Today in Hinduphobia March 27, 2021: The South Asianist Silence over the Bengali Hindu Genocide of 1971

“We empower Hindu American communities to live out their faith through service etc.” Not a word on their website or calendar about the 50th anniversary of the biggest Hindu genocide of our times but an event instead for the biggest Hindu genocide-denier of our time!
“How Hindutva is harming the planet” is what this Hindu-named group is doing this month. Sure. I might have loved your points if you had the honesty to also be a Hindu for Hindu Human Rights.
Nope. So much for “South Asian” solidarity when Bangladeshi American suffering doesn’t get a peep out of this group! There’s only so much you can talk about hate against South Asians while pretending there’s no hate against South Asians who have clung to their indigenous traditions aka Hindus.
