Sort of like making Sachin Tendulkar the team captain and expecting him to carry the entire team. We need a Ganguly, followed by a Dhoni, Kohli and so on.


Agree with that, strong state leadership is what has defined BJP over the years and that has to continue. Over dependence on Modi and shah will cost then dear in the long term.

Also it'll help to get the economy back on track and put more competent minister in charge of the same. Right, it just seems like the party is going off track a little bit. The prime agenda always has to be economic development.

That's what wins or loses elections in this day she age.

This has been a regular trend. It is Malayali Muslims who specialise in this. In fact it is actually an eye opener for non-Muslims working in Islamic countries on how precarious their position. This gentleman is at least a doctor, he will get a decent job in India itself. But most often the victims are not so rich Hindus, who go to the Gelf to eke out a living.

Picklu wrote:Btw, there's video floating around on the SM of the empty seats in Modi rally today.

Such videos cannot be believed 100%. As the joke goes; Malayalam media channels actually wait for Modi to leave after making his speech. And then take photographs of empty chairs, because people would also have started leaving 8). This propoganda of Modi losing charm, BJP losing cadre etc. have all been even dished out in the past. It happened when De.Mo happened, it was said when BJP lost some state elections, Thugbandhan formation etc. Also the problems of NRC in Assam; chances of that affecting the BJP voter base in Delhi area (where the last rally was held) is very less. I can agree if the rally happened in Assam, and the attendance for Modi's rally was poor.

I think they tried all that. Indira Jaisingh was summarily dismissed by Supreme Court judges. And for other cases (against the police etc.) they were asked to approach High Courts. And even from there, I don't think they got a sympathetic ear. Looks like the "civil society" gang has sensed the mood of the judiciary and now don't want to try that route.

Yes, this is the need of the hour. In which ever states BJP generally takes the back seat, the state level leadership is mediocre to poor. KL is the prime example for that. And BJP increasing its vote share/being the single largest party also means that more and more people are now getting swayed by its ideology. More "secularism" from the rest of the parties is only going to push them more to the right side.

As I and many other have noticed, the India Today channel is at the forefront of propaganda against the Modi/BJP government.

https://twitter.com/iMac_too/status/1208796645942411265
iMac_too @iMac_too

Archbishop @Aroonpurie's Pakistan Today channel is now defending Pakistan's extermination of minorities record. Do we even need external enemies?Image
https://twitter.com/iMac_too/status/1208798036765208577
iMac_too @iMac_too

Haramis of Purie channel made a "fact check" program on Shah's interview to their channel. Shah referred to pop of non-muslims at the time of partition. Purie jehadis took Pak '51 census figures. That's 4 yrs after partition & exodus of minorities
This is how you fudge by comparing apples and oranges where the individual facts may not be lies.

AND BJP leaders including AS grace their platform where BJP doesn't even get a fair shake! The latest letter to the employees on fairness was just a ploy to deflect criticism.

How our intellectuals end up justifying violence against minorities in our neighborhood to protect the "hurt feelings" of Indian Muslims. The brazenness of these so called "liberal/progressive" is simply mind numbing.

https://twitter.com/MaliniP/status/1208797642987192322
Malini Parthasarathy @MaliniP

That makes it clearer that India shouldn't succumb to a short-sighted temptation to become a haven for non-Muslim applicants from neighbouring nations,on the ground of "persecution".This move amounts to sheer provocation & insulting of our neighbours in the region! @KanchanGupta
To them, it is acceptable to get the minorities slaughtered, raped and converted than "hurt the feelings" of Indian Muslims. There is no other good reason but to "prevent" official recognition of "religious prosecution of Hindus at the hands of Muslims" in our neighborhood lest it it hurt the feeling of Indian Muslims and destroy the "fake" sickular narrative built over the last 70+ years.

I guess you have no idea what religious persecution means. What it means to see your daughter abducted, your wife raped, your property looted, your temple desecrated, your near and dear ones murdered. If you are contesting this reality, read @fispahani's book. G'night.

I am not asking for "pro-indic" context just "fair and balanced" content.

e.g. Just reported the facts in this case. They were of course free to editorialize that pre-partion numbers were "unfair" comparisons. That would have been fair and balanced EVEN when the channel itself disagreed with Shah's comparison.

