India has just 5.75% of global Twitter users but the country accounts for 55% of all anti-Muslim tweets, according to a recent report entitled "Islamophobia in the Digital Age" published by the Islamic Council of Victoria (ICV). It also found that the US, the UK, and India contributed a staggering 86% of anti-Muslim content on Twitter during a three-year period. It should be noted that both the US and the UK have a sizable Indian diaspora infected by hateful Hindutva ideology.

Individuals and organizations connected to the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) are active users of social media. They are working to promote India's divisive Islamophobic politics among the Non Resident Indians (NRIs) and their children. Hundreds of the RSS shakhas (branches) are now found in at least 39 countries around the world. Hindutva is a Hindu supremacist ideology inspired by 20th century Fascism and Nazism in Europe; it is very different from the ancient Hindu faith, according to American history professor Audrey Truschke who teaches Indian history at Rutgers University in the US state of New Jersey. Top Indian economists have raised alarm about it.
India has only 23 million Twitter users, 5.75% of 400 million Twitter users worldwide, but Indians generate more than half of all Islamophobic tweets in the world. Numbers published in Twitter’s advertising resources indicate that Twitter had 3.40 million users in Pakistan in early 2022. ICV counted 15,766 Islamophobic tweets geolocated to Pakistan in a three year period.
Executives at Meta, the parent company of Facebook, recently told human rights groups that they wouldn’t release the full India Hate Speech study for their own security. An earlier 2020 company study concluded that Hindutva groups support violence against Muslims and Christians & should be banned from the platform, according to the Wall Street Journal. Here's an excerpt of the Wall Street Journal story:
"Meta has for years faced criticism from rights groups and has been probed by authorities regarding the presence of hate speech on its platforms in India, where more than 300 million people use Facebook and more than 400 million are on its WhatsApp messaging service. Meta has said it invests significantly in technology to find hate speech across languages in India. In 2020, Meta’s safety team concluded that a Hindu nationalist organization in India supported violence against minorities and likely qualified as an organization that should be banned from Facebook, the Journal reported that year. Facebook didn’t remove the group following internal security-team warnings that doing so might endanger both its business prospects and staff in India".

We have same issue every where in the world. Yes India May recent issues but look at our country and how they have issues against anyone that is not a Sunni. We don’t talk about our issues and see other country. Just fix our house and others issue will take care of we stand for something good
Mansoor: "We have same issue every where in the world. Yes India May recent issues but look at our country and how they have issues against anyone that is not a Sunni. We don’t talk about our issues and see other country. Just fix our house and others issue will take care of we stand for something good"
I agree with you that we in Pakistan need to do a much better job of protecting ALL of the citizens regardless of faith or sect or caste.
But I disagree with your assertion to "Just fix our house and others issue will take care of we stand for something good"
Hindutva is a fascist ideology that threatens ALL of us, regardless of faith or nationality.
False narrative of victimhood underlies Hindutva ideology. Indian historian Aditya Mukherjee characterizes the Hindutva victimhood as follows: “The great achievements of the past are then contrasted with a false sense of victimhood, the concept of a great threat the majority is supposedly facing from the minority. This is how fascism works, globally". "Hindutva was never meant to be understood as bounded by national borders; his (Savarkar's) ambition was always planetary", writes Vinayak Chaturvedi, author of "Hindutva and Violence". "He (Savarkar) gained notoriety for his programme to “Hinduise Politics and Militarise Hindudom” while also arguing for permanent war against Christians and Muslims", Chaturvedi adds.
Recent hate incidents in Leicester (UK), Edison (NJ) and Silicon Valley (California) all have connections to the far right Hindu organizations in India. Here's how a recent New York Times report "Tensions That Roiled English City Have Roots in India" explains what is going on with the Indian diaspora since Prime Minister Narendra Modi rose to power in India:
"Across the Indian diaspora, ugly divisions are emerging. A bulldozer, which has become a symbol of oppression against India’s Muslim minority, was rolled down a street in a New Jersey town during a parade this summer, offending many people. Last year, attacks on Sikh men in Australia were linked to extremist nationalist ideology. In April, Canadian academics told CBC News that they faced death threats over their criticism of growing Hindu nationalism and violence against minorities in India. Since India’s independence struggle, Hindu nationalists have espoused a vision that places Hindu culture and religious worship at the center of Indian identity. That view, once fringe, was made mainstream when Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party came to power".
