#Thread on what has turned out to be a five-part investigation from Bihar on how the police have brutalised muslims for participating in the anti CAA and NRC protests in the town of Aurangabad. Some have been terrorised for merely living close to the protest site
#CAA_NRC_Protest
In the first part, firstpost.com/india/in-bihar… I wrote how the police indulged in religious profiling, barged into houses, asked Muslims if they wanted Azaadi and even manhandled women in the absence of female constables. They arrested 46 people on the day.
The second part looked at the video footage where the police are caught on camera vandalising public and private property, for which the police had blamed protestors firstpost.com/india/watch-in…

There is a process to derailing a people's movement, in this case, the anti-#CAA_NRC_Protest the Modi-Shah-led Central government did not really expect, or at least not to this extent, and I'd like to put all that I can think of at one place, in this #thread.
1) Pitting one against another.

Oldest and easiest trick they use. And it's quite easy in a country like India because we are so diverse that sometimes I feel this idea of a "nation" is a farce. Racism, casteism, majority's minority complex, and many other factors enable this.
How do they do it?

a) One religion against another. In this case, easier, Muslims against every other religion. Isolation and alienation.

Best example: "They chanted "Hinduon se Azaadi". What do they mean? They want to kill all Hindus?"

They know nuance is for the elite.

Sharing because this poster -- seen at the ongoing #CAA_NRC_Protests in India -- is really upsetting some Hindu right-wingers. While others rail and scream, we analyze. So a few observations about the poster, those inspired by it, and those upset by it:
I see two posters -- one with women and words and a second with a shattered Nazi swastika. Let's start with the top one.
Three women, wearing bindis & hijab, symbols of Hinduism & Islam, respectively; w/ varying skin tones. In that, I see unity as people who differ in religion, ethnicity, region stand together.

The haters see dominance. There's little room in their worldview for unity in diversity

A poem by Dilip Chitre, from the film Ardh Satya is very relevant as the #CAA_NRC_Protest grow

चक्रव्यूह में घुसने से पहले,
कौन था मैं और कैसा था,
ये मुझे याद ही न रहेगा.

चक्रव्यूह में घुसने के बाद,
मेरे और चक्रव्यूह के बीच,
सिर्फ एक जानलेवा निकटता थी,
इसका मुझे पता ही न चलेगा
चक्रव्यूह से निकलने के बाद,
मैं मुक्त हो जाऊं भले ही,
फिर भी चक्रव्यूह की रचना में,
फर्क ही न पड़ेगा.

मरूं या मारूं,
मारा जाऊं या जान से मार दूं,
इसका फैसला कभी न हो पाएगा.

सोया हुआ आदमी जब,
नींद से उठकर चलना शुरू करता है,
तब सपनों का संसार उसे,
दोबारा दिख ही न पाएगा.
उस रोशनी में जो निर्णय की रोशनी है,
सब कुछ समान होगा क्या?

एक पलड़े में नपुंसकता,
एक पलड़े में पौरुष,
और ठीक तराजू के कांटे पर,
अर्धसत्य.

This thread is for Non-resident Indians in America that support the #CAA

Today I want to tell you the story of a man called Bhagat Singh Thind.

He was born in 1892 in colonial Punjab. In 1913 he went to the US for higher education and enlisted as a soldier for the US Army
in 1918 during the First World War. He may have been the first turbaned soldier in the US Army. His unit was called Washington Company No. 2, Development Battalion No. 1, 166th Depot Brigade.

At that time in the US, South Asians faced immense racism and discrimination.
This is Bhagat Singh Thind. Photo taken from saada.org.

Shehla Rashid’s spiral into Islamism from far-Left positioning is unsurprising.
World over, Islamists started using Left as cover to look cool, sneer at ‘Rightist’ critics of Islam, and hide bigotry. Never once religion exits their minds.
#IndiaSupportCAA #IndiaDoesNotSupportCAA
Good when Islamists like Shehla Rashid out themselves. Many youngsters believe #CAAPotests are ‘liberal’, that this fake ‘liberalism’ is a ticket to the cool milieu, getting invited to cool parties, getting laid.
Likes of Shehla are sold to them by media as ‘secular’ dissenters.
Outing of ‘liberals’ like Shehla Rashid for what they are — rabid, simmering Islamists — helps. Some youngsters, who aren’t afraid to think, get disabused.
Shehla is right. #CAA_NRC_Protest was pure Islamist agenda from start. ‘Liberals’ just wouldn’t stop gatecrashing the party

@swati_gs Hello Ms Swathi, I would like share my experience of being a minority in a minority institute. I studied medicine in Mangaluru, Karnataka. It was a minority institute. In 2004/2005 I stayed in hostel. During holy month of certain community the mess was divided accordingly.
@swati_gs One day at evening dinner one of my Christian friend requested not to have veg food as he felt it was mixed with meat! I was shocked as I said it can't be! He was sure that it was meat and not anything else other than Beef! I had no words to describe my feeling!
@swati_gs Later he showed me the meat in vegetable curry! One of my orthodox friend had already had it and he ran to wash room and started to make himself sick. Later went to warden who behaved as if it's not a big deal! I was angry, tearful and frustrated! No seniors or mess rep came!

