THIS is how it should be .. Don't ask for trial. Ask for them to be handed over. Not that it will be achieved but it will shut up the busy bodies that try preaching India.

Reading various analyses from left to right, it seems to me that SS BJP break up is final and irrevocable. And also, short of a BJP surrender at the feet of UT, looks like SS had made up its mind to break away fearing dominance of BJP in Maharsharta and that under Gujarati tutelage. What does this say about Hindu unity? So there was a larger gameplan. But on the whole, I feel its better for BJP and better for Hinduthva than to have those thugs as allies however "Hindu" they may have been. Unbelievable how those SS chutiyas can sleep at night for falling at the feet of Sonia Gandhi whose slaves called Hindus as terrorists not too long ago.

That said, what disappoints me is that I see no discontent among the rank and file of the SS. I thought by this time there would have been some churn at the grass roots level. But I don't see much. So unless there is something going on behind the scenes, from all accounts I see Maharashtra gone from BJP's kitty and you will see a bunch of traitors and thugs in power. Also, I am not sure I agree that the alliance will not last. Simply because Congoons' real fight is with BJP and to that extent they need an important state like Maharashtra to re-build. So they won't rock SS beyond a certain point. And the SS clowns will be happy with ceremonial CM post.

If you look at the state-wide map, its a far cry from pre-Dec 2018. Large swathes of saffron have been captured by enemies of Hinduthva. BJP has its work cut out.

they do not know Congis are anti-Hindus.
NCP and Congis have widespread patronage schemes - sugarcane mills, Co-op banks, schools, hospitals.
anyone benefiting from these schemes will tend to vote accordingly.

Hindus couldn't comprehend the anti-Hindu nature of Gandhi and Nehru too. When Aurobindo Ghosh saw the blind workshop by Hindus of these two worthies, he said: "Hindus have lost the capacity to think." A race that cannot identify its enemies despite being stabbed again and again is heading for the Darwin Award.

For centuries, Hindus lived barely to survive another day. Modern day Khiljis are angels in comparison. It would take another generation before Anti-Hindus are identified and shunned.
Moreover outside the Jingo-ecosystem, Not many understand the subtleness and reach and financial power of BIF forces. Moeover foot soldiers of Con-pasand parties aren't anti-Hindu.

State elections are not fought on Hindu - Anti-Hindu issues except in rare cases. Also it is increasingly evident from plenty of recent state elections that voters make a distinctions between who they want at the center vs who they want in the state. They seem to ignore local disagreements, problems with candidate selection, anti-incumbency etc. when voting in LS elections but all of it comes front and center in state elections. RJ, MP, CG and now MH have all shown this.

In MH there were mistakes made, like bringing in NCP rebels which ticked off BJP members who stood as independent candidates etc. plus the power of Pawar and co.'s patronage networks showing itself again (people completely ignored this for LS elections since it did not matter). So it is not a simple case of Hindus voting for anti-Hindus.

As for SS, one thing to remember is that they received a lot of votes from BJP supporters who thought they were giving Fadnavis a second term. They are all angry and will not vote for SS again. Hindutva was a tool that SS used just as they have used anti-outsider sentiment in the past. Shifting into the NCP/Cong camp means that SS will have to completely reinvent itself and appeal to people who were never SS voters traditionally. It is not going to be easy. And if they fight together with NCP in the next elections, the vote transfer is far from a done deal. On the other hand, there is no reason for NCP/Cong to fight with them together henceforth. They know BJP leaders and voters are both thoroughly disgusted with the SS and are surely not going to fight together. So why do they need SS to win? They don't. Cong/NCP combined votebank against BJP-SS split votebank is a no-contest. This is a one time thing. They will dump SS in a second once this government's term is over (if it lasts that long). SS simply does not have the means to achieve anything on their own anyway. They are finished one way or the other. Pawar will let them have their 15 minutes of fame since he needs them to grab power right now before pulling the rug from under their feet when the time is right.

If BJP gives Bharatratna to Savarkar, Maharashtra Congress will be in trouble. 1) Savarkar is a popular figure in Maharashtra 2) State Congress unit has never opposed Savarkar on ideological level 3)Congress govt has allotted a prime plot to Savarkar trust and helped them.

This would be too easy. I would suggest DF/BJP, as the opposition party, introduce a bill in the Maha assembly to recommend Bharat Ratna for Savarkar and let parties vote their preferences.

People are stretching this hindu-anti hindu argument. One must be careful in name calling, if you call them anti-hindu they’ll calm you internet-hindu. You call them sickular they’ll call you bhakt. This doesn’t advance anything but creates silos in the nation. We live in a country bound be a secular constitution and that is the end of it.

