CONGRESSIONAL BRIEFING: Anti-Minority Violence in Haryana & Manipur
We are hosting a Congressional Briefing on anti-minority violence in Haryana and Manipur in India. This briefing aims to shed light on the violence that has transpired in these regions in recent months, as well as the brutal backlash of the BJP government. Between Manipur and Haryana, nearly 200 people have been killed, and thousands more have been displaced, with many having their homes and businesses demolished. These outbursts of violence have been historic and severe, indicating further religious persecution on the horizon.
Please join us to help foster dialogue on this critical and timely issue and learn how your office can participate in the global solution against anti-minority violence.
