On 17th September, India recorded 2.5 crore vaccination in a single day under the aegis of Mahabhiyan to mark Modi's birthday.

But, reports suggested otherwise when ppl recieved fake vaccination certificates. My report for @thecaravanindia

Case study explaining how Modi promised full vaccination by year end but 2 months before 17th September, only 4% of India's population was vaccinated. While in Sept, the government claimed to have vaccinated more than 50%. My report for @VICEWorldNews

#Tripura police has asked Twitter for personal details, like IP and linked phone numbers of multiple users — including lawyers & reporters — under a flimsy excuse: 'potential to flare up communal tension'.
Here's why this is patently illegal. Thread 👇🏽 1/n

Information sought: browsing logs, IP addresses from which the users had logged on, mobile numbers (including verified numbers added for security reasons), and accounts that users had linked into their Twitter account.

This notice is patently illegal as Section 91 of the CrPC does not empower police authorities to block online content, but only enables the production of a document necessary for investigation or inquiry. The power to block online content only exists u/s69A of the IT Act. 3/n

Thread on #Tripura:
It's been more than 3 days that the people of #Tripura have become victims of violence caused by right wing goons.

There are visuals and information being circulated all over the internet but my concern is why only handful of people are talking about it?
Why there isn't much outrage on the violence against the minorities in our country? Is it because it's happening in the North East? Because I know we very conveniently forget that those people are part of our society.

Its been more than 3 days I am trying to given update..
on the issue. I have become a prey of the BJP IT cell now who are threatening and tagging the officials stating that I am spreading fake news and some are even applauding for what is happening with Muslims there.

On #girlchildday let me highlight that how rapes have become every day news but hardly accused are proven guilty & convicted.
Here's a thread to highlight & ask them for real #BetiBachaoBetiPadhao .
Some rape statistics I shall share along with Dalit rapes that are ignored.
Recent stats quoting sources .
More than 32,500 cases of rape were registered with police in 2017, about 90 a day, according to the most recent govt data.
According to the NCRB data, 4,15,786 rape cases were reported across India between 2001 & 2017
On average, 67 women were raped every day across the country during these 17 years, or, in other words, about 3 women had been raped every hour.
While 16,075 cases of rape were reported in 2001 across India, this number rose drastically to 32,559 in 2017 - 103% increase .
