CCP understands importance of narrative and psychological conditioning.

Today in India, go to any mall, major educational institution, you will find the hegemony of English and Roman Script. This conditions people's minds to accept its supremacy and inevitability. China gets it. It will soon be the only super power and the #1 economy. Only the foolish will not learn from what it is doing right.

Imagine if India did this. DBT to parents/schools for school of their choice.

As long as it is: 1. Mother tongue medium and 2. The State dismantles religious apartheid policies on who can run schools.

Will be a game-changer. India spends crores on Govt schools which provide sub-standard education with no accountability.

What if Govt took that money and gave that to parents as vouchers which could be used in any school. And set 3R educational standards for schools, gave autonomy otherwise.

Even “tribal” is a made up word of colonial academia. India has had a diversity of people with different customs. They were not classified as tribal/non-tribal prior to British times. Your ignorance won’t save you any more than “Jesus” will.

Patriarchy itself emerges as a result of male god Abrahamism which rejects nature and the feminine as sacred.

You mindlessly repeat dogmas stuffed into you. Luckily not all of the new generation is as dumb or asleep.

If India were a secular state, ex-Muslims would be safe, anyone could criticize any “prophet” and Hindu temples wouldn’t be taxed and schemes funded for non-Hindus.

But it isn’t secular. India is a de facto sharia state. Naturally. The Islamic Sharia State of India is obligated to aid in the demographic war of true believers.

This is why the age of marriage for kaffirs is raised to the highest in the world.

It's a pity that 8 years in, the BJP has only done cosmetic changes to NCERT textbooks, while the UPA created a series of anti-Hindu textbooks within a year of coming to power, completely replacing old ones. They understand the importance of narrative war.… The Left ecosystem will scream even about these minor changes causing the BJP to be apologetic and backtrack while the whole host of anti-Hindu content, which Neeraj Atri documents, remains unchanged.…

When will *you* reflect @AsimAli6?

Your spin belies that “respect for the other” is not a property of Abrahamic monotheisms. It can at best “tolerate” that which is considers evil.

Its fundamental error, root of genocides, is mapping “good” to belief in their god/prophet/book. This “every belief” theory is false. The particular beliefs of Christianity, Islam (and their dual communism) lead to mass genocide because they look on the “other” as evil. This is what led to Christian massacres of natives and Boko Haram masaacre in a Church *this week.*

The new @GarudaPrakashan book on Congress and Gandhi will show how Hume, who founded Congress, was in close coordination with British authorities,; the Viceroy was part of the plot.

The Congress was to "manage" Indians, not free them. And that's what they did. Rest is eyewash. Please follow @GarudaPrakashan for details. Should be out in the next 2-3 months, in editing right now.

Christians receive many benefits from US govt.
1. Tax-exempt Churches
2. Funding for "faith-based" Christian charities
3. Ability to run schools/colleges

Unlike in India, there is no discrimination as "religious majority."

Hindus in India are being scammed. @narendramodi India:
1. Confiscates Hindu temple income, doesn't allow freedom to manage
2. Gives special schemes for some religions like for Christians and Muslims
3. Pays salary to Muslim clerics, funds madrasas, AMU etc

All this would be *illegal* in the US.…

Can all those trending #ArrestNupurSharma explain why stating facts about the Prophet from standard Islamic sources and insult to him?

The Hadith blaspheme against the prophet? This is not rocket science to understand. Nor is it a "sanghi source" unless Sunnah is sanghi.

A most important thread.

Not a suit-boot sarkar. But an IAS/IFS sarkar. There is nothing more colonial. I've been hearing this a lot. How the complete surrender to bureaucracy by the govt has made business more difficult and corruption far worse.

Await our new book on how Gandhi’s Ahinsa delayed Freedom.

It suited the conquerors. That is why he got cushy “jails” like the Aga Khan Palace.

Follow @GarudaPrakashan Unfortunately e-Books get pirated very easily. It is a challenge to make this a commercially viable venture. But will take your feedback.

This is completely false, Raga must be reading American history.

States did not "come together." States were repeatedly reorganized after independence and have no fixed identity per se.

Bharat is a civilizational entity, 1000s of years old. The dangerous #pappu denies that. The Constitution itself says:

—(1) India, that is Bharat, shall be a Union of States.

"shall be", not "is."

In fact is reiterates that states can reorganized at will in Clause (3) right after.

Not what an entity which is a "negotiated union" of existing states can do.

Monotheism is a virus of the mind. They don’t actually. Those 3 billion are divided into monotheistic sects each of which think “their god” has a special message for them and the rest of the 3 billion are crazy.

So no.

It just means the infection has spread.

The judiciary of the colonial state largely works for the rich and powerful. By design.

The poor non-English speaking cannot even argue their case there. By design.

Places of Worship Act is another secular fraud upon Hindus. It must be repealed.

Seculars created initiatives for long-term impact even with few seats. UPA created toxic textbooks, changed NDA ones, within a year of coming to power with a slim majority.… Yes. UPA was toxically anti-Hindu.

Current Govt is better but still continues appeasement policies plus very little strategic long-term thinking on Hindu interests.

“Haven’t changed a line.” Proudly.

Good thread about the misunderstanding of "trayastrimsati koti" as "330 million gods." It's about 33 types.

It is also important to understand what "gods" means for us. "Devas" are the forces that govern us. For instance, we are governed by time and space and the 5 elements. These are essentially scientific ideas using a different terminology. Time is represented by the 12 months. These can, for instance, determine cultivation and even our moods. It is simple to understand "devas" as forces or energies that are all around us.

Many in North America now do a “land acknowledgment” before major events, that they are occupying native land.

Imagine if every mosque built on an indigenous temple in India would do that before daily prayers.

Would you support that to promote secularism @Javedakhtarjadu? The day that you start acknowledging in the misdeeds of your ancestors and of invaders is when you'll actually classify as a liberal @Javedakhtarjadu. Till then you're just a closet jihadi.

Lol. Try this exercise. Replace every occurence in your Holy Book where it references kaffirs, or polytheists, or unbeliever with the word "Muslim."

Let me know if that sounds like hate speech to you or not. Just try a few examples. You can start by explaining verse 98:6. Also how does it read when you substitute polytheists for Muslims?

Appeared briefly on Arnab's debate on sedition on
@republic. It's not the place for nuance, so here is the nuanced view.

1. We need to look at FOE in totality. Sedition law is one part of it. There are a lot of laws, not just 124A, that are of concern—153A, 505, 295A, 298... Many of these laws are used arbitrarily, give the state draconian power to arrest people, as we saw in the case of @TajinderBagga and many others. People can be arrested over an innocuous statement or SM post by police acting for vindictive politicians.

2. At the same time...

Bhagwa is the flag of India before it was "secularized" and an artificial ahistoric flag created.

That "secularization" did not stop inter-community strife, it increased it. The secular state of India increases religious conflict because it forces naturally plural India into the straightjacket of exclusive religions that needed the creation of secularism in Europe.
