They can't run the economy, they have embarrassed India again and again, but nobody can take away from the #BJP its discipline and team spirit in the violent repression department. #CAA_NRCProtests
People need to understand this. There aren't any queues of people standing at the borders looking to enter India.
CAB is not really directed at them.
It is directed at Muslims who live in India. First use NRC. Then deny them citizenship by exclusion from CAB. It's a poll campaign
Which is not to say it doesn't discriminate between those seeking refuge. It does.
But that's incidental. The real targets are in India
@itsbhavikjoshi This government is taking us on a roller-coaster ride - only it is only dowhill. Every day a new blow to our democracy - and this is being done deliberately. Each advances the BJPs agenda and keeps us away from the mess BJP is making of the economy.
@Onlylikethat And the longest travel time, am sure.
@itsbhavikjoshi There was a Nirbhaya like movement brewing. Diffuse that, blunt the impact of CAB, take mind away from economy.
27 years ago, to the day, a Hindu mob destroyed the Babri Masjid, thereby robbing all Indians of a priceless piece of their cultural heritage.
This year, what the mob began extrajudicially, the Supreme Court finished through judicial opinion. My latest -- https://caravanmagazine.in/religion/ayodhya-babri-masjid-ram-mandir-supreme-court-audrey-truschke
@alistrap True that. But they claim to be. That is why I say implementation.
@alistrap Yes. Theory of communism is great, but the implementation is quite something else. Look at China, masdive human rights violations in a totalitarian regime.
@alistrap You think the despicables respect human rights?
Btw, a comrade also said there is nothing called human rights.
The jubilant reactions to the extra-judicial murder of the Hyderabad rape accused is the clearest demonstration of why Modi is so popular and forevermore will be so. Everyone knows the encounter was fake. The people cheering it on are fully cognisant of the lies, but their bloodlust is satisfied and that is all that matters. This is the prism from which they view this government also.
I find it hard to believe we would have seen the same celebration as we are seeing today IF rape victim was Muslim or dalit and those accused of rape were upper caste/ middle class.
The same people celebrating now would have readily found an excuse to defend them... Either "they couldn't have done it" OR straightforward "he is one of us anyway", "boys will be boys" etc.
@ranjona Just because they are relatives, they should not be protected. Only reason they are is that they are the economic engines & for "society".
In a just society, all men who assault must be tried according to a just law and treated, put away. Just to ensure the victims are safe & no one else is assaulted. No killings.
Police force brags about encounter as a means to deliver "justice". Lawmakers call for lynching as a means to deliver "justice". They're playing to the galary. We are the galary. Abetting this barbarism.
