About Coalition Against Genocide

The Coalition Against Genocide includes a spectrum of organizations and individuals in the United States and Canada that have come together in response to the Gujarat genocide to demand accountability and justice.

The Coalition Against Genocide is protesting the visit of Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister of Gujarat, a state in western India, to the United States in March 2005.

Narendra Modi has been invited by the Asian American Hotel Owner's Association (AAHOA) as chief guest for the AAHOA Annual Convention and Trade Show to be held at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Florida on March 24-26, 2005. Mr. Modi is also speaking at Madison Square Garden in New York on March 20.

In Gujarat, between February 28 and March 02, 2002, under Narendra Modi's leadership, more than 2,000 people, mostly Muslims, were killed, aided and abetted by the state. In the aftermath, 200,000 people have been rendered homeless and internally displaced. Three years later, the victims of the violence still await justice and reparations. Narendra Modi and the Gujarat Government not only failed to take preventative measures against those who were planning the violence with his knowledge, but undertook a series of actions which either tacitly or explicitly condoned the genocidal violence, which included torture of children and mass rapes of women. The Government of Gujarat continues to harass and discriminate against its Christian and Muslim minority populations, tribal peoples and other marginalized groups, as well as progressive activists and intellectuals, with new policies and prejudiced application of existing laws. Under Mr. Modi's leadership, more than 2,000 of 4,000 cases filed by the victims of the violence were never investigated or dismissed, leading the Supreme Court of India to rebuke both the Gujarat judiciary and the Government of Gujarat for its handling of the cases, and transferring several cases out of the state for trial. Mr. Modi is a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the ultra-nationalist Hindu fundamentalist group, which, along with other Hindu extremist groups, receive funds from charities in the United States and the United Kingdom. Mr. Modi is in violation of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998, and other international laws, and there are currently two civil suits filed against him for crimes against humanity and genocide.

CAG will adopt a multi pronged strategy to expose and marginalize the extremists and will work towards safeguarding the pluralist ethos of India and the economic well being of the Indian Diaspora in US.

Genocide in Gujarat - The Sangh Parivar, Narendra Modi, and the Government of Gujarat

Final Solution Preview
Final Solution

  Final Solution is a study of the politics of hate. Set in Gujarat during the period February/March 2002 - July 2003, the film examines the genocidal violence of the Hindutva right-wing by exploiting the Godhra train incident and then goes on to document the various acts of brutality that marked the violence that followed. It travels with the election campaign during the Assembly elections in Gujarat in late 2002, and documents the spread of hate and fascism that accompanied it.
