Highlights from Adv. Tanveer Ahmed Mir's rebuttal before a Delhi Court in a Delhi Riots case against sedition accused Sharjeel Imam:

#Sedition #UAPA #SharjeelImam Image
Mir: A man graduating from IIT Bombay, has a good corporate package, leaves that and decides to pursue modern history, but I'm not going to say he lost his head - it's his decision as to how he wants to pursue intellectual brilliance and justify his existence in the world.
Mir says one needs to apply the Kedarnath judgment's interpretation of the sedition provision of IPC because not doing so would imply we are carrying forward a British legacy - they didn't want Indians to rise.

Adv Tanveer Ahmed Mir rebuts Prosecution's arguments against #SharjeelImam who has sought bail in a case connected to #DelhiRiots before Delhi Court. "Sole indictment on the speech. Incumbent duty upon all of us to look at the speech... If it incident violence"
Mir argues in a case of #Sedition against Imam. On #NRC, Mir argues ultimately his client's speech talks about advocating of a policy like... "In a university if we don't debate public policies, where do we debate?" #sharjeel_imam #CAA_NRC #DelhiRiots
Mir: This is a criminal court. We don't go by inferences. I am not denying my speech. For the speech to fall under #Sedition... My friend can't have discretion to add his own thoughts and inferences. #sharjeel_imam #DelhiRiots

Hearing begins

Adv Tanveer Ahmed Mir appearing for Sharjeel begins his arguements.

The speech conveys is that you go for chakka jam so that people are not able to cross over. Fundamentally the right to protest and blockade cannot be equal to sedition.

#sharjeel #UAPA
Mir- I would like to put forth Some judicial precedents which can assist this court to come to a conclusion whether the petitioner is entitled to bail.

Thread: Expressing Muslim sentiment through Bollywood songs

It is said that there's a Bollywood film song to fit any situation. Most useful are the filmy sad songs that, at least in my generation, everyone resorts to listening when they experience heartbreak.
I think that songs of unrequited love are the sweetest and most meaningful. I like to listen to these sad songs of anger, lament, complaint etc even when I am not sad.
Lately, I've felt that many of these songs seem to touch a different painful chord. The lyrics of some of these songs make me think of my relationship with my country and seem to express the emotions that result from my position of being a Muslim.

Lately, I have not been extremely active on Social Media, but today I read this guy write about how the beloved Math teacher picked up the gun. I got curious about his past work. So here we go. A #ThinkinThread about #BashaaratMasood's work so far.
2. Way back in 2015 he wrote this piece where the headline made a sad attempt at sounding cute. Guns and Poses?!
3. 2018 and they are still batting for the #AntiIndia gang. They try to find a cute angle about a little innocent school kid turned Fidayeen. A Fidayeen is a terrorist whose sole aim is dying during an attack and causing maximum damage.

It's clear that #AnuragThakur, #PraveshVarma and #KapilMishra gave provoking statements, Govt should take action on them and #TusharMehta you are Solicitor General of India,not private lawyer of BJP. Stop defending people who are not related to Central Govt.
Let's think, wasn't there any riots before their statements? Wasn't buses were burn in the name of saving dEmOcRaCy? Wasn't AAP MLA's (especially #AmanatullahKhan) also gave provoking speeches? (Which is the root of all this nonsense) Wasn't he shared stage with #SharjeelImam?
Wasn't Delhi Dy CM #ManishSisodia spread fake news by sharing old video of Delhi police saying Police lit up the buses? Wasn't #NDTV journos gave limelight to so called 'Sheros of #Jamia' who doesn't believe in Secularism and Judiciary of this country & rushed to defend Sharjeel?

Many of his points of critique on the Left/Nehru/Gandhi are valid in ways but hyper-exaggerated. He's plain wrong on the Constitution. And his idea of "hamara ilaaka" is as bad as Hindutva.

#SharjeelImam is a cocky, hot-headed scholar with a hero complex.

But a seditionist? No.
His right to be free from the outrageous sedition charge has to be defended against the fact that it was #SharjeelImam who first wanted #ShaheenBagh wound up. When he pulled out in early Jan, he declared in a cock-sure tone that the movement would "die a natural death tonight".
Why? Only because it was not going according to some grand plan cooking in his head. A self-imagined vanguard, Sharjeel couldn't quite countenance the idea that the women at the centre of Shaheen Bagh had will, desire, agency and sense-making capacity of their own.
