Resolution condemning Hinduphobia

The Georgia Assembly (USA) passed a resolution condemning Hinduphobia, becoming the first state in the US to do so. The legislation acknowledges the contributions of the American Hindu community and condemns the “antagonistic, destructive, and derogatory attitudes and behaviours” towards Hindus that may manifest as prejudice, fear or hatred.

 

What is Hinduphobia?

 Hinduphobia is a term used to describe a set of attitudes and behaviours characterized by prejudice, fear, hatred, or antagonism towards Hinduism and Hindus. It can manifest in many forms, such as discrimination, stereotyping, and violence against individuals or communities of Hindu origin.
