Twitter Web App : The real name of Sehwan was Shivistan (land of Shiva).Sehwan was a popular temple and Math (Monastery) of Pashupata Shaivism. It was later converted to a Sufi Shrine.A Shiva Lingam existed in the center of Dargah until 1970.
Snippet from historian William Dalrymples Nine Lives

Twitter Web App : If Sehwan Sharif is such a secular and multicultural place, why have they removed the original, ancient Shiva Linga from inside of Dargah in 1970 and buried it in an unknown place within its precincts?

Let people see this Sufi Dargah for what it really is.A former Shiva temple! twitter.com/libertysasia/s…

Twitter Web Client : Hey Swine,

LTTE is NOT a Hindu party. In its manifesto, LTTE defined itself as "Socialist and Secular". The ideology/religion of LTTE is same as yours. Secularism.

Do not keep proving again and again that you truly deserve your name. twitter.com/ashoswai/statu…

Twitter Web Client : When terror attack happened in Christchurch, they blamed blanket "right wingers" all over the world, even groups which had nothing to do with the attack.

Twitter Web Client : True Indology Yes, you are right..! Aadiparva, chapter 11, verse 13 reads
इदं चोवाच वचनं रुरुमप्रतिमोजसम्‌।
अहिंसा परमो धर्म: सर्वप्राणभृतां वर ॥११.१३
Next verse-
तस्मात्प्राणभृत: सर्वान्‌ हिंस्याद्‌ ब्राह्मण: क्वचित्‌।

"धर्म हिंसा तथैव च:" isn't from Mahabharata, concocted later..!

Twitter Web Client : The second verse धर्म हिंसा तथैव च: is fake. It is neither found in Mahabharata nor in any other pre modern Hindu literature. It was recently fabricated by a fraud Baba. twitter.com/vijaydevji/sta…

In response, Shivaji invaded Goa.He asked four Christian priests to convert to Hinduism. On their refusal, he beheaded them. He completely destroyed Portuguese Goa.
