This is a hard time for mental health activists, advocates and user-survivors. So much muck's flying around that it feels like decades of hard work to build a mental health movement has come undone.

But it hasn't.

A 🧵to remind ourselves we have plenty to take heart from.+
Not long ago, India got @mhca2017, with the revolutionary promise of making mental healthcare accessible to every Indian.

Despite big execution challenges, "the world should watch, listen and learn," said the British Journal of Psychiatry 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿 +
cambridge.org/core/journals/…
Just last year, @CareGapIndia made history by getting mental health in the manifesto of not one but *two* national political parties.

In a country where health in general has never been seen as an election issue, this was *huge* 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿. +

Today lawyer @pbhushan1 filed a reply to the contempt petition against him from the Supreme Court. Some highlights:
"Tweet regarding the CJI riding a motorcycle
(6 June) was made primarily to underline my anguish at the non physical functioning of the SC for the last more than 3 months, as a result of which fundamental rights of citizens, such as those in detention, those destitute & poor..."
"... and others facing serious and urgent grievances were not being addressed or taken up for redressal...The fact that he was on a motorcycle costing 50 lakhs owned by
a BJP leader had been established by documentary evidence published on social media..."

It's clear that #AnuragThakur, #PraveshVarma and #KapilMishra gave provoking statements, Govt should take action on them and #TusharMehta you are Solicitor General of India,not private lawyer of BJP. Stop defending people who are not related to Central Govt.
Let's think, wasn't there any riots before their statements? Wasn't buses were burn in the name of saving dEmOcRaCy? Wasn't AAP MLA's (especially #AmanatullahKhan) also gave provoking speeches? (Which is the root of all this nonsense) Wasn't he shared stage with #SharjeelImam?
Wasn't Delhi Dy CM #ManishSisodia spread fake news by sharing old video of Delhi police saying Police lit up the buses? Wasn't #NDTV journos gave limelight to so called 'Sheros of #Jamia' who doesn't believe in Secularism and Judiciary of this country & rushed to defend Sharjeel?

@rajinikanth Sir, you have said students should not be misled &should consult elders/learned people about #CAA_NRC #NPR .Can you kindly answer a few questions so that we are all enlightened?1.What will happen to those who are unable to produce docs needed to prove citizenship?1/n
2.If a Hindu from say, Tamil Nadu or Karnataka does not have documents what happens to him or her and likewise if a Muslim from TN does not have documents what happens to them?
3. Do you support the concept of putting people in detention camps ? 2/n
4. Do you support disenfranchisement of/removal of all Govt.benefits to people if they don't have citizenship documents irrespective of religion? Specifically should a Hindu who has no documents also be put in detention camp or be disenfranchised?

@CTwinkley On #CAA_NRCProtests

India is a democratic country & dissent is a part of democracy. However, country has been witnessing dissenters being termed as "anti- nationals"; be it celebritries, students or the common public.
Every citizen of a democratic country has the right to dissent provided it is under constitutional action.

There have been widespread protests against #CAA_NRC across the country. So far 533 protests have been held in the country since the CAA was enacted on 12th Dec,2019.
With a total of 52 Protests, Maharashtra has reportedly held the the maximum protests against the CAA NRC, followed by West Bengal with 51, Karnataka with 47, Bihar and UP with 45 protests.

Dear @ECISVEEP, this advert is dangerous and targets people against BJP as 'traitors'. Calls for people to be violent and attack anyone who opposes BJP. How long will you keep silent ECI?
Look closely and you see hear people are identified in this video:
Drohi: #ShaheenBagh ladies, Umar Khalid, Chandrashekhar Azad, Anurag Kashyap, Students protesting against #CAA_NRC
Firangi: Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi
Dhongi: Kejriwal+Sisodia
Taadad Badh Gayi + Migrants: Muslims
See how crafty @BJP4India is in targeting the Muslims

#SadarPranam @PrashantKishor ji. Why shouldn’t #CAA_NRC be applied in Bihar? As per the Constitution of India no state can go against it. I explain it wrt Constitution in this thread, as you seem to have never read it.

Read thread & respond should u have enuf substance.
2/n India is a “union of states”, “not a federation of states” which is headed by the @rashtrapatibhvn . The PM & the Council of Ministers are appointed by the President to run the Republic of India. The Governor is head of states being the nominee of the President.
3/n The @rashtrapatibhvn acts on the advice of the @PMOIndia as per article 74 of the Constitution. Interestingly Indira Gandhi through 42nd amendment made it mandatory for the president to accept advice of PM & council of ministers.

