The #ShaheenBaghProtest may have resulted in letting the entire nation know about the designs of the #BreakingIndia gang, but the BJP's inept handling has also taken the sheen off Amit Shah's aura of invincibility.
#UrbanNaxals now know he can be taken on, and beaten.
Amit Shah is perhaps the sharpest political mind in India today, & as Home Min, the expectations from him are immense.
However, at some point, the BJP will have ponder whether its strategy of letting things play out endlessly is the right one.
Take mahacorrupt prosecution for e.g
The Delhi elections, marginal in most ways, have however revealed a chink in the BJP's armour - electoral Hinduism is a strategy of diminishing returns, and easily imitable.
CAA aside, there are far more pressing and important issues for Hindus that the BJP needed to tackle.

In the past 2 months, we have seen violence, islamist supremacy chants, loss of lives, in the name of protest against #CAA. Well, it is not just an isolated case.
In Amit Shah's words, "Aap Chronology Samajhiye" - a thread 1/8
The protestors, their sympathisers: politicians & pseudo secular Lutyen's media via isolated incidents show India a fascist country via propaganda such as:
1. Church Att@cks, where only a few out of the million burgled churches were isolated to show Christians in danger 2/8
2. Cow Vigilantism: In the past decade only 85 incidents have occurred in which news of Jai Shti Ram chants were wrongfully manipulated to show Hinduism in bad light. Whereas over 1200 incidents of cow trafficking has taken place which no one dare to tell 3/8

@TarekFatah @Payal_Rohatgi @pokershash @desimojito
@TarekFatah @Payal_Rohatgi @pokershash @desimojito We will organise together more after JNU riots and we are distributing invitations in mosques so more people will come and we will disrupt Delhi. Nehru was fascist. Kashmir mein dhoka hua
@TarekFatah @Payal_Rohatgi @pokershash @desimojito We made a platform to raise our voice & we're 200 people from JNU. This video was uploaded on facebook by group ‘Mu$lim Students of JNU’. Not only in Delhi but also in every city where Muslims are, there should be roadblock. Don't give damn to Congress

'Azadi' rings out every hour at #ShaheenBagh, but there is little azadi for media persons to do their job here. Got surrounded and asked to leave twice by mobs of unruly men today.

"Go and report from near the stage, not here," I was told. No one ready to listen, only booing.
Understandable that people are paranoid after a section of the media misreported on the protest. But that doesn't justify the harassment and some piddling "rule" to not let anyone report from outside the main premises. #ShaheenBagh
I, as a reporter, will not entertain anyone who tells me where, what and how to report. Period. #ShaheenBaghProtest

Decoding #ShaheenBaghStandoff . It started with AAP MLA #amanatullahkhan 's speech on December 15, 2019, following which announcements were made by loudspeakers to goad people to reach #JamiaMilia . Outsiders came there, hurled Molotov cocktails, stones on @DelhiPolice (1)
As #JamiaMilia simmered, politicians joined the game. Competitive politics between #amanatullahkhan & Congress' #AsifMohammad aggravated it. Then appeared older women & they occupied Road no 13 & both carriageways were blocked. Asif M Khan feared Amanatullah taking credit (2)
Amanatullah retreated for sometime, Asif Khan sat on Dharna & implored DCP Southeast to arrest him but he refused to play ball. #ShaheenBaghProtest kept growing with hidden hands supplying funds & food packs, tea, snacks, warm clothes, blankets were provided to protesters. (3)

#ShaheenBagh is on twitter now. follow them @Shaheenbaghoff1
zainul on hunger strike since 15 dec still smiles and talks. he has lost 18 kg since. no government doctor has come to see him. #ShaheenBagh
zainul had told me that the spirit of women at #ShaheenBagh keeps him going. he said the women have remained silent for long despite the many injustices and have endured it but now that they are speaking up his hunger strike is his way of extending unconditional support to them.
