#1/3 Both #SharjeelImam and #ArfaKhanum are no ‘impoverished, illiterate Muzlims who were denied new clothes for Eid when they were three’. They are educated, upper class Muzlim elite. And yet, they both speak the same language, of establishing a Shariah state in India someday.
#2/3 There are others like them, people like Irfan Habib, Javed Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar, who pretend to be ‘liberal’ Muzalman, speak outwardly of the ‘constitution’ of ‘patriotism’ and syncretism. But when it comes to #CAA_NRC_NPR, all of them speak the same language - of Jihad.
#3/3 On the other hand, many Yindoos continue to be drunk on the brew of secularism, refusing to see the truth, parroting the propaganda that ‘only illiterate, poor Muzlims’ turn to ‘fundamentalism’ because they have ‘no choice’.

Few tweets on the bluff calling of South Asian Sufi-Mullah-Ashraf mafia by Modi-Shah through CAA legislation. Nobody dared to do it in the past starting with 1857.

I am quoting SR Goel in pieces.
"Sir Syed Ahmed Khan was the first leader to start sabre-rattling on behalf of his community. That was a year or two after the Congress came into existence. There is no evidence that any Hindu leader called his bluff at that time or at a subsequent stage.
On the other hand, there is ample evidence of how Hindu leaders tried to appease the bully.

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

People across Indian cities are protesting, students are standing up against universities and colleges, many in Bollywood have spoken up against #CAA_NRC_NPR, the nation is in turmoil. In such chaos and turmoil, why aren't the Modi-Shah duo repealing this? (1/n)
There are perhaps many explanations to this, but increasingly at the level where it matters: numerically and electorally, there is widespread support and if you put it to test, the results of that will be majorly in favour. Good or bad, depends on where you are (2/n)
On an average, I take at least 100 cab rides a month, club that with the conversations I have with others on ground. Have spoken to cabbies in #Delhi NCR and Mumbai. There are drivers today who cancel cabs if they see a passenger from the minority community. (3/n)

Short story of Mughals' elimination and the start of Indian occupation & exploitation by British :

1608 - 1st commander of East India Co (EIC) set foot on Indian soil in Surat.

1613 - EIC was permitted by Mughal Emperor Jahangir to set up a factory in Surat.

1613 to 1685 - The British (EIC) & the French spread across India for trade and business. They profited and strengthened themselves

1686 - 1st fight by EIC against Mughals, supported by British military. EIC lost. Their entire set up in India was seized & plundered.

1690- Begged pardon from Aurangzeb and graciously granted. A huge mistake.

1707- Aurangzeb died. Infighting and downslide of Mughals began. Small independent kingdoms in defiance of Mughals came up.

British & French kept watching & strengthening themselves.

#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.

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.

For those of you not alerted to what’s happening in India, every day the news gets progressively worse. The only heartening moments are to see how strongly so many Indians are standing together in protest, across any divide, to uphold the values of its secular constitution.
There are so many images of the protests and solidarity as Indians of every persuasion stand together to uphold the idea of India, and the ideals of India. This one, in front of the Jama Masjid in Delhi, singing the national anthem. #CAA_NRC_NPR

Many lawyers are protesting in various ways at the vandalism on display towards India’s constitution.

This thread is for Non-resident Indians in America that support the #CAA

Today I want to tell you the story of a man called Bhagat Singh Thind.

He was born in 1892 in colonial Punjab. In 1913 he went to the US for higher education and enlisted as a soldier for the US Army
in 1918 during the First World War. He may have been the first turbaned soldier in the US Army. His unit was called Washington Company No. 2, Development Battalion No. 1, 166th Depot Brigade.

