Tejasvi Surya, the Bengaluru South MP, finds an unusual communal twist to the anti-CAA protests.
Let us make this absolutely clear.
There is nothing anti-Muslim in the CAA.
But the anti-CAA protests are all anti-Hindu. https://t.co/2N5gr8UgUa

BJP’s Amit Malviya finds evidence to support UP Police’s claims that the anti-CAA protests were pro-Pakistan.
Since this is a season of pulling out old videos, here is one from Lucknow where anti-CAA protestors can be seen raising ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans… Damn! Someone needs to have a samvaad with them and ask them to carry tricolour and Bapu’s picture for the cameras next time… pic.twitter.com/Lvg7sj2G9Z

Meanwhile, UP Police threatens miscreants who ‘vandalised’ its Wikipedia page with action.
UP police wikipedia page was vandalized briefly, but we were able to undo the defacement. We value the Wiki principles of sharing of information, but will take all steps-including identifying & acting against those responsible- to prevent such vandalism.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s office has a hashtag that makes great claims.
नागरिकता (संशोधन) कानून 2019 को लेकर हिंसा पर उतारू दिग्भ्रमित लोगों से अब वसूली की कार्रवाई हो रही है।
मुख्यमंत्री श्री @myogiadityanath जी का यह निर्णय अनुकरणीय है और उपद्रवियों पर यह कार्रवाई देश में अप्रतिम मिसाल बनेगी।
वसूली तो होकर रहेगी।

Film director Anubhav Sinha warns us against TV news debates’ fake drama.
Just want you to know that a LOT OF News Channels on their panels have PAID right winger Hindus and Muslims both. Their job is to just sound ridiculous. They get Tilaks and skull caps in studios.
