Citizens Against Hate (CAH) is a collective of individuals and groups committed to a secular, democratic, caring India. It is an open collective, with members drawn from a wide range of backgrounds – professions, academia, law, business, media, and the social sector – all anxious about rising hate in India, and committed to retaining the inclusive ethos of Indian society and constitution. It was formed in July 2017, in response to the rising trend of hate politics and hate crime in recent years, specifically the rash of lynchings and vigilante violence against minorities. CAH’s mandate is to counter – through research, outreach, and advocacy – hate in all its forms; and to provide practical help to victims of hate crime, in their fight for justice and restitution. Misaal, New Delhi, acts as the secretariat for CAH, and administers CAH’s Justice and Rehabilitation project.
