The map is a response to the rising incidence of prejudice and discrimination, often against communities that have also been historically marginalised, and also against those who protest these forms of discrimination. Through consolidating these events on a single platform, we hope to chart their spread over time and space, as well as draw similarities and contrasts between different regions of South Asia.