Stone laid in 2013, just boundary walls come up at country’s first
varsity


It is just the boundary walls that have been constructed of the Indian National Defence University (INDU), a first-of-its-kind in the country, even as it has been six years since the then Prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh laid the foundation stone of the institution at Binola village in Gurgaon district.

The central government had approved setting up of the university at the village in May 2010 and the stone-laying ceremony was held in May 2013, nearly a year after 205 acre land was acquired for the purpose.

The university will offer courses in defence studies, defence management, defence science and technology with an active participation of personnel of army, paramilitary and central armed police force forces and civil servants, etc.

Binola sarpanch Samay Nehra said the construction work of the main building is yet to start. “We have approached the district administration and political leaders to get the construction work resumed, but to no avail. Only five to seven army officials visit the site every Sunday with two security guards looking after the area,” he added.

Pro-Indic == Fair and balanced

Actually 'Fair and balanced' and is a misnomer in Journalism. Most of the popular platforms have inbuilt bias towards left and Islamists and only an outright pro-indic media would be Fair and balanced. There is hardly any reporting or journalists as 'Fair and balanced'. In this age of instance gratification and results, Most of the media is more interested in going with the popular narrative.

If a media platform wants to call out the sheer fraud and disingenuity of current MSM, It has to lean towards Saffron shade to balance out the bias.

Bingo vikas ji, other side has "propaganda" channels, we just need a channel that tells the truth, BJP could have helped opindia etc. Even in states where BJP is weak but is ripe, you got people like Maridhas Madhan in TN who are swimming against the tide but also face assault (verbal so far) from other parties. It may have won 303, but actually BJP had the potential to win lot more in only they worried about information warfare.

During 2019 parliamentary elections, most voters in #Jharkhand told me they would vote FOR @narendramodi but AGAINST @dasraghubar in the assembly elections. No one was happy with his govt. If @BJP4India makes it today, it will be only because of PM Modi’s campaign in the state.

The trend was clear from a while back but Modi/BJP still chose to back a CM who was very unpopular amongst the masses.
https://twitter.com/deepak_kumar94/stat ... 8976345088
Deepak Kumar @deepak_kumar94

The problem with BJP is that they get too complacent, similar to what happened in Rajasthan. They don't understand the mood of the public in the state. BJP needs massive changes at state level leadership or else they will keep losing states.
If a particular leader is disliked or not preferred by the locals in the state, they shouldn't continue with that person for election and must bring a new and better face. We heard Modi Tujhse Bair Nahi Vasundra Teri Khair Nahi in Rajasthan
It is NOT complacency but something else. Either Modi thinks he has identified the idea leader and needs to back the person for the long-term or he is too invested/adamant to admit mistakes.

BJP going without allies is resulting in falling short of majority by 4-5 seats in many states. BJP is not accepting demand from allies to allocate more seats to them. If JMSA had 20 seats and the alliance was in place, then BJP would have won Jharkhand easily. AS is not so naive as to not realise this. So I can only think of one thing. BJP wants to create maximum number of MLAs even at the risk of falling short of majority, to boost their numbers in RS. If so, what is cooking?

Pankajs ji, 'Fair and Balanced' is subjective. I am sure those at the helm in Quint, wire and even NDTV think of themselves as absolutely 'Fair and Balanced' as key task of Journalism is to criticize Govt of the day. But that fake balance has resulted in bias towards BIF forces is out in open.
I recently saw articles on the wretched family conditions of rapists of Nirbhaya and how they are left to fend for themselves because govt is bent upon hanging the culprits. Not a word on rape and brutal murder of the poor girl. In theory, Journalist just reported a statement of fact but it had inbuilt bias towards showing a heartless & cold govt.

IMO, Pro-Indic just means not to become a tool of BIF forces. It does not mean becoming Pro-govt for sure.

Currently India's TFR is 2.18 and projected to fall to 2.1 by 2021. The number of children being born in India peaked a decade ago. The challenge is not population growth. The challenge is not missing the demographic dividend bus in the 3 decade window before population decline begins.

