The present street jihad in Leicester has either been blacked out by the media or blamed on Hindu ‘extremists’. Perplexed as to the reasons for the disturbances and trying to evade the obvious source, various reasons have been put forward. In doing so even right-wing media such as the Daily Mail have quoted active cyber [...]
Amazon series Man in the High Castle is based upon a book by the same name. Deviating quite substantially from the original book by Phillip K Dick written in 1962, it nevertheless keeps the basics of the plot. This is a world in which the Axis powers have won the war, with Germany having developed [...]
. In fact can we even use terms such as left and right-wing, because, with regard to Hindus, the Labour Party takes on a disturbing resemblance of the ultranationalist Nazi-style outfits which demonised people of colour? These attacks on minorities were not just speeches and propaganda. They took physical form, as does the Hinduphobia pushed [...]
Dear Sir Starmer, Hindu Human Rights Group (HHR) was set up to highlight persecution, oppression, and discrimination against Hindus worldwide. HHR was formed in the UK, and it is sadly in this country that we find Hinduphobia now going mainstream.

Hinduphobia is a modern term for a far more ancient practice. Hindu Human Rights have traced historical roots in their articles for religious persecution of Hindus since Islamic and British colonialisms.
The experiences of Hindus may have other terms to describe them. This list is an evolving document, set up to clarify the historical context for [...]
The Left uses colonial constructs in its seeming 'progressive' and liberationist view of humanity. Therefore Hinduism is evil because of caste system, superstition, and India's poverty. The Right it must be remembered has been the traditional haunt of those who espouse racism, xenophobia, imperial glories, values of Little England, the sanctity of the British Empire, [...]
The furore created by US presidential candidate, the populist and conservative Republican Donald Trump, who stated that Muslim immigration to America should be stopped, needs to be seen in a wider context.