India vs. US total population ratio is about 4.3. In comparison, the anti-Muslim tweets' ratio between India and the US is merely 3.0. That puts the US at the top of the Muslim haters.
If you compare Canada to India, the situation is even worse. India vs. Canada population ratio is 37. The Muslim-haters' ratio between the two counties is roughly 4. So Canada should be the top-most hater.
Shams: "India vs. US total population ratio is about 4.3. In comparison, the anti-Muslim tweets' ratio between India and the US is merely 3.0. That puts the US at the top of the Muslim haters"
India has 9 times the number of Islamophobic tweets compared to the US. Here’s how:
The US has 3 times the number of active Twitter users and one-third the number of Islamophobic tweets compared to India.
Also, don’t forget the US and Canada have a sizable Indian diaspora infected by the Hindutva bug. At least some of the US & Canada Islamophobic tweets could be attributed to it.
Read my original post again for data.
To some extent I agree but Sir majority of the Americans are open minded and they don’t have problems with other nations and those who follow any other religion , and I think majority of the people in America and UK who comment against Muslims and Islam are Indians since their are many Indians living in America and UK .
If Pakistan has the same issues as India then why US Human Rights Commission has shown concern over the growing violence against religious minorities of India since BJP came into government ? How many times has US Human Rights Commission shown concern over any kind of issues which religious minorities face in Pakistan ?
Also pls kindly check on Google and see , you will find tones of articles written about violances and attacks which religious minorities face in India . How many such articles have you seen being written regarding the issues which religious minorities face in Pakistan ?
Why is it that when it comes to India , suddenly some Pakistanis start showing soft corner to these Indians and try to generalise the issues of both countries ?
Sir have you personally been to India ?
Sir do you know that not only Muslims but even Christians in India are not safe .
Many years ago , I saw a documentary video which clearly showed violence which Christian’s face in India . Their is a state in India called “ORISSA” where according to my limited knowledge , mostly Christian’s live . In this state ,extremist Hindu groups and mobs of RSS , Bajran Dal and Shev Sina party roam around on the streets in the state of Orissa and attack Christian’s where ever they find them . They bring pastors out of the churches and beat pastors on the streets with sticks , they even misbehave with nuns of the Churches .
Have you seen or heard such cases ever happening in Pakistan ?
Can you show me which political or religious party in Pakistan has such kind of mindset and goes out on the street and attacks religious minorities ?
Another important question , If India is really and truely a democratic country then why does their authority allows these extremist Hindus to roam on the streets and attack religious minorities ?
I hope this helps ,
Their is a link on internet which shows a world map and it shows different countries in it , each country is marked with level of intolerance . It is surprising to know that both India and Pakistan being neighbouring countries , have much difference . According to to that map , India has least level of tolerance and Pakistan just like western countries has highest level of tolerance . And pls note that this map was not prepared or designed by a Pakistani but by a western .
How about the Canada / India ratio?
Shams: "How about the Canada / India ratio?"
Canada has about 8 million active Twitter users....one-third of India's.
So India has 3 times the Twitter users and 24 times the Islamophobic tweets compared to Canada....a ratio of 8X.
I bet a lot of Canadian Islamophobic tweets are posted by the sizeable Indian diaspora in Canada.
India has no equal in the world when it comes to Islamophobia.
This is the TRUE DNA of HINDOOS AND INDIA.IT WAS LATENT AND DORMANT, FOR 1000 YEARS,AND NOW HAS GROWN EXPOXENTIALLY WITH TECNOLOGY
THE WEASEL "INDIAN" MUSLIMS STILL HAVE FAITH ON THE CON-INSTITUTION,AND THE DUBIOUS INDIAN JUDICIARY ! dindooohindoo
Justice B N Srikrishna, former judge of the Supreme Court, has expressed concern on the current situation, saying “today, things are very bad” and “I must confess, if I were to stand in a public square and say I don’t like the face of the Prime Minister, somebody might raid me, arrest me, throw me in jail without giving me any reason”.
THIS IS THE STATE OF AFFAORS,EXPRESSED BY A EX-SC JUDGE:
SPREADING LIES AND CALUMNY BY CHAIWALA AND HIS RABID DOGS EXTENDS TO THE SUPREME COURT - USING THE IB
In November 2016, the apex court collegium comprising of erstwhile CJI Dipak Misra, Justice J Chelameswar and Justice Ranjan Gogoi, while rejecting an IB report and recommending the names of three of the four advocates for the appointment as judges of the Jharkhand High Court said, "As regards comments of Intelligence Bureau about professional competence...we are of the view that professional competence can best be determined by the members of the higher judiciary who have the opportunity to observe his performance on a daily basis.”
