Three Nobel Prize Laureates have urged Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to cancel its award to Indian PM Narendra Modi for his human rights violations and atrocities in Jammu and Kashmir.

In their joint letter addressed to Foundation, Mairead Maguire, Tawakkol Abdel-Salam Karman, and Shirin Ebadi expressed their serious reservations. They said under PM Modi’s leadership, New Delhi has descended into dangerous and destructive chaos that has consistently undermined human rights, democracy.

This is particularly troubling to us as the stated mission of your foundation is to preserve life and fight inequity,” they added. The situation in the state of Assam and Jammu and Kashmir is cause for grave concern as well.

“The organization “Genocide Watch” has issued not one, but two alerts for India in these regions.

In Assam, 1.9 million Indians have been stripped of citizenship; in Kashmir, since August, 800,000 Indian armed forces have kept eight million Kashmiris without any communication for over 40 days,” they added.

They further said because of these human rights abuses, children in Jammu and Kashmir from Kindergarten to college are unable to attend school. They also referred to the attacks on minorities, specifically Indian Muslims, Christians, and Dalits.

Nobel Prize Laureates requested the Foundation to rescind its award to PM Modi because by doing so, they would send a clear and powerful message that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation took its aim of equity, justice, and human rights for all seriously – and that it was committed to promoting these values in a consistent fashion.
