for the lawyers on here: now that deities are legal entities, can they be named as co-conspirators the next time someone lynches a person in their name? asking for a friend

Hello, I'm Saumya. I am an aspiring feminist historian interested in the colonial prison regime in India. My background is in gender & human rights research & advocacy. I'm trying to develop a network for critical thinking around detention & solidarity w/ those working on detention (@detsolnet on the birdsite).

Other than my nerd-qualifications, I <3 fiction, coffee, wine & my sense of humour has been described as dry af.

And then you find out about caste, and then you see increasing militancy and violence and then you see how completely in denial the Hindus are about how their religion is as flawed and problematic as the ones they assert superiority over. And then you see the majoritarian political forces solidify this and inflict unabashed violence and yet the strange idea that Hinduism is a soft, accepting ideology persists!

It’s strange to have grown up listening to a narrative of Hinduism as some sort of open, non-rigid, fluid pantheistic religious belief system while seeing it also play out as quite the opposite. I remember hearing quite often ‘Hinduism isn’t a religion, it’s a way of life’ and other such spiritual pleasantries.

Based on the amazingly detailed, and, I daresay, extremely courageous, reports by Niranjan Takle in The Caravan magazine (@vinod) , a half-decent Supreme Court would have ordered an investigation into the matter.

There was SO much material to go by.

But the subject was too hot to touch.

India has let down Judge Loya.

He is one of my biggest modern heroes. I salute him for his integrity.

The Supreme Court of India endorsed the destruction of Babri Masjid in 1992. This judgment is an act of violence with words. Utter travesty.

Instead of Rana Ayyub deleting her tweet, @amethipolice@twitter.com has deleted their own tweet. LOL

Also they blocked her & now @RanaAyyub@twitter.com trolling Amethi Police 😂😂

Aaron Swartz. Born on this day! November 8, 1986. He would have been 33 today.

November 9 will be observed all over the world as Aaron Swartz Day — an annual event to celebrate Aaron Swartz’s legacy as an activist, programmer, entrepreneur & political organizer.

Hackathons would be organised, where diverse & passionate folks would gather & exchange ideas with each other, who believe in Freedom of #Information & #Education and Securing Digital Space for all.

Remember 9th November! 💜
