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.
Unconstitutional because he is saying India will accept some people as citizens based solely on their religion, grounds that the Constitution expressly forbids. Bigoted because it is predicated on demonising an entire group of people because of their religion."
When the initial application of NRC took place in Assam, we were part of a huge mistake. It should have been boycotted.
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 #BoycottNRC nationwide.
प्रधानमंत्री कार्यालय ने वित्त मंत्रालय को आदेश देकर खुद के बनाए नियमों को तोड़ते हुए इलेक्टोरल बॉन्ड की अवैध बिक्री को अनुमति दिलवाई वो भी कर्नाटक, छत्तीसगढ़, मध्य प्रदेश, मिजोरम और राजस्थान के अहम चुनावों से ठीक पहले.

Women protesters were manhandled, molested by police, they say
The police didn't do lathi charge, of course. They were just running a special effects make up camp.
This pic was not on yesterday’s many TV debates. A section of TV journalists are behaving like BJP card holders to discredit and destroy JNU.
@email@example.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.
United Nations experts and activists say at least 1 million Uighurs and members of other largely Muslim minority groups have been detained in camps in Xinjiang
At the government-convened meeting, the Opposition demanded that the issues of economic slowdown, job loss and farm distress must be discussed during the session
The organisation observed that the judgment was against the Muslim parties and it was not a final judgment as the option of reviewing it is available under the Constitution of India
It will have to focus more on strengthening diagnostic services and training component
In the process, India has become the world’s most communal polity. A temple or a mosque or the birthplace of a god, should these be the obsessions of a 21st century nation talking about a $5 trillion economy?
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
