CAA: This Instagram Account Helps You Counter Anti-Muslim WhatsApp Forwards


Active member
Lakhs of Indians and even a German (who was then deported) have taken to the streets to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the last two weeks. As the protests rage on in the face of unspeakable police brutality in UP, the north east and parts of Delhi, people are bolstering this massive mobilisation in unique ways through Instagram and improbably, WhatsApp.

While people (in places where the Indian government hasn’t shut the internet down) are using Instagram for everything from sharing protest and policemen’s locations to protest art to legal and mental health resources, one handle, @sodonechilling, has decided to take this ideological fight to the heart of casual bigotry in India – Whatsapp.

Read about how young Indians are using Instagram to organise against the CAA and NRC here.

Adding, “We’ve seen an absolutely bizarre Chanakya forward about “anti-nationals” met with an equally bizarre Chanakya forward (ours) about government and dissent.”

The messages aren’t meant to replace the actual act of turning up in the streets and protesting, instead they support the ideas that are fuelling these protests and make it easier to spread outside the socio-economic echo chambers we’re prone to.
