Vigil against fascism and Hindu-Supremacy in India: Resisting Modi 2.0 – By M.Ghazali Khan
At Vigil outside the Indian High Commission, in London progressive South Asians and their allies, vowed to stand with all India’s minorities and marginalised communities and individuals facing persecution, to honour the memory of all those who have lost their lives at the hands of fascist, caste supremacist Hindutva forces in India and to continue to support and amplify the voices of those who are building anti-fascist unity and solidarity in India.
Wearing Modi and Amit Shah masks, their hands red with symbolic blood. They indicted them as responsible for the ‘the epidemic of organised mob lynchings and heightened attacks on Muslims, Dalits and Adivasis, relentless assault on democratic institutions and their credibility, and the systematic persecution and even murder of dissenters’.
They vowed to continuously challenge Modi’s narrative of the Indian diaspora in the UK as a unified source of moral and material support for his fascist agenda, because ‘this is not in our name’.… In the 2014 polls Narendra Modi promised ‘development for all’, this time his campaign revolved shamelessly on hate speech, Islamophobia and warmongering. He fielded Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused in Hindutva terrorist attacks, and built her image as a new BJP icon. This is fascism and it must be fought!…
