Modi’s “love” for pasmanda Muslims is bearing fruit. Hindutva policies have resulted in Muslims dropping out of higher education. Just between 2019-21, 1.80lakh Muslims dropped out of higher education. No community has seen such drastic fall in history 1/
indianexpress.com/article/opinio… Uttar Pradesh is the worst, accounting for over 50k Muslim drop outs. Followed by J&K. Neither Bulldozer Baba’s policies, nor the illegal reading-down of Article 370 has delivered a golden age. Muslims are 20% of UP’s population, but are just 4.5% of total enrollment 2/

1. For Finance Minister of Vishwaguru, the benchmark is Pakistan! Muslims in India have flourished DESPITE the Sangh Parivar’s anti constitutional ideology, not BECAUSE of it. ndtv.com/india-news/mus… 2. For how long are Muslims going to be connected to Pakistan? We are not hostages or mascots against Pakistan. We’re citizens. We want to be treated with dignity & justice.

THREAD: In today’s hearing in Supreme Court on #Hijab, @MNizamPasha for the petitioners made brilliant arguments

1. There is a conflict between SC judgements on whether only essential religious practices are protected or if all sincere beliefs are protected by Article 25 Image 2. Article 25 guarantees every individual freedom to practice their faith. Recently, the 5 judge bench in review of the #Sabarimala judgement said that there is a conflict between Shirur Mutt & Dargah Committee cases that has to be resolved by 9 judges

अहमदुल्लाह शाह, 1787 में पैदा हुए, वो फैज़ाबाद के मौलवी के नाम से मशहूर हुए। 1857 की अज़ीम हिंदुस्तानी बग़ावत की सरकर्दा शख़्सियत में से एक थे। अवध के इलाके में, मौलवी अहमदुल्लाह को 'बग़ावत का मिनारा' कहा जाता था। Image 1857 की जंग ए आज़ादी के दौरान, मौलवी अहमदुल्लाह शाह ने फैज़ाबाद को मरकज़ बनाया और तमाम अवध इलाकें में बग़ावत शुरू कर दी। उन्होंने फैज़ाबाद की मस्जिद-ए-सराई को अपना मरकज़ बनाया।

Today is “August Kranti Diwas”, the day Gandhiji launched #QuitIndiaMovement in 1942. Yusuf Mehrally coined the slogan “Quit India” that inspired Indians against British. Mehrally went to jail 8 times. Wrote no mercy petitions & never collaborated with the British. #IndiaAt75 British shot Indians who saluted tiranga, arrested at least one lakh Indians, carried out public floggings & levied collective fines

Mehrally & most senior Congress leaders were jailed. At the time, he was Bombay’s mayor. He was the first socialist to be elected to the post

कस ली है कमर अब तो, कुछ करके दिखाएंगे,
आज़ाद ही हो लेंगे, या सर ही कटा देंगे।

दिलवाओ हमें फांसी, ऐलान से कहते हैं,
ख़ूं से ही हम शहीदों के, फ़ौज बना देंगे।

शहीद अशफ़ाक़ुल्लाह खान का शुमार भारत के मुमताज़ मुजहीदन-ए-आज़ादी में होता है। उनका जन्म 22 अक्टूबर 1900 को शाहजहांपुर में हुआ था।अशफ़ाक़ुल्लाह शायर भी थे, ‘वारसी’ और ‘हसरत’ तख़ल्लुस के तौर पर इस्तेमाल करते थे।

जिस दौर में अंग्रेज हिन्दुओं और मुसलमानों को लड़ाने में लगे थे एक ऐसे जांबाज़ हस्ती ने जन्म लिया जिसकी ज़िन्दगी भाईचारे और बहादुरी का पैग़ाम थी।

In light of #75yearsofIndependence, we're celebrating Muslims' role in freedom movement. So far, we've seen freedom fighters from Hyderabad, Mewat, Malegaon, Bhopal & Ranchi. Today, we turn to Bengal's "Titu Mir" who led a peasant rebellion against Zamindars & British 1/n Image Titu Mir (Syed Mīr Nisār Alī) was from a peasant family in Haidarpur, Barasat. He had memorised the Holy Qur'an and was a hafiz. He knew Bengali, Persian & Urdu. Titu went on pilgrimage to Makkah, where he learnt about Islamic principles & practices. 2/n Image

Continuing with our efforts to remember Indian Muslims' great contribution in the war of independence, today we remember Maulana Barkatullah Bhopali. Born and initially educated in Bhopal, the Maulana lit the fire of India's freedom across the world. 1/n He was a staunch anti-colonialist, Vice-President of the Ghadar movement, a strident defender of Hindu-Muslim unity and the Prime Minister of the Government of India in exile, set up in Afghanistan. Its President was Raja Mahendra Pratap. 2/n

