Indian Muslim Council IMC_BOSTON is collecting signatures in support of banning Narendra Modi from coming into the United States. For those who don\'t know, Narendra Modi is the Chief Minister of the Indian State of Gujrat. He was responsible for the state sponsored massacre of over 2,000 Muslims, gang rapes of hundreds of Muslim women and the ethnic cleansing of 150,000 Muslims from the state of Gujrat. Other minorities like Christians and Dalits are also suffering along with the Muslims. In 2005, when Modi attempted to come to the United States, Indian Muslim Council USA led a campaign coalition of organizations known as Coalition Against Genocide to revoke Modi\'s visa. The State Department revoked his visa under International Religious Freedom Act which bars foreign officials with egregious human rights abuses from entering the United states. More recently Modi has also been accused by national and international human rights organizations, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch of conducting extra judicial killings of innocent Muslims under the pretext of fake \"terrorist encounters\" In April this year, he enacted an anti-conversion law that effectively bans religious conversions of Hindus to Islam or Christianity while providing loopholes which facilitate even forced conversions of Muslims and Christians to Hinduism. Now, Modi\'s supporters are lobbying hard with various congressmen to get his visa reinstated. He has also been invited to attend a Gurati convention on August 29th and sources in India report that he will be applying for a diplomatic visa. We need your support in signing this petition so that we can apply pressure on the State Department to place a permanent ban on Narendra Modi from entering the United States. Many thanks Seema Salim President IMC_BOSTON