Aamir Khan feels unsafe to live in India, Farhan Akhtar protests #CAA_NRC without knowing the facts & Deepika Padukone shows up at JNU to support Aishe Ghosh. It can’t be a coincidence and it’s not. They are all managed by a Mumbai based company - Spice PR 👇#DeepikaPRBackfires
This is how the PR machinery works. They have creatives, content, strategy all figured out much before the actual event. Right after Deepika left from JNU, the following creatives started floating on SM platforms like Twitter, FB, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. #DeepikaPRBackfires
Soon within 24 hours #ISupportDeepika was trending at No. 1 in India with 236K tweets and No. 3 in Worldwide trends with 234k tweets. But how did they get so many tweets in 24 hours when #BoycottChhaapaak was trending at No. 2 with just 177K Tweets? Weird no? #DeepikaPRBackfires

THREAD

I encountered some genuine concerns about #CAA_NRC_NPR in many people's minds.

In a way misinformation spreads fast and in very lethal way, but I am certain that Government could not clarify the whole exercise in crystal clear manner, with unanimity and solidarity.
As I am reading, researching, watching from quite a while now, Explaining the actual scenario verbally or personally to a mass of people is not possible to me at this point, so taking this SM route to spread awareness.

I will link some govt sources here to avoid over explaining
Lets have step by step knowledge about these things. Lets start with #NPR as it is smaller and very straightforward thing!

Pure misinformation led #NPR getting connected with #CAA_NRC. It should be looked as a joint exercise with Census.

Do you know there is a tribe in Pakistan that lives in the mountains of Hindu-Kush and practise an ancient form of Hinduism called "Kalash"

The Kalash kafirs (kafiristan) are facing an existential crisis and are being forced to convert to Islam
@vivekagnihotri @Aabhas24
1/6
These people living in 3 remote mountainous valleys in Pakistan, are the last remnants of the ‘Kafirs’ of the Hindu Kush

In 1896 they are more than 100,000

Today they are around 4,000, which indicates a drastic decline in the population of those Kalasha people #ISupportCAA
2/6
Hindus in Afghanistan converted to Buddhist during the time of Ashoka & Kanishka

During Arabic invasion, these Buddhists could not save themselves even for 25yrs

Buddhists who changed religion due to fear of sword called these Kalash people Kafir & their territory as Kafiristan

.@amjedmbt condemns @hydcitypolice act of booking 25 cases against TS&AP JAC leaders for organising #MillionMarchHyderabad, against #CAA_NRC, Appeals CM KCR & @KTRTRS to take note of this dirtiest act of @CPHydCity or face consequences in upcoming Elections./1 @TelanganaDGP
One thing is common in all cases that the Convenor JAC Mohammed Mustaq Mallik has been shown accused in all the cases and along with him others has been mentioned. All the FIR's are a copy/paste of one other. The word others will be never ending story. /2
#MillionMarchHyderabad was first of its kind since independence, There was no traffic jam, No untoward incident, No anti religious slogans, No stone pelting and moreover the organizers cleaned the entire roads upto late night after the Million March. /3

1/n #SadarPranam @VishalBhardwaj ji. There has been lots of fuss about #Faiz & his poem but it’s unfortunate that most of the people have deviated from hard facts in order to take sides.

I request you to read thread below where I explain the concern.
2/n In fact the great Historian @irfhabib tries to school people about #Faiz but misses the root point.

What is really important right now is to speak a bit about a very important poem “Vande Mātaram” with its reception.

देश भर में कंपकपाती ठण्ड पर
विभिन्न दलों की राय इस प्रकार हो सकती हैं।

भाजपा :-
ये कंपकपाती ठण्ड सबका साथ, सबका विश्वास का अद्भुत उदाहरण हैं। ये ठण्ड बिना किसी जाति, धर्म के भेदभाव किए बिना सभी पर समान रूप से पड़ रही हैं।

हम इस सद्भावनापूर्ण ठण्ड का स्वागत करते हैं।
कॉंग्रेस :-
ऐसा नही हैं कि, ये ठण्ड हमारी सरकार में नही पड़ती थी, पड़ती थी किन्तु ऐसी भेदभावपूर्ण, विद्वेषपूर्ण ठण्ड आज से पहले कभी नही पड़ी।

हम पूछना चाहते हैं इस सरकार से अल्पसंख्यक इलाकों में ही ज्यादा ठण्ड क्यों पड़ रही हैं?

हम संसद में कंपकपाती ठण्ड पर बहस चाहते हैं
केजरीवाल :-
हम पूछना चाहते हैं, मोदी जी से
आखिर दिल्ली चुनाव के ऐनवक्त पहले ही इतनी ठण्ड क्यों पड़ रही हैं ?

5 साल इतनी ठण्ड क्यों नही पड़ी ?

