Today, on the 71st anniversary of the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, a true messiah of peace, Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP) are strengthening their resolve to end the culture of hate and bigotry that threatens the socio-cultural fabric of our nation. Hate Hatao, a revolutionary new app designed to fight hate that can be used by anyone with an Android smartphone, has been launched.
 
Hate Hatao is available on Google Play from today. Download now from the link below to help build a stronger, more peaceful and united India.

In a growing atmosphere of communal hatred, bigotry, and violence, Hate Hatao will enable you to report to us instances of hate speech, threats, and hate crimes, with the appropriate evidence, such as a screenshot, video or a picture. CJP will then take this up as a complaint to authorities such as the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), the Press Council of India (PCI), the National Broadcasters Association (NBA), Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms or law enforcement agencies. CJP will also lodge FIRs and pursue the cases in court. You will then receive real-time updates on the status of your report. 
 
Incidents can be related to hate targeted against people from a particular religious community, caste, economic class, ethnicity, gender or sexuality.
 
CJP will also monitor incidents of hate and track their escalation to chart and understand how hate builds. These will be woven into their award-winning Peace Map initiative and will help predict and hopefully prevent possible outbreaks of violence that so often stem from hate. Hate Hatao is part of CJP’s Hate Watch campaign, which spreads awareness and understanding about speech that incites hate and violence against minorities and marginalised groups. The Peace Map is also integral to this campaign. 
 
From inception, Communalism Combat (Sabrang India) and Citizens for Justice and Peace, have been committed to combating hate speech, particularly since it frequently incites violence against marginalised communities. From our on-ground work through dialogue and Mohalla Committees, to winning a NASSCOM Award for our technology-driven Peace Map initiative, innovative solutions have been constantly devised here to pre-empt the outbreak of targeted violence.
