It is with growing horror that we see India openly enter fascist territory. the territory of war and might is right territory.
A hatred of Pluralism and inclusiveness.
The Indian parliament was misused by the majority BJP hindu supremacist party to pass a bill that strikes down the special status in the Indian constitution for the states of Jammu and Kashmir.
MP for Kerala and a member of the Congress Party Shashi remarks on this issue and on the human rights abuses that are taking place:
Lockdown, zero internet, imprisonment among other things.

Star Wars Saw the Attack on Democracy Coming

Excerpts from article:
Empire. Majority. New constitution. Sovereign ruler. The vocabulary of demagoguery never changes."
Towards the end of the movie, as Obi Wan and his erstwhile student, Anakin, battle it out with light sabers on the lava-filled planet of Mustafar, Anakin tells Obi Wan, “If you’re not with me, you’re my enemy.”

To which Obi Wan replies, Only a Sith Lord deals in absolutes.”
and


Joseph Goebbels, the Reich minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany, once said:

“This will always remain one of the best jokes of democracy, that it gave its deadly enemies the means by which it was destroyed.”

"More and more, we are seeing members of the ruling party showing absolutely no compunctions in using word and phrases that are dangerously close to the ones used by Emperor Palpatine – a “sovereign ruler chosen for life”, “an empire ruled by the majority”, and being “ruled by a new constitution.”

Thanks for starting this thread. It brings a sense of hope knowing that there are people praying for justice and peace worldwide. We can't give up on spreading facts to others. The Indian government is still blocking communication from Kashmir, that alone should be concerning to everyone.

"As Israel, Myanmar and India gloat in their solidarity, mutual support and friendship, one can only guess what will be the next stage in what could prove to be the final chapter of Kashmir’s bloody story since 1947 when India and Pakistan became locked in conflict over the Muslim-majority region in the northernmost part of India."

Indian gov is stifling free speech by controlling social media handles.Anyone who speaks against the official narrative is now deemed an anti-national and hounded.
Anti-India messages: Four Twitter handles blocked for ‘spreading rumours’

Centre asks Twitter to block accounts ‘spreading falsehood’

"The Centre on Monday asked microblogging website Twitter to take down several accounts on its platform posting “objectionable and malicious” content, particularly relating to Kashmir. “They are fake, aimed at presenting a wrong picture [of the Kashmir situation] to the world.” Most of these were unverified accounts and the government may also try to locate the origin/location of these accounts."

Thank you for that article:
I really like India as a country. Moreover many Muslim majority countries have Indian residents, citizens and ex-pats. I would hate to see the world go further down a path of intolerance.
These same folks would decry exclusion if it was done to them,
We need to adhere to standards of justice, fair dealing and decency for all.

Shashi Tharoor also has said this party is trying to change the constitution of India to exclude all minorities, Muslim, Christian and Dalits.
I posted this on NWO before:

and here is a speech from the MP from Hyderabad:

It is alarming that the internet is down and as a result (I am afraid)it will be much easier to commit atrocities. Troubling times ahead for many places, unfortunately. One would think, that we have all been there and done and let us move on to better, but aggression and intolerance is rearing its ugly head again.
Thank you inquistor for the article.

Right now any Indian Muslim who even dares to speak about Kashmir's freedom is becoming a target of lynching. The BJP's mob mentality has no end, its terrifying.

One more step towards global instability, very lamentable. India had such a lovely image in the minds of so many.
Countries are squandering hard earned soft power.
Global Peace and Human Security: India and Pakistan Itching for Showdown on Kashmir
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/52081.htm
Excerpt:
"Moral ideas sometimes wait upon political developments, and sometimes outrun them. The brotherhood of man is an ideal which owed its first force to political developments….The present moment is the most important and most crucial that has ever confronted mankind. Upon our collective wisdom during the next twenty years depends the question whether mankind shall be plunged into unparalleled disaster, or shall achieve a new level of happiness, security, well-being, and intelligence. I do not know which mankind will choose. There is grave reason for fear, but there is enough possibility of a good solution to make hope not irrational. And it is on this hope that we must act."

Narendra Modi is another corrupt leader, like Putin or Trump. He’s going to try to consolidate power by any means necessary. I have been watching this for a while and I’m a little worried how far it’s going to go. India has nuclear weapons, don’t they?

Not only does India have nuclear weapon but so does Pakistan and Kashmir has been a central conflict between both for decades. Tensions are high at the border and we have people protesting for Kashmiris.

There was also this indian politician who said on live TV that "they" can finally "take" the Kashmiri women and marry them and have fun as they breed white children. As someone with Kashmiri ancestry, this is sickening.

I like how this keeps saying "global community should teach Pakistan and India". Our prime minister has been asking for a peaceful resolution since last year even right now he keeps saying that this is something that should be settled with talks and not war. Only until there was an attack, did he say that we will exercise our right to defend ourselves. No one wants a peaceful solution to this more than us.

How are Kashmiris coping under lockdown? | The Stream
caption under the video:
Millions of people in Indian-administered Kashmir are living under curfew after the central government revoked an article of the constitution guaranteeing the state semi-autonomy. Thousands of troops have been sent to the Muslim-majority region to enforce government control, while telephone lines and internet connections have been blocked. Hundreds of people, from Kashmiri rights activists to professors and business leaders, have been detained by Indian authorities. A day after Kashmir’s special status was removed on August 5, India’s parliament moved swiftly to pass The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill. The new act downgraded Jammu and Kashmir from a state to a union territory, while also separating the Ladakh region as another union territory. The sweeping changes in Kashmir come three months after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won a general election in which they pledged to revoke Kashmir’s special status. But while prime minister Narendra Modi says the changes will herald a "new era" of growth in Kashmir, residents are angry that they have no voice as their rights are removed. Neighbouring Pakistan is also incensed at the move and has downgraded diplomatic and trade ties with India. What lies in store for the people of Kashmir amid the ongoing lockdown? Join the conversation.
