The government has set up a committee to rewrite all of our criminal laws. Here's why the Committee should be disbanded. (A thread)
Criminal laws define the limits of what we can do without the fear of punishment. They are meant to have safeguards to ensure that the police, the Government, and those in power cannot jail, punish or kill people at will.
All indications suggest that this committee has been set up to widen the net of criminal laws and to dilute what safeguards exist to prevent unfair prosecutions/persecution and wrongful convictions.

3. You are casteist if you say, “We LET the Dalits speak".

Stop calling people 'misandrist' when they say "Men are trash".
First of all, we KNOW that good men exist, 'surprisingly' we know that. Using a simple snake metaphor by Jesse Vhasy, "We all know that snakes are dangerous, yet there are some snakes which are not deadly. (1/n)
However, you never hear people say ‘some snakes are dangerous, some are not’. They just say, ‘snakes are dangerous’ because it is hard for the person to tell which snakes are dangerous and which snakes are not, so they urge people to be cautious of all snakes." (2/n)
"Men Are Trash" is like saying "Fruits are sweet." Not all fruits are sweet but we don't say "fruits are sweet but some fruits are sour", it's simple linguistic understanding. It’s common sense-we say it because there are more than enough men to make us feel afraid(3/n)
