That's because MSM does not mention the community. It should be added to the FIR and published.

Racist congressis. To them they are all chinese.
While trying to hide its links to China by targeting the BJP, Congress depicts Japanese PM Shinzo Abe as Chinese President
https://www.opindia.com/2020/08/congres ... hina-ties/
The Congress party, under great scrutiny for its suspicious ties with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), has been struggling hard to distract attention from itself by accusing the BJP of having ties with China. In their latest attempt, they have depicted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as the Chinese President in a video targeting the BJP.

The Congress party in its tweet said that China has captured Indian territory, a claim that has been refuted by people across the board, and claimed that the BJP was buddies with the Chinese government. It further claimed that those who had kept themselves away from the Indian independence movement could not comprehend the sacrifices that have been made for the motherland.

Kamala harris publicly identifies as a "black baptist"

her sister too states that they are black.

temple visits in their youth notwithstanding.

If all she learned from her temple visits is "justice", then she is gerrymandering one half of her parentage for political expediency and electoral opportunism.

even though she certainly is one half mylapore iyer maami, she doesn't care to acknowledge that part of her genetic pool.

so why are Indians, especially in India so needlessly gung ho about her.


the salary that Harris made when she was appointed by Willie Brown to the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and later to the California Medical Assistance Commission was a $100,000 in the first job and about $120,000 in her second one, give or take. Not a small sum in those days.

harris is absolutely right when she says about willie brown that "I do not owe him a thing."

After all, it was her "services" that the sixty year old philandering reprobate willie brown bought and paid for with public funds.

so, whatever she may be, she will not be any good for India, given the leftshyte black baptist that she certainly is.

she's a more virulent version of shillary,

a hillary v2.0, if you will, neither new nor improved. :mrgreen:





Kamala Harris had an affair with a 60-year-old married man when she was 29 who 'launched her career'


As scores of media outlets and social media enthusiasts dug into Harris’ past, the piece of information that stood out the most was her affair at 29 with San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, who was then 60. The couple met in 1994.

When Brown got to know Harris was running for president in 2019, he wrote a column in the San Francisco Chronicle stating, “Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago. Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commission when I was Assembly speaker.”

Brown was speaker of the California State Assembly for 15 years. It was during the same period during which, he appointed Harris to the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and the California Medical Assistance Commission.

"The difference is that Harris is the only one who, after I helped her, sent word that I would be indicted if I 'so much as jaywalked' while she was D.A.,” Brown wrote. "That's politics for ya."

On the contrary, Harris called Brown an “albatross hanging around my neck”. She told SF Weekly in 2003, "His career is over. I will be alive and kicking for the next 40 years. I do not owe him a thing."


Fast forward to 2020, 55-year-old California senator becomes just the third woman to be selected as the vice president on a major party ticket. Then-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in 2008 and New York Representative Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 were the other two.

The Supreme Court of India on Friday held senior advocate and renowned activist Prashant Bhushan guilty for contempt of court for his two tweets against the Judiciary.

A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra pronounced its verdicts in the suo motu contempt case against Prashant Bhushan for his two tweets on the judiciary, Chief Justice of India (CJI) SA Bobde and his four predecessors.


I do not know Indian law that well but is denial/rejection of its verdict contempt, from

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-53775312

"It took action on its own authority against Prashant Bhushan, 63, for posting tweets that were allegedly derogatory to the top court."

How is this matter being referred to as "allegedly" AFTER his conviction?

Its high time that such foulmouthed and evil characters were publicly neutered and given a taste of their own bitter medicine.

The SC has done this very thing by legally calling him out.

such creeps neither have a conscience nor do they have any character.

the long arm of the law has finally caught up with him and it should now reach out to collar many others of his venomous ilk.

Implications of US politics on India can be discussed in the India-US thread. But a US politician's affairs do not belong on any thread on BRF.

