India stands with #NotInMyName as India can never be divided in the name of caste, creed, and gender. India is culturally and historically secular, democratic and more inclusive.

Different sections of society may have different, culture, lifestyle, and staple still they live together as an indistinguishable element of the India.   This smooth balance in society has been hampered by current and frequent cases of beef lynching, hate crimes, identity politics and invasion in the privacy of the public.

These cases have culminated in a campaign like #NotInMyName to raise voices against beef lynching, hate crimes, identity politics and invasion in the privacy of the general public.
