@Deepsealioness If at all it happens throughout India, The best way to deal with it is to boycott. Because even if 30% people just don't show any interest in NRC, then it will be done and dusted.
Also CAB is no relief to Hindus. They will get the Citizenship after assuming that they are "illegal" immigrants.

We desperately need puppers to stay sane in an insane nation where the very idea of inexpensive quality education is being attacked by bigots.

With Trump's ongoing impeachment hearings and Netanyahu's indictment, one can see a push-back against the "populist-nationalist" phenomenon has started. But the manner seems to indicate that it is not from the grassroots but from the neoliberal elite.
Interesting times ahead.

While the origins of Hindutva in the inter-war years of the last century are less than respectable for the founders' admiration for the 3rd Reich & Fascist Italy, today’s RSS, whose political front is the current governing party BJP, is more sophisticated about how it presents itself. But the idea that Hinduism alone is indigenous remains unchanged; and by extension, only Hindus are truly native to India. 1/n

The implications are clear: minorities have a clear message that they cannot depend on the judiciary for their rights. They’ll have to find their own ways to survive as humans in this country

@Deepsealioness in this very regressive and deeply divisive times, the majority of the sensible Indian population stands by its brethren that some lumpens have tried to marginalise.

Irrespective of religion and caste.

@shahbazrk Nah! The constitution did not betray you! It still holds strong, however, those charged with defending it, practicing it did. The current gov't with its all reaching/encompassing negativity did... @Deepsealioness

The fear is real

I am worried about my parents in North India

These are some of the conversations I had today with Muslims. Breaks your heart doesn’t it? good folks reach out to your Muslim friends , show that you care , they need all the love & support today

If you see any incitement to violence, any trouble in your area, any hate speech you think needs to be addressed, call the cops. Record it for evidence. But don’t tweet it. Don’t spread it on WhatsApp or Facebook or Instagram or SMS or by word of mouth.

If you think any piece of information is unverified, don’t pass it on to others, not even in private. Don’t become a vehicle of rumourmongering. You are smarter than that.

For those who don’t know he diligently documents all lynching crimes under this fascist government, he shares videos of hate speeches by prominent politicians which is way to marginalise & dehumanise religious minorities.

If you are anti fascist follow him
