India celebrated its 71st republic day on 26th January 2020. It is the day on which our constitution came into effect. The design and framework of the constitution took 2 years 11 months and 18 days. There were more than 350 top personalities of that time who were engaged in designing the Indian constitution.
The constitution-makers were Rajendra Prasad, Alladi Krishnaswami Ayyar, B. Pattabhi Sitaramayya, K.M. Munsi, Vallabhbhai Patel, H.C. Mookherjee, J.B. Kripalani. B.R. Ambedkar and many others who dedicated their time and effort and had a vision for the nation. The wonderful preamble which highlights the fundamental values and guiding principle of the constitution starts with the golden sentence “WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA….”.

The nation is dealing with a mass movement from the past 2 months. The reason behind this movement is no more a matter to know. This movement cares about the constitution given by people like Ambedkar and Prasad. The game on the constitution that the ruling party is playing is killing the souls of great constitutions’ makers. We have snollygoster politicians in our political system. They are playing the dividing politics which is unconstitutional and that is the reason, their decisions either it is triple talaq, Abrogation of article 370, CAA, etc. have been challenged in the court claiming unconstitutional.
The current law (CAA) has provoked the patriotism inside the countrymen. Today not only youngsters but also the people who are in the old stage of their life are part of this nationwide protest/movement. The lawyers, students, professors, daily wage workers are the integral role player of this movement. It is said behind every success there is a woman. At this current scenario of the fight between fascism and libertarian democracy, women are the real warriors.
We can have a hope of positivity from these legendary women. It shows the character when any CM of the state says ill especially about women. People with such a mindset should be beyond the four walls of the prison but it’s the age of fascism where accused of heinous cases are the CM and HM (Source: ScoopWhoop).
This republic day will be remembered as a remarkable day when your children will know about the peoples’ protest against discriminatory laws of the government. Be it Jamia Millia Islamia, Aligarh Muslim University, IIT & NIIT Bangalore, AIIMS, Colleges of Delhi University, Shaheen Bagh(Delhi), or many other shaheen baghs of the country where people have taken oaths by reciting the preamble to the constitution is something incomparable to the nation.
The nationalists of Jamia Millia Islamia gathered at university and took a historic pledge in the severe cold night to safeguard the constitution. This pledge ceremony is organized by almost of the institutions in the country. The different videos, images of mass gatherings from the entire nation are the shreds of evidence, representing that the government can’t frame the rules or laws beyond the constitution. This republic day has energized this movement and it will be continuing till the wins of libertarian democracy over fascism.
Sharjeel Imam, a Ph.D. student from Jawaharlal Nehru University. A week back he delivered speeches against the unconstitutional laws and the dirty ideology of the government. He spoke on Assam and the disturbing life of the Assamese. During his speech, he said to cut Assam from the states of India so the government can come to attention and will listen to the people and their problems. He was speaking in public with zero wrong intentions but the lapdog media interpreted his speeches very wrongly.

Also, BJP spoke persons interpreted Sharjeel quite wrongly and tried to say that “Sharjeel is the mastermind behind Shaheen bagh protest and he is the only one who is leading the protestors” which is untrue. The reality is not a single individual is leading there and the real protestors are women. I believe the statements of Sharjeel were partially controversial and are condemnable but it is interpreted falsely more. However, a sedition charge has been registered by the Assam government in against of Sharjeel Imam.
My request to the people who are having organized protest like Shaheen Bagh and Jamia Millia Islamia, kindly keep eyes on the stages and do not let any take the advantage from your stages. This is because they will be representing you(protest organizers) not themselves. So must take care of this. The media has lost its creditability and have become blind in considering the value between watchdog and lapdog.
