Dipavali & firecrackers In this thread, I will debunk the MYTH that bursting firecrackers is a new innovation that was recently introduced into dīpāvali festivities. It will be shown that bursting firecrackers has always been intergral and central part of dīpāvali . [Thread]
"While the official report said that 375 Hindus were kiIIed in the firing" Where is this "official report"? Does it exist? Kindly show me this "official report".https://twitter.com/Jitsamin/status/1466964166942478338 …
During IPL, David Warner and Kane Williamson fasted with Rashid Khan on Day 1 of Ramadan Rashid’s pride in his traditions influenced and attracted them. I wish this kind of religious pride was also exhibited by Hindu Players on Hindu festivals. But then who would promote Halal?pic.twitter.com/lJ08CDlpbK
Indira was second to none in using Hindu religious imagery for elections. She arm-twisted EC for the cow & calf symbol, which was previously denied to political parties. She talked about cow in various rallies. But she was a beef eater in private. She relished beef on US tours.pic.twitter.com/CpRa8aiG8L
This is a breast ripper. It was used by Christian priests to rip out breasts of women accused of idolatry, witchcraft, heresy or blasphemy. This was used in Goa during the inquisition. Inquisition in Goa was started at the behest of Francis Xavier. Today, we celebrate this man https://twitter.com/MamataOfficial/status/1466640209307570179 …pic.twitter.com/QZ0fYeUvwj
Look at his TL. He is from Pakistan. He wants secularism in Indiahttps://twitter.com/ArbabBilalAhma4/status/1466729009501413378 …
There is nothing selective about it. Nizam kept thousands of Hindus as slaves. He used to force Hindu women to dance naked. Even his British allies called out his stark Apartheid. Collaborators & apologists of Nizam should acknowledge & apologise if they don't want to be hated.https://twitter.com/ArbabBilalAhma4/status/1466729009501413378 …
I am not a trad. I differ with the views of trads on a lot of political and cultural issues. That said, slinging the word "Trad" has now become akin to the slinging "Kafir" in some sections. Anyone not toeing their ideas is labelled a trad & that justifies every insult and abusepic.twitter.com/0ZXOO3zNlL

Congress propagandists even wrote a Sanskrit stotra named "Mohanāshtakam" in praise of Mohandas Gandhi. They claimed that chanting Mohanāshtakam would destroy all sins and eradicate all diseases https://sanskritdocuments.org/doc_z_misc_general/mohanAShTakam-gu.pdf …pic.twitter.com/n3md3teQwt
While top leaders of Congress talked of "Hindu Muslim unity" & kept themselves aloof from exclusively Hindu issues , many lower rung Congress leaders talked of "Hindu unity" and raised exclusively Hindu issues. Lower rung Congress leaders demanded blanket ban on cow slaughter.pic.twitter.com/bHDLfl8keN
While Gandhi was building a secular image for himself through appeasement politics, the lower rung of Congress leaders tried to project Gandhi as a Kattar Hindu. Congress propaganda machinery issued paintings depicting Gandhi as the incarnation of Shiva rescuing Bharat Mata.pic.twitter.com/imXa6H3xwm
During the days of freedom movement, many Hindus opposed the appeasement politics of Gandhi. However, they were asked to shut up in the name of "Hindu unity" and "National unity". More vocal critics were dismissed by Congress propaganda machinery as "British Trojan Horses".
Even today Many marriages happen at midnight in telangana .. most of muhurtam 3am onwards.
In English language, Brahma Muhurta (c. 4 AM) is not classified as "Dawn" or "Morning". It is classified as "night".https://twitter.com/madhavsharma08/status/1466623643786481669 …
As if they couldn't abduct at night! This is a total myth. Night weddings happen even in South India. In fact, some pre Islamic Hindu scriptures recommend such a Muhurta at night.https://twitter.com/TrulyMonica/status/1466347498448900103 …
The great Vijayanagara emperor Krishnadevaraya's wedding muhurta was at 3 AM. I am curious to know which Muslim invader, he feared, would abduct his bride? Some Pre-Islamic sources prescribe night wedding. Groom shows the stars Vasiṣṭha-Arundhati (Mizar-Alcor) to the bride.
Many Tamilians traditionally had Muhurta in the day because they followed Sauramana system. Many Telugus traditionally had Muhurta in the night because they followed Chandramana system. Either has nothing to do with "Islamic invasions". Our traditions are much older than that.
