Centre must ban all marriages under Sharia if a women in contract wasn’t born a Muslim. All such marriages should be under Special Marriages Act only. This will help reduce misuse to a great extent. It’s perfectly constitutional.
If govt can ban triple talaq, why not this?
As far as data is concerned, there is plenty out there but it’s not like this will convince those who are hellbent on denying abuse in Sharia marriages.
But let’s see data in just last 1 month.
Situation is so bad in Kanpur that Police has to form a SIT
SC orders @SureshChavhanke to defer remaining episodes on “infiltration of Muslims” in UPSC.
Issue is not “infiltration by Muslims”. It’s the Govt whose own policy says Ms will be given special consideration in recruitment.
You don’t need data to prove bias AT ALL.
When govt’s official policy states that minorities will be given special consideration in govt jobs, debating over data (increase in M recruitment) is useless.
It’s like with RTE. It doesn’t apply to minority schools. End of discussion. Data shouldn’t even come into picture.
Now the policy.
Point No 10 of PM’s 15 point programme for Minorities:
a) In the recruitment of police personnel, State Governments will be advised to give special consideration to minorities. For this purpose, the composition of selection committees should be representative.
BJP should be ashamed of itself. Reserving 75% jobs to locals in Haryana will definitely hurt the growth of pvt sector, however small it is. More importantly, BJP is championing these BreakingIndia ideas just to be in power with Chautalas. Is this your New India @narendramodi?
These kinds of destructive ideas do not suit a national party much less a party which also claims to be nationalistic.
75% quote for locals is applicable to jobs that pay less than Rs 50k per month. What will IT companies in Gurgaon do because they hire most of their starting employees at Rs 25k salary? Move to NOIDA I guess. @mlkhattar do you realise the damage you will do to state’s economy?
Ignore Twitter trads and read real scholars like Shatavadhani R. Ganesh on Varna in Hinduism.
Quoting him verbatim in this twitter thread. Will plug his pieces at the end.
Before starting, remember this: “varṇa is not a core aspect of Hinduism.”
“It comes under what is called viśeṣa dharma, a set of rules applicable only with limited jurisprudence and are bound by geographical and temporal constraints. It is contextual, not universal, and therefore is a peripheral aspect of our tradition...”
VARNA IN VEDAS
We know for sure that “varṇa has nothing to do with race and ethnicity”. It might have been “a distinction based on occupation or based on the tribes that people belonged to.”
“In the Ṛgveda Saṃhitā, varṇa is not used in the sense of ‘caste’ or ‘class’.....”
If the victim is Hindu, especially in saffron robes, his death (even if it has a communal angle) is played down by the Immoral Leftists but if the victim is from the minority community, especially in religious attire, his death is played up (even if it has a secular angle).
Look at Palghar case. First they tried to ignore it and bury the news. When Social Media folks posted 3 lakh+ tweets, they are forced to take notice. But even then, they can’t issue a simple condemnation. Their main concern is not lynching but that it shouldn’t be communalised.
Punjab/Haryana passed law delaying paddy sowing to July hence harvest in Oct/Nov when winds are stationary in North India so gas chamber over Delhi.
Made sense. I also got fooled by this.
But talked to a couple of farmers back home.
They laughed at this logic 😂
Farmers always sown it in July in Haryana. In Punjab/North Haryana, where water is abundant, farmers grew a short duration paddy crop before July paddy season. So, two crops. Harvest for the 2nd crop was always in October.
Law passed by states only to stop groundwater depletion.
I asked farmers why not grow paddy in April soon after wheat harvest.
What if govt gives water via canal?
‘No power lines in farms to pump the water in fields and keep them inundated which paddy needs. Diesel too costly’
Around 20 people carrying AIMIM flags entered the Dhatkidih village, where the lynching of Ansari took place and threatened the women with dire consequences apart from issuing rape threat. They also allegedly removed religious flags from a temple.
'The reason the Ulema prevail over the reformers is that the propositions they articulate, the mindset they seek to perpetuate are indeed the propositions and the mindset which the founts of Islam—the Quran and the Sunna of the Prophet—prescribe"
- Arun Shourie, World Of Fatwas
"It is not just ignorance of the texts which defeats the liberal. It is that Ulema are faithful to the texts."
"The claim of the ulema, indeed of Islam that it shall regulate all of life is of the very essence of the religion. The claim is: Islam, in practice that means the ulema shall regulate the totality of life."
The act allows the state govt to ban any organisation found guilty of violating the Act's provisions from receiving funding from within and outside of the country. This could prove to be the most effective tool in countering mass conversions backed by foreign money.
CM Thakur deserves two cheers.
First cheer for prescribing max jail (up to 7 yrs) for forced conversions of minors/women esp by marriage. @swati_gs has reported cases where minor girls were converted first and then married according to Muslim Personal Law. All legal until now.
A silent revolution is happening in news and media space. Those in the establishment in studios in Lutyens, Noida and SoBo should be worried. If you thought Twitter, Fb or social media threatened your monopoly, you haven't seen anything yet. Democratisation of data will bury you.
DeMo (of data) would scare the incompetent entitled media elites who made careers in this field due to friends and family connections. Thanks to this DeMo, scores of youth from small towns, even villages are taking to journalism. I first witnessed this phenomenon in Jind bypoll.
Using just a decent camera and a lapel mic, these youngsters (who may have been otherwise unemployed before DeMo and a subject of pity for MSM) are bringing news/views/stories WEEKLY/DAILY from areas no media house covered earlier (either due to logistics or lethargy).
