Petition to Oman government to show our concerns for inviting Narendra Modi.

The Sultanate of Oman is inviting Gujarat CM Mr. Narendra Modi to lead a business delegation ( to develop a port in Gujarat. It is a well-know fact that in February-March 2002, as Chief Minister of Gujarat, Mr. Modi presided over and orchestrated widespread riots in which about 2000 hapless Muslims were massacred and more than 200,000 were rendered homeless. Tens of thousands of displaced Muslims are still unable to return to their homes for the fear of further attacks. The process of justice has been subverted in Gujarat in order to deny justice to the Muslims. There have been many incidences of harassment of Christians and burning of their Churches. With the well-deserved harvest of global condemnation, Mr. Modi is desperately courting foreign investments and collaboration to mend his image as a progressive in an effort towards a political restitution. The U.S. and many countries in Europe have banned his entry, by denying him visa. We want Oman government to reconsider the invitation extended to Mr. Modi, as a mark of respect for humane values enshrined in all religions and the declaration of universal human rights under the UN Charter. Please sign the petition to Oman government to show your concerns about their invitation to Mr. Modi.
