Today #AadhaarVerdict was a massive blow to National Security & curbing black money as i said on Sept 5th

Supreme Court in his wisdom created a massive loophole for #UrbanNaxals, Crooks and Hawala Operators

This short thread will explain how

It's against @narendramodi govt

As i said on Sept 5th, 2018. Today's #AadhaarVerdict is projected by Paid Media, Presstitutes and #UrbanNaxals as @narendramodi govt defeat.

It already started ... if you notice on few channels

The whole verdict was well planned and it is definitely not in National interest

Phone : No AADHAR required

Now u can buy any number of SIM with any name. Most IED blast happens using the phone, all most all hawala deals are done on phone. Now it will be impossible to know which number should be tracked by security agencies

SHOCKING FACTS: Sophia tried to jump bail - escape?
1) She submitted old expired passport, instead of current one?
Serious security breach @narendramodi @HMOIndia @AmitShah @PiyushGoyal @arunjaitley @nsitharaman @PMOIndia…
2) So 'student’ tried to give EXPIRED passport during investigation on some flimsy pretext. Science students can give expired passports? Now she has to appear on 8th September with active passport @narendramodi @HMOIndia @AmitShah @PiyushGoyal @arunjaitley @nsitharaman @PMOIndia
3) So, at airport itself, she had only expired passport. Was it along with active passport? Here @CISFHQrs need answer how was she let inside Chennai Airport with expired passport as ID proof? Did she show any other ID? @narendramodi @HMOIndia @PMOIndia…

According to research by Nobel Prize winners Kahneman and Tversky, humans are intuitively not good statisticians. I will now describe the following characteristics of a person to you. Your task is to tell me the profession of that person from 2 choices. Sahil is very shy 1/n
and withdrawn , invariably helpful but with very little interest in people or in the world of reality. A meek and tidy soul, he has a need for order and structure, and a passion for detail.” Is Sahil more likely to be a librarian or a farmer?

The most common reply to the 2/n
question is that Sahil is more likely to be a librarian than a farmer. This is surely because Sahil resembles a librarian more than a farmer, and associative
memory quickly creates a picture of Steve in our minds that is very librarian-like. One thing which completely slips 3/n

@amishra77 @virsanghvi This was the strategy of the outliers for a long time:
1) Moghuls became Indians and Indians became Kafirs
2) Nehru-Khan-Maino became Gandhi and Indians became fools
3)Muslims became Kashmiris and #KashmiriPandits became refugees

@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 4) Bangladeshis became #Bengalis and Bengalis couldn't celebrate #DurgaPuja in soon to be #WestBangladesh
5) Those who are intolerant of #Hindus became #Secular and the real seculars became #Sanghi terrorists
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 6) The #Maoists and #UrbanNaxals became Intellectuals and the Intellectuals became #Bakhts
7) Terrorists became 'poor-sons-of-headmasters' who killed/beheaded army men and the army became human rights violators who used pellet guns on these peaceful terrorists. @adgpi

From many days for now, I am observing RW tweeples are very much a diverse lot. In this thread I may target some aspects which may not go well with many of us. I may attract a tag:’Andh Bhakt’, I am okay with it.
If we take a look at history of Hindu consolidation, it happened during RJB movement. Yes, it was a political breakthrough for BJP. It gave hope to Hindus and along with it came a set expectations. Sometimes followers of this ideology were too far from reality.
When ABV was in power he was in the mercy of coalition partners. People say, why can’t @narendramodi go ordinance path? Certainly there are issues. If today’s government goes that way, next UPA government may declare the site to be masjid through same ordinance path. Then?

Honourable?? Milords.
Col Purohit was arrested without evidence, labelled terrorist and tortured in jail for 9 years. Whole nation knows Chidambaram, Digvijay and Madame coined saffron terror narrative to malign the Hindus.
We are the ONLY country in the world which says our own countrymen are responsible for the blasts in our country. Have you heard Col Purohit's wife speak about the trauma her family went through all these years?? It's so heart wrenching.
It fills every Indian with anger and utter indignation for those responsible for framing him. We were appalled to know that in all probability, he would have been handed over to Pakistan.😱😱

Who are Urban Naxals?
For any cause, there are 4 main paths that can be taken to seek justice and to assert one's rights.
3 of these paths are constitutional. The 4th is not.
@vivekagnihotri club those following constitutional path with the unconstitutional ones
Path 1: satyagraha, civil movement's, protests, civil disobedience etc.

E.g. Gandhi's salt satyagraha.

Path 2: judicial activism. Here One approaches the courts asserting ones rights and seeking Justice.

E.g. Gandhi's champaran satyagraha. @pbhushan1's PIL's etc.

Yesterday had shared about #UrbanNaxals in Andhra Pradesh, and how for 2 decades my home state, had to grapple with this problem. Today I look at another aspect, how Andhra Pradesh was succesful in combating Naxalism at multiple levels.
Andhra Pradesh strategy against Naxalism was a mix of carrot and stick. While on the one hand we had the regular police encounters, it was backed up by an excellent intelligence network. The carrot on the other hand was the social welfare schemes and development works.
A brief history of Naxals in Andhra Pradesh, roughly speaking there were 3 phases, one between 1969-74, one of the bloodiest ones, another from 1980 to 1990 and the final phase from 1990 end to mid 2000s, that was the turning point basically.

