SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN

#whereisthelaw

Since 2015 there have been 92 recorded incidences of mob lynchings in India. In July 2018, the Supreme Court of India gave a directive to Parliament to enact a special law against mob lynching. 11 months later this has not happened…
 

One year ago in Assam our world was rocked by the brutal mob lynching of two young men. While we await justice for this case another brutal lynching just occurred in upper Assam claiming the life of a woman and her son. This simply has to stop. It is no longer a case if another mob lynching will happen, but tragically when. As such, to ensure the rule of law and the constitution is respected, we need a law against mob lynching in India.

GET INVOLVED TODAY

This issue affects us all as any one of us could become victims of mob violence. We urgently need a special law against mob lynching in all of our states in India and at the national level too. If you also believe this, get involved in the following three ways:

  1.  Sign up for the campaign and tell your friends and family about this urgent issue
