Last Week at HinduPACT
As we mark 51 years of “Operation Searchlight”, the day when #PakistanArmy and allied #Islamists launched the genocide of 2.8 million Hindus in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), our Director of Communications and Legislative Outreach @AdelleNaz hosted a PRESS CONFERENCE with leadership of @LemkinInstitute and Human Rights Congress for Bangladesh Minorities.

HinduPACT’s Texas chapter led by Dhaval Joshipura, Ashok Shah and Paro Sarkar organized a briefing with the office of Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher (R-TX). The details were well received, and the Office expressed their support for any resolution that may come in the House calling out Pakistan for the 1971 genocide.

CHINGARI Project
HinduPACT’s CHINGARI Project continues to sound the alarm on the continued attacks on Hindu and other minorities girls by Pakistan extremists. IF you would like to volunteer to reach out to one of the dozens of American companies that procure products from Pakistan, to urge them to boycott Pakistani products, please write to us at utsav.chakrabarti@hindupact.org
