Hello Ms.Tenzer,

I am writing to urge American Express to withdraw as the founding sponsor of 2005 convention of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This way AMEX will not be seen as condoning the massacres and still ongoing persecution of religious minorities under Mr. Modi's leadership in Gujarat, India.

Narendra Modi is the Chief Executive of the Gujarat State Government that was complicit in the massacres and rapes of thousands of people as documented by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, US State Department and the Indian National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). The Supreme Court of India has rebuked him calling him a "modern day Nero" for his actions during the pogroms. The 2002 Gujarat pogroms specifically targeted women and children and used sexual mutilation as an ethnic cleansing tool. I believe that American Express has been misled by AAHOA.

Chris Matthews of MSNBC Hardball program who was scheduled to give a keynote address at the convention has already withdrawn.

I am now asking American Express to withdraw their support to the AAHOA convention.

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.
