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

Doing a thread on #NPR

To understand NPR, we need to understand wars & migration. The idea NPR came after the war with kargil in 1999. Where pakistanis entered India in civil clothes and we couldn't identify them. #IndiaAgainstCAA #IndiaAgainstNRC
So after the kargil war, there was conference of all chief ministers on internal security on 17-11-2001. This is where the idea of Multi Purpose National Identity Card was proposed and the idea of National Population Registrar was born to identify citizens from aliens.

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)

In #Mangaluru, stone-pelting mobs ignoring a temporary ban on public gatherings were repelled by police, a government official said.

A Reuters witness said police fired shots in the air in at least three areas and unleashed tear gas to scatter protesters.
In Lucknow, three protesters were hospitalised with gunshot wounds and one later died, an official at King George Medical University said.

Angry mobs in Lucknow set fire to dozens of motorcycles and cars, four media broadcast vans and three buses, police said.

1: The #CitizenshipAmmendmentAct is a bigoted law that legitimises discrimination on the basis of religion. The people of the country have the right to protest against this law peacefully and express their views.

2: However, rather than respecting, protecting and promoting this right, the Central government in #Delhi and various state governments are clamping down on protestors by using repressive laws.

3: Central and state governments across India must stop the crackdown on peaceful protestors who are protesting against the discriminatory Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA).

Dissent is our human right.
