Shocking!
BJP has not taken a decisive lead even in a single seat out of the 13 assembly segments that have faced elections today in Jharkhand, as per ground reports.

What is happening? Complacency? Wrong digital approach? Data gaps? Strategic errors?

This guy is rarely wrong. Very worrying state trends for BJP. It also shows that BJP itself has little appeal. Its Modi all the way.

RSS joint general secretary Dr Krishna Gopal at an event in Delhi yesterday: I can say with confidence that if Dara Shikoh had ruled India then Islam would have flourished in the country & Hindus would have also understood Islam better.


Is he regretting that Islam did not flourish in the country? Do Muslims leaders too wish for similar flourishing of Hinduism in Indian subcontinent?


Yes, I am confused by his statement too.
If DS had succeeded in creating a benign version of Islam, it would have been worse for core Hindus and conversions would have been more. The face that Islam and Hindu values are so orthogonal acted as a barrier to willing conversion, most conversion happened by force or by inducement.

Foolish to think that there will ever be benign version of converters. There always will be more exterme than before. Just the nature of their books and games. Drive the knife in and then pretend to be turning into benign to dilute your response and divert your mind. As soon as you do, they will drive the knife in further. Rinse and repeat.

No such thing as peaceful existence when their power centers aren't of Bharatiya in nature. These power centers could care less about the notion of God, Jesus, Allah, etc. To them they aren't anything but facial masks to be used to further their agendas.

Long before DS, Akbar tried similar syncretism with his Din-i Ilahi. "Liberal" Sufi Ahmad Sirhindi called it blasphemy to Islam with the result that it died a natural death. If a person like Akbar who was already an emperor could not make it successful, DS wouldn't have fared any better even if he had become a emperor.

Sikhism was supposed to be a another similar syncretism exercise to bring some kind of syncretic unity between Hindus and Muslims. It worked with Hindus and Hindus only. All the Sikh gurus, all or most of the original Sikh disciplines are all Hindus. There was never any significant Muslims who joined Sikhism willingly like Hindus and became Sikhs.

Shiridi Sai Baba is another example. He propounded "Eshwar Allah sab ek" . Hindus fell for it and became his disciples and built big big temples for him. But no significant amount of Muslims became his worshipers and worship him.


You are 400% correct.
Islam is an extremely well designed religion and Mo is the world's greatest marketer.
While us kafirs may complain about Islam, it has successfully come out of nowhere and looted the civilized world and now has become a victim with sections of the real victims defending them. Naziism is denounced around the world but Islam had worse criminal history and is behind held up as victims. It's like a Roach Motel, you can enter but you can never leave. No freedom, but it's adherents still espouse it. Even many women who are the worst affected fight for it. It is self-sustaining.

Yes. Someone local from region can mention what's the cause. Though I wouldn't be surprised if it's on similar lines as I have noticed in Gujarat. Grooming and selection of candidates has to start from the bottom up. All the way to the level of canvassing cadre to college student union leaders. Goons are winning out. Lot of this machinery is clueless about the fight and is of the same nature as INC. Now if I'm charged up Hindu voter, I would notice that the local BJP machinery knows less about Hinduism than I do and not any different than INC. One understands that there's need for muscle, street presence, and corruption in politics. However, it can't be in direct contact with your voters.

I have mentioned few things before about GJ area where there has been no movement by BJP to clean the house and it will bring them down in GJ itself within an election or two. It would have already happened if not for Modi/Shah pair faith. Improvements on simple everyday things are missing and ground level machinery's getting little too power drunk. Fallin asleep after winning a battle. All boils down to the machinery not knowing what's the whole fight is about.

Now I'm mostly ranting about GJ. Someone from the other states can chime in.

Added later:
Keeping bigger fight in the mind, lot of time I don't leave examples or leave them vague. The most recent one is from charotar in GJ where a power and liquor drunk BJP councilor cut down trees in a colony because of the belief that these trees caused allergy issues to his kid. Needless to say that now this perennial BJP votes can't be taken for granted now. Even open appeasing of minorities wouldn't have lost this votes but now they are gone.

OK, now I am beyond doubt, RSS is either bunch of xxxxx or traitors. These people must be cut to size for Indic way to survive, there are so many honorable people from TN such as Muthuramalinga Devar etc, who fought for same causes honestly, whom RSS could have used as a model. Instead, they chose a casteist, crass, misogynist, uncouth person, a man who abused hinduism to no end, called Indian independence a dark day, wanted to secede from India, married his own adopted daughter, said prices of clothes are going up because dalit women have started wearing blouse, man the list is very long.

All these recent RSS statements on Dara Shikoh and Periyar are geared towards either softening their image among Muslims and Periyarists/Dravidianists or trying to attract them towards their fold.Either of which in my opinion will fail. These people's raison d'etre is Hindu hatred. The more you appease them, the more they think they are winning and the more hatred/pressure they would put on Hindus.