Much before #UrbanNaxals became a buzzword, we in erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh , actually experienced. From 80s to mid 2000s , AP had a long running battle with Naxals, lost some of our best cops ( Umesh Chandra, Vyas) , political leaders, ordinary people to this.
It was a two front battle, on one hand the regular encounters between the cops and Naxals. On the other hand the #UrbanNaxals in Telugu media, cinema, academia, campuses. It was a living reality for us.
Telugu media had it's own share of #UrbanNaxals , Varavara Rao one of the leading lights. There were others like Balagopal too. Some magazines and newspapers supported them in a guarded manner , some were openly in support of the Naxals.

Any surprise @RahulGandhi is supporting #UrbanNaxals? Cong has openly supported Naxals in the past. Before 2004 Andhra Assembly polls, Cong took support of Naxals to dethrone TDP. After coming to power in Andhra Pradesh on 11 May, Congress lifted ban on Naxals on 22 July 2004(1)
After Cong Govt of Andhra Pradesh lifted ban on them on 22 July 2004, Naxals did a massive show of strength in Hyderabad on 30 September 2004.… The ban was lifted, of course, in lieu of support to Congress given by Naxals before the elections. (2)
But on 17 August 2005 the ban on Naxals had to be re-imposed in Andhra Pradesh after 254 deaths in 2005 from January to 17 August-130 civilians,16 policemen & 108 Naxals.… Opportunism of Congress for coming to power in 2004 resulted in 146+ lives lost. (3)

#UrbanNaxals - A Thread
Earlier today, Human rights activist and writers, Sudha Bharadwaj, Arun Ferreira, Vernon Gonsalves, Gautam Navlakha, Varavara Rao were arrested. They have all been called “#urban Naxal”, a label that is now used even by the Pune Police to "justify" these arrests.
"#UrbanNaxal " is misnomer at best, and a deeply toxic, flawed analytical category that can in practice include any citizen who disagrees with the right-wing status quo.

ABVP invites Chief Ministers of three North-Eastern states to address a post-dinner public meeting at #JNU. I hope leftists don’t disturb the meeting as they often do. They use any issue to shout slogans, creat ruckus & deny the students their right to interact with the guests.
Heavy crowd at the Koyna to listen to the North-East Chief Ministers. Left has mobilised its usual goons to ‘protest’ ie to disrupt the meeting using standard violent tactics they always deploy. Heavy security too. #JNU
Leftist goons blocking the way. Not allowing NE Chief Ministers to enter the venue. Heavy sloganeering from both sides. #JNU

"A key part of Nazi ideology was to define the enemy and those who posed a threat to the so-called “Aryan” race.". In India too, sangh parivar is busy with propaganda defining the enemy~non Hindus, opponents of hindutva & supporters of secular diverse India.
"The use of  propaganda and laws to define the enemy as a cohesive group was a key factor in achieving the goals of the Nazi regime" #NewIndia we see same type of propaganda against Muslims&Christians..religious identity used to attack Indian citizens…
"Nazi propaganda was essential in promoting the myth of the “national community” and identifying who should be excluded."
Sangh Parivar propaganda is similar.hindi Hindu Hindustan agenda. Muslims,Christians r outsiders acc to RSS..even though they are all 100%native to the land.

Mahesh Raut was a classmate in our Community Org&Development Practice(CODP) specialisation &we did fieldwork in Bikaner. Mahesh hd multiple personalities; a friendly chap in classroom, a jhola and naarebaazi activist on the street and what I came to know later-a naxal sympathiser
Mahesh had a politician's aura about him. He could just stand and deliver a speech anywhere. I thought he would become a yuva neta someday and uplift the naxal hit Gadchiroli district out of poverty and violence.
Instead in 2014 when he was a Prime Minister's Rural Dev Fellow(PMRDF) he was in news along with a junior from tiss, Harshali Potdar, who were both questioned when two arrested Naxals revealed that Raut and Potdar were to go and meet senior naxal leaders.

"Read the book. Because some people don't want you to." - @rahulroushan

Just arrived, and now reading, @vivekagnihotri's #UrbanNaxals. Promises to be as good as his film on the same theme. Lovely foreword by @MakrandParanspe, and fabulous production @GarudaPrakashan & @sankrant.
At @vivekagnihotri's #UrbanNaxals book launch.

Vivek: I want to confess something to all of you today: I was once an avowed Marxist and an Urban Naxal. I have burnt buses and even been jailed. But I saw the light.
Coming soon, my interview of @vivekagnihotri in @SwarajyaMag - on his film, his new book; on his political choices; on the phenomena of #UrbanNaxals, and whether the latter can ever reform, or surrender like the #FieldNaxals.
