Did she top the UPSC Examination with SC Rank or General Rank??? What on Earth is all the fuss about her?

I respect each and every IAS officers but I strongly hate Tina Dani for having married with a Muslim.
Grow up. Man made god and religions. He is a boy any parents want for their daughter
Truely said god didn’t created any religion and muslims too are indians i m a hindu but u respect muslims.
And social science have always taught this to us that all religions are same and love is afterall love.
very great madem. india wants u like intellectuals, so in history always india defeated by muslim & issai invader for only jayachand liku u.
so why hindufobia man, i have seen a lots of ias, ifs, nda, upsc, iit, medical toppers belongs to our community and they wear very poor, it is not a great thing for us like u.
Anybody can marriage anyone irrespective of religion. Tina Dani takes its right decision, it is its own choice, Athar Amir is eligible for her. If you a IAS aspirant, you should know that there is not written in Constitution that you can’t marriage different religions people.Religion haters (narrow minded people) can’t crack UPSC.
how many people are toppers in ias,ips,iits & medicals in ur religion.u wear all jihadi hindufobia minded religious fools ans are jihadi minded and will be, not only india but also for world.so teach ur community first what do u mean by upsc .
She is a learned person. An IAS, not a fanatic and prejudiced person like you. Muslims were rulers of India. The present vast extent of india owes to Muslim rulers. Jodha Bai was married to Akbar the great. My mother is a Hindu and my Father a Muslim. I haven’t ever seen a person as nice as my father. He was the one who helped stand all my maternal kith n kins. So be ashamed of yourself that you are among those who have filthy and sleazy thoughts…
u fool u already tells ur reasons and low falls why u are hindufobia. bhikari muslims rule india due to only jaychands like u .they kills crores of hindus , r*pe womens because they have no credibility. only forced womens to marry may be ? now 30 crored above muslims in india and telling we ruled india ok what is the percent of gdp they have.bhikari log ho aaj bhi hindu tex per subsidy late ho.see your most favoured nation pakistan kotari le ke ghumta hai bhikari no 1 and the mother land of terroists.
YES I SUPPORT YOU MAY BE THIS IS THE ONE OF THE LOVE JIHAD CASE

And ur my rolemodel
You can approach govt ias coaching centres around you and you can start it in a minimal cost
Very good decision for married ..becoz he. Is your true lover
I don’t think it that much inspiring ..bcz all the inspiration starts from the base of the family ..go thru the family details first…if she is from normal middle class general family or farmer then I would get inspired .. this is a reserved seat without much competition..
Erase this myth from your mind. Let you know that she had secured general rank in IAS.
Very accilent work you has done .i am so impressed for your success .first attempt and become an issue topper.
She has prepared for 5 years to become an ias topper.
Thodi aur bivaran prelims ki surooati preparation ki aur mark gain karena tips aur optional subject ke bare me charcha Mai keval interested your study methods so something you can broad story share for all persons and me

Hlo maam u r my role model … I also want to become an IAS
Not st she belongs to sc catagory
You were never my inspiration as due to your deeds.Being good in history….
bhai ya to sc hindu hona ka puri faida la ta hai lakin un logo ka dimak mai hate hi hota hai. aaj tek jin muslims na lakho hinduo ko mara, luta, rape kiya aur ya hum ko mitana ke liya kya kya ker ta hai sub jan ta hai.lakin itna nicha koi keisa gir sakta hai saadi jesi it’s not beliveable kya kabhi iska ulta suna hai, nahi kabhi nahi kyu ki muslaman kabhi change nahi hota hai.ias officer hua to kya hua insaan hai na,aaj ka din yad rekho rohit bhai kitna din ya saadi tikaga?
i am proud of only & only the great man sri narendra d.d.modi sir. because in 70 years only one man in india have the capacity to change every thing. he is the guru, philosopher, guide of ours
I am fan tina tabi You are my role model
If you want to be a successful person, don’t try to be another person, don’t loose your own personality. Ofcourse try to be a good person. Maybe you are good at something that your ideal person wouldn’t .Explore yourself, discover yourself try to figure out in what thing you’re good .May be in future you will realise that you’re better than all those people who you wanted to be.
हमे खुशी है कि आपने 1st रैंक हासिल की…
ये उन लोगो के मुँह पर तमाचा है जो सोचते है कि sc के लोग आरक्षण से ही नोकरी लेते है उनकी कॉम्पिटिशन पास करने की औकात नही है…
पर दुख इस बात का भी है कि जातिवाद के कारण आपको बड़ी पोस्ट नही मिली…
एक IASटॉपर को sdm की पोस्ट… फिर बड़ी पोस्ट के लिए कोनसा एग्जाम देना पड़ेगा
I am a very big fan of your 😊😊😊😊😊
She having great knowledge in books and that’s why she became IAS officer but socially she have to learn more about .. what Muslim do.. and some liberals should know about history of Muslim and compare it with today generation of Muslim it’s same .. no one will believe your jokes liberals if you have such a big heart then marry your family member with them ..and you will know how good they are
I just want to say that God pls give me potential to work hard and do something for needy ones..its my childhood dream. I know shivay is with me…….thats it.🙏
Dear I want to be like u
Congratulations ..Tina Dabi
Bhaiya koi or nahi Mela aap ko pure sansar may
Bahut hi sarm ki baat hai
