Understanding the truth of #ShaheenBagh Protest

All started in the name of #CAA of protest which they call it divisive & dark law targetting Mu$lims.

However, they named it as saving the Democracy, Constitution & Secularism. But in reality, it has nothing..
2/15
to do with any of these, instead, they had a malign intention to accomplish & targetted Hindus deliberately.

Their main motives were:
1) Defame India & Hindus globally
2) Grabbing the world's media attention
3) Proving #Modi Govt. as fascist
4) Gaining sympathy from the UN
3/15
& to put pressure on #Modi Govt. to withdraw #CAA.

Some impt. events that took place during the protest:
1) They chanted slogans like 'Hinduo se azadi', 'Hinduo ki kabar khodenge', 'Cheen ke lenge azadi', 'Jinnah wali azadi' etc.
2) Assassination threat to Modi & Amit Shah

Consequences of #ShaheenBagh Protest!

The day when it started we all speculated that it'll not end up well & indeed it didn't. The false narratives of 'injustice to Mu$lims' worked & the entire world got the chance to take a ride on our PM & blaming Hindus..

brutality over Mu$lims.

Some of the foreign media which played a key role in successfully spreading the false narratives with the help of Indian media are:

1. BBC
2. CNN
3. Aljazeera World
4. The Washington Post
5. The New York Times
6. The Wall Street Journal, etc.

Many fronts have been opened against India & the target is #Modi. It is not that the entire opposition loves Mu$lims but right after #Modi became the PM, an unethical dynasty, false narrative factories are shut & bcoz of that foreign funding were stopped. That is one of..

No longer is #Modi merely the “Butcher of Gujarat” — under the reign of his #RSS regime, he has become the Butcher of India.... Fascism is not rising in India — it has risen. And the threat of genocide looms large.

Full vid:
Since #Modi rose to power as the Butcher of Gujarat, it was no secret how he would govern India nor should it be any surprise that his administration is now marked by extreme violence. Nor should we be shocked that India is on the brink of genocide.
A legal method for cleansing the country of Muslims is exactly what the #BJP intended the #CAA and the #NRC to provide.

And they’ve made no secret of it.

Reports are emerging of widespread anti-#Muslim violence in Delhi, India. Mosques have been set aflame, Muslim neighborhoods attacked, and Muslim cemeteries desecrated by Hindu-nationalist mobs.

Following is a thread of news and analysis as it breaks.

#DelhiRiots2020
When @thewire_in interviewed a pro-government #Hindutva group about the violence, they replied:

"How dare they protest like this in our country? Is it (their) country? It is our country. We will show them their place."

Are #Hindu/#Muslim riots inevitable in #India?
-Of course not. (So much academic literature-- see @ProfVarshney among many others).

One key variable is government response. Take two conflagrations in #Gujarat in 2002:
<1/3>
2/3
-Feb 2002: 58 #Hindus killed in #Godhra. ~1,000+ #Muslims killed while police (under #Modi) stand by.
-Sept 2002: Terrorists kill 30 at #Akshardam temple. Could have led to mass riots, but #India's PM Vajpayee sent CRPF in quickly to control the situation. No riots.
3/3
In both 2002 #Gujarat cases, the initial provocation was extreme (in #Godhra, still disputed whether fire was intentional or accident: Separate question).
-Govt can't stop killing of 30 people, or even 58. But it CAN stop the killing of 1,000.

If it doesn't, it's complicit.

What did #famers get in #Budget, where @nsitharaman claimed, "Our Govt is committed to the goal of doubling farmers income by 2022"

P.S-Acc to Dalwai committee,"real income of farmer, should increase by 10.4%/year,which has been increasing less than 2.5% in last 5 years
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA Govt allocates 9.3% of the budget to #Agri, allied,irrigation & #rural development, which was 9.8% last year. Factoring Inflation, Real Increase in allocation is actually negative.

Is this enough ?
Will this increase #farm income, prop up #rural demand ?

@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA @mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon Govt allocated 1.58 lakh crore to #agri, allied sectors & irrigation i.e. 5.2% of the total budget. Last years budget had allocated 1.52 lakh crore, which was 5.45% of the budget i.e. reduced spending !

👉Will this double #farm income by 2022 ?🙄

How do we understand the editorial ideology of a magazine like #TheEconomist ? A thread that raises some questions to the magazine. I recently read articles from the below 6 editions with some observations. You can read & decide if same questions hit your mind. @TVMohandasPai
@TheEconomist takes note of major economic reforms but choses to overshadow those by “Hindu nationalist goals” like Kashmir lockdown. Hindu-Nationalist ? I don’t see Chinese nationalist or English nationalist being used. So how does patriotism in India becomes Hindu nationalism?
#TheEconomist says #Modi achieved “unusual unity amongst Hindus” & his victory has “settled the debate in favor of Hindutva”. In a 80% Hindu country, what’s wrong with “unity amongst Hindus” ? You want to see us divided as before?

