Muhammad Rizwan started this petition to Non-Indian Cricket Players and IPL Sponsors

The Indian government has passed the Citizenship Amendment Bill, which is highly discriminatory against Muslims. The reaction to the bill, however, is muted by the fact that India is a major economic player on the international scene. At end of February 2020 while Mr. Trump was visiting India, communal violence took place on the streets of New Delhi where Muslim people, their homes and businesses were systematically attacked by Hindu extremists. What is truly horrifying is that the police were told by government officials to stand down and do nothing as a segment of the population was attacked purely because of their faith.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 begins on Mar 29th, 2020. This high-profile franchise cricket tournament attracts foreign cricketers from all around the world and is a major revenue generator that funds the racist ideology of the current Indian adminstration. It is utmost importance that all foreign cricketers refuse to participate in IPL 2020 and all financial sponsors renege on their contracts to send a clear message that religious discrimination will not be tolerated, no matter how much the financial impact. 

As a Muslim and a human being, I care. I hope you do so as well.
