Anti-terrorists Laws Used To Suppress Minorities: Manisha Sethi

Manisha Sethi, convener, Jamia Teachers’ Solidarity Association, said victims of hate crimes are often made out to be guilty and anti-terrorist laws are used to supress minorities. There are striking similarities between encounters and lynching and that there is a sort of public-private partnership in killing people of certain communities. The conference ‘Status of Human Rights in India’ was organised by Majlis and the Centre for Study of Society and Secularism at the Asiatic Society of Mumbai on October 14, 2017.
