Some important, but valid questions arise as I reflect upon the protests that happened in opposition to #CAA all over the country. Collating my thoughts as a thread and sharing it. The questions are open for anyone to answer. (1/N)
@sakthi_ind93 @Swamy39 @MaridhasAnswers
The #CAA guarantees to instantly provide Citizenship to all persecuted minorities from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, who entered India before 31st Dec, 2014. There are 30K+ such immediate beneficiaries who will now be granted Indian Citizenship. (2/N)
Now, questions are raised by few senior MPs and politicians about why Muslims have been excluded. Obvious reasons include:

1. Out of the 30k people who are awaiting Indian #citizenship for many years, there are Hindus, Sikhs, Parsi, Jain, Buddhist and Christians. (3/N)

#ReadingSession - #Thread on "Report of the Task Force on an IT Strategy for PDS and an implementable solution for the direct transfer of subsidy for Food and Kerosene" - Oct 2011 aka #NandanPDSTaskForce which first mooted the idea of #PDSN. It is important to understand #ONORC
The report is here - dea.gov.in/sites/default/…

Before dwelling in - Note the title - Czar didn't like 'commitees' and hence called whatever he was part of, as - task force - Though no task was done!
Members of committee - All ex-officio secretaries, except 2 from the illegal executive body UIDAI. This was basically done by "#Aadhaar lobby".

On this #AprilFoolsDay, recounting some instances from #Parliament which had us fooled in the last one year:

1. Delaying discussing #FinanceBill for almost a week and then passing it without discussion in #LokSabha, because #Parliament had to be shut due to #COVID outbreak
2. On last day of curtailed #BdgetSession in #RajyaSabha, 7 Money Bills were returned in 5 hours, with 2 Appropriation Bills and all 154 clauses and 5 schedules of Finance Bill put to vote together without any discussion and cleared in 5 minutes

#AprilFoolsDay
3. Sending #DataProtection Bill to specially constituted Joint Parliament Committee headed by a BJP MP instead of already existing Standing Committee headed by an Opposition MP

Just finished my tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camps and the history of it is devastating, but every second of the tour I could only see the future of #NRC and #CAA in India blatantly staring me in the face. Thread. CW:Graphic text/images, Holocaust, Murder, Racism
These are the same ideologies the #RSS idolizes. "Purity of race" is what a one-race nation mainly aims at. It doesn't take long for such ideologies to be stated blatantly.
This was ONE concentration camp. If the people dying weren't Jews, they were people leading the rebellion, leaders of the opposition and anyone who dared raise their voice against the Nazis. Look at these numbers.

The Citizenship Amendment Act in #India has received much intl attention and generated heated debate and protests that provoked a police crackdown and rioting, including the recent #DelhiViolence that resulted in over 50 deaths. Why is the #CAA problematic?

A thread…
What is #CAA? It provides a fast track to Indian citizenship for specifically non-Muslim migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan already in India; removes the illegal migrant label for specified groups; and protects them from legal action in regard to citizenship.
The government argues the #CAA’s only purpose is to protect persecuted minorities in neighboring countries, a laudable goal in of itself (and a key reason my org @USCIRF was formed), and has no impact on Indian Muslims.

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.

Protest Monitor has recorded 759 protests related to the #CAA and the #NRC--110 in favour and 649 against. It has been 79 days since the CAA was passed, and 49 days since the Home Ministry notified it. Follow this thread for details:
Maharashtra had the most protests (72), followed by West Bengal (67), Karnataka (66) and Assam (61)
Protest Monitor does not aspire to be an exhaustive record of every protest happening in India. This is merely an effort to document the scale of public expression at a significant juncture in Indian politics

Always remember this: it's not about #CAA or #NRC or #AyodhyaVerdict or #Article370. It's about the solid Sanatana civilization slowly reasserting itself.
The greatest hope that the Indian National Congress (Pakistan) party banked on was a repeat of 2004 in 2019 - a shock loss of the BJP at the elections.
The manner in which @narendramodi overturned it and resoundingly pounded a desperate coalition of 20+ parties is what has led them to incite a civil war right in Delhi.

