A thread on the #NRC. Young India must educate itself and understand the nuances of it.
It is the product of the Assam Agitation (1979-1985). The Agitation ended with the signing of the Assam Accord (1985).
The roots of the agitation can be traced to the issue of changes... 1/n
in the ethnic composition of the state. There isn't any consensus on the sheer magnitude of migration which took place in waves, major ones include-during the time when the British established tea plantations, then during the Partition and finally in 1971 Bangladesh War...2/n
Anup Saikia pegs the migration into Assam during 1971-1991 as 1.4 million.
H. Srikanth writes that this influx of migrants made the Assamese people very insecure of their own identity vis-à-vis that of the "educated Hindu Bengalis, the hardworking Muslim peasants." 3/n

👉Amit Shah s idea of New India is inspired heavily by the reality TV show #BiggBoss 👈
👉He wants to impose Hindi all over India👈
👉He wants to impose the extremely flawed #NRC in the entire country without any idea how he ll make it genuine n fool proof👈
#gobackmodi

👉He wants no one to have any privacy👈
👉He criticizes the multiparty system of India which forms the core of indian
democratic system👈
👉The way he has locked down ppl of #JammuAndKashmir after abrogation of #Article370 also hints the same.👈

👽He Makes a Big House ~ Detention Center

👽He detains anyone he wants to inside the house

👽He is cruel yet justifies what he does

👽He decides what slaves can take inside the house and what not

👽Everyone is his slave.

👽Everyone has to listen to his voice.

Whenever someone from BJP talks about #NRC for the while country, even if it's @AmitShah, even if u love this govt, ask, for your own sake:
1. First have you figured out what you'll do with NRC excluded in #Assam? Show me proof this method works to deport illegals.
1/n
2. The cut off date to show citizenship in Assam is 1971, when Bangladesh was formed. What is it for regions that don't border Bangladesh?
3. FRRO is the one monitoring visas and foreigners resident in India, picks out illegal stay. How will it work with #NRC?
2/n
4. The Census dept is making the National Population Register (NPR) for residents of India. It even collects biometrics. It's ongoing. Will this be distinct from @NRC? Do we need so many lists?

Bij #Nieuwsuur en #NRC onderzoek naar 50 informele weekendscholen die volgens hen zijn of sterk door het #salafisme worden beïnvloed. Ze bekeken het lesmateriaal voor verschillende leeftijdsgroepen.
De aankondiging eerder was gebruikelijk: NRC en Nieuwsuur volgen redelijk de agenda vd veiligheidsdiensten en komen nu net als die diensten met focus op informeel onderwijs. Er worden wat quotes gepubliceerd die mensen zeker een probleem vinden, reacties politici gevraagd. klaar.
De uitzending begint met de claim dat #nieuwsuur en #nrc voor het eerst onderzoek hebben gedaan, naar de inhoud van de lessen van informeel onderwijs van 'salafisten'. Dat is pertinent onjuist: journalisten en wetenschappers hebben dat al gedaan. De boeken zijn dan ook bekend.

"As the first non-official to be allowed in #detentioncentres as a special monitor of the #NHRC, the situation I saw there is beyond description. It is a jail within a jail, a situation of mass mourning" @harsh_mander @karwanemohabbat #Assam #NRC
The #women have no work, no recreation and no parole. Women have been kept in crowded cells for years together, separated from their families and husbands, even when the entire family is detained. @harsh_mander #genderinjustice in #Assam @karwanemohabbat
"True #Justice must always be tempered with compassion. I saw none of it in the #SupremeCourt'a behavior." @harsh_mander

West #Bengal Assembly rules out #NRC 👏👏
Only a handful of BJP members opposed the resolution.
It was pointed out that Gorkhas had voted overwhelmingly for the BJP in Darejeeling hills, and one lakh Gorkha people have been excluded from the NRC. thehindu.com/news/national/…
During the debate, members, supporting the resolution that had called the exercise “inhuman and autocratic”, made repeated references to the partition of Bengal and the influx of refugees from Bangladesh. They said the exercise was “anti-Bengali” #TMC #NRC
Leader of the Left Legislature Party Sujan Chakraborty said the #NRC was not against Muslims or those who had come from the other side of Bengal but against the poor people who had no access to documents. #CPM

This man's hypocrisy is UNTAMABLE.

In his 2012 book Pax Indica, @ShashiTharoor said there are some 20 million illegal Bangladeshis in India. He wrote about them disparagingly, as though they were termites that had "disappeared into the Indian woodwork". Now he remembers Tagore.
In 2005, it was Tharoor's govt, the UPA, that proposed urgency in the drafting and the updating of the NRC in Assam.

