The world must stop Hindutva fascism in India – Ajit Sahi

Ajit Shai addressing ICNA-MAS Convention

By Syed Ali Mujtaba

Meet Ajit Sahi a veteran journalist, and civil rights activist who works as an Advocacy Director at the Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC) and is currently based in the US.

Earlier Ajit worked as the executive editor of Tehelka weekly, where he was a political and investigative journalist. Apart from being a veteran journalist, Ajit is a dedicated campaigner for civil liberties, human rights, and religious freedom in India for over three decades.

Ajit Sahi recently received the first Swami Agnivesh Memorial Award for his fearless commitment to human rights and for continuing the legacy of the noble soul who fought for justice for all.

While receiving the award at the virtual event on December 18, 2021,  Sahi said, “(Swami Agnivesh) was a giant. People like him inspired hundreds of thousands in my generation and I hope that he’ll continue to inspire many more.”

The most interesting aspect of Ajit Sahi’s personality is being a Hindu; he tirelessly works for the rights of Muslims of India. He has dedicated himself to protecting the plural values of Indian society. He is rooted in the values of the Hindu faith and opposes the Hindu supremacist ideology propagated by the RSS.

Sahi had testified before the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission of the U.S. Congress and “spoken boldly about human rights violations in India.”

Recently, Ajit Shai delivered a powerful speech at ICNA-MAS Convention where he openly spoke against the RSS and its toxic ideology called Hindutva.

Here is his speech that gives a glimpse of his commitment to be the voice of the Indian Muslims.

  1. Indeed. The world can do that by exerting maximum pressure on Hindus so they understand the real and serious consequences of supporting terrorism. Deportation, confiscation, freezing of assets, jail time should help for starters…

    • a pure hypocrite! terrorism is done by the desert cults/sects over many centuries on India and now tries to paint cunnigly the Victim as aggressor (just because the Victim [Hindus] are getting awakened and questioning all atrocities done on them)

    • We need more people like Ajit Sahi who are the voice of the Muslim suffering in India.Great human being.No matter who is oppressed it is wrong and unacceptable.

  2. The world must stop the left, liberal libarandoo brigade that has no contribution to the nation building. Such lamentors should not exist in Indai.
