INDIA:   VOLUNTEER by clicking here

The Indian state of Karnataka has passed a directive asking government schools and colleges to disallow hijab. While Sikh students can wear their turbans, and Hindus can wear religious symbols, the directive is squarely at Muslim girls. They have been allowed until recently to wear the hijab and attend school. India is focused under the RSS/BJP governments to ban all Muslim symbols, attires, and make it difficult for Muslims, who are the primary target as the RSS/BJP work towards their goal of a Hindu Rashtra.


Our work here must focus on the United States’ & Canada’s commitment to Religious Freedoms. In collaboration with partners and official agencies such as USCIRF, we must get the United States/Canadian administrations to take concrete steps to reverse discriminatory laws, practices and directives in India. We must also work all official channels at the United Nations for our Indian Muslim brothers & sisters.
