Why Zuckerberg Received Bottles Of Hand Sanitisers When Modi Was in US?
When Prime Minister Modi was in Silicon Valley, Mark Zuckerberg received bottles of hand sanitiser Purell from a group of activists suggesting that the PM’s hands are still tainted from the blood of the Muslims who died in the 2002 riots. If Zuckerberg shakes hands with Modi, the site suggests, he may need a good sanitiser.
Activists from a group which identified themselves as Alliance for Justice and Accountability (AJA), set up a website called www.zuckwashyourhands.com before Narendra Modi’s visit to the Facebook headquarters.
They even put up a picture of an imprint of a bloodied palm to drive home their point.The website reads, “Last week, your concerned neighbours sent over 250 packages of Purell hand sanitizer in the mail, each containing the name of a victim of the Gujarat genocide.” people can also sign up a form to send a hand-wash to Zuckerberg on their behalf.
On their website called www.modifail.com, AJA says, “We stand up for India’s religious minorities, women, LGBTQ people, historically marginalized castes, Dalits and adivasis — as well as everyone who loves a safe and clean environment, civil rights, free speech, net neutrality, online privacy and security, and the right to openly debate and disagree.”
Despite media attention focussing less on the protesters, they have devised innovative ways to voice their anger against his meetings with top CEO’s in the US.
Modiji’s US tour was a successful one apart from these kinds of minor incidents.