It could also be that BJP wants to have unstable governments in these states, with the responsibility of keeping the government be the responsibility of "seculars". BJP seems to be taking a clear stance that it is not going to tolerate bullying. Many unstable governments with a central government also breathing down their necks to implement certain orders, and the BJP in opposition to put a fire below the b*ms of the government in the state. When BJP remains the single largest party it is also giving a message that it is still a unified force rather then khichdi coalitions who are there for a short term need.

I think everything can not be dumped at BJP's door otherwise we fall in the vicious cycle of mai-baap sarkaar once again.

Quint, Wire and even NDTV's fair and balanced approach is only between parties which it likes. It can take such a stance if there is an idelogical debate between the Congress and the commies. But BJP or any of the majority religion pasand parties are not even political parties for them. They are like untouchables. Add to this the leadership (!?) of these main stream yellow journals who have been seeing the "seculars" ruling/destroying the nation for last 30-40 years. They now cannot accept any other party with a different outlook.

And the icing on the cake would be the finacial interests of all these media houses. None of them survive by subscription money. A classic case was that of media coverage during the Sabari Mala issue in year 2018-2019. Even neutral news papers (who talk about their history from pre-Independence days) was showing a very vengeful/hateful reporting of the whole issue. And this was a news paper which was started by Hindus only. Now there are rumours that business houses from minority communities (at least one) is having the media outlet by their bal$$ because they decide the advertisements. So under the old history of "fair play & neutrality" the news outlet is actually baying for the blood of Hindus. And it was in Sabari Mala case also that a very pro-BJP channel Janam TV actually took up excellent reporting. In this issue they created such a brand name for them that many Hindus stopped watching any other channels. Even in the recent case of Malayali journalists (!?) getting detained by Mangalore police, Janam TV reported all the details including names and the media outlet details. The other media groups and journalists tried to show them as "traitors" (to the Malayali jouranlist cause). So we can also understand the sense of justice & fair play these yellow magazine peddlers actually have.

In Germany, there is ostensibly no discrimination to granting refugee status based on religion. However, in practice it is different: https://www.theatlantic.com/internation ... el/504092/
From 2016:
Throughout Germany, the pews of churches like theirs are filled increasingly by asylum-seekers. Though two umbrella church organizations told me that they couldn’t provide exact statistics or comment on the nationality of the asylum-seekers attending church, Christoph Heil, a spokesman for the Protestant Church of Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia—which includes 1,300 parishes—confirmed the pattern. “Normally we don’t count the number of asylum-seekers who are baptized because we don’t differentiate between who is an asylum-seeker and who isn’t, but [asylum-seekers asking to be baptized] appears to be a new trend,” he said.


Iranians seeking refugee status must prove that if they are sent home, they stand the risk of being persecuted for their beliefs. In Iran, that often means Christian converts.

Similarly UK and US in practice discriminate by religion in granting asylum status, though their laws are ostensibly secular. (UKstan discriminates against Syrian Christians in favor of Syrian Muslims.) IMO, Modi and Amit Shah could have had CAA talk merely about persecuted religious minorities in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, and be ostensibly secular. But of course CAA was about sending a signal to their base.

Item 18 would have been neuj in 1990. Maybe they mean supersonic-combustion ramjets on the Akash, taking it to hyberjonic ishbeed?

But I came here to post something else which one should read to connect to the Pro-(minority)Democracy Bissful Protestors

How interesting a PC-twist from ABCneuj! Next time there is a riot in Los Angeles after a white polis is acquitted for beating/ shooting a black motorist to death, the mandatory TV-set and i-phone logistics out of Korean-owned stores, that follow such events will be blamed on Criminal Gangs, unrelated to the Peaceful Protestors?
Meanwhile, UBCN reports from Teregaand, Madhya Pradesh:

For over 24 hours now, the so-called anti-CAA riots organized by foreign entities in league with the Indian Con Party, appear to have stopped. The western propaganda outlets such as abc and cnn, as well as the ISIS-sponsored Al Jazeera, Pakistan-owned BBC, and the Saudi-owned New York Times, have gone into Editorial mode. UBCN sleuths attribute this drying-up of violence to the success of the law-enforcement agencies in tracking down the funding sources.

Once again, UBCN has to quote from RT.com for truth

‘Avoid rumors & know the truth’: India’s ruling party kick-starts social media campaign to calm Muslims over citizenship act
23 Dec, 2019 07:07 / Updated 2 hours ago

Prime Minister Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has launched an awareness-raising campaign on social media to quell misperceptions about the hotly-debated citizenship act that critics say discriminates against Muslims.

