Basically an illiterate or an educated fool that supports people of corruption and/or liberal who are against the Pakistani state.
I think, Patwari may mean something like Agent (in bad sense) in Pakistan. But, we have Patwari as a family title among Bengali Muslims. It is probably from that family's relationship with boat ferrying long time ago.

Ek Desh ka Boli, Dusra Desh ki Gaali, that is the thing.

Freedom of expression doesn’t mean freedom to insult, defame, mock past or present people. French govt. felt offended that Turkish president called Erdogan crazy, by their excuse they should be.
I for one could care less about religion nowadays but even I would never mock the prophet.

Ya, what is patwari ?



It's a surname here, but very rare... Related ?
He means Potoharis, a subgroup of Northern Punjabis. Most people from "Azad Jammu and Kashmir" are ethnically Potoharis, and they comprise a big part of Pakistan's diaspora in the west, especially in the UK like Sylhetis do.

Unless of course, he's talking about the title 'Patwari', which means accountant.

OMG.
Patwari is someone who keeps land records in Punjab, and they have been used to screw over people by powerful, especially the small landowners. They were also a tool used by Pml N to well screw over and black mail people for political gains.

For us it literally means what I said -- each might have their own definition. :)

France warns citizens to be cautious as Muslims seethe over Prophet Muhammad cartoons

Last updated on October 27, 2020 at 09.59 pm


Supporters and activists of the Islami Andolan Bangladesh, an Islamic political party, take part in a protest calling for the boycott of French products and to denounce the French President Emmanuel Macron for his comments over a cartoon of Prophet Muhammad, in Dhaka, Bangladesh, October 27, 2020. (STRINGER)


Supporters and activists of the Islami Andolan Bangladesh, an Islamic political party, take part in a protest calling for the boycott of French products and to denounce the French President Emmanuel Macron for his comments over a cartoon of Prophet Muhammad, in Dhaka, Bangladesh, October 27, 2020. (STRINGER)

France warned its citizens in several Muslim-majority countries to take extra security precautions on Tuesday as anger surged over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and the head of Russia's Chechnya region said Paris was pushing people towards terrorism.

In Bangladesh, thousands of protesters marched through the capital, with some stamping on a poster of French President Emmanuel Macron, and Iran summoned the French charge d'affaires to register a protest over the cartoons.

But in a sign that some countries want to limit the fallout, Saudi Arabia - while condemning the cartoons - held back from echoing calls in other parts of the Muslim world for a boycott of French products.

The row has its roots in a knife attack outside a French school on October 16 in which a man of Chechen origin beheaded Samuel Paty, a teacher who had shown pupils cartoons of Prophet Muhammad in a civics lesson. The caricatures are considered blasphemous by Muslims.

The French government, backed by many citizens, saw the beheading as an attack on freedom of speech, and said they would defend the right to display the cartoons.

Macron called the teacher a hero, and he pledged to fight "Islamist separatism", saying it was threatening to take over some Muslim communities in France.

France's foreign ministry on Tuesday issued safety advice to French citizens in Indonesia, Turkey, Bangladesh, Iraq and Mauritania, advising them to exercise caution. They should stay away from any protests over the cartoons and avoid any public gatherings.

"It is recommended to exercise the greatest vigilance, especially while travelling, and in places that are frequented by tourists or expatriate communities," it said.

INSTAGRAM WARNING

Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Russia's majority-Muslim region of Chechnya, addressed Macron in a post on Instagram.

"You are forcing people into terrorism, pushing people towards it, not leaving them any choice, creating the conditions for the growth of extremism in young people's heads. You can boldly call yourself the leader and inspiration of terrorism in your country," Kadyrov wrote.
Asked by Reuters to comment, an official in the French presidential administration said: "We won't be intimidated and we put on notice those who sow hatred, which in Kadyrov's case, is unacceptable."

The images of the Prophet were first published years ago by a French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, whose editorial offices were attacked in 2015 by gunmen who killed 12 people.

Since Paty's killing, French people protesting in solidarity have displayed the cartoons in the street, and they were projected on to a building in one city. French officials have closed a Paris mosque they said was fanning anger over the cartoons.

Calls for a boycott of French goods were trending over the weekend on social media in Saudi Arabia, but officials have not backed them, favouring a measured approach.

A Saudi foreign ministry official said on Tuesday the Gulf state condemns all acts of terrorism, an apparent reference to Paty's killing.


"Freedom of expression and culture should be a beacon of respect, tolerance and peace that rejects practices and acts which generate hatred, violence and extremism and are contrary to coexistence," the official said in a statement.
The daily Arab News on Tuesday cited the head of the Saudi-based Muslim World League, Mohammed Al Issa, as cautioning that an over-reaction "that is negative and goes beyond what is acceptable" would only benefit "haters".

TURKISH UNITY

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Monday asked his compatriots to stop buying French goods and accused France of pursuing an anti-Islam agenda.

Previous Turkish calls for boycotts of foreign goods have fizzled out, but Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank on Tuesday urged businesspeople to enforce the boycott. "We must show a strong stance," he said.

In a rare show of unity, four Turkish parties, including the main opposition group, issued a joint declaration saying Macron was being "reckless" in pushing freedom of expression, and his stance could trigger harmful conflict.
In Jordan, around 50 protesters gathered outside the heavily guarded French embassy in the capital, Amman.

"This is not freedom of speech - when other people's religions are infringed upon," said former member of parliament, Dima Tahboub, referring to the stance taken by Paris on the cartoons. "This is an obvious attack."

France has been on high alert following the beheading and areas around the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower in central Paris were evacuated briefly on Tuesday in security alerts. There was no evidence the alerts were linked to the cartoons row.

This is not about India. Stick to the topic. They don't seem too concerned about hanging when they gathered in numbers. Lets see how the leader wants to lead South Asia.
Did you notice how there were volunteers in uniform from the Jamatis themselves, who ensure that the protest stays peaceful??

Don't compare the behavior of your murderous Sanghis even to the worst in Bangladesh.

There is no comparison...

Just a simple boycott of French products is good enough.

Bangladesh should also re-consider giving Thales the contract for our Civilian Air Radar.

We should ideally consider countries other than France - but that is not going to happen.

lightoftruth is banned.
Sir, you have made this forum a miserable place giving free hands to BS mods. No serious member is participating on this forum now. It was a star forum in old days. I loved reading serious discussion between Indian, Chinese and Pakistani members. But now all serious members already left this forum. A serious forum should always be for a serious discussion with tolerating manner. Opposite view should be welcome. But this has been become a troll forum like all Indian forums. Racists are given free hands. I hope you bring back old days.

Woah! That's a lot of people for a protest against a foreign nation.
If India wasn't so oppressive it's 300 millions would be protesting too.
Even France wouldn't mind such expression of freedom in Bangladesh.
I am sure India would love their people to follow the French freedom of expression by allowing their females to wear skirts:-

LOVE to my Bangladeshi brothers, you showed love of Prophet Muhammad saws. Thank you.

:smitten::smitten::smitten:

Alright bruh, how about we start to innovate and invent to make Muslims actually strong again ?

Remember when the Muslim world was more progressive?

We need to be more better, and take the good things from Islam while leaving the bad or barbaric things to the side.


lets reform

Patwari was a title that the British used to allot to Indians who'd be tasked with collecting land revenue I think. As most south Asians are bigots, these mofos kept the titles that their white lords gave them and passed it onto their kids as a surname.
We have enough Patwaris in India as well.