The fight should be against appeasement of one section of population at the cost of other, which is against the constitutional bounds of secularism.

Selection bias, perhaps? A lot of the sponge has not sprung back. Plenty of examples around depending on how far back you look (50 years, 500 years or 1000 years). Some of the sponge has been cut off and growing as its own entity, threatening the remaining sponge.

Is there any evidence of that? The voters of Maharashtra gave ~100 seats to NCP + Cong and another 50+ to SS. Then why would they be disgusted, should the three come together?

People voted for Shit Sena on 122 seats thinking that they are voting for BJP and Fadnavis. These people have been cheated by Sena.
Its not that BJP didn't know of Sena antics. They wanted to cut down Sena so they covertly supported BJP rebels against Sena candidates on lot of seats. Sena did the same too on some BJP seats. About 15 of the independents are ex-BJP that did not get a seat, fought independently and won against Sena. Some won against official BJP candidates too. So BJP has support of about 119-120 MLAs. They need 25-26 more and that's not a small number. That is the problem.

Because any political party has multiple identities. And clarity of thought is common on BRF but it is very rare among general public. NCP's first identity in MH is that of Maratha party, not anti-Hindu party even though that is true. Pawar's Maratha votebank has held even though DF managed the Maratha andolan well. And they gained in Vidarbha due to anti-incumbency and farmer's issues. Cong is still the default party for lot of Indians who have benefitted from Con in some way or the other over the last few decades. As an example - a local Con leader helped by father secure admission for me in primary school in Mumbai suburb decades ago. Just for that, he kept voting Con until 2009 when I convinced him to vote BJP.

^^ Strangely, this "multiple identities" thing does not work for Muslims and Christians, who will never vote for any pro-Hindu party come what may. I admire their clarity of thought (drilled into them by their clergy). This is where the garbled thinking of Hindus and their petty focus on narrow identities of caste and region (instead of the larger pan-India Hindu identity) benefits the Breaking India Forces.

The entire political ecosystem in India is built around pandering to these narrow identities of Hindus, which suits BIF just fine as it prevents the rise of national consciousness rooted in Hindu ethos which can swing elections.

The two biggest problems I see with Hindus are:
1. Petty focus on narrow identities of caste and region, and rejection of larger Hindu identity (eg. Tamils, Yadavs, etc.)
2. An inability to identify their enemies (because of which they keep choosing them as their rulers)

My brief summary of the political situation in MH. The divorce of BJP and SS was going to happen for several reasons sooner or later. 2 political parties with similar ideologies are competing in the same political space and friction was bound to happen as one tries to get the better of the other. The alliance on the ground is not working very well. In the 2019 LS election the alliance worked well as everyone was voting for Modi. Other factors didn't matter much. However, in the AE vote transfer between SS and BJP did not happen smoothly. In fact the data suggests that many votes were wasted as the INC-NCP did not gain much. An aggressive BJP trying to create political space for itself in MH has infact made SS very nervous as it feels it will come at the cost of the SS. The SS is an ambitious party and would like to grow by itself - maybe even pan-nationally. As such a divorce of BJP and SS is not bad for nationalist forces as they can separately take up both the ruling and opposition space in MH and setup a pan-India template. The NCP is a caste-based party with some additional support and what happens to it after SP dies remains to be seen. The INC has come fourth and is a declining force in MH with the likely scenario that like in many other parts of India it is going to become a Muslim party with additional minority and old Congress family votes. Therefore, the situation is rife for nationalist consolidation in MH. This is not unprecedented and has happened in WB where essentially 2 Hindu parties i.e. the BJP and TMC have taken up both the ruling and opposition spaces leaving very little opportunity for breaking India and anti-Hindu forces. Given the fact that WB and MH are the 2 hotbeds of modern Indian nationalism this scenario is in fact desirable. However, there are several problems with the SS move. Some of them are a) being hijacked by the INC-NCP into an ideological position that is contrarian to the SS worldview, b) poor record of the SS in governance in the past, c) being in alliance with 2 very corrupt parties and itself not blemish free, d) continuing being a family-led party and e) not negotiating from a position of strength. Ideally the SS should have broken off once the INC-NCP strength had further deteriorated. An alliance of SS-NCP-INC may turn out to be beneficial or suicidal for nationalist forces. The big question is did SS jump the gun and took a decision in haste.