What did India do with Malaysian jamati people?
Malaysia jails Indian man linked to fresh coronavirus outbreak
https://www.wionews.com/india-news/mala ... eak-320192
A Malaysian court jailed an Indian man for five months on Thursday for violating a home quarantine order, leading to dozens of new coronavirus infections, the Bernama state news agency reported.

The 57-year-old, who resides in Malaysia and owns a restaurant in the northern state of Kedah, pleaded guilty to four charges of violating a mandated 14-day home quarantine order upon his return from India in July.

He was also fined 12,000 ringgit ($2,864) by the Alor Setar Magistrate`s Court, which held a special hearing at a Kedah hospital where the accused was undergoing treatment, Bernama reported.

Authorities had earlier said the man, who initially tested negative for the coronavirus, had left his home during the quarantine period to visit his restaurant.

After a second test came back positive, dozens of people, including the man`s family members, restaurant workers and customers, were found to have been infected.

stage 3 cancer is never diagnosed so late in a celebrity like this convicted criminal.


Unlike other cancers, lung cancer is extremely hard (next to impossible) to detect in earlier stages. From what I have read and heard in past, by the time lung cancer is detected, its at an advanced stage.


There are so many variables in any cancer that the diagnosis can be extremely delayed in anybody. Somebody may be completely asymptomatic until they have a cough that does not go away and lo and behold, it turns out to be metastatic cancer to the lungs - or a stage 3 primary. Same with any other system. It has nothing to do with the person being a celebrity or mango man. This is where 'kismat' comes in.

One thing the Mumbai circuit will teach you is that not everyone is of the religion of their ancestors or what their names indicate. Some examples
So many of the so called Parsi's have connections (familial) with one brother. This happened during the British rule.
Many of the Bollywood new starlets are targeted by "study groups" orchestrated by a consulate. It's becoming a rite of passage
Some of the so called Islamic names in Bollytown belong to another brother.
The wife of a well liked politician hobnobs with these study groups but on the surface celebrates Hindu festivals.

We have to be cautious.

It's South Bombay-itis (or South Delhi, if you so wish) disorder. Can't blame these people. Their world ends beyond flora fountain. Borivali is as distant to them as Bangladesh, let alone Bihar. They have lived in their isolated echo chambers for so long that they have lost connect with the rest of the nation. There is a whole new generation in India that is not bogged down by the regressions of previous generations, are liberal in their thought, but fiercely proud of their culture and heritage. These "columnists" have lost the narrative.

Time to renew the list of pseudo-intellectual columnists else the already moribund print media will hasten its own demise.

A huge majority of Indian rely more on vernacular media which has a far better grasp of the country's realities and the reporters in Indian languages wear no such tinted glasses.

This is concerning International Strategic Issues. If this is not the correct thread for the same, request to the Mods to shift it to the appropriate thread, or if required create a new thread.

