The #SupremeCourtOfIndia has made some strong remarks about the abuse and weaponization of the #EnforcementDirectorate for political purposes.

It has also strongly censured a lower court judge in a case where bail was not given.

(1/)
The Supreme Court reminded the lower court judge of a fundamental principle of #jurisprudence: bail is the norm, jail is the exception. The Court made the scathing observation that the said judge should go back to law school.

(2/)
These are only two examples of how #BJP governments have been abusing power and bending the law to suit their desired ends.

One could point to the extrajudicial measure of "#bulldozer justice," which has been practiced by the BJP governments in #UP, #MP, and in #Delhi.

Independent India has always been a vibrant democracy, except for the #Emergency years of #IndiraGandhi from 1975-77. That it has taken a decisive turn to religious majoritarianism under the #BJP and under #Modi since 2014 doesn't change that fact. (1/)
Democracy is not necessarily congruent with liberal values or even human rights. #Slavery was legal both in the democracy of Great Britain as well as the USA for almost a hundred years since the US' formation. Even a White woman was not considered equal to a man in America. (2/)
#Blacks in the #US did not have equal rights even after the abolition of slavery for another 100 years under #Lincoln, but we still think of the US in #1960 as a democracy.

#COVID19 ICU pts & #LongCOVID survivors tell me they wanted to get #Vaccinated but had immense pressure from family/friends NOT to…All but 1 said, “I should have protected myself & stayed safe.”

What’s our best approach? Read👇
2/ A significant portion of Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Staff remain #unvaccinated. Early data: bit.ly/3gOdSLi. Reasons include mistrust of govt & big pharma, potential side effects, and racism. Staff’s close contact w pts makes it essential to study their reasoning.
3/ N=193 staff from 63 Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) were studied. The best way to overcome misinformation on #Vaccination from social media is to model specific scenarios & prepare positive approaches, NOT guilt or shaming. Let’s look at specifics…

@KamalaHarris Please stick to what you know, as a fully qualified Virologist, I ask you not to make judgements about this virus you have absolutely no expertise on: FYI #SARSCoV2 is colour blind (it has no eyes and cannot differentiate Black from White or Latino)!!
#Covid19usa Image
The reason your people are disproportionately affected by #Covid19usa has nothing to do with the nature of this virus but the physiology of the host it entered (which it had no prior knowledge of, only deal with once inside)!
Ask yourself what is it about #USA that makes Blacks & Latinos especially susceptible to #SARSCoV2?! I can tell you: it ain't their skin colour! Our blood is the same colour and I suspect our bodies' cells (the surface of which the virus spike protein attaches to) are, too?! 🙄 Image

The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"

First, #Virginia's governor defends #infantacide, now this yearbook photo from college where he is dressed in #blackface surfaces a few days later.

#Kavenhaugh did nothing. Rep. #SteveKing's statement was taken out of context by The New York Times...
but their crimes were being #Republican.

#Democrats are literally getting a pass for baby murder and blatanty saying black people are stupid clowns.

....
Since so many #blacks continue to support Democrats regardles what they say or do, the shoe obviously fits for them and all other #Democrats are sick #hypocrites.