The Collegium further questioning the integrity of the IB report added, "In our view, it would not be appropriate to take cognisance of any unsubstantiated information based on discreet inquiries made by the Intelligence Bureau.”
The state of affairs in India,is such that, a hindoo conclave of religious leaders,called for a "genocide of muslims",in India
In the same conclave held in the 3rd week of December,2021,a Hindoo Godman, praised the Killer of Gandhi,and also abused Gandhi
In the same conclave,another Godman claimed that,he would have killed Manmohan Singh in Parliament,when Manmohan Singh,was the PM of India
In one of the videos from the event, which circulated later on social media, Dharamdas Maharaj, a seer from Patna, targeted former PM Manmohan Singh, saying “I wish I was an MP there holding a revolver; I would have become Nathuram Godse and pumped all the six bullets into him inside Parliament."
And this is a lamp post,of the Hindoo media,an Editor,who says that he will do all it takes, including kill Muslims,or anyone else, to make a Hindoo state
These comments,in truth and reality, reflect the sentiments,of the Hindoo masses,and have the blessings of the Ruling Polity of India,BUT THE INDIAN MUSLIMS STILL HAVE FAITH ON THE "CONSTITUTION" AND THE DUBIOUS INDIAN JUDICIARY
Chaiwalas Brigands have reduced Indian Muslims to being cobblers,meat sellers,shop keepers, leather traders and small time farmers.The Indian Muslims is happy in that rat hole- and his prayers and fasting - as he believes that he is being TESTED by the divine. ILLUSIONS OF SELF PITY AND WALLOWING IN THE IMPOTENCE OF INACTION IS A PERPETUAL GEOMETRIC PROGRESSION FOR THESE WEASELS
THE WAY CHAIWALA SEES IT IS THAT - THE INDIAN MUSLIMS - EARN AND TRADE IN THE INFORMAL ECONOMY - AND THUS,HAVE NIL CONTRIBUTION TO THE EXCHEQUER, AND ARE A BURDEN ON INFRA AND SUBSIDES AND RESOURCES.SO HE JUST WANTS THE INDIAN MUSLIMS TO DIE
THEORETICALLY,WHAT IS THE BARE MINIMUM,FOR THE INDIAN MUSLIMS TO EXIT,THIS HELL HOLE OF HINDOOSTHAN ? IT IS MODERN EDUCATION FOR THE MASSES,SO THAT THEY HAVE GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT AND ENTERPRISE.THIS REQUIRES BILLIONS OF USD - WHICH THE CHAIWALA DOES NOT HAVE,AND WILL NOT SPEND.
EVEN IF CHAIWALA IS KILLED - AND THERE IS A EDUCATION BOOST, BY A NEW GOVTT - THE 200 MILLION "EDUCATED AND SKILLED" MUSLIMS WILL COMPETE WITH OBC/C/ST/HINDOOS FOR JOBS/LOANS/ SUBSIDIES/CONTRACTS AND BUSINESS - WHICH WILL CREATE MORE SOCIAL STRIFE/RIOTS AND TENSION. THERE IS ALSO A RISK,THAT THESE 200 MILLION "EDUCATED AND SKILLED" MUSLIMS WILL ATTAIN NIRVANA,AND CREATE THEIR OWN POLITICAL FORMATION - AND RUIN THE BASE OF THE ANTI-CHAIWALA COALITION,OR WORSE, BOOST THE VOTES OF THE CHAIWALA COALITION
HENCE, NO GOVTT WILL AID, THE INDIAN MUSLIMS.
THUS,THE SOLUTION FOR THE "INDIAN" MUSLIMS = PARTITION ! A BASIC THING THAT THESE WEASEL FOOLS DO NOT UNDERSTAND ! THE ROLE MODEL IS NOT THE GULF - WHICH HAD OIL AND GAS OR TURKEY WHICH HAD THE OTTOMAN WEALTH/INFRA/ADMIN/CULTURE/INSTITUTIONS.
