There are at least two things each of you can do to help save 12-15 million souls
Send a message to USCIRF telling them to act on what they know and officially recognize Bangladesh’s ethnic cleansing of Hindus. Once they do, we can take action in Congress, on trade issues, and with companies currently doing business with those who are killing the Bangladeshi Hindus.
If you have a client based email like Outlook or Thunderbird, Click here and send the email to USCIRF.
If your email is web based like gmail or Hotmail, email USCIRF with the Subject Line “Save Bangladesh’s Hindus” and the following message, which you cut and paste: “Dear Dr. Swett and other USCIRF Commissioners. The government of Bangladesh has been complicit in the ethnic cleansing of Hindus and supporting attacks on their religious freedom. Extensive evidence from independent witnesses confirms this, and in its recent trip to Bangladesh, USCIRF saw it. As such, we urge you to take strong action, including formal US recognition of the ethnic cleansing and the Bangladeshi government’s role in it, and to place Bangladesh among Tier 1 Countries. Thank you.”
Tell companies like Wal-Mart, the Number One importer of Bangladeshi goods, that their Bangladeshi purchases support ethnic cleansing and unsafe and unfair labor practices; and that people are noticing.

If your email is web based like gmail or Hotmail, email Walmart, Macy’s, The Gap, and Target; with the Subject Line “Stop Supporting Ethnic Cleansing of Bangladeshi Hindus” and the following message, which you can cut and paste:
“The United States is a top destination for Bangladeshi exports. Your company’s purchases support unsafe labor conditions and provide the economic engine for Bangladesh’s ethnic cleansing of Hindus. Since Bangladesh became a nation in 1971, Hindus have been reduced from almost a fifth of the population to about one in 15 through government-tolerated human rights atrocities including murder, gang rape, child abduction, religious desecration, and more. Through Bangladesh’s Vested Property Act, the government has seized about 80 percent of all Hindu property, impoverishing and de facto expelling the owners. The US Commission on International Religious Freedom recently validated these allegations, and Congress is considering hearings on them. We urge you to stop purchasing goods from Bangladesh, prevent consumers from associating your company name with ethnic cleansing, and save millions of lives. Thank you.”