The Nuremberg Laws were antisemitic and racist laws in Nazi Germany which is similar to present #NRC. Still you guys think the fight against this draconian law is only for the Muslims? If your answer is “YES” then you have put humanity to Shame. #NRCProtests This thread!!! 1/n
The Reich Citzenship Law of September 15, 1935 The Nuremberg Laws embedded many of the racially based ideological principles held by the Nazi party (Relate to the Nazi Party of India) into written law. The German Reichstag passed this set of laws on September 15, 1935, 2/n

THREAD: The history India is silent on that must be revisited as we face the threat of #NRC detention. During the 1962 war with China, India rounded up thousands of Indians of Chinese descent saying they were "foreigners" & a threat, and jailed them for 5yrs in detention centres
2/ A book every Indian supporting the #NRC_CAA_NPR protests #MustRead if you really want to know how deep racist persecution runs through Indian history. Similarly, most Chinese rounded up and sent in trains to #detentioncentres in Deoli, Rajasthan, were from #Assam & #Bengal.
3/ The 3000 Chinese, the Indian govt put into detention centres in 1962 were 2nd/3rd generation in India. Many died in detention due to sickness & starvation. Most were FORCEFULLY deported but did not want to go as India was home! #NRC_CAA_NPR

@CTwinkley On #CAA_NRCProtests

India is a democratic country & dissent is a part of democracy. However, country has been witnessing dissenters being termed as "anti- nationals"; be it celebritries, students or the common public.
Every citizen of a democratic country has the right to dissent provided it is under constitutional action.

There have been widespread protests against #CAA_NRC across the country. So far 533 protests have been held in the country since the CAA was enacted on 12th Dec,2019.
With a total of 52 Protests, Maharashtra has reportedly held the the maximum protests against the CAA NRC, followed by West Bengal with 51, Karnataka with 47, Bihar and UP with 45 protests.

Here's the thing about the #CAA. Govt Ministers say repeatedly that it's objective is to help Hindus and other faith migrants who had to flee majoritarian relig. persecution. If that was the sole objective then how would it NOT have been met with Sec 2 amended as below? How?
If the Govt cannot argue that my proposed amendment would NOT HAVE helped Hindu etc persecuted migrants then they will have to accept that the sole purpose of EXCLUDING muslims in #CAA was to discriminate against them. That's as maybe.. but there's worse to follow...
If you consider #NPR and #NRC, it is clear that with the #CAA implemented, the only Paperless and Document-light people who can be suspected of being economic migrants from #Pak and #Bangla and therefore packed off to a detention camp will be #Muslims. Most of them will be Indian

You read it here first
Please read upto the last few tweets to understand how this applies to your life

Wild boars are a nuisance for farmers
They destroy crops & farmers lose heavily
Fierce & powerful creatures, they move around in family groups with strong bonds

1/n
When a trap is set, it captures only individual boars
& surviving boars learn fast & avoid those traps thereafter
Making hunting down an entire group a long & arduous exercise
So its better to ensure that the entire sounder (a family of wild boars) are eliminated in one shot

2/n
Trappers & hunters follow a specific strategy:
A spot near their usual stomping grounds is selected
A circular area is fenced off with 1 or 2 points of entry & egress
Which can be closed with trapdoors
Corn or a similar bait is placed here for the boars to feast on

#CAA and #NRC : What's the fuss really about.

All the supposedly oh so nuetral stances of the politically correct classes do not deal with the elephant in the room, which is Muslim intolerance of Hindus.
There is no getting around the fact that this is a Hindu majority nation and what was propagated as secularism for all these decades is now dead. These are just the burial rituals. Good riddance to this rubbish notion anyway.
After all this BS that we have seen in the last six weeks, the Govt would do well to introduce and pass UCC in the budget session of Parliament itself and get it over with. Population Control Bill can be done a little later.

When i scan a wide spectrum of opinions, news, random tweets on their own experiences by people who you would not even know in the normal course of events what is very clear is that an entire eco system that ruled India directly or indirectly for 7 decades which insists on status
quo has sensed blood literally & thirsty to taste it. They are convinced that it is just a matter of time before they taste blood. Every last penny is now being thrown for this #CAAProtest & the biggest error of judgement this govt has done is by talking of #NRC. They have thus
given a handle to everybody who was down & out to suddenly get oxygen loaded with testosterone. A complex subject which even the most educated haven't been able to wrap their head around has opened a huge door of opportunity to the old ecosystem. Early in the new govt they sense

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: tl.gd/n_1sr4hba /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

Even as protests over #CAA rage across India, a review of government orders (GO) by TOI shows that the government has been steadily placing hurdles in the way of Muslims seeking Indian citizenship since December 2014. #ConstitutionBench #NRC #SupremeCourt
timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/before-c…
The most significant GO is the October 22, 2018 amendment to the Passport (Entry into India) Rules, 1950 and Foreigners Act, 1946, discriminating against Muslims and atheists for the grant of long-term visas (LTVs). The changed LTV regulations say..
, “Only members of minority communities in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, namely, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians, are eligible to apply for long-term visas.”