THE ROLE MODEL = PAKISTAN ! WHICH WAS CREATED WITH NIL RESOURCES -JUST THE WILL AND TALENT OF 100 MILLION ! dindooohindoo
OF WHAT USE IS PRAYERS AND FASTS, IF THE SUBCONSCIOUS DOES NOT SPEAK TO THE "INDIAN MUSLIM" ON WHERE THEIR SALVATION LIES. HENCE,THEY DESERVE TO BE,IN THE SHIT HOLE OF HINDOOSTHAN !
INDIAN MUSLIMS HAVE TO HEAR THE MESSAGE FROM THE SKIES ABOUT BHARAT AND VANDE MATRAM
THIS IS THE VANDE BHARAT EXPRESS - DAY 1 - WAS HIT BY 4 BUFFALOS WHO BROKE ITS NOSE !
THIS IS THE VANDE BHARAT EXPRESS - DAY 1 - WAS HIT BY A COW !
THIS IS THE VANDE BHARAT EXPRESS - DAY 3 - WHEELS JAMMED AND BEARINGS BROKE !
THE HINDOO VANDE BHARAT IS DOOMED LIKE "BHARAT" AND HINDOOSTHAN.MUSLIMS HAVE TO MAKE THEIR OWN TRAIN AND TRACKS ! FROM GAU MUTRAM TO VANDE MUTRAM TO VANDE BHARAT
THE DESTINY OF BHARAT IS WITH COWS,BUFFALOS,COW DUNG AND COW URINE ! INDIAN MUSLIMS HAVE TO WAKE UP !
NO DONKEYS RAM INTO TRAINS OR CARS ! Y ONLY GAU MATA ? COZ DONKEYS HAVE BRAINS - AND THAT IS Y DONKEY WERE USED BY RAVANA,TO STEER HIS SPACE SHIP (AS PER RAMAYAAN) AND RAMA WAS EATING BANANAS WITH MONKEYS
Book III : Aranya Kanda – The Forest Trek
Chapter [Sarga] 49
स च मायामयो दिव्यः खर युक्तः खर स्वनः |
प्रत्यदृश्यत हेमांगो रावणस्य महारथः || ३-४९-१९
Then the miracle-air-chariot of Ravana which is miraculously designed to appear and disappear at the wish of its master, yoked with miraculous mules, and built with its golden wheels and parts, appeared afore Ravana braying noisily. [3-49-19]
IT IS A PLANE STEERED BY MULES – YES !
MULES= DONKEYS ! NOT HORSES !
RAVANA REALISED THE WORTH OF THE DONKEY VS THE COW AND ALSO RAMA ! BUT THE HINDOOS PRAY TO RAMA AND THE COW !
VANDE = 1 DAY (BUT NOT IN THIS CENTURY) MUSLIMS MAY GET SOME RIGHTS IN HINDOOSTHAN - UNTIL THAT DAY - ARE INDIAN MUSLIMS WILLING TO DRINK VANDE MUTRAM ?
IN THESE TIMES - LET US REMEMBER THE GENIUS OF JINNAH
JINNAH DEALT WITH NEHRU AND GANDHI WHO WERE A FLEETING APPARITION AND ILLUSION ! HE KNEW THAT THEE MEN WILL DIE SOON AND THE HINDOO FRANKENSTEIN WILL RISE ! HE SAW THRU THE ILLUSION - THE MIRAGE !
BUT THE BIG PICTURE ! WHAT TRIGGERED THIS NATURAL LIGHT OF CLEAR INTUITION, IN JINNAH, VIA HIS SUBCONSCIOUS ? HE WAS A FREE THINKING INTELLECTUAL - IN ACTIONS AND THOUGHT ! WINE/ WOMEN/CIGARS/PROHIBITED MEATS !
MUSLIMS CAN LIVE WITH JEWS/CHRISTIANS/BOODHEESTS.... AS THESE ARE WELL ROUNDED PHILOSOPHIES (BESIDES THE TRINITY AND MAN-GOD). BUDDHISM IS THE PHILOSOPHY OF SEEING THROUGH ILLUSIONS AND MATERIAL DESIRES.THE PATH OF ISLAM (AND JUDAISM( AND ITS AUSTERITIES/PENALTIES AND REPEATED PRAYERS AND FASTS AND ABLUTIONS ETC.,ARE ALL A TOOL TO DRILL INTO THE BRAIN,THE NEED TO STEER AWAY FROM ILLUSIONS AND MATERIAL DESIRES,AND THUS,IBLIS
HINDOOISM IS A SATANIC,PRIMITIVE BARBARIC FAITH,TO WHICH HINDOOS STILL CLING ! NO PROPHET WAS SENT TO THESE CRETINS ! Y ? OVER 5000 YEARS, NO REFORM, NO EVOLUTION NO CHANGE -- ONLY REVOLUTIONS AROUND SATAN ! ALL THE SO CALLED REFORM OF THE BHAKTI CULT,RAM MOHAN ROY..... IS ALL BUNK ! HINDOOS ARE STILL IN THE SAME SHIT HOLE AS THEY WERE 10000 YEARS AGO ! THEY STILL BELIEVE THE LIES AND NONSENSE,OF THEIR SCRIPTURES !
