But publishes the anti-India & anti-Hindu narrative book on #ShaheenBaghProtests
6 yrs of @narendramodi govt with full majority at Centre & couldn't even touch this eco-system, let alone destroying it & creating a positive & Pro-India eco-system. Image

This is a small thank you note for @swati_gs, @UnSubtleDesi & their amazing colleagues at @OpIndia_com & @SwarajyaMag. Also @SanjeevSanskrit. For the brilliant on-ground, hard-core news reporting.
Had it not been for them, the narrative of #DelhiRiotTruth would've been different!
When propagandist TV channel editors were engaged in building up an anti-Hindu narrative in the name of #DelhiRiotTruth, these journalists busted their propaganda one report at a time.
They reported how Hindus were systematically targeted & slaughtered in the #DelhiRiot2020.
They tried to say that #DelhiBurns was a pogrom orchestrated by the RSS and the BJP against the Muslims, exactly the way that idiot prime minister in Pakistan tries to portray.
But @SwarajyaMag and @OpIndia_com single-handedly fought that Pakistani narrative.
Kudos to them.

#ShaheenBaghProtests case: #SupremeCourt says it doesn't want to expand the scope of this petition. This petition was for a limited purpose and that we don't want to take up things that weren't before us originally, says Justice Kaul.

#DelhiViolence
#SupremeCourt adds what has happened in #Delhi is unfortunate & that since Delhi High Court is already in cession of some matters, top court won't entertain any new plea on #DelhiViolence.
On #ShaheenBaghProtests case, the #SupremeCourt remarks that the environment isn't conducive to hear even the road blockades case. Sanity has to be maintained by everyone when a matter is to be heard, adds the judges.

Petitions against #ShaheenBaghProtests: #SupremeCourt: Judges observe that the question is where can they protest? Can they protest on streets? We aren't saying people don't have a right to protest even when the law is under challenge before this court but where to protest?
"If everybody starts blocking roads even when they have genuine grievances, where will that take us," says Justice SK Kaul.
"Our concern is limited. This is today one section of people, tomorrow there can be another section on a different situations. Everybody will be on roads."
This will create chaos, remarks the #SupremeCourt while asserting that roads can't be blocked howsoever genuine grievances are. As former Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah seeks an audience too, judges ask him why doesn't he persuade the #ShaheenBaghProtesters.

Shaheen Bagh Road Blockade: Certain section of society is aggreived by a law. Validity of law is pending in SC

We are not saying because it is pending in SC, people dont have right to protest.

The question is where to protest. It should not be a place like a street, remarks SC
Democracy works on expression of views. But there are lines and boundaries. They can protest and need not wait for SC Judgment. But issue is if road is the place to hold protests, says Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul.
#ShaheenBaghProtests: Alternate roads have been blocked leading to traffic, says lawyer for intervenor Chandra Shekhar Azad.

A protest based on art.

A protest based on books.

A protest based on the constitution.

A protest led by women fighting for us all.

For humanity, for pluralism, for equal rights.

For Ambedkar, For Savitribai, For Fatima Shekh, For Phule.

This is #ShaheenBagh. Image
The Muslim women leading the #ShaheenBaghProtests, organizing speeches, and giving them.

Sitting through the cold damp nights, nursing babies, asking if everyone had tea, while staring in the eyes of terror are writing a new history for the country.

We owe them for this. Image
This is the Fatima Sheikh - Savitri Bai Phule Library at #ShaheenBagh.

They’ve recently started a weekly lecture series, have daily reading sessions and are seeking more books to add to their collection.

Before you react to the news of the second firing incident at the #ShaheenBaghProtests site, remember the fact below.
This man fired in the air. Then the police had enough time to approach him and arrest him.
Repeat: He fired in the air then didn't attempt to run away. Image
First the man fires in the air & then leaves the empty bullet cases on the road so that media gets their "shots". Media also gets to conveniently collect the spent bullets.
The incident again looks totally orchestrated to me.
What does it look to you?
The man now gives a similar statement to the media. And proclaims that he is a Hindu nationalist.
If you are in Delhi you know that such people are available on hire in dozens. They are petty criminals.
The whole thing again stinks of script and drama

What does the Facebook page of "Rambhakt Gopal" who just shot #CAA_NRCProtests protesters tell us?

