People out here think putting a bindi and a nose ring is going to win over Hindu hearts. Indian commies have been doing that since time immemorial.

Even if she joins BJP, never forget the mockery and insult that came our way from her quarters.
Also, simply switching sides to ride the populist wave and doing the most pragmatic thing for your potential career in politics isn't a "change of hearts".

She's going to have try harder than that to win over people's trust. But then again, she's a film celebrity 🤷‍♂️
Waah.

Each time an outsider joins in a lateral entry, a hard-working karyakarta is betrayed.

Things many may not know:

~There is now proof of 🇵🇰 fighting Armenia on behalf of Azerbaijan on the frontlines

~🇵🇰is the ONLY country in the world that does not recognise Armenia's sovereignty

~🇵🇰is risking serious sanctions for engaging in a war without official communication
But to be fair, Pakistan didn't have much choice.

They either risk international backlash by entering a war far from its borders, or they risk alienating their new-found alliance of losers by refusing to deploy in Nagorno-Karabagh.

Lose-lose situation.

Pakistan's capabilities are a world-renowned joke.

Pakistan’s ex Army Chief General Raheel Sharif has been tasked with fighting the Yemeni Houthis on behalf of Saudi, and it has been an embarrassment for both Pakistan and Saudi to say the least 😂

NEVER FORGET.

Some of the great "humanitarian work" done by Amnesty India

1)Supported CPIM's calls for scrapping AFSPA, Sedition, Death Penalty and the NSA
2) Opposed death penalty for Nirbhaya's rapists.

This is not an argument for/against death penalty. These guys were beyond reform & rehabilitation, and would only be a burden on society if let free, and a burden on the taxpayer if imprisoned for life.

3) Opposed India's right to regulate its own borders and deport illegal immigrants, especially those who have been kicked out of their own country for taking up arms against Myanmar and trying to carve out their own State in Rakhine.

Not really, that's a simplified way of putting it. He wants to carve out a sphere of influence in regions that him & the majority of Turks feel were "stolen" from them after WW1.

Basically assert Turkey as the dominant power in the Mediterranean crescent from Greece to Libya.
He's been going after potential "threats" like the Kurds & trying to establish friendly regimes in the MENA.

Not many know that Turkey's intervention in Syria wasn't the first move by Erdogan in this direction. The first was a regime change coup in Egypt that eventually failed.
The Muslim Brotherhood, under the guidance of Erdogan's AKP and inspired by their rampant success in Turkey, started growing their influence in Egypt.

After the 2011 revolution, the group was legalised. A year later, it came to power with Mohamed Morsi as President.

Just in: @Pres_Artsakh has confirmed that Turkish F-16s have been used in the attacks on Artsakh.

This is direct involvement that makes Turkey an ACTIVE BELLIGERENT in the war, and is likely a violation of the terms of agreement that US had set on the sale of the F-16s.
Azerbaijan doesn't have F-16s of its own and Turkey isn't allowed to sub-lease them either, which rules out the possibility of the jets being used by the Azeri air force.

Unless the Turkish Parliament declares a state of war within the next 48 hrs, this is a potential war crime.
I've said this before, I'll say it again:

Turkey's hyper jingoist foreign policy is the perfect case study of everything NOT to do as a regional power that seeks to carve out spheres of influence.

For those who don't know, the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is the longest active conflict in the world since 1988.

As if wiping out 1.5 mn Armenians wasn't enough, Turkey has been using Azerbaijan as a proxy to wage war against the Armenians.

Armenia has shot down 3 Azeri choppers
Armenia has declared martial law & mobilised its territorial army after clashes with Azerbaijan.

Here's a clip of an Azeri tank being destroyed, confirmed by both Press Tv and Reuters, but vehemently denied by Azeri authorities.
Some more footage of the clashes in the Nagorno-Karabagh region.

Given Russia has always fully backed Armenia, t will be interesting to see their reaction to the escalation & whether this boils into a Russo-Turkish proxy war that busts the myth of their bilateral "friendship"

You've missed the point, none of this is relevant here.

I'm talking about the future of Indian political discourse getting infiltrated with woke rhetoric as more young people digest English media which is dominated by intersectional crap, not Mahua Moitra's individual career.
AOC or anyone in the Indian context being committed to their ideology is what makes them dangerous: using emotion based snowflake rhetoric to push their sinister agenda of cultural marxism.

Case in point, the symbology of "peace and equality" used to justify the BLM riots.
Mahua Moitras will come and go, but the wokes will continue to grow by the year.

