1. I disagree with Karnataka High Court's judgement on #hijab. It’s my right to disagree with the judgement & I hope that petitioners appeal before SC

2. I also hope that not only @AIMPLB_Official but also organisations of other religious groups appeal this judgement... ... as it has suspended fundamental rights to freedom of religion, culture, freedom of speech and expression

3. Preamble to the Constitution says that one has LIBERTY of thought, EXPRESSION, belief faith, and WORSHIP....

There are reports that there may be no #census. Under the dynamic & able leadership of Narendra, India is so week that it cannot count its population anymore. Indians managed a census without fail EVERY DECADE, despite higher poverty, instability, external threats than today 1/n Why doesn’t the govt want to do census before 2024? Maybe because it will be able to avoid caste census. If caste census figures come out, we’ll know exactly how few Upper Castes have cornered most of India’s wealth & left nothing for the vast majority of Indians 2/n

By exchanging sweets at areas where Chinese soldiers have come in and occupied our territory in Ladakh, what is the message Modiji trying to send to Xi Jinping? In contrast, China is putting out belligerent videos from Galwan Our government is scared to take China’s name. My questions in Parliament were all denied. And now we have this shameful spectacle of total capitulation to China in Ladakh. Why are we endorsing Chinese aggression in our territory?

इनकी तारीफ़ करने से पहले एक बार ये थ्रेड ज़रूर पढ़ें।

1. रायपुर के #नरसंहारी_सम्मेलन में कालीचरण ने गांधी जी को गाली दी और गोडसे की तारीफ़ की। इस बात पर आपत्ति जताते हुए राम सुंदर रूठ कर सम्मेलन से चले गए।
2. राम सुंदर छत्तीसगढ़ गौ-सेवा आयोग के अध्यक्ष हैं और इनका कैबिनेट रैंक है। ये धर्मसंसद के मुख्य संरक्षक थे।सम्मेलन कांग्रेस के बिना मुमकिन ही नहीं था। राम सुंदर के संरक्षण में ना सिर्फ़ गांधी जी को गाली दी बल्कि ये भी कहा कि इस्लाम का मक़सद राष्ट्र पर क़ब्ज़ा करना है

In order to distract from #HaridwarGenocidalMeet, a clipped 1 min video is being circulated from 45 min speech I gave in Kanpur. I’ll set the record straight:

1. I did not incite violence or give threats. I talked about POLICE ATROCITIES Here’s the full video in TWO PARTS [Cont] 2. As you can see in the above video & the one here, I was talking about POLICE ATROCITIES in Kanpur & addressing such cops who think they have immunity to violate people’s liberties because of Modi-Yogi

3. I said do not confuse our silence for acquiescence. 2/n

I’ve instructed AIMIM #Uttarakhand Pres @DrNayyerkazmi1 to file a police complaint against #HaridwarHateAssembly. It’s a clear case of incitement to genocide. Our team has attempted to file it today but officers in Roorkee were unavailable due to other engagements 1/n If strict action isn’t taken, then we’ll launch a state-wide agitation demanding arrest & exemplary punishment

The calls for genocide & ethnic cleansing against Muslims are culmination of 60yrs of dehumanising speech by Sangh Parivar against Muslims & Christians 2/n

The satellite images from the China border speak louder than the silence of PM Modi and his ministers. The truth is visible to all. China in inside the territory that was controlled by us. So called Disengagement is to our disadvantage. PLA is keeping us under pressure by building more permanent infrastructure and deploying more troops on the border.

When I asked questions about the situation on the border in the Lok Sabha, all of them were illegally denied by a scared government.

Opposed the linking of AADHAAR & electoral rolls while government passed it in the din of the house. The law was passed as a farce. I wasn’t even allowed any time to raise my objections, while the Chair allowed the Minister to make a detailed statement 1/n
I had submitted in writing demanding a division of votes so that we could register our protest against this unconstitutional law but that was also not allowed. If I were allowed to speak, I’d have raised the following points: 2/n

महिलाओं के लिए शादी की न्यूनतम उम्र को 18 से बढ़ाकर 21 साल करने के प्रस्ताव को मोदी सरकार ने मंजूरी दे दी है। ऐसी पितृसत्तात्मकता मोदी सरकार की नीति बन चुकी, इससे बेहतर करने की उम्मीद भी हम सरकार से करना छोड़ चुके हैं। 1/n 18 साल के लोग क़ानूनी तौर पर अनुबंध पर हस्ताक्षर कर सकते हैं, कारोबार चला सकते हैं, चुनाव में प्रधान मंत्री, सांसद और विधायक चुन सकते हैं, लेकिन शादी नहीं कर सकते? 18 साल के उम्र में भारत के नागरिक यौन संबंध बना सकते हैं, बिना शादी के साथ रह सकते हैं, लेकिन शादी नहीं कर सकते?2/n

Modi govt has decided to increase the age of marriage for women to 21. This is typical paternalism that we have come to expect from the govt. 18 year old men & women can sign contracts, start businesses, choose Prime Ministers & elect MPs & MLAs but not marry? 1/n They can consent to sexual relationships and live-in partnerships but cannot choose their life partners? Just ridiculous.

