There is a pattern to this violence & rioting that we have come to recognise.

It has little to do w/a democratic right to register protest against a Reform, Bill or scheme but more to do w/people who have lost power & are willing to burn the country w/their mercenary sidekicks.
Some pieces of the jigsaw:

#FarmersProtest that held the Capital & NCR region to ransom for a year
A motley crowd of goons, rented protestors & worse found favour with our Opposition parties, Rihanna,Mia,Greta,YoYa of coordinated gamcha fame, Khalistanis & their Canadian PM.

Do you know? What is main reason of stopping recruitment in army? It was due to #FarmersProtest . Surprised? Yes. Reports of many young soldiers and youths aspiring to join army from farming communities supporting #FarmersProtest made certain lobbies nervous. recruitment stopped
#TourofDuty is brain child of such nervous lobbies to dismantle such regimental pride of army.. This scheme plans to take away your pride, your self respect, your history and your political stakes. It will hit Mahar, Maratha, Rajputs, Gurjars, Ahirs, Sikh, Jat pride badly.....
Idea is to dismantle these social group based regiments with all India Class and that too hiring soldiers on contract so that they don't develop any pride. I am all for development of idea of India. I support inclusiveness and doctrine of equal opportunities but ..

Main Reasons @INCIndia lost in Punjab-

1. Internal fight within the party
2. Cong leaders winning in party’s name and jumping to BJP camp
3. Lack of Leadership
4. Outspoken Sidhu caught on camera many times
5. Selection of Dalit (Channi) leader only at the last moment (people
took it as a fooling tool)
6. Anger for @Akali_Dal_ on sacrilege and farm laws support (people knew party was still with the bjp and may go with the bjp after elections)
7. Wanted to give a chance to @AamAadmiParty
8. Media never showed but @BhagwantMann team was very active in
Rural areas.
9. People thought being cheated shuttling between Cong & SAD
10. Capt had a soft corner for SAD/BJP
11. Believe me voting is not the result of any freebies though aap may have included in manifesto.
12. Aap this time gave tickets to own workforce and not to

I have the privilege of knowing a wonderful human,a gentleman who has documented the #FarmersProtest from Day 1.His creativity wit & humour never ceases to amaze me .
Compiling a thread of his work
Caustic without being unsavoury.
Master of Fancy Dress⬇️
Of course he is a king of Fancy Dress ( with no clothes and brain of his own) he needs help with prompting ? @narendramodi
And has nightmares about his speeches too !!
He loves giving sermons about being “ Atamnirbhar” of course the mushroom eating cowards is so scared , he imagines threats where there are none ?

एक दवा जो लगातार सोशल मीडिया पर किया जा रहा है:

नरेंद्र मोदी ने माफ़ी मांग कर किसान आन्दोलन ख़त्म कराया और कांग्रेस ने किसानो पर गोलिया चलवा कर.

चलिए इन दावो की हकीकत चर्चा कर लेते है. #FarmersProtest 1/n
सर्वप्रथम, क्या किसान आन्दोलन ख़त्म हो गया? बिलकुल भी नहीं, उलटा किसान आन्दोलन और तेज हो गया, उन्हें प्रधानमंत्री की विश्वसनीयता पर ही संदेह है, 29 नवम्बर को किसान संसद तक ट्रेक्टर रैली निकालेंगे. #FarmersProtest 2/n
अब बात करते है इनके दावे के दुसरे हिस्से की, जो तस्वीर ये किसानो की बता रहे है वो है 2007 में पुलिस फायरिंग में मारे गए CPI(M) कार्यकर्ताओ की, स्थान है मुदिगोड़ा गाँव खम्मम जिला आंध्र प्रदेश की. #FarmersProtest 3/n

In case you're a non-Indian (or even an Indian) confused about what #Farmlawsrepealed exactly means and why everyone from Rihanna to Martina to Mia Khalifa were tweeting about it, here's a very simple thread laying out the simple facts.

60% Indians make a living through farming.
The modern Indian state plays a big role in agriculture, as a result. It tries to be the guarantor for all produce, set minimum support prices, provide a basic safety net. It's a progressive system put in place by INC people mostly. It has several problems too.
There are sectors of agriculture where government involvement causes more harm than good. And there are sectors of agriculture where government involvement causes more good than harm.

It's a complex world, right?

So anyway, Modi is always looking for some big "WIN".

Bhakt meltdowns galore 🤣🤣🤣
Best is all the "hmpf, so all you need to do to repeal laws you don't like is go out on the streets and protest non-violently" as if it's a bad thing. When it's democracy 101. But sanghis don't understand democracy or the idea of a republic where protests are a fundamental right.
"maybe we should also go protest on the streets for repealing laws we don't like" said another butthurt sanghi.

Umm, y'all have like a two thirds majority in the Parliament. And y'all are in the streets everyday already. You use violence. #FarmersProtest didn't.

farm laws to be repealed!

before anything else, i am thinking of the 700 plus farmers and workers who died protesting over the past year. lives deemed worthless to this regime.

#FarmersProtest
#KisanMajdoorEktaZindabaad
i think of the grandparents who froze to death. the journalists abducted. the farmers trampled to death. the activists jailed.
it’s almost a year since farmers from punjab began a long march to delhi in opposition to the modi regime’s corporate monopolization of agriculture. in the year since, we saw the resilience of the farmers and the oppression of the state.

Adv Tanveer Ahmed Mir rebuts Prosecution's arguments against #SharjeelImam who has sought bail in a case connected to #DelhiRiots before Delhi Court. "Sole indictment on the speech. Incumbent duty upon all of us to look at the speech... If it incident violence"
Mir argues in a case of #Sedition against Imam. On #NRC, Mir argues ultimately his client's speech talks about advocating of a policy like... "In a university if we don't debate public policies, where do we debate?" #sharjeel_imam #CAA_NRC #DelhiRiots
Mir: This is a criminal court. We don't go by inferences. I am not denying my speech. For the speech to fall under #Sedition... My friend can't have discretion to add his own thoughts and inferences. #sharjeel_imam #DelhiRiots
