Hindu Supremacist Attacks on Religious Freedom
WASHINGTON, D.C., (September 4, 2021) – Hindu supremacist forces are bent on silencing anyone who wants to speak truth to bigotry and raises concern for religious freedom and human rights violations in India. These groups, both in India and abroad, are not only advancing a warped narrative that demonizes minorities and enables brutal violence against them, they are also launching vicious attacks on those who speak up against the advancement of fascism in India.
But no matter what, they can’t silence the academics who continue to speak truth to bigotry. The best way to fight back is to stay informed and to proactively create awareness. Please register for the online congressional briefing and share it widely, especially with those in academia.
WHAT: Online Congressional Briefing on ‘Hindu Supremacist attacks on Academic Freedom’
WHEN: September 8, 2021 starting at 12:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM CST / 9:00 AM PST
The briefing, led by renowned academics from top universities worldwide, is a crash course in understanding Hindutva as a political ideology, the reasons why Hindu supremacists are seeking to control the narrative in regards to violations of human rights and religious freedom in India, and why they see US academia and it’s expose of Hindutva as a threat to that goal.
