South Asia Solidarity Group, a coalition of various Indian organisations held protest demonstrations in London today against the Hindu extremism and rising lynching cases in India.
They marched from Tavistock Square at Mahatma Gandhi’s statue towards the Indian High Commission and condemned the rising tide of lynching of innocent citizens by Hindutva mobs and the silence of Narendra Modi’s government.
The protestors said that the increasing trend of mob lynching in India of Muslims, Christians and Dalits posed a great risk to all minorities as Modi’s administration was fully backing the lynching mobs and supported their blood-thirsty ambitions.
Those who took part in the event include Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, secularists.
Marchers carried posters of mob lynching victims and held placards in their hands condemning Modi and mob lynchings.
