Thread | Today, the National Investigation Agency arrested Hany Babu, a Delhi University professor, in relation to the #BhimaKoregaon case. Eleven other public intellectuals are currently in jail in connection to the case.

Our coverage of the case:
Varavara Rao, a poet and one of the #BhimaKoregaon11, has tested positive for COVID-19.

Despite Rao's family raising an alarm over his health, the jail superintendent had claimed, "His condition is normal and stable, the issue is regarding his old age."
“Is this the reward he gets for writing and publishing scores of books that the world appreciates, just because the establishment is uncomfortable with these?"

From March, an open letter by Anand Teltumbde’s daughters:

Hello, now that we know that UAPA is a repressive law that needs to go. What can we do for #RepealUAPA? As we build this online dialogue against UAPA, it's important that we continue to amplify the voices of those fighting against UAPA at the grassroots. 1/n
For today's thread, @meeracomposes has collated grassroots efforts against UAPA & resources that can be used to read, educate & agitate against #uapa. Meera is a national convenor of @napmindia, & is an active member of several women's & trans rights movements. 2/n

Hello, we are @GuneetKaurAhuja and @aimanjkhan. Today, we examine how UAPA became a handy tool for the party in power to manipulate investigations into mass violence incidents, protect real perpetrators, quell peaceful protests & persecute protestors & other rights defenders. 1/n
This is an old sinister strategy, used by the party in power after 2002 anti-Muslim pogrom, as well. Then, investigations were botched to protect perpetrators & POTA used to further persecute Muslim community & silence those demanding accountability. 2/n…
Similar strategies have been used by the party in power post targeted mass violence in #BhimaKoregaon & #Delhi. The aim of perpetrators in both episodes was to violently attack & shut peaceful assertions of constitutional equality by minorities & marginalized. 3/n

Hello, we are @aimanjkhan & @GuneetKaurAhuja. Today, we will discuss how #UAPA gives wide powers to the government to facilitate prolonged incarceration of human rights defenders, & gives the police a multi-purpose tool to target innocent minorities. 1/n
As a 1st step, let's recap some of the wide discretionary powers that investigating agencies get, to decide who will be targeted by UAPA. It is totally at the whim of the government on which organization is banned & which is not. 2/n
At an all-state DGP’s conference, DGP’s of Maharashtra, MP & Rajasthan had made a strong plea for a concurrent ban on Bajrang Dal & SIMI as ‘internal terrorist organizations.’ However, only SIMI- a Muslim organization was banned under UAPA. See- 3/n

Here's why #PalgharMobLynching case is NOT COMMUNAL ACCORDING TO @OfficeofUT Govt & Why they lynched Sadhus.
CPM & Kashtakari Sanghatna used to be rivals ages ago. They settled the scores & became partners in crime. Fully sponsored & supported by NCP, Congress & ISI.
Moto "Conversion" & "Break India" newly termed as BHARAT TERE TUKDE HONGE INSHALLAH INSHALLAH.
They are Anti Hindu & idea of India. All terror attacks were permitted by #AntoniaMaino. Mumbai suffered the most because of @PawarSpeaks. ISI,Dawood Con NCP are friends with benefits.
@OfficeofUT is nothing but a puppet. Bullet Train project was scrapped for Brian Lobo, Pradip Prabhu who is backed by CPM, NCP, Congress. All #UrbanNaxals like #GautamNavlakha #AnandTeltumbde #ArundhatiRoy etc. are funded by the same people for same agenda.
Bottom line samjhlo.

Caste Based Reservation in India Started in 2nd Century BC. In #Manusmriti - the law book of Brahmins all the laws were based on #Caste and no Merit was ever considered. It divided people into High & Low Castes on the basis of their birth and not on the basis of Merit.
Wealth, Political power, Spiritual leadership, Education, Ownership of Land, Trade and all lucrative aspects were reserved purely to the higher castes. This system of caste based discrimination entrenched in day today social life since ages.

INX Media: Hearing in the Supreme Court on P Chidambaram's petition for anticipatory bail in case registered by the Enforcement Directorate begins.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta begins to make the submission for the agency.

Every PMLA offence has two dimensions - predicate offence and laundering. Money laundering is a separate offence independent from the predicate/scheduled offence, Mehta.

We would be dealing with very intelligent people. A stupid man cannot launder money. Money laundering requires layers and layers of concealment, Mehta
