In India, Thousands Protest Citizenship Law That Excludes Muslims 1


A controversial citizenship law, the Citizen Amendment Act, has sparked protests across India, with demonstrators fearing that it could endanger the nation’s Muslim minority. The new legislation will provide an expedited path to citizenship for migrants who entered India illegally before 2014 if they are Hindu, Christian, Jain, Buddhist, or Sikh. Muslims, however, are excluded. Demonstrators view the law as blatant discrimination and fear the increasingly authoritarian government is moving away from India’s secular constitution. The unrest has become increasingly violent; as of Saturday, the death toll has reached 23, as nine more people were recently killed in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. The government has responded to the demonstrations by banning large gatherings in areas across the country and ordering mobile internet to be blocked in parts of Delhi.

A police order instructed cellular companies to cut communications in five areas, including locations of planned protests. India leads the world in internet shutdowns, with 67% of shutdowns taking place in India in 2018. Authorities claim they are a way to prevent violence and unrest. This week marked the first time a shutdown had been imposed on the capital – they have also been imposed in Assam, Karnataka, Kashmir, and parts of Uttar Pradesh, home to a large Muslim minority.

“India today has the ignominy of being the largest internet shutdown in the world,” said Sitaram Yechury, leader of the Indian Communist party, to The Guardian. “It is unacceptable … This is worse than what we saw during the [1975-77] emergency. Today’s protests showed the determination of youngsters to not let democracy be butchered. This was not a one-off protest, such protests will continue.” The Congress party leader, Rahul Gandhi, described the internet shutdown as an “insult to India’s soul.” Authorities also announced a blanket ban on all protests in Uttar Pradesh and New Delhi, using a provision knows as Section 144 to forbid gatherings of four or more people. Rahul GandhiThis is an abuse of power and unreasonable violation of fundamental rights which can and should be challenged in the courts,” said Constitutional law expert Gautam Bhatia to the BBC.

Demonstrators fear that this new legislation is part of the government’s larger agenda that could turn India’s Muslim population into second-class citizens. In August, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stripped India’s only Muslim-majority state, Jammu and Kashmir, of its autonomy and statehood. India’s Home Minister Amit Shah also pledged to apply the National Register of Citizens process nationwide to rid India of “infiltrators” and “termites” as a follow-up to the citizenship legislation, which had stoked fear within India’s Muslim population of being targeted and harassed. Already, the mass citizenship check has left millions of Indian Muslims in danger of being declared stateless. Dozens of Muslims have even been lynched by Hindu mobs, with the perpetrators often walking free. And yet, Mr. Modi remains popular and powerful, and anti-Muslim sentiment continues to rise.

Many international observers have condemned the law. The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom said the legislation marked a “dangerous turn” and called upon the U.S. government to consider sanctions against Amit Shah, India’s minister of home affairs. Michelle Bachelet Jeria, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said the law was “fundamentally discriminatory” and appears “to undermine the commitment to equality before the law enshrined in India’s constitution.” Protests have spread to other parts of the world, including the U.S. and Britain. Opponents of the measure are also preparing to challenge its legality in India’s Supreme Court.

Presently, the demonstrations show no signs of letting up. Tens of thousands continue to flood the streets, with solidarity protests being organized in nearly two dozen cities across India, in what has become the biggest political challenge for Prime Minister Modi’s government since it came to power nearly six years ago.

    Y Muslims need to see CAB,UCC and NRC Together – like the Christian Trinity (which is Haram in Islam)

    A lot of the Hindooo Dindoo Bania/Brahmin TV media try to delink the CAB and NRC,and try to make Muslims believe that CAB is not Anti-Muslim and NRC is far off..dindooohindoo

    This is again a strategem of the Fat Pancho Amit Shah and Dishwasher Chaiwala Modi diwmit duopoly.

    Phase 1

    In Phase 1 – the Bania/Brahmin company did cow lynching,love jehad lynchings,rama temple lynchings – to place the Muslims in the siege mentality syndrome.This is the Israeli Model – who first rape and kill the Palestinians – who look to the UN and the USA/EU – who do not do a thing.This starts the siege mentality when the legal system turns its back on the race,and the said race becomes a pawn in the hands of nations,and international organisations.

    Phase 2

    In Phase 2 – after making the Muslims physically insecure and helpless,the Bania/Brahmin company, deliver legal blows like the triple talaq bill,rama temple etc.This is also the Israeli Model – wherein the Jews have conned the USA to shift the embassy to Jerusalem,and reckon it as the capital of Israel.

