Ram Madhav tries his hand at Mansplaining. "The Act is not an Act", he says. "It is an amendment to the original Act". Duh! It looks like he has read just the Title of the Citizenship Amendment Act #CAA - and assumes that qualifies him to expound on it. Typical #Sanghi.
Let me - a non-lawyer explian the #CAA to @Rammadhav. I promise I wont touch on the NCR - that really shows up the true intent oif the CAA. For now I'll focus solely on the Act.
1. It is not the Citizenship Amendment Act. It is to be pedantic, the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
The Citizenship Act of 1955 now stands amended. Most importantly, section 2, sub-section (1), clause (b) of the 1955 Act now has this additional proviso inserted:

BJP's failure in winning 'intellectual' debate became most apparent in #CAA. Reason lies with party. I worked in this space 4 too long to kno how long term agendas are set. Why intellectualism is equated to #Left leaning among a section in #WestBangal & #India. 1/n
I have been consistent in saying that #CAA is a major correction to the historic neglect to human tragedies from sustained flight of #Hindu & other minority from #EastPakistan/#Bangladesh. It's unfinished job of #Partition. 2/n
#Secularism will be threatened only when #India wil institutionally discriminate between two sets of citizens, as it happened in #Pakistan & #Bangladesh not by virtue of giving citizenship 2 d discriminated/persecuted in this 2 countries born out of discriminatory principles. 3/n

#Thread #FactCheck
.@chennaipolice_, among the best police force in #India, has had some pretty ordinary and Laughable leadership. Unfortunately, this ends up affecting the force in all spheres of functioning. For instance, the insinuation that @gayatrikl is a #Pakistani agent
The Commissioner pointed to @gayatrikl's @Facebook home page, and declared that he would investigate the #Pakistan connection.
Yes, Mr. Commissioner, #ISI operatives have been instructed via a @ImranKhanPTI's circular that they should declare that they work for Pak firms on FB
If indeed it's true, @chennaipolice_ should be hauled up for dereliction of duty because, until @gayatrikl came out to draw a #KolamProtestAgainstCAA, the police didn't know her Pak connection!!! So, what are you doing in your social media monitoring cell?

Regarding installation of barbed wire fencing to prevent #Rohingya #refugees from leaving their camps, I found the comment by @KellyTClements Deputy High Commissioner of UN Refugee Agency, particularly disturbing. medium.com/@shafiur/caged…
"We’ll try to see how it can be implemented in a way that doesn’t adversely affect the refugee community nor the host". Sounds like there was no objection, yet this is such a backwards and damaging move for the well being and rights of #Rohingya #refugees.
It was exactly this type of pandering to Myanmar authorities by UN agencies that allowed the unfolding of the Rohingya genocide to take place, and now it sounds like they are taking the same approach in Bangladesh.

#Flashback2019

It’s that time of the year when we look back on how India charted new pathways in #Diplomacy and left an imprint on the global agenda.
The year began with the 10th #IndiaJapan Strategic Dialogue, which provided a platform for blossoming of deep rooted ties into a special strategic & global partnership
The then Japanese Foreign Minister @konotaromp attended the summit along with the former EAM Smt. Sushma Swaraj
@konotaromp @MofaJapan_en @IndianEmbTokyo @PIB_India A World Reorder: New Geometries; Fluid Partnerships; Uncertain Outcomes.
The 4th edition of @raisinadialogue, a flagship annual geopolitical and geostrategic conference, was organised by @orfonline and @MEAIndia

#CABProtests #Assam
@abhijitmajumder The apprehension to accept #IllegalImmigrants from #Bangladesh has forced thousands of #Assamese to protest against the #CABBill2019: Nazimuddin Siddique on #CABBill

Day 3 - last day of #ICJ provisional measures hearings, #TheGambia v #Myanmar #GenocideConvention #Rohingya. First up, #TheGambia Reichler: Myanmar not denied UN #FFM conclusion of “inference of genocidal intent” or the 7 indicators; 2019 report para 224 - extreme brutality;
Quoted ASSK admission of #IHL violations; ignoring of #sexual violence; #hate narratives - commander in chief Min Aung Hlaing #Facebook page quoted; discriminatory policies including #citizenship law & NVC process; govt tolerance of hate; failure to investigate prosecute
This last one was the only point disputed by Myanmar - “what state is she talking about?” - military justice system must investigate & prosecute - difficulties admitted by ASSK; how can the #Tatmadaw hold itself accountable when top 6 commanders recommend for prosecution?

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

Ok folks - Day 2 of the #ICJ #Gambia v #Myanmar provisional measures hearings going to start - important as no submissions yet by Myanmar so, first formal indication of their legal strategy. [I’ll be away on an interview for a bit so hoping we have other “live tweeters”?? :)]
Agent of Myanmar: #ASSK takes the floor as minister for foreign affairs (is this the first time an agent doesn’t have a legal background); #genocide convention “wholeheartedly” signed by Myanmar; not applied to Kosovo or exodus of Serb population from Croatia. No Specific intent
Incorrect factual situation presented to court; though suffering of innocent people. #Rakhine state background - internal armed conflict; Arakan army seeks independence; displacement & conflict, affecting civilians

A short #Thread to dispel doubts on #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019
Q) Does the Bill disallow citizenship for #Muslim migrants ?
A) NO , The bill merely mandates any #Muslim migrant to spend 11 yrs resident in #India before applying for citizenship.
Q) Does #CitizenAmendmentBill discriminate against #Muslims who are citizens of #India or remove any privilege of citizenship they hold?
A) No, the #CABBill makes no comment on the citizenship of existing #Muslim citizens.
Q) Why does the bill disallow #Muslim migrants from #Pakistan #Afghanistan & #Bangladesh from it's ambit.
A) The Bill is meant to provide a safety valve for minorities in adjoining nations who do not wish to live under a #Islamic regime. #Muslims are a majority in these nations.

