There has been a lot of outrage about the scrubbing of #MaulanaAzad from the history textbooks in India by the BJP, and justifiably so.

A thread 🧵. (1/n)
But for the last 75 years, nobody seems to have been outraged by the fact that the greatest Indian public intellectual of the 21st century, Dr. BR #Ambedkar, was practically scrubbed from history textbooks by Congress governments and BJP governments alike.

Sure, when I studied about Ambedkar in Maharashtra State Board textbooks, they told me that he was the author of the #indianconstitution and had grown up enduring great #castediscrimination. But THAT WAS ALL.

1/9 Thread on #Reservation System which many will not like it, But lets face same facts

The reservation system in India is a discriminatory and outdated policy that only serves to deepen the divide between different social groups.
2/9 It's a form of reverse discrimination that unfairly privileges certain groups over others, and does nothing to address the underlying systemic inequalities.
3/9 The reservation system is based on the outdated and flawed notion of caste, which has no place in modern society and only serves to perpetuate social divisions.

THREAD #EWSQuota: On Monday, the SC delivered a three-two verdict upholding the validity of the 10% quota in educational institutions and government jobs for the economically weaker sections of the general quota introduced by the Modi government in 2019.… Image
While three judges held that the EWS reservation was constitutionally valid, two judges disagreed. They maintained that this reservation was discriminatory since it excluded members of the SC, ST and socially and educationally backward classes.… Image
Why the Supreme Court upheld the validity of quotas for the Economically Weaker Sections?…

#PlacesOfWorshipAct 1991 में पास हुआ, जिसके अनुसार हिंदू अपने छीने गए मंदिरों पर दावा करके वापिस नहीं ले सकते!

उसी देश में, उसी संसद ने, उसी सत्ता ने, 1995 में #WaqfAct पास किया जिसके अनुसार #WaqfBoard/मुसलमान मस्जिद, दरगाह या कब्रिस्तान की दावे की भूमि को ही नहीं,

किसी भी भूमि को अपना घोषित कर सकते हैं, इसके बाद अपील भी उन्हीं से करनी होगी, निर्णय भी उन्हीं का होगा।

उस समय देश में 80% हिंदू थे, संसद में 95% सांसद हिंदू थे, कानून मंत्रालय जो नए ऐक्ट तैयार करता है उसमें 95% प्रतिशत हिंदू थे, फिर भी ये दोनों राक्षसी कानून पास हुए।

हम हिंदू, वास्तविकता में जीवन से क्या चाहते क्या हैं?

What are our desires, expectations from life?

भूमि- वो मुसलमान छीन रहे हैं!
लड़कियाँ- वो मुसलमान छीन रहे हैं!
धन- वो मुसलमान हमसे ही लूट/कमा रहे हैं…..

और बचा क्या ??

This house belongs to my friend who comes from a lower caste family

He got admision to NITs based on quota despite scoring less
He again used the same reservation 2 get job in PSU
He was not happy with his job, so he used the same reservation for IIM. #independenceday
He is still getting a reservation in India because his grandfather was poor 50 years ago.

After completing his MBA from IIM, he recently posted on Linkedin- "Hard work pays off"

#India is always going to be a developing poor country if it neglects merit and performance.

#Reservation is harming not only the general category people, but the entire country.

Many of us are aware of the many contributions of Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj of #Kolhapur to social reform, including the introduction of #reservation in government jobs for #backwardclasses in 1902. But #DidYouKnow what triggered this drastic step? 1/4
While performing religious rituals in the Panchganga River in October 1899, he noticed that the priests were not chanting mantras from the Vedas, but from the Puranas. The explanation given to him by the palace priests left him aghast! 2/4
They explained that only #Brahmins had the right to perform ‘Vedokta’ rituals and since Marathas were ‘Shudras’, they could perform rituals only from the Puranas. 3/4

Almost after 2 years , I had a chance to converse with one of my senior colleague who is getting retired soon. He's a BRAHMIN and I respect him a lot because of his knowledge, sincerity and caring. Due to his straightforwardness he lost many great opportunities in the company.
The meeting was unplanned but we spoke for about an hour. Remembered good old days and timeline moved to 2013-2014!

