Thread: The Horrific Killing of Ehsan Jafri in the #GulbargMassacre
On 28 February 2002 Ehsan Jafri was gruesomely murdered by a feverish mob. Slaughtered along with him were around seventy women, children and men who had taken shelter with the man....
...whom they had believed was influential enough to save their lives from a colossal armed mob baying for blood.
But he was dragged away by the horde, his limbs were cut off from his body before he was burned. His family could not even locate his remains.
He was a renowned poet, labor leader and politician who was killed in infamous #Gulbarg Society massacre in Gujarat 2002 riots. #Modi, then the CM of Gujarat, was accused of doing little to stop the anti-Muslim riots -an allegation he has always denied.

One such society is Gala Gardenia in South Bopal in #ahmedabad which runs a community fridge to help the hungry.

Residents drop off their surplus food, fruits, vegetables and groceries in the fridge for the needy to pick it up.
"By now, the construction workers in the area know about the fridge in our society. Most of them approach the security guard and get the food packets collected. We have also started storing cold water bottles for the needy", says a resident.

It’s 4.00 am right now and I just came back to Ahmedabad from Kolkata after having a wonderful and memorable trip with my friends. However the joy was short lived as I was stopped by a PCR van near Shyamal Cross Roads (1/n)

#ahmedabad #police #ahmedabadpolice #gujarat
They first asked me if my bags were checked by police at the previous stoppages, to which I said no because I wasn’t! Most of us know what do they search for when you get out at night. It has to be liquor, always. (2/n)
It’s their duty and I don’t mind being checked or cooperating when it comes to following rules. However in this case I told them that I am not carrying anything because I am coming from a domestic trip and I know the rules. (3/n)

During my 21,000 kms walk, I clicked these two pictures randomly in two different cities and interestingly around the same time of two different days.

The first picture I clicked in Vellore when I was crossing a bridge and found it this clean.

When I was in Ahmedabad few weeks
ago I saw this bridge and due to its condition I clicked it.

Now, if you see in terms of GDP, Literacy, Population, Income, Ranking etc Ahmedabad leads in comparison with Vellore.

But literacy is completely different from education, people in south are more “educated”
as they understand the value of public property.

Their educated mind gives them sense of ownership and make them more responsible towards public property.

That’s why you will find roads, toilets, Schools, Building, lot more cleaner anywhere in southern states.

🪡 While upholding the findings of the Special Investigation Team that gave a clean chit to @narendramodi in the #ZakiaJafri case, SC added that SIT had “come out with flying colours”.

Q: When exactly did Modi learn of the massacre on 28 Feb 2002—and how well did SIT quiz him?
2️⃣ In his reply to SIT in 2010, Modi claimed he learnt of the #GulbergSociety massacre only at a meeting that evening, at 8.30 pm.


While a mob of thousands attacked a Muslim pocket in #Ahmedabad, the CM—who *also* held the home portfolio—was unaware for 5 full hours?
3️⃣ The implausibility of Modi’s defence is brought out by former @IndianExpress and @timesofindia legal affairs editor Manoj Mitta.

In his 2014 book, ‘The Fiction of Fact-Finding: Modi and Godhra’, Mitta reveals how #SIT bought into Modi’s claim with barely any challenge.

#HeatWaves are soon to become the new normal for #Mumbai.
While steps are being taken to make the city climate-resilient, impacts of #HeatStress are sprinting ahead threatening Mumbai's food security, public health, ecosystem & economy.

#HeatStressMumbai 🔥 A THREAD Image
#HeatStress happens when the body heats up excessively leading to dehydration, dizziness, fatigue, etc.
#HeatWaves in #Mumbai has led to an uptick in:
heat-related illnesses & deaths
power outages
crop failure
drinking water shortages
risk to wildlife
Global evidence demonstrates clear causal links b/w heatwave intensity & #ClimateChange

As per @rocksea, data for 70 years shows that “the number of heatwaves is directly in response to #GlobalWarming.”

"I remember the first day of my job. A group of 15 people came to our restaurant. I served them & earned their appreciation. I have learned many languages too. Apart from Marathi, I know Gujarati, Hindi, English & Nepali. This is the beauty of working in this industry. #IWD2022 Image

She chose Pratham's #hospitality course at Ralegaon as a career option against her parents' wishes. "My parents were not ready. But I wanted to gain experience, work in different cities and see the outside world. And I am happy where I am", she says. #InternationalWomensDay2022

It was a Hindu-Muslim love story that leapt out of the flames of the #GujaratRiots of 2002 in #Ahmedabad's Naroda Patiya. It then went through the usual tortuous turns, so typically Indian, and the next two years saw the couple fight tough battles and go through waves of pain.
2. The police in Ahmedabad had turned matters worse for the lovelorn couple. @rajkamaljha
3. Even as the Muslim girl was illegally held at a home for the destitute despite turning 18, the authorities and police in #Ahmedabad had remained undecided about who should start her release procedure. #Gujarat #GujaratRiots #2002riots

27-02-2002: It broke out like an epidemic of viral flu. We may have been through several such epidemics, but nothing prepares us for the slaughter of men, women, children and even domestic animals. Never forget that the history of the human race is cruel. Watch this space...
I spent seven years (1998-2005) working as #Gujarat correspondent of @TheWeekLive. The pieces I'm posting here were written mostly in 2002 and chronicle the sequential turn of events, as I witnessed them that fateful year, beginning from where it all begun…
The above was an exclusive cover story for The Week's July 7 2002 issue. Took about three months to piece together the jigsaw puzzle that was #Godhra investigations at that point amid the mayhem and blood letting all around. I wrote about it all much later

The 7-Day Moving Growth Rate
-#Mumbai: < 2% for over 4 weeks, city ready phase 4?

-#Delhi & #Ahmedabad: <2% for 2 weeks.Phase 2 or 3?

-#Bengaluru, #Chennai & #Kolkata: little over 2% Phase 1?

Phases 1-4:

Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is increasing.
CFR= # Deaths / # Positive cases
- ↑ in numerator: Poor detection and treatment --> higher deaths
- Low Denominator ↓: Under-reporting of COVID Cases due to poor testing.

Higher the CFR in the city, poorer the TTT strategy.

The review of positive Cases, active Cases, and death moving growth rate in juxtaposition will give wholistic view on the situation.
#Bengaluru & #Delhi have some work to do.

Defendants claim that BAPS is innocent, & Cunha Construction middleman, an American company is the one who went rogue.
Several among us have been to BAPS #Atlanta, #Houston, #Chicago, besides #New Jersey sites. REALITY CHECK from the ground - a thread
CHRONOLOGY -1 Offer of employment in #Rajasthan, 2. Workers made to sign papers at BAPS #Ahmedabad office 3. Confinement at US construction sites, 4 rules over work conditions. In all of this workers interface is with BAPS representatives, never heard of #Cunha
Blaming the #middleman is the oldest trick of trade. Powerful industries get away by dumping blame on the smaller fish. So it is important that we say together #BAPSnotmiddleman

"Each day, the government reports more than 300,000 new infections, a world record, & #India is now seeing more new infections than any other country by far, almost half of all new cases in a global surge."… #CovidIndia
1. "Millions of people refuse to even step outside — their fear of catching the virus is that extreme. Accounts from around the country tell of the sick being left to gasp for air as they wait at chaotic hospitals that are running out of lifesaving oxygen."
2. "The sudden surge in recent weeks, with an insidious newer variant possibly playing a role, is casting increasing doubt on India’s official Covid19 death toll of nearly 200,000, with more than 2,000 people dying every day."
