Ravinder Singh, the founder and CEO of Khalsa Aid, recalled how humanitarian relief agency was targeted by the right wing in India, because they were in Bangladesh to feed the Rohingya Muslims.
“As soon as we started, and our volunteers from India landed in Bangladesh, the right-wing groups in India started posting pictures of Sikh guys and Rohingya refugee children, and you know what they were posting? This was a concentrated effort to undermine our work – big snake feeding a small snake!”.
