The Anatomy of an Indian Liberal #CAA
~Class ~
Privileged, educated, whatchoo wearing to the protest?

~First Language~
Discovered that Kaafiron se Azaadi has such a goosebumpy ring to it.
(Someone just told us that we’re the Kaafirs…go onnnn…!)
~Religious Denomination~
Sort of Hindu. You know that Attithi Devo Bhava stuff & that Kutumba Kutumba.
These Hindutva types must be brought to their knees before Christmas, New Year. Its a really busy time & so many of us are booked to go away …
Hotel cancellations can be killing & moreover, Rahul has to visit his Nani.
Love mulled wine & Christmas cake but thinking of eating all the Biriyani we can because our Muslims friends are going to be taken away to concentration camps ! Thanks to fascist Modi, we might never eat Biryani again !!
~Personal Statement~
Give us a cause.
(Preferably in good weather & with Farhan Akhtar attending)

Also it’s kinda cool wearing that Hijab & showing your finger.
Some of our grandparents came penniless from Lahore, Rawalpindi, Sialkot but we know if they were alive today they wouldn’t want those who were left behind to be now allowed in - to enjoy democracy, opportunity, freedom of worship, equality.… Naah !
~Syncretic Culture~
Giving citizenship to persecuted Hindus & Sikhs doesn’t make Indian culture syncretic, duh.

Aapko darr toh nahi lag raha hai ?
~Mission Statement~
Our comfort depends on an ample supply of the poor.
So let everyone in ! Someone after all has to walk the dog, clean the car.
What do we care as long they our gated condo has two tier security…

Oops, are we confusing #CAB with #NRC …?
Imagine how these fascists work.
They are dividing us by creating confusion. They called it CAB & are now referring to it as CAA. Then they told us there’s something called NRC…
We are not fools you know. We know what you are doing !
Hum Passport Nahi Dikhaenge.
(What if they keep it, lose it. I’ve got a ten year US visa, yaar.)
