The GIA, a group of empowered professional Indian women, has petitioned over 50 universities that are sponsoring hatred against Hindus by supporting ‘Dismantling Global Hindutva: Multidisciplinary Perspectives’.
This Hinduphobic conference is “sponsored by 70 plus centres or departments at over 50 universities globally”.
The petition notes that “The website of the event (https://dismantlinghindutva.com/ ) says that ‘Hindutva is an authoritarian political ideology that historically drew inspiration from Nazi Germany and Mussolini’s Italy. Its guiding principle is to transform India from a secular democracy to a religious state where Muslims, Christians, and other religious minorities are relegated to second class citizenship.’”
The GIA calls it “a dangerous and un-substantiated social labeling of an entire indigenous population on the basis of religion with no basis in literature or research.”
Through such efforts of vested interests, “hatred is being built by equating the symbols of Hinduism i.e. the Tilak (red forehead mark), the Om and Swastika (ancient sacred Hindu symbols), the color saffron (a color of the entire Dharmic population of India including Buddhists, Sikhs) with fascism and casteism. This has led to unprecedented lynching’s and targeted attacks at Hindus adopting these symbols.”
The petition emphasizes that “The conference on Dismantling Global Hindutva claims a distinction between Hinduism and Hindutva. In the guise of this banal argument, it is building a narrative of hate against Hindus by targeting Hindu symbols, beliefs and persons adhering to the faith. We once again reiterate that a base is being laid for genocide of Hindu populations globally.”
The Hinduphobic conference spreads multiple lies, like the current regime in India has instituted discriminatory policies, but doesn’t explain factually which policies are discriminatory and how.
The petition of the GIA points out that “the 50 plus universities that are sponsoring the event on Global Hindutva are laying open their campuses for a hate campaign against the Hindus that will, in time, surpass anti-Semitism seen in Europe. Hindus are an indigenous cultural group with well-established codes of dharma. They are being exposed to a vicious hate campaign by a global radical network. Universities supporting this insidious effort need to be held responsible.”
