My book is here!

In the UK, women of #bangladeshi background experience some of the highest levels of employment disadvantage, although participation in #HE is increasing. I wanted to understand more about these inequities & the role of #class #ethnicity and #gender

Thread: BSF Soldiers Disarmed by Bengali Farmers

Two #BSF jawans were attacked and their weapons snatched allegedly by Bangladeshi farmers who sneaked into India to graze their cattle in West Bengal’s Murshidabad district on 26 Feb 2023.
The incident happened near the Nirmalchar border outpost in Ranitala police station area when two jawans of the 35th Battalion were patrolling. On noticing that a group of #Bangladeshi farmers was crossing the border to graze their cattle on fields of #Indianfarmers.....,
...the jawans intercepted them. Soon, hundreds of people from #Bangladesh crossed over to India, and attacked the jawans with sticks and ‘dah’ a sharp-edged tool mainly used in farming as per #BSF. BSF said the Border Guards Bangladesh (#BGB) was informed about the incident...,

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

🪡 A cute question on the #HijabRow in #Karnataka is: “Why can’t the CM stop it when it’s ruining the State’s image?”

Answer: “Have you seen @BSBommai’s record?”

He was home minister for 23 months from Aug 2019. It was because he met all the KPIs that he was made @CMofKarnataka
2️⃣ @BSBommai was home minister when school children in #Bidar were charged with sedition, for a line in a play that “insulted” @narendramodi during the anti-CAA protests. Bommai had the temerity to say: “It is a very serious and sensitive case.”

3️⃣ @BSBommai is an “educated” politician, an engineer. In #Bidar, the school children charged with sedition were between 9 and 12 years of age. Najumunissa, 35, a single mother, spent a week in jail because police under Bommai’s watch charged her Class V daughter. @IndianExpress

#DelhiRiots accused Umar Khalid in his arguments in a Delhi Court said that nothing illegal happened at the #CAA protest sites & involvement of PFI was later shown only to make the situation muddier,"

A witness had alleged the involvement of Popular Front of India (PFI). Image
Khalid's lawyer Adv Trideep Pais also argued against the allegation that on Khalid's father's instance 250 #bangladeshi women were called to the protests sites and Khalid made a statement that Bangladeshis should be sensitized.
#DelhiRiots #UmarKhalid
Adv. Pais said that the statements of the witnesses alleging PFI's involvement and 250 Bangladeshi women having been called were fabricated.
He said that there was no physical evidence and it was just prosecution's 'tadka' to the whole story.

A #Bangladeshi man had supplied 5000 girls over the years to diff parts of India in last few years.
I am shocked! 😦

He hs bn arrested with 6 others in #Indore. His wife ran an NGO in BD, sent girls to India for work, the man pushed ‘em into flesh trade.
Momin aka Vinay Dutt , used to get the girls to illegally cross into India. But 5000 of them? HOW? 😨 Appears to b a HIGH PROFILE case. When police arrested him he had MDMA drugs + 14 mobiles. Had been moving to & fro frm Mumbai to Indore.
INTELLIFENCE AGENCIES are on alert! This kinda mess definitely has some BIG netas involved. Theres no way 5000 of them could hv crossed via Bengal sans the knowledge of a BIG neta.

A Picture worth Sharing...

This photo is of Sikh Soldier when they entered Pakistan during 1971 war. The Pakistani army abandoned Everything, Everyone & Ran away, the Sikh Soldier found this old lady left behind by Pakistani army in a Pakistani village, Sikh Soldier #IndianArmy Image
helped the old lady, gave her food, it is written in the documented file that he even cleaned her.

When Sikh Soldiers entered East Pakistan (now known as Bangladesh), they found many houses full of Bangladeshi women, these women were kept by west Pakistan army, they raped the
#Bangladeshi women. #Sikh soldiers gave their jackets, even many Sikh soldiers removed the turbans from head & gave it to those naked women to cover their bodies.


Lets Salute these warriors.

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.

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.
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

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.