THE MORE OUTRAGEOUS THE LIES AND RITUALS - THE MORE DEVOUT THE HINDOO ! THIS IS THE TRAIT OF MOLOCH AND NIMROD !
STAGNATION IS THE CURSE OF SATAN (SATAN FISSIONS IN STAGNANT WATER AND LIQUIDS) - WHICH IS MANIFEST IN HINDOO THOUGHT AND MORES- AND THIS IS WHAT JINNAH SAW, IN THE MIRROR OF PATEL ! PATEL EXPOSED THE TRUTH OF HINDOOS,TO JINNAH !
JINNAH GOT SALVATION FOR MUSLIMS BUT NOT FOR HIMSELF - AS HE WAS POISONED BY THE HINDOOS !
WHICH IS Y I SAY - NEVER EAT OR DRINK FROM THE HAND OF A HINDOO OR AN INDIAN (IRRESPECTIVE OF FAITH).
BUT THE INDIAN MUSLIMS ARE STILL IN THE BLACK HOLE OF HINDOOISM WITH NO LIGHT ! Y ? THEY ARE DALIT CONVERTS,AND THEIR LEADERS,ARE BRAHMIN CONVERTS - WHO ARE BOUGHT OUT BY THE HINDOO POLITY.THAT SAME SLAVE DNA,IS STILL RESIDENT !
THE DNA OF SATAN !
THAT IS THE CORE OF THE PROBLEM ! THAT IS Y THESE WEASELS,WILL NEVER DO A TAHRIR, OR CREATE A PAKISTAN ! THEY WILL SELF FLAGELLATE TO THEIR DESTRUCTION ! JUST LIKE THE HAPLESS AND PATHETIC DALITS
Dear Indian Hindu, including the silent well meaning, you are as complicit in the genocidal hate against Muslims in India coz you see it every single day and yet you do NOTHING. You see your best friends, your neighbours who are muslims being dehumanised and yet you remain quiet
To the world that continues to give Narendra Modi a free pass. Indian foreign minister
says that the western press is out to discredit Modi. In the last two days in India, there have been calls for economic boycott & genocide of Muslims by government lawmakers.
THERE IS 1 MORE PANWARI BANIA - VERMA BANIA,WHO HAS GIVEN A CLARION CALL,TO BOYCOTT MUSLIMS
HE IS A BJP PANWARI BANIA !
WHAT TO DO WITH THESE PANWARI BANIAS ?
WHICH IS Y I SAY THAT IN MUSLIM DOMINATED AREAS LIKE IN KERALA ETC - MUSLIMS HAVE TO FORM A "ISLAMIC SUPPLY CHAIN" FROM KERALA TO SAUDIA - KEEPING OUT HINDOOS/NASSARA AND GOI - BASICALLY EXIT THE GOI AND STATE GOVTT FISCAL STRUCTURE,AND KICK OUT THE KAFFIRS AND NASSARA.FROM THE PROFIT OF THE SUPPLY CHAIN, A ZAKAT CAN GO TO CHARITY,AND A CESS TO ENTITIES LIKE,PFI AND ISLAMIC BANKING
ISLAMIC SUPPLY CHAIN
TAKE A CASE OF MAN-WIFE AND 2 KIDS - ALL THE FOOD,CLOTHES,TRAVEL,FUEL,GAS - FROM THE UREA IN THE RICE AND/OR THE TRADER,WHO SELLS THE FUEL OR RICE OR UREA,SHOULD BE MUSLIM AND WITH MUSLIM EMPLOYEES "ONLY" (IRRESPECTIVE OF COST - THEN IN PHASE 2,ONCE SCALE IS ACHIEVED, THEN LOOK FOR COST EFFICIENCIES - TO DRIVE DOWN COSTS)
THEN - EXIT THE BANKS - BANK ONLY WITH ISLAMIC BANKS.EVEN OVERSEAS REMITTANCES ARE TO BE MADE, ONLY VIA ISLAMIC BANKS
ISLAMIC BANKS + SCHOOLS + NGO + SME + AGRI + COMMERCE = QUASI STATE,WHICH WILL ALSO GAINFULLY EMPLOY MILLIONS,TO ADMINISTER AND GOVERN - TO KEEP MUSLIMS,GAINFULLY EMPLOYED
EVEN POWER PLANTS CAN RUN ON ISLAMIC PRINCIPLES WITH PROFIT SHARING LOANS FROM ISLAMIC BANKS TO LOWER TARRIFF (AS THERE IS NO TAX AND INTEREST) AND FREE POWER TO POOR AND MICRO ENTERPRISES
WHAT YOU CANNOT BUY FROM MUSLIMS - U IMPORT AND BYPASS CUSTOMS.KERALA AND TAMIL NADU PORTS, ARE NOTORIOUS,FOR DUTY EVASION,AND GOLD SMUGGLING
GOI AND HINDOOS GIVE NOTHING TO MUSLIMS,AND MUSLIMS SHOULD RECIPROCATE
