Coalition Against Genocide

UPDATE: 09/30/2014:  I have launched a new Report providing in-dept information about the Coalition Against Genocide.  Titled, “Coalition Against Genocide and the Politics of Deception”, the report can be found at www.ahouseofcards.net and provides exhaustive details about the ideological, political and religious background of all the organizations, groups and individuals that make up the coalition.  It also provides details on how the coalition is deceiving regulators, media and the general public by hyping up the number of constituents and falsifying information about its members as well as its activities.

Coalition Against Genocide (CAG) was the brainchild of IAMC in the aftermath of the 2002 Gujarat riots.  This group is yet another example of the close coordination between Communists/Islamists/Christian organizations to lobby government officials such as the US State Department to intervene in matters related to India.  The coalition was successful in lobbying against the granting of visa to the Chief Minister of the State of Gujarat in India, Narendra Modi.  Though the role of Mr. Modi’s involvement in the 2002 Gujarat riots has never been established and he has in fact been cleared from such charges by various independent investigations, the coalition members had already implicated Modi right at the onset of the riots.  The US State Department buckled under intense lobbying by IAMC and the coalition members and rejected Modi’s visa.

According to the website, 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.”[1]  However, the ideological leanings and anti-Hindu/anti-India bias of this coalition become clear when one peruses the list of member organizations.  The list of organizations, among others, includes: “Alliance of South Asians Taking Action (ASATA), Association of Indian Muslims of America (AIM), Campaign to Stop Funding Hate (CSFH), Coalition against Communalism (CAC), Ekta, Federation of Indian American Christian Organizations of North America (FIACONA), Forum of Inquilabi (sic) Leftists (FOIL), Friends Of South Asia (FOSA), Indian Muslim Council-USA (IMC-USA), International South Asia Forum (INSAF), NRI’s for Secular and Harmonious India (NRI-SAHI), Organizing Youth (OY), Policy Institute For Religion And State (PIFRAS), South Asian Magazine for Action and Reflection (SAMAR) [the sister publication of FOIL’s Ghadar][2], South Asian Progressive Action Collective (SAPAC), Youth Solidarity Summer (YSS), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Tikkun’[3].  Chapter III has already demonstrated that while many of these organizations pose as separate entities, they are, in reality, part of FOIL.  Thus, FOIL and IAMC list these organizations in an attempt to overstate the number of coalition members.  Furthermore, why are magazines such as SAMAR listed as organizations?

In addition, the website contains a “Preview” to the movie Final Solution, by Rakesh Sharma, who was discussed in Chapter IV.  Furthermore, the site provides links to Teesta Setalvad’s Sabrang (which was discussed in Chapter IV, part (f)) as well as a PDF entitled Concerned Citizens Tribunal – Gujarat 2002 An inquiry into the carnage in Gujarat published by Citizens for Justice and Peace[4], also associated with Teesta Setalvad.

Furthermore, a Whois.Net search of the domain name shows that the registered address is in Ellicott City, MD.[5]  Interestingly Kaleem Kawaja’s Association of Indian Muslims in America is also located in Ellicott City, MD?[6]

  1. Coalition against genocide has Sikh and Hindu organisations as well in it with over 40 different Indian organisations supporting it

    Just because you can’t stomach the truth doesn’t mean conspiracy theories are the truth

    • Dear Ankit,

      Looks like you have either not read my website or you are ignorant or a supporter of one of these organizations or any combination of the above.

      I happen to be in the USA and have been monitoring the activities of many of these organizations and groups. As I mention in the section on CAG as well as throughout the entire website, many of the so-called “organizations” that you refer to fall into various categories:

      1. Groups and organizations that have known anti-Hindu/anti-India bias

      Any position taken by this category is usually biased against Hindus. It seems that Hindus are dispensable and therefore it doesn’t matter if women and children are killed and more than 200 of them die in riots. The CAG used to also be referred to as the Coalition Against Communalism. It appears that they changed the name and added “Genocide” to exaggerate their appeal.

      Secondly, they support people and include people like Teesta Setalvad and Shabnam Hashmi whose views and biases have also been illustrated on my website.

      2. Groups and organizations that are just ghost or shell organizations that have are run by the same people under different names

      This is a strategy used by the Indian Leftists/Marxists over and over. You can conveniently find some eye popping evidence in the “Important Illustrations” section of my website.

      This strategy is used by the Islamists and the Christian Missionaries mentioned on my website.

      They also use non-mainstream “Hindu” sounding organizations as part of their coalitions to give it a more “interfaith” appeal. But, how come they have not secured support of any major Hindu temple, religious organization, social organization, spiritual organization, spiritual body, etc.? Where is the support from organizations such as Art of Living, Chinmaya Mission, Sathya Sai organization, Arya Samaj, All World Gayatri Pariwar, the various Muthas, Swadhyay Pariwar, Ramakrishna Mission, Swami Chidananda, Swami Dayananda Saraswati, etc.? Or, are all these and other Hindu organizations extremists and so will not join this so called “coalition”?

      You need to get your head out of the ground and read the evidence that is in front of you. This is not a conspiracy theory but is based on blatant evidence and first hand observation. I invite you to read my website more thoroughly.

      Best,
      Abhi.

  2. Very good. I create a petition in causes.com Stop hindu killing in pakistan.pls sign it. Vinay pandey.advocate/humanrightactivist.india

  3. Well researched article. This self-styled “coalition against genocide” organisation clearly has no concept or interest in “genocide” at all. It is clearly solely an anti-BJP/Modi political movement amorally,shamelessly trivialising and misusing “genocide” label and their sposored propaganda film and materials. gujarat-1000people killed in riots by Hindu AND Muslim extremists- 1/3rd Hindus. Shame on them for insulting victims of actual genocide. How about dealing with real genocide.- bangladesh 3million by pakstani armed forces in 1971, or 1.5million sudanese christians by islamists or pakstan sponsored islmaist terror in kashmir,balochistan,sindh and afghanistan, or millions of non-muslims and secular muslims by islamists around world-china,chechnya,dagestan,thailand,somalia,mali,algeria etc (not to mention 300million+ by islamists in history – largest genocide of all time).

    • Dear Dave,

      Thanks for your comments. Fully agree with you. The Coalition Against Genocide is politically and ideologically motivated. It has a simple agenda – to bring down Narendra Modi by hook or by crook. Why didn’t this organization exist in the past when many bloody riots happened in India and elsewhere in “South Asia”? Why doesn’t this organization talk about the genocide of Hindu Pandits from Kashmir as well as the several riots that happened under the Congress Rule?

      By the way, up until 2005 or so, they used to call themselves “Coalition Against Communalism”, (http://cac.ektaonline.org/), a part and parcel of the FOIL, FOSA, Shabnam Hashmi, Teesta Setalvad crew. However, the word “Genocide” was inserted around the 2005 timeframe to replace the word “Communalism” because it has a better hype to it and can bring international attention. This “attention” was received when they were successful (to the shame of the Indian government and community) to block Narendra Modi’s visit to the US. It is amazing how the US Government blocked the visa of a democratically elected head of an Indian State, when crooks and dictators from all over the world are able to enter the US freely!

      Best,
      Abhi.
