Database: Hate crimes against Muslims in India- 2021

Hate crimes against Muslims in India have exploded since the BJP led  government came to power in 2014. Around 85% of perpetrators are alleged to have been associated either with the BJP or its sister Hindu organizations. In some cases, law enforcement agencies have been either indifferent or hostile to the victims.

The purpose of this page is to track and document all hate crimes carried out against India’s 200 million Muslims, with the objective of catching all data regarding date, location, motive, victim, perpetrator and subsequent legal action, which will then be later populated into a searchable and analytical database, and then made available as a resource tool for journalists, academics and human rights activists.

Gregory Stanton, who founded the Genocide Watch group, has warned of a possible genocide against Muslims in India.
