Many manual scavengers of today can be traced back to the Muslim invasions.

"scholars such as Malkani (1980) among others established that the Bhangis (manual scavengers) were warriors who made captives after they became the prey to the enemy, particularly Muslim invaders..." Image So warriors aka kshatriyas, became bhangis due to Islamic force. So much for Islam being "emancipatory"—they created dalits.

"The people who were made captives were
forced to clean indoor latrines and to dispose of the night soil. When these captives were set free, they were not allowed to live in society, and they thus formed a separate caste of Bhangis and continued the work of scavenging.Image

I don't come from a Brahmin jaati. But I find the hate against this small minority of Brahmins in India appalling. And it is mainstreamed by the Left today though its origins are in colonial missionary scholarship which saw Brahmins as the biggest impediment for conversion of Hindus. This is why they created fake narratives of "Brahminical oppression." Naturally conversion by the White Christian saviors was the antidote to this oppression. It was the solution for which the problem was created.

Ultimately Brahmin-hate is a proxy for Hindu-hate. We must speak up against it. Unfortunately, many on the Left who propagate this hate are also (jaati) Brahmins as part of intellectual fashion. But in Abrahamic conflicts, they will be strung up just like the others. That's who we need to wake up.

Have you noticed you how Indian restaurants are getting so generic. They all have the same menu. Every one has palak paneer and tandoori roti and dal makhani, from a dhaba to a 5-star. With some "hot and sour soup" and "chili manchurian" thrown in for good measure. All in English only of course, even in a dhaba in UP.

Only Mughlai and Chinese food in English is "Indian"?

I was reading the manuscript of an upcoming book from @GarudaPrakashan, "Hindi Medium Types" and this phrase struck me: “No Indian home has a tandoor, but Indian food has tandoori roti.”

How did we get so lost? Yes, but imagine a country where no "upscale" restaurant has anything you'd eat at home. And the only place you'd get tawa roti and regular daal is at a very poor man's stall. (the middle class dhaba would have the "standard" menu).

How is caste a British creation? People
cite traditional references to dispute this.

But the rules and mapping of varna/jati were dynamic and there was no centralized enforcement. The British took a disparate system of social norms and bureaucratized it into a “caste system.” This caste system was created through institutions like the caste census, combined with colonial scholarship that fabricated narratives of the “static Orient” with “5000 years of caste oppression.”

This was based on cherry-picking references, ignoring counter-evidence and then teaching this “theory” via academia and the bureaucracy.

I was among the first to criticize the BJP for not doing enough for Hindu civilizational issues and also for its minority schemes.

This critique is from 2016.

However the alternative is *much* worse. If the Congress alliance comes to power, it will take us decades back—economically, socially, civilizationally—and viciously target Hindus even more than it has done before.

There is only one choice in this election for Hindus and indeed for all Indians who care about India. Set your doubts aside and go out and vote.… I'd say in the list of achievements:

1. Article 370 repeal
2. Bifurcation of J&K
3. Ram Mandir (though I give only partial credit to them, but they created the "mahaul for SC judgment.)
4. Start on Indian languages in Higher Ed
5. IKS initiative

I asked @google Gemini an identical question about 3 different religions.

"What are the problems with x (religion)"

Check its answers.

In the case of Islam, it found the question itself problematic and refused to list any problems. Image In case of Hinduism, it goes on to list specific things after a generic disclaimer.

Apparently, while Gemini has no problems listing "caste system" and "gender inequality" among problems of Hinduism, it does not dare to list even "gender inequality" as a problem with Islam. Image

When M K Gandhi died, Congress slaughtered Brahmins in Maharashtra in community revenge.

When Indira Gandhi died Congress slaughtered Sikhs in Delhi in community revenge.

It's always taken two eyes for an eye. Now it preaches with an eye to a vote bank. Congress is the mother of rioting and collective punishment in India.

After a legacy of communal riots, it is now into engineering anti-caste riots like it did in Haryana.

What are the actual causes of the Israel-Palestinian Conflict and why do Muslims worldwide rally to the Palestinian cause?

Often there is a lot of obfuscation around this topic, but the clearest exposition of the Islamic position comes from the Charter of Hamas. A thread 1/n Image One of the features of the Left apologetics for Islamic movements is to secularize them to to assign to them causes and aims that are at variants with their own clear objectives.

As #JihadCoolies, the Left obfuscates goals of Hamas to make it more palatable to a wider audience. Image

Savitribai Phule is a recent 'discovery.' She was created as a propaganda icon in the 1980s, there is negligible references to her before that in books/academic papers.

