Thread.

Recently, Harsimrat Kaur @HarsimratBadal_ claimed in parliament that Guru Tegh Bahadur protected the religion of Hindus despite of being a Non-Hindu. And Hindus owe a huge favor to others.

In this thread, I will show that Guru Tegh Bahadur was every inch a Hindu!

Let us begin with some contemporary sources.

Guru Tegh Bahadur visited the holy Triveni at Prayaga in 1662 CE.

This visit is documented in contemporary Bhat Vahi records.

Unlike those unpublished "bhat vahis", this one was published by Sikh historian Madanjit Kaur (1978)
This Bhat Vahi was signed by Guru Tegh Bahadur.

The content of the letter is particularly striking.

Guru Tegh Bahadur calls himself a devotee of Naina Devi.

Note. A devotee of Naina Devi. He does not mention Akal Purakh or Waheguru.
In the record, Guru Tegh Bahadur identifies himself as Sodhi Khatri by Varna and Kaushish by gotra.

This is exactly how the followers of orthodox Hinduism identify themselves to this date!
Further, Guru Tegh Bahadur appoints a brahmin purohit named Bhoj Raj.

He orders Sodhis of his line and all his Sikh followers to obey the aforementioned Brahmin Purohit.

This practice of appointing purohits is just what is referred to by some people as "Brahmanical Hinduism"
This evidence, which marks Guru Tegh Bahadur as strikingly Hindu, is also corroborated by other Sikh accounts.

Kavi Santokh Singh's Sri Guru Pratap Suraj Granth preserves a very rare passage which throws light on what Guru Tegh Bahadur uttered in Mughal court.
When the Guru was offered the choice of Islam or dεath in the Mughal court, this is what he said

"I believe my Hindu Dharma to be most superior.
How can I abandon that which is most dear to me?
Which gives so much happiness in this world & that,
Life is nothing before honour."
Further, Guru Tegh Bahadur calls himself the "Guru of Hindus" and not "Guru of Sikhs". He says:

"They imprisoned me, the Guru of Hindus,
Whatever I said, they listened not"
These screenshots are excerpted from the highly acclaimed historical Sikh chronicle Guru Pratap Suraj Granth( written c.1843 CE) and can be accessed online.

Finally, the Guru's own passages preserved in Guru Granth Sahib corroborate that the Guru was every inch a Hindu.

He says- "This is the blessing of Vedas and Puranas, that you may meditate in the name of Hari"

The official name of this mosque is "Atala Devi Masjid".

It still stands on the pillars of the Hindu temple that originally stood at this site.

The temple was destroyed and its material was used in the construction of the Mosque. Egyptian?


"The original name of Jaunpur was Yavanapura".

"Even in the 19th century, no Hindu called it by the name 'Jaunpur'".

"The local Sharqi Sultans were great destroyers, and every mosque in Jaunpur was built on an existing Hindu temple"

- Archaeological survey of India report


"There is a Sanskrit inscription dating back to 8th century in the Southern Gate of the Jaunpur's Jami mosque".

"There is at present not ANY trace of old temples standing, for the Muhammadan conquerors did their work of destruction with unusual completeness"

- ASI report


"After destroying Karar Bir temple, Firoz Shah saw Atala Devi temple.

He ordered the temple to be destroyed immediately.

But Hindus violently attacked the workmen & pelted the emperor with stones.

Hindus were initially victorious"

- Tarikh I Jaunpur, translated by Pogson


"But fresh Muslim troops arrived from Jaunpur Capital Zafarabad.

An order for slaughter was issued.

Thousands of Hindu infidels became food to the d0gs of death. The river Gomati ran red with Hindu blo0d. Yet, Hindus did not refrain from fighting" -

Tarikh I Jaunpur
Cut the crap!

Your stupid & dishonest verbal gimmicks notwithstanding, the undeniable fact is that Buddha indeed compared Brahmins to dogs & concluded dogs were better.

Even traditional commentary on the verse says "Buddha comes Dogs to Brahmins, and Dogs come out better" https://t.co/1Aks88MSMX


To begin with, even the name of the Sutta is "Sona Sutta"( Dog sutta).

But this Sutta has nothing to do with Dogs. It is a rant against Brahmins. Dogs feature only when they have to be compared with Brahmins.

And every comparison concludes that Dogs were better than Brahmins


What is this Sutta about?

It is about Buddha's stereotyping and generalisation against Brahmins.

He begins by saying that Brahmins of his time mated with females of all backgrounds. He compares Brahmin sexual mating pattern with that of dogs.


Here Buddha condemns Brahmins of his time for intermarrying with other varnas/communities and compares them with dogs who mate with every breed.

This is not an innocent comparison. Sexual behaviour of dogs is known for its licentiousness and

This is the reason why words like "k*tti", "bit*h" denoting dogs is used as a grave sexual insult.

Although modern Buddhists flaunt egalitarianism now, for the historic Buddha intercaste marriage was a horror that amounted to licentious social behavior resembling dogs.

Create a short shutdown ritual (hat-tip to Cal Newport). Close your laptop, plug in the charger, spend 2 minutes tidying your desk. Then say, "shutdown."

Separating your life and work is key.

1/“What would need to be true for you to….X”

Why is this the most powerful question you can ask when attempting to reach an agreement with another human being or organization?

A thread, co-written by @deanmbrody:


2/ First, “X” could be lots of things. Examples: What would need to be true for you to

- “Feel it's in our best interest for me to be CMO"
- “Feel that we’re in a good place as a company”
- “Feel that we’re on the same page”
- “Feel that we both got what we wanted from this deal

3/ Normally, we aren’t that direct. Example from startup/VC land:

Founders leave VC meetings thinking that every VC will invest, but they rarely do.

Worse over, the founders don’t know what they need to do in order to be fundable.

4/ So why should you ask the magic Q?

To get clarity.

You want to know where you stand, and what it takes to get what you want in a way that also gets them what they want.

It also holds them (mentally) accountable once the thing they need becomes true.

5/ Staying in the context of soliciting investors, the question is “what would need to be true for you to want to invest (or partner with us on this journey, etc)?”

Multiple responses to this question are likely to deliver a positive result.
