In #JNUProtests, this placard shows Mata Kaali as wearing the Hijab, ie The Supreme Divine Mother of Hindu pantheon, the fiercest of them all, is shown as having accepted Islam. If this is not bigotry and #Hinduphobia, I don’t know what is.
The entire nature of CAA/NRC protests have always been anti-Hindu and these images only prove what we already know. #Hinduphobia
Ma Kaali is the fiercest of all. Her hair flow with complete freedom. She has risen above her mortal body so she doesn’t wear anything except a skull-garland. She attacks our deepest demons & frees our soul.

Wrapping her in a “modest” garment attacks everything she stands for.

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

In light of current fee hike #JNUProtests , and twitter trends such as #ShutDownJNU , I thought of making a thread on how and why JNU became a bastion of anti establishment and radical leftist sentiments.
A disclaimer: Views expressed are based on sources mentioned in the end.
To understand the ideology of JNU we need to go back to its genesis. Established in 1969, the first lot of JNU faculty largely came from Presidency College Kolkata. They were Marxist in their writings with Communist Party ties. Hence from its inception JNU had a leftist bent.
However, being left leaning in itself is not a bad ideological stance as long as the leftism is centered around genuine issues like student farmer and labour unions.
Thus, keeping with true democratic pluralism of India the University flourished with state subsidies and grants.
