WASHINGTON — The Coalition for the Defence of the Constitution and Democracy (CDCD), a coalition of South Asian human rights, Muslim, Dalit, and secular activist groups, will hold a press conference in New York City on 6th September to protest against World Hindu Congress (WHC), a Hindutva conclave being organized by US-based Hindu nationalist organizations such as Vishwa Hindu Parishad – America (VHP-A) and Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS).

The WHC event will be held in Lombard (Chicago), U.S. from September 7 – 9, 2018.

“It features a list of speakers and participants from Hindutva organizations, many of whom are directly responsible for the ongoing persecution of minorities in India. This includes the supreme leader of the RSS, Mohan Bhagwat, the Chief Minister of the state of Uttar Pradesh, Ajay Singh Bisht (a.k.a. “Yogi Adityanath”) and others,” said the organizers of the press conference in a statement on Saturday.

  1. Nobody in a right mindset would believe the false propaganda being spread against the WHC and the Hindus. It is simply an attempt to spread religious hatred and to disturb the religious harmony. The conference is about Politics, Education, Media, Economics, Youth, Woman, and more. The Hinduism teaches human values, mutual respect, tolerance, mutual harmony, pluralism, peace, kindness, non-violence, secularism, generosity, and much more.

    Hindus have never invaded any country. The Hinduism has contributed in neuroscience, Yoga, mathematics, decimal system, binary system, Ayurveda, and much more. Hindus scientists, doctors, engineers, CEOs, and entrepreneur have a significant contribution in the USA and across the world.

    India is the best (or one of the best) countries for minorities! And, it is because of the Hindu majority. They believe in “वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् (Whole world is my family)”. Simply compare the conditions of minorities in Pakistan, Bangladesh and some other countries, and you would understand what I mean!
    I support the world Hindu Congress because it’s for the humanity; not only for the Hindus!

  2. How much have you contributed to the development of the country . Has any one from your family ever served in the armed forces .

  3. Shame on you for Hinduphobia. It’s obvious you are being funded by #TukdeTukdeGang and anti-India & anti-Hindu forces of vatican and Saudis

  4. This is a pseudo organization made solely for the political purposes. The people across the lines of religion, cast, political affiliations and various other social issues live in harmony and peace in India.
    The intolerance, Orange Terrorisism and various other issues are merely created by press, media and opposition parties n foreign interests trying to weaken India

  5. I suggest these anti Hindu activist try living in Pakistan , Bangladesh or Islamic nations . Thank God you are living with Hindu majority. Look at Kashmir where Hindus got all killed . Foolish activist . Wish India was declared as Hindu nation . Today you see millions convert Muslims millions convert Christian who are these fools these were once foolish uneducated Hindus

  6. Hidutva means all are equal and everyone is to be treated fairly. But since 50 years, the political dispensation for their selfish needs has given priority treatment to non Hindus at the cost of Hindus. A simple example being Jains given minority status though they are the richest community India. One more example Haj subsidy to Muslims. But since last four years Hindus have been asserting for fair and just treatment but this has not gone down well with non Hindus as their priority treatment is under threat. Even within in Hindus, some have a personal agenda to oppose Hindutva ( congress). So all this opposition to Hindutva is nothing but efforts to not only demean it but more importantly it us to protect their narrow and personal interest.

  7. The main tenet of Hinduism is ‘Tat Tvam Asi’, that means ‘you are that divine reality’. In other words all of us are manifestations of one divine reality. There is no place for criticizing that divine truth. I wish these ‘breakers’ of the world get some opportunity and openness to learn this truth. 🙏

    This organization seems to be backed by Anti Indians, solely supports Congi and team. The people across India are living in peace.

    Terrorisism and other issues are created by press, media and opposition parties
