Urging them to demonstrate their anger against, India, its leadership and armed forces in such way that the world must admit and admire their ‘hate India’ sentiments over the issue of Kashmir, Khalistan and other communities who are demanding and struggling for the basic rights in India.
“India is a oppressor, brutal and aggressor country that believe in ‘shamocracy; and not democracy. This demonstration should be an example for India and for all those countries which are suppressing and killing innocent people”, he told them.

Lord Ahmed formed a campaign group to expose what he called the ‘fascist agenda of India’s Hindutva project’, during the forthcoming visit to the UK of Indian PM Modi.
The ‘Minorities Against Modi’ grouping will finalise its plans at a wider coalition-building meeting in Slough on 24 March 2018, and decided to launch the campaign in London on 15th April with a prominent public event.

“The campaign will raise issues of genocide and other anti minority abuses in India, as well as the forcible denial of self determination in Indian controlled Kashmir, Punjab and other national homelands. Commonwealth leaders, British parliamentarians and the wider public will be apprised of the dangers of the Hindutva project to innocent civilian populations as well as to international peace and security”, Lord Ahmed told ‘The Nation’.
Christians, Dalits and others will be invited to join massive Sikh and Muslim diaspora communities in challenging PM Modi’s attempt to conceal from global attention his extremist BJP party mission to ‘Hinduize’ national and religious minorities.
He called on all likeminded people and organisations to join the campaign, so that the international community can be galvanized to counter the evil ideology of hate which threatens tens of millions of people. Special banners, leaflets, shirts and umbrellas are being prepared for the demonstration. Coaches to bring people from various cities to London are being arranged. All participants will wear yellow T-shirts painted with ‘Freedom for Kashmir’ slogan and will hold yellow umbrellas with same slogan during the demonstration. “It would be eye-catching scene like a sea of protestors with clad of yellow umbrellas”, Lord Ahmed said.
