About the Campaign
The silence has been broken. A protest initiated in June 2017 by the #NotInMyName campaign spread to 26 cities and towns across India. Thousands of Indians stood up to say NO to hatred and violence in the name of religion and caste. That was a moment of pause. Even the Prime Minister spoke up, briefly, but there has been no discernible follow up action. The lynchings and assaults on Muslims, Dalits, Adivasis and other minorities have not stopped.
Barely two weeks later on 10 July 2017 the campaign again gave a call for a citizens’ vigil at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi to mourn the killing of the seven Amarnath Yatris.
We now propose to observe 10 September 2017 as a day to categorically #SayNoToHatred!
We call for all citizens to stand together until basic minimum guarantees of peace and security are available to all.
