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 .

Thread #India #UttarPradesh In Muzaffarnagar, a woman told us how her home had been vandalised by the police in the dead of the night. Their car, windows, mirrors, electronic appliances, crockery all broken. Jeweller, cash stolen.
She says police told her and her family to leave, and that her home would soon become theirs. She says there were also some people in plain clothes with the police. She says #Muslim families are living in terror in #UttarPradesh
Photos from another home in the neighbourhood. They also told us police barged in at night and broke everything. We heard similar stories in every #Muslim locality we went to. #India #UttarPradesh Police have denied the allegations & told the BBC they've recd no such complaints

Here's another CCTV video from Uttar Pradesh's Meerut, near to where the violence that killed the five men on Dec. 20 took place, showing police hitting a CCTV camera at a shop on that street. #CAA2019 #India #protests
One of the 5 who died in Meerut that day was Zaheer Ahmed, shot in the head as he was sitting next to a beedi shop.

“I don’t know who engaged in the violence, but my husband didn’t,” his wife said. “Why did they kill my innocent husband? How can they kill innocent people?”

Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija Mufti on Friday asked whether J&K was an integral part of #India or a colony.

J&K is not a colony. It is an integral part of #India. It is #Kashmir based parties who treated India as their colony by playing the separatist card.
Iltija Mufti also said that that #Article370 had nothing to do with development.

Only a person who lives outside the state can afford to be so ignorant. Iltija Mufti lives in Chennai and enjoys all the facilities which are not available here in #Kashmir.
#Article370 and 35A were responsible for J&K's backwardness while only benefiting a select few like the separatists, politicians of mainstream political parties of #Kashmir and their families.

🇮🇳 Cette focalisation sur les enjeux économiques et sociaux aux dépends des enjeux identitaires, si elle se confirme dans les mois à venir, pourrait créer des tensions au sein de la vaste famille des nationalistes hindous, le #SanghParivar. A suivre donc.
🇮🇳 Le nouveau cabinet de @narendramodi compte 58 membres. L'entrée la plus importante est celle de l'ancien dirigeant du @BJP4India @AmitShah au poste de ministre de l'Intérieur. Cet organisateur de génie a largement contribué aux victoires de #Modi. business-standard.com/article/politi…

@ani7709 Nagpur - BJP

Although there may not be lead as much as last time for BJP, BJP is in comfortable position to win this seat.

Nana Patole uplifted spirit of INC cadre as he fought against heavyweight minister Gadkari. Gadkari couldn't move out of Nagpur for a while in this phase.
@ani7709 Bhandara-Gondiya - BJP

A neck to neck contest. BJP put a good fight in by poll held previously. Due to Nana Patole moved to Nagpur to contest, BJP somewhat got a relief to make this seat workout.
Both BJP & NCP put fresh candidates. It is going to be a cadre vs cadre fight.
@ani7709 Gadchiroli-Chimur - BJP
No any other CM has visited Gadchiroli as much as Devendra Fadnavis did. Development work has put edge to BJP in this seat.

Dozens of villages in West UP lead hellish lives as a highly polluting industry has killed the river irrigating their region and has contaminated groundwater+soil to the extent they've given up groundwater consumption entirely.

My report for @SwarajyaMag coming shortly.
#Meerut's slaughterhouses first killed their river.

Now meat plants have contaminated their groundwater to the extent that they had to stop its use entirely.

My report from Western #UttarPradesh of a highly polluting industry and the state's abdication. swarajyamag.com/politics/groun…
This is state of groundwater in villages affected by slaughterhouses and meat plants in #Meerut's #Kharkhauda.

Govt has set up overhead water tanks away from villages with piped connections to villages BUT that's it. Villagers maintain those tanks w/ their own money.

At #YMCA #Mumbai for #CSSS's panel discussion on the book "#BabriMasjid, 25 years on..."
.@irfanen begins by describing how the book came about. A little bit of analysis, not so much about whether it is #RamJanmbhoomi. The various authors. But important to look back, understand how we got to Narendra Modi as PM.

After 25 years, Babri pops up mostly at election time
"All kinds of things are happening, yet there is dream of hope." People of India have always given the message that we are not going to believe your "politics of memory" every time elections come. More so now, with the semifinal results.

Muslim girls in a government orphanage married off to Hindu grooms. Officials' amazing response. m.dailyhunt.in/news/india/hin…
#UttarPradesh
This is not the first such incident. This happened in Western UP in the past, there was a furore & then silence. The state can't distinguish in theory but in orphanages, kids made to follow majoritarian practices. One can choose after growing up but not making arrangements for...
I am aware of several incidents. In one orphanage, the superintendent herself told local Muslims to shift Muslims girls to another orphanage (take them from here). It was exception and the city had a Muslim orphanage, which is not very common, else it was not possible.
