Revelation that #Muslims from #TablighiJamaat r wilful #superspreaders of #COVID19 in parts of India, highlights a bigger issue that secular, democratic (and diverse) societies like India face.
It should serve as a lesson for US & other democracies.
My take on this thread below-
Most democratic societies around the world (including US) used to turn a blind eye towards the activities by #TablighiJamat, because they thought (& some still think) that the "non-political nature of Tablighis" make them less likely to indulge in anti-state terror activities.
But the true pan-Islamic nature of #TablighiJamaat makes them one of the most efficient half-way-house for terror groups like #AlQaeda,#ISIS, et al, that actually indulge in anti-state activities.

A yr ago today, I watched in real-time an attack unfold before my eyes. On a Jummah in March last yr, a white supremacist attacked two #mosques in #Christchurch killing 51 Muslim worshippers as they prayed. Pls take a moment to pray for the victims & their families today.
Scars of the #Christchurch massacre linger. Slowly the shock recedes until all we feel is the echo of the tragedy. One yr on after Haji Daoud Nabi of Al Noor #mosque in #Christchurch uttered the words “Welcome, brother” only to b met w/ bullets in response theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
Aya Al-Umari's brother was one of the victims of the #Christchurch #mosque attack. “Every day I feel like Hussein is with me. Any decisions that I make, I just think about, OK, what would Hussein do in this situation?" she said.

The main issue that some #Muslims are afraid of is #NPR. 🧵

1. The actual population of Muslims & Christians is much more than estimated by the last census carried out in 2011. And aligning NPR with the next one slated for 2021 is something that they desperately want to avoid.
2. Lot of Minority benefits that they get is not provided for in the Constitution and those are likely to stop once NPR nos. are frozen and PIL's filed in SC. The days of surreptious give aways to buy their muscle power would be gone.

@vivekagnihotri
3. NPR would mean the establishment of a family tag which will clearly define BPL thereby enabling the govt to stop MNREGA type doles causing loss of payout of thousands to the Muslims. How?

Reports are emerging of widespread anti-#Muslim violence in Delhi, India. Mosques have been set aflame, Muslim neighborhoods attacked, and Muslim cemeteries desecrated by Hindu-nationalist mobs.

Following is a thread of news and analysis as it breaks.

#DelhiRiots2020
When @thewire_in interviewed a pro-government #Hindutva group about the violence, they replied:

"How dare they protest like this in our country? Is it (their) country? It is our country. We will show them their place."

Are #Hindu/#Muslim riots inevitable in #India?
-Of course not. (So much academic literature-- see @ProfVarshney among many others).

One key variable is government response. Take two conflagrations in #Gujarat in 2002:
<1/3>
2/3
-Feb 2002: 58 #Hindus killed in #Godhra. ~1,000+ #Muslims killed while police (under #Modi) stand by.
-Sept 2002: Terrorists kill 30 at #Akshardam temple. Could have led to mass riots, but #India's PM Vajpayee sent CRPF in quickly to control the situation. No riots.
3/3
In both 2002 #Gujarat cases, the initial provocation was extreme (in #Godhra, still disputed whether fire was intentional or accident: Separate question).
-Govt can't stop killing of 30 people, or even 58. But it CAN stop the killing of 1,000.

If it doesn't, it's complicit.

Please bear with me .

Since 1947 when the country took shape and was freed by the muslims and hindus who fought against the brits (no, not the sanghis, they licked the boots of the brits), we have been asked to prove out patriotism on daily basis for #BeingMuslim

2/n
Many chose to stay behind and made this country their home , many were butchered while trying to flee fearing that they will be targeted after a few decades in the HindutwaRashtra later.
Those who stayed back faced Nellie, Bhagalpur, Babri and many more for #BeingMuslim

CAA debunked in 10 tweets by @AyeshaHadi

Govt claims that CAA shouldn't be combined with NRC & there is nothing wrong in CAA by itself.

Let's see some basic reasons why CAA is dangerous even without NRC.

#IndianMuslim

#IndiasMuslims
#IndianMuslims
#MuslimsofIndia
1. It directly violates article 14 & has no legitimate State aim or reasonable classification thereby rendering the amendment unconstitutional and void ab initio.

#IndianMuslim

#IndiasMuslims

#MuslimsofIndia
2. It excludes Muslims from Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan solely on the basis of religion which violates constitutional values like secularism.

It makes no provisions for persecuted atheists or those not from majoritarian religions.

Muslims of India!

What do they think about BJP, Cong & other Pol. parties?

What is their future?

Who creates a perception of hatred for them?

Why Muslims are still not with BJP?

Here's a 10 min. talk from a learned Muslim gentleman, a Haaji, presented in 4 parts👇
#Muslims
The biggest change in political thinking among Muslims is their rejecting Congress party. However the seeds of hatred sowed in them are not letting them come closer to BJP.

Greatest villains projected to them were Vajpayee, Advani & now Modi & Yogi. BJP tumko kha jayegi Contd..
डर का महौल..

An atmosphere of fear is created by the ungrateful like Amir khan, Naseeruddin Shah & Javed Akhtar driving an agenda, who became big names because Hindus watched their movies.

45 days of Haj started looking very long to a Haji coz his real Jannat was India, home!

