Indian American Muslim Council is the largest advocacy organization of Indian Muslims in the United States.
The primary objectives are to promote the common values of pluralism, tolerance, and respect for human rights that form the basis of the world’s two largest secular democracies – the United States and India.
And to work towards increasing inter-faith and inter-community understanding in the United States, with particular focus on the Indian Diaspora with a view to safeguard individuals and societal institutions from infiltration by divisive and hate-filled ideologies.
Let us come together, all Indians across the world, to work towards safeguarding our beloved motherland and its rich history of culture, diversity, unity and communal harmony.
