About this event
As seen recently in the calls for genocide against India’s Muslims at a “Religious Summit” in Haridwar by leaders of the Hindu nationalist movement, the situation in India is fast deteriorating. As India’s political leadership remains silent and violence escalates, India is on the brink of genocide. Held on the 20th anniversary of the horrific communal riots in Gujarat in 2002 that killed thousands and displaced hundreds of thousands of Indian Muslims, this Summit serves to commemorate, share, and look ahead. If we ignore today’s warning signs, we will have to live with the consequences for evermore. Please join us as we do our utmost to prevent genocide in India.