#NRC #CAA #CAB thread
# 1/20
1. #NRC started in 1980s in Assam. Was Signed 1985. Originally as Assam Accord. Was predecessor of NRC (or a register of citizens)
2. It was signed by Late Shri Rajeev Gandhi
3. Yup you read it right, NOT Rahul Gandhi, but Late Shri Rajeev Gandhi
# 2/20
4. Then it was made PAN INDIA in 2004 December by CONGRESS lead Sonia / MMS govt adding clauses 4 & 14a. Further amended in 2009 by same Congress lead government!! Yes INC ~ Congress
5. So BJP is JUST implementing #NRC , BJP have NOT created NRC
# 3/20
6. It is NRC that creates a REGISTER of citizens. NOT #CAB / NOT #CAA, but Congress created NRC
7. All the halla on "Proof of citizenship" is because of #NRC !! not CAB / CAA .

These #CABProtests riots have three main actors.
1) #Islamist groups frustrated since #Modi won a 2nd term earlier this year.
2) #Communists & #Naxalites frustrated with the irrelevance of their ideology globally.
3) The #Congress looking to regain #political traction.
Most of the players in these three actors are being handled invisibly via strings heading into 10JP & Islamabad . As @AatriTikoo says intelligence units have known of this for long , Naxalite groups have been talking of 2020 for long.
Another actor will soon join in.
Remember the #Sikh referendum issue. This will tie into these protests in a matter of days . Here's hoping @capt_amarinder can control that tide.
He's one of the last good men left in the Left .

Why India should not sign #RCEP

🇮🇳 signed Free Trade Agreements with ASEAN,Korea & Japan,with whom overall trade deficit increased to $41.8 billion 2019 from $15 bill in 2011 & $5 bill in 2006

Imagine d trade deficit spike with #China after RCEP, which is $ 53.6 billion
26.15% of the GVA from India’s #agri sector in 2016-17 was constituted by livestock. Further, 66.93% of the value of livestock output was from #milk i.e. roughly every fifth rupee in agri comes from #dairying. Now, imagine, opening this sector to cheap #milk imports thru #RCEP.😟
Canada allows a small amount of imported products duty-free/low tariffs. Higher amounts attract steep tariffs– 245% on #cheese or 298% on #butter, shielding Canadian farmers from foreign competition, & we on d other side r devising way to flood India with cheap imports thru #RCEP

We cannot call it #India-#Bangladesh prime ministerial meeting in true sense of the term, since #SheikhHasina came to the WEF meeting. The bilateral visit is scheduled later. However despite its limited scope I find the meeting very encouraging and beneficial for either side. 1/n
Key takeaways from #Modi-#SheikhHasina
Meeting 1) The LPG deal is consequent to #India's decision to invest in LPG terminal in #Chittagong. With time we wil see rise in supplies and #Bangladesh-#NorthEast LPG pipeline. 2/n
LPG deal is a mirror of #India-Bangladesh #diesel pipeline with the exception that in the case of #LPG, #Bangladesh is also getting #FDI. This is early stages of creation of a regional oil & gas grid, which may be expanded to #CLMV #Asean in the days to come. #Modi- #Hasina

Last week, #Modi govt told the Supreme Court that women don’t have absolute right to terminate pregnancy. I spoke to several urban, rural single women in 2013 & find out how common #abortions are. A moralistic lens pushes women to endanger their lives.

fountainink.in/reportage/the-…
In India, a woman dies every two hours because she’s had an unsafe abortion, according to Ipas. I found out that lack of responsibility and sensitisation of the male partner was one of the main reasons for women to be clandestine about their situation and take the unsafe route.
The Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Act came into effect in 1972 in India. The Act permits abortion if the doctor believes “in good faith” that “…the continuance of the pregnancy would involve a risk to the life of the pregnant woman or of grave injury to her physical...

Speaking at #AdiosModi protest of #HowdyModi about how Modi's totalitarian regime is crushing freedom of expression & thought throughout India — raiding homes of professors, writers, activists to interrogate them about the books they own or their pictures of Ambedkar on the wall.
While naked & homeless children survive only by begging in the streets of Delhi, the capital of India, that nation's autocratic ruler just squandered over $2.5 million for a 3-hour spectacle with no other purpose than to whitewash his blood-drenched history. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi
We need to thank the American politicians who heroically refused to attend this event today. I want to name some names. That includes people like Congressman @BradSherman & @RepAlGreen. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi
