"Kasam Ram ki khate hai, hum bhi Raavan marenge." Raavan here is @BhimArmyChief . Here's what's happening in #Hathras a year after a Dalit girl was gang-raped and 'forcibly' cremated in the dead of the night by UP Police. Stay with me. #Thread
The man in yellow scarf is Pankaj Dharvaiyya, chief of Rashtriya Savarana Parishad, who had last year threatened to kill Bhim Army Chief Chandrasekhar Azad in police presence. The video had gone viral. He had then taken out a rally in support of the four Thakur rape accused.
A year later, he is out on bail and threatening to kill again. Two days back Bhim Army Chief Chandrasekhar Azad visited the Dalit family who has been living under CRPF protection since a year. Dharvaiyya didn't approve. So he reached the village but was not allowed.

A thread on the Hathras gangrape and murder case.

Yes, in Sept 2020 an extraordinary act of violence took place but it doesn't end there.

This is the story of what happens to a dalit family after they fall out of the news cycle.

You can find all our stories and videos here.
On Sept 14, Asha (name changed) was found naked, bleeding and barely alive.

She had apparently been gangraped.

After 2 weeks of fighting for her life, she died. Alone & quietly.

This is the story of what happened.

@akanksha_kumar3 and I write.

newslaundry.com/2020/09/29/hel…
“My daughter is still alive. She is begging for justice. She wants to go home. Help us” Asha's father pleaded

@akanksha_kumar3 & I met her family much before her case became headlines. As we filmed, Asha lay meters away from us, fighting to stay alive

UP ATS and Police hv arrested national head of the #PFI’s HIT SQUAD- Anshad Badruddin & Firoz—(national trainer on BOMB-MAKING). They wr carrying highly explosive material. 1 of them ws also involved in #Hathras case. Hd plans to eliminate” 20-25 #RSS workers across many states.
PFI hd received Rs 120 crores during CAA protests. Yet it ws allowed a space to breathe. High time this organisation is banned. Both the guys r martial art experts & frm Kerala. Why am i not surprised? 🙄
#PFI’s general secretary,K Rauf Sharif might also be picked up frm Kerala. The guy hd added fuel to the fire of Hathras case. Also let us not forget the bonhomie CPIM govt shares PFI. I expect a drama around his arrest frm Kerala.

Thread #Hathras

Sources : The charge sheet filed by CBI in the #HathrasCase is filled with flaws and three innocents have been roped in as accused, in spite of them having strong alibis.

While the prime accused did commit the act and there is strong evidence against him, 1/n
the remaining three were implicated only based on their ‘tower location’ of their cell phones. Two of the accused who are implicated were employees of a dairy located a kilometre away from the scene of crime (SoC) and witnesses working in the dairy, 2/n
had given statements that the two accused were working in the dairy at the time of crime. The other innocent accused was present in a place away from SoC and witnesses had deposed that he too was not in the SoC.

CBI comprises fine officers with investigating skills. 3/n

Supreme Court bench headed by Justice NV Ramana hears a plea against the publication of the #Hathras victim photograph in the media. Plea also questions the delay in trial of sexual violence cases
#SupremeCourt
Justice Ramana: These issues have nothing to do with law. People want to do such things. Right to freedom of expression is there. There is enough law for this. It is unfortunate that such incidents happen
SC: We can't legislate law after law. Its not for the wisdom of the court to legislate here. Make representation to the govt

..BJP will not leave any margin for error henceforth and let any form of sabotage occur.

For us it looks like just another State Elections, but the elections in the state affects the math in Rajya Sabha. Now we also want numerous laws, bills, amendments to be passed..UCC,....
Population Control Bill etc etc.

To successfully secure this aspect, one also needs figures in the Upper House. What we aren't discussing in this heat is the RS elections in UP. But the Centre and the BJP core committee has to be vigilant enough to make sure they stand tall ..
with fortitude.

Every action that happens in interlinked. If some incidence occurs in one part of the country, it's tremors are felt at the other end which we won't be even aware of..but Modi and his team has to be on their toes.

Modi can't afford to falter at this stage.

SC had also sought to know if the family of the victim had chosen its legal representative.

Absolutely nonsensical comparison.

