“I need a few minutes of your time today to convert despair and sadness into contentment and victory. Hindutva terrorists and supremacists who have killed tens of thousands of Muslims, Dalits, Christians, Sikhs, etc. are going to gloat in Times Square of New York City on August 5th. Instead of feeling sadness or despair we must use this opportunity to educate fellow Americans, especially the politicians and the advertisement agencies, demanding that these ads be dropped. Even if these advertisements are not dropped the overconfident act of Hindutva goons gives us an opportunity to educate influential Americans about the bloody history and bloodier aims of the RSS and it’s fronts like the VHP and BajrangDal.
RSS is trying to make August 5 a holiday for its brainwashed and bloodthirsty followers. It is the day it started its most recent persecution and operation of Kashmiris last year.
It is likely that it will take more steps on August 5th in coming years to destroy the secular constitution and rule of law in India
This nationwide coalition of Muslim Organization for the Babri Masjid which includes Indian Minorities Advocacy Network- ImanNet, Justice for All, Coalition of Americans for Pluralism in India CAPI,North American Indian Muslim Association NAIMA, Islamic Circle of North America -Social Justice ICNASJ and The International Society for Peace and Justice.Demand that they drop religious ads by American Indian Public Relations Committee who are glossing over the destruction of the historic Babri Mosque by Hindutva supremacists. Furthermore these supporters of Nazi-like ideology are committing a fraud by calling themselves American Indians which is a term for Native Americans .