When one reads into the historical context of the project to create Brihot Banga (Greater Bengal), they'd know it's much bigger than Mamata's appeasement & that getting control of Assam has always been a central feature of this Islamist project that thrives on Bangla nationalism.
Ironically, it was CPIM leader & incumbent CM Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee who had started ringing the alarm bells during his final tenure He even requested LK Advani for help in containing the Bangla immigration crisis, which he realised was part of a larger demographic project.
Sadly for him, his realisation of what was truly transpiring in West Bengal's Madarsas would spell the end of his political career and the Left's long rule over the State.

His alarmist rhetoric over illegal immigration forced the Islamists & their votes to switch camp to TMC.

Why FCRA amendment was needed, oversimplified:

~River exists
~Bridge over river would bring socio-economic development to the region
~Unfriendly country sees potential of bridge
~Country finds out if a certain species in river is endangered
~Finds NGO interested in said species
~Unanimously pays NGO to do drama for endagnered species
~Drama begins
~NGO does rona-dhona for species
~NGO files petitions in SC
~Meanwhile, bridge project is stuck in limbo
~Crores of investor money is stuck
~Some investors start pulling out money
~Project delayed/abandoned
The majority of NGOs in today's day & age are pothing but pressure groups for hire that are used to disrupt crucial infrastructure projects in the name of social justice, humanitarianism or environment protection.

Just see what happened with Sterlite:

I get a lot of the grievances Trads have with the Modi Govt, but they really need to cut them more slack.

Whatever we've achieved so far has been done while remaining within the confines of a modern democracy, where we're answerable to both the electorate & the global community.
Literally every democracy in the world has a facade to maintain of one kind or another.

India, being an emerging global power, can't afford to compromise on its soft power the way other ambitious nationalist countries like Erdogan's Turkey have done so successfully.
The areas where the Govt deserve flak:
~Weak stance on state-control of Temples
~Expanding the minority welfare mechanism
~Weak approach to political killings in WB

Where it deserves credit:
~Cracking down on missionary orgs
~Normalising the criticism of political Islam

Over my dead body.

My soul will die a thousands deaths the day I speak the language of the wokes & include terms like "privilege", "micro-aggression" & "safe-space" in my vocabulary.

Whatever happened to not aping the West and leading by our own accord?

Never enjoyed this guy's work.
Not a fan of "progressive" elements in the Indian RW.

Instead of speaking "woke" lingo & validating it, it's time to stop playing by the rules set by Indian liberals, who merely import their rhetoric from the West & apply it in the Indian context.
Woke lingo = the language of Cultural Marxists.

"Institutionalized racism", "Casual sexism" & "White privilege" have been imported from the West & wrongly applied in India's context to solidify concepts like "Systematic Casteism", "Brahmanical Patriarchy" & "Savarna Privilege".

Fascinating how the Indian Left is more obsessed with Caste than the RW, and the Indian Right is more conscious of Class than the LW.

Yet, we're the "Casteists" & they're the warriors of the class struggle.

The most elitist & insulated people I've met are self-declared Leftists
Disconnected from ground reality in their gated communities, Leftists depend on poverty porn & literature to shape their views & opinions about the masses.

This literate is written by "intellectuals" who've merely inherited the baton of colonial condescension from the Brits.
Ironically, Algerian Marxist Frantz Fanon was among the 1st to write extensively about colonial hangover.

He claimed that those who inherited positions of power immediately after the colonists(France) departed were only furthering colonial morality & didn't represent the masses.

The Hon'ble judges needed to hear this. Sick & tired of judicial overreach.

On odd days, the courts work as the Executive.
On even days, they're virtually Censor Boards.

What's the point of having statutory bodies & separation of power when the judiciary wants to do everything?
Despite the mountain of evidence that what Sudarshan news was broadcasting was part of an investigative series into a serious case of infiltrationof the civil services, the court has deemed it as "vilification of a community.

Where the FOE gang at?

It's not our fault that those at the very heart of the conspiracy happen to be from a particular community.

The same we it's not our fault that most cattle-thieves turn out to be Muslim, and get painted as victims when the cattle owners use force to retrieve their property.

Absolutely.

I strongly & unapologetically oppose the calls to recognise same-sex marriage and introduce Hindu rituals in such a farce ceremony.

This will only further dilute the already besieged sanctity of the concept of marriage while defiling Hindu customs in the process.
From a legal stand-point, the concept of marriage exists for legitimising children born from a heterosexual relationship.

Homosexuals can't reproduce, so why should they get married at all?

There are no additional benefits of being married as opposed to a live-in relationship.
A homosexual can live his/her life with a partner of their choice, irrespective of whether they'remarried or not. This doesn't reflect on their individual rights & duties in any way.