Neha Joshi @The_NehaJoshi

I was thrilled to read that in the sample surveyed, 27 per cent of respondents support @BJP4India ,while @INCIndia is liked by 18 per cent. The study also notes age-wise preferences of political parties and notes that BJP is most-liked by younger women. https://theprint.in/india/which-is

Analysis: BJP's lead over CON amongst women is driven by younger women.
Conclusion: Good!

The core Hindu vote of the INC in WB has migrated to the TMC and the core Hindu vote of the Communists has migrated to the BJP. So yes the TMC is essentially a H party. The TMC did some M pandering to extricate the M vote from the CPIM. Now the M vote in WB is substantial and cannot be wished away. Things in WB will improve further once the NRC is carried out efficiently.

Lets not go by rumors ... lets wait for the CMP plus the issue BJP raises henceforth will also tell us about what was agreed but kept out of the CMP.

Btw, The BJP also went meekly along with MP and RAJ government when it could have tried to get in pole position like it did in KAR. Wonder why BJP left those states alone while putting so much effort in KAR? Do folks think game, for the full term, is over in MP and RAJ?

Thank you Sanju Ji.

There is this assumption among some of the pundits and BRF posters that any govt without BJP will fall due to inherent contradictions. If BJP and SS got into friction because they were chasing the same votebank, There is a chance that same friction will arise once SS and NCP start chasing the same Maratha votebank to expand.
My guess about SS is that if they can survive for next 5 years in power, They will have a chance to capture some of the Maratha vote bank that currently is owned by NCP making them atleast a genuine Pan-Maha Party. Right now they are considered as a party thriving mostly Mumbai and surroundings.
BJP seems to be too chilled out about what is happening. Seems to me that they still own the aces and are letting NCP and SS get entangled in the knots.
My hunch is that either the Governor may dissolve the assembly at the right moment recommending fresh elections right before UT bhau can stake claim to form the govt or someone will break away and support BJP within few months.

Ten women sent back by cops as Sabarimala temple reopens





Every year, a few young women from Andhra Pradesh have been coming to Pamba to trek to Sabarimala without knowing about the temple's age-old custom.

16th November 2019

SABARIMALA: A group of ten women who reached Pamba and planned to head to the Sabarimala temple were sent back by the police on Saturday, a short while before it reopened.

Police said the women hailing from Vijayawada reached Pamba along with a larger group of devotees. Sensing protests from other devotees, police briefed the women about the volatile law and order situation prevailing in Sabarimala.

"They immediately decided to stay back while male devotees in the group proceeded to the temple to offer prayers," said a senior police officer at Pamba.

Cops also checked the age proof of the women devotees in the group.

I think Modi/Shah got played by thugs of SS and NCP&CON MAFIA from the beginning. They planned it even before elections and after the elections. That's why scum sena started the demand as soon as elections started. The script was ready and as soon as verdict came in, plan was made operational. BJP had no clue. They were reacting to this scum sena's low life action and pawar's strategic game of silence. I hope they counter plan and destroy them like Bihar and also MP Govt. as revenge

If silence is the benchmark of strategy then BJP is the most silent party since the elections.

I don't think BJP was totally caught unaware of Sena's desire for the CM ship for itself. Infact, IIRC, during the initial days, DF did say Sena had made that demand before elections but no assurance was given. What BJP did miss was the desperation in the Sena to get its objective and the lengths it was willing to walk.

BJP's public reaction has been muted all through. Sena openly stated that they wanted Shah to visit Matoshree to discuss the government formation. Shah instead choose to give it a miss and pushed for talks via DF that Sena/UT took as an insult. Did Shah not know what he was doing or how Sena would read that?

There has been no visible firefighting at all and it is as if BJP gave up before the first ball was bowled. Why is that? My bet is Shah is playing this game his own way and is confident of his plans. What those plans are is beyond my comprehension but Modi/Shah do not take matters like this lightly.

There has been no visible firefighting at all and it is as if BJP gave up before the first ball was bowled. Why is that? My bet is Shah is playing this game his own way and is confident of his plans. What those plans are is beyond my comprehension but Modi/Shah do not take matters like this lightly.

I meant what beyond the simple Plan A, B, C or D?
A = BJP + Sena
B = BJP + Breakaways
C = BJP + NCP
D = Sena+NCP+CON for 6-12 months followed by fresh re-alignment (KAR Model) or elections.

Katare wrote:People are stretching this hindu-anti hindu argument. One must be careful in name calling, if you call them anti-hindu they’ll calm you internet-hindu. You call them sickular they’ll call you bhakt. This doesn’t advance anything but creates silos in the nation. We live in a country bound be a secular constitution and that is the end of it.

