Dear friends across India and the world,


We're all feeling the shock of the awful attacks in Mumbai.
All our hearts go out to the victims and their families. I'm writing this because I feel we need to honor their memory.

The attacks were aimed at our people, our prosperity and our peace. But their top target was something else: our unity. If these attacks cause us to turn on each other in hatred and conflict, the terrorists will have won. They know that hatred and chaos feed on division. They also know they are radical extremists, and their only hope of reaching society as a whole is by turning the rest of us against each other.

Let's deny them that victory. We're launching a message to extremists on all sides the message is that these tactics aren't working, that we're more united than ever, united in our love and support to each other, and determined to work together to stop violent extremism. If millions of people sign it, our message will be unmistakable, click below to sign it and please forward this email widely:

As a Muslim, I am shocked at what has been done in the name of my faith. As an Indian, I am determined to keep these terrorists from tearing our nation apart. As a human being, I join with the entire world in condemning this horrific violence.

It's time to speak out, let's do it together.

With respect, sadness and hope,

Soha Ali Khan

Bollywood actress and Avaaz senior advisor

Rajesh Singh, Mira Road, Mumbai, says: It seems you are finished with the articles. Terrorists kill 180 and injured 290 in 4 days... and you have an article about Terrorists killing people...see I've something better. On an average 1 accident per minute in India and 290 deaths per day. 130,000 deaths in India due to road accidents in 2007 alone. Out of which 40% due to drunk driving. More...In India smoking caused about 700,000 deaths in the year 2000, mostly among middle-aged men (35-69). Annual tobacco deaths in middle age in India are projected to reach 1 million by 2025. Even more...This year alone, twenty million people worldwide will die of malnutrition. One child dies of malnutrition every 2.3 seconds. One hundred million people could be adequately fed using the land freed if Americans reduced their intake of meat by a mere 10%. Eighty percent of the corn and 95% of the oats grown in the US is eaten by livestock. The percentage of protein wasted by cycling grain through livestock is calculated by experts as 90%. One acre of good farmland can produce 40,000 pounds of potatoes, or 250 pounds of beef. Fifty-six percent of all US farmland is devoted to beef production, and to produce each pound of beef requires 16 pounds of edible grain and soybeans, which could be used to feed the hungry.
