Remembering Quit India: Three-day Quit Hatred fast begins at Khudai Khidmatgar campus

Well-known Magsaysay award winning academic-activist Sandeep Pandey and Faisal Khan of the Khudai Khitmatgar, an organization founded by Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, as part of their campaign called Quit Hatred (Nafrat Cchodo), launched on the Quit India day, August 9, have organized a three-day fast till August 12. Participated by other representatives of civil society, the main aim of the fast is "to arrest communal polarization by abusing religious sentiments of people and build an atmosphere of communal amity in the country", says a statement issued ahead of the fast.
Being held at Sabka Ghar, a campus to promote communal harmony run by Khudai Khidmatgar, in Ghaffar Manzil, Jamia Nagar, Okhla, New Delhi, the statement added, "In the land of Gandhi and Buddha, who are inspiration to the entire world for a humane society, religion is being abused to propagate hate and violence for political purposes. The secular Constitution of the country is being sabotaged and the secular fabric of society is being torn apart."
