आनंद तेलतुंबडे यांना अटक-काय आहे वास्तव?
१. आनंद तेलतुंबडे यांना केलेल्या अटकेला कोरेगाव भीमा चा संदर्भ आहे.कोरेगाव भीमा मधील हिंसेला भिडे-एकबोटे जबाबदार होते असा आरोप झाला पण त्याची काडीचीही चौकशी भाजप सरकारने केली नाही
२.एल्गार परिषद,जी वर्णवर्चस्ववादी..(1/8)
पेशवाई पराभूत होण्याचा, २०० वा सोहळा साजरा करण्यासाठी आयोजित केली होती. तिला भाजप सरकारने हिंसेसाठी दोषी धरले.

“I earnestly hope you will speak out before your turn comes.”

#AnandTeltumbde poses a threat that makes the Brahminical state cower. A voice unafraid to stand with facts, no matter where the arrow points.

His arrest is anti-democratic

In solidarity with the Dalit scholar who has spent decades unflinchingly calling out the anti-caste prejudices of the society and the system.

His+ journalist Gautam Navlakha's impending arrest lays bare the govt's plan to weaponize this pandemic against those it considers foes.
As even conservative states across the world release incarcerated persons, the state's insistence on arresting dissenting voices+ summoning them on cross-city travel (incl. @svaradarajan) is directly jeopardizing their safety & intentionally subjecting them to harm.

1: Amid the spread of #COVID19, the Supreme Court of India’s order directing the arrest and imprisonment of two human rights defenders, #AnandTeltumbde and #GautamNavlakha within a week, is disappointing.…
2: On one hand, the court acknowledges that overcrowded prisons present a serious threat and recommends the release of prisoners during the pandemic and then it directs 2 activists who have been critical of the government to surrender before the police and to be sent to jail.
3: Both Navlakha & Teltumbde are above 65 years old & have underlying heart ailments. The 2 activists are charged under a draconian counter-terrorism law that has repeatedly been used to silence government critics.
