Until Indian booksellers keep displaying and selling more Mein Kampf than Annihilation of Caste, my birth country is going to keep flirting with fascism more than social justice.

Read Ambedkar. It's all free online. He still is THE most brilliant Indian scholar of all time.
Growing up in brahminical Pune, I was taught about Savarkar in excessively effusive ways and about Ambedkar in excessively condescending ways.

So we were told how Bhimrao studied hard. Beat odds. Wrote the constitution.

Everything Ambedkar I read was about him not by him.
I read mein Kampf (hated it), Gandhi's autobiography (liked it), Nehru's books (loved them), Savarkar (mixed feelings) in my teens.

I didn't even see an actual physical copy of an Ambedkar book in India until the 2010s!

I only really read Ambedkar in my 30s.

Jaising: The question is who was responsible for the violence?
Jaising: This is a case of cross-FIRs. There were 22 FIRs registered after the violence took place. This is a case of simplicter violence and not UAPA. That occurred because the people were restricted from paying their respect.

#Thread: I never wanted to explain myself but after 4 FIRs and one Rs 50,000 bounty post my release on bail in 4 other FIRs on my tongue, I believe it is important that some things are made clear. Even in Pune #ElgarParishad I spoke about collectively fighting the hate 1/n
and asked people from Hindu society to check on the radicalisation of their kids, hinted who are causing the rot in the society, et al. However, media as well as wokes of all political spectrums gave more attention to that one sentence without considering the speech 2/n
in its entirety. In the latest case, me saying JSR being used to terrorise people and it not being a religious slogan anymore is on the same lines. I'm not problematizing the content but the usage of the slogan. Hindus who truly believe it is their religious slogan 3/n

In its "investigation" of February's anti-Muslim Delhi Pogrom — which was sparked by @ianuragthakur's call to "shoot the traitors" & @KapilMishra_IND's call to "take to the streets" — Delhi police charge 5 academics, politicians, & activists instead.…
@Jayati1609, @_YogendraYadav, @SitaramYechury, @Apoorvanand__, and filmmaker Rahul Roy are all caught in an "investigation" that "morphed into what is being seen as a roving witch-hunt against students, activists & academics who have been critical" of #Modi's policies.
The "investigation" is strongly reminiscent of the #ElgarParishad case, in which academics critical of #Modi policies — like #HanyBabu — have been fingered for supposedly instigating violence at #BhimaKoregaon despite not even being present at the event.