ONCE THIS MODEL CLICKS - THEY CAN FORM ISLAMIC POLITICAL PARTIES. ISLAMIC INVESTMENT WILL POUR IN AND ONCE MUSLIMS CAN RUN A QUASI STATE - THEY CAN DO A REFERENDUM TO SECEDE,IN ALL SEA FACING INDIAN AREAS (WHERE THERE IS A SEA - THERE IS A POTENTIAL PORT)
BEFORE THAT KERALA AND OTHERS CAN ADOPT THE SAUDI RIYAL OR SOME DINAR AS THEIR CURRENCY
1ST FACE THE PERILS OF ECONOMIC COMMERCIAL JEHAD,AS A PRECURSOR TO "REAL JEHAD" !dindooohindooo
In the map, why are so many islamophobic tweets coming from Pakistan. Is there a large hindutva diaspora in Pakistan as well?
Anon: "In the map, why are so many islamophobic tweets coming from Pakistan. Is there a large hindutva diaspora in Pakistan as well?"
15,766 Islamophobic tweets from Pakistan represent just 0.99% of 1.58 million global Islamophobic tweets analyzed by ICV. Compare that with 55% from India, 18% from US and 12.4% from UK.
Hindutva and the shared scripts of the global right
The forum on “Hindutva and the shared scripts of the global right,” curated by Supriya Gandhi (Yale University) and edited by Mona Oraby (TIF editor and Howard University), examines the rise of far-right movements and actors through a global lens with Hindutva and the Hindu right at the center of this inquiry. As Gandhi states in her introductory essay to the forum, “these movements do not exist in silos but, rather, frequently feed into each other.” On the other hand, Gandhi also makes clear that differences between emerging forms of authoritarianism are significant to scholarly and public debate on this topic, suggesting that “the questions and problems examined here include asking how supremacist projects, such as Hindutva and white nationalism, may reinforce each other even as they also diverge.” The contributors to this forum urge scholars and the public to consider how far-right movements are born in local environs but also converge into a global phenomenon.
Dr. Audrey Truschke
Like white nationalism, Dr. Gandhi points out, Hindutva crosses borders. The gravest consequences are in India, and she highlights here Hindutva persecution of Muslims, environmental degradation, and more.
Dr. Audrey Truschke
In introducing a series of essays, Dr. Gandhi argues for identifying convergences and divergences between "supremacist projects, such as Hindutva and white nationalism."
Contributors to this forum will write on Turkey, Brazil, and other sites of authoritarian projects.
Dr. Audrey Truschke
One really important point that Dr. Gandhi makes is positing the analytical place of Hindutva in understanding other supremacist movements --
"Hindutva holds up a multifaceted mirror reflecting the complex web of connections between the global right." #Hindutva
I don’t understand one thing since last many years I have seen Indians coming to news pages of Pakistan on Facebook and on YouTube channels of Pakistan and they insult Pakistanis by saying that Pakistan is a begger country .
Can you pls tell me how should we respond to these Indians ?
Can you pls throw light on this and can you pls explain in detail which country is the biggest reciever of financial aid from developed countries specially from world world bank and IMF ?
