This in a country of 190M Muslims and 35M Christians, all multi-multi-generational and scratching their heads about how the birth of faiths in West Asia renders practitioners of those faiths, whose genetic stock is clearly no different from Hindus’ are anything but fully Indian! (The current iteration of this majoritarian-chauvinist thesis is that the 10M Buddhists, 5M Jains and 20M Sikhs, along with 1B+ Hindus are the Dharmics, practitioners of religions born in India, hence the true Indians.)

"There is no way to be polite about it. Indian Home Minister Amit Shah’s proposal is both unconstitutional and bigoted.

My name was there is all drafts of the NRC. Its never about me. The NRC is a farce. Its fundamentally wrong.

There are a lot of people who cannot produce those ridiculous documents, specially the poor and the uneducated.

Please do all that you can to create the awareness to nationwide.

@fayedsouza@twitter.com Students protest all over the world. That is the way they want to change the world. Only foolish governments unleash their storm troopers and police on them. Wise governments are compassionate. They listen. They learn from them.

The timeline of the Electoral Bond Scheme - essentially a money laundering scheme - shows the BJP govt. deliberately ignored the RBI's concerns, gave the Bank only 1 day to respond & amended the RBI Act without deliberating with the institution itself.

Dr. Manmohan Singh argues that the real reason our economy is perishing is because of the BJP govt's "mala-fide unless proven otherwise doctrine of governance" - whereby the govt believes economic participants have deceitful intent unless they can prove otherwise.

JNU Admin is lying about rolling back fee hike.
- 95% of fee hike incl user charges remain
- patriarchal dress code & curfew & scrapping of 24*7 library timings remain
- Partial roll back of room rent ONLY for students w/ families in BPL list, w/ income of below Rs 27000 per annum - just Rs 2250 per month! (So even min wage earners not counted poor)
- 40% JNU students' families earn less than Rs 144000 per annum - Rs 12000 per month, these wd not benefit from roll back! #JNUFeeHikeRemains

A money bill does not have to be cleared by the Upper House to become law. If all that was required to make any bill a money bill was to have a Lok Sabha Speaker with a selfwilled ocular malfunction that sees every bill as a money bill.
