Zuckerberg (54 Bn) COMBINED have a networth of 584 billion USD = 2.78% of US GDP of 21 Trn USD
To reach 5% of US GDP you will have to combine to that lot, the networth of Buffet, Larry Page, Sergie Brin, larry Ellison, and Steve Ballmer. to reach 1 trillion USD of networth = 4.9% of US GDP
Vishwaguru needs 1 Adani to reach there.
Which insight goes to show that your size is more obvious when you are a big frog in a smaller well.

#SCOSummit2022 #SCO the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation compises 9 member countries. India and Pakistan joined up finally in 2017, and Iran might be admitted in 2022.
Between them they account for much of the world's contradictions. economist.com/the-economist-…
Russia looks to it because it is a pariah elsewhere. China as the World's Number 2 power in terms of econ and military might comes to it wielding the biggest clout. India and Pakistan admitted together in 2017 have been and are at loggerheads for as long as theyve been UN Members

#Uzbekistan - the country where the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) is meeting in Samarkand.
It was the Uzbek Soviet Socialist republic under the USSR till 1991. Islam Karimov moved on from First Secretary of the Communist Party to rule as president till he died in 2016
He won a rigged election in Dec 1991 winning 86% of the vote and then 3 further elections in 2000, 2007, and 2015 each time winning > 90% of the vote.
He ran a repressive and brutal regime. His successor and current President, Shavkat Mirziyoyev loosened things up.
#Uzenkistan is Constitutionally a secular nation. 95% of the population follow Islam. Article 29 "guarantees freedom of thought, speech and convictions". Article 31 guarantees "freedom of conscience" and "the right to profess or not to profess any religion".

Just leaving it here for people to decide for themselves: Some views espoused by Salvatore Babones, the Sydney university Professor whose opinion piece in Quadrant was advanced by @subramaniank as a counter to the criticism of Indian democracy by @TheEIU @vdeminstitute etc.
Read the comments and his responses to the Quadrantv essay criticising the critics for being the "real barbarians"

#India's right-wing #sanghi #whatsapp groups are seeing this message to day.
This series on the State run (i.e. RSS and BJP controlled) TV Channel will allegedly set the record straight on India's freedom movement.
here is a promotional video of the kind of stories that the 75-episode series will tell Indian citizens about

It is introduced by the Prof Heerman Tiwari.
In the opening scene in what looks like a Roman Catholic Seminary a man with a cross
around his neck is heard telling his men in stylised Hindi as spoken by the firangi, "India bahut hi prosperous hai, Unke saath trade karo, Hamara King ka yeh order hai, ki jo bhi tumhara ius mahaan yatra par hurdel kare, usko punish kiya jaye" The video then cuts to

My #Sanghi-infested #WhatsApp groups are sharing a story in an obscure California based online magazine (see pic).
Q. Why Now? the last election was in 2019 and the next is not till 2024.
A. To bury the shameful story of the shameful release of #BilkisBano's rapists. Image
The sad and depressing fact is that women have been involved in the unseemly jubilation and public felicitation of the 11 murderers and rapists who have been released.
"Why do women support Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi?" asks the article in fairobesrver.dot.com.

You might equally ask, Whe do you battered women stand by their tormentors?
