The Failed Silencing Of Anti-Citizenship Law Protests In India 1


Last week Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India pushed the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) through parliament and consequently ignited nationwide protests that have often turned violent, leaving at least 20 dead according to the BBC. The CAA provides for granting of Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis, and Christians from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan, while not being extended to Rohingya Muslims persecuted in Myanmar; Shia and Ahmadiyya Muslims in Pakistan; Hazaras, Tajiks and Uzbeks in Afghanistan; Tamils in Sri Lanka; and atheists in Bangladesh. This move explicitly restricts the granting of citizenship to certain religious communities, fundamentally challenging the secular claims of the Indian constitution, specifically Article 14, which states that “The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India.”

There are two contrasting rationales behind the protests, in the North-eastern state of Assam, protesters in the city of Guwahati hit the streets fearing that the new law will encourage Hindus from Bangladesh to settle in the region, burden resources as well as threaten their language, culture, and tradition. The second concern focuses on what seems to be Prime Minister Modi’s agenda to marginalize India’s 200 million Muslims, provoking widespread fears among Indian Muslims of being targeted and harassed by the Hindu nationalist government. In response, some regions in India have imposed an emergency law that prohibits large gatherings after clashes between demonstrators and police. Additionally, India has utilized the authoritarian tactic of shutting down the internet, further playing into the narrative that Modi is tightening his grip on India.

Thousands of people have been marching daily since December 12 to demand that the Citizenship Amendment Act is revoked, notably at Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) and Uttar Pradesh state’s Aligarh Muslim University (AMU). This is a direct response to two almost simultaneous attacks that occurred on the campuses, police in riot gear fired tear gas shells and launched a baton charge on the protesting students. More than 100 students were wounded in the police action, some critically.

Their perception of the CAA is encapsulated by the words of Anupam Tiwari, a 21-year-old JMI student “India’s constitution is against any such law that discriminates on the basis religion, caste, creed or gender. This citizenship law is a clear attempt to declare Muslims as second-class citizens.” This was a catalyst for further protests and violence across India, nearly two dozen cities across India, including New Delhi, the financial hub of Mumbai, Ahmedabad in Gujarat state and Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala, have protested in solidarity. The Modi government has handled this challenge with authoritarianism, not only utilizing the previously mentioned force but also internet shutdowns. This method of control was used last year 134 times, and so far this year, 93 shutdowns have occurred, according to SFLC.IN. Authorities in the Northeastern states of Assam, Meghalaya, and Tripura, as well as West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh, have cut internet service.

Regardless of how much the Indian government says that the legislation protects people fleeing religious persecution, protestors will criticize it as being anti-Muslim and violating the country’s secular constitution.

    Dear Sir,

    Context

    This is w.r.t the CAB/NRC in North East India​ and Sikkim.dindooohindoo

    As usual, this is the brainchild of Fat Pansy Humpty Dumpty – Amit Shah and Chaiwala Modi – son of a dishwasher.They both have 1 thing in common,id.est.,they are Gujaratis

    How many of these Bania vermin, have died for the Dubious Hindoo rashtra,in the wars fought by Dindoosthan.Even Shivaji used to kidnap and rape and plunder these Gujaratis (and the Shiv Sena,collects hafta from them – to date)

    The Word “Bastard” – for the Gujaratis

    Gujaratis are called Bastards,in the Mahabharata,as under:

    The Mahabharata,Book 8:Karna Parva,Section 45

    The Pancalas observe the duties enjoined in the Vedas; the Kauravas observe truth; the Matsyas and the Surasenas perform sacrifices, the Easterners follow the practices of the Shudras; the Southerners are fallen; the Vahikas are thieves; the Saurashtras are bastards.

    What does the Hindoo shastra think of Easterners ?

    The Hindoo scriptures think of “Easterners”, as devil worshippers and the lowest of the low, and as “Easterners follow the practices of the Shudras”- as stated above.

    Who are these Gujaratis ?

    These are the race born of the rapes by the Sakas,Scythians,Turks, Turkics,Greeks, Persians etc.,who discarded the raped woman and the child.The woman and the child were discarded by the Hindoos and interbred with carnal incest,over 2000 years,to mutate into the breed, that you see today.The Mahabharata calls them, a breed of “miscegnation” – id.est., born of unnatural copulation inter se with all forms of sentients.

    A race of liars,cheaters and impotenticas,who swap their wives and daughters,by advertisements in the media – and who have bankrupted the entire Indian Banking system.

