The brutal Mumbai terrorist attacks sought to divide us. Join an urgent message to show the extremists they failed, and call for unity against terror:
We’re all feeling the shock of the awful attacks in Mumbai. All our hearts go out to the victims and their families.
These attacks were aimed at our people, our prosperity and our peace. But their top target was something else: our unity. If these attacks cause us to turn on each other in hatred and conflict, the terrorists will have won. They know that hatred and chaos feed on division. They also know they are radical extremists, and their only way to win is to turn the rest of us against one other.
Let’s deny them that victory. We’re launching a message to extremists on all sides and all our political leaders, when it reaches 10 lakh we will publish it in newspapers across India and Pakistan. The message is that these tactics aren’t working, that we’re more united than ever, united in our love and support to each other, and determined to work together to stop violent extremism, and we expect all our political and religious leaders to join us, and make this a moment for unity, not division. If lakhs of people sign it, our message will be unmistakable, click below to sign it and please forward this email to everyone:
Extremists seek to tear India, and the rest of the world, apart. Our best weapon against them, and the best way to honour the memory of those who have been killed, is to come together in unity and reconciliation, and make sure our leaders do the same.
It’s time to speak out, let’s do it together.
With respect, sadness and hope,
Ricken Patel and the Avaaz team.
