A medical team from Kerala visited Mumbai, UP Police came to investigate Vikas Dubey case, a team from Bihar police is already working in Mumbai since 4 days but none of them were quarantined then why only an SP rank officer is treated differently?

I think the Trump visit and Covid was a godsend as it completely messed up the Plans. Trump visit was to tempting and they could resist to Riot and Covid put a spanner in international Hawala networks through Tawheed jamat, related gold smuggling etc..... the wheels within wheels , meanwhile the CHinese planned to use this situation by occupying land, activating N E Insurgents while Pakistan would have used Kashmir, Heating up of the LOC, internally BIF would have used activate Maoists.

The Level and depth of BIF and how far they have embedded themselves in Indian society is staggering.

Only a purge of anti nationals from every possible field, from Bollywood to media to judiciary to bureaucracy and lastly the police can save us now. After a house cleaning of all BIF infra and their supporters, we can turn our attention to Pakis and Chinis.

It's time to go on the offensive. Or else even if they didn't succeed this time, they might succeed in their next attempt.

Don't think it's right to call Covid a godsend.

Anyway, the cleanup has to start with the crooked media and the "journalists". They are the linchpins, can't even touch the others without having the narrative setters on your side.

powarfool peoples padma vibhushan and other family members are very very quiet. no support is being extended and one local die nastie's political legacy, as well as, future may be in serious jeopardy of getting obliterated.

but, OTOH, parth pawar is demanding a cbi inquiry into the sushant singh rajput case and his cousin MLA rohit pawar is also supporting this demand thus playing both sides which is the usual powarfool peoples tried and tested strategy.

something is cooking and the fires are burning hotter by the hour.


arnab would not be saying this openly and publicly without concrete proof and evidence

at the same time, this also looks like big time payback for the cooked up FIRs filed, crude intimidation tactics, and public humiliation done on orders from on high on the antonio maino issue :mrgreen:

Watch this between 11:00 min and 16:20 min ... the wheels are in motion now. When jurnos go so far as Navika went today we are nearing the tipping point in the case. She used the word "Murder" ...

Family had complained to the Mumbai Police BEFORE his death that there was a threat to Sushant Singh Rajput! Mumbai police tried to pass off the whole thing as Suicide AFTER a complain in FEB and AFTER the death! His death after a complain should have automatically made it a case of suspicious death BUT not in the eyes of Mumbai Police. Mumbai Police has lost it. You can watch further if you have time.

Makes it look like a coverup. This is BIG and will destroy ALL defense of Mumbai Police and Maharashtra government. Massive! Massive!

Bihar CM has recommended CBI probe into Sushant Singh's death based on his father's request. Once GOI accepts the recco, the petition pending before the SC to transfer the FIR in Bihar to Mumbai becomes void?

1st, The fact that Mumbai police did nothing even after the family had expressed fear for Sushant's life AND choose to treat his death as suicide instead of suspicious death AFTER his death is going to go against Mumbai police and Maharashtra gov. big time.

2nd, While not co-operating with Bihar police Mumbai police did allowed them to go about their investigation. Once Bihar police asked for the Disha Salyan file not only the file disappeared but also the "indifferent" Mumbai police turned hostile towards Bihar police. Seems like Bihar police touched a raw nerve in Mumbai.

The Disha Salyan death HAS to be re-investigated along side the Sushant Singh case. Mumbai police extreme reaction is pointer that things are not what they appear to be.

Veer Savarkar’s prophecy ‘The day Hindus unite, Congress leaders will wear janeu over the coat’ comes true as they celebrate construction of Ram Mandir
https://www.opindia.com/2020/08/veer-sa ... dir-janeu/
Speaking against Congress’ disinformation campaign about a possible alliance between Hindu Mahasabha and Muslim League for the elections in the Sindh province of undivided India on July 10, 1943, Savarkar had said that one day Congress leaders would be forced to propagate Hindu principles by wearing a janeu, not just on their body but also on their coats.

