    Boston, MA (March 13, 2013) -- The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) welcomed the appointment of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio to the papacy, following the sudden and unprecedented resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. Foundation leaders expressed hope that the Catholic Church, under Pope Francis I, as he will be called, will respect and privilege pluralism and interfaith relations, based on earlier efforts with Nostra Aetete, the Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions. “As our Catholic friends, neighbors and colleagues celebrate the naming of their pontiff, we, as Hindu Americans, congratulate the Catholic Church and welcome Pope Francis...
  • Hindu-Americans Rank Top in Education, Income

    Hindu-Americans have the highest socioeconomic levels among all religions in the United States, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life. Experts say U.S. immigration policy is the main reason Hindus do so well. Both the 1965 Immigration Act and the more recent H1-B visa program set the table for Hindus to succeed. The former encouraged the immigration of professionals, particularly doctors and engineers, while the latter was designed to encourage the immigration of highly skilled “guest workers.” The number of H1-B visas issued to Indians grew steadily in the late 1990s...

    A disturbing action known as "love jihad" is gaining notoriety after several reports have emerged of young impressionable women being seduced by Muslim men who wish to manipulate them and use them in an effort to aid their jihad. Troves of diplomatic cables were disclosed to the public after the WikiLeaks incident, and one of the cables revealed how foreign officials were monitoring what they referred to as "love jihad" -- an alleged conspiracy of foreign-funded "charming" Muslim men attempting to seduce, marry and convert Hindu and Christian women to be used in the jihadi effort. One such correspondence from...

    Apologies if this has already been postedAs you sit down with your family on Thanksgiving and consider offering a prayer of gratitude, be aware the turkey at the center of the table may have already been "blessed" – in the name of Allah. Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America's most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company's whole turkeys are – without being labeled as such – slaughtered according to Islamic "halal" standards. "Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, 'Bismillah allahu akbar'...

    New Delhi The Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik writes in a manifesto that he acquired some 8,000 e-mail addresses of “cultural conservatives” not just across Europe but North America, Australia, South Africa, Armenia, Israel, and India – ensuring scrutiny of anti-Muslim groups far beyond Europe. Mr. Breivik’s primary goal is to remove Muslims from Europe. But his manifesto invites the possibility for cooperation with Jewish groups in Israel, Buddhists in China, and Hindu nationalist groups in India to contain Islam. "It is essential that the European and Indian resistance movements learn from each other and cooperate as much as possible....

    Muslim groups in Thalassery have been protesting the Church-managed San Jos Metropolitan School’s policy for over a year. The school allows students to wear headscarves to campus but wants them to take them off once they reach the classroom. Principal Sister Rosemary said the school cannot agree to the headscarf demand as it would make the school uniform’s dress code meaningless. “We will not accept the demand. It is not the sole decision of the management; it is also the decision of the Parent-Teacher Association,” Some 40 percent of 1,050 students in the co-educational school are Muslims.

    New £16M Hindu Temple Opens In Wembley By Catrin Nye Wembley's newest looming landmark has opened it doors after 14 years of construction. It is the £16m Shree Sanatan Hindu Mandir, which loosely translates as the all-inclusive temple. There is none of the metal core most buildings have and, instead, it has been built using ancient techniques based on Hindu scriptures. The method dates back thousands of years and was used to construct the world famous Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Many of the temple's component pieces have been hand carved in limestone in the tiny town of Sola - located...

    Those who argue that all religions are essentially the same reveal the fact that they know little about these very different belief systems. The worldview of Christianity is, for example, radically different from the belief structure of Buddhism (some forms of which may actually claim to resist the very idea of beliefs). These differences in belief systems are apparent in Lisa Miller's recent article for Newsweek. As she explains, "A million-plus Hindus live in the United States, a fraction of the billion who live on Earth. But recent poll data show that conceptually, at least, we are slowly becoming more...

So one morning 15 days ago, Digal, 42, finally gave in and lowered his head. A barber shaved off his hair, holy water was sprinkled on him, and in a chatter of mantras, he was made a Hindu again. He could now have his life back, village leaders said. Mobs of hundreds of Hindu chauvinists have ravaged villages in Orissa’s hilly central...

