It's crazy how much crap the government has gotten away with. I only recently learned about the forced sterilization of millions of women while Indira Gandhi was PM

What's the book about? I'm always looking to add to my book list. I learned about it in a textbook for an environmental history class weirdly enough

Good on them for bringing global attention to this issue. Idk how much it will help, but at least some light on this is better than nothing

The amount of people defending modi and the BJP really is sickening.

Fuck all the bollywood actors staying silent while appropriating my people’s music, food and culture. Looking at you ajay devgn, akshay kumar and kangana ranaut. Only priyanka chopra somewhat spoke out. Thanks to rihanna for bringing attention to this. The world’s media has been silent. The largest protest in human history and none of the major news channels can be bothered to report on it. Sikhexpo and trolleytimes on Instagram has been doing a lot of leg work. I am so disgusted. This has been going on for two months. Bjp, hindu nationalists and modi are fucking vile. My people are dying and no one cares

I learned about it from khaled beydoun on instagram. I was quite shocked I hadn't seen much, if anything, in the media.