Both men & women should be allowed to legally marry at 18 as they’re treated as adults by the law for all other purposes 2/n

THREAD: 1. Govt wants to amend Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969. The amendment will allow Central govt to create a unified database of all registered births & deaths. Currently, this is carried out by states. But now Union will be allowed to collect data 2. The unified database will be used for NPR-NRC, electoral rolls, passports, etc. Currently, these are all separate processes. For example, electoral roll enrolment is done by an INDEPENDENT body, ECI. Now Union govt can allow birth/death register to be used for enrolment

1. As usual, RSS Mohan’s speech today was full of lies & half-truths. He called for a population policy & repeated the lie that Muslim & Christian population has increased. Muslim population growth rate has had the sharpest decline among all. There’s no ‘demographic imbalance’1/n What one has to worry about are the social evils of child marriages & sex-selective abortions. 84% of married kids are Hindus. Between 2001-2011, Muslim female-male ratio leaped from 936 to 951 women for every 1000 Muslim men. But, the Hindu ratio only rose from 931 to 939 2/n

Sir @rajnathsingh you said that Savarkar’s grovelling mercy petitions were on Gandhi’s advise.

1. Here’s the letter to Savarkar from Gandhi. No mention of petition to British begging for leniency, mercy & promising to be a faithful servant of the crown. 1/n Image 2. First petition Savarkar wrote was in 1911, JUST 6 months after getting to prison. Gandhi was then in South Africa. Savarkar wrote again in 1913/14. Gandhi’s advise is from 1920

3. Is it a lie that this “Veer” rejected tricolour & wanted Bhagva as our flag? (July 1947) 2/n

Modi’s speech on human rights at #NHRC today exposed his problematic & incorrect understanding of human rights. Most unfortunate part was that there was only one passing mention of the constitution, but references to ‘tradition’, ‘culture’ & religion could be found throughout. 1. A constant Hindutva talking point was repeated by Modi; that human rights & duties are dependent on each other. No. Rights against state always trump duties. Duties are not enforceable, rights are.

The statements after the latest round of talks with #China clearly show that they’ll continue to remain on Indian territory & @PMOIndia can do nothing. Sad that a new status quo has been created on LAC. This denies our forces access to the areas they traditionally patrolled. 1/ This loss of control over our territory to China has been on for 20 months, but Parliament has not been briefed in detail nor have questions been taken in an open press conference. Why is Modi silent? Or does he still say that no one has encroached our territory? 2/

May Allah give strength to Shaheed Moinul Haque sb’s loved ones. #AssamHorror

-There must be swift action against those responsible for his murder, token arrests won’t do

-Compensate Haque sb’s family

-Immediately stop the displacement of Bengali Muslims in Darrang 1/n -Rehabilitate all the displaced families

-Stop demonising Indian citizens & calling them Bangladeshi

We know from past experience that even these basic demands will not be met. At the very least, we will make it a point to remember Haque sb. 2/n

आज कुछ उग्रवादी गुंडों ने मेरे दिल्ली के मकान पर तोड़-फोड़ की।इनकी बुज़दिली के चर्चे तो वैसे ही आम हैं।हमेशा की तरह, इनकी वीरता सिर्फ़ झुंड में ही दिखाई देती है।वक्त भी ऐसा चुना जब मैं घर पर नहीं था। गुंडों के हाथों में कुल्हाड़ियाँ और लकड़ियाँ थीं, घर पर पत्थर बाज़ी की गयी। 1/n ImageImageImage मेरा नेम प्लेट तोड़ा गया और 40-साल से हमारे साथ काम करने वाले राजू के साथ मार-पीट भी की गयी।

साम्प्रदायिक नारे लगाए गए और मुझे क़त्ल करने की धमकी भी दी गयी। राजू के घर में रहने वाले छोटे से बच्चे घबराए हुए हैं।झुंड में कम-अज़-कम 13 लोग थे। 6 दिल्ली पुलिस की हिरासत में हैं। 2/n

उत्तर प्रदेश के 19 प्रतिशत आबादी वाले मुसलामानों का एक भी जिला अध्यक्ष नहीं है। मंसूबा बंद तरीक़े से हमें सियासी, म'आशी और समाजी तौर पर दूसरे दर्जे का शहरी बना दिया गया है।1/n उत्तर प्रदेश की एक सियासी पार्टी खुद को भाजपा का सबसे प्रमुख विपक्षी दल बताती है। ज़िला पंचायत के चुनाव में उनके 800 सदस्यों ने जीत दर्ज की थी, लेकिन अध्यक्ष के चुनाव में मात्र 5 अध्यक्ष की सीटों पर उनकी जीत हुई है ऐसा क्यों? क्या बाक़ी सदस्य भाजपा के गोद में बैठ गए हैं? 2/n

Assam CM has again started talk of “population control”. This is Hindutva-speak for blaming poor & marginalised

Here are the facts @himantabiswa

Assam has already achieved replacement levels of TFR 2.1. National TFR is 2.2. In simple words, there’s no population explosion 1/n Central govt has itself opposed coercive family planning & called it unnecessary in the Supreme Court

Govt’s Economic Survey 2018-19: “Population is now growing growing below 1% in South, WB, Punjab, Odisha, ASSAM & Himachal” 2/n

Thanks to @PMOIndia for another episode of an unnecessary lecture that could have been a press release. Reversal of vax policy seems to be result of SC's order. Although blame of a terrible vaccine policy has been put on states, it's Modi who failed to ensure vax supply 1/n Modi put politics before saving lives. Did it create horrible "liberalised" vaccine policy just to insult states? It's always chosen gimmicks over efforts to increase vax production. Forget everything else, only question for PM is why's there such large shortage of vaccines? 2/n

Telganana's Cabinet will be meeting today to discuss the extension of lockdown. I must reiterate my opposition. It's not a strategy to combat COVID-19. It APPEARS as a "hard on pandemic" strategy but all it does is destroy the lives of poor. 1/5 As data shows, COVID cases were already reducing much much before lockdown was imposed on 12th May. It's quite clear that it's not lockdown that helped. It's also clear that COVID can be combatted without lockdown 2/5
