2/n @_YogendraYadav ji, if I refer to "Brothers Against the Raj", Hashim the secretary of the Muslim League, the key man behind the rise of Suhrawardy, mentions in his memoir, "Let Us Go To The War", that he had help from Nikhil Chakravartti a young communist. Read.
3/n Not to forget, Hashim calls himself an "Islamic Socialist".
In early ancient Greek, the adjective átheos was used as a term of condemnation largely meaning "impious".
2/n Comes 5th Century BC, átheos began to indicate more deliberate and active godlessness with perspective of "severing relations with the gods" or "denying the gods".
3/n Then came the term term "asebēs"applied against those who denied or disrespected the gods of particular locality, even if they believed in other gods. In modern translations of classical texts átheos is mentioned as "atheistic".
2/n It was Mr George Jacob Holyoake who used term "Secularism" in 1851 through his magazine "Reasoner".
He writes in his book"English Secularism: A Confession of Belief", that it was all about "rejection of few Christian Scriptural beliefs".
3/n In the Reasoner Edition of July, 1871, he tells Secular knowledge is manifestly that kind of knowledge which is founded in this life which relates to the conduct of this life conduces to the welfare of this life and is capable of being tested by the experience of this life.
2/n Below are citations from
Beyond Belief: Islamic Excursions Among the Converted Peoples
1) Islam is in its origins an Arab religion. Everyone not an Arab who is a Muslim is a convert. Islam is not simply a matter of conscience or private belief. It makes imperial demands. +
3/n + A convert’s worldview alters. His holy places are in Arab lands; his sacred language is Arabic. His idea of history alters. He rejects his own; he becomes, whether he likes it or not, a part of the Arab story. The convert has to turn away from everything that is his.++
1/n #SadarPranam to Ishvara within everyone at @fpjindia . I'm replying because you quoted me in this article and tried to run a fact check on my statement saying: Savarkar Wanted Muslims to stay in India".
2/n I see @fpjindia , your R&D team only does one step, ie to collect data but do not run an analysis.
You rubbish my tweet by making statement that Savarkar actually did not wanted Muslims to stay in India by referring to mediocre, lowly analysed piece by @saliltripathi .
3/N Before I go on to explain that at how many places Mr @saliltripathi 's article has factual errors, let me explain you how Savarkar actually wanted Muslims to stay in India. One must understand that what Savarkar states as 2-nation is way way different than what ML said.
2/n “Karwa Chauth” is celebration of a tradition wherein wives along with children used to pray for safe return of Male who would be fighting war long away. The “Chauth” was like a landmark position of moon as even wheat showing began, hence it in pot (Karva).
3/n We celebrate many such tradition as celebration of wars we fought. @radvaz perhaps you might not be aware but people in Odisha light Diyas on banana leaf boats & make it float towards SE on Kartik Purnima. You might call it superstition but the truth is that +
Life isn’t about marks but to learn from marks you got.
While I had just finished representing India in an international painting competition, I had got 38 in Maths Pre-Board class X. Everyone began to taunt my parents.
I worked hard & ended up making that 38 to 100 in Maths.
I also ensured that my parents aren’t required to pay for Tutions, considering the humble background I came from.
The 2 months of hard work for maths had now made it my fav subject.
Once a hater of maths, takes up PCM at school for +2. All goes well, but I meet an accident while cycling down to examination Center during boards of XII. Somehow I managed to write for 35 marks & just managed passing marks of 33.
@aumkotwal , the same source further quotes Manrique to explain condition under Shah Jahan. His tax collectors carried away peasants along with their children & wives to “slave fairs” to realise the tax.
@aumkotwal The Fatawa-e-Alamgiri sponsored by Aurangzeb had laws to encourage slavery.
It had provisions for:
1)the right of Muslims to purchase + own slaves
2)Muslim man's right to have sex with slave girl he owns or owned by another Muslim (with master's consent).
Give me the Sanskrit verse + word-word meaning to justify your claims. & to see Krishna marrying many, & to claim that Hindu Dharma supports polygamy, you need to first see him as real history. Once, you have done this, we may discuss the context too.
I have many other things to do apart from twitter. Again for the time spent on twitter today it has always been wasting time on unnecessary fire spread by u. Could u not wait in all civility for me to finish the thread?
