@TarekFatah @Payal_Rohatgi @pokershash @desimojito We will organise together more after JNU riots and we are distributing invitations in mosques so more people will come and we will disrupt Delhi. Nehru was fascist. Kashmir mein dhoka hua
@TarekFatah @Payal_Rohatgi @pokershash @desimojito We made a platform to raise our voice & we're 200 people from JNU. This video was uploaded on facebook by group ‘Mu$lim Students of JNU’. Not only in Delhi but also in every city where Muslims are, there should be roadblock. Don't give damn to Congress

Majeed Ullah Khan (@MBTparty President) Statement on #SupremeCourt Refusing Interim Stay on #CAA; Challenges @AmitShah to Visit Ongoing #ShaheenBaghProtests to Face Public Instead of TV Debates. #CAA_NRC_Protests Read Full: /1
He contended that #ConstitutionofIndia is “Common Sense” codified. It's clear that #CitizenshipAmendmentAct goes against numerous Articles. It's appalling that Court deferred hearings in refusal to put interim stay on draconian #CAA and modified #NationalPopulationRegister /2
People’s trust in a truly secular, non-partisan #SupremeCourt is wavering. Moreover, refusal on interim #CAA stay has common public concerned regarding growing, free reign of a bigoted, right-wing #RSS-#BJP specter looming over nation that we continue to battle on all fronts. /3

Even as protests over #CAA rage across India, a review of government orders (GO) by TOI shows that the government has been steadily placing hurdles in the way of Muslims seeking Indian citizenship since December 2014. #ConstitutionBench #NRC #SupremeCourt…
The most significant GO is the October 22, 2018 amendment to the Passport (Entry into India) Rules, 1950 and Foreigners Act, 1946, discriminating against Muslims and atheists for the grant of long-term visas (LTVs). The changed LTV regulations say..
, “Only members of minority communities in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, namely, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians, are eligible to apply for long-term visas.”

#CAA hearing begins in the #SupremeCourt. Attorney General KK Venugopal starts by saying the Centre has prepared a preliminary affidavit that will be filed today. Sibal asks for a #Constitution Bench to which #CJI replies saying this might go to the larger bench

Sibal: NPR begins in April so some interim order could be issued..

Centre opposes it, saying arguments will have to be made if any interim plea has to be argued.

AM Singhvi cites UP example, says this is an irrevocable process.

CJI: We may ask them to issue some temporary permits for the time being.

AG: The law itself talks about taking back the citizenship in certain situation.

Excellent story on how the govt has been steadily placing hurdles for Muslims seeking Indian citizenship. To those pro #CAA saying "Muslims can apply for citizenship in the normal route," here's why they can't: not eligible for Long Term Visa, the first step to get citizenship
Muslims from Bangaldesh, Pak, Afghanistan have to pay 213 times the overstay penalty Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Christians, Jain's from there pay.
RBI changed rules in March 2018, so that Muslims from Pak, Afghanistan & Bangladesh cannot get Long Term Visas and cannot buy land or open bank accounts. Hindus, Sikhs, Jain's, Buddhists, Christians from these countries can. All this before #CAA.…

Shiromani Akali Dal declares that it would prefer not to contest elections in Delhi than sacrificing the interests of the minorities or compromising on the secular principles taught to us by the great Guru Sahiban. /1
#CAA #NRC #DelhiElections2020
India is a secular country with rich religious, cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity. This diversity is the strength of our unity. We can't compromise on this vision of India for which ancestors have made supreme sacrifices: SAD leadership /2
#CAA #NRC #DelhiElections2020
There are strong ideological differences between the SAD & BJP on the issue of #CAA on which the former wants Muslims to be included in the Act, and also on the #NRC which the SAD is firmly opposed to and can never support: S. @mssirsa /3

