CAA is a benign piece of legislation, narrowly tailored to address a specific issue: Centre to Supreme Court #CitizenshipAmendmentAct #CAA_NRC_Protests #CAA
Centre's affidavit starts by quoting the Passports Act of 1920 and a host of other legislations. It also refers to the Nehru Liaqat Agreement was signed by Heads of Governments of India & Pakistan to protect religious minorities. #CAA_NPR_NRC

Anti-#CAA protesters' hoarding case in the #SupremeCourt: SG Tushar Mehta appears for UP Govt as he points out 57 indicted for destruction of public properties include rioters of both communities.

Mehta says Allahabad High Court order is based on alleged violation of right to privacy but privacy will have a different dimension when a person chooses to commit certain acts in public.

Judges ask:

* Question is whether state has a right to put posters of those involved in public places

* Can right to privacy be waived for all times to come even if they have been involved in certain acts of rioting

#economiccrisis , #socialinstability #autocraticgovt #utterdenialofModimadeeconomicblunders #Delhigenocide #kashmirissuffering #CAA_NRC_NPR all of these & much more have taken a toll on most of us peace-loving Indians who reject hate/bigotry & 1/n
believe strongly in our Constitution.

I am at loss of words.

Many instances of Hindus helping Muslims & vice versa give a ray of hope. But it is equally disturbing that we get impressed by & HAVE to share such acts of brotherhood even after 75 yrs of independence. 2/n

Majeed Ullah Khan (@MBTparty President) Statement on #SupremeCourt Refusing Interim Stay on #CAA; Challenges @AmitShah to Visit Ongoing #ShaheenBaghProtests to Face Public Instead of TV Debates. #CAA_NRC_Protests Read Full: /1
He contended that #ConstitutionofIndia is “Common Sense” codified. It's clear that #CitizenshipAmendmentAct goes against numerous Articles. It's appalling that Court deferred hearings in refusal to put interim stay on draconian #CAA and modified #NationalPopulationRegister /2
People’s trust in a truly secular, non-partisan #SupremeCourt is wavering. Moreover, refusal on interim #CAA stay has common public concerned regarding growing, free reign of a bigoted, right-wing #RSS-#BJP specter looming over nation that we continue to battle on all fronts. /3

Here is a classmate of mine who has answered back to my article in Indian Express. Here is my response in a thread. 1/15…

#ShahinBaghProtest #CAA_NRC_Protests #IndiaSupportsCAA
1. I haven’t publicly bashed or given out names of my fellow alums out of respect- even though I easily could have on a national platform. You didn’t return the favour- bashing my name and platform- like your ‘anguished’ liberal colleagues. #ShahinBaghProtest #CAA_NRC_Protests
2. Speaking of anguished....Calling me a ‘disgrace’ on my Facebook wall for voicing my opinion....well, I hardly call that ‘anguished.’ Rude and un-objective.

. @KTRTRS talking about CAA protests. He goes on to say, something is wrong hence there are protests. Why are Muslims subjected to secular tests?
For people who do not understand telugu, I'll tweet the translation done by @SayeedMA
KTR Talks - Why do you think we have this protests? Do you think people are protesting for no reason? Why are people doubting only CAA Act? In the past, Modi government had passed controversial bills such as #TripleTalaq, #370 etc and there was no protest? Why only this?
We asked the Modi govt in Parliament that u are willing to grant Indian citizenship to minorities from other countries, why singling out Muslims? What's wrong in what we asked? We never got an answer to this. I heard a BJP leader from WB talking about shooting the protestors?

Addl Sessions Judge Kamini Lau tears into #DelhiPolice prosecutor while hearing bail plea of @BhimArmyChief Chandra Shekhar Azad.

As prosecutor objects to Azad's #Tweet calling for protest at Jama Masjid, Lau retorts: "Jama Masjid isn't in #Pakistan. Why can't people protest"
Lau added: "Even those in #Pakistan have a right to peaceful protest. To protest is a constitutional right. When there is no violence, people can't be stopped from protests."

With no answers & information of other FIRs coming forth, ASJ expresses surprise, seeks all information.
Another important statement from the judge: "Inside the parliament, things which should have been said were not said and that is why people are out on the streets. We have full right to express our views but we cannot destroy our country."

For those of you not alerted to what’s happening in India, every day the news gets progressively worse. The only heartening moments are to see how strongly so many Indians are standing together in protest, across any divide, to uphold the values of its secular constitution.
There are so many images of the protests and solidarity as Indians of every persuasion stand together to uphold the idea of India, and the ideals of India. This one, in front of the Jama Masjid in Delhi, singing the national anthem. #CAA_NRC_NPR

Many lawyers are protesting in various ways at the vandalism on display towards India’s constitution.

Friend: I oppose #CAA because it is discriminatory on the basis of religion.

Me: Okay, but so is Reservation on the basis of caste.

Friend: They faced discrimination on the basis of Caste, hence reservation.

Me: Ditto, they still FACE DISCRIMINATION on the basis (1/2)
of religion hence citizenship.

Friend got intolerant, and I laughed! 2/2

A country which grants upto 75% reservation in opportunities to certain citizens on the basis of CASTE, talking about EQUALITY is LAUGHABLE! Image

MHA seeks to clear air on the #CAA_NRC_Protests . Top MHA sources, "Assam NRC was diff because it was governed by Assam accord and had a cut off date of 1971. All India NRC will be under the Citizenship act where provisions of naturalisation, birth already protect citizens.
The fear is meaningless that Muslims will be en-mass thrown out. It is not possible under law." Top MHA officials.
.@HMOIndia on states refusing to implement #CAA . "Granting citizenship is the domain of center.
Under citizenship act collector was the nodal officer to take applications etc. Under CAA we have the legal provision for appointing a separate nodal officer.
