Threat to India: A thread.

Since @BJP4India came into power, interesting and worrying things have been happening.
@BJP4India has little administrative and system experience as compared to @INCIndia
BJP isn’t perfect, however, it’s a better alternative to INC

1/n
BJP started a few reforms which affected communities differently. It may be #TripleTalaq or #FarmLaws or #EducationReforms
Some were received with joy, some with fierce resistance. However, everything was done in accordance with constitution.
Best was abrogation of 370 & 35A
2/n
You must’ve observed since 2014 and up until 2018-2019, not much ruckus was being created against BJP. Though their main target was always @narendramodi. @RahulGandhi blabbered incoherently about #Rafael and later had to apologize to NaMo for his remarks. That’s still okay.

My understanding of Indian Politics since 1989 as a @nsui Ldr till date almost 30yrs @RahulGandhi had lost the game before the elections in 2019! Pl recap what all burning issues during 2018 #Demonetisation #GST #TripleTalaq #Article370 #CAA #NRC #PriceRise Etc.Still @RSSorg WON.
Post 2019 WIN the Arrogance of Power which was at its Peak for Ruling BJP as they Bull Dozed everything & anything which the Govt felt they are Right as instructed by RW Bosses. Meanwhile their Nominee & chela was given the Task to ensure BJP is made the Formidable Opposition.

From the economy to women empowerment to national security to rural infrastructure development to agricultural sector, PM @narendramodi Ji's speech is all encompassing and includes all the relevant & important contemporary topics.

Path-breaking initiatives like #NationalDigitalHealthMission will prove to be a game-changer. It will help every Indian to have their own 'digital health id card' where they can store their health-related data which will help their health data stay organized & easily accessible. Image
Digital divide has been a significant challenge.

To address the same, the present govt has resolved to connect 600,000 gram panchayats through digital optical fibre by 2023 which will prove to be a boon for e-governance and help bridge the digital divide. Image

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

International Judicial Conference 2020 commenced in the national capital today under the aegis of the #SupremeCourt of India. The conference on "Judiciary and the changing world" will witness judges and delegates from 20 countries participating over the weekend. Image
Justice L Nageswara Rao delivers the welcome address as he emphasises on sharing of thoughts and says this conference would serve as a market place for ideas that would be mutually beneficial for judicial institutions across the globe.
Attorney General KK Venugopal says he wants to emphasise on 'taking poverty to the courts'. He adds courts shouldn't hesitate in ensuring rights of the downtrodden & help in reducing poverty. AG hopes poverty will be eliminated from India in next 5 yrs.

. @KTRTRS talking about CAA protests. He goes on to say, something is wrong hence there are protests. Why are Muslims subjected to secular tests?
For people who do not understand telugu, I'll tweet the translation done by @SayeedMA
#CAA_NRC_Protests
KTR Talks - Why do you think we have this protests? Do you think people are protesting for no reason? Why are people doubting only CAA Act? In the past, Modi government had passed controversial bills such as #TripleTalaq, #370 etc and there was no protest? Why only this?
We asked the Modi govt in Parliament that u are willing to grant Indian citizenship to minorities from other countries, why singling out Muslims? What's wrong in what we asked? We never got an answer to this. I heard a BJP leader from WB talking about shooting the protestors?

For all those youngsters who were very young or born after 1986, I am offering perspective behind current round of violence indulged into by Jihadists..
1) In 1985, Supreme Court of India, adjudicated a divorce/ maintenance case in favour an elderly Muslim woman; Shah Bano..
1/9
2) The SC asked her husband to pay her maintenance every month..Her husband was of the view that under Muslim Personnel law, he wasnt required to pay her any maintence beyond iddat period of 3 months and 10 days..
Since, the Supreme Court of India didn't accept his arguments+
2/9
+ Muslim organisations came out on the streets in protest against the SC ruling..Their argument was that the judiciary had no power to rule in the matters of their Personal law..
Many organisations threatened then PM, Rajiv Gandhi that blood will flow on the streets of India+

...first a warning: if you're the kind who gets yourself offended because you didn't get a joke, you may want to go read something else for the next couple of days.
(I also have a pretty controversial eponymous magazine.) But trust me, I'm not an anti-national!
I’m an architect with a BArch from CSIIT Secunderabad (the twin city that Hyderabad absorbed) and an MArch in Architecture + Urbanism from the Design Research Lab at the Architectural Association, London. Though my practice is very much driven by technology and experimentation...
...my passion also remains deeply-rooted in history and built heritage. Studying architecture in Hyderabad was a unique learning experience that was as valuable outside of the studio (if not more so) as within...

Long thread about what transpired in the Lok Sabha today. Please bear with me.

I opposed the 'anti-women and unconstitutional' #TripleTalaq Bill moved by the @BJP4India government in Lok Sabha today. Here is the full video:
1. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019 violates Articles 14, 15, 21, 26 and 29.
2. The Bill says that the marriage would be legal even if a man gives triple talaq (talaq-e-biddat) to his wife, and would get three years in jail.

On Thursday, #LokSabha passed the contentious #TripleTalaqBill criminalizing instant #talaq (divorce) by #Muslim men, with a jail term of up to three years for the husband. In this THREAD I try to break down different scenarios for you to understand its consequences:
Consider the following different scenarios when a Husband pronounces Triple Talaq instantly:

1) An intoxicated or/and angry husband pronounces 3 talaqs at one go. He later realises his follies and seeks fatwa from ulama as the couple want to stay together
(laughable as it may appear, this is often the case).

Hanafi Fiqh says instant triple talaq will dissolve the marriage, others, most notably Salafis disagree. Now SC too affirmed that instant TT will not annul the marriage.

Reminder thread on #TripleTalaq:
How is anyone supposed to stall a bill if it was not brought into the Rajya Sabha for two sessions?

And now they've passed it as an Ordinance. Whattay joke.
Here's a screenshot from the Official Lok Sabha website on status of the Bill (RS Website is down right now).

And one from @PRSLegislative about the same.
Hasn't even been introduced in the Rajya Sabha yet.
If you want more clarity on how Bill are passed in Parliament (Introduction, Consideration, Voting and Passing), I'm going to leave this here.

Then you decide what the heck is *really* going on.

@amishra77 @virsanghvi This was the strategy of the outliers for a long time:
1) Moghuls became Indians and Indians became Kafirs
2) Nehru-Khan-Maino became Gandhi and Indians became fools
3)Muslims became Kashmiris and #KashmiriPandits became refugees

@indiantweeter
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 4) Bangladeshis became #Bengalis and Bengalis couldn't celebrate #DurgaPuja in soon to be #WestBangladesh
5) Those who are intolerant of #Hindus became #Secular and the real seculars became #Sanghi terrorists
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 6) The #Maoists and #UrbanNaxals became Intellectuals and the Intellectuals became #Bakhts
7) Terrorists became 'poor-sons-of-headmasters' who killed/beheaded army men and the army became human rights violators who used pellet guns on these peaceful terrorists. @adgpi
