#LutyensCrisis lol! Now that the #Mandate2019 has been won. I cannot help but recall the ire that the average "bhakt" has faced both online and offline. One of my uncles told me to keep a low profile after I wrote this article, last year :…
His rationale was that I would face backlash from people who were loath to relinquish power. A month later the husband invited the wrath of the entire left cabal, just coz he had few followers and he had the temerity to exercise his #FOE against #UrbanNaxals
For a tweet in response to the now viral #UrbanNaxals tweet by @vivekagnihotri atleast 3 leftist SC lawyers and their team started sending threats online. They smoked out my husband's employers and sent multiple complaints to the company.

On the day when #ShyamaPrasadMukharjee was arrested in #Kashmir and died in custody protesting different constitution for Kashmir, let’s remember an aspect, as much in fashion as it is forgotten. On this day when #PriyankaSharma is in Jail for meme of @MamataOfficial . #FoE
Why #Nehru became so uneasy with #Freedom which was just won in one year that he wanted to amend the constitution? Mostly because of few articles in the press, critical of government which he tried to ban, but couldn’t due to fundamental rights. But that was one reason.
One big reason was #NehruLiyaqat pact. Many nationalists, including Dr Mukharjee considered partition temporary aberration and believed that nation will eventually become one. Nehru didn’t like that and a speech which could cause “excitement in neighbouring nation” was included

Yesterday, The Supreme Court of India issued notice to the Centre for the continued use of Section 66A of the IT Act, 2000, despite the provision being struck down as unconstitutional by the court in its landmark judgment - Shreya Singhal v. Union of India (2015). #FoE
The erstwhile Section 66A of the IT Act, provided for punishment for sending offensive messages through communication services. The Supreme Court struck it down in its entirety calling it violative of Article 19(1)(a) and not saved by Article 19(2) of the constitution of India.
Due to the seriousness of the submissions, the bench comprising of Justice Rohinton Nariman and Justice Vineet Saran asserted that the concerned officials will be arrested if its order scrapping the provision has been violated. For more details visit -…

Uma Chakravarti is being quoted by the 'Brahminical Patriarchy' gang to endow their highfalutin bunk with academic legitimacy. The creative rider that critiquing 'BP' is not anti-Brahman tirade is just that: a disclaimer to disown what is cleverly constructed hate speech. 1/n
Why is Uma Chakravarti being cited? Simple. The 'BP' gang knows that few will bother to check. Reading is not an Indian strength. So you get away with hocus pocus, abracadabra stuff like BP is about "the intersectionality of feminism and the critique of upper caste hegemony". 2/n
In April 1993 EPW published Uma Chakravarti's paper 'Conceptualising Brahmanical Patriarchy in Early India -- Gender, Caste, Class and State'. It was about Brahmans, it was about locating social structures in early India within the larger global framework of 'patriarchy'. 3/n

1/ Just watched UN Special Rapporteur @davidakaye present his report on AI and freedom of expression via #UNGA live stream and I’m here to report that in addition to incredible substance it was a real geopolitical thriller. Thread:
@davidakaye 2/ First, the Russian delegate held no punches in reversing the narrative to attack western media as the culprit of disinformation.
@davidakaye 3/ According to Russia, the material we label as “fake news” is actually the “better information” (the interpreter’s words, but telling) that we attempt to hide. Here, you can see the direct alignment between the Russian agenda to destabilize democracy and Trump's media playbook.

@amishra77 @virsanghvi This was the strategy of the outliers for a long time:
1) Moghuls became Indians and Indians became Kafirs
2) Nehru-Khan-Maino became Gandhi and Indians became fools
3)Muslims became Kashmiris and #KashmiriPandits became refugees

@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 4) Bangladeshis became #Bengalis and Bengalis couldn't celebrate #DurgaPuja in soon to be #WestBangladesh
5) Those who are intolerant of #Hindus became #Secular and the real seculars became #Sanghi terrorists
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 6) The #Maoists and #UrbanNaxals became Intellectuals and the Intellectuals became #Bakhts
7) Terrorists became 'poor-sons-of-headmasters' who killed/beheaded army men and the army became human rights violators who used pellet guns on these peaceful terrorists. @adgpi