The UPA Home Minister said he feared Assam could one day have a Bangladeshi chief minister. PM Manmohan Singh chaired the meeting. timesnownews.com/india/article/…
Also in 2005, Mamata Banerjee, outraging today, threw papers at the speaker, demanding a discussion on the scourge of illegal Bangladeshi migration.

She even resigned but her resignation was poorly drafted and misdirected and therefore wasn't accepted. indiatoday.in/india/story/wh…

The rats in both the central and regional leadership of the BJP, who were gung-ho about the #NRC even during the general election hoping to drive a schism between Hindus and Muslims and cause riots, are now abandoning ship faster than you can say "NRC".
And that is because one of the worst affected communities in Assam, due to the NRC, has been the Bengali Hindu people. Parts of that community gained support of the BJP due to their Citizenship Bill, hoping their religious beliefs will stop Indian citizenship questions.
But from the very beginning, starting with the violence in Assam in the 1980s, the agitation was aimed at the Bengali-speaking community, regardless of religion. During the many "massacres", Hindus were killed and maimed almost at the same rate as Muslims.

news.vice.com/en_us/article/… Everyone left off the #NRC will face Assam's foreigners tribunals. How do they work?
My investigation with @VICE and @typeinvestigate done over six months, analysing 500+ tribunal judgements received through #RTI. Do read.
@VICE @typeinvestigate 78% of the orders were issued without the accused present, known as an ex-parte judgement. In one tribunal, this was the case in every single judgment.
@VICE @typeinvestigate In 515 judgments analysed, about 82% of people on trial were declared foreigners. The numbers varied widely; one foreigners tribunal declared all its cases Indian, while another declared every person tried a foreigner.

Ben zeer benieuwd of we het nog gaan meemaken dat @MariekeNOS de kijker gaat uitleggen waar de #Lolita_Express voor bedoeld was en of we meer zullen horen wat er precies op het eiland van #Jeffrey_Epstein werd gedaan.

1. Voor wie wil begrijpen wat er nu gaande is met # FVD na de teleurstellende EP-verkiezingen even een tamelijk lang maar hopelijk verklarend [draadje]
2. FVD is snel gevallen na het grote succes bij de Statenverkiezingen. Van grootste partij tot vierde bij EP (bijna vijfde - het verschil met GL miniem). Van 1.1 miljoen naar 600.000 stemmers binnen 2 maanden.
3. Zelfde beeld in de peilingen. Net als grote voorbeeld #Trump volgt #Baudet de peilingen obsessief - in zekere zin zijn de TK peilingen volgens mij voor Baudet belangrijker dan daadwerkelijke uitslagen PS/EP. Maar bij huispeiler @mauricedehond is FVD van 27 naar 21 gedaald.

The same Fraud as Sylhet Referendum.
#NRC
If anyone interested in knowing what's the "Fraud of Sylhet referendum" was all about and how same Assam machinery played the game, do read this thread.

Good to see @derekobrienmp finally being able to see ground reality away from his earlier stance after Church window was broken and cry out Intolerance.

It's Hindus (Bengalis) who have been facing intolerance from first partition of Bengal till date.

Reporting in #Assam on the chaos & fear arnd the govt naming ppl foreigners, we ran into this funeral. 93-yr-old Ashrab Ali frm Salausuti, Kamrup, drank pesticide yday, after his #NRC hearing, called coz someone filed an objection against his inclusion in the citizens register
Ashrab Ali's name was in the #NRC draft list. Someone filed an objection against this. When Ashrab's entire family was called for a hearing on May 23. The objector apparently didn't turn up, which is common in #Assam today, even tho 3 lakh objections were filed.
His son said that when the #NRC official took his biometrics, Ashrab was extremely worried this meant that he has "become a foreigner". The citizenship of his 2 sons and daughter depends on his own.

Watched Schindler's List last night. Can't stop thinking abt the History & Litt prof who's called "not essential" at the Jews camp.
The maid who can't prevent being killed even by following rules.
Schindler's failed attempt at convincing a murderous Commander "mercy is power"
Can't stop thinking abt the initial disbelief, even among Jews in captivity, abt gas chambers.
Can't stop thinking abt our own disbelief that govts can orchestrate mass exclusions & racist murders - "they mean nothing to him" - even when we see it over and over across the world
It begins with 'small' discriminatory laws: XYZ can't own businesses, Rohingyas can't join army/be civil servants, Sri Lankan Tamils need to score more marks than Sinhalese to be doctors.
Those it doesn't affect shrug it off.

