Young Educated Muslim boys and girls have always been pain in the eyes of the HindutwaRashtra regime.
Be it any political party, they have always designed and supported draconian laws to contain muslims in the name of law and order.

1/n
The government on a regular basis carried out planned #Genocide of Muslims which was never reported to the outside world.
After the #BabriMasjid martyrdom Muslims started questioning the political parties who pretended to be the messiah of Muslims.
That created a panic.

2/n
Laws like TADA,POTA,MCOCA were brought to picture.
Young Muslim men from #Kashmir and other parts of the country were picked up under false charges only to be found innocent decades after rotting in jail.
Many Muslim men were encountered to fuel the anti-muslim narrative

#TIL: Today I Learned about: The Exceptional Legacy of Hakim Ajmal Khan: Physician, Politician & Polymath. Delhiites may aware of the Ajmal Khan Market and Ajmal Khan Park in #KarolBagh - but as I dug deeper into the life and times of this man, I was really surprised. A Thread:
Born in 1863, Hakim Ajmal Khan descended from a family of physicians who served the #Mughal court for over 300 years, right from the days of Zahir-ud-Din Muhammad #Babur who established the Mughal rule in India.
His father Hakim Mahmud Khan and his Grandfather Hakim Sharif Ali were both prominent #Unani physicians. The family lived in Ballimaran, the famous muhalla of #Ghalib. Ajmal Khan, unlike his father and grandfather, was born in the post-Mughal era, a few months after Zafar's death

#SupremeCourt declines to hear Harsh Mander today in his petition after SG Tushar Mehta adduces transcripts of his reported speech at #Jamia wherein he said there is no trust left in the courts & that ultimate justice has to be on the streets.

#CJI: We will sort this out first.
#SupremeCourt tells Mander's lawyer that if this is what he feels about the courts then it will have to be decided first whether he should be given a hearing at all.

A separate petition on #DelhiViolence to be heard now.
As advocate Karuna Nundy, appearing for Harsh Mander, seeks time to verify the alleged hate speech, SG Mehta says this is strange that he wants time for verifying his own speech but wants FIRs against everyone immediately.

It's clear that #AnuragThakur, #PraveshVarma and #KapilMishra gave provoking statements, Govt should take action on them and #TusharMehta you are Solicitor General of India,not private lawyer of BJP. Stop defending people who are not related to Central Govt.
Let's think, wasn't there any riots before their statements? Wasn't buses were burn in the name of saving dEmOcRaCy? Wasn't AAP MLA's (especially #AmanatullahKhan) also gave provoking speeches? (Which is the root of all this nonsense) Wasn't he shared stage with #SharjeelImam?
Wasn't Delhi Dy CM #ManishSisodia spread fake news by sharing old video of Delhi police saying Police lit up the buses? Wasn't #NDTV journos gave limelight to so called 'Sheros of #Jamia' who doesn't believe in Secularism and Judiciary of this country & rushed to defend Sharjeel?

Hi @SreenivasanJain, since you sought proof, follow this thread.

The extent of fear-mongering, radicalization & poisoning of the minds of impressionable kids that's going in #ShaheenBagh is deeply disturbing.

Hope you keep your promise & play it on your channel at Prime Time.
This child at #ShaheenBagh protest says - “Hum Modi aur Amit Shah dono ko maar ke rahenge ab!”

Clearly, the kid has been brainwashed by her handlers to such extents that she is calling for the assassination of country’s PM & HM at such a tender age.

This girl at #ShaheenBagh says - “Modi ko log gaali nahi denge toh kya puja karenge?”

An idea was planted in her mind that she would be sent to a detention camp where her clothing shall be snatched & no food shall be provided. Brainwashed?

According to students, "one of the gun attackers was wearing Red Jacket and driving a Red Scooty having Vehicle no. 1532."

Not 1534.

Thread.

I've made two trips to Jewar in the last 24 hours to find out more about the 17-year-old shooter at #Jamia - who exactly he was and why he did what he did.

This is what I found.

#JamiaShooting #CAA_NRC_NPR

in.reuters.com/article/india-…
Family members, neighbours, and a school official in Jewar described the boy as quiet and ordinary. His act of violence took them by surprise.

In recent days, he had become even more withdrawn.

“We tried talking to him but we couldn’t get him to open up,” said his father.
In social media posts and conversations with some classmates, he spoke of restoring Hindu pride and expressed admiration for a right-wing activist whom police have accused of fomenting violence.

“For years, he had said he was going to do something big," a classmate told me.

A right-wing extremist shot as peaceful protestors today near a major university in Delhi.

The police stood by and watched it happen.

There's so much to say about echoes and invocations of history in this event. A few thoughts... thewire.in/communalism/ja… #Jamia #JamiaShooting
Is it the 72nd anniversary of when Godse shot Gandhi. Godse was another right-wing extremist who threatened those who fought for an inclusive, democratic India.

Godse hung for his crimes. Will anybody pay a price for the violence we're seeing unleashed on patriotic Indians now?
The shooter, Gopal Sharma, allegedly shouted that all who want to live in Hindustan will have to chant "Jai Shri Ram."

I bet he doesn't know that Hindustan is a Perso-Arabic word. Indian histories and languages are multicultural. That's a banal fact. It also can be a strength.

#RamLingam was slaughter by Islamists for advocating pluralism.

#Raghu was slaughtered two days ago by an Islamist who first stalked his daughter for #RapeJihad. Hundreds of Hindus are killed by jihadis in India.

They bury these stories, trend #Jamia.

news18.com/news/politics/…
Days ago a Muslim brandished a gun at #ShaheenBagh. Story buried.

Bet #rambhaktgopal will make international news.

Slaughter of Hindus doesn't even make the back pages. Power of ecosystem.

I'd really investigate who set him up, seems totally scripted.

Admire the power of the ecosystem. Two days ago Raghu, a BJP worker was literally hacked to death by an Islamist. Didn't even get a twitter trend. Now a highly suspicious event is created to frame "Hindu terror." No one is seriously injured, but all trends captured, global news.

If you're confused about the possible identity of the masked attacked in #JNUviolence, a question to ask:
Has there been a single tweet yet from @narendramodi @AmitShah or HRD minister @DrRPNishank? What about @CPDelhi @DelhiPolice? Ans: none
@narendramodi @AmitShah @DrRPNishank @CPDelhi @DelhiPolice (2) I received word about #JNUViolence at 18.15 – three and a half hours ago. Since then the Home Minister has tweeted four times; the HRD minister eight times – none of them about JNU.
BJP Delhi MP @M_Lekhi tweeted 18 mins ago – about inaugurating a pedestrian bridge.
#SOSJNU
@narendramodi @AmitShah @DrRPNishank @CPDelhi @DelhiPolice @M_Lekhi (3) The only tweets from Union ministers are from #JNU alumni, Finance Minister @nsitharaman and Minister of External Affairs @DrSJaishankar. These two tweets speak volumes.

Long thread on Jamia protests: So why is Jamia protesting? I will not attempt a political commentary that mainstream media is already immersed into. A critical question is - why do students spend so much energy to protest on #CABBill2019 that doesnot not impact them in any way?
My last article on #JNUProtests tried to connect dots on the overall lack of accountability of students to their careers,a general mis-direction of energy,absence of realism on current economic issues & the low fee structure that creates absence of urgency for anything productive
Jamia protests provoked me to explore the same for the university, with almost similar results. Probably worse. Let’s see the facts & you can decide.
Basics first. Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) has about 18500 students in college level courses. #JamiaMilliaIslamia