Savarkar meant that the Congress party which tried to peddle lies about a possible alliance between ideologically disparate parties of Hindu Mahasabha and Muslim League, in an attempt to slice away Hindu votes away from the Hindu Mahasabha, will in future have to overtly manifest their Hindu credentials to gain the support of Hindu voters.

India’s decision to check the power of Chinese tech should be followed by other democracies

However, the very tools that empower also have the potential to inhibit — mainly, by creating a semipermeable membrane that allows selective passage of information. The risk expands when the rules of this membrane are set by the arbitrariness of algorithms of state-sponsored platforms or dictated by the state of origin. Digital influence operations during elections in the United States and other countries in the West are a case in point. We have seen the impact of nonaccountability of platforms, and the opaqueness of their algorithms and data handling practices, on the lives of citizens.

For a variety of reasons — from fears of upsetting Chinese investors to concerns that democracies should not easily take recourse to bans and restrictions — there has been limited political will on the part of governments to exercise appropriate checks and balances. The platforms have exploited and gamed this dilemma. This has led to them consolidating a grip on information consumption and decision-making that is quite frankly denied to global platforms in China itself. It is in this regard that the Indian decision to ban 59 suspect apps crosses the digital Rubicon and in doing so protects the democratic rights and values of India’s constitution.


The weaponization of information is real. It could compromise millions of unsuspecting citizens who are pushed to use Chinese platforms, often without explicit knowledge or consent.


State-backed Chinese platforms pose a challenge to not just India but in fact to all democracies. In the long run, endeavors of this nature toxically undermine the ideals and essence of the Internet. India’s ban on certain Chinese apps does not divide the Internet as much as draw a line between platforms incubated in democracies and platforms incubated under Chinese authoritarianism.

and once again, the blatant congi appeasement of the muslim league and the muslims begins shamefully, so soon after the bhumi pujan is over and the glow from many of the lit diyas may not even have extinguished yet.

a real panic has set in among the commies and the congis and the lootyens liberandus :mrgreen:




Shashi Tharoor@ShashiTharoor·4h

Whatever you feel about today's events, the Masjid's demolition is a blot on our conscience. As @RahulGandhi said in 2007, "My father said to my mother that he would stand in front of Babri Masjid. They would have had to kill him first”.






Shashi Tharoor@ShashiTharoor·4h

Some Left-liberal intellectuals are accusing @INCIndia of being BJP-Lite. Yes, many leaders welcomed the Ram temple after the SC judgement. But they did NOT instigate Hindus against Muslims.They did NOT make hate speeches against the Muslim community.They hailed the ideal Ramji.



Shashi Tharoor @ShashiTharoor·4h

To those who insist there is no difference between the political parties in India, I ask: is there is no difference between those who would respectfully have come to an accommodation with the Muslim community on a Ram mandir, & those who, with rage & hate, destroyed the mosque?




Shashi Tharoor@ShashiTharoor

And to those Muslims who tell me they feel let down by @INCIndia, pl.check what the Holy Quran says in ch.60, verses 8& 9: https://quran.com/60/8-9?translations=101
Who exactly betrayed you? Not those who stand for an inclusive India, who have neither attacked you nor preached hatred against you.

It had, earlier in the day, put out that several Ram Mandir leaders had CBI cases against them, forgetting that its owners themselves had CBI cases for fraud, money laundering and other such dishonest acts and are currently not allowed to travel out of the country due to a lookout notice.

The 96-year-old, who claims to be a witness to the horrific event on January 30, 1948, said he "could not hear anything due to the commotion after the incident".
"Everybody was shouting when the Mahatma was shot. I could not hear anything in the din. He may have uttered 'Hey Ram'. I do not know," Kalyanam said


In all likeness he probably said, "har har modi, ghar ghar modi". Such visionary :mrgreen:

Rahul Baba's father's wish was granted! They killed him first, before he could go and stand in front of Babri Masjid.
As for RaGa, he is standing in front of the Chinese embassy!
Shampoo Tharoor should also focus his conscience on the destruction of temples and religious symbols by peacefuls. It is a blot on the country that let these symbols of plunder, pillage and loot stay for so many years on the holiest sites of Hindus.

