IANH Members respond to Misinformation Campaign against India
On September 28, 2003 Union Leader published an article on Kashmir that featured two NH Reps. Bob Guida and Sagir Tahir. The two reps made baseless allegations against India. Many Indian Americans found their allegations offensive. We decided to counter the campaign of misinformation. Ravi Subrahmanyan a member of the Public Awareness Committee wrote an opposing editorial countering their allegations which was published in the Union Leader on October 8, 2003. Many other Indian Americans wrote letters to the Editor.
IANH responds to HCR 16 passed by NH Legislature
In the beginning of 2003, a few NH legislators sponsored a one sided resolution on Kashmir in both houses. On February 20, 2003 the legislature passed a watered down version of the resolution (NH House Resolution HCR 16). These legislators visited Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and an hour-long anti-India documentary based on their visit was aired by the WNDS TV, Derry in March.
IANH spent many hours and prepared a response which was sent to all the 400+ legislators and held a news conference on May to denounce the misinformation campaign. We sent a press release to all New England media