Shiv Sena will not deviate from Hindutva, says Uddhav

- "I am still with the ideology of 'Hindutva' and won't ever leave it," the chief minister said

- Fadnavis had earlier taken a jibe at Uddhav, saying that the Shiv Sena has compromised with its ideology by joining hands with the NCP and Congress

- The Shiv Sena's Hindutva now rests at the feet of (Congress president) Sonia Gandhi, Fadnavis had said


MUMBAI: Even as the Shiv Sena formed the government in Maharashtra with ideologically different parties NCP and Congress, chief minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said that Hindutva idelogy is indispensable to Sena and the party will not leave it.

"I am still with the ideology of 'Hindutva' and won't ever leave it," the chief minister said during the state assembly session.

At a press conference earlier this week, former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had said that Shiv Sena compromised with its core ideology — Hindutva — by joining hands with the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party(NCP).

“The Shiv Sena's Hindutva now rests at the feet of (Congress president) Sonia Gandhi. Everyone is seeing this," Fadnavis had said.

Speaking after BJP's Devendra Fadnavis' election as the leader of opposition, Uddhav said he learnt lot of things from the former chief minister.

"I have learnt a lot of things from Devendra Fadvanis and I will always be friends with him. In the past five years, I have never betrayed the government."

Uddhav took a jibe at Fadnavis over the collapse of the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance after the former refused to accept Sena's demand for equal power-sharing in the new government.
"I am a lucky CM because those who opposed me are now with me and those who I was with are now on the opposite side. I am here with my luck and blessings of people. I have never told anyone that I will be coming here but I came," he said.

Continuing his tirade against the BJP, he said, "I won't call you (Devendra Fadnavis) an 'opposition leader', but I will call you a 'responsible leader'. If you would have been good to us then, all this (BJP-Shiv Sena split) would have not happened."

"very good & cultured daughter is missing"

In case of votebanks, the police becomes overloaded while the dominant (whichever in that region) only is able to enjoy social benefits ie criminals don't hit at any one from dominant mob. Indirectly police becomes subverted and, follows laws by letter ie disarming citizens except the mob that buys off resistance.

'There are over 16 crore Muslims, why are they scared, other minorities aren't,' asks RSS leader Krishna Gopal


Press Trust of India Sep 12, 2019 14:07:27 IST

Gopal said India never compromised on the principles of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (entire world is one family) and sarve bhavantu sukhinah (all should be happy) and wants that even Pakistan should prosper.

Referring to an article written by Islamic scholar Raamish Siddiqui that Muslims should not be afraid as they are more than 16 crore in the country, Gopal said "it is a big question" that why such a mindset exists.

"How many Parsis are in India... hardly 50 thousand, Jain 45 lakh and about 80 lakh Buddhists are there...Jews are only five thousand. They are not afraid of anyone.... Muslims are more than 16 crore then why are they afraid... Why and from whom? This is a big question that the community which ruled the country for 600 years is afraid... it should be discussed," he said, and suggested it could be due to a "divisive mindset" propagated by Mughal ruler Aurangzeb.

Gopal said all other minorities which are lesser in number compared to Muslims feel secure in India. Emphasising on inclusiveness as an essential part of Indian traditions, he said the people of this country want everyone to prosper.

"...daily something is going on with Pakistan and if someone gives a new mantra saying that except Pakistan all others should be happy. It is for sure that people of this country would not accept that thought. Why Pakistan should be unhappy... they should also be happy," he said.

The RSS leader was speaking at a conference on Mughal prince "Dara Shikoh — icon of composite culture". Describing Dara Shikoh as face of inclusiveness, Gopal said he was a true Muslim and translated Upnishads into Persian languages. He underlined that inclusiveness and unity have always been integral and essential part of Indian culture.

Many people from various countries and religions came to India and this country made them their own, he said. Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, who also addressed the conference, said Aurangzeb was a "symbol of terrorism", while his brother Dara Shikoh was the identity of nationalism.

"Violence and oppression committed by anarchist and cruel ruler like Aurangzeb was glorified by group of Islamic fanatics, Leftist and so-called secular historians," Naqvi said adding that Aurangzeb's philosophy was to destroy human values and India's 'Sanatan Sanskriti'. "This same thinking gave birth to terror organisations like Al Qaeda, ISIS, Jaish-e-Muhammad, Lashkar-e-Taiba etc," he said.

If these idiots have still not learnt the lesson about sucking upto muslims, then don't have any kind words for them. What's the saying, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

Folks, some of you are abusing the leeway shown by the forum in granting you a place, despite the risks, in discussing political issues.