Thanks. Apologies in advance for the slight thread derailment - your background interests me in the context of this forum and your post above. You're from the post 1992 generation, correct ? You're a demographic whose voice here is small, but is very significant given that you're a member of the half of population that's under 35; most of us here are over that age.

Would you mind taking time in the politics thread to describe what you see on SM or IRL regarding the political views of your generation, and also how they view Modi in the context of what you said above ? How is that different from their views of (insert anyone else in his age group or older) ? Why do you think they hold this view ?

Thanks in advance. I think your perspective would be very enlightening to the forum in the appropriate thread.


Thanks for asking me this question. I will try to put into words the thoughts and observations I have had for a long time.

First of all I am 21. (Even the forum is older than I am) So I have not even graduated college yet. And I come from a middle class background.

So coming back to the question about how my generation feels, I have to narrate my own transformation. Pre 2014 I was a secular. I was young and I didn't knew much back then. Even though I had started reading newspaper much earlier than my peers, I had been thoroughly brainwashed through all those NCERT books written by commies starting from class 6 and used to listen to NDTV. Barkha and company were my favourite news channel. And Rahul Gandhi was the preferred choice for the post of Prime Ministership in 2014 for me and my politically aware friends . It was mainly because most of us came from a so called secular family who viewed NaMo and Hindutva in bad light. As some kind of bad person responsible for 2002. And being from a peaceful state where we didn't see the face of the peacefool community on a daily basis made us live in delusional world of secularism. And on top of that the so called 'intellectuals' stranglehold on our thought process and subsequent brainwashing that followed. So we believed whatever they said, becuz we thought they are 'intellectuals' so how can they be wrong? Even though we were very much angry about the corruption that took place in UPA-2, we thought maybe Rahul Gandhi will save us becuz those intellectuals said so. I still remember as a kid waking up and reading everyday on the newspaper how a new scam had taken place, Pakis had beheaded our soldiers, China had grabbed territory etc etc. But we still believed Rahul Gandhi is a good man.

But all of that changed on the day of 16 May 2014.

The moment NaMo won, something changed inside me and many of my friends. How could the intellectuals be so wrong about this thing? Yes, the run up to the General Elections had made sure Rahul Gandhi was forever tagged as a Pappu. But we still believed he was a good man. So why had the country rejected him so massively? And then we felt attracted towards Modi. I still remember watching his every speech from his victory in 2014 to oath taking ceremony to election speeches he had given prior to General elections and even after that in Maharashtra elections. Very intently I watched and I found that he had that certain charisma which had attracted me and many of my friends to the fold.

The rise of social media ensured that all the stranglehold the so called intellectuals had on knowledge and thought process was wiped out. And I came to know about Ram Janmabhoomi and the white washing of our history, the crimes of banditji and his family and how this congressi nepotism at top had ensured a class system in which Raja ka beta Raja baneja doctrine was followed to the fullest in every industry and every job.

It exposed the face of congressi appeasement and sickularism. The true colours of the media, writers producers, Bhaiwood, bureaucrats, politicians etc was also exposed. How BIF forces were conspiring to break India and how India was truly alone. The deshdrohis aka commies and Islamists being blood thirsty for Hindus. The media especially lost credibility in the eyes of our gen. Barkha, Sardesai etc etc were openly called out for their crimes.

All of these ensured that I and most of my generation went from sickularism to Kattar Hindutva. This all happened because of social media and forums like Bharat Rakshak. For which I am thankful of.

And from what I have observed from 2014, I felt Indians and it's upcoming generations are finally reclaim it's lost confidence. It is no longer a shame to wear the tag of an Indian Hindu but it is now a matter of pride. From the bleak situation in 2013 to a bright future of Ram temple in 2021, I can now feel that India is now ready to reclaim it's lost glory because it has retuned to it's roots. That is the view of my generation of unapologetic Hindus.

