#Bareilly: Principal Nahid Siddiqui and shiksha mitra Wazeeruddin has been suspended for making children recite Md Iqbal’s “lab pe aati hai dua”.

Cops have booke duo on the charges of hurting religious sentiments.

However Principal Siddiqui said she was on leave when this happened & in past also she has refused permission for this particular poem when sikhsha mitra Wazeeruddin insisted.

++Info:Allama Iqbal is known for his “tarana-e-hind” song - ‘sare jahan se accha’ written in 1904 when it immediately become popular patriotic song depicting his secular views.
“maz.hab nahīñ sikhātā aapas meñ bair rakhnā
hindī haiñ ham vatan hai hindostāñ hamārā”.

..his “tarana-e-milli”, a tribute to MusIim Ummah, in 1910 brought staunch contrast to his earlier philosophy.

“Chin o Arab hamaraa hindostaan hamaara
Muslim hain hum
Watan hai saara jahan hamaara”

Full nazm-
Iqbal’s religious convictions became more obvious when he first time delivered the ‘two nation theory’ speech in Allahabad (now Prayagraj) as president of Muslim League in 1930.

Further, Iqbal in his own words “I confess to be a pan-IsIamist…”

And so his vision was regarded after formation of Pakistan with honor as
Mufakkir-e-Pakistan (philosopher), and Hakeem-ul-Ummat (Sage of the Ummah).

That’s the part of the history for information consumption.

Now whether Bareilly incident of conduct violation is a deliberate attempt by a teacher or just a matter of experiment, investigators and Education deptt will decide. Ppl anyway have liberties to make opinions.

“Christians are persecuted minorities in India under BJP’s Hindu ultranationalist PM Modi”

You may shocked to learn that this propaganda standee is installed at France’s most visited tourist place Sacre Coeur Church, Paris.
@MEAIndia @IndiaembFrance

Roman Catholic Church Sacre Coeur, which attracts 11mn visitors annually (~30K day), is recently being approved as National Historic Monument by French ministry on 8th Dec 2022.

2/ Image
The banner, seemingly having Indian boys picture, has headlines “INDE (India)
where Nationalism excludes Christians”.

Interesting President Murmu today only visited a Catholic Church in the capital to wish the community for Christmas.

What's the source of such data shared by Rahul Gandhi in every other post?

As far as 'the Unemployment Rate% in India' is concerned, it has been between 5 to 6% in the last 20 years (except pandemic-years). Now it is a little above than pre-pandemic range.

Rahul Gandhi tweeted Youth Emp Rate% is 42% (source?). Even that doesn't seem correct figure. As of 2021, it was 28%.

NOTE - 'Youth unemployment%' is tricky. Why the word "Youth" makes a lot difference? Because it measures the age bracket 15-24yr..

..whereas, the essential graduation study goes up to 21yrs in India. So generally this figure would always be on the higher side.

Yes it is rising gradually, but how much?
Before the great 2008 recession= 17-18%
2014 = 21.22%
2019 = 22.74%
2021 = 28.26% (pandemic effect)

3 days back I highlighted the misleading headlines by @TOIIndiaNews that the KAR bill is about the ban on Non-FSSAI certificates and NOT Halal or any food consumption.

Today, ToI has issued a clarification word to word, rectifying its mistake.

..followed by global consequences of misleading headlines and detailed information on the proposed bill.

This is consequences of misleading headlines. A selective narrative from Gulf will start now.

@TOIIndiaNews , I highlighted this misinformation yesterday. And now its on global news.
@MIB_India fyi ImageImage
HJS who raised the concern first, only talks about arbitrary certifications, charges to obtain it, economic repercussions. They talked about entire Halal market (food, cosmetic etc). They submitted a memorandum to KAR minister that explicitly mentioned “certification”

2/ ImageImageImage
The letter written by @CTRavi_BJP to the governor urges prohibition of certification issuance by anyone other than state/centr govt affiliated body. Interesting the letter didn’t even have word “halal”. The minister also mentioned the bill may bring ₹5KCr additional revenue.

Alt New Co-fo @zoo_bear found on the wrong foot again, and now trying to mislead by sharing further wrong info.

@RShivshankar referred to a report in 2008 by Raghuram Rajan committee proposing financial products in compliance with certain faith/religion.

Here is that report.
Link to report…

This is the cover and acknowledgment page written by Raghuram Rajan.

There are 100s of report coverage, analysis, further studies on this subject.

The news got buzz again after many years when RBI dropped the proposal by RRR.

What explains Rana Ayyub's dropping followers count?

While her Insta 'monthly gained followers' are touching zero, Twitter count running into negative since few months & had lost ~5K followers in just Nov'22.

A handle with over a million followers, this is rare scenario.

The covid-fund-scam accused is quite vocal on SM & follows a conscious pattern on platforms. e.g. Insta posts often include leisure trips, but the sentiments for Twitter are more political & communal.

However, the loss of the count is evident on both platforms on daily basis.
Note that daily or monthly gained followers count is the delta of "followed" - "unfollowed".

e.g. if 10 new followers are added, and yet 'total gained' count is (-5), means total 15 handles unfollowed.

So the leaving handles per day may be higher than its appears in stats.
