We would like to give you a heads up on the spontaneous campaign underway to send you bottles of Purell hand sanitizer. When the news came out that you have invited Indian Prime Minister Modi to the Facebook headquarters and will be shaking hands with him, many in the Bay Area became really concerned for you!
As you know, Mr. Modi was banned by successive administrations from entering the United States on account of his role in the massacre of some 1,921 religious minorities in India. Many among the killed were innocent children. Like Ahmed Mohamed, these children were the target of pure bigotry—only in this case, unleashed by Mr. Modi himself.
So when you meet Mr. Modi tomorrow, and shake hands with him, there will be a lot of blood on his hands that will stick to you. That’s a lot of blood to clean….and many people are mailing you bottles of Purell, each one dedicated to a victim of the Gujarat massacres, so you can get that blood off your hands.
Friends have launched a dedicated website to facilitate this effort:
Zuck, Wash Your Hands
Hope the Purell reaches you in time. Your concerned neighbors have already mailed some 250 bottles to your office earlier this week, and many more requests are pouring in.
Zuck, please do wash your hands.
—your friends at the Alliance for Justice and Accountability
PS: The media may be asking about the Purell at the Town Hall tomorrow
Meet Mr. Modi, the Prime Minister of India.
He was previously banned from the U.S. for complicity with genocide.
He almost has us convinced that his hands are clean.
But we all know how much blood is on his hands.
“[M]obs of Hindus rampage, rape, loot and kill in a spasm of violence that rages for more than two months. Mothers are skewered, children set afire and fathers hacked to pieces. About 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, are killed. Some 20,000 Muslim homes and businesses and 360 places of worship are destroyed, and roughly 150,000 people are displaced. There are widespread allegations that the B.J.P.…were complicit and in some cases instigated the mobs…The day after the train attack, for example, police officers in Ahmedabad do not arrest a single person among the tens of thousands of angry Hindus. A top state official tells one investigation panel that Mr. Modi ordered officials to take no action against rioters. That official was murdered. Thousands of cases against rioters are dismissed by the police for lack of evidence despite eyewitness accounts.”

Meet Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook.
Zuck, don’t get that blood all over your hands 🙁
We decided to help Zuck by sending him Purell® hand sanitizer.
But there’s a lot of blood to clean.
So we decided to send a few more bottles.
But a few bottles won’t be enough when you count up all the rapes and deaths that Modi was complicit in.
So we decided to buy every bottle of hand sanitizer we could find.
Dear Zuck, we hope the Purell reaches you in time.
Last week, your concerned neighbors sent over 250 packages of Purell hand sanitizer in the mail, each containing the name of a victim of the Gujarat genocide.
Zuck, please wash your hands.