PART-I
Over the next decade a new cold war will take shape. Two alliances will take shape during this time. One alliance already exists, i.e. the NATO+ alliance. Which is NATO plus the other western allies like Japan, South Korea, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, minus Turkey. Over the next decade, Turkey will be out of NATO. Some other smaller countries that will also be part of this alliance will be the gulf arab states of Saudi, UAE, Bahrain and Kuwait. The current establishment of relations between UAE and Israel is also part of this.
The other alliance will be a China led loose alliance of China, North Korea, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, and Qatar.
There will be two frontline states that will be able to tip of the balance either ways. Russia and India.
Recently we have seen the news of a proposed China Iran deal worth upto $400 billion. This is nothing but a CPEC style distress sale deal. Iran is still trying to understand the contours of the deal, as most likely it will be nothing but a colonial style deal, which will effectively make Iran a colony of China. Iran currently does not have too many options, as the economic situation at home is worsening and once covid is over, the mullahs will find it harder to hold onto power and avoid demonstrations and protests at home. Once they assess that the situation is truly bad, they will have no choice but to sign up for the deal with China. They will get assured long term contracts for their oil with China. Large scale infrastructure development like the Chabahar port and road and rail connectivity to central asia and Afghanistan. This will unlock vast oil and gas reserves in central asia and unlock Afghanistan fully. Throughout history there has never been a time when Pakistan and Iran has been on the same side in Afghanistan. Right from the days of Mughal and Safavid empires. With China also on board, no other country would be able to wield any significant influence in Afghanistan. The mineral wealth like Lithium, Copper, Iron Ore and rare earth minerals will be easy to extract for Chinese companies. China will also get the choke hold on the persian gulf and the straight of Hormuz and gulf of Oman, with control of the Chabahar and Gwadar ports and military bases in between. Plus Iran’s own military control over the traight of Hormuz. Coupled with China’s military base in Djibouti, it will give China some control over the excess between the Red and Arabian Sea.
This brings us to the two frontline states. Russia and India.
In the case of Russia, it is already leaning a lot towards China, with increasing economic dependence and continuing western sanctions. Plus the traditional old cold war rivalry with the west and NATO.
However, I’m sure Putin is aware of the dangers of too close an embrace with the Chinese dragon. Also, Russia is also aware that with the continued ascent of China and its own economic woes, it will have to play second fiddle to the Chinese in the years to come. It is also vary of the Chinese appetite for its resources, from mineral to land and also fresh water and would certainly like to be master of its own resources. Already there have been reports of wealthy Chinese buying up prime real estate on the banks of lake Baikal and other places, much to the displeasure of the local population. However, adversarial policies still being followed primarily by the US-UK combine is not helping the matters.
Similar to Iran, if the domestic economy continues to struggle, Russia will have no other option then to lean more and more on China. Currently the EU is still Russia’s biggest trading partner. But, if the sanctions are increased and projects like the Nord Stream-II are scuttled, Russia will struggle. Oil and gas prices are expected to remain weak going forward and for most other natural resources, China will be the biggest market.

PART - II

What can China Offer Russia:
Come 2025 approximately, if the current western sanctions against Russia have continued or increased and the Russian economy is struggling, Putin would feel the domestic pressure increasing. It is easy to imagine China offering a bailout distress sale offer of say $1 Trillion to Russia. The deal would include like for other countries, large scale infrastructure development. Developing ports for trans-shipment etc. on the Russian arctic coast. Oil and gas pipelines running from the arctic to the Arabian Sea, via Iran and central asia-Afghanistan-Pakistan. China could also offer Russia joint control over the central Asian dictators. The economy would be mainly controlled by China, whereas Russian oil and gas companies would share the spoils with Chinese companies for the hydro carbon resources of these countries. The foreign policy and defence policy of the countries would be jointly controlled by China and Russia. This way Russia’s traditional sphere of influence would be safe guarded-somewhat. Apart from the north-south hydro carbon pipelines, such an alliance would be able to develop oil and gas pipelines running all along the OBOR projects, resulting in pipelines all the way from Vladivostok to the Caspian and Black seas, to the Mediterranean sea.
With Turkey too being part of the informal alliance, it would secure the caucuses region for Russia. All the wannabe jihadis could be sent off to fight against western targets, rather than fester in Russia’s soft underbelly. It would also be for the first time in history that Russia and Turkey would be on the same side, as far as the caucuses region would be concerned.
Apart from all this, it would help Putin stay in power for ever, with Chinese economic assistance, the same way the mullahs in Iran and every other tin pot dictator in Central Asia and Africa would gain.

If Russia were to become a part of the China led alliance, then by 2030, this alliance would be stronger militarily as compared to the NATO plus alliance.

What can the Western Alliance Offer Russia:
Closer economic integration with Europe and western economies. End to the sanctions against Russia and support for projects like Nord Stream-II. A negotiated settlement with Ukraine, which would recognize Russian control over Crimea (either outright annexation or say a 99 or 199 year lease etc), in exchange for full Ukrainian control over Mariopol with unhindered access. Removal of all Russia backed mercenary militias from eastern Ukraine and disarming all Russia backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, in exchange for some measure of autonomy to the elected local government of Donetsk and Luhansk. Ukraine not becoming part of NATO.

