The day a two bit actress without having read the two & a quarter page CAA Amendment Bill 2019 became the face of the #CAAProtest the cause was lost.

The night a two bit actor present at a farmers protest rally, expounded on geo-politics, South Asia & confiscated land (?)
the infiltration confirmed, the agenda exposed.

In both ‘protests’, the big powerful vultures hover, circling at distance, ready to tear skin, peck at innards, dismember the carcass & finally enjoy that hearty meal.

But it looks, alas it is not to be.
Not yet. Not today.

Over the years Jaya Bachchan has shown a special talent for getting the wrong of the argument.

She didn’t complain when several members of the film fraternity stood shoulder to shoulder w/people who called for violence #CAAProtest against the State but now gets all hurt
& sensitive when some actors voice their experience & opinion on their place of work.

Moreover, she exposes an inability to distinguish between agencies investigating a suspicious death of an actor vs an investigation against the industry itself.

Truly D-uh.

But the likes of @ReallySwara @taapsee @anuragkashyap72 won't dare to name the powerful people of their Fraternity
And this very gang is perpetually on twitter spreading propaganda agn PM MODI calling him fascist , spreading venom against the HINDUS & the country.
The very same people use othrs tragedies to further their agenda.
In Asifa case they were holding placards deriding all HINDUS ImageImage
During #CAAProtest @ReallySwara led the charge that India was targeting its minorities for their identity.
These very people misled d Muslims & fear in their minds regarding CAA which consequently resulted in #DelhiRiots claiming over 50 lives n the economic costs ran in crores

India is bidding for non permanent member for UNSC seat on June 17th during the 74th session at @UNGA. India does not deserve UNSC seat as it has illegally revoked article 370,35A, violated Article 19,27,32 ,49 of 4th Geneva Convention and various @UNSCN resolution
India should be held accountable for its grave breaches of intl humanitarian law and warcrimes in Kashmir & to take steps to settle the decades old dispute. Keep tweeting abt Indian atrocities & tag international media outlets & activists. Raise your voices at international level

Anti-#CAA protesters' hoarding case in the #SupremeCourt: SG Tushar Mehta appears for UP Govt as he points out 57 indicted for destruction of public properties include rioters of both communities.

Mehta says Allahabad High Court order is based on alleged violation of right to privacy but privacy will have a different dimension when a person chooses to commit certain acts in public.

Judges ask:

* Question is whether state has a right to put posters of those involved in public places

* Can right to privacy be waived for all times to come even if they have been involved in certain acts of rioting

Linking of #Aadhaar - #NPR began in Telangana in 2015 and the work continued till late 2017.

The #Telangana government spent crores for both NPR updating and seeding of Aadhaar with NPR database.

Why #CAA_NRC_NPR is much needed?

India is a sovereign country. Every country maintains a right to control its borders & the government decides who comes enters, who stays for how long & which documents are necessary for the alien visitors to provide.
Our country has had a long history of continuous invasion & barbaric subjugation of the natives through forced conversions, beheadings, rapes, kidnapping, destruction of our places of worship, etc. #CAA_NRC_NPR
To a great extent such behaviour has been reduced, but it unfortunately rears it ugly head whenever Muslim population rises above 25% of the total population. For example, Lebanon. #CAA_NRC_NPR

Shaheen Bagh: Supreme Court begins hearing on the petitions seeking clearance of the Kalindi Kunj road which has remained blocked for over 60 days on account of the anti-CAA protest at Delhi's Shaheen Bagh.

Justice Kaul says certain section of the society is opposed to a legislation, that legislation is being tested in the Court; not saying people don't have the right ti protest but the question is where to protest

Justice Kaul says today it's one legislation people have grievance with, tomorrow it may be another but the question is not about that, the question is if public area can be used for protests.

