In memory of Farooq

Today is the anniversary of the cold-blooded murder of atheist M Farooq, a 31 year old scrap merchant in Tamil Nadu India because of his atheism and Facebook posts pronounced “anti-Islamic.”

He was killed 15 days after he posted a photo of one of his children holding a placard with the handwritten slogan “Kadavul illai, Kadavul illai, Kadavul illai (No God, No God, No God)” in 2017.

He was a member of an atheist organisation, Dravidar Vidudhalai kazhagam, that fights religious/caste bigotry.

He was killed by a group that included friends who disagreed with his views.

Today we remember him and all those who have been killed because of bigotry and intolerance towards those who think differently.