A #thread that shows:

-- how the "Goli Maaron Saalon Ko" call by a BJP minister and candidate works in inciting violence

-- what he and his supporters want Image
How do we know this is the same "Rambhakt Gopal"? He did a Facebook live before he went to shoot the protesters. His facebook page is full of images from Jamia.

He also said this #thread Image
He is also keen to end the #ShaheenBaghProtests.

The fact that he went to Jamia is a deliberate decision. Will explain that in subsequent tweets. Image

Right I got to work as soon as I saw the shooting. I focused on #RepublicTV to see how they would cover the incident #jamiafiring where one #RambhaktGopal shot a student. In what follows, pay attention to the topmost header of the screenshots.
Republic TV is trying very hard to blame the violence on the students of Jamia.
They’re spinning the narrative where they want to say that Jamia or someone from it was involved in the shooting.

Sharjeel Imam is studying Modern History at JNU. He writes for The Wire, Quint, FirstPost & appeared on NDTV

If we make ruckus violence, road blocks in Delhi it will be international news, distrupt Delhi. We don't to be Gandhi

@TarekFatah @Payal_Rohatgi @pokershash @desimojito
@TarekFatah @Payal_Rohatgi @pokershash @desimojito We will organise together more after JNU riots and we are distributing invitations in mosques so more people will come and we will disrupt Delhi. Nehru was fascist. Kashmir mein dhoka hua
@TarekFatah @Payal_Rohatgi @pokershash @desimojito We made a platform to raise our voice & we're 200 people from JNU. This video was uploaded on facebook by group ‘Mu$lim Students of JNU’. Not only in Delhi but also in every city where Muslims are, there should be roadblock. Don't give damn to Congress

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

यह हमारा भविष्य नहीं, यह हमारा आज हैं।

These children will create the India we were unable to create for them. They're not the future, they're the present.

The ruling Congress government in Punjab has passed a resolution in the State Assembly demanding scrapping of the controversial CAA. Hope all the states which ruled by anti BJP govt no matter who is @INCIndia or @asadowaisi 's alliance party should pass such resolution.
And not to make any type of contradiction between us unlike @NitishKumar who voted to support CAA in parliament and issued the notification of NPR
#CAA_NRCProtests
#nrcवायाnpr
#NRC_CAA_NPR
and in this way @PunjabGovtIndia become second in list after @CMOKerala for passing the resolution to scrap the controversial CAA meanwhile such act comprises within the territory of union list.

There is a process to derailing a people's movement, in this case, the anti-#CAA_NRC_Protest the Modi-Shah-led Central government did not really expect, or at least not to this extent, and I'd like to put all that I can think of at one place, in this #thread.
1) Pitting one against another.

Oldest and easiest trick they use. And it's quite easy in a country like India because we are so diverse that sometimes I feel this idea of a "nation" is a farce. Racism, casteism, majority's minority complex, and many other factors enable this.
How do they do it?

a) One religion against another. In this case, easier, Muslims against every other religion. Isolation and alienation.

Best example: "They chanted "Hinduon se Azaadi". What do they mean? They want to kill all Hindus?"

They know nuance is for the elite.

Decoding #ShaheenBaghStandoff . It started with AAP MLA #amanatullahkhan 's speech on December 15, 2019, following which announcements were made by loudspeakers to goad people to reach #JamiaMilia . Outsiders came there, hurled Molotov cocktails, stones on @DelhiPolice (1)
As #JamiaMilia simmered, politicians joined the game. Competitive politics between #amanatullahkhan & Congress' #AsifMohammad aggravated it. Then appeared older women & they occupied Road no 13 & both carriageways were blocked. Asif M Khan feared Amanatullah taking credit (2)
Amanatullah retreated for sometime, Asif Khan sat on Dharna & implored DCP Southeast to arrest him but he refused to play ball. #ShaheenBaghProtest kept growing with hidden hands supplying funds & food packs, tea, snacks, warm clothes, blankets were provided to protesters. (3)