The day Ram Janmabhoomi court case was settled in Supreme Court, all of my friends celebrated that momentous occasion. Even yesterday most of them were watching the program on TV and were very active on social media. And when Ram mandir construction will finally get over, my gen and the coming gen will remember it forever.

From what I have seen, when Ramayana was telecasting all of my friends watched in rapt attention, and this Ram issue has even brought out the Hindutva in even the most sickular person of my gen. From what I believe, most of the build school, hospital, etc etc thoughts/suggestions coming from my gen were because many of them thought building Ram temple is an impossibility. But suddenly when that changed on the November judgement of supreme court and the events that took place yesterday, wiped out the sickularism in them. They are now proud to identify themselves as Hindus. No more Ganga Jamuna tamasha.

Coming to your questions. My Gen first got attracted to Modi was he won in 2014. Then as time passed, we found a new confidence in our country. And NaMo represented our confidence and aspirations about making India great again. He embraced his culture, his religion and was proud of it. The genuineness he displayed acted as a magnet for us who had become increasingly aware of the threats our country faced both externally and internally. So he was became our protector. And a Elder of our family.

In comparison, many of the older generation (my father included) viewed him as a dramebaaz, feku, etc etc. And revered the Congress leaders and hoped for a congress rivival. They are the generation who worshipped Indira Gandhi and the freedom fighter Banditji. Their parents (aka my grandparents) had influenced their thought process.

They are not that active on social media as much as our generation is. So their views formed from years of Congressi brainwashing can't be so easily removed. So it feels as if the young generation wants Modi while the older 50+ Gen wants congress back.

But the most profound impact Modi has are on kids. The children are now recognising Modi was the elderly grandpa and the paramount leader. I have seen instances when every word said by modi is taken very seriously. Like for example when modi introduced Swachch Bharat abhiyan, our principal in school remarked that from that day onwards the young pre adolocent children were taking the campaign very seriously and even scolding the elders if they tried to litter.

The political ramifications of this is that Namo has more sway over Indians especially young Indians more than any leader in our history. The future gen and even my gen will not remember who congress was or what their legacy was. But will definitely remember it was Modi who built Ram temple. And who changed our nation.

I think that answers all the questions you had posed, Suraj ji. I hope it's helps the Brf members in understanding what my gen think of modi.

Wise much beyond your years. May you and your generation prosper and revive India to reach its old station.

AshishAcharya: :eek: My word, that was a tour de force of a post, young man! I cannot claim to speak for the forum, but I learned a lot from your post about how the 18-30 generation in India think .

From my early millennial perspective, we were shaped by events like Kargil and the nuclear tests of 1999. You were barely born then . It is very revealing to understand the political events that are shaping the minds of your generation.

It is very heartening to see your generation take such pride in your heritage and culture. We see your loud presence on SM but before you, I don’t think anyone has as yet articulated the worldview of the generation that just voted the first time .

I’ve often asserted from data that GE 2014 and 2019 are anomalies with turnouts absurdly high - multiple standard deviations above long term avg. Your description of the level of political engagement of your generation helps answer some of that .

Your lot are smarter, more engaged and confident than whatever could be mustered by my gen or our predecessors . The nation is in good hands.

Thanks for putting all that down. As you've probably figured out by now, the more somebody is claimed to be an intellectual or expert in h** field, the higher the standards that the person has to be held to, in terms of basic sanity checks. While there is no cause to be disrespectful, if the person is bluffing, there will be enough red flags that even a lay person can pick up on, if that lay person is not enthralled by the aura.

A hard-earned lesson for me, I too was in the thrall of very many "intellectuals" until I wised up.

Feeling reassured now, that once the younger generations come of voting age, many things will change (or are already changing).

India and the emerging world: The impact on the global order of China’s rise will be visible over the next generation

Dr. S. Jaishankar, Minister of External Affairs

If you had believed the best minds of our times, this was not supposed to happen. But for two decades, China had been winning without fighting, while the US was fighting without winning. Something had to give and it did, in the 2016 American presidential election.