In exchange for the above, Russian would remain out of the China led alliance and also help put pressure on Turkey and not sell weapons to countries like Iran etc. Russia wouldn’t mind such a situation; as it would be able to remain kind of neutral, while enjoying the best of both worlds.
Also, Putin most likely understands the dangers that a rampant China poses, to Russia itself.
However, what would be the guarantee that Russia would honour its part of the bargain and not join up with China if push came to shove? I currently can’t think of any strong measures that the western alliance can take to ensure this.
Any ideas with regards to this would be welcome.

Part - III

Second frontline state India:
India would be natural partner and ally of the western alliance. However, as on date, India is not part of any kind of formal or informal alliance.
Just to play the devil’s advocate and explore the other option, we can also look at what India could gain or loose by joining a China led alliance.
What could India offer China and vice a versa:
India could negotiate with China to drop Pakistan as its trusted henchmen and colony and instead let Pakistan disintegrate. In return, India would join the China OBOR project and would look to integrate even more closely in the economic sphere with China. This would also buy India peace on its eastern border, while the threat on the western border would have been neutralized.
India would also be able to join China as a partner in OBOR related projects in its neighbourhood in countries like Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Maldives etc. being in alliance with China, would also ensure peace and complete control over the Indian Ocean region. Economically India would still be able to continue its transactions with western countries, just as China does and if India and Russia, both were to be part of the China led alliance, then militarily the alliance would hold the sway, all the way from the eastern Mediterranean to half of the Pacific Ocean.
With both India and China being on the same side, would force most of south east Asian countries and African countries also accept the hegemony of such a China led alliance.
However, in such an arrangement, India would always remain subservient to China and would always have to play second fiddle to the Chinese. Besides Chinese economic strategy has always been predatory and no other country in the China led alliance would be an economic competitor to China, apart from India. This would not be a good situation for India.

What could India get by joining the Western Alliance:
If India were to formally or informally join the western alliance, than the military balance between the two blocks would get balanced by 2030, even if Russia were to become part of the China led alliance. Without Russia, the military balance would remain in favour of the western alliance with India become part of it.
India would also be an economic competitor for China and would help balance out the Chinese influence in the wider south east Asian and African regions.
If India were to really shed it non-aligned stance and join such an alliance, either through bilateral agreements or also few multilateral agreements, then India must recognize what it brings to the table and negotiate accordingly.
The negotiations should ensure that it covers all aspects of India’s national power and not just the military aspect.
In this respect the deal that India should look for should be more like what Japan or Germany or South Korea got in the post war years. Any kind of military alliance should also include Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) between India and the EU, UK and USA. The FTA’s should be slightly more favourable to India in all cases, India being a developing country, while all the others are highly developed. In addition to this, increasing India’s economic muscle should be one of the stated objectives of such FTA’s.
Even preferential immigration treatment for Indians in all western countries, as well as the Gulf Arab monarchies. As the remittance from such workers is like labour exports for India.

There could be bilateral FMS style economic deals, concerning large western countries setting up manufacturing etc in India. The Indian government could also dole out one time company or industry specific concessions for companies moving their operation from China to India.
Some would say that in a free market economy, this would not be possible and the government would not be able to dictate where companies setup operations. But in practice this is not true.
Even in the US, the government does have a say and geo politics does play a role in business as well.
As an example, a company like Intel would not be free to setup a world class fab anywhere in the world, without the US government being OK with it.
The deal should also include access to critical military technology and military hardware. The first would be more difficult, as the western MIC needs countries like India to survive and India remains one of the last major buyers of large scale military equipment. However, for almost 75 years, India has been the ultimate prize to be lured out of the non-aligned stance and formally join a politico-military alliance. India should realize its own importance and look to punch above its weight.
If India were to formally join a western alliance, in the year to come, it would become the lynch pin against Chinese hegemony in Asia. Without India, the battle for the western alliance would be much more difficult. India might also help the western alliance keep Russia as neutral, due to its traditional friendly ties.
At the same time, one also has to recognize, that the time for non-alignment is over. During the 20th century cold war, the main battle ground was Europe and India was mostly not directly effected and hence could remain non-aligned, while leaning a little towards the Soviet Union.
In the coming cold war of the 21st century, the battle ground will be Asia and India will be right in the middle of it. This time around it will not have the luxury of remaining non-aligned.

