It is an undisputed fact about Gujarat that there were mass killings and rapes on grounds of religion. The events of Gujarat have led to few large-scale public statements. Our State Department has included an accurate summary of the events in its 2002 International Religious Freedom Report, but the U.S. government has not foregrounded these events in its foreign policy; indeed I cannot locate any major statement made by a member of the current administration condemning the attacks. We can write expressing overall concern with a U.S. policy that is basically silent about this genocide. In short, we can try to promote knowledge, debate, and the circulation of the truth, knowing that silence and indifference are the allies of tyranny.
