Personal Personal Causes
Fifty Five-year-old Pehlu Khan, a dairy farmer, was beaten up mercilessly with sticks and stones by cow vigilantes in Alwar, Haryana on April 1 on false accusations of being a cattle smuggler when he was transporting cows for his small dairy farm. He died of his wounds two days later. Being the breadwinner of the family, the murder has left his family distraught and battling a painful financial crisis.
We are trying to raise funds for Pehlu's family to help them through this difficult time. We have spoken to Pehlu's son Irshad, asked his permission, and verified his bank details. All the money raised through this platform will be directly credited to Irshad's personal account.
In the spate of growing religious intolerance in India, and a mob lynch claiming minority lives every day, let us continue to raise our voices against injustices everywhere, and do whatever little we can, to help those who pay a heavy price for simply being who they are.
We request all of you, who can, to pitch in and urge your friends and family members to do the same. Please help us spread the word as well.
