    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for your support and all your efforts! You are incredible!

    Just a little bit more...and WE ARE THERE! We are still INR 20,000 short of our fundraising goal. Please continue to spread the word so the money reaches the family and becomes a source of relief to them as soon as possible. We will keep you all updated. 

    Thank you!

    Samiya & Zeyad

    Hi everyone, 

    We've almost reached our fundraising goal - AND IT'S ALL THANKS TO EACH ONE OF YOU! We've crossed the 90% mark and we are almost there, but we need your help once more! As you can see, we have INR 34,200 still to raise, and the sooner we get there, the faster we can have the money transferred to Pehlu Khan's family. 

    As is the natural course of things, the flow of funds at this point has slowed down - although money is still coming in, we need all the help we can at this point to accelerate the contributions! Therefore, I urge all of you to please share the fund-raiser on your social networking pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin etc.), email them to your family and friends, and call people up and ask them to get on-board! 

    Thank you so much to everyone once again! <3

About the Fundraiser

 

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. 

Thank you!
