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

Another weekend of low testing numbers. Yesterday, #India did only 710,000 tests(down from 987k on 26Sept and 1.34 Million the day before that. Officially, there were 82k new cases and 1039 deaths y/day. The total #Cornoavirus infections has crossed the 6 Million mark. Image
In a World league table, #India is fast catching up on current Number 1 USA. Image
There are those who argue that for its size of population India has had far fewer infections compared to some countries. But in a global context 18% of the world's cases occurred in India. Image

The first lynching:
Five years after the murder of Mohammad Akhlaq, there is no remorse in his village. There is a sense of menace. Today on September 28, its five years since Mohammad Akhlaq was lynched in Bishada by cow vigilantes.
#RememberingAkhlaq
#Thread
An Indian Express reporter went to Bishada after three years of the lynching to see if there was remorse, regret, or sadness about what happened. The lynching forced out of the village its only Muslim family. It had been their home for more than 70 years. Bishada is so urbanized
that it is almost a small town. As soon as he entered the village, he started asking where he could find the house of Mohammad Akhlaq. He asked shopkeepers and passersby and whoever he asked responded with hostile silence or pretended they had no idea who he was talking about.

🚨BREAKING: self-claimed “billionaire” @realDonaldTrump paid only $750 in federal income taxes in both 2016 and 2017.

Trump paid ZERO income taxes in 10 of the previous 15 years—largely because he *reported LOSING much more money than he made*.

#Fraud
nytimes.com/interactive/20…
🔥The @nytimes **GOT TRUMP’s #TaxReturns extending over more than two decades** for Trump personally and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization, including detailed information from his first two years in office.💥

Trump’s finances are under stress—huge losses + hundreds of $millions in debt coming due he personally guaranteed. And a 10-year audit battle with the IRS over a $72.9 million tax refund he got after declaring huge losses. An adverse ruling could cost him >$100 million.😎

How India became global leader in #polioeradication efforts?

This was enabled by world class surveillance system for detecting Acute Flaccid Surveillance in India. Districts which were detecting less than expected minimum of AFP rate per unit population were strengthened. 1 of N
In response against #COVID19 in #India, we seem not to use our own successful model. Instead, I see districts and states with poor reporting of cases (and therefore missing many deaths) are celebrated as success models. By now, if your are not reporting, there is a problem. 2of N
There should be a revised strategy. Define number of cases/million (CPM) as a standard unit. Compare metros, urban areas & districts based on a minimum CPM. If districts are not detecting cases, review & strengthen. A huge #inequity issue for now; vulnerable suffer more. 3 of N

In an article published on Li Jian, retired Chinese lieutenant-general Wang Hongguang said India only needs 50,000 soldiers to “maintain” the LAC but it has “added 100,000 more soldiers in Ladakh” instead of withdrawing troops.
“India has doubled or tripled its troops near the Line of Actual Control; they are mostly stationed within 50km of Chinese territory, and they could easily cross into China in a few hours,” he said, saying China should be on alert for surprise attacks from the Indian Army.

Is #China behind #Pakistan’s plan to annex #Kashmir’s Gilgit-Baltistan?

Islamabad’s bid to make the area its fifth province will exacerbate military tensions with India

The gambit will be seen by #India and the #US as being greatly influenced by China
scmp.com/print/week-asi…
Pakistan’s move to change the status of Gilgit-Baltistan would feed Indian apprehensions that it might have to fight a high-altitude, two-front war against both China and Pakistan, the analysts said.

The region is also of key strategic importance to China.
Gilgit-Baltistan borders the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region and has been China’s sole overland access route to the Arabian Sea, at the mouth of the oil-rich Gulf, since the completion of the Karakorum Highway linking China and Gilgit-Baltistan to Pakistan in 1978.

This is of course - how most politely to put it - poppycock. Yes, the official so-called active cases count is dropping but that is not because India has the epidemic under control. New cases, officially, are at 85 k plus per day, deaths at 1100 a day.
Unofficially, of course, no one has a clue what the real numbers are. This is just the kind of false optimism and pseudo-science that today's Lancet editorial is all about. India is shoring up big real problems.

This fetish with recovered cases is a peculiar affliction of those who want to put a falsely positive spin on the #epidemic. #Coronavirus infection is an illness that naturally recovers, (unless it kills). Recovery does not mean a bounce back to vigorous health for 10-15% of..

#IslamophobiaInIndia is a MYTH.

#India was ruled by #Hindus in the Ancient and Early Medieval period.

It was in the 7th Cent. CE, that #IslamicInvasions began in the Indian sub-continent.

These invaders came with one objective: to proselytise non-believers (#Kaafirs).

(1/4)
#Islamic invaders from the Middle East/Central Asia invaded India.

🔸They tortured & killed #Hindus.

🔸They raped #Hindu women.

🔸They forcibly coverted #Hindus.

🔸They destroyed hundreds of thousands of our temples.

🔸They looted #India.

(2/4)
Despite all the horrors of the #IslamicRule in India, independent #India, unlike #Pakistan/#Turkey, chose to be a #Secular country.

Why?

Because #SanatanDharma doesn’t preaches hate for other religions.

#Hindus know how to respect other religions and they always have.

#India’s Brahmos missile: an added target in the air?

The Russo-Indian joint venture Brahmos Aerospace is reportedly developing a variant of the Brahmos missile designed to engage airborne early-warning and control aircraft. 👍🇮🇳
iiss.org/blogs/military…
At first glance, the notion of transforming a large, high-speed, sea-skimming anti-ship missile into a long-range air-to-air missile (AAM) might appear far-fetched. But, in the case of India’s Brahmos, appearances may be deceptive.
The reasons behind India’s interest in a very long-range AAM underline the importance of situational awareness & command & control in the air domain & the need to hold at risk an opponent’s capacity to generate an airborne radar-based air picture of friendly & hostile aircraft.

#China Is Paying a High Price for Provoking #India

For #XiJinping, the COVID-19 pandemic seemed like an ideal opportunity to make quick progress on his expansionist agenda.

By provoking India, he may have bitten off more than he can chew. By @Chellaney
project-syndicate.org/commentary/chi…
It wasn’t nearly as clever a plan as Xi probably thought. Far from entrenching China’s regional preeminence, it has intensified the pushback by Indo-Pacific powers, which have deepened their security cooperation.
Xi’s real miscalculation on the Himalayan border was vis-à-vis India, which has now abandoned its appeasement policy toward China.

India is ready to fight. It has now matched Chinese military deployments along the frontier & activated its entire logistics network for winter.
