Modi was previously banned by successive US administrations from entering the United States, for his role in the 2002 Gujarat massacres, in which nearly 2,000 people were killed. With his Silicon Valley visit, Modi’s supporters plan to hold a “rock star” reception aimed at rehabilitating his image as a pogrom-tainted politician.

AJA members will be sharing inconvenient facts about Modi’s record that his PR team wants to hide — on the environment, religious rights, civil rights, women’s rights, LGBTQ equality, the safety of Dalit and adivasi communities, and beyond.

INTERVIEWS: Speakers and spokespersons of various organizations under AJA will be available to answer media questions.