Live In Abeokuta Or Ibadan And Get To Work In Lagos Conveniently — NRC

The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has said that there are possibilities for residents of Abeokuta or Ibadan to now work in Lagos with the new standard gauge rail line.
The Lagos Railway District Manager, Mr Jerry Oche, made the assertion in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos said that the nearly completed Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge would open lots of opportunities for various communities within the railway corridors.
This is a huge opportunity, many people will prefer to live in Abeokuta and work in Lagos due to the speed and timeliness of the new train.
According to him, when completed will travel at 150km per hour and Lagos-Ibadan is 156km journey through the standard gauge.

#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.

So yesterday, Madam @obyezeks was caught again with wrong information as touching #UnemploymentRate in Nigeria, when she deliberately dished out a FALSE data & claimed it's from @nigerianstat
Well, she's in the Presidential race, so expect more LIES from her also.
Issa THREAD👇
Almost every politician now talks about #UnemploymentRate and #JobLoss under Buhari administration.
So let's check a little bit how this SUDDENLY became a topic.
When did this #JobLoss & #UnemploymentRate hit NIGERIANS?
Did this suddenly happen after PMB took over in 2015?
You will notice that even Ben Murray Bruce who took Bank loan of N11 Billion (2005) from Union Bank that led to #JobLoss & #UnemploymentRate in Nigeria also has been talking LOUD about the same MENACE he was part of those who caused o....
LISTEN again, Ben Bruce was part them!

1 of 5) This emerging uranium cartel is forming as a confederacy with no allegiance to any State or Rule of Law. It is evolving from globalists for the benefit of globalists7

@christianllamar @4AllSoulKind @RealMichaelGuy @DJLugoff
2 of 7) The goal of this cartel is to exercise future international control of uranium resources and processes.

As is often the case, the answer is found within the question:
3 of 7) “Why is there an investigation of collusion between Russia, Donald Trump and the Trump campaign when there is smoking gun evidence of collusion and more between Russian and other foreign assets, Hillary and Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation?”

"A key part of Nazi ideology was to define the enemy and those who posed a threat to the so-called “Aryan” race.". In India too, sangh parivar is busy with propaganda defining the enemy~non Hindus, opponents of hindutva & supporters of secular diverse India.
"The use of  propaganda and laws to define the enemy as a cohesive group was a key factor in achieving the goals of the Nazi regime"..in #NewIndia we see same type of propaganda against Muslims&Christians..religious identity used to attack Indian citizens
encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/en/art…
"Nazi propaganda was essential in promoting the myth of the “national community” and identifying who should be excluded."
Sangh Parivar propaganda is similar.hindi Hindu Hindustan agenda. Muslims,Christians r outsiders acc to RSS..even though they are all 100%native to the land.

#NRCAssam It's surprising (actually it isn't) to see a tome of opinion seeking to justify illegal migration into Assam. Isn't Assam a part of India? Illegal migration into Assam impllies illegal migration into India too (1/n)
There was an obnoxious piece of legislation Illegal Migrants (Determination by Tribunals) Act enacted in the 1980s. The name of law itself --Illegal Migrants-- recgonised the enormity of the problem more than three decades ago (2/n)

I heard @AmitShah say those not on #NRCAssam are ‘ghuspaith’ or infiltrators. My cousin a top Guwahti doctor , her mother, my uncle in Tezpur are all now branded that?? This despite giving all papers. What mental torture
They are of course Bengalis and not assamese. Is that the issue?
All those saying just produce papers, those not on list HAD shown papers!! My family is sick of being pushed around. Some left assam when ulfa threats happened, will that happen again? #NRC

VILE. @MamataOfficial's govt drafts new rules for University teachers, SEVERELY curtailing their freedom of speech & expression.

Little to no outrage by the media. It appears their fascism-sensing antennae can be withdrawn at will. (h/t @CW_dynastycrook) indiatoday.in/india/west-ben…
The figure for Kerala is 82.1%. For Gujarat it is 50.4%.

Well-done, West Bengal and @MamataOfficial. Magnificent achievement. Credit where due.
20,076 seats in the Bengal Panchayat Polls have gone UNCONTESTED. That's 34% of total seats. Allegations of BRUTAL violence, torture, and now rape, are rife.

Bengal has been run over. This is a blitzkrieg without the Panzer regiment. Resistance is futile. theweek.in/news/india/201…