First we decriminalised adultery, now this.

Might as well scrap the concept altogether FFS.

It's getting increasingly clear that the West must deal with tyrant Turkey delicately, or risk pushing them into Iran's embrace- a nation with diametrically opposite ambitions in the region- and creating a united Turko-Irani front.

They already pushed Turkey into Russia's trap. Image
Russia has used Turkey both as a bargaining chip against the West, as well as a fair-weather "agent" to secure its own interests in the region.

Knowing how shrewd Iran's foreign policy makers have been, the same could happen with Turkey in this scenario.

Image
Turkey wants to expand its own influence in the former territories of the erstwhile Ottoman Empire (the crescent from Syria to Libya) and Iran wants to use its proxies to increase influence in previously Saudi-overseen regions (Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen).

But both have a common enemy Image

Some quick pointers:

~Last fortnight has been Advantage India

~We've gained control of strategic heights before the onslaught of winter

~Some of these include areas we lost in '62

~The PLA can no longer squeeze more troops into the valley or they risk becoming sitting ducks
~7th Sept firing was the 1st such event at the LAC since 1975 (45 years)

~Our jawans have far more experience in the terrain than the PLA (insurgency+Pakistan)

~We have more & nearer supply depots to the frontline than China, who have to cross a good part of the Tibetan Plateau
~The distance between our two fronts (LAC to LOC) is way lesser than the distance between China's (Ladakh to South China Sea)

~Purely my opinion, but I feel our jawans are more disciplined than the PLA's, whose experience is mainly in stifling domestic anti-CCP dissent at home

Holding on to internationally recognised accords isn't a sign of weakness, especially when we've taken several strategic heights (some that we lost in '62). It's just diplomatic protocol.

India doesn't have any illusions about China. If push comes to shove, we'll do the needful.
Can't help but read between the lines & see through the rhetoric of habitual dissenters like Brahma Chellaney, Ajai Shukla, Pravin Sahney etc.

On odd days, they say we're no match for China. On even days, the same strategic thinkers are behaving like blood-thirsty war-mongers.
Make no mistake about it, the past 2 weeks have been advantage India and we now have the strategic upper hand before the onslaught of winter.

Is it so unreasonable to expect "experts" to give credit where its due and repose some trust & faith in our more than capable military?

You're confusing tolerance with being "pushovers".
Atheism means non-religious, NOT anti-religious.

Stop justifying crassness in the name of atheism, Navabi was clearly barking up the wrong tree.

Hope you take this as a bitter reality check. We're glad to prove you wrong.
Now incest and pedophilia is being justified by an ex-Muslim. Imagine my surprise!

@ArminNavabi is proof that you can take the Muslim out of Islam, but you can never take the Jihadi out of a Muslim.

Terms like "ex-muslim" etc are empty & meaningless rhetoric. Image
.@ArminNavabi continues to wrongly juxtapose his experiences with Islam (or other Abrahamic faiths) as a basis to attack Hinduism.

It's not our fault he was born into the most genocidal & regressive cult in the history of mankind only to have the tip of his penis cut off.

I like their articles, but this is BS.

If "post-Soviet Russia posed no threat", why did NATO not cease to exist?

Instead, it sabotaged Russia's relations with its ex-Soviet allies & encircled them with missile systems. Russia has only acted naturally- like a cornered animal.
The entire article is a conspiracy theory about how the current shoddy state of Europe is a result of Putin's grand master plan.

It may be so, but can you really blame him?

The West had the chance to normalise relations in the 90s, but instead chose to further isolate Russia.
You stole away nations from their sphere of influence, disrespected their interests, created enmity between them and their brothers (Ukraine), ignored China & made Russia the boogeyman, and now you're wondering why Putin wants to destabalise the very people who harmed Russia?🤡

Sorry, but I'll never get on this libertarian/FOE absolutism bandwagon.

I may be what other Hindus call a Carvaka, but if I see someone burning/defiling Hindu symbols & Gods, I'm not going to sit back and watch, let alone encourage it like a moron for furthering the FOE cause.
I fail to understand the obsession some have with this totalitarian level of FOE. I don't care two hoots about being nuanced.

Hs are constantly told we need to sensitize ourselves to other faiths, and we're labelled as thin-skinned when we react to others mocking our faith. Wtf?
Just like secularism, FOE is also a two-way street.

Condescension & mockery towards Hinduism has been so normalised, that we're expected to turn a blind eye to things that would have us beheaded if the tables were turned.

Insult/blatant mockery is not equal to FOE & criticism.
