“When it comes to human rights defenders working for the Muslim in India community- they will be called terrorists, and when it comes to those working on gender issues- they will be called prostitutes or other terms meant to destroy the dignity of the target.” #FreeUmarKhalid
“Without a doubt, the revelations about the NSO hacking of human rights defenders around the world should be a wake-up call to anyone advocating for freedom or democracy in the world" ~ @warishusain

Dear @Newsweek,
An opinion(newsweek.com/covid-relief-f…)published by you makes defamatory & patently false claim that IAMC is “anti-Hindu Islamist group with alleged ties to SIMI, a banned terror org in India.”

IAMC is not anti-Hindu, not an Islamist group & has no ties to SIMI. 1/n
It is hard to believe that a magazine of @Newsweek stature has run so short of content that it is compelled to accommodate discredited ranters like Sam Westrop of Middle East Forum (MEF). 2/n
@splcenter, a respected org working for racial justice & ending white supremacy described MEF as a “think tank run by anti-Muslim provocateur Daniel Pipes”, an “anti-Muslim activist” who has “spent the better part of 3 decades vilifying Muslims”. 3/n
