Thread: #FabIndia’s digital partner is headed by a Congressi woke.

She and her husband have an obsession with Urdu. She cracks Gomutra jibes.

Here’s what I have found.

Explosive ahead. So, in 2019, FabIndia appointed Zeno Group as the digital partner. exchange4media.com/marketing-news…

I don't watch porn. But that doesn't mean I will deprive others from watching it.

There is a hype that increasing rape cases are due to pornographic content.

Systematic studies suggest it is not always the case. (1/n) This study (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…) was conducted in 2014.

It was India specific. Growth of rape cases, population, internet users were taken into consideration.

Sample was large enough (1971-2008).

Conclusion: No such relation found. (2/n)

Without any backing of data, Twitter has already decided to call it largest organised strike.

Narrative building?

#Rihanna ...and subtle promotions are happening in this way.

THREAD: Do you know how did Urdu media peddle conspiracy theories on #MumbaiAttacks?

Prof Rakesh Sinha and his team did an analysis. I’m sharing their takeaways here.

@roznamasahara called it as Mossad and CIA conspiracy like 9/11. #MumbaiTerrorAttack (1/n) Nisheman and Rahmaan-e-Mulk gave a new conspiracy theory.

These #MumbaiTerrorAttacks, according to them, were done by Hindu fundamentalists and Mossad. (2/n)

તમને ખબર છે કે ભારતીય સ્વતંત્રતા ચળવળ વખતે પણ #ગરબા પ્રખ્યાત હતા?

#નવરાત્રિ દરમિયાન આઝાદીને સંબંધિત ગરબા ગામેગામ ગવાતા અને લોકજાગૃતિનું કામ થતું.

કેટલાકનાં ઉદાહરણ આપું છું. (૧/n) "મા હિમા તે ચલથી ઊતર્યાં મા કાળી રે,
માએ ધાર્યું છે ચંડી રૂપ ભારત મૈયા રે  
માએ દીઠાં ગોરાનાં પાપ મા કાળી  
માને હૈયે થયો સંતાપ ભારત મૈયા રે"

આ ગરબો "મા પાવા તે ગઢથી ઉતર્યાં"ને મળતો આવે છે. (૨/n)

Let’s talk about Ecosystem. I’m putting it straight without mincing words.

What happened in #Hathras case and #Rajasthan priest death case?

- National politicians from the Congress and other parties visited the victim family.
- No national leader of BJP went to Rajasthan. (1/n) What about the compensation?

- Opposition demanded more and gave some compensation in Hathras. Yogi govt gave ₹25 lakh, govt job and flat.

- No serious pressure on the Rajasthan govt by the BJP. Gehlot is keeping mum.

In 1938, Gandhiji had inaugrated Laxminarain Temple, famously known as Birla Temple, in Delhi.

Staunch liberal and secular? 😁 6th point is plainly wrong, wrong and wrong.

Gandhiji quoted Swami Vivekananda too.

"I have gone through his works very thoroughly, and after having gone through them, the love that I had for my country became a thousand-fold."

Thread on how to deal with Covid-19 if you/your family members get infected:

Totally scientific and rational.

My both parents were covid-19 positive before few days and now they have recovered.

Father had mild symptoms and mother was symptomatic. (1/n) First step is not to get scared if anyone starts developing symptoms.

Quarantine them in a isolated room and give them oximeter along with thermometer.

Second step is keep record of temperature, pulse rate and oxygen level for thrice in a day. Write in notebook. (2/n)

THREAD: Heard about "cultural backwardness" of Gujarat throughout the day. Let's share some interesting facts.

When world was facing WWII, there was Gujarati king Maharaja Digvijaysinhji who gave refuge to 300 Polish kids in his palace of Balachadi. (1/n) He treated them well and taught them for free. He hired Christian priest to give religious education.

On the honour of Maharaj, Warsaw, Poland has square namely "Good Maharaja square".

In 2016, Polish parliament passed animous resolution to give respect:poland.pl/history/histor…

Person who calls Rama as fake God, Gaurakshak as cow terrorist and take Gomutra jibes is @VodafoneIN employee.

Why Vodafone is allowing such rampant Hinduphobes in company? One more.

THREAD: Let’s meet @milligazette, newspaper of “Indian” Muslims.

It mourns Afzal Guru’s death and pray tributes to him.

Not only this, It calls Afzal Guru as late and honours him.
(1/n) It does contempt of court, questions credibility of honourable court by equating its previous decisions.

Also, it goes on to say that government hanged Afzal Guru because of votes. (2/n)
