It's no wonder that Sanjay Kak, a dear friend of terrorist Yasin Malik, published this piece on #TheKashmirFiles in Al Jazeera of all places. He is a Delhiite who was neither born nor raised in Kashmir and has never experienced the fear of targeted killings and persecution. 4000 families still live there? Out of hundreds of thousands that left? That's a win? You don't even mention how they're still under attack and being killed today? Have you forgotten the 4 bullets pumped into Bal Krishan Bhat's body just last week?

Two weeks ago, journalist Raqib Naik maliciously distorted a tweet and tagged my medical practice & hospital. I asked him to delete the false tweet.

Naik refused & I've been deluged with hateful comments since. My lawyer sent this letter that outlines the chronology of events: First, Raqib lied saying I called for genocide. Now he lies again saying I called for “mass” retribution.

This deceit has led to vicious attacks and Raqib is doubling down today, leading to another avalanche of hate on #RamNavami of all days.

Endorsing a genocide? How dare you @raqib_naik.

I'm a Kashmiri Hindu whose family members were killed, faced ethnocide & ethnic cleansing.

I want those terrorists that perpetrated that violence to face consequences––only them.

That is what retribution means.

Delete the tweet Image If you're a journalist & wanted clarification of my tweet, why didn't you contact me?

Instead you tweet the libelous claim that I endorse genocide of Kashmiri Muslims––many of whom are friends & neighbors––and tag hospitals where I serve people of all faiths & ethnicities.

This is how my mama ji (uncle) escaped a bullet from Bitta Karate and is still alive today. I have not told this story before. #TheKashmirFiles #KashmirFiles 1/n Before Farooq Ahmed Dar became a psychopath terrorist, he was just another kid with a pet name of Bitta who used to play cricket in Srinagar with my family. My uncle even gave him money for school. 2/n

As a Kashmir native, I'm shocked that @HarvLRev actually platformed, then whitewashed, a terrorist ideology that cleansed my family and 400,000 others from Kashmir. Do you realize @HarvLRev that deploying the "Settler/Colonial" binary is killing Hindus & Muslims right now? 1/ While the thesis of the article @HarvLRev printed is horrific & actually violent, the logical fallacies & rhetoric are glaring.
The abstract argues that abrogation of 370 unleashed a settler/colonial project, but then says that the Article's impact was "de minimis!" 2/

I see that @Hindus4HR is at its usual attention-seeking game: attack @HinduAmerican to curry favor with Islamist @IAMCouncil & @EqualityLabs and try to get noticed.
How far will they go? They will demean our saints and slander the Gita. Yes, that far. 1/n If you want to be a useful idiot for Hinduphobes, that's a choice you make. But to perpetuate the miasma that caste discrimination is intrinsic to Hindu practice--while quoting our Hindu scripture? That is irredeemably revolting and insulting. 2/n

No, @AudreyTruschke, as a board member of HAF, I can confirm that your name was never discussed as part of a coordinated attack, nor ever been brought up at the board level. Any such accusations are defamatory. It’s actually you who has been involved in targeted harassment. (1/3) You @AudreyTruschke have mocked Hindu texts, claimed Lord Rama was a misogynistic pig, that rape & “rape culture” were endemic to Hinduism, portrayed Hindus as bizarre “cow piss” drinkers, taught students that Hinduism is inherently oppressive, racist, and violent.

#Breaking: #ChicagoIndiaResolution slamming India, introduced by @chialderwoman fails. Chicago’s Indian/Hindu community was galvanized against the biased resolution and good sense prevailed. (1/3) Just before the resolution failed, Alderwoman Hadden recommended a piece in the @chicagotribune by @nausheenhussain to influence vote. Note the obvious bias/Hinduphobia under “” & denial of the murder of 52 Hindu pilgrims. This is the erasure Chicago Hindus faced. (2/3)

Here are 5 quotes that will re-shape your understanding of caste. Courtesy of @desiprism. For now, follow on Insta, instagram.com/desiprism/ "Caste is a modern phenomenon, that it is, specifically, the product of a historical encounter between India and Western colonial rule." – Nicholas Dirks

Correct. The state of California @CalDFEH filed a lawsuit against @Cisco in federal court, then dropped it and re-filed in state court. I've read the complaint, & it's full of anti-Hindu racist bias. The state's lawsuit is so absurd that it even tries to define Hinduism: 1/n "As a strict Hindu social and religious hierarchy, India’s caste system defines a person’s status based on their religion, ancestry, national origin/ethnicity, and race/color—or the caste into Which they are born—and will remain until death." 2/n

There are a number of Hindus who seem to be confused about the US elections, and the impact they will have on India and Hindu Americans.

First – @JoeBiden won. The only thing pending are the usual Electoral College formalities. Talk of voter fraud and illegal ballots 1/n won't change the overall status. Even former Republican president #43, George Bush, has congratulated Biden-Harris.

Trump is only the 10th president in US history not to be re-elected, for two reasons: his handling of covid (primary), and his personality (secondary). It is 2/n

UPDATE: my Twitter account was locked for 5 days after exposing a group attacking Hindu American candidates. Why? Because I posted the group's public registration form that contained their address. Apparently this incompetent group filed its papers using a private address. 1/n Twitter rightfully does not allow posting of private information. But is it my responsibility to know that CAPI, a sham organization created just to attack Hindu candidates, registered itself using a private home address??

So after consulting an attorney, I filed an appeal. 2/n

Islamists are now taking their anti-Hindu attacks straight into US schools, through speech & debate competitions. Here is an upcoming debate topic for the Texas Forensic Association: "A Resolution to Curb Hindu Nationalism." It's full of lies, Hinduphobia, and hate. (1/3) Texas Forensic Association is a high school competitive debate & speech club, that “prides itself on diversity, inclusiveness, love, and change”. So why are they propelling Hinduophobic lies? TFA needs to answer. (2/3)

Damn right she wants to normalize the swastika, @StopAntisemites. So do over a billion Hindus! Let me take one of @HinduAmerican's articles and explain why. (1/11) In Sanskrit, the word swastika is a combination of ‘su’ (meaning ‘good’) and ‘asti’ (meaning ‘to exist’). (2/11)

1. @Stairwa78009667, I commend you for finding this original letter. Over the years I have asked about 100 Kashmiri Pandit leaders about its validity and not one could vouch for it. Yet 23 KPs out of 350000+ who fled Kashmir signed it. So what does this letter mean? 2. If the letter is being used to prove that Jagmohan made KPs leave, that’s false. On March 8, 1990 all newspapers posted this message that KPs should not leave. It did mention setting up camps for KPs in the valley, which is how the Jagmohan myth was hatched. Daily Excelsior:

The Sushruta Samhita is the oldest surgery manual in existence – over 2000 years old. I have a copy of the multi-volume series (in Sanskrit, w/ English translation). Nasal reconstruction for trauma or cancer is still performed the same way. The British adopted India’s surgical techniques, and for years it was thought that the British had pioneered facial reconstruction surgery. However a review of British Colonial records in India showed that they learned the techniques from Indian surgeons.

@ramana_brf (1/3). One feedback I have repeatedly receive from senior Congressional members of both parties is that Indian Americans do not publicly thank, or financially support, their elected representatives proportionate to their affluence, compared to other ethnic groups. I agree. @ramana_brf (2/3). The reason that the Democratic Party is so favorable to the Muslim perspective, and not as much to the Hindu perspective, is precisely due to the former's better engagement, frankly since 9/11. Let's give credit where it's due.
