Are we seeing a massive turbulence in political landscape with PM announcing on #GuruPurab #KartikPurnima d repeal of three #FarmLaws ???
Do we see a big impact on d political fortunes of many a politicians ??
Imagine d fate of many a sponsors of #FarmersProtests !
#JustAsking
Yes many a raised eyebrows and many a questions will be posed.
The Government will need to articulate well the climb down at this time. But rest assured Government will have a refurbished image as of now.
#JustAsking
Many a doors will open up, many a windows will be closed. Fate of many politicians will be sealed, while many politicians will find hurdles and humps removed in their onward political journey. At the same time, it will ring alarm bells for many a politicians.

Adv Tanveer Ahmed Mir rebuts Prosecution's arguments against #SharjeelImam who has sought bail in a case connected to #DelhiRiots before Delhi Court. "Sole indictment on the speech. Incumbent duty upon all of us to look at the speech... If it incident violence"
Mir argues in a case of #Sedition against Imam. On #NRC, Mir argues ultimately his client's speech talks about advocating of a policy like... "In a university if we don't debate public policies, where do we debate?" #sharjeel_imam #CAA_NRC #DelhiRiots
Mir: This is a criminal court. We don't go by inferences. I am not denying my speech. For the speech to fall under #Sedition... My friend can't have discretion to add his own thoughts and inferences. #sharjeel_imam #DelhiRiots

A grim reminder to what we face as a nation ! #ShaheenBagh was initiated just before the first wave hit . Just as the world was hit by a wave of cases we had half of New Delhi blocked by protestors protesting a legitimately passed bill by a democratically elected parliament . 1/n
Global media and their lap dogs in India ensured that it was a celebrated event . Remember the “ Shaheenbhag Dadi “ ?What was forgotten was that the protests were orchestrated and organized with full support of the ruling government in Delhi . This was followed by the violent 2/n

Modi Knows ...
Folks a Long Thread; Trust me it'll be worth ur while.

'Modi was right. We were wrong. Protesting farmers are checkmated!'

I sense #FarmersProtests has lost its steam & this round goes to Modi, that is if there's still 2.0 waiting.

Not just ears, I've kept my eyes & nose too on the grnd. I sense the squatting farmers are more like deadwt on Delhi borders than a heaving humanity.

It’s not my instinct alone. There were dots connecting this farmers’ protest and one-by-one each have begun to disappear.

It’s just not @_YogendraYadav missing, or @rihanna and @GretaThunberg fading so quickly, or various kind of “Diwas” and “chakka-jams” being reduced to length of a matinee-show.

The biggest dots were politicians and press and those big guns have fallen silent.

Key takeaways from the #GretaToolKitLeaks and #ShaheenBagh #KathuaCase #FarmerProtests for Pro-India and Pro-Sanatan Samskriti adherents: (1/n)

1) Our lot severely lacks a bona fide PR and Communications Agency which can be leveraged.
2) Those against us clearly leverage professional PR and Communications agencies and have deals with news syndicates. Their reach is much broader than ours

2/n
3) They are very organized and very disciplined whereas we are highly disorganized and highly undisciplined. Each person is running their own "fight the wrong narrative" battle alone.

A review of #Islamophobia in 2020:

The #COVID19 pandemic exacerbated Islamophobia around the globe. From #India to the U.K., #Muslims were accused of spreading the virus & evading lockdown orders.
For #Muslims, the environment meant not only being disproportionately impacted by a deadly virus but also facing targeted discrimination from those in power:

foreignpolicy.com/2020/03/28/ind…
Islamophobia in #India in 2020:
Politicians & right-wing media continued to promote anti-Muslim rhetoric & tropes, while Indian Muslims & rights activists protested against discriminatory legislation (#CAA), which rendered Indian Muslims 2nd-class citizens.