Bajaj has stated an intent to not advertise alongside hateful content. It is to uphold basic human values/decency. Plus Bajaj DID NOT troll/abuse the channels or editors, land up at their studios to threaten them. He didn't even NAME ANYONE.
Bajaj wants to stay away from content that is beyond reasonable doubt 'toxic'.

Those opposed to #tanishq, on the other hand, are opposed to the idea of inter-faith love. It's the sort of mentality that has made life hell for young couples in India. Even so...
...it doesn't stop at distaste for what the ad showcases. In the case of Tanishq there is a real attack online and offline, managers being trolled, people landing up at the store threatening staff, hurling abuses at them.

Let’s talk about Ecosystem. I’m putting it straight without mincing words.

What happened in #Hathras case and #Rajasthan priest death case?

- National politicians from the Congress and other parties visited the victim family.
- No national leader of BJP went to Rajasthan. (1/n)
What about the compensation?

- Opposition demanded more and gave some compensation in Hathras. Yogi govt gave ₹25 lakh, govt job and flat.

- No serious pressure on the Rajasthan govt by the BJP. Gehlot is keeping mum.

(2/n)
What about the protests and dissent?

- In every major city, protests for Hathras were organised by the groups and demand of resignation of Yogi.

- No protests on ground for Rajasthan. No demand of resignation. Not even in a BJP ruled state.

#Hathras my views on it are based on a lot of inputs. The preparators thought and assumed that another #ShaheenBagh like situation, what they failed to note was , the government had stored on its memory the issue and here they were prepared. #PFI , the #Bheemagency and it's
2. agents were unprepared for this. As it emerges it's clear that there was no rape involved and the victims kin were equally involved in the gruesome murder which was an as they term it - an honour killing - I fail to understand any honour in killing unless it's one against

Unusual points of the SC hearing in #Hathras case:
1. SC questioned the locus of Sr. Adv. Indira Jaising's client [an intervener] but not of the Petitioner. [Though, none of them are affected parties]

2. SG [for State of UP] did not consider the petition as adversarial.
3. Does it mean that the petition is collusive?

4. The SC ignored the precedence of sending the petitioner to jurisdictional HC -Allahabad HC. Despite the jurisdictional HC having taken suo motu cognizance of the very same incidence & notices to UP State have already been issued
5. Judicial restraint in so far as the HC's jurisdiction is concerned - was conspicuous by its absence.

6. On the same day, the same Bench, in other matter, indicated its' choice to observe the judicial restraint and wanted the Petitioner to approach the jurisdictional HC.

[Hathras gang-rape] Conspiracy to defame Govt, have requested CBI to take over probe to obviate fake narratives: UP Govt to Supreme Court

“There has been orchestrated efforts to malign the image of Government on social media by attributing baseless comments and building up a distorted narrative on the Hathras case", says the UP Government.

#Hathras #HathrasCase #SupremeCourt
On #Hathras VICTIM's CREMATION, UP Govt says: Due to extraordinary circumstances, unlawful incidents, District Administration was forced take the extraordinary step of cremating the victim in the night in the presence of her family who agreed to attend to avoid further violence.

In the #Hathras case, #UttarPradesh Govt has filed an affidavit even before the #SupremeCourt has heard the PIL or agreed to admit it.

The reply alleges an insidious propaganda by political parties, a section of media to malign the Yogi Govt despite a "diligent probe".
This affidavit claims political parties, a section of media is trying to give a communal & casteist colour to #Hathras incident & hence, the #SupremeCourt should monitor the #CBI probe in a time bound manner. This will ensure a free probe besides weeding out false narratives.
About the midnight cremation of the #Hathras victim, UP Govt says she was cremated in the presence of her family members, who agreed to attend in order to prevent further violence. Affidavit adds it was done to maintain law & order.

First hearing of the PIL is around 12.30 PM

#Hathras Some crucial points that the UP govt wants you to forget. They are trying their best.

1.) Illegal cremation at 2.30pm against the will of family and against Hindu tradition. A clear case of human rights violation. Neither SHRC, NHRC or NCW or SWC have taken cognisance.
2.) Phone Tapping of Media and victims family - who authorised this? And why and how was it leaked to favourable members of the godi media?
3.) no word on Independent probe against DM for allegedly threatening family members by allegedly saying that ‘media will go in a few days.’ Also, Narco test of family
