Hate crimes against Muslims in India have exploded since Narendra Modi’s party came to power in 2014, with religious-based hate crimes surging nearly 30% in the 2014 to 2017 period, and then doubling since his landslide reelection in 2019, culminating with the murder of more than 50 Muslims over the course of six bloody days in New Delhi during February 23–29, 2020.
“The situation in India is approaching genocidal,” says Arundhati Roy, the award winning Indian novelist.
The purpose of this page is to track and document all hate crimes carried out against India’s 200 million Muslims, with the objective of catching all data regarding date, location, motive, victim, perpetrator and subsequent legal action, which will then be later populated into a searchable and analytical database, and then made available as a resource tool for journalists, academics and human rights activists.

“For India to be committed towards ending hate crimes — where people are targeted because of their identity stemming from race, religion, caste and gender amongst others, it is essential for the country’s penal laws to first recognize the bias behind the commission of such crimes and document the occurrence of such incidents — both of which remain conspicuously absent currently.” -Amnesty International India.