First, I repeatedly see some of you using bad language and discussing in bad faith amongst each other, insulting each other in a manner which you would not, if you met face to face. This is nuts. Why use anonymity to take a hard-line position against somebody you'd probably get along with in real life, while vitiating the forum atmosphere?

Second, the forum is NOT a place to loudly proclaim religious superiority or decry religions/ faiths. If you have issues with aspects of any particular faith's adherents and you are able to discuss it in a nuanced manner, that is one thing. However, repeated references to how bad/good one is are NOT welcome. You expose both yourself and the forum to legal action with your rampant and obvious stupidity.

If you can't abide by either common-sense prescription, then DONT POST. Its that simple.

Your bad behavior will lead to the loss of this thread which more mature posters wish to retain to discuss things.

This channel is talking about what was done during the three days that BJP was in power and why it was necessary. It seems that SS had a plan to try to cancel the bullet train and divert the funds. There was also a plan to move funds from the account to help the farmers. These actions could not have been done by a caretaker overnment. It has been rumored DF did a lot of paperwork during this period of three days. However, I do not know if this story is true, only time will tell:

Similar stories are making the rounds on WhatsApp. Claiming BJP was very smart, this was all Chanakyan, SP was scared by Modi etc etc. Sound implausible to be honest.

Regardless of the motive or intent, if DF did move significant monies out of the hands of the SS/NCP/INC combine, then the operation was successful. Surely, the movement of funds can be easily verified.

turkey and egypt.

what were the options except import in the near term before the next harvest is ready

unseasonal rains and resulting floods have played havoc all over the country

The government will import 11000 Metric Ton (MT) of onion from Turkey in addition to 6090 MT from Egypt, in the backdrop of soaring onion prices in the Indian retail market.

On November 20, the Union Cabinet had approved the import of 1.2 lakh metric tonnes onion to ease the price in the retail market.

According to Ministry of Consumer Affairs, the Metals and Minerals Trading Corporation of India has placed the order, which will begin arriving in India later this month, while from Egypt the consignment will start reaching in mid-December.

not a single solitary word about how India will benefit from subsidizing the people of these two countries, beedi and SL, at the cost of her own needy citizens who are reeling under the very same high onion prices

Why don't they also import from elsewhere just like we are compelled to do.

SL helps vietnam dump huge quantitity of low quality pepper into the Indian market by fudging the country of origin conditions and routing via SL and the lankans are wholly complicit in this fraud.


Sri Lanka on Friday urged India to remove trade barriers for better economic cooperation among South Asian nations, saying the move by the neighbouring country to restrict exports of onions has a massive impact on prices there.

Speaking at the India Economic Summit here, Minister of Economic Reforms and Public Distribution of Sri Lanka Harsha de Silva asked India to remove restrictions on import of tea from Sri Lanka.

"India banned export of onions in the last few weeks, perhaps you may not realise it but in small countries like ours, it has major impact on prices," he said.

Last month, India had banned exports of onion and imposed stock limit on traders to ensure domestic availability amid rising prices of the kitchen staple, which had touched Rs 80 per kg.

The Centre had also stopped immediately shipments of onion at below minimum export prices to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and warned violators of strict action.

Regarding export of tea to India, Silva further said "we would like to see barriers brought down and quotas removed".

On these things, he said, "We don't need to compete, we can collaborate. So, trade barriers and restrictions among our countries in this region must seriously be brought down.

Pitifully poor labourers will toil and spend more monies to educate their kids in schools then these blood sucking parasites of JNU. This is fee structure and it remains unchanged since the day of Indira Gandhi

Karan, two things, I wasn't talking about any faiths. I was only talking about the strategy of RSS to woo a community that will never accept them. All this is done at the cost of people who vote them. DF got many schemes for them, you and I both know who are the most happiest people in MH now that BJP is not in the govt. Now again I said this in the context of that RSS guy giving example of EVR. In order to gain foothold in TN, the RSS thinks the said person is to go about it, then they'll be doing a huge injustice to indics in TN. Most of the ills that TN faces today can be traced to that gang.

Second, I did make sarcastic reply to a member but only when he made similar statement to mine. My first post on this topic was never directed towards anyone here.

Just felt I had to give my PoV as I believe you interpreted my statements in a tangential way.

decrypt Rahul Bajaj was very slyly making a "macho" political statement, emboldened by the fact that pawarful peoples have come to occupy a seat at the high table.

wasn't he as quiet as a church mouse all these days :mrgreen:

His industries are heavily in debt, mukund steel and others of the group.

We are not able to openly criticise Modi govt, Rahul Bajaj to Amit shah at ET event

Mr. Bajaj said this to Amit Shah in the presence of a few hundred industry head honchos during a television debate. Does anyone see the irony of it all?
