Justice Kaul says today it's one legislation people have grievance with, tomorrow it may be another but the question is not about that, the question is if public area can be used for protests.

Hi @SreenivasanJain, since you sought proof, follow this thread.

The extent of fear-mongering, radicalization & poisoning of the minds of impressionable kids that's going in #ShaheenBagh is deeply disturbing.

Hope you keep your promise & play it on your channel at Prime Time.
This child at #ShaheenBagh protest says - “Hum Modi aur Amit Shah dono ko maar ke rahenge ab!”

Clearly, the kid has been brainwashed by her handlers to such extents that she is calling for the assassination of country’s PM & HM at such a tender age.

This girl at #ShaheenBagh says - “Modi ko log gaali nahi denge toh kya puja karenge?”

An idea was planted in her mind that she would be sent to a detention camp where her clothing shall be snatched & no food shall be provided. Brainwashed?

A thread on protests, and attempts to discredit them.

In 2015, I was one of the many to report on the writers' protest after the murder of Dr M M Kalburgi. Hundreds of writers joined in spontaneously, returning awards, "everything except the garland".…
+ In retrospect, this was one of the first warning flares of what was to come. The writers had it right when they sounded the alarm about rising intolerance, less space for free speech, and violence against dissenting voices.…
+ It was 2015. We were not yet fully used to the IT Cell's tactics, or to the spread of fake news, disinformation, the "godi media". When this happened, most writers were taken aback and unprepared for the "award wapsi gang" tag.…

The ruling Congress government in Punjab has passed a resolution in the State Assembly demanding scrapping of the controversial CAA. Hope all the states which ruled by anti BJP govt no matter who is @INCIndia or @asadowaisi 's alliance party should pass such resolution.
And not to make any type of contradiction between us unlike @NitishKumar who voted to support CAA in parliament and issued the notification of NPR
and in this way @PunjabGovtIndia become second in list after @CMOKerala for passing the resolution to scrap the controversial CAA meanwhile such act comprises within the territory of union list.

When #RedJihadi nexus started boycot of Hindus who support #CAA & closed down their shops in protest to #CAA ; Hindus woke up & started opening shops in Kuttyadi, Kozhikode

Yes, we too need to survive & have no intention to cow down to #RedJihadi threats
Many Hindu shops were forced to close down in past two decades due to lack of funds to compete with petro dinars and riyals pumped into market.
We are now paying the price for our lack of unity and tendency to go behind short term benefits by ditching the age old shops of 'Kumarettan' & 'Sathishettan' for the posh 'Supermarket'

It is hugely problematic that so called ‘lefties’ are even contemplating supporting Barry Gardiner.

His sycophantic support for Modi and his recent intervention over the Kashmir motion was a disgrace.

He used his privilege to stoke tensions in MY community. #EmpireIsOverMrG
I urge people who regard themselves as ‘left’ to seriously consider what bullshit they’re supporting with this ‘Barry for Leader’ crap.

The message it’s sending to our Muslim comrades. The #CAAProtests deserve our attention - being ‘internationalists’ is not just about the EU
I’m asking as an Indian Hindu to really think about the message your support for Barry Gardiner is having on our Muslim comrades.

The Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens in India by Modi is the biggest attack on Muslims India has seen. #CAAProtests

Thread on #JNUViolence.

1. So it all started with winter registration which were opposed by left wing student organisations.

They tried to stop other students from registration but many students still went for the registration.
2. As per @timesofindia on 3rd January masked students went inside Information centre of #JNU and made servers dysfunctional.

The JNU registrar said
"The act affected ongoing registration process" (see the 3rd picture taken from TOI)

[Keep in my who was opposing registration]
3. But many #ABVP students still went for registration.
[Note : ABVP is opposition to Left wing orgs in students' politics in JNU]
on 5th Jan Left wing students attacked ABVP students in Periyar hostel.
[confirmed👇by @NDTV,a left wing news outlet]

Thread on #facialrecognition & police surveillance databases. #CAAProtests

Facial recognition is a new technology, cops have start adopting since 2015. National Crime Records Bureau recently issued a tender for national facial recognition system.…
But what people are missing out is facial recognition system will be a part of Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System. Again this system became operational post the Mumbai 26/11 attacks to link all police stations starting with the one in coasts…
CCTNS will link all police databases, so that any police department can access criminal records of other departments. All of these criminal records are essentially with NCRB, which is why they are issuing this tender for facial recongition.

Here's another CCTV video from Uttar Pradesh's Meerut, near to where the violence that killed the five men on Dec. 20 took place, showing police hitting a CCTV camera at a shop on that street. #CAA2019 #India #protests
One of the 5 who died in Meerut that day was Zaheer Ahmed, shot in the head as he was sitting next to a beedi shop.

“I don’t know who engaged in the violence, but my husband didn’t,” his wife said. “Why did they kill my innocent husband? How can they kill innocent people?”

Priyanka Gandhi & all student protests seem to be focused solely on #CAA. But #NRC is the bigger danger. Do people realize that? In 2018 INC boasted it had created NRC & had deported 82728 Bangladeshis whereas the BJP had deported only 1822. #CAA_NRC…
The #CAB is a decoy. It's a red herring - that was bound to cause #CAAProtests to errupt to draw attention away from #NRCBill. CAB is to NRC what the #Dataprotectionbill is to #Aadhaar. The real danger is from Aadhaar. Like it is from NRC. @Stupidosaur?
Explanation :The #CABBill does not specifically say it will not give citizenship to Muslim immigrants. If it does, the #CAA will straight away go to court as it's blatantly Unconstitutional. But the #NRC which is random, can easily target more Muslims if that's BJP govt's aim.

#CAAProtests clear pattern is emerging..
First Congress, Commies, Namazwadi parties tried to defeat the bill..Once they failed, #MediaCorp was pressed into service..When that too failed, #StudentsCorp was called in..After #StudentsCorp was exposed,
+ ever useful and usual idiots of #FilmIndustryCorp is pressed into the service..#ActivistCorp has already moved the SC.
So far the main objective of Breaking India forces, of inciting communal riots across India has not succeded..There is no blood and mayhem on the streets.
+ Now, #LetterWritersCorp will be pressed into service..About 2000, retired armed force personnel, scientists, activists, lawyers, sportstars, playwrights, industrialists etc would be pressed into service..
This pattern is repeated from last 5.5 years..

A thread to CAB and NRC, as per my understanding. Feel free to educate me more :
CAA is constitutional if we talk about it separately, without taking NRC into the picture. As, it doesn’t exclude anyone from taking refuge. It’s just about the special inclusion of the persecuted minority, and giving them citizenship.
Anyone can become citizens of India by naturalisation process of 12 years. For persecuted minorities it has been reduced to 5 years. Although, the govt. still hasn't made rules how to identify minorities from three countries if they don't have any document.

Having interviewed many grassroots activists who have organised 100s of protests with even over 10,000 people, I've learnt that takes YEARS of mobilising, conversations, leadership, to keep rallies non-violent, especially when the causes are often life & death. + #CAA2019
Twitterati condemning and giving sage advise to students to keep calm, not slap a cop when he slaps a student, probably don't recognise how HARD it is to be non-violent in the face of asymmetric power of the state. + #CAA2019
We can't forget that a student's slap is not equal to trained cops in riot gear shooting bullets, tear gas & a history of quelling protests of all kinds with cases of "kidnapping govt officials", "blocking govt work", causing nuisance etc. #CAA2019