मोदी सरकार अधिक ठण्ड पड़वाकर वोटरों को डराना चाह रही हैं। हम विधानसभा का विशेष सत्र बुलवाकर इस षड्यंत्र का खुलासा करेंगे।

A brief analysis of @SadhguruJV's video on #CAA_NRC
In the beginning, he says "I even wondered have I missed something really? Bcz I havent read the Act fully, I only know it from newspapers & what's generally out there."
#IndiaSupportsCAA #IndiaDoesNotSupportCAA
He then states some facts: He says that after the partition of India "23% (of minorities) stayed back in West Pakistan and arnd 30% in East Pakistan (Bangladesh). Thats what people say...I am no expert but it can't be totally wrong." It is totally wrong (indiatoday.in/india/story/pa…)
Next up he says: In these countries there is discrimination against minority by law. He gives an example of how Hindus are not allowed to get married in Pakistan by following their own religion. Pakistan passed a law in 2017 to enable this. Read: bbc.com/news/world-asi…

Factual thread with

Documented, verifiable facts:

#IStandWithArchanaSingh
#CAA_NRC

7 July 1947: Gandhiji calls for all Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan to be allowed to come to India whenever they wish, if they feel persecuted in Pakistan
9 Nov 1947: Congress Working Committee adopts a resolution for the same, stating specifically that India will accept "all non-Muslims" from Pakistan at any time.

Nehruji and Rajendra Prasad Prasad make speeches about this multiple times.
2 April 1950: Nehru signs an agreement with Pakistan's Liaquat Ali Khan: Refugees allowed to return to sell their property, abducted women and looted property to be returned, forced conversions to be reversed, minorities granted state protection.

Important to note: What I saw outside #UPBhawan today was dramatic, but it was nothing compared to the kinds of police brutality happening in Uttar Pradesh right now, or what happened at #JamiaMilliaIslamia and #AligarhMuslimUniversity University on Dec 15. (1/7)
I wrote about all of that for the @latimes yesterday. What I saw today was “just” aggressive handling of protestors - not, as has been the case the crackdowns I’ve written about, the use of batons, teargas, guns, and in reportedly even stun grenades. (2/7) latimes.com/world-nation/s…
This is Rohool Banka (@rohool_banka) after the crackdown at #JamiaMilliaIslamia on Dec 15. A 25-year-old Kashmiri Muslim, he told me that when police stormed the library he was studying in, he tried to pretend he was Hindu. That’s the only way he thought he’d survive. (3/7)

What a shame for modern India. Still these fasadis r roaming freely & given spl treatment.

My heart sinks at reading the atrocities done on Hindus by these hypocr!tes, k!llers & fasadis of India.

Musl!ms' ideology is to k!ll Hindus thn why do Hindus stay blind to this fact?
What has changed since Hindus Massacre on 12th October 1946 ?

Sadly Nothing !

Year 2002 Godhra ! And many more..

List of riots 👇
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_r…

Most of those who are opposing #CAA_NRC are Hindus !

Still hindus are blind to the ideology of k!llers cult culture !
Bhagat, Rajguru, Chandrashekhar, Savarkar, Bose & many more patriots who happily sacrificed their lives & their families for the sake of Bharat Mata.

They never thought if they had "Gandy" like crowd following or not. They just did what was right.

GoI says illegal immigrants will be thrown out but here they are assuring Bangladesh that it won't affect them.
So where will the people go?
They'll either be made second class citizens (no voting, property rights etc.) or put in detention camps forever.
The law will not be extended to Rohingya Muslims persecuted in Myanmar; Shia and Ahmadiyya Muslims in Pakistan; Hazaras, Tajiks and Uzbeks in Afghanistan; Tamils in Sri Lanka; and atheists in Bangladesh.

So how is it for persecuted minority & secular?
thewire.in/rights/india-c…
So when lakhs, maybe even crores of people inevitably fail to provide their documents, they will be forced to declare themselves as non-Muslim illegal immigrants who have come to India.
That would create a ruckus...

Read carefully, why #CAA_NRC are the last chance for India's existence

#Thread on story of Lebanon:

In 70s Lebanon was called 'Arab's paradise'. And its capital Beirut was 'Paris of Arabia'

Lebanon was a progressive, tolerant and multi-cultural society, just like India is
1/5
Lebanon had the best Universities in the world. Where children from all over Arabia used to come to study. And then they used to stay there & work

Lebanese banking was one of the best banking systems in the world. Despite not having oil, Lebanon was a great economy
2/5
Lebanese society can be gauged from this, that 60s Hindi film "An Evening in Paris" was also shot in Lebanon

When there was unrest in Jordan in 70s, Lebanon opened the doors to "Palestinian refugees", by 1980, Lebanon was in exactly same condition as Syria today

Yes. These protests also puncture the BJP's claim, built upon mass media, whatsapp forwards and 'first past the post' election wins, that the national mood backs it. 1/n
This posturing has served the party well till now. It has projected power well – and institutions and individuals have buckled. Even SC judgements have hewed towards what they considered the new majoritarian consensus. 2/n
Now, as protests fill roads in big and small towns; with people of all faiths who gather despite 144; with lawyers who chant shame in a delhi courtroom; with people who step out to listen to bureaucrats who heeded their conscience, that claim seems just like a... claim. 3/n
