India Hate Lab (IHL) is a Washington D.C. based research group run by a dedicated team of journalists, academicians, and researchers. Its objective is to document, study, and analyze hate speech, disinformation, and conspiracy theories that target India’s religious minorities, both in the digital realm and in offline spaces.

Through our in-depth quantitative and qualitative research, we aim to unravel the underlying causes and consequences of online hate on social media platforms and offline hate speech events for India’s 250 million minorities.
