Most reports on human rights which are produced in India exclude a large percentage of the violations occurring in the country on the mistaken premise that rights violations in India can only take place against “minorities”.
To rectify this key omission – of discrimination against and persecution of Hindus in India and to provide a corrective to the one-sided reporting by international organisations, IndiaFacts is bringing out a comprehensive report on human rights violations against the majority community of Hindus in India.
The IndiaFacts Hindu Human Rights Report 2017, prepared by Mayank Patel and edited by Nithin Sridhar and Sankrant Sanu, documents both systematic and episodic violations of human rights, including the sanctioned discrimination against Hindus by the state.
The report focuses largely on incidents from 2015 and 2016 with some other select incidents added in certain cases for historical context.
The report will be officially launched on Saturday, 19 August, in New Delhi at 4.30pm. It will be released by the authors of the book The Majority Report and retired Indian Police Service officers Ram K Ohri and J P Sharma.
Guest Speaker: ICSSR Maulana Azad National Professor and founder-editor of ‘Manushi’ journal, Madhu Kishwar
When: Saturday, 19 August 2017, 4.30-6.00pm
