Substantial increase in attack on Hindus in US: Indian-American Congressman

WASHINGTON: Observing that there is substantial increase in attacks against Hindus and Hinduism in the United States, an Indian-American Congressman warned that this was just the “beginning of a coordinated anti-Hindu attack”.

“Today I am seeing in the United States a substantial increase of attacks on Hinduism. A lot of misinformation is being circulated whether it is online or otherwise,” Congressman Shri Thanedar told reporters at a news conference held at the National Press Club here on Monday.

Thanedar and four other Indian American lawmakers – Ro Khanna, Raja Krishnamoorthi, Ami Bera and Pramila Jayapal – had recently written to the Department of Justice seeking an investigation on the recent surge in attacks on Hindu temples and places of worship.