The outreach effort, which started this weekend, aims to engage Indian Muslim communities by informing them about the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has already made an appeal through Twitter “to our Muslim brothers and sisters to first understand the CAA itself and then explain it to others.” Responsible citizens should “avoid rumors and know the truth,” they urged.

The campaign involves easy-to-understand videos and cartoons that feature Muslim characters, “answers basic questions on the issue and also aims to dispel the doubts on CAA and NRC that it is in any way against the Indian Muslim citizens,” as a senior BJP official told the media.

Earlier, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a similar appeal to the nation, saying that the backlash against the CAA have been “incited” by political parties “spreading rumors” about the legislation.


BJP

@BJP4India

देश के सभी मुसलमान भाई-बहनों से अपील है कि पहले खुद नागरिकता संशोधन अधिनियम को समझें और फिर दूसरों को भी समझाएं।

नहीं तो झूठ और भ्रम फैलाने वाले राजनीतिक दल अपने वोट बैंक के स्वार्थ के लिए हमें आपस में यूँ ही लड़ाते रहेंगे।

अफवाहों से बचें और सच जानें...

Adopted earlier this month, the CAA offers fast-track citizenship to persecuted minorities from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh.The legislation sparked violent rallies across India.

But Modi maintains it is only aimed at protecting vulnerable people and reflects "a culture of compassion."

Aside from that, the government plans to publish the National Register of Citizens, that it says will reveal illegal immigrants on Indian soil. Meanwhile, some Muslim terrorists fear that they could be made stateless if they don't have the necessary documents, something the government denies.

“I kicked the Gods’ heads and it made me so happy”: Christian pastor who claims to have created hundreds of ‘Christ villages’
https://www.opindia.com/2019/12/i-kicke ... -villages/
Praveen Chakravarthy conducts his conversion activities through Sylom Pastors League, which is headed by him. LifePoint Church’s Missions Ministry, a US based Christian missionary organisation, list the Sylom Pastors League as their partner in India. They mention that Praveen is very active in church planting, disciple-making, and he had helped thousands of people in receiving fresh drinking water and also receiving Christ as their Lord and Savior.

As we have reported at OpIndia, Christian missionaries wish to convert the entire world to Christianity. Christianity considers Pagans Gods and Goddesses, including the Gods and Goddesses of Hinduism, as false gods and demons. It also considers idol worshippers as devil worshippers. Therefore, Christian missionaries seek to eradicate Hinduism from the face of the Earth.

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena back to doing what they do best :

Shiv Sena workers thrash man, tonsure his head for derogatory comment against Uddhav Thackeray
The person, identified as Hiramani Tiwari, had posted a derogatory comment against Uddhav Thackeray on December 20 when the Maharashtra chief minister had spoken against police action in Jamia Millia Islamia in Delhi comparing it to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

arshyam wrote:Actually, the Nazis used an old Germanic symbol, called the hooked cross (Hakenkreuz), which sort of looks like an angled Swastika. This symbol was a Christian symbol and had nothing to do with us. But the common perception has been built that they adapted the Swastika for their ends, and now we get to bear the cross of Nazi hatred (pun not intended). It's become so accepted that a simple search for Hakenkreuz on big G points only to Swastika. G translation service does even better - entering "Hakenkreuz" in German results in Swastika in English.

Thanks to JEM saar for mentioning this in his article that he linked above; reading that reminded me to come back and post this. I had earlier read about this in an article by True Indology published on Swarajya (Hitler Never Used Swastika: Evangelical Defamation Of Hindu Symbol)


Hmm ok, will look that up. I'm still inclined to believe what I originally said, but open to change my mind upon further reading.

Now that I think about it - what the CAA protestors are in effect saying is this (forget the fact that most of them are clueless about what they are protesting about) -

Muslims should not be excluded from the CAA. Why?

Because Muslims are also persecuted in Muslim lands.

So Muslims are not safe in Muslim majority lands.

And the only way they can be safe is in Hindu majority India. In effect, the only place any minority can be safe, is in a Hindu majority rashtra.

WELL!!! Sounds like a massive self goal.
