Operation Genocide by Hindu Religious Leaders



Genocide experts and US State Department officials warn of an imminent genocide of Muslims and other minorities in four Indian states, Uttar Pardesh, Uttrakhand, Tripur, and Assam, if the international community does not restrain the Hindu nationalist led Modi government. Speaking at a webinar organized by the US-based Justice for all held on January 9, 2022, on Save India from Fascism, Dr. Gregory H. Stanton urged listeners to act before it was too late. Standon is a former Research Professor in Genocide Studies and Prevention at George Mason University in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States, and is best known for his work in genocide studies. He is the founder and President of Genocide Watch,[ the founder and director of the Cambodian Genocide Project, and the Chair of the Alliance Against Genocide. From 2007 to 2009, he was the International Association of Genocide Scholars president.

Justice for All focuses on the rising trend of Islamophobia worldwide. Explaining the reasons for the Webinar, Imam Malik Mujahid said that documentation, mobilization, and grassroots actions were keys to responding to the impending genocide of Muslims by Hindu religious leaders in India. Mujahid Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid is the founder of Justice For All and one of the 500 Most Influential Muslims in the world eight times in a row. He is Chair Emeritus of the Parliament of the World's Religions.

In her remarks, Nadine Maenza, commissioner of USCIRF, expressed her deep concerns over the persecution of Christians and minorities in India and promised to issue reports on the ground reality in India. Nadine is a noted speaker, writer, and policy expert with more than two decades of experience advocating for working families and a champion for international religious freedom.

Nadine is also the President of Patriot Voices, where she provides her expertise to shape the organization's particular emphasis on public policies that support working families. Drawing on her extensive network and coalition-building experiences, she has helped build unique coalitions on issues such as paid family leave, health care, tax reform, and international religious freedom.

Zahir Adil, a Boston-based director of Save India from Fascism Project, urged Hindus and other religious groups to come forward to defeat forces calling for Muslim genocide in India.

Hena Zuberi, the Director of Justice For All, who oversees Justice For All's campaigns, urged the audience to join advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill to stop the Rohingya, Muslim Indian, and Uyghur genocide. She hosts the Justice For All Now Show, a talk show on Peace and Justice.

Thousands of people from across the globe participated in the Webinar. The pro-genocide groups tried to disrupt the Webinar several times through their IT cell in India and the US by hacking the system but failed. They were keen to get hold of the participants' internet ID list to harass them later. However, the firewalls around the Webinar prevented them from getting into success. IT experts say that Hindu fascist supporters in Google, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube might have contributed to the increased efforts to disrupt the Webinar. Among Hindu Americans, many individuals, Temples, and organizations owe their allegiance to the unwritten constitution of RSS and the BJP and regularly fund militant groups and religious leaders in India.

The Webinar was in response to the policies of the Modi government and the recent Hindu religious conferences calling for a genocide of Muslims in India. Hindu priests have given a target of killing a minimum of two million Muslims and have pledged millions of dollars to the executioners of the killing. Experts believe that Hindu Americans may finance the genocide in India through their financial network of laundering US dollars to India. One hundred US dollars are equivalent to 7,500 Indian Rupees.

During his presentation, Dr. Stenton questioned the media policy of using ethnic cleansing over genocide. What is happening in India is the final stage before launching a full-scale genocide led by mobs under the government's protection. The involvement of India's Prime Minister Modi in the Gujarat genocide in 2002 offers a model to Hindu mobs to repeat the murders, he explained.

All the panelists urged the audience to actively stand for the persecuted minorities in India and petition Congress to defend human rights.
