  • Dear Vasundhra Raje, We want Justice, not charity.

    So the Rajasthan government finally responded to our outrage. The accused was arrested and Vasundhra Raje announced 5 lakh rupees as compensation for Afrazul's family. 

    Really now?

    No madam Vasundhra Raje, the citizens of this country don't want your charity, we want you to do your JOB, which is to deliver justice in this case, and in all other cases related to hate crimes. The citizens have already raised more than 3.5 lakh rupees in less than 72 hours. And if we keep the momentum going on this campaign, we will not only adequately provide relief to Afrazul's family, we will also be able to raise funds for a legal fund, that will be used to hire a network of top lawyers who will work on this campaign. 

    So the onus is on each one of us to share this post. We are also leaving you with this video that is fast going viral. Share it far and wide and ensure the public attention on this issue doesn't die down.

    Warm Regards

INDIA'S SHAME: Campaign for Relief and Justice for victims of hate

By now most of us have seen the chilling video of a man in red shirt and white pants killing a poor labourer from behind. He hacks him with an axe, pours petroleum on him and burns him alive. 

It's sickening to the core. Can there be anything more pathetic than that? Unfortunately, yes.

There is a very high chance that the government and the pro-govt media will do everything they can to get the murderer out of the jail, and will even get him a job, as they have done in the past. The problem is not the murderer alone, it's the system that incentivises hate attacks and extra-judicial murders. 

So many of us have been protesting against this government sponsored hate apparatus but it has all fallen on deaf years so far. We consulted a few lawyers and we were told that the only option now left is to get the Supreme Court to intervene and order a court-monitored investigation.

Yes, Justice is important. But at the moment, Mohammad Afrazul's family also needs some immediate relief. The West Bengal govt has already announced an amount of 3 Lakh rupees but we feel that is not enough, given the scale of tragedy. The unskilled labourer had gone to the field with his killer to earn some money for the wedding of the youngest of his three daughters.

We are looking to raise 50 lakh rupees for his family. Let's send out a strong message: We don't want charity from the government, we want justice. Money we can take care of ourselves.

After we reach this goal, we are also looking to raise another amount of 50 lakh rupees that will be used to build a strong legal case. Lawyers after lawyers say the same thing: It's impossible to prove anyone guilty when the investigating agencies themselves are hand in gloves with the murderers. The only way to keep murderers like Shambhulal Regar in jail is if the honourable Supreme Court is made to intervene and order a COURT-MONITORED probe into these cases. The funds will be used to undertake such legal steps necessary to ensure fair investigation and prosecution of the case. These are no ordinary cases, these communal attacks hurt the very essence of India's constitution.

Remember Junaid, the young boy lynched in a train near New Delhi? His father says they have no money to hire a lawyer. Shame on us.

These funds will be used to build a coalition of lawyers working on these hate cases. Most lawyers have been working pro-bono (for free) but as citizens it's our responsibility to offer them the financial backing they need beyond their time and expertise.

ONLY ACCEPTING FUNDS FROM INDIAN NATIONALS. WE WILL BE ASKING YOU TO PROVIDE DETAILS LIKE PAN NUMBER ETC IF YOU MAKE CONTRIBUTIONS IN DOLLARS.