    Anovirun Organum – The Ashoka Complex

    Ashoka’s mother was a harlot and he was a deformed ugly man.Ashoka’s father was born when Chanakya cut open the womb of his mother,as she was fed arsenic by Chanakya.Ashoka’s grandfather was fed arsenic for years, by Chanakaya, to make him immune to poison – and 1 day, his wife drank the arsenic. So the dementia of the arsenic ran in the blood and DNA of Ashoka – and he became a savage dement – and the rest is history.Like his grandfather,this fool also became a mendicant,and died a loon

    Modi is of the same harlot pedigree with an unknown father and a harlot of a mother,plagued by the history of the rapes of his ancestors – which was their true worth.These sons of harlots are plagued by the rapes of their ancestors and know that they are not “Indians”.There are many such instances in history. Madhavacharya called Adi Shankara, a son of a harlot, as his father was unknown – and so Ade Shankara,compiled his compendium on Hindooism,to discard women and dalits,in status beneath dogs and pigs.Amit Shah is not worthy of a mention as the “Shah” breed is a pedigree of pure miscegnation

    Overtime,these Gujaratis,Palanpur Jains etc.,have convinced themselves that they are of the Lost Tribes of Israel (with the look of wonder woman – Gal Gadot)

    Hence,they dilute and hide their hate and shame – by creating unworthy enemies and then destroying them,for their insane satisfaction and the joy of the 2-300 million of their brigands,who are of the same intellectual pedigree,as the Gujaratis

    The “Indian” Muslim

    The “Indian” Muslim,who states that Rama was an Imam,Shiva was son of Adam,That Adam was sent to India,That Rama temple should be built and who pray to Rama and Ganesh – deserve doom and death (Just like the Mongols who eradicated Baghdad and its idolatory -inspired from Hindoo evil)

    The Gita allows the discrimination of Dalits and lower castes – as a Oral law made by Krishna – and allows their killing (like when Rama killed Sambuka).What hope is there for the Indian Muslims ? What is Article 14 and 15 ? These are meaningless and bogus ideals copied from the US/UK/EU Constitution – by the venerable Ambedkar,who had no other option.Ambedkar almost converted to Islam and said not 1 word, against the Marwari/Bania vermin,since a Bania sponsored his education in London

    The Gita Justifies and rationalises Caste

    It is far better to perform one’s svadharma (prescribed duties), even though faultily, than another’s duties perfectly. Destruction in the course of performing one’s own duty is better than engaging in another’s duties, for to follow another’s path is dangerous.” – Bhagavad-Gita 3:35.

    According to the three modes of material nature (goodness, passion, ignorance) and the work associated with them, the four divisions of human society (Brahmin/KsHatriya/Vaisya/Sudra) are created by Me .And although I am the creator of this system, you should know that I am yet the nondoer, being unchangeable.” — Bhagavad-Gita 4:13.

    The Solution

    The Solution is “only partition”,for the evolution of the Human Race.Easterners were never a part of Hindooism, and there was never a Bharat or Hindoosthan

    There was 1 Bharat, whose father Dushyant called his mother a prostitute, and his son a bastard – and Bharat, had 7 sons from 3 wives,and not 1 looked like Bharat (The Story of Modi,Amit Shah,Ade Shankara,Ashoka………)

    There was another Bania,Rama Gupta – who handed over his wife to the Sakas,to save his life and gold.This bania,later lost both and his wife.

    Sakas = Pakistanis.

    Babar and his divine army just read the history of Rama Gupta – and the rest was more of the same history

    Dindoosthan is ruled by Bania vermin and Kshatriya rats.The End is Nigh

    The Easterners do not deserve to die for these Bania/Brahmin vermin and Kshatriya trash.Arunachal is Han and the rest is of Southern Tibetean origin – and it was a Tibetan who tortured and killed Zorawar Singh.The 1st Ahom King – the greatest ever – was a Chinese .Tripura is named after the 3 sons of a DEMON , and the state is stated to have been destroyed by Shiva , and the Triipurans are expected to be proud Hindus and Indians

    The Chinese Yueh Chi Tribe conquered and defeated the Dindooo Hindoos 2000 years ago.This tribe was kicked out of PRC then by the ruling kings.The Arunachalese are pure Chinese DNA of the elite PRC tribes.What is common between them and the Indian Mongrels ?

    It is the end of India – a dubious aberration of a fart of farcical history
