Technically #CAA doesn't hurt #Muslims. But trailed by NRC/NPR & preceded by gruesome exclusion of 15+ , won't it be suspected?
IS JUDICIARY ON LEAVE?
Art 370, Kashmir Silenced, CAB, Citizen Gag, NRC, NPR, Economy in doldrums, UP siege, cops gone berserk...
The costliest blunder of India and Pakistan:
MUTUAL SUSPICION AND HATRED
INDIA OF #TAGORE's DREAMS
where the Mind would be without Fear and the Head held High... now appears a mere illusion. What a fall!
If #Faiz's "Hum " is unacceptable due to its metaphor, "Saare Jahan se .." deserves banning due to its authorship.
Reading poetry requires brains and a minimum sensitivity
Terrible that those who are judging Faiz lack both gruesomely.
America killed top Iranian general. When that breeds Islamic terrorism, you blame me! Isn't Trump a Technological Terrorist?
20 ago had employed a Pakistani immigrant, B*M*, in my company. Today I'll have to prove my citizenship.
Times Do Change.
#Democracy serves as the demagogue's passport to dictatorship by pandering to the basest instincts of unthinking voters
RELIGION, NATION, SEX:
3 chief motivations of modern man; 3 most lethal tools of cruelty - depending on who uses them & why
WHY THE 3 KHANS ARE SILENT?
1.Personal Insecurity. 2.Fear of losing big bucks.
3.Perhaps also Producers' Contract silencing them.
WHY DID MUSLIM LEAGUE WANT INDIA'S PARTITION?
I am not a historian. But the oft-repeated accusation that perhaps ML was dominated by the / landlords, has some substance in it.
Now that Nityananda, , Asharam are out of the race...guess who wins the race for:
- most followers
- most powerful followers
- and the largest largesse
Sadguru, Ramdev, Ravi Shankar
#Dissent and inquiry are integral to learning, and indeed democracy. But they must be expressed non-violently, and with civility.
Gratifying to see a community that usually took to streets for banning books and cartoons, protest denial of constitutional rights
6 years of NDA work did not enhance #Muslims' patriotism as much as 6 weeks of #Hindu solidarity on CAA/NRC/NPR
Ironic that you adore Indians who surrender their #citizenship for that of developed countries, & condemn those that claim theirs
My leadership ought to be measured not only by the number of people supporting or opposing me but also by their social standing - and by the gravity of the grievances of my opponents
I wish our youth to see that politics gets dirty when leaders invoke religion in public sphere, & commit themselves to abjuring it
I HAVE NEVER BEEN IMPRESSED BY THE #LIONS MORE THAN BY THE DISDAIN THEY SHOWED TO CARS AND HUMANS INSIDE THEM IN THIS VIDEO
,NRC protests can only win by incorporating, not alienating people. Fight govt, not public.
India has over 30 million #dogs & 20,000 people die every year of rabies, - almost 35% of global victims
Much pain of the
Thinking and the Sensitive emerges from not factoring in the stupidity and unfairness of the #human species
LAW AND LAWLESSNESS
Is a law passed by a brute majority in violation of the governing constitution and the larger standards of human rights, valid legislation, and binding on the minority?
Can the parliaments of Sri Lanka or Pakistan, by overwhelming votes, declare their Hindus as non-citizens?
Majoritarianism is no more regarded as democracy by the civilized world.
#CAA must be examined from the perception of India's affected minority, if we wish to keep pace with civilizational advancement.
PRAY, SOMEONE TELL US THE TRUTH.
People: strive to know. Let Truth come out and spread
THANK YOU, PAKISTAN
For once Pakistan has really helped Indian Muslims.
they acted to restore 400+ temples, then they reached out to the Committee where some mischief had happened.
But by far their biggest contribution to our cause for CAA was by NOT POKING THEIR NOSE into our internal affairs.
Sonam Wangchuk: In a follow people. They listen if enough people say something
Live simply - so others may simply live!
#GANDHI KILLED OVER AGAIN
The goriness of this extremely vulgar video is deeply disturbing.
I am a Gandhian by some measure, and in some respects. And I perceive this video as a bullet shot in my own heart.
I reproduce this with utmost pain only so as to add some more pressure on the establishment to apprehend each one of these culprits and to mete out to them such exemplary punishment as Gandhi would not allow us to do. [That is one area we must differ with him.]
From a distance how easy it is to detect misuse of power, divisiveness, falsehood... #Impeach-POTUS-Trump
Sad that India's relations dry with progressive Turkey, #Malaysia & BD even as they improve with the fundamentalist Middle East
Oratory and Demagogy ought to be differentiated.
Shashi Tharoor may be cited as an example in oratory.
THE CAA DESTRUCTION
1. The Government notifies CAA that is perceived by Muslims as communal
2. Muslims - with secular Hindus - oppose Government of India
3. BJP fights back, converting this into a Hindu-Muslim issue.
4. Effectively now it pits Indians against fellow Indians
It is possible that uneducated and suspicious Muslims are misunderstanding the intent of CAA. But surely US, UN, and EU legislators are more educated and well-informed.
Why is so much of the enlightened and informed world also questioning it?
Worrying for Hindus is not the politicians' sole obligation. I worry for them inside Pak, , BD & everywhere else, & so I condemn #CAA
NOT JUST #CAA
BUT PROPERTY, BANKING...
DISCRIMINATION against #MUSLIMS from , Pak, BD goes way beyond CAA & sweeps across Property ownership, Bank accounts, Visa overstay et al
ABSOLUTELY DISCRIMINATORY AND MANIFESTLY ANTI-MUSLIM.
Who can doubt these, now?
SET OUT TO DIVIDE
THEY SEEM TO HAVE ENDED UP
HINDUS AND MUSLIMS.
If even now someone asks in good English "Why, why are Muslims protesting?" Ignore him: he is either stupid or a bigot!
DELHI DEMOCRACY INDEX
If AAP emphatically sweeps Delhi elections it will indicate that good work pays and also that polarization did not work for BJP.
On the other hand, if BJP substantially damages AAP, it would indicate that our democracy is far from matured and that hate pays richly.
Recently the tragedy of Kashmir Pandits was much in news. Since some of my finest friends are KP, I am home to this tragedy that claimed about 300 Pandits.
But many of the new generation have no idea that a large number of Muslims were mercilessly massacred in this state half a century ago. Their wounds remained unhealed. Indeed, successive dispensations only heaped increasing suffering upon this community that chose to repose faith in India - in preference to Pakistan.
And do remember that BJP was not in power those decades.
Any idea why
Detention on 30th Jan was almost completely ignored by the media?
Agitated at your cowardly silence? Relax - you have august company: Media, Politicians, Industrialists, Celebrities, Professionals
TRUMP IS LIKELY TO BE ACQUITED.