The world faces an extraordinary prospect of its two leading players doing what it takes to win, and then some more. In the ultimate analysis, the ability of major powers to reach accommodation will shape our times. When ‘black swans’ meet ‘grey rhinos’, the very nature of the habitat undergoes transformation.

The US-China relationship that currently holds global attention has gone on for four decades, not a short span in modern times. Who benefited more in this period is a question to which we may get a different answer today than two decades ago. But because it was long enough to be taken as a given by two generations, we attribute to it a sense of being natural. We ask why it is under stress now, when we could wonder equally easily why it lasted that long.

Many of the discomforts today arise from differences on key issues like the relationship between the state, politics, society, business, faith and the markets. It is expressed in matters of personal freedoms and institutional firewalls. Sociology matters, especially once it assumes global proportions. This is at the heart of the predicament the world faces today. And creating common ground is, therefore, the hardest diplomatic challenge.

The rise of a new global power was never going to be easy, and an order waiting to happen will look like chaos till it does. In an interdependent and constrained world, it can only unfold through tensions and negotiations, adjustments and transactions. In this process, much will depend on what is allowed to take root.

The impact on the global order of these developments is likely to be visible over the next generation. That would have many dimensions, each of them in itself a source of potential instability. The most obvious one is that the world will be increasingly multipolar as distribution of power broadens and alliance discipline dilutes. A more nationalistic approach to international relations will undeniably weaken multilateral rules in many domains. This will be particularly sharp in respect of economic interests and sovereignty concerns.

This prospect of multipolarity with less multilateralism suggests a more difficult future even for the near term. This does not mean giving up on the latter. On the contrary, it requires a new energy to be poured into reformed multilateralism. The current anachronistic order must be pushed to change, along with its outdated agenda. The emerging world is also likely to fall back on balance of power as its operating principle, rather than collective security or a broader consensus. History has demonstrated that this approach usually produces unstable equilibriums. World affairs will also see a proliferation of frenemies. They will emerge from allies who criticise each other or competitors compelled to make common cause.

The really uncharted territory that US-China frictions will take us into is that of coping with parallel universes. They may have existed before, most recently during the Cold War. But not with interdependence and interpenetration of the globalised era. As a result, divergent choices and competing alternatives in many spheres will rest on partially shared foundations. This dilemma will be evident in a growing number of domains, from technology, commerce and finance to connectivity, institutions and activities. The key players will themselves struggle with the dichotomy of such parallel existence. Those who have to manage both, as most of us will, may then find themselves really tested.

Even if ties between China and the West take on a more adversarial character, it is difficult to return to a strongly bipolar world. The primary reason for that is the landscape has now changed irreversibly. Other nations are independently on the move, including India. Half of the 20 largest economies of the world are non-Western now. Diffusion of technology and demographic differentials will also contribute to the broader spread of influence. We see forces at play that reflect the relative primacy of local equations when the global construct is less overbearing. The reality is that the US may have weakened, but China’s rise is still far from maturing. And together, the two processes have freed up room for others.

If division within alliances was one evolution, reaching beyond them was another. As the world moved in the direction of greater plurilateralism, result-oriented cooperation started to look more attractive. They were better focussed and could be reconciled with contrary commitments. The growing imperative of sharing responsibilities was combined with an appreciation of influences beyond formal structures. Asia has been a particular focus for such initiatives, as regional architecture is the least developed there. India today has emerged as an industry leader of such plurilateral groups, because it occupies both the hedging and the emerging space at the same time.

Because global fluidity is so pervasive, India must address this challenge of forging more contemporary ties on every major account. Achieving an overall equilibrium will depend on how it fares on the individual ones.

SC calls for charge sheets in Palghar lynching case to be produced before it
The bench further directed the state to bring on record the enquiry conducted against the policemen allegedly involved in the offence and action, if any, that was initiated against them
This is good.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBI, pointed out that if the court comes to a conclusion stating police’s involvement in the offence, it must order a CBI probe.
This is better.
