THE CAMPAIGN TO STOP FUNDING HATE
An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it........... Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position........... First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. - Mahatma Gandhi

 

 


Press Release from The Campaign to Stop Funding Hate
British Charity Funding Religious Extremism: New Report backs “Stop Funding Hate” Findings: "An investigative report says that a charity in the United Kingdom has channeled millions of pounds raised from the British Public to organizations affiliated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in India – the same organizations that are deeply implicated in the 2002 genocide of Muslims in Gujarat. Prepared by Awaaz – South Asia Watch Ltd., a London-based secular network, the report is titled “In Bad Faith? British Charity and Hindu Extremism.” The report points out that organizations such as Sewa International, the fund raising arm of the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) in the U.K, have been raising funds in the name of charity but siphoning the money to RSS front organizations in India."
