In India, a caravan of peace activists has arrived in the capital New Delhi as part of a month-long journey across India to highlight the rise of lynchings and violence against Muslims, Dalits and other minority groups. Led by activist Harsh Mander, the caravan is visiting with families of the victims of hate crimes, which have risen sharply under Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Data from the group India Spend shows some anti-Muslim hate crimes have risen 10-fold since Modi came to power in 2014.
