Today marks the 84th death anniversary of Dr. Mukhtar Ahmad Ansari.
Dr. Ansari was born on 25th December 1880, at his ancestral home in Yusufpur-Mohammadabad in the Ghazipur district of what was then known as the United Provinces, (UP).

Dr. Ansari was a descendant - in a direct line - of Khwaja Abdullah Ansari of Herat through Khwaja Abdurreman. The family migrated to India in two batches; first in the reign of Mohammad bin Tughlaq and subsequently with Babur’s army in 1526.

Dr. Ansari was educated in Hyderabad, where his brothers were in the service of the Nizam of Hyderabad, and then received a degree in medicine from the Madras Medical College.
He moved to Edinburgh for higher studies and received a Master of Surgery from @EdinburghUni, in 1910.

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)…
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)

Long thread on Jamia protests: So why is Jamia protesting? I will not attempt a political commentary that mainstream media is already immersed into. A critical question is - why do students spend so much energy to protest on #CABBill2019 that doesnot not impact them in any way?
My last article on #JNUProtests tried to connect dots on the overall lack of accountability of students to their careers,a general mis-direction of energy,absence of realism on current economic issues & the low fee structure that creates absence of urgency for anything productive
Jamia protests provoked me to explore the same for the university, with almost similar results. Probably worse. Let’s see the facts & you can decide.
Basics first. Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) has about 18500 students in college level courses. #JamiaMilliaIslamia

On behalf of the #JamiaMilliaIslamia student community

The students of Jamia disassociate themselves from the violence that has erupted today. We have time and again maintained that our protests are peaceful and non-violent. (1/3)
We stand by this approach and condemn any party involved in the violence. We have maintained calm even when students have been lathi-charged and some women protestors have been badly beaten up. (2/3)
Media personal are a witness to these events. Violence by certain elements is an attempt to vilify and discredit genuine protests. We appeal to everyone to share this message. (3/3)

First hand accounts: Jamia students still stuck in history dept, canteen, law faculty and library. Students cannot get out because tear gas is still being fired. Students want urgent help @ArvindKejriwal #JamiaProtest
There is no electricity, no network inside. Students are not able to rescue other's. Guards were injured because they were helping students. "300 policemen came in, they knew where the students will be." "It looks like a warzone" the Jamia student said. #JamiaProtest
"women students were the target this time" he said. "Police is very well armed, we dont know what they have in mind. They are carrying some yellow liquid in bottles." #JamiaProtest #JamiaMilliaIslamia
