As some of you may know, Modi is visiting NYC on Sept. 28. A protest has been planned to oppose Modi’s welcome reception. “On September 28th, by celebrating Narendra Modi, the Indian American community will disregard the memories of the thousands who were killed, raped and displaced in Gujarat in 2002 and excuse genocidal Islamophobia. The Alliance for Justice and Accountability (AJA) stand in protest and condemn the prestige falsely handed to Narendra Modi. Regardless of his political office, we demand that Narendra Modi face a courtroom and a judge for his crimes against humanity! ” We hope you can make it. SASI is a leading member of AJA. In the meantime, we have found out that there may be a video projected as an opening to reception showing portraits of Indian American families as an anthem to show journeys of diaspora. This cannot happen. We should not let our history be copied into support for a hateful ideology and its leader, Modi. As a counter to a video —we have made a alternate tumbler page where we are asking Indian families here to submit a photo with their families voicing opposition to Modi agenda. Please post photos, quoted and tell everyone you know to do the same. We need to populate this with as many photos as possible. Please post your photo and spread the word!