The fight should be against appeasement of one section of population at the cost of other, which is against the constitutional bounds of secularism.

According to you, "they" calling people "internet-Hindu" is only a retaliation, provoked by their being called "anti-Hindu?"

If those are the rules, what can Hindus, internet or otherwise, do, other than bow their head in shame for being Hindu, and remain subdued and silent, fearful of provoking or annoying "them", as they have done for centuries?

I don’t think any hindu has any reason to bow to anyone or allow anyone to define him/her.

Iranian tomatoes will begin entering market from today

QUETTA: Iranian tomatoes will begin entering the market from today and prices are expected to drop.

The government had granted permits to several companies in Quetta to import 4,500 tons of tomatoes from Iran. The Fruit and Vegetable Association confirmed the issuance of permit. But the traders said that since the tomatoes would come via the Afghanistan route, they would still cost them Rs200 per kg. A trader said: “The government should directly import tomatoes from Iran.” If tomatoes come directly from the Iran-Pakistan Taftan border, their price would be reduced to half, he added. “The fields of tomatoes and other vegetables in Sindh were destroyed due to rains,” said a trader.

No discussion in BRF about Sri Lankan election results? Rajapaksha brother returning to power is BAD news for us. Talking about which joker becomes CM of Maharashtra and for how long looks so irrelevant when we have the prospect of more Chinese SSBNs lurking in the IoR, surfacing in Hambanthota for R&R.

US emerges as safe soil for Khalistan forces



US emerges as safe soil for Khalistan forces

On 10 September, as part of the ISI’s renewed focus to internationalise ‘Kashmir-Khalistan’, a company—Kashmir Khalistan Referendum Front—was registered in Washington.


Questions are being raised in Indian intelligence circles why the US is ignoring anti-India activities.

New Delhi: A pro-Khalistan group that is funded by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is running a massive anti-India social media campaign while operating from the heart of the United States of America.

On 10 September, as part of the ISI’s renewed focus to internationalise “Kashmir-Khalistan”, a company—Kashmir Khalistan Referendum Front (KKRF)—was registered in Washington. The address of the company is ‘910, 17th street, N.W suite, Washington and the directors of the said company are Ghazala Khan, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun and Muhammad Yunus.

While not much is known about Ghazala Khan and Muhammad Yunus at this stage, Pannun was, and probably still is, associated with another US-based pro Khalistan group, “Sikhs for Justice (SFJ)”, which was in news for pushing “Sikh Referendum 2020’. The group has ignored any mention of the genocide of Sikhs in Punjab during 1946-48 and the steady fall in the number and influence of the Sikhs remaining in Pakistan. Their office-bearers are in frequent contact with Pakistani diplomats in New York, Chicago and Washington.

The Sunday Guardian has found that the KKRF is also running a massive social media campaign to instigate people in the name of “Greater Khalistan” for which it is operating a website, a Twitter profile, a Facebook page and an Instagram profile in the same name.

The said website was made operational in October, while the Facebook page became operational in July 2019.

Pannun, who was encouraged by the ISI to present himself as a “human-rights” lawyer to gain legitimacy in the western world, “runs” a law firm that claims to have two separate offices in California and New York. One of the registered office address of his law firm—75-20 Astoria Blvd Suite 170 Jackson Heights, New York—is also given on “yes2khalistanorg”, which, as then name suggests, is another prominent pro-Khalistan website that was registered in July 2010, but updated on 25 September 2019.

Pannun’s Twitter account was blocked in June 2019 after he was found to be using the said platform to instigate Sikh youths to take up arms for a separate Khalistan. Earlier, on 13 November 2015, the United States District Court of the Northern District of California had dismissed a case filed by Panun’s Sikhs for Justice’s (SFJ) against Facebook for allegedly blocking the group’s page from users in India.

With pro-Khalistan forces being allowed to run their anti-India campaign from US soil without any hindrance, questions are being raised in the Indian intelligence circles as to why the US government under President Donald Trump is ignoring such anti-India activities. “Why it is ignoring the glorification of terrorists and the incitement to violence in parts of India? Imagine such a secessionist anti-US agenda running from Indian soil—would the US government accept it?” a senior official in the Ministry of Home Affairs asked.

Shiv Sena's Hindutva not harmful, says Congress :rotfl:

That is what all right wing Hindutva folks have been saying from the beginning ... Hintutva is harmless. Sashi Tharoor, with his vocabulary, will be able to write a more forceful defense of Hindutva.
