Narendra Modi’s recent visit to the Facebook headquarters has sparked anger and protests in India.

A group of activists working under the name of Alliance for Justice and Accountability have created a website against the Indian prime minister who was allegedly involved in Gujrat riots in 2002 that killed around 1,000 people, mostly Muslims.

The website, titled “Zuck, wash your hands!” calls on Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg to clean his hands after meeting the man who ‘committed genocide’.

It doesn’t end there. The adamant activists have been sending Zuckerberg sanitisers to “help remove bloodstains left behind from shaking hands with Narendra Modi”.

According to the website, hundreds of sanitisers have already been sent to the Facebook CEO.

Each of the sanitisers have a name of a Gujrat genocide victim written on it.

The website also allows anyone who wants to send a sanitiser in his name to Zuckerberg.

    According to a recent survey Prime Minister Modi received a whopping 87% approval ratings in India. No other world leader can boast of such a massive popularity. A few hundred attention seeking Commi-Loosers can’t make any difference.

    Modi is an illiterate person who committed genocide of all minorities. That is the reason he was denied USA visa for 10 years. It is very un-American to invite such criminal to USA. So many Indians love him because he is a war-monger and talks about wiping minorities. Shame on all of them. Recommend

    But in India almost everyone likes Modi.. American agency did a Pew survey last month and it got astonishing results for a 1.5 year completed PM. Modi has favourability rating of 87%, more than he got during the his election.Recommend

    Go to the AsiaPacific Blog of the Google to see what all things Modi has achieved last week with Google.. It describes just 1 agreement… There are total 7 agreements signed and announcement with the Tech giants of the Silicon Valley…by Modi in 1 day… These are stepping stones something bigger tomorrow. Modi is focussing on improving all 3 sectors of the economy – Manufacturing, Services and Agriculture. Services and the related job creation require high speed internet across the country.Recommend

    Only history will tell how much damage Modi is inflicting on Secular India … which will have grave consequences for the very existence of India….
