A group of activists in New Delhi, called ‘United Against Hate’ (UAH), have launched a new toll-free helpline (1800-3133-60000) in an attempt to address the growing hate crimes on minorities. Comprised of social workers, journalists, religious leaders, and lawyers, the group states that “at a time when the government has failed in ensuring justice, the helpline is aimed at providing legal and institutional support to victims of mob violence”.

Members will work in about a hundred Indian cities to track mob-violence and other hate crimes against minorities as well as assist victims in getting legal help and justice. UAH is also aiming to prevent such crimes by urging people to call on the helpline before a crime even takes place, when a mob is seen gathering.