Trading Scotch for migrants: India takes offence
Post-Brexit, one of the big prizes in UK trade talks would be a deal with India, and Scotch whisky could benefit most. A deal has been getting close.
It is now in doubt because of comments by new Home Secretary Suella Braverman. Saying that Indians are over-staying their work permits strikes at the biggest gain that Delhi wants to see, and has caused offence.
Suella Braverman, (is the) newly installed as home secretary. In charge of immigration policy, she told The Spectator magazine that she is concerned about Indians who come to the UK to work and then fail to return when their visas run out. She said Indian nationals are the most numerous offenders.
"I have concerns about having an open borders migration policy with India because I don't think that's what people voted for with Brexit… The largest group of people who overstay are Indian migrants. We even reached an agreement with the Indian government last year to encourage and facilitate better cooperation in this regard. It has not necessarily worked very well."
The comments have gone down very badly in India. The country's press is expressing its indignation that the home secretary should insult Indians that way.
If Muslims had something remotely similar to ADL in USA for Jews, then Meta would go bankrupt in a few days by paying settlement to Muslims in India and Myanmar for the crime of hosting genocidal contents.
Thank you for sharing this , but as far as I know even most of the tweets messages against Islam and Muslims which is coming out from America are either written by Indians or by Isrealis .
Violent ethnic clashes in Leicester last year were stoked by Modi's Hindu nationalist party | Daily Mail Online
Ethnic community tensions on Britain's streets have been stoked by Indian political activists linked to Narendra Modi and his ruling Hindu nationalist party, UK security sources say.
The Mail on Sunday can reveal that elements close to Indian prime minister Mr Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are suspected of having incited British Hindus to confront Muslim youths in last summer's explosive riots in Leicester.
A UK security source said there was evidence of BJP-linked activists using closed WhatsApp groups to encourage Hindu protesters to take to the streets.
But the source warned that this was only the 'most egregious' example of Indian Hindu nationalists using private social media posts to interfere in the UK.
He warned: 'So far, it's mainly local politics - Modi and his BJP doing that they would do in Gujarat [Mr Modi's home state] to get this or that local councillor elected.
But it has to be stopped before it spreads to attempts to influence our national politics.'
The claims are likely to provoke a diplomatic storm between London and New Delhi at a time when Prime Minister Rishi Sunak – himself a practising Hindu - is trying to seal a lucrative post-Brexit trade deal with India.
Last summer's ethnic disturbances in Leicester followed months of simmering tensions between newly-arrived Hindu immigrants and the city's settled Muslim residents, tarnishing its reputation as a beacon of racial harmony in Britain.
Violent clashes broke out between Hindu and Muslim youths after an India-Pakistan cricket match in late August, grabbing international media attention, particularly in India where it was spun as Muslims attacking Hindu residents.
This newspaper was told that India-based BJP activists then started to issue messages and memes which were widely circulated within WhatsApp groups among Hindus in Leicester.
Since the India-Pakistan cricket match on August 28, there were several nights of protests in Leicester until September 22, with marauding youths marching on the streets shouting 'Jai Shri Ram,' [Victory to Lord Ram], which has become the rallying cry of the BJP in India.
There were reports of attacks on Muslims and their homes, as well as attacks and vandalism against Hindu temples and homes.
The security source said the alleged interference appeared to be part of Mr Modi's desire to pose as the leader of Hindus across the world.
After last year's riots, several studies were done in examining the role of social media in stoking up the Leicester disturbances.
Think tank the Institute for Strategic Dialogue published a study showing, as the clashes broke out in Leicester, the Indian media depicted the trouble as Hindus coming under attacks from Muslims, with the violence blamed on 'Pakistani organised gangs.'
On Twitter, a new hashtag emerged, #HindusUnderAttackInUK, which was a variant on the well-known BJP mantra, #HindusUnderAttack.
The report also mentioned that, within days of the cricket match fallout, pro-BJP activists and influencers framed the clashes as Hindus being the sole victims.
Separately, a report conducted by the US-based Network Contagion Research Institute also showed evidence of so-called bot-farms operating out of India, which were retweeting messages on the Leicester disturbances on an industrial scale.
Charlotte Littlewood, an expert at the Henry Jackson Society think tank which investigated the riots, said that the disturbances begun as a result of tensions between newly-arrived Hindu youths from India and the more settled Muslim community.
Ms Littlewood said that, although the reasons for the clashes were local, when they hit the international media, foreign pro-BJP elements began escalating the tensions for their own ends.
