Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai. A #Thread

With #Geelani being sidelined, will the newly elected #Hurriyat Chief Sehrai make any difference, those who closely follow him say that he is even more hardliner than Geelani & will drown #Kashmir further into chaos

Born in 1944 in Tickipora #Lolab, #Kupwara, his forefathers migrated to this part of #Kashmir before partition hailing from the Khans of #Pakistan. He is a staunch Pro-Pakistan supporter & vehemently advocates Kashmir's annexation to #Pakistan

Sehrai did his initial education from #Sogam & B.A from #AMU. Like many other #Kashmiris, he was taught by #Kashmiri #pandit teachers. One of his childhood teachers was Gopi Nath Kaul..

Young Educated Muslim boys and girls have always been pain in the eyes of the HindutwaRashtra regime.
Be it any political party, they have always designed and supported draconian laws to contain muslims in the name of law and order.

The government on a regular basis carried out planned #Genocide of Muslims which was never reported to the outside world.
After the #BabriMasjid martyrdom Muslims started questioning the political parties who pretended to be the messiah of Muslims.
That created a panic.

Laws like TADA,POTA,MCOCA were brought to picture.
Young Muslim men from #Kashmir and other parts of the country were picked up under false charges only to be found innocent decades after rotting in jail.
Many Muslim men were encountered to fuel the anti-muslim narrative

Thread : Hindu Yuva Vahini
The Hindu Yuva Vahini is a Hindu youth militia founded by Yogi Adityanath.

The organisation has been involved in communal violence. The Hindu Yuva Vahini has been charged by the police in the Mau riots of 2005.

Charges of inciting riots, murder, and arson were brought against Hindu Yuva Vahini leaders
In Jan2007, HYV was accused of burning mosques, homes, buses & trains in Gorakhpur. This led to the arrest of Yogi Adityanath and 130 other members.

After these arrests, the members were suspected of setting ablaze 2 coaches of the Mumbai bound Mumbai-Gorakhpur Godan Express.

When i scan a wide spectrum of opinions, news, random tweets on their own experiences by people who you would not even know in the normal course of events what is very clear is that an entire eco system that ruled India directly or indirectly for 7 decades which insists on status
quo has sensed blood literally & thirsty to taste it. They are convinced that it is just a matter of time before they taste blood. Every last penny is now being thrown for this #CAAProtest & the biggest error of judgement this govt has done is by talking of #NRC. They have thus
given a handle to everybody who was down & out to suddenly get oxygen loaded with testosterone. A complex subject which even the most educated haven't been able to wrap their head around has opened a huge door of opportunity to the old ecosystem. Early in the new govt they sense

(1/n)So in India protest game is going on. Some supporting them, specifically some of #Bollywood ,#Seculars ,self called #intellectuals and some are writing essays on this in social media just to get some likes, shares and comments.
Ok, its good but 1 question:- Image
(2/n)Have anyone read #CABBILL2019?
Or just believing in some whatsapp, fb,twitter shares?
CAB which was passed provides a path for Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian religious minorities from neighbouring "MUSLIM" countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Image
(3/n)Now some will argue
Why not Muslims, they are also tortured??

Ok, so in a officially declared Muslim country where their official religion is Islam and the muslims only in these countries are tortured then we must blame India or that country?

#SupremeCourt hearing in bunch of cases on #JamiaProtest and #AMU protest commences.

#CJI makes it clear that the apex court can't be called upon to first determine facts and then pass orders. "We aren't trial courts," says Justice Bobde.
"Each of these incidents have taken place in different states. There are different situations, different steps taken and different facts. We are not saying it is not serious but we are saying go to a court that can determine the facts first": #SupremeCourt in #JamiaProtest case
Sr adv Indira Jaising argues on coercive action against students.

#CJI retorts: "We aren't prejudging but what can police do when somebody breaks the law...Somebody throwing stones, burning buses...How can we stop them from registering FIRs?"
