The appeal from Special Rapporteurs on the right to freedom of opinion and expression, Irene Khan, and the situation of human rights defenders, Mary Lawlor follows what they have called “relentless misogynistic and sectarian attacks” against Rana Ayyub – including death and rape threats. 

Rana Ayyub, independent journalist, and defender women’s human rights, continues to be the target of intensifying online harassment by far-right Hindu nationalist groups, they said.

They pointed to the attacks as resulting from Ms. Ayyub’s reporting on issues affecting minority Muslims in the country, her criticism of the Government for its handling of the pandemic, and comments that she made on a recent ban on hijabs at schools and colleges in Karnataka state.

“In response to Ms. Ayyub’s efforts to shine a light on public interest issues and hold power to account through her reporting, she has been maliciously targeted with anonymous death and rape threats by organised groups online,” said the experts.

“The lack of condemnation and proper investigation by the Government, coupled with the legal harassment it has itself inflicted on Ms. Ayyub, has only served to falsely legitimise the attacks and attackers and further endangered her safety.”

Rana Ayyub Career

Rana Ayyub was able to work for “Tehelka” which is a Delhi-based investigative and political news magazine. She also had previously been critical of the BJP in general as well as Narendra Modi.

She was able to work as an investigative journalist and her big assignment was to carry out the sting operation upon which her book Gujarat Files was based. Unfortunately, at the end of the sting operation, the management of Tehelka refused to publish any story written by Ayyub or based on the data collected by her. However, she even did continue to work with Tehelka for several months more.

Likewise, Ayyub as of now works independently. But, Washington Post hired her as its contributing writer to the Global Opinions section in September 2019. Then, in October 2020, HarperCollins India published an open letter written by Ayyub, to protest the controversial appointment of Actor Gajendra Chauhan as the Chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII).

Moreover, she was able to take up a project to conduct a prolonged sting operation aimed at snaring politicians and government officials of Gujarat as an investigative journalist working along with Tehelka.

She then went on to spend around ten months in disguise to befriend her intended targets. She even was able to get paid a regular monthly salary from Tehelka during this period. However, the information she collected was not much of help.

She published a book “Gujarat Files: Anatomy of a Cover-Up”. She documented the verbatim transcripts of recordings, made using a concealed recording device, of many bureaucrats and police officers of Gujarat during writing the book.

During this time, she also had a dispute with “Tehelka”. Likewise, her book was praised by many people and big personalities as well. And, in the year 2018, she was able to receive the “most Resilient Global journalist” by Dutch non-profit Free Press Unlimited for resisting attempts to stifle her work.