This is the #Malegaon fort in #Maharashtra. It witnessed not one but two different instances of Indian Muslims’ resistance against British

In 1818, during third Anglo-Maratha war, Muslim soldiers of Maratha army defiantly held the fort; even as Chatrapati & Peshwa surrendered 30 soldiers died & many more were injured during siege of the fort. It took the British 36 guns, 8,000 shells & 35,500 pounds of gunpowder to finally take over the fort

Almost a 100 years later, in 1921, the bugle of revolution was again sounded in Malegaon

If the economy is doing so well, why has the government not fixed OROP pensions and given the arrears to our soldiers, despite Supreme Court orders to do it by June. The OROP pension was to be fixed in 2019 in any case. timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/revision… If the economy is doing so well, why is our Air Force having only 30 squadrons of fighter jets instead of 42? Is that not why you are forcing our brave pilots to fly the Mig21 instead of phasing them out?

“Tell the Maulana not to worry about his son. What is destined to happen by Allah’s will, will happen. But he must not break before the Raja and seek mercy”

Remembering a forgotten heroine of our freedom movement “Amma Bi” Asiya Khatoon Mewati. The brave woman said these words as she faced the world alone, with her son being severely ill & while her husband Maulana Mohammad Ibrahim Khan Alwari was imprisoned for his participation in freedom movement. He’d participated in Salt Satyagrah with Gandhiji & was also injured

Yesterday @aimim_national organised a full day academic conference to remember Indian Muslims’ rich contribution in our freedom movement. Starting today, I will be sharing some stories of these great men and women till 14 August 1. Maulana Alauddin, Turrebaaz Khan & the martyrs of 17 July, 1857

Today the govt called an all party meeting on the Sri Lanka crisis. However, it used the opportunity to raise unrelated issues about finances of Indian states 1/n 1. @DrSJaishankar in his initial remarks said that there’s a “misinformed campaign & comparison between India & Sri Lanka”. If so why did DEA have to make a presentation? Many opposition parties opposed this politicisation. 2/n

Zilch. This is the outcome of the talks. These words mean nothing except show up the Modi government as weak and clueless. The government is no longer talking of restoring the status quo ante while Modi is unable to even say China. Our foreign minister @DrSJaishankar meets the Chinese counterpart at Bali and doesn’t even state that bilateral ties won’t be normal unless border crisis is resolved. @PMOIndia is keen to attend to SCO summit with Xi after attending the BRICS summit. Is this our strategy?

.@narendramodi, आप ये क्यों चाहते हैं की चार साल तक देश की रक्षा करने के बाद, यही युवा पूर्व सैनिक या तो अडानी और अम्बानी के घर के बाहर नौकरी की लाइन में खड़ा हो, या बीजेपी के दफ्तरों के बाहर चौकीदारी करे।

ये सरकार युवाओं के भविष्य और सेना के सामर्थ्य के साथ खेल कर कुछ हज़ार करोड़ रुपये बचा लेगी पर उस से फौज का या गरीब किसान का फायदा तो कभी नहीं करेगी, फायदा उन्ही दो crony businessmen का होगा

I once again appeal to the government to stop this devious manner of working, listen to the youth of this country, immediately rollback this cruel scheme of contractual recruitment and make up the shortfall in men and equipment for our armed forces. A political decision, extremely unpopular with our youth because it plays with their future, is being forced down their throats by 56-inch hiding behind the military leadership which is bound by discipline.

1. I’ve received an excerpt of the FIR. This is the first FIR I’ve seen that’s not specifying what the crime is. Imagine an FIR about a murder where cops don’t mention the weapon or that the victim bled to death. I don’t know which specific remarks of mine have attracted the FIR 2. It appears that Delhi Police lacks the courage to pursue cases against Yati, Nupur Sharma & Naveen Jindal etc This is why the delayed & weak response

The name of our Prophet Muhammad PBUH is exalted & does not need terrorists like Al-Qaeda to defend it.

1. Bhagwat’s incendiary speech on #Gyanvapi mustn’t be ignored. He said an agitation for #Babri was necessary “for historical reasons”. In other words, RSS didn’t respect SC & participated in demolition of masjid. Does this mean that they’ll do something similar on Gyanvapi also? 2. Who is Mohan or Nadda to give an “assurance” on these issues? They hold no constitutional posts. Let @PMOIndia give a clear message that he stands by 1991 law. He has taken an oath on the Constitution. If he stands by it, all these Hindutva upstarts would have to stop
