A Thread on #SharjeelImam:
Finally listened to the full 40-minute speech by Sharjeel Imam that has created much political and primetime noise. Quick points:
In the said speech, Sharjeel Imam speaks against:
Kanhaiya Kumar
Prof Irfan Habib
Jamia Protest Coordination Committee
Sharjeel Imam doesn't speak against:
PM Modi
Amit Shah

In his view, the current protests have to be centred on Muslim identity and others joining in must do so on Muslim terms.
For him this is a Muslim exclusive fight. TV channels and govt propagandists also would like us to believe the same.
His problem with Jamia Coord Committee is that it's not a Muslim-exclusive club. He laughs at the idea of an all-inclusive, citizens protest.
For him others joining in must also say Allah-o-Akbar.

He complains about being denied stage at Shaheen Bagh for his "views". No wonder Shaheen Bagh protesters cut off ties with him, when tried to turn into a Muslim exclusive club.
Jamia Coord Committee, Shaheen Bagh and all the countrywide protests are diagonally opposite of what Sharjeel Imam would want them to be.
For him this fight is not to save the Constitution. This is not the fight for idea of India as we know it. He is on his own tangent. He excludes, he mocks, he scoffs at the ideas that form the bedrock of the countrywide protests we are seeing.
Radhika Vemula and Sairo Bano hoisting national flag alongwith dadis at Shaheen Bagh, The 600-km human chain in Kerala, The Sikhs running langars at the protest sites, professionals, students, actors all joining for the idea of India are not Sharjeel's ideas of protest.
TV and govt propagandists have run away with one short clip about Assam. Lets be honest, he is talking of a blockade, not CUTTING off or separating Assam and Northeast from India. This can be termed delusional at best.
He is being projected as the "mastermind" of the protests. The new primetime poster boy of the nefarious "Tukde Tukde" propaganda of the regime. Its a Umar Khalid and Kanhaiya episode redux.
Listening to his full speech. It's a rant of a stupid and deluded man. And stupidity and delusion is not sedition. Its just stupidity and delusion.

Whose agenda is he serving and who benefits from his rants? You guess is as good as mine.
