A National helpline to be launched against hate crimes

15 Jul 2019

A National helpline will be launched tomorrow, 15th July, at Press club of India, Delhi at 3.30 pm. The helpline will be launched by United Against Hate – an ongoing campaign against communalism, fascism and all other hate crimes such as hate mongering, mob lynching.




After the recent lynching of Tabrez Ansari in Jharkhand, the team of United against hate, that comprises activists, lawyers, academicians, scholars and others came up with this idea to launch a help line center at the national level to deal with hate crimes.

The toll free number will be announced tomorrow at the launch in New Delhi.

Says, Tamanna Pankaj, who is a lawyer associated with United Against Hate, on her twitter handle that “The incidents of lynchings are not spontaneous and sporadic cases of violence, but are rather systemic and carefully planned. After dealing with many such cases for almost two years we strongly feel that the response to such brutal assaults and the fight for ensuring justice need to be much more organized and systematised as well.”

The round the clock toll free number is for anyone who has witnessed a hate crime or faced a hate crime.
 
The help line centre assures: Rapid response; documentation, legal help and advocacy.

United Against hate, upon receiving the call will ensure immediate intervention of media and activists with help from the network of activists across India.

A host of different speakers from religious fraternity, lawyers, activists, academicians, Maulana Madni, Dr. Michael Williams, Malik Motasim Khan, Prof Ratanlal, Prashant Tandon, Advocates Sanjay Hegde, Fazail Ayubi, Anas Tanveer, Ehtesham Hashmi, Shreeji Bhavsar, senior journalist Urmilesh, Dr. Kafeel Khan, Ravi Nair, SHRDC, Prof Ghazala Jamil, Prof Apoorvanand will be present for the launch
