A tweet thread.
It is a strange phenomenon. Not the way in which the judicial and criminal investigation processes have been subverted in India to arrest and oppress victims and punish civil rights campaigners. That is a travesty of justice and a denial of civil rights, alright
It is the brazenness with which such gross acts of egregious violation of constitutional principles and protections of civil liberties are carried out. It is the utter lack of regard for the niceties of due process. It is the widespread support for it among ordinary people.
So the mockery of justice of the #BhimaKoregaon activists's trial and incarceration, the arrest and false charges against #UmarKhalid and the many others falsely accused in the #DelhiRiots police investigation are not only tolerated but actually supported by many in #India

👇Hypocrisy on Drugs👇

1🔸When 2016 #UdtaPunjab film made to stop drugs & stopped by CBFC,whole media supported #Bollywood specially #ArnabGoswami backed #AnuragKashyap

🔸But today same Bollywood accused in Drugs are calling media & Arnab unfair🤨
2🔸#ShahidKapoor said Bollywood should educate Indian youth to get aware & stop them to taking drugs👇

🔸He was seen in #KaranJohar party, His costars #DeepikaPadukone #ShraddhaKapoor also caught in drugs episode still he not condemned anyone,is knowledge only made for film😜?
3🔸#MaheshBhatt & family who are giving heavy knowledge about drugs manipulation in youth just because her daughter film on drugs faced some issue is supporting #BollywoodDrugGang

🔸He dragged Gandhi, Ambedkar, Buddha but backing his #BollywoodDrugList members who consume drugs

.@SureshChavhanke @sardanarohit @awasthis @romanaisarkhan Seems Delhi Police chargesheet on #DelhiRiots lands nowhere! Surely conspirators hv bn given chance to escape,No strong points against Umar Khalid,Surely ppl in power want to use UmarKhalid as their real star campaigner
@mishikasingh Umar Khalid,admirer of BurhanWani,outside the jail is more beneficial for Bjp rather than inside the jail,as he keeps on doing things that do polarization for bjp! Sad to see Chargesheet will end up as "No 1 did #DelhiRiots" as No strong points against any 1.
@mishikasingh Various news reports hd reported that 1 Nasir criminal gang & another noted criminal gang shot 100s of shots during #DelhiRiots,I doubt any mention of them in Chargesheet or arrest of them @awasthis @romanaisarkhan @sardanarohit @SureshChavhanke

1: The arrest of ex-Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) leader, Umar Khalid by the Delhi police is another example of the crackdown on peaceful anti-CAA protests held by the students in Delhi. #UmarKhalid has been arrested under the repressive UAPA.

#DelhiRiots
2: The Delhi police is accusing Umar Khalid as being one of the main conspirators of the riots. Amnesty India had earlier in an investigative briefing pointed out on how the police have taken no action against political leaders who made hate speeches in the buildup to the riots.
3: Many students who took part in the peaceful anti-CAA protests are either being arrested and jailed by the Delhi police under draconian anti-terror laws or subjected to intense intimidation and harassment as they are called in for interrogation during the COVID-19 pandemic

1: After more than six months, the @DelhiPolice is finally investigating its officers who were seen kicking and hitting a group of five wounded men on 24 February, poking them with rifles and asking them to sing the Indian National Anthem.

2: Faizan was one of the 5 who were tortured by Delhi police. He was detained 36 hours without any charge. He was handed over to his mother after his condition deteriorated. He died a day later.

You can see our investigative video on this story here:
3: The ruthless treatment of Faizan by the Delhi police violates the international human rights standards that allow for force to be used only as a last resort, as much necessary to achieve the objective of such use and proportional to that objective.

Amnesty International India calls on the Ministry of Home Affairs to conduct a prompt, thorough, transparent, independent and impartial investigation into all allegations of human rights violations committed by @DelhiPolice.

The impunity must end NOW.
Various videos were posted by individuals on social media during & after the #DelhiRiots. @amnesty's Crisis Evidence Lab corroborated & analysed the videos for serious human rights violations. It authenticated these videos by verifying the time, date & location of the videos.
In addition, Amnesty International India visited the locations where the videos were shot & interviewed the eyewitnesses and survivors.

The new Amnesty International India investigation briefing on #DelhiRiots is now available: bit.ly/DelhiRiots2020…

NEWS: The @DelhiPolice personnel were complicit & an active participant in the #DelhiRiots. In the last 6 months not a single investigation has been opened into the human rights violations committed by the Delhi police -before, during & after the violence. amn.st/6010Gopyr
These violations include:

⚠️police officers indulging in violence with the rioters
⚠️torturing in custody
⚠️using excessive force on protesters
⚠️refusing to register FIRs
⚠️dismantling sites of peaceful protests
⚠️being mute bystanders as rioters wreaked havoc.

#DelhiRiots
The riots in North-East district of Delhi claimed the lives of 53 people, majority of whom were Muslims, & injured more than 500.

The first step towards ensuring justice for the survivors is to end the impunity that prevents @DelhiPolice personnel from being held accountable.

Dear Shri Rajdeep Sardesai,
If true, the interview will affect ongoing investigations.
I appeal to you to hold back the tape till the agencies complete investigations.
Colluding with a suspected criminal may not be ethical journalism.
Please don't do this to Sushant Singh Rajput.
Please handover the tape to the CBI with a copy to NCB and ED. It is evidence.
We will thank you everyday for that.
If you go ahead and put the tape on air then you are not only risking your credibility but the channel too might lose popularity after an initial spurt in TRP.
A channel grows on the hard work of journalists. There are reporters who toil on their beats everyday, anchors who know their ethics and countless crew members who put days and nights together to get breaking stories on air.
This one tape has a potential to destroy that goodwill.

This is from the book, #DelhiRiotsTheUntoldStory

However, the fact of the matter is : @sioindia was founded in 1982 and SIMI was banned in 2001!

Another gem from the book, '#DelhiRiots 2020: The Untold Story'. Of course, without any reference or citation !

Yesterday #bloomsbury , scrapped the book written by Advocate @advmonikaarora ji on #DelhiRiots ,because some elements in our nation didn't want this book to get published. A #thread on some Anti-Hindu books that have not been banned yet :
(1/14)
In the past many years,there are thousands of books written,movies made,series aired which have demeaned Hindus in different matters .From changing the facts in a book to changing the entire narrative of the fight to mocking our beliefs,we have been targetted subtly.

The scrapping of the book written by @advmonikaarora Ji is not just another event,it is a very important event as it shows the anti-Hindu nature of various platforms and we as Hindus need to be united against this.

Some examples of anti-Hindu Books :
