|Dear Sagar Media Inc,
Gauri Lankesh was murdered in front of her house. Unknown assailants shot 3 bullets into her.
She was known for her fearless journalism and she spoke out for the disadvantaged and the downtrodden.
This is not just about Gauri. Pehlu Khan was killed on a busy highway. In Una – Dalits were whipped and the attackers circulated those videos with pride.
There is a rising darkness in India.
Mobs are acting out violent crimes against people who they hate because of religion and caste. People who speak out against hate and unreason are also under attack.
And our silence is deafening.
To break our silences, to fight hate and fear, we are embarking on a Karwan e Mohabbat, a journey of solidarity, atonement and love.(www.karwanemohabbat.in)
Sign my pledge to break your silence. Show your solidarity with love, justice, equality, freedom and India’s Constitution.
Hate lynching is threatening to grow into an epidemic. Minorities and disadvantaged castes are learning to endure an intense sense of fear.
How culpable are we when our brothers and sisters are lynched and killed and we just stand by?
Sign this pledge to show our brothers and sisters who are forced to live with fear and hate that there are Indians willing to stand with them in solidarity, in the way Gauri Lankesh so courageously did.
Sign this pledge to defend the promise of India’s Constitution that we the people gave to ourselves: that this country belongs equally to all, regardless of their faith, caste, gender, language, culture and wealth.
Sign this pledge to resolve to never turn our faces away, and to speak out and fight against hate, violence, discrimination, injustice and unreason against any person.
Thank you for taking action,
