Crucial Hearing in Supreme Court on Bengal Violence issue today:
Top Court will hear the appeal by @MamataOfficial Government against a Calcutta HC order which handed over serious crimes such as rape, crimes against women which occurred during #postpollviolence to CBI.
According to the West Bengal Government before Supreme Court, the CBI will be biased as it runs at behest of Centre & that the NHRC Committee report is "misleading".
Read West Bengal Government's take:…
Hearing Begins.
A bench led by Justice Saran in hearing the #BengalViolence case.

Kapil Sibal is for the West Bengal Government.

#Thread on visit to #Muzaffarnagar, UP with @harsh_mander @natashabadhwar @JohnDayal @Sandeep_Saurav_ & many others.
In short: @UPPolice, PAC, RAF are the "rioters" - दंगाई - here, targeting & trashing Muslim homes (see video). Will try & post videos/pics as Internet allows
RAF was also involved in this destruction of Muslim homes singled out for being prosperous. One left his blue cap behind. Police, PAC, RAF doing this said, "Muslims will be thrown out of India, don't damage the floor or walls, after all, all this will one day belong to us"
Look at these images. Not a single plate or cup or shelf has been left whole. Each & every thing has been broken, under pretext of a "flag march" by PAC, RAF, police. In this home, there was only a woman with 3 children at night when the forces stormed in & trashed it.

After the horrifying attack and death of the #Unnao rape victim, today, another rape victim was attacked with acid allegedly for not withdrawing her complaint in #Muzaffarnagar. (1/6) Image
These are not isolated attacks. They highlight the pathetic state of victim-protection in India, underlining the repeated failures of the Government to provide protection to rape victims and their families. (2/6)
Lack of witness protection has a deterring effect on women's access to justice. The intimidation affects their willingness to report a crime, participate in the investigation and testify in the court. (3/6)

🇮🇳 Cette focalisation sur les enjeux économiques et sociaux aux dépends des enjeux identitaires, si elle se confirme dans les mois à venir, pourrait créer des tensions au sein de la vaste famille des nationalistes hindous, le #SanghParivar. A suivre donc.

#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.

The #UttarPradesh state government has forgotten the riot survivors of Muzaffarnagar and Shamli. This apathy towards the survivors of one of the most deadly instances of communal violence in recent years is just not acceptable.

7 women from #Muzaffarnagar and Shamli filed cases of gang-rape in the face of intimidation and continuing threats. However, 5 years later, justice remains elusive. They have received little assistance from authorities to rebuild their lives.

#EndTheWait Image
Aarzoo (name changed), 1 of the survivors, told us in Aug 2018, “I have now lost all faith. It has been five years since I last filed my complaint. No one has come to help me or my family for so many years now."
