The Citizenship Amendment Act in #India has received much intl attention and generated heated debate and protests that provoked a police crackdown and rioting, including the recent #DelhiViolence that resulted in over 50 deaths. Why is the #CAA problematic?

A thread…
What is #CAA? It provides a fast track to Indian citizenship for specifically non-Muslim migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan already in India; removes the illegal migrant label for specified groups; and protects them from legal action in regard to citizenship.
The government argues the #CAA’s only purpose is to protect persecuted minorities in neighboring countries, a laudable goal in of itself (and a key reason my org @USCIRF was formed), and has no impact on Indian Muslims.

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?

Linking of #Aadhaar - #NPR began in Telangana in 2015 and the work continued till late 2017.

The #Telangana government spent crores for both NPR updating and seeding of Aadhaar with NPR database.

Breaking: In the possible first blow to the country’s statistical system due to #CAA_NRCProtests, the government may defer a key socio-economic survey as surveyors are facing the wrath of people who see it as an exercise for determining their citizenship.
business-standard.com/article/econom…
The decision to recommend the postponement of the NSO’s 78th round of survey on domestic tourism expenditure and multiple indicators, which began last month, was taken at a meeting of an expert committee on Wednesday. The government will take a final call now.
The survey, scheduled to be conducted during January-December 2020, is aimed at mapping the multiple indicators of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals 2030 for the first time and is collecting information on migration patterns of citizens, purchase of houses, etc

@rajinikanth Sir, you have said students should not be misled &should consult elders/learned people about #CAA_NRC #NPR .Can you kindly answer a few questions so that we are all enlightened?1.What will happen to those who are unable to produce docs needed to prove citizenship?1/n
2.If a Hindu from say, Tamil Nadu or Karnataka does not have documents what happens to him or her and likewise if a Muslim from TN does not have documents what happens to them?
3. Do you support the concept of putting people in detention camps ? 2/n
4. Do you support disenfranchisement of/removal of all Govt.benefits to people if they don't have citizenship documents irrespective of religion? Specifically should a Hindu who has no documents also be put in detention camp or be disenfranchised?

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

You read it here first
Please read upto the last few tweets to understand how this applies to your life

Wild boars are a nuisance for farmers
They destroy crops & farmers lose heavily
Fierce & powerful creatures, they move around in family groups with strong bonds

1/n
When a trap is set, it captures only individual boars
& surviving boars learn fast & avoid those traps thereafter
Making hunting down an entire group a long & arduous exercise
So its better to ensure that the entire sounder (a family of wild boars) are eliminated in one shot

2/n
Trappers & hunters follow a specific strategy:
A spot near their usual stomping grounds is selected
A circular area is fenced off with 1 or 2 points of entry & egress
Which can be closed with trapdoors
Corn or a similar bait is placed here for the boars to feast on

Memo:
Subj: #CAA_NRC_NPR - The UK experience with a National Identity Register.
To: #Citizens of #India
Recommendation: The Protests should continue
Summary: The Identity Cards Act, 2006 was finally repealed in 2010 as unworkable, and violative of civil liberties.
2/n
Following the Sept 11 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre, New York, the level of paranoia was high. One of the ideas to make Britain safe was to introduce compulsory Identity cards for every one. The full history of the National Identity Register is detailed..

The detail is eerily similar to what India is proposing.
The Act specified fifty categories of information that the National Identity Register could hold on each citizen,[1] including ...

#EPWConversations: Today, @digitaldutta, one of our panellists for #DataSocieties, will be talking about data and elections from @epw_in's handle. We invite you to join the conversation and ask questions.
Data is being used to influence us, and our society everywhere. Data is being weaponised during elections now, to spread misinformation using micro-targeting. This essentially involves influencing every individual, uniquely based on their personal data. | @digitaldutta
Politicians have always influenced voters based on their caste, religion and class, and this identity politics has been important for communities to claim their rights as well. This is changing, with new networks to influence voters using their personal data. | @digitaldutta

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: tl.gd/n_1sr4hba /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

१) CAA आणि NRC जोडून पाहू नये असे सरकारी पक्षकार म्हणतात.
-
केंद्रीय गृहमंत्र्यांनी अनेकदा NRC येईल अशी विधाने केली आहेत ती अनावधानाने झाली आहेत?
-
आसाम मधील CAA NRC मध्ये १२ लाख हिंदूंना/गैर मुसलमानांना नागरिकता मिळेल?

२) जर NRC येणार नसेल तर

संसदेच्या संयुक्त सत्रात मा. राष्ट्रपतींनी NRC लवकरच लागू केली जाईल असे का म्हटले?
-
जर हे खरे असेल तर हा निर्णय विना CABINET च्या परवानगीने झाला का?
-
जर असेल तर याची चौकशी करून कॅबिनेट सचिवांची हकालपट्टी का नाही केली?

I encountered some genuine concerns about #CAA_NRC_NPR in many people's minds.

In a way misinformation spreads fast and in very lethal way, but I am certain that Government could not clarify the whole exercise in crystal clear manner, with unanimity and solidarity.
As I am reading, researching, watching from quite a while now, Explaining the actual scenario verbally or personally to a mass of people is not possible to me at this point, so taking this SM route to spread awareness.

I will link some govt sources here to avoid over explaining
Lets have step by step knowledge about these things. Lets start with #NPR as it is smaller and very straightforward thing!

Pure misinformation led #NPR getting connected with #CAA_NRC. It should be looked as a joint exercise with Census.

5 Questions

1. What was May doing in #NewDelhi when #demonetization was announced?
2. Why the event was sponsored by a bankrupt #CrownAgent firm blacklisted in India?
3. Who lifted the Ban & gave contract to #DeLaRue to print our notes?
lemonde.fr/economie/artic…
4. Why the same bankrupted & blacklisted (for colluding with Pakistan ) British #CrownAgent #DeLaRue bailed-out by #demonetization contract is illegally smuggling Biometrics of Indians captured during Pilot Project of #NPR #NRC?
greatgameindia.com/national-popul…
5. Why is there absolute silence on these questions by mainstream media which is obsessed with all things Pakistan?

By awarding #demonetization contract to the blacklisted #CrownAgent #DeLaRue, India's National Security has been compromised!

Last evening, over a conversation with brother SanjayHegde, we concluded, #ModiSarkar is simply not interested in talking to the anti #CAA_NRC_NPR protesters & would prefer to wear them down .
In the meanwhile, affiliates will go full steam ahead with disinformation campaigns.
Hence, it is important to be clear about what the #CAA_NRC_Protests are about.
The #CAA_NRCProtests aren't against granting citizenship to oppressed minorities of neighbouring countries.
Granting citizenship to those seeking refuge, is a welcome move.
Had #CAA2019 been religion neutral, there would have been no reason to oppose it.
But the intrusive nature of the planned #NPR & the stated plans of a nationwide #NRC with #CAA2019 in place as a enabling legislation, make the whole exercise suspect.

When every Indian is asked to prove his nationality and his claim to Citizenship on the basis of documents - not just his own but also of his parents - then the State will have total control - ownership almost - of every citizen's life and liberty.
My father was a graduate employed in the Railways. I dont have a birth certifcate, never mind my late parents. the earliest document I can produce is school leaving cert from the lid 60s - and that does not have my full name on it. I'd have to bribe my way into #NCR
The whole #NPR / #NCR process seems ripe for #Corruption and #venality on a massive scale. I know many #NRI's (foreign citizens with #OCI status) who have an #Aadhar while being ineligible for it because they are non-residents. With bribery you can get any document you want