‘Guns are being brandished in the national capital, Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal are supporting it.’
For a good half and hour or more @republic TV and their reporter @aishkapoor passed off the shooter as the ‘real face of anti-CAA’ protests.
“How much violence do we have to watch and how much inconvenience do people need to keep facing.”
@republic TV anchor portraying the shooter as an anti-CAA protester seeking attention.
"Jamia protestor uses gun"
@republic ran this for at least half an hour. Didn't see any correction or apology. Image

Thread: The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (#NCPCR)'s concern that children at the anti-#CAAprotest in Delhi "may suffer from mental trauma" not just reflects its hypocrisy but also how politically compromised Indian institutions are. (1/n)
While it finds children's demand for a fair India, in the company of their parents, a source of worry, it conveniently promotes trafficking of children by #RSS for ideological indoctrination. (2/n)
In June 2015, the Assam Commission for Protection of Child Rights wrote to the NCPCR (letter attached below) how 31 tribal girls from five districts of Assam have been trafficked by 3 RSS affiliated organizations in violation of several laws and taken to Punjab & Gujarat. (3/n)

When i scan a wide spectrum of opinions, news, random tweets on their own experiences by people who you would not even know in the normal course of events what is very clear is that an entire eco system that ruled India directly or indirectly for 7 decades which insists on status
quo has sensed blood literally & thirsty to taste it. They are convinced that it is just a matter of time before they taste blood. Every last penny is now being thrown for this #CAAProtest & the biggest error of judgement this govt has done is by talking of #NRC. They have thus
given a handle to everybody who was down & out to suddenly get oxygen loaded with testosterone. A complex subject which even the most educated haven't been able to wrap their head around has opened a huge door of opportunity to the old ecosystem. Early in the new govt they sense

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

Dear Dr. @ShashiTharoor:

La ilaha illallah ❤️

And I’ll say it EVERY TIME someone tells Muslims not to assert their identity.

Pls don’t airbrush Muslims out of a protest against an Act which seeks to directly target & disenfranchise them.

Pls don’t ask Muslims to “not assert their identity” when the State machinery is controlled & run by those who promote the ideology & agenda of Hindutva.
PS: The above tweet is meant for EVERYONE trying hard to appropriate this protest & become a “leader”.

Nope you can’t - don’t make this about you. Either stand with Indian Muslims unconditionally or find your own cause to become a “leader” for.

There’s many.

@Aabhas24 @ShashiTharoor @anubhavsinha 1/n

Savarkar once said " If you are a Muslim or a Christian then I am a Hindu. Otherwise, I was just a human being"

Word contains no meaning in itself. We fill the meaning in the word. If we use it in a right way, it sense right among common people and vice versa.
@Aabhas24 @ShashiTharoor @anubhavsinha 2/n

And the Congressi-leftist-Jihadi congregation has been master in the art of filling a wrong meaning in a word since before the independence.

Now they give Hindutva a wrong image and try to establish an inferior version of our Sanatan Dharma in the mind set of common people.
@Aabhas24 @ShashiTharoor @anubhavsinha 3/n

Though, we have no problem in saying it Hindutva or Hinduism.

But @Aabhas24 rightly said that by addressing Sanatan Dharma as Hinduism, they just try to feel us that our thinking is inferior to them.

That's why that had never used the word Islamism or Christianism.

"Did u know 'atheist' Faiz did Nikah w/ British lady after converting her to Islam?

Faiz was a revolutionary?
Hum Dekhenge is against Islamic oppression?
Context of Hum Dekhenge?
You don't know Faiz?"

Reality of Faiz and his fans by Dr Vashi Sharma…
There have been many terror attacks on our universities before with similar "anti-idolatry pro-Allah" slogans. Check history and destruction of pre-Islamic universities – Nalanda, Vikramasila, Odantapuri, Somapura, Jagaddala, Vallabhi.…
"Faiz not only praised Jinnah for ‘liberating Muslim nation’ but also thanked “Indian Muslims who created Pakistan but didn’t move there”! CAA protesters & Faizians in India want all to believe that Indian Muslims rejected Pakistan in 1947. Who is lying?…

This is for my friends outside India - thanks for your privately expressed concern, which is appreciated. Vastly more appreciated would be if you could take a minute to express it publicly. Mainstream media in many countries has been largely silent on the issue. (1/n)
At a dinner in Melbourne with a group of very well informed people, I found that most had simply not heard of what was happening, or if they were faintly aware, had no clue about the extent to which the State was clamping down on dissent in as violent a manner as possible. (2/n)
All you have to do is share an account or two of what’s happening in India - whether it’s a writeup on the law or coverage of the protests which have to a large extent been peaceful save for notable exceptions in BJP-ruled states. (3/n)
