Abusive Desi Parents Part 6/13493850943543

I was on a group video chat with my friends last night for less than an hour, and my entire family made a huge fuss and yelled about how I “wasted three hours” talking to my friends. 

I haven’t left my house all week. I haven’t seen or talked to anyone besides them, and I don’t even talk to them for that long. Yet, somehow,  I don’t deserve to talk to anyone who is actually and respectful towards me. I deserve to be shamed for seeking out kindness.

Snowden Posts Document Alleging US Policy to Hack Foreign Political Parties
The US intelligence community allegedly authorized the hacking of foreign political parties, according to a 2010 national security document posted by whistleblower and former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden on Monday.
By Sputnik

The document, originating from the Director of National Intelligence and dated July 16, 2010, purported to identify “foreign-based political organizations” allegedly targeted by US intelligence.

“Our government specifically authorized the hacking of political parties. Mistakes were made,” Snowden said in a Twitter message.

​Among them were Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and National Salvation Front, the Pakistan Peoples Party, the Lebanese Amal group and the Indian Bharatiya Janata Party.

The document was released in the midst of a significant hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), in which dozens of emails were publicly released showing DNC efforts to obstruct candidate Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign to increase rival Hillary Clinton’s chances to become the Democratic party’s presidential candidate.

DNC and other US sources have claimed Russian responsibility for the hack.

In 2013, Snowden leaked a cache of intelligence documents revealing widespread US surveillance practices at home and abroad. Snowden is currently living in exile in Russia, and faces charges of espionage and theft of government property in the United States.

70,000 Indian Muslim clerics issue fatwa against Isis, the Taliban, al-Qaeda and other terror groups | Asia | News | The Independent

Clerics said the terror groups were ‘not Islamic organisations’ and said they were a threat to humanity

Nearly 70,000 Indian Muslim clerics have signed a fatwa against Isis and other terror groups saying they were “not Islamic organisations”.

Around 1.5 million Muslims visiting a shrine dedicated to a Sufi Islamic saint near the city of Ajmer in north western state of Rajasthan during the Urs religious festival have signed a petition against terrorist attacks.

[70000 muszlim írta alá, 1,5 milliós tömeg tüntetett és hirdetett fatwát (szigorú vallási büntetést és elítélést) az ISIS, az Al-Quaida és az összes többi terrorszervezet ellen.

Ezek nem iszlám szervezetek, hanem az emberiséget fenyegetik, ami ellen minden muszlimnak végtelenül tiltakozni és küzdeni kell…]

Mohawk Council of Akwesasne Does Not Recognize Newly Formed “Mikinak Tribe”

The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne has been informed that a newly formed group named the “Mikinak Tribe,” is fighting for the recognition of their members as Status Indians. 

This self-identified group, which is based out of Beauharnois, Quebec, seems to have ulterior motives that are money driven, and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne does not recognize or support this group as a First Nation Community.

During a radio interview on July 8, 2016 with the K103 Partyline Talkshow, Guillaume Carle, who identifies himself as the National Grand Chief and National Spiritual Elder of the Confederation of Aboriginal People of Canada, noted that he was “a warrior from Akwesasne,” and that he had “approached Akwesasne,” and is “working together (with Akwesasne).” Additionally, in a June 29, 2016 interview with APTN, there is a nameplate that clearly displays Grand Chief of Akwesasne during a “Mikinak Tribe” meeting.

Grand Chief of Akwesasne Abram Benedict notes that “the Mikinak tribe has not approached the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne nor do we have any affiliation with them. This self-identified group seems to be claiming to be a Status Indian in order for tax exemption and money-driven motives.”

Lise Brisebois, a “Chief” of the “Mikinak Tribe,” has threatened businesses in Candiac, Quebec that if their members are refused to honour the Mikinak ID Cards, they could potentially blockade the highways, according to an article that was printed by the National Post on July 7, 2016.

Dennis Chaussi, District Chief of Kawehno:ke for the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, articulates that this identifies how the group “is attempting to benefit themselves by utilizing Indian Status. Members of Akwesasne are very passionate about our background and heritage, and the ‘Mikinak Tribe’ is making a mockery out of First Nations Groups that have fought for their people, their culture and their inherent rights for hundreds of years.”

In order for an individual to become a member of the “Mikinak Tribe,” they have to pay $80 and show proof of their “Indian Gene,” regardless of how far back it is in their ancestry, according to Carle.

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada noted in the APTN interview “while these cards convey membership to an organization, they do not convey Indian Status.”

Grand Chief Abram Benedict also added, “While Council appreciates the support of any organization or individuals that backs First Nations Inherent Rights, this group is only trying to benefit themselves -not true First Nations people.”

Sketches of a fairly new character. I say fairly cause he was made way back in the spring of this year. He’s part of a group of artist assassins, and my first Indian character. As I upload these old sketches, I’m getting up to speed with drawing new ones in my new personal sketchbook.

sooner or later most groups end up messing up. How hard is it for them to stay in their lane? They're not kids either most are 18-23 with one member who is 16-17.

Also, there are like 2 maybe three groups who haven’t done anything problematic. The only ones I can think of right now are gfriend..? Maybe Apink….I’m not too sure about them

honestly if they were gonna use indian influence they could have looked up info about india. honestly every group has done something or will probably do something bc they are human. its just hard for some fans to acknowledge idols’ mistakes bc the romanticize them
