No doubt Prime Minister Modi is taking all the possible steps to develop our nation, but the dark penumbra of Gujrat riots keep haunting him. PM Modi on Sunday met up with the co founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg. A ‘townhall’ was organized at the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California which concluded with a standing ovation for the Prime Minister as he gave judicious answers regarding the questions from social media to women empowerment to his mother.
As soon as the meeting was over, a campaign called ‘Zuck, Wash Your Hands!’ was started by a group of activists called the Alliance for Justice and Accountability. The campaign calls for people to send hundreds of bottles of hand sanitiser to Zuckerberg to help him ‘wash the blood off his hands’ – reference to Modi’s failure to curb the religious riots that left nearly 1,000 people dead in Gujarat in 2002 when he was the chief minister.
“The American public – and in particular, the leaders of Silicon Valley – must remember that Modi is not simply a prime minister making a trade visit, he is a man responsible for genocide,” said a spokesperson for the collective, reports Scroll.The website for the campaign reports that 250 packages of hand sanitisers has been sent to Zuckerberg so far, each containing the name of a victim of the Gujarat genocide.
