Chief Minister Adityanath banned mobile phones in schools, colleges and universities in UP with immediate effect. It is a blanket ban covering students, teachers and other staff of educational institutions. This is Raebareli jail :)

Thousands including children are detained in Kashmir. The govt provides no reasons or explanation to the court! A communication lockdown is imposed leading to many deaths. Govt says it will not show orders to the petitioners in court! Court keeps adjourning cases.Banana republic?

BJP promises Bharat Ratna for Savarkar who coined the divisive & communal Hindutva ideology. During his incarceration in Andaman’s notorious Cellular Jail, he presented not one but two petitions of clemency, pledging his loyalty to the British government

भारत के बेरोज़गार युवाओं को सूचित किया जाता है कि नौकरी के मुद्दे पर सरकार से कोई सवाल न पूछें। युवाओं को ‘नौकरी’ देने का इन्होंने ठेका नहीं ले रखा रखा है। इनके पास और भी बड़े बड़े काम है। आप अपने रोज़गार का इंतज़ाम स्वयं करें और सरकार को डिस्टर्ब न करें।

Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee spent 2 weeks in Tihar Jail as a JNU student for a protest. In today's age of Modi/Shah he would surely be branded an Urban Naxal!

"India, the world’s largest democracy, is also among the biggest surveillance states. The country ranks behind only Russia and China when it comes to surveilling citizens". Remember Orwell's 1984. Big brother is watching you!

An Uttar Pradesh headmaster has been suspended for making students sing Iqbal poem 'Lab Pe Aati Hai Dua. " Not just is this absolutely abominable, what pray are you going to do about Saare Jahan Se Acha, also written by Iqbal. Remove it from all our schools? Suspend everyone?

Replying to @TheDeshBhakt
I don't understand why this is being shared. This is actually an honest bit of confession....where it's clearly being said that Times Now is not a media channel. How much more clarity do we want?🙄

I can't believe this is on a channel run by that I have known, a decent man with liberal outlook and secular conviction. It's not the power of evil but the weakness of good that destroys humanity.

On a normal day one would have said that this is a fake image meant to defame ....But such openly brazen headlines & shows have been run by chatukars like for a long time now. The only thing fake now is 's commitment to basic journalistic decency.

The Hindu edit today on Justice Arun Mishra's refusal to recuse from a bench to decide the correctness of his own judgement on the Land acquisition law. "There is a compelling case for Justice Mishra to withdraw from the land acquisition case"

The tragic murder of a family over a personal financial dispute in Murshidabad, West Bengal was politicised by the BJP and communalised on social media. Mainstream media played a large role in giving credence to the unverified claims. |

“How many other judges are being spied on? Isn’t it somewhat unusual and frightening that judges, expected to render judgment without fear or favour, are subject to surveillance by the IB?” - Justice Madan Lokur Very worrying

The Nirma washing factory has a new entrant! Former Maha CM, once called the epitome of political corruption in the state by the BJP, has formally joined the party! Good luck to a party with a difference!

We now live in a country where social activists are in jail for years, students are demonised, media crushed, judges being spied upon and govt agencies are behaving like private armies of a political party. Our institutions have turned against the citizens. Congratulations India!

Apropos Justice Lokur's fine piece. The debate over misuse of IB and setting it up as arbiter of judicial appointments is an old concern. Here is concern in 2014. Some judgement, please | The Indian Express | Page 99 via
