Following an assault by cow vigilantes, three Muslim men from Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad district lost their livelihood and their hopes for ever getting justice.

05 Apr 2023  |  TwoCircles.net
The article by Naila Khan for TwoCircles.net covers the story of Haji Aslam Qureshi and his workers, Mohammad Ashim and Mohammad Amir, who were victims of an assault by cow vigilantes in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad district. On August 23, 2018, during Eid-ul-Adha, their vehicle was stopped, they were attacked, and the vehicle was set on fire. Since then, Qureshi has been unemployed and dependent on others, while his workers have been living in fear. The article highlights the failure of the police to support the victims and the rise in bovine-related violence in Uttar Pradesh since the BJP came to power. It also mentions a similar incident involving Mohammed Shakir, another victim of cow vigilantism. The article discusses the broader context of religious violence and the targeting of Muslim beef traders in the region.

‘We are frightened’: Hate crimes against India's Christians on the rise

09 Nov 2022  |  France 24
In the context of the International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief, FRANCE 24 journalists Naila Khan and Marion Laouamen highlight the increasing hate crimes against Christians in India, particularly in Uttar Pradesh. The report suggests that the rise in violence is more pronounced in states governed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which is known for its Hindu nationalist stance. The Christian community, a minority in India, has expressed fear and concern over the growing intolerance and acts of violence directed towards them.

In India’s BJP-Ruled States, Christians Under Attack For Alleged Forced Conversions

29 Aug 2022  |  religionunplugged.com
Christians in BJP-ruled states in India are facing increased persecution, including physical attacks and vandalism, due to a rise in state anti-conversion laws. Pastor Satish Kumar and others have been targeted by Hindu nationalist groups like Bajrang Dal. The Supreme Court of India has been involved, and human rights organizations such as the United Christian Forum have documented a significant rise in violence against Christians. New laws in states like Himachal Pradesh have introduced harsher penalties for conversions, which critics like Apoorvanand Jha and A.C. Michael argue are unconstitutional and politically motivated. The BJP's stance is seen as a way to frame elections as majority versus minority and to remain in power by continuing attacks against religious minorities.

Modi’s Repeal of Farm Laws Isn’t Enough, Say Indian Farmers

19 Nov 2021  |  thediplomat.com
India's BJP government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, announced the repeal of three controversial farm laws after a year of protests and over 700 deaths. The laws had been stayed by the Supreme Court earlier in the year. Farmers, particularly from Punjab and Haryana, feared the laws would lead to exploitation by corporations like the Adani Group and the collapse of the mandi system. Despite the repeal announcement, farmers remain cautious and demand concrete action, including compensation for the families of deceased protesters and the release of those falsely booked. The protests have been largely peaceful and revolutionary, with farmers enduring harsh conditions and government resistance.