Here's the thing about the #CAA. Govt Ministers say repeatedly that it's objective is to help Hindus and other faith migrants who had to flee majoritarian relig. persecution. If that was the sole objective then how would it NOT have been met with Sec 2 amended as below? How?
If the Govt cannot argue that my proposed amendment would NOT HAVE helped Hindu etc persecuted migrants then they will have to accept that the sole purpose of EXCLUDING muslims in #CAA was to discriminate against them. That's as maybe.. but there's worse to follow...
If you consider #NPR and #NRC, it is clear that with the #CAA implemented, the only Paperless and Document-light people who can be suspected of being economic migrants from #Pak and #Bangla and therefore packed off to a detention camp will be #Muslims. Most of them will be Indian

Countering Islamophobia

A hard hitting perspective by @SwalihaAsiya

Fellow Indians, it is time to address the elephant in the room. You know what I am talking about.

Though this may make you uncomfortable, I assure you that having this conversation is the need of this hour.
Why is Mangalore/India becoming increasingly Islamophobic? Why are there media sites on FB openly using communal slurs on Muslims? Why are Muslims called terrorists?

Why is large portion of India's internet community making allegations without evidence to malign #IndianMuslim?
Because the facts remain unchanged

1. Law enforcement does discriminate & it did, during the #AntiCAAProtests that happened in December

2. Attack on Masjids, in Delhi and Mangalore happened without any provocation or condemnation.

3. Media channels acted as RW propaganda tools

A thread by @SwalihaAsiya on negative stereotyping of Muslim characters by Indian or International shows.

The entertainment industry owes the #Muslims of the world more than an apology.

#MediaBias
#DispellingMythsOnIslam
#NoToIslamophobia
The 'Muslim' shown on TV is never a realistic reflection of the actual Muslim.
He/She is either painted in black or white, with either the character honing negative ISIS-kinda extremism or a completely watered down version of a Hollywood Muslim, who parties and drinks etc.
Where are the real caricatures of a Muslim being showcased on TV?

It's either the Taliban or al-Qaida oriented terrorism spreading, suicide bombing version all over International TV or the Hollywood Muslim who has discarded the Muslim identity as if it were a cancerous malady.

This Tweet #Trending is dedicated for #Arabs who have been deceived for centuries about their #Quran & the status of Jesus Christ due to radical imams teachings within mosques. Do know the one who took care of Muhammad was a Christian Monk named Bahira! Like, share, & Retweet !!
The Nature of Jesus Christ in the #Quran : The only one with a pure spirit i.e., Holy Spirit was Jesus Christ, because he is the lord God/Allah. quran.com/2/87 & if you can't understand, listen to the teachings of apostle Mark the Evangelist
Does that mean #Arabs or #Muslims do not know God? They do but they haven't fully discovered his nature. Same goes for many #Jews & so in order for God's words to become true, the miracle of Mokattam Mountain was moved before the Caliphate and the Jews ✝️

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

A short #Thread to dispel doubts on #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019
Q) Does the Bill disallow citizenship for #Muslim migrants ?
A) NO , The bill merely mandates any #Muslim migrant to spend 11 yrs resident in #India before applying for citizenship.
Q) Does #CitizenAmendmentBill discriminate against #Muslims who are citizens of #India or remove any privilege of citizenship they hold?
A) No, the #CABBill makes no comment on the citizenship of existing #Muslim citizens.
Q) Why does the bill disallow #Muslim migrants from #Pakistan #Afghanistan & #Bangladesh from it's ambit.
A) The Bill is meant to provide a safety valve for minorities in adjoining nations who do not wish to live under a #Islamic regime. #Muslims are a majority in these nations.

Perhaps the best example of #AmalgamationArchitecture and the cultural inclusiveness of #Hyderabad under the Nizam is #OsmaniaUniversity Arts College founded in 1918. It's the 1st Indian university to have Urdu (a modern language) as medium of instruction (as opposed to Persian).
Under the last Nizam, Osman Ali Pasha, #Hyderabad was thriving as a center of learning, innovation and technological advancement, free from the dark shadow of colonialism that gripped most of the Subcontinent. Hyderabad was quite insulated from India...
...and developed its own culture, architectural styles, cuisine, and most importantly, language. People from India were referred to as Hindustani and so was their language. The language of Hyderabad was Dakhani (of Deccan), which is very distinct from Hindi or Urdu...

[Thread] Throughout my research on #Islamophobia, one of the most common tactics by anti-Muslim figures is to smear politically active Muslims/Muslim orgs, who are critical of govt policy, as "#Islamist."
As, @andreas_krieg states, the word is vague, & remains a contested catch-all concept, describing ideology, political movements, & forms of government that borrow Islamic references but are essentially presented as separate from Islam. lobelog.com/laying-the-isl…
@andreas_krieg In the Middle East, Arab autocrats use the label to dispel any social movement calling for #democracy. foreignpolicy.com/2018/12/11/sau…

ETHNIC CLEANSING & CULTURAL GENOCIDE IN #KASHMIR

Since the coming of #Islam to #Kashmir, since 1389 there have been 7 recorded exoduses of Kashmiri #Hindus and #Sikhs due to genocide and persecution at the hands of radical Islam.
2/n
The first exodus OF #Hindus from #Kashmir (AD 1389-1413) was under the Shah Mir Dynasty. Tourists may not notice that the iconic Dal Lake has a mass grave of Kashmiri Hindus known as "Bhatt Mazar" or "grave of Brahmins".
3/n
The second mass exodus (1506-1585) of Kashmiri #Hindus and #Buddhists was under Ali Shah Chak Dynasty, which made the persecution of Kashmiri Hindus a royal policy.

They boasted that they killed 900 Hindus daily for refusing to convert to Islam.
