THREAD 🧵

COVID-19 isn’t the world’s ‘great leveller’.

It’s impact has revealed how the social and economic inequalities that surround us are much deeper, more pervasive and much more problematic than we thought. #AllHailTheLockdown
Episode 4 @hey_alirae looks at:

India: #socialdistancing as privilege
Caste: compounding injustice with cruelty
Gender inequality & the value of essential workers
COVID between neighbourhoods

With #ArundhatiRoy @BezwadaWilson @josefinamar14 & @mfranco_uah. #AllHailTheLockdown
@hey_alirae @BezwadaWilson @josefinamar14 @mfranco_uah The COVID-19 lockdowns sent shockwaves across India. It was instantly obvious that the virus was much more brutal on those who have less, are marginalised & systematically oppressed. Arundhati Roy explains. #AllHailTheLockdown

#ArundhatiRoy must know, in India, no one really becomes casteless just because he/she is a Christian. Dalit Christians continue to face discrimination to this day. Isn’t Roy, the radical Left activist, aware of this? @aroybot
The fact that she can claim to be casteless only proves her privilege — lower castes in India can’t afford to conveniently forget their caste. #ArundhatiRoy #aazadi
She also claimed that Brahmanism is, in fact, not about Brahmins“The anti-caste movement has traditionally used this word ‘Brahminism It isn’t about Brahmins but the idea of this kind of caste hierarchy. So,it isn’t just Brahmins that practice Brahminism.” @aroybot #ArundhatiRoy

Globalization is a process that's repeatedly happened in waves, which often break in pandemics like Covid-19. To find our way forward we need to understand the forces involved, not just the virus. At @Salon 1/18

While Covid-19's mortality rate is lower than previous pandemics, neoliberal globalization is *deliberately* more fragile & future pandemics loom. *Resilience* should be a guiding principle in response. 2/18
But visionaries like #ArundhatiRoy need to understand the history-shaping forces they're up against described by @Peter_Turchin's explanation of the dynamic. 3/18

If you didn’t get chance to watch Arundhati Roy live in conversation with @imaniperry last night then you should absolutely check out the @haymarketbooks discussion on why #COVID19 is the portal into one of two worlds...

The pandemic and its consequences provide an opportunity for reflection and a chance to undo the terrible rounds inflicted on the planet - and other humans - by the human race. But there are others who want to deepen the injustice and inflict more and more damage #ArundhatiRoy
We may be a common humanity but #COVID19 is not affecting everyone in the same way. The virus has worked like an x-ray explosing the bones of injustice in our societies and amplifying the inequalities #ArundhatiRoy

Everyone including the Government knows who is she.
By summarizing her entire career & work one can conclude that She is the link between ISI & Left Exterimist organisation. undoubtedly dear to Congress.
Many sedition charges against her destroyed during UPA ImageImageImageImage
#ArundhatiRoy (1/2)
most amazing is that knowing all her #Arundhati acts of anti-India nature Why Congress-led UPA protected Her!!!
Arundhati has been working as an axle rod between the #UrbanNaxals & anti-India campaigners of abroad. A report of PAK defence (now deleted) ImageImage
#ArundhatiRoy (1/3)
The Link with Left extremist is one side another side is #Arundhati 's link with Banned JKLF, Jammat ud Dawa is quite conspicuous.
She got Soros patronisation besides ISI
She is regarded as #IronLady of anti-India network Image

#ArundhatiRoy's "apology" compounds her lies in the service of Pakistan's #ISI. Her "apology" claims that the Islamic State of Pakistan and its murderous army "morally equivalent" to India's, just a step down from it being "better."

Professional liar.

Here is my article from Manushi nearly 15 years ago pointing out how Arundhati Roy is a good sepoy of the "imperialism" she claims to be fighting.

docs.google.com/viewer?url=htt…
In her "apology" #ArundhatiRoy says "I do not believe that the States of India, Pakistan or Bangladesh are in any way morally superior to one another. "

So, being an Islamic State is morally the same as a secular state. Isn't this a slap on the face of Indian seculars?

But, what first helped create the “illusion” that was Mother Teresa?

The answer: Malcolm Muggeridge ‘s 1969 documentary & 1971 book titled “Something Beautiful for God.”