This is how aloopurie's India today proves it's sickluraism and continues to submissively lick the boots of the jehadi congis, commies, muslims.

KAR's "respected" deccan herald is not too far behind in sucking up to the liberandu and jehadi elements that not too long ago, came rampaging to their offices with every intention of burning down the place.

This is the post truth publishing world that has already caught up with Indian multi platform conmedia quite some time ago :mrgreen:

they have knowingly and delibrately painted a target on naveen's back.


With one ‘profile’ of Naveen, India Today becomes a part of the Muslim mob that burnt Bengaluru, thirsty for his blood: Read how

Naveen had wished Sunny Leone on her birthday.


That is all the evidence on the basis of which Rahul Kanwal and India Today are screaming from the rooftop that Naveen is a Sunny Leone fan

India Today engaged in the character assassination of Naveen


The recent riots in Bengaluru where a Muslim mob went on a rampage due to an alleged blasphemous post against the prophet of Islam have revealed, once again, that the mainstream media is truly an enemy of the people. A concerted campaign of character assassination appears to be underway against P Naveen Kumar, the person who is accused to have made the said Facebook post, in order to justify the violence by the Muslim mob.

After Deccan Herald painted Naveen as a ‘serial offender‘, now India Today has published a ‘character profile’ of the nephew of the Dalit Congress MLA on the basis of which it has been claimed that the 35-year old is a fan of Sunny Leone. Great emphasis has been laid on that particular fact, for reasons known best to India Today, considering the fact that Sunny Leone has no relevance whatsoever to what happened on Tuesday night.

Rahul Kanwal tweet sharing the India Today report
The tone and tenor of the character profile makes it abundantly clear what the objective of India Today is. The objective is to portray Naveen as the villain of the whole episode in order to absolve the crimes of the Muslim mob and justify the violence that was perpetrated against the family of the Congress MLA.

The character profile begins ominously, “A commerce graduate, P. Naveen Kumar, now under arrest, shot to infamy overnight after his alleged blasphemous post plunged Bengaluru into its worst night of violence in decades.” And throughout the report, India Today did not find one good thing to say about him.

The sub-headings of the character profile prove it quite abundantly. ‘NO RIGID POLITICAL IDEOLOGY’, ‘A SUNNY LEONE FAN’, ‘NO STRANGER TO CONTROVERSY’, ‘NOT A BRIGHT STUDENT’ are some of the sub-headings that have been used. Furthermore, the content does not justify the sub-headings at all.

The post was blasphemous, rules India Today
For instance, it is claimed that Naveen does not have a rigid political ideology because he wished the Muslim community on Eid. It says, “A deep-dive into his Facebook handle, which has since been deactivated, suggests Naveen had no rigid political ideology. He would join his uncle and Congress MLA R. Akhanda Srinivas Murthy in wishing Eid to the Muslim community.”

The character profile continued, “In a post about Janmashtami greetings, he appears to be taking pride in India’s secularism with a picture showing a burqa-clad woman and children dressed up as Shri Krishna and Radha.” These are the justifications provided by India Today to prove that Naveen does not have a rigid political ideology. It is actually quite hilarious. These comments actually paint Naveen as secular, a fact that a liberal media house like India Today should be celebrating, not criticising.