She was created to support missionary propaganda of "bringing Jesus" and "emancipating Dalits." See spike. Image In 1981 in Lok Sabha issues is raised to make a documentary on "great revolutionary" Phule. (Parliamentary Debates, House of the People, 1981 <- where can we find who this is).

At the same time "Savitrabai Phule Foster Parent Scheme" is started in Maharashtra. Who orchestrated? Image

So, I dug into the Press Freedom Index by RSF.

1. The Index comprises of two parts:
a. A quantitative score based on various incidents against journalists
2. A qualitative score based on a survey and 'opinions' of 'specialists.'

Both are flawed. Why? 1/n… Image 1. See formula for abuses score. It will be higher (better) if x is lower. (x=0, 100 is perfect score, no abuse).

Now x is calculated by summing the product of the number of instance of abuse (xᵢ) weighted by the kind of abuse (kᵢ), divided by the log of the population.… Image

History’s parallel experiments. North Korea vs South, East Germany vs West. People voted with their feet to escape communist hell.

Similarly Pakistan vs India is a parallel experiment. Does democracy thrive with a Muslim-majority or a Hindu one?… In all these cases, the people had a similar origin, culture and history: with one difference. It’s as good a scientific test in the real word one gets.

The results:
Communism fails.
Islam fails.

People want freedom over totalitarianism. When will our ‘comrades’ learn?

The tragedy of Indian progressives.

For whom getting drunk and doing drugs has been 'progressive' and 'revolutionary.'… Yes, just like drugs and alcohol, being on psychiatric medicine has been made cool, being trans has been made cool.

But ultimately these ‘progressives’ serve capitalism. Lots of money to be made peddling these ideas.

Have you seen how Disney now simps for China in practically all Marvel series.

This is part of China’s power play and influence on Hollywood.

As China rises it also understands the need to control worldwide perception. Uses hard and soft power.… We have the chips.

But we have neither the vision nor the spine to control the narrative.

If IAS officers are required to learn the language of the state where they are posted, why isn't judiciary?

It's a travesty that Bihar High Court does not allow Hindi in Patna because milords can't stoop to learn it. Can these lords ever provide justice to the common people? Does the Court exist for the convenience of the judges or for the convenience of the people? Time of lords is over.

They either learn the language or get interpreters for themselves at State expense. Not force people to speak in the lord's language.…

Interesting. I knew we were ahead, but not by that much. For all the mental bots touting divorce as "progressive" they should read the science sometimes.

“children with divorced parents continued to score significantly lower on measures of academic achievement, conduct, psychological adjustment, self-concept, and social relations.”……

In colonial intellectual discourse in the absence of "rule of law" there is "jungle raj." What's the worldview behind this?

In Christianity, man's natural state is of a sinner. Nature is to be subjugated. Nature consists of "base passions" that are evil.… "God" gave commandments to fix man. In the natural state, man is a beast.

This is the worldview of Abrahamism. Their "god" is separate from nature, which is beastly.

"God's commandments" then get secularized to "rule of law" to keep the "jungle" (aka the natural state) away.

They used the dead body of a girl and made her name as an international "cause" to target Dogras of Jammu in a fake case.

They paraded fake people as her parents on media. #Mufti sent a prior convicted police guy from Kashmir into Jammu to fake it—they don't want the truth out. The fake case had already fallen apart when the boy accused by the police was miles away in a different city, recorded by ATM camera.

The "evidence" against the others was equally a sham. The judge is currently under a corruption investigation.

#DegreeDikhao is stupidity.

Most Indian degrees BA/MA are worthless. They teach nothing, one learns nothing. What useful things has a BA in Political Science or an MA in Sociology learnt that will help them in their life? If anything it can create more deracination and dumbness.

Absolutely, the biggest axis of discrimination in India is English discrimination.

It is official structural discrimination that is enforced by the colonial state from top down.

It translates into societal discrimination where people are judged on spoken English "accent." While you will find thousands of books and research papers on "caste discrimination" guess how many of these Indian academics study English-based discrimination which is the biggest axis of discrimination in India today?

I could hardly find any while writing my book. Guess why?

The “Phule bought education” story is a lie just like “lower caste women in Kerala couldn’t cover their breasts and had to pay breast tax.”

These lies are deliberately created and spread for the conversion agenda. Yes, this is fiction. "Upper caste women", even queens, did not cover their breasts.

When colonized Indian men started forcing women in Kerala to cover up, the women protested this is a *restriction.* Later the story was turned on its head.

Can anyone explain why a "secular" state funds Muslim clerics?

There is no secularism like this anywhere else in the world. Hindus have been made a fool of in India. The answer is simple. India is a religious apartheid state.

Indian “secularism” exists to serve #ChristoIslamic propagation.…
