SAN JOSE, California, USA—On July 16, Sikh activists joined protests to express outrage against the lynchings of minorities in India.
The protest was organized by The Alliance for Justice and Accountability (AJA) in San Jose, as ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi was elected, the killing of minorities via mobs have skyrocketed.
Along with Sikh Activists, several other groups joined the protests, including the Multifaith Voices for Peace and Justice. A similar protest is scheduled to take place in New York on July 23.
Protesters held banners against the killings of minority communities, especially Muslims and Dalits in India.
Sandeep Singh, a Sikh activist from the Central Valley said, “Today, we have gathered in San Jose against the RSS who have carried out the killings of innocent people, including the Dalits, Muslims and Christians in India.”
“It is a need of the hour to expose the reality of India, which displays itself as a secular nation, but continues to oppress minorities,” he said.
Other protesters held signs such as “India – Hostage to Hindutva?” and “Beef Ban is Cultural Fascism”.