For its much-publicised claim of Naveen being a Sunny Leone fan, India Today stated, “Sunny Leone seems to be another role-model for Naveen. On May 12, he posted her picture with a caption reading she “proved our past never decides our destiny”.” As evidence, a screenshot of a birthday wish to the former adult movie actress was attached. That is all the evidence on the basis of which Rahul Kanwal and India Today are screaming from the rooftop that Naveen is a Sunny Leone fan. Yes, just because Naveen wished the actress on her birthday, he became such a big fan of her that it became the most important factor in his profile prepared using ‘digital forensics on his social media accounts done by India Today’s Open Source Intelligence Team’, and it found a place in the headline.

This was reason enough for India Today to brand Naveen a Sunny Leone fan
It appears as if India Today was too lazy to even pretend that the sole purpose of the character profile was anything other than the character assassination of the nephew of the Congress MLA. It says, “A security guard and a driver in the area for a decade told India Today that Naveen was never seen going to work. Instead, he was often seen “chilling with friends”.”

Throughout the profile, India Today downplayed the fact that Naveen would often share pictures and posts conveying the message of communal harmony. Such messages that he shared was interpreted as him not having a rigid political ideology. Thus, quite clearly, the news network had a vendetta against him and proceeded to slander him in the name of journalism.

By the end of it, it appears that India Today felt a compulsion to punish the individual who dared to insult the prophet of Islam. Unlike previous occasions, when they would justify the violence committed by Muslims mobs, this time, they were so troubled it seems, that in addition to justifying the attack on the Dalit Congress MLA’s house, they have also decided to punish Naveen in their personal capacity for the apparent insult to their beloved prophet.

The mainstream media, which pretends to care a lot about Dalits, proves yet again that they will gladly throw Dalits under the bus and blame Dalits if they are attacked by violent Muslim mobs. Their abject surrender to the radical elements within the Muslim community appears utter and complete. Deccan Herald and India Today appear to be leading the pack when it comes to submission to Radical Islam.

Rahul Gandhi@RahulGandhi
BJP & RSS control Facebook & Whatsapp in India.

They spread fake news and hatred through it and use it to influence the electorate.

Finally, the American media has come out with the truth about Facebook.

Wing Commander Namrita Chandi hits out on Karan Johar’s Dharma Production for ‘monstrous film’ Gunjan Saxena for showing IAF in poor light
https://www.opindia.com/2020/08/former- ... an-saxena/
Amidst the ongoing controversy that has erupted over Bollywood movie ‘Gunjan Saxena’ for negatively portraying the Indian Air Force, a former Air Force officer has written a scathing letter to the makers of the movie saying that they cannot peddle lies in the name of creative freedom.

In her letter to the makers of the movie – ‘Gunjan Saxena’, published by the Outlook, Wing Commander Namrita Chandi (Retd) has a written a detailed response addressing the negative portrayal of the Indian Armed Forces, especially Indian Air Force and has given a befitting reply by rejecting the claims of extreme gender bias, misogyny and even harassment of women in the IAF as portrayed in the movie.

Wing Commander Chandi (Retd.), in her letter, has said that both men and women have trained together in the Armed Forces and have seen each other under the worst of circumstances.

“This rebuttal to “Gunjan Saxena, The Kargil Girl”, has as little to do with Gunjan, as has the film,” Chandi categorically clarifies at the beginning.

Clearly a Trojan horse and i'm sure BJP knows it too. But poor PR on BJP's part to even allow such rubbish to join the party even if one knows this is temporary.

FB post about islamic truth causes riots from terrorist minority but majority is still drinking Kool aid for centuries.

And it should have been all Hindus and not only ISKCON.

Zee continues to flirt in territory occupied by netflix, Amazon prime, etc.

I don't think that this clearly happens by an accident.

Some RW people I talk to go into raptures when some peacefool people join the BJP or Congis defect to the BJP, but they don't realize that this is watering down the party and gradually after a point BJP will become another Congress.
Cong was also pro Hindu at some point and then it became an Islamic party.