18L out of #NRC in #Assam are going to be imprisoned here. Some of them are being used as labor to build these detention centres. Are liberal Indians silent because 15L of 18L are Hindus? Don't they even care about the 3L Muslims? And 90% of the 18L are citizens. Not immigrants.
Members of the foreign tribunals in Assam are hired with huge salaries & perks to kick maximum out of #NRC. If they don't meet a quota they are given a bad report & fired. One member said they love their perks but up to 14L kicked out EASILY are citizens…
Quite unforgivable how some lawyers have been misleading the public on #CAA. The 15L Hindus out of Assam #NRC will have to prove their religion & Bangladeshi citizenship before CAA can be applied. WHY or HOW will they do that when they are Indians? Thread

#FalseFlag #Kashmir
#AfzalGuru claimed he had no choice but to comply with Davinders orders, took Muhammad to Delhi & got a house rented fr him, he also helped him purchase a car. Afzal witnessed Muhammads regular communication with Davinder b4 the attacks on Indian Parliament.

When #RedJihadi nexus started boycot of Hindus who support #CAA & closed down their shops in protest to #CAA ; Hindus woke up & started opening shops in Kuttyadi, Kozhikode

Yes, we too need to survive & have no intention to cow down to #RedJihadi threats
Many Hindu shops were forced to close down in past two decades due to lack of funds to compete with petro dinars and riyals pumped into market.
We are now paying the price for our lack of unity and tendency to go behind short term benefits by ditching the age old shops of 'Kumarettan' & 'Sathishettan' for the posh 'Supermarket'

Hypocrisy @SenatorMenendez! You supported & named the Lautenberg Amendment giving fast-track asylum to only Jews and Evang. Christians from certain countries. Now you condemn India for fast-tracking persecuted Hindus #CAA. Perplexing double-standard.(1/n)…
@SenatorMenendez #CAA: fast-tracks only those persecuted minorities in India as of 2014.
Lautenberg: Not only indefinite, but added Iranian Jews, Christian, Bahai (excluding Muslims). Why not Iranian Sunnis? Zoroastrians?

Is Lautenberg anti-Muslim, as you deem #CAA?…
@SenatorMenendez What about #atheists or ex-Muslims? Didn't they deserve LA protection? #CAA would be improved with neutral language…. LA too. @SenatorMenendez's targeting India is ill-informed. A million #IndianAmericans in New Jersey deserve better and will take note.

. @KTRTRS talking about CAA protests. He goes on to say, something is wrong hence there are protests. Why are Muslims subjected to secular tests?
For people who do not understand telugu, I'll tweet the translation done by @SayeedMA
KTR Talks - Why do you think we have this protests? Do you think people are protesting for no reason? Why are people doubting only CAA Act? In the past, Modi government had passed controversial bills such as #TripleTalaq, #370 etc and there was no protest? Why only this?
We asked the Modi govt in Parliament that u are willing to grant Indian citizenship to minorities from other countries, why singling out Muslims? What's wrong in what we asked? We never got an answer to this. I heard a BJP leader from WB talking about shooting the protestors?

Dear @satyanadella let me give u few instances of foreign immigrants building formidable companies in India-
1) Larsen & Toubro- earlier avatar of L&T was started by
Henning Holck-Larsen & Søren Kristian Toubro, 2 Danish refugees in 1938. Company made it big during license regime
Another ex for @satyanadella is that of FabIndia - started in 1960s by John Bissell, an American working for Ford Foundation, advising govt on carpet and cottage industries. That co too made it big. Besides this, can list many such coz. Spare us of ur BS pls
And much much before L&T and FabIndia, @satyanadella , we have instances of two journalists Thomas Bennette and Frank Morris Coleman starting, what we now know as flagship of owners of @TOIIndiaNews - just in case, u don’t know- co name is still same Bennette & Coleman

1/16 One provision in Citizenship Amend. Act in India focuses on Overseas Citizens of India (OCI). #CAA is being challenged by people for linking citizenship to religion & its likely use for taking away citizenship from those who can't produce documents, particularly Muslims.
2/16 Here I want to focus on the OCI provision in #CAA and its linkages to diasporic politics.
3/16 OCI is a highly watered down version of dual citizenship where Indian origin person with another citizenship is allowed certain rights like not requiring visa, buying property, staying for longer periods without other rights that are given to dual citizens in most countries.