Thats the time , a group of us , die hard fans of Modi , using all the loopholes of company rules, have campaigned for Modi. The best one was NaMo campaign.
NaMo campaign - we stopped saying Hello, Hi, Bye, Good morning, evening .. everything and replaced with "NaMo". Lost a lot of close friends, colleagues , relatives 🤦! Spending money was another matter. We almost found an Avatar in Modi.

The biggest discrimination in India is #EnglishApartheid. The State funds medical colleges, engineering colleges, MBA, High Courts, in English-medium *only*, excluding 90% of the population.

If you care about #SocialJustice why not #Reservation for Tamil-medium instead?
The fact is all the "Tamil pride" of the so-called "Dravidian" parties is for lip-service only. The agenda is English and Christianization. That's the #DravidianModel (itself a colonial construct). That's what the @PWilsonDMK et al fight for.
I thought they made them English medium, at least partially.

Senior Advocate Gopal Shankarnarayanan appearing for the respondent continues arguing...

Justice L Nageswara Rao- The identification of the Community has been done in 1994, Can it be said that the giving 10.5% is identification please focus on this and make your submissions.
Shankarnarayanan - in 1994 act it doesn't appear that there is a particular community, section 7 of the 1994 Act they are using the phrase that it includes the backward classes and as may be notified.

#NEETPG #NEETcounselling #Reservation
Sr Adv Arvind Datar: Since time is short, should I just give bullet points?
SC: Yes
Datar: They formed a committee in 2006 that gave a report in 2010. I'll call it the Pandey report as Ajay Bhushan Pandey led it.
The Sino committee came to the conclusion after extensive study..
Datar: The commission consulted state govt and UTs, NGOs and social leaders. It contains exhaustive discussion of each and every party. For eg Tamil Nadu said we have 69% reservation we don't need economic one at all.
It's very detailed, they've gone state wise.

Adv: If the person is not efficient, the government will immediately throw him out.

Bench: Where's the question of gathering efficiency data?
Bench: How many people should be there in the committee? What are you arguing? That's all irrelevant. Don't waste the court's time.

<Reservation in Promotion: October 5>

Today, the SC will hear a group of 130 petitions concerning the implementation of the Court's decision in M Nagraj v Union of India (2006).

In M Nagraj, the Court held that SC/STs can be granted reservations in promotion.

The Court partially upheld the Nagraj judgment in Jarnail Singh (2018). It struck down the requirement for States to demonstrate backwardness when granting reservation in promotion.
It also introduced the idea of creamy layer exclusion.

In the present petitions, the Court had previously ordered all parties to appraise the Attorney General about their issues with the policy. The AG was directed to consolidate these issues for the Court's deliberation.

- Govt has majority, so doesn't listen

- When states started protesting, people started protesting and with an eye on election, you brought this Bill now
- But we also demand that 50% ceiling be removed, approach SC, let states decide

Yesterday I was on 2 Tamil TV debates on 27% #Reservation announced for OBC candidates in UG&PG Medical admissions.What struck me more than claims from panelists that it was their party/movement's efforts that forced Central Govt to announce this,was their take against EWS quota
EWS was passed in Parliament with almost all parties incl.Congress,CPM, BSP,SP,TMC etc. supporting it. Yet in TN most Dravidian parties have a problem with it that no one in the rest of India seems to have.(Like for NEET). Mind you EWS does not touch the existing quotas but still
they oppose it. I supported 27% reservation announcement and said it is likely to reach the needy as creamy layer among OBC wd be excluded and those who need help the most wd get the benefits. I also supported the EWS quota. Then I wondered why only Dravidian parties opposed it.