At that time in the US, South Asians faced immense racism and discrimination.
This is Bhagat Singh Thind. Photo taken from

#CAA_NRC_NPR चे सर्व मसुदे आणि नियम आता सर्वाना तोंडपाठ झाले असतील,

पण,मी हिंदुस्थानचा एक नागरिक आहेच, हिंदुस्थानात राहणाऱ्या कोणत्याही गैरहिंदूना या ऍक्टचा त्रास होणारचं नाही,पण यावर राजकीय पोळी भाजली जात असुन,त्या चुलीवरचं जातीय/धार्मिक दंगल घडवून आणली जात आहे,

संपुर्ण धागा👇
पण एक हिंदुत्ववादी म्हणुन,या कायद्याची का गरज आहे,याबद्दल माझे विचार मी या धाग्यात मांडत आहे,यात कोणताही राजकीय मुद्दा मध्ये आणु नये, कारण हिंदुत्व हे कोणत्या राजकीय पक्षाचं नसून,ते #हिंदुत्व_हेच_राष्ट्रीयत्व या नियमानुसार संपुर्ण हिंदुस्थानचे आहे🚩

स्वातंत्र्यानंतर हिंदुस्थानच्या लोकसंख्येत चिंताजनक बदल घडत आहेत,हिंदूंची टक्केवारी कमी आणि मुस्लिम/ख्रिस्त्यांची वाढत आहे,हिंदु अल्पसंख्य झाल्याने बहुसंख्य धर्मांधांनी दहशती/फुटीर कारवाया केल्याचे आजपर्यंतचा इतिहास सांगतो,
त्यामुळे हे जर असेच चालू राहिले तर..
धोका खुप जवळ आहे 👍

Article 14 & CAA
In a recent TV debate on Puthiya Thalaimurai, BJP KT Ragavan & VCK Thirumavalavan locked horns on the Article 14- “Equality of Law”. Ragavan argued when everyone is equal in the law, why not bring Common Civil Code? For which Thirumavalavan gave a fitting reply.
Devious Ragavan had other ideas; I’ll come to it later. First let’s see abt Art14 & some of the observations made by Supreme Court on it.

Article 14
The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law or equal protection of laws within the territory of India.
The principle of equality of law means not the same law should apply to everyone, but that a law should deal alike all in one class; that there should be an equality of treatment under equal circumstances 👇

Last evening, over a conversation with brother SanjayHegde, we concluded, #ModiSarkar is simply not interested in talking to the anti #CAA_NRC_NPR protesters & would prefer to wear them down .
In the meanwhile, affiliates will go full steam ahead with disinformation campaigns.
Hence, it is important to be clear about what the #CAA_NRC_Protests are about.
The #CAA_NRCProtests aren't against granting citizenship to oppressed minorities of neighbouring countries.
Granting citizenship to those seeking refuge, is a welcome move.
Had #CAA2019 been religion neutral, there would have been no reason to oppose it.
But the intrusive nature of the planned #NPR & the stated plans of a nationwide #NRC with #CAA2019 in place as a enabling legislation, make the whole exercise suspect.

नागरिकता (संशोधन) अधिनियम 2019 की जरूरत ही नहीं पड़ती अगर देश का धार्मिक आधार पर बंटवारा न हुआ होता। कांग्रेस की नीतियों के कारण ही देश का धर्म के आधार पर बंटवारा हुआ। #IndiaSupportsCAA
1950 में हुए नेहरु-लियाकत समझौते के अनुसार दोनों देश अपने यहां रहने वाले अल्पसंख्यकों के हितों की रक्षा करेंगे और उन्हें अपने धर्म के सम्मान और रक्षा की पूरी छूट दी जाएगी। लेकिन पाकिस्तान में ये समझौता पूरी तरह फेल हो गया। #IndiaSupportsCAA
1947 में पाकिस्तान में जहां अल्पसंख्यकों की संख्या 23% थी वो 2011 में मात्र 3.7% रह गई। इसलिए पाकिस्तान, अफगानिस्तान और बांग्लादेश में धार्मिक रूप से प्रताड़ित हिंदू, सिख, बौद्ध, जैन, पारसी, ईसाई के हितों की रक्षा के लिए नागरिकता (संशोधन) अधिनियम 2019 लाया गया। #IndiaSupportsCAA

Thread #India #UttarPradesh In Muzaffarnagar, a woman told us how her home had been vandalised by the police in the dead of the night. Their car, windows, mirrors, electronic appliances, crockery all broken. Jeweller, cash stolen.
She says police told her and her family to leave, and that her home would soon become theirs. She says there were also some people in plain clothes with the police. She says #Muslim families are living in terror in #UttarPradesh
Photos from another home in the neighbourhood. They also told us police barged in at night and broke everything. We heard similar stories in every #Muslim locality we went to. #India #UttarPradesh Police have denied the allegations & told the BBC they've recd no such complaints
