A thread: Shades of bigotry.

1. The relentless online #Islamophia & #Muslims hatred prompted a chat on family WhatsApp group. I said, unlike #IndianMuslims who come across several #Hindus in their lifetime, given d demography, a large number of Hindus have no opportunity...
2. To meet or interact with #Muslims; esp those who come with family traditions of #RSS. Hence, they tend to believe all kinds of propaganda because they grow up listening to that & never get a chance to see that it's all a lie. To this, my sister in law said, but what about...
3. My neighbour. I was speechless. My brother's family has been neighbours with this family for 10 years. They are d closest of friends, eating in each other's homes, women having post-breakfast tea together everyday. Celebrating birthdays/ anniversaries together etc. Yet,

CAA debunked in 10 tweets by @AyeshaHadi

Govt claims that CAA shouldn't be combined with NRC & there is nothing wrong in CAA by itself.

Let's see some basic reasons why CAA is dangerous even without NRC.


1. It directly violates article 14 & has no legitimate State aim or reasonable classification thereby rendering the amendment unconstitutional and void ab initio.


2. It excludes Muslims from Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan solely on the basis of religion which violates constitutional values like secularism.

It makes no provisions for persecuted atheists or those not from majoritarian religions.

Majeed Ullah Khan (@MBTparty President) Statement on #SupremeCourt Refusing Interim Stay on #CAA; Challenges @AmitShah to Visit Ongoing #ShaheenBaghProtests to Face Public Instead of TV Debates. #CAA_NRC_Protests Read Full: /1
He contended that #ConstitutionofIndia is “Common Sense” codified. It's clear that #CitizenshipAmendmentAct goes against numerous Articles. It's appalling that Court deferred hearings in refusal to put interim stay on draconian #CAA and modified #NationalPopulationRegister /2
People’s trust in a truly secular, non-partisan #SupremeCourt is wavering. Moreover, refusal on interim #CAA stay has common public concerned regarding growing, free reign of a bigoted, right-wing #RSS-#BJP specter looming over nation that we continue to battle on all fronts. /3

Countering Islamophobia

A hard hitting perspective by @SwalihaAsiya

Fellow Indians, it is time to address the elephant in the room. You know what I am talking about.

Though this may make you uncomfortable, I assure you that having this conversation is the need of this hour.
Why is Mangalore/India becoming increasingly Islamophobic? Why are there media sites on FB openly using communal slurs on Muslims? Why are Muslims called terrorists?

Why is large portion of India's internet community making allegations without evidence to malign #IndianMuslim?
Because the facts remain unchanged

1. Law enforcement does discriminate & it did, during the #AntiCAAProtests that happened in December

2. Attack on Masjids, in Delhi and Mangalore happened without any provocation or condemnation.

3. Media channels acted as RW propaganda tools