1/13 A quick thread on how NPR/NRC/CAA could impact Indian citizens, especially dissenters. #CAA_NRC_Protest #NRC_CAA_Protest

After reading this thread by @sonaliranade, a few things became clear.

This monstrosity is the road to North Korea.
2/13 Bear in mind it's gonna take a lot of resources to prepare the NPR in the first place. NPR is one layer and NRC is the layer on top of NPR. CAA is the filter that excludes "foreign" Muslims whilst giving refuge to "foreign" non-Muslims.

But what happens once NPR is built?
3/13 This also has an economic angle: If you're rich, disenfranchising you isn't possible without consequences, so they'll just send ED/IT/CBI to harass you or increase GST compliance requirements. This mainly targets middle class/poor Indians.

See this.

இத்தனை ஆர்ப்பாட்டங்களினூடே இன்னொன்று கூட நடந்து விட்டது...

CAA pass பண்றதுக்கு முன்னாடி அமித்ஷா மணிப்பூரில் சில தலைவர்களை சந்திச்சிருக்கிறார்.. மணிப்பூரில் போராட்டங்கள் எதுவும் நடக்க கூடாது என்று கேட்டுக் கொண்டார்.. பதிலாக அவர்கள் ஒரு demand வைத்திருக்கிறார்கள்...
குடியுரிமை பெறுகிற பெங்காலி இந்துக்கள் மணிப்பூருக்குள் வரக் கூடாது... அதுக்காக ஐ.எல்.பி (ILP) அமுலப்படுத்த வேண்டும்.
அமித்ஷா அதை ஒப்புக் கொண்டார்.. அதற்கான மசோதாவை கடந்த திங்களன்று Parliament ல பேசி எப்போதும் போல அர்த்த ராத்திரியில் ஜனாதிபதி அதில் கையொப்பமிடவும் செய்திருக்கிறார்.
அதை ஆமோதிக்கும் விதமாக செவ்வாய் கிழமை மணிப்பூரில் பொது விடுமுறை அறிவித்திருக்கிறார்கள்...

அடுத்து...

CAA bill pass பண்ண பிறகு திரிபுராவில் போராட்டம் துவங்கியதும் அவ்வூர் தலைவர்களை தில்லி அழைத்துள்ளார் அமித்ஷா... they demanded the same.. ILP..

.@narendramodi We used some of the brains you asked us to. You are right “Jhoot chalne wala nahi hai, desh svekar karne wala nahi hai”, lies will not work, this country will not accept utter lies such as those you liberally peppered your speech with.

#ModiLies #CAA_NRC_Protest
1. You say hate on Modi, why are you hating on India, don’t burn the poor person’s hut and so on and so forth

Those you presumably accuse of hatred, are neither hating on you, the country or burning the poor person’s hut.
Dissenting against unconstitutional laws and state acts of violence that breach basic constitutional values are founded on exercising and protecting the fundamental right to liberty - they are born out of love for this country or the idea of what it was to be at least.

Twitter wars take on a specially Indian hue. Until late last night, #IndiaHatesModi was the top trend.

Someone must have decided this was terrible optics for the PM's Delhi rally, because "NonVegetarians_Are_Killers" is today's (slightly baffling) top trend.
Fascinating. With under 17K tweets, pro-CAA tweets are trending at numbers higher than #CAA_NRC_Protest — which has 108K tweets.
And with under 17K tweets, pro-Modi tweets are trending higher than the anti-Modi tweets, at 101K tweets and rising.
Twitter's perfect algorithms.
+ How does Twitter arrive at its India trends? Some answers here — recent tweets definitely matter.

1) Despite video evidence of mass arson, violence and sexual assault on women, the media romanticized the thugs as non violent.

2) Despite video evidence of Islamists, jihad inspired and anti Hindu bigots leading the mayhem, media dubbed them as secular.
1/3 #CAA_NRC_Protest
Realization that media is on their side no matter what they do - spread misinformation, destruct, kill, cause mayhem - has emboldened to be this brazen in criminality.

Talking of peace and then unleashing terror - all on camera.



#CAA_NRC_Protest 2/3
The support by Indian mass media and endorsement by life long anti Hindu forces in western world has perhaps made the entire opposition think that this is their time to do through violence on the streets, what they could never do electorally - defeat Modi. #CAA_NRC_Protest