#ShaheenBagh #ModiSurrendersToChina
With a clear cut agenda to sell the country, Modi always knew that the promise of 2,00,00,000 jobs every year was never going to get fulfilled. He lied about job creation right from 2013 onward.
The youth waited. Then they started to see the sale of national assets taking place and the clever decimation of PSU's which were providing bulk of the jobs. That is when they woke up and the tipping point was the Corona outbreak which rendered the economy defunct.
Probably the last straw came when Modi literally abandoned the country by asking it to become self sufficient. That signaled a total failure of the government and exposed it as having no policy or plan to take the country out of the mess of sudden and brutal lock

In March, @TheJaggi sir wrote this on #ShaheenBagh, “This is not some dadi-led agitation against the CAA, but a form of passive-aggressive Jihad that is being innovated in India.”
How true was that!

Now wait for a flurry of articles on how courts have been compromised, democracy is being throttled, minorities are oppressed....leading the charge will be Wire, then Scroll and their foreign cousins WaPo & NYT. And more Faiz and Rahat Indori quotes.
#ShaheenBagh
- On a serious note, #ShaheenBagh was the 'democratic' version of chakka-jam which Sharjeel Imam was advocating, especially in strategically sensitive zones like Siliguri corridor.
- #ShaheenBagh was a pretty clever and well thought out strategy.
- With women and children as +
+ supposedly the face of this 'protest', any government action to forcibly evict them would've been a massive PR disaster.
- But on the other hand, if you allowed it to be replicated across the country, you'll have serious undermining of state & central authority.

Supreme Court will pronounce its judgement today on the question of balance between right to protest and other public rights like right to movement.

This larger question was posed before the Court in the backdrop of the Anti CAA protests at Delhi's #ShaheenBagh.

#SupremeCourt
Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul pronounces the order.

"Public spaces and public places cannot be occupied indefinitely."

"Dissent and democracy go hand in hand"

#SupremeCourt #ShaheenBagh
SC observes that it is the duty of the administration to remove such blockades of roads.

SC observes, administration's inaction to do so warranted Court's intervention.

#Hathras my views on it are based on a lot of inputs. The preparators thought and assumed that another #ShaheenBagh like situation, what they failed to note was , the government had stored on its memory the issue and here they were prepared. #PFI , the #Bheemagency and it's
2. agents were unprepared for this. As it emerges it's clear that there was no rape involved and the victims kin were equally involved in the gruesome murder which was an as they term it - an honour killing - I fail to understand any honour in killing unless it's one against

Remember?

#ShaheenBagh was a roaring success and the brave women there showed us how it's done.

I have said this multiple times, saying it again. The NEXT big agitation should be against media houses, starting with Noida film city.

It should be a peaceful sit in protest...
And there should be so many people there in film city, protesting against channels there, and the employees - no matter what they do in these organisations - should face us while going in and coming out, just sitting there, voicing our protest.

We call for accountability.
If they publish crap, they should know there are people right outside to question the shit they published. Vulture editors should know there are people outside, and a lot of them, who could just barge in if they run propaganda. Guests attending bullshit debates should know.

M/s @BloomsburyIndia Have you really withdrawn the book #DelhiRiots2020 after 786% FAKE-OUTRAGE 4m #Lutyens? If so, U should WITHDRAW book on #ShaheenBagh, because #ShaheenBaghsters created unrest in others places and led to these riots. SHAME on you for SURRENDER to Anarchists😠 Image
And wise-heads @BloomsburyIndia @Rajivberi must KNOW that @RanaAyyub #GarbageFiles, though highly condemned by #SupremeCourt 4 outright lies in it, was still published. Why withdraw book #DelhiRiots2020, if some dickheads don't like it. Let readers decide!
Agree. Indian-Writers MUST boycott foreign-publishers and go for Indian ones. #DelhiRiots2020TheUntoldStory can do the following:
a) Sue @BloomsburyIndia 4 breach-of-contract and demand substantive compensation
b) Publish the book via an Indian publisher
