The violence and hatred of the man behind the camera in #assam - something massively metaphorical there for the media age we live in.— barkha dutt (@BDUTT) September 23, 2021
Today's forceful eviction of 800 Muslim families at Dholpur, #Assam, is a sign of worse things to come under HBS. Note that they weren't illegal settlers (altho no one, legal or illegal, should be treated with such cruelty). Meaning, this is a blanket war against minorities. pic.twitter.com/eLrj5KyyBf— Angshuman Choudhury (@angshuman_ch) September 20, 2021
As hundreds of #illegal encroachers charged on the @assampolice see hw helplessly they raised their hands up and moved back. Later police fired in the air to disperse the mob and retaliated. Human rights will not see this. #SipajharEviction #Assam #Encroachment #IllegalImmigrants pic.twitter.com/6lMGf9qRnB— Anirudha Bhakat (@AnirudhaBhakat) September 23, 2021
World can be a cruel place, and that horrific things happen but this haunting representation, a horror show illustrates the human sufferings of an ongoing humanitarian crisis in #Assam. Lest we sleep through mass atrocities and succumb to inaction. pic.twitter.com/29Ng0PSoqd— NCHRO (@NCHROofficial) September 24, 2021
