On April 22, this user tweeted a video with the claim that Muslims pelted stones at a train after it "interrupted" their prayers. He later added two more videos to back his claim.

So what's the truth? let me break it down for you in this thread 🧵 1/n
Video 1: Youth pelting stone

For this video, I simply broke down the video into keyframes and performed a Google reverse image search. This showed two results that had thumbnails similar to the viral video.
2/n
I read the translated version of the article and it appears that this was done by students of a government college in Chennai? We cannot fully rely on Google translate so it needs more digging

1. In a welcome step, the Allahabad High Court held that putting up public hoardings with the names and addresses of anti-CAA protesters is a violation of protesters' right to privacy, afforded to them by the Indian Constitution and international law.

2. In the absence of any law permitting the publication of protesters' personal data, the Court also held the act to be against the principle of legality. It further said that the government failed to demonstrate how this action was necessary or what legitimate aim it served.
3. However, various public officials and elected leaders in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and other states continue to use similar intimidating tactics against peaceful protesters.

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".

bbc.com/news/world-asi…
+ 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.

hindustantimes.com/india/and-it-c…
+ 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.

NEWS: A hateful, divisive and dehumanising rhetoric has been unleashed on students and those protesting against the equally divisive Citizenship (Amendment) Act by our elected representatives.

India is becoming a dangerous place for peaceful protest.

amnesty.org.in/news-update/in…
"While students and other citizens of India have largely ensured peaceful protests across the country against the #CAA, political leaders have resorted to making hateful statements about the protesters” - @Avinash_1_Kumar Executive Director of @AIIndia.
#ShaheenBagh has become the epicentre of the anti-CAA protests in the country, it has largely been led by Muslim women.

The Union Home Minister @AmitShah in a campaign rally asked the audience to “press the button with such anger that the current is felt at Shaheen Bagh”.