    Phase 3

    In Phase 3 – which has now commenced you have the trinity of CAB/Uniform Civil Code(UCC) and NRC

    The target of the NRC and the UCC are the Muslims,per se.In CAB,it is an assymetric target – by specifying 3 Islamic nations – and their Hindooo,”so called oppressed minority”.

    The expectation is that Muslims become innured and oblivious of this destruction – just like the Dalits did for 5000 years.

    Phase 4

    In Phase 4 – like the Israelis split the Fatah/PLO etc., the Bania/Brahmin scum will give an OPTION to the minority sects of Muslims,to state in their identity documents their sects.This is the phase of casteing and classing the Muslims – who will ultimately declare,that they are “Hindoo Muslims”

    Minority sects of the Shia,Bohris,Ahmadiyas etc are declared as Non-Muslims in several Islamic nations.West Asian History also records that the Mongol invasions were assisted by these sects.Hence,these sects will in all
    probability toe the line of the Brahmin/Bania vermin – and start offering ritualistic tribute to Rama and the mad team of ape gods

    Phase 5

    In Phase 5 will come the quarantining and class-ing of Indian Muslims and Dalits in special zones and geographies with separate tranist id cards and restrictions on voting and mobility.

    Class is a natural corollary of the caste sanction in the Gita.The aim is to 1st use class to split the Muslim sects and then target the Hindoo castes – namely the Dalits.The Muslims are targetted with the pretext of National Sacurity and the Dalits will be targetted on the grounds of economic security – and then split based on Valmikis etc.

    The Problem of the Indian Muslims

    What is The Problem of the Indian Muslims ? The Gita is the only scripture which authorises caste discrimination before a man is born,and which lasts beyond the death of the person.

    It is only a naturally corollary and evolution that the Brahmin vermin will apply the same maxim to the Indian Muslims through the contorted and contrived convolutions of the NRC – under the garb of National Security – ostensibly to satisfy Article 14 of the Constitution.In reality the Brahmin/Bania vermin does not care for the Constitution – which is the antithesis of the Vedas and the Gita and the Ramayana.

    The Hindoos did the same thing to the Sikhs.Nanak did not use the word “Khalsa”.It was the Hindoo who conned the Sikhs,to become a race of mercenaries – and a sort of a mad suicide cult – which started worshipping vulgar and naked Hindoo Gods and Goddesses.The Sikh Gurus,Ranjit Singh,Khalsa Empire and Sikhism,were all destroyed due to the spiritual corruption by the Hindoos.Whoever supported the Hindoos was destroyed – that is the record of history (From the Sakas to the Huns/Mongols and the Mughals) and also recorded by Beruni.

    Now it is the turn of the Indian Muslims – it is they who voted for the BJP – just like Solomon who broke the Oral law and specific injunctions by Allah.Now it their turn to face doom.If a follower of Isaac or Ishmael cannot recognise Evil and explicitly supports Iblis or Evil – then it is clear than the man has been forsaken by Allah – and, in the opinion of this author,deserves doom.

    An “Indian” Muslim is not a Muslim who follows the Oral Law as re-revealed to the Prophet.To live as an “Indian” Muslim is a spiritual curse – which would definitely,not lead to paradise.

    The Hindoos of Pakistan and Afghanistan

    Not even 0.1% of the Pakistani and Afghan Hindoos will seek refuge in Hindoosthan.And those that are in Hindoosthan will realise very soon that they have no DNA link with Indians.

    They will cohabit and marry with their own and eventually shift to USA/EU – just like the Iraqi Shias in India,who only marry among their own.

    The Hindoos of Bangladesh

    Bangladesh has Gas.North East India has nothing.In the next 10 years,Indians will become economic refugees in Bangladesh – and many parts of North East India,will voluntarily secede from the Indian Union.In addition,like in Lanka,when a new political entity in Dhaka,kicks out the BJP and the Indian State and the PRC and PLA come in,the entire North East will be supplied from Bangladesh,at 20-35% cheaper items – for all purchases made by the North East Indians.They will be glad to secede from the Indian Union and form a trading block – with the PRC dam-ing the Brahmaputra,and wheeling the power right across India,to Myanmar and Dhaka.

    The Future of North East India lies in Myanmar,PRC and Bangladesh – and NOT with Eastern India or Central India

    Hindoosthan is doomed.

    Solution

    The Solution is only the partition of Hindoosthan.Partition leads to evolution of the human race – when there is no 1 race,in a nation.PRC is one race – the Mongol and the Mongoloid.India has a million mongrelised races plagued by 2000 years of incestuous pullulation – and that is a sad historical and scientific fact and truth

    The suboptimal and retarded evolution of the Indian Mongrel races,is what is leading to the disaster of Hindoosthan,as it exists today.dindooohindoo