Bangladesh had 22% of Hindu population in 1951. In 1961-18.5%.
In 1981 -12%, in 1991-10%, in 2001 reduced to 9%.. why is it on a constant decline.. where would they take shelter if not in India?
#CitizenshipAmendmentBill
Atrocities on Hindus of #Bangladesh 👇🏼
Correction, it was *29.7% during partition.
Can the fake liberals, leftists & anti Hindus answer the cause of decline of Hindu population in #Bangladesh ??
Atrocities on Hindus of BD numbered to be 3282 in 2016- 2018, 2017,
806 incidents occurred in 2018, 1008 in 2017 & 1471 in 2016!

A short story on #Left, #Congress, #TMC and #MIM duplicity.
Author @taslimanasreen had to flee #Bangladesh after #Islamists / #Jamaatis called for her death for her book 'Lajja'. The book dealt with terrible attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh post-Babri demolition. #CAB 1/n
Taslima had to be literally smuggled out of Bangladesh to #Sweden. She wanted to live in #India, more specifically in #Kolkata , to be near her homeland. The ABV Govt gave her a long-term residence visa. Taslima set up home in Kolkata and lived on her writings. #CAB 2/n
Muslim leaders jn Kolkata were never comfortable with her presence. @cpimspeak then in power in #WestBengal banned her autobiography (courts later removed the ban). The #Left Front engineered anti-Taslima riots with the help of a #Congress Muslim leader (with TMC now). #CAB 3/n

Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Choudhury calls #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019 regressive,anti-minority. @AmitShah hits back: says Bill not even .001%anti minority. Says will respond to every point raised by Congress but tells them not to `Walk Out' when he is responding. @IndiaToday
@AmitShah @IndiaToday TMC's Saugata Roy says #Constitution in danger. As MPs oppose, Prof Roy says: will you hit me now. Come hit me. Claims #CitizenshipAmendmentBill discriminatory. One Nation,one law BJP says but leaves Sixth schedule areas & inner line permit with citizenship Bill. TMC opposes bill

Judge G R Wani, a muslim Judge wrote in her bail order for Bitta Karate - "I know this man is guilty, but the prosecutor is not interested in prosecuting the case."

This was the perversion of democracy that 3% #KashmiriPandits faced as a majority in Kashmir valley.
@neelakantha
@neelakantha The minority 97% Kashmiri Muslims committed a genocide on the majority 3% Kashmiri Pandits. Remember Hindus are majority, wherever they be.

Approx. 1,40,000 Kashmiri Pandits were arm-twisted, bullied, looted, maimed, stabbed, raped, killed, slaughtered. 1,00,000 fled.
@neelakantha Our pervert democracy stood silent, shameless to not even shed a tear or two, insolent to go as far as shaking hands with murderers-terrorists turned separatists like Yasin Malik.

Can the family of a Pakistani PM visit #Bangladesh & spend a week visiting as guests of the state & be celebrated by the Bengali upperclass? How many years does it take to forgive & forget mass rape, murder & economic subjugation? Is 70 years the magic number? 1/n

#royalvisit
Is our culture that forgiving? Sure guests should always be honored but what if those guests belong to a tribe that took away EVERYTHING from our forefathers? Perhaps those celebrating are the same people who remained their junior partners in crime. The British Raj was brutal 2/n
Millions of our fellow countrymen perished for no fault of their own. Still diplomatic norms dictate we show respect for int’l guests, as no one is innocent really. But do we have to sing & dance in the streets when our hearts feel lingering pain caused by their actions 3/n

The consolidation of anti-#India protests, fuelled by brutal killing of an engineering student, over a silly water share agreement and now a clash between BGB & BSF indicate potential political turmoil in #Bangladesh.
1/n.
BSF/BGB became history as two countries came closer over the last 10 years. At a time when two govts signing defence cooperation pacts BGB's offensive raises many questions. More so, due 2 #Bangladesh #Army's general influence over BGB. 2/n

The incident took place in the backdrop of swelling of protests over #Feni river sharing pact. Feni is a small river dividing #Bangladesh and #india's #Tripura state. People of Tripura were already using river water. An interim pact regulated it. 3/n

We cannot call it #India-#Bangladesh prime ministerial meeting in true sense of the term, since #SheikhHasina came to the WEF meeting. The bilateral visit is scheduled later. However despite its limited scope I find the meeting very encouraging and beneficial for either side. 1/n
Key takeaways from #Modi-#SheikhHasina
Meeting 1) The LPG deal is consequent to #India's decision to invest in LPG terminal in #Chittagong. With time we wil see rise in supplies and #Bangladesh-#NorthEast LPG pipeline. 2/n
LPG deal is a mirror of #India-Bangladesh #diesel pipeline with the exception that in the case of #LPG, #Bangladesh is also getting #FDI. This is early stages of creation of a regional oil & gas grid, which may be expanded to #CLMV #Asean in the days to come. #Modi- #Hasina
