There is no longer any excuse for bewailing the hostility of those in power and simply sitting back in outraged righteousness. We must concede that any attempt to correct distortions the majority involves, amongst various things, funding direct action methods that support the minority, afflicted communities.
This fundraiser is for Maknoon, a journalism graduate from Kashmir, Mohammad Ibrar, a preserver of history and heritage from a Minority ghetto in Kolkata, Sanobar, an active community organizer and mutual aid worker from JNU, and Darakshan, a Kashmiri Nosh and a techie mother from Jamia Millia Islamia to fund their higher education in the University of Oxford, SOAS, University of Cambridge, and the University of Edinburgh, respectively.
Our community is seriously underrepresented in all spheres of life, especially academia, which lays the foundation for different business or socio-cultural initiatives. Having worked as a community organizer for the past eight years, I have seen and experienced this divide first-hand.
It is time we refuse to create a reality from which history, society, and humanity seem to have been eliminated, and I or the beneficiaries of this fundraiser cannot do this without your support.
