Speaking at a webinar about #WrestlerProtests, former #SupremeCourtofIndia judge Madan B Lokur says, "#SupremeCourt should have monitored investigation...Obvious Delhi Police is mixed up. They do not want the investigation to proceed."

#WrestlingProtest #WrestlerProtests Image
Justice Lokur spoke at a webinar on 'The Wrestlers’ Struggle: Accountability of Institutions' organised by ANHAD & National Alliance of People's Movement.

"#SupremeCourtofIndia should have monitored investigation to ensure it did not get derailed, as it has done in the past." Image
Justice Lokur: #SupremeCourtofIndia itself concluded there was a threat. Keeping in mind delay in lodging FIR & threat perception, it should've monitored the investigation...Not with intention to see that accused is convicted, but to ensure nothing goes wrong.

U-17 Nationals, Ranchi Apr'22, Brijbhushan put his hands on her. He then called her to his room. He grabbed her. She struggled, ran out of his room.
She was 15 yrs 4 months old!

She won the Gold medal in her weight category at the Nationals. She had vehemently spurned him.
So Brijbhushan had her final match fixed at Team Trials in Lucknow in June 2022. (There is video of the fixed match).
Rep: (The country wants to know the truth because POCSO Act is most crucial to the case)
Q: When did you find out that something happened with your daughter?
A: We were watching TV. Coverage of #WrestlersProtest in January affected her. Next day she was crying. I then asked her.

2 arguments have come up from the RW ecosystem, to counter crisis.
#WrestlersProtest. Put @MrsGandhi's argument in the corporate context.
Imagine, you're a bright woman. The management spots potential. Sponsors your skill development programs. You perform. You get bonus & Image
promotion. But the moment you accept these, you basically surrender your right to say "No" or resist advances from sexual predators.
That's what you were implying, right @MrsGandhi?
Now, let's come to the #TrainAccident. According to #MeToo accused @Suhelseth, the

Railway Minister has an outstanding CV. So it's "foolish" to demand for his registration for what's probably the worst disaster. Would your management give you a lifeline for a failure that your department is responsible for? Because you've a strong CV?

मेडल के साथ ईनाम में मिले 10 करोड़ के नोट भी गंगा में बहा दिए।

कल का एक अजीब वाक़या सुनिए

पहलवानों ने अपने मेडल गंगा में प्रवाहित करने की घोषणा कर दी थी। मुझे उनसे सहानुभूति है और मैंने इस गंगा-प्रवाह वाली सूचना और पहलवानों के समर्थन में अपनी

facebook प्रोफ़ाइल पर एक पोस्ट डाल दी।

कई लोगों ने like और comments लिखकर अपना समर्थन दिखाने लगे। मेरी friend-list में कुछ अंधभक्त और मूर्ख किस्म के लोग भी हैं। ये लोग सरकार की आलोचना होने वाली प्रत्येक स्थिति में, बिना फीस के पालतू वकील की तरह, विरोधी सवाल और बयानबाज़ी करते हैं Image
क्या मुद्दा है, उसकी क्या संवेदनशीलता है, क्या प्रतिक्रिया देनी चाहिए, ऐसी बातों से इन लोगों को कोई मतलब नहीं होता। इनको सिर्फ अपनी वफ़ादारी दिखाने से मतलब है।

ऐसे ही मेरे एक अंधभक्त-मित्र ने मेरी फ़ेसबुक-वॉल पर तुरंत व्यंग्यात्मक कमेंट किया

Wrestlers full statement. For those who can't read Hindi:
You all saw what happened with us on 28 May, you saw the way the police behaved with us. The urgency with which we were arrested when we were peacefully demonstrating. 1/n

#WrestlersProtest Image
The police also swiftly took away our place of protest and ended up swiftly filing FIRs against us under serious sections.

Have us women wrestlers committed a crime by asking for justice after experience sexual harassment? 2/n

#WrestlersProtest Image
The police and authorities are treating us like criminals when the actual wrongdoer is walking free out in the open. Our lived experiences are becoming matters of laughter on tv. So much so that there's even talk of wanting to bring changes to the POCSO act, ever so casually. 3/n Image

Some of you might have stumbled across Prof.N John Camm.

Chairman, John Camm Inc! Interventional Cardiologist (Senior)! Laser! Research & Innovation! Constructor of Cardiovascular Institutes across Earth! Nuremberg, Germany!

Also a rabid Islamophobe & Narendra Modi Bhakt... Image
Seems inundated in cardiological interventions, beating Narendra Modi in being busy. Had no time except to RT dozens & dozens of medical posts.

This changed a couple of days ago: He compiled a list of ~50 Narendra Mod "achievements" and started some Sanatan Dharma peddling... ImageImageImage
He layered this with generous doses of hate speech against Islam and Muslims. Familiar replacement theory conspiracies, Muslims got Pakistan, Hindus didn't get Hindustan, Appeasement, "secularism" is a dirty word, etc... ImageImageImageImage

#DelhiCourt #wfi #wfiprotest #wrestlers
"The Accused persons are well-known wrestlers who also play international tournaments and any one of them are not physically weak or poor to oppose the alleged offence. So, it is hard to believe that they were harassed by a 66 year old man (Brijbhushan Sharan Singh).…

Protests and protesters are graduating in their design.

Shaheen Bagh ➡️ Farmer's Protest ➡️ Wrestler's Protest

Causing unrest is their plan.

Testing your patience is their achievement.

Shaheen Bagh protests aimed at following:-
1. Assessing Police reaction in case of prolonged blockade created
2. Testing Govt's will to implement the CAA/NRC Bill.
3. Labeling Govt as Islamophobic
During Farmer's Protest , the idea was to label Govt as Anti -Farmer and Anti-Punjab.

Well they succeeded and Govt roll backed the Farmers bill as well as BJP Lost in Punjab.

Vulnerability of Govt's will power was exposed.

Mukul Kesavan writes in the Telegraph:

"It (Ed: the #WrestlersProtest) is made easier by the socially mainstream identities of the protesting wrestlers...they aren’t guilty of being Muslim..."

Kesavan doesn't get it. It's not Hindu/Muslim. It's pro/anti BJP/Modi. (1/)
Those are the only identities that matter in today's India. Are you with Modi or against him? And it doesn't matter how much you supported his actions in the past. One strike, and you are out. You have to show unwavering loyalty. (2/)
And it's not the government or the party that is expecting this. It is the people of the country.

And if they think you are an "anti-national" (if you have ever criticized Modi's government) they will stop buying the products you endorse or watch your films. (3/)