If Barack Obama were to set his mind to it, he could heal much of the damage this peculiar institution wrought on our national soul. This great and tragic error that must be given justice. Obama is the best person in the world who can recognize, remember and honor the deaths of 125 million and the enslavement of tens of millions of people. His unique qualifications can be found in his names. Until he was 20 years old, he went by the first name Barry. Then he...

Fifteen of those injured in the clashes on Sagar island, at the confluence of the Ganges and the sea, were policemen. Supporters of the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) and local Muslim villagers clashed after the RSS set up a camp in the area. This caused unease amongst Muslims, who have a large population on the island. The RSS is active throughout India and is the ideological fountainhead of India's main opposition party Bharatiya Janata Party...

    Pakistan and its nuclear arsenal catastrophically may fall into the hands of jihadists. But the South Asian version of jihad is a less familiar but no less fearsome variant of the war directed at the Great Satan America, and the Little Satan, Israel. At one billion people, Hindus, the majority of whom live in the Indian sub-continent, constitute the third largest religion in the world after two billion Christians and 1.5 billion Muslims. Yet, their numbers have not spared Hindus from ongoing, systematic Muslim attacks in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Indeed, the jihad against India's non-Muslims has accelerated within the...

    Somalia is officially an Islamic state and conversion is prohibited. The country has a population of approximately 8.3 million, nearly all of them Sunni Muslims. There is a small, extremely low-profile Christian community. According to the International Religious Freedom Report 2006 issued by the US State Department last Friday, proselytizing for any religion except Islam is prohibited in Puntland and Somaliland and effectively blocked by informal social consensus elsewhere in the country. Somalia has had no government since the fall of Siad Barre in 1991. The Union of Islamic Courts (UIC), which grew out of individual courts' efforts to establish...

    LEICESTER: Conservative Party leader David Cameron took many by surprise by turning up at a religious function of prominent Indian preacher Morari Bapu in Leicester and lavishing praise on Britain's Hindu community. Cameron's party has an image problem within Britain's Asian community, which feels more comfortable with the policies of the Labour party. For several years, Cameron's predecessors have been trying to increase their support within the community, to little effect. On Friday, Cameron travelled to the Soar Valley Community College in Leicester, where Morari Bapu has been reciting Ramkatha (excerpts from Hindu epic Ramayana ) - from July 15...

    Why is the site disputed? Many believe that Ayodhya, in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, is the birthplace of one of the most revered deities in Hinduism, Lord Rama. Ayodhya is mentioned in several Hindu scriptures and has been a place of holy pilgrimage for centuries. Why is the dispute over Ayodhya so dangerous? Militant Hindus demolished the 16th-century Babri mosque in 1992, vowing to replace it with a Hindu temple to Rama. They say they were justified in destroying the mosque because there used to be a Hindu temple marking Rama's birthplace on that spot before. The mosque...

    NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is facing growing pressure to take a tough stand against Pakistan for rising incidents of terrorist violence in India. Sources in the Congress said the leadership is disappointed with Singh’s tame address to the nation on Wednesday, in which he did not mention Pakistan. Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma was equally cautious in a televised statement on Thursday. The issue may be raised at the core committee’s weekly meeting, which gives Sonia Gandhi and the PM a chance to exchange views. The meeting was scheduled to take place today but may...

    TANK, Pakistan (Reuters) - Pakistan's military airdropped pamphlets this week over towns in restive tribal regions near the Afghan border urging tribesmen to shun "foreign terrorists", saying they were part of a Hindu and Jewish plot. The pamphlets were dropped over Wana, the main town in South Waziristan, and Miranshah in North Waziristan as part of a campaign to win support among tribesmen who have shown sympathy for both Taliban and remnants of al Qaeda living among them. A Reuters reporter in Tank, a town close to the boundary with the semi-autonomous tribal agency of South Waziristan, obtained one of...

    It's been nearly a month since Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakahan blamed "Zionists and neo-cons" for "manipulating" President Bush into invading Iraq - before blasting "wicked Jews" in Hollywood for promoting "lesbianism [and] homosexuality." Yet, outside of a few newspapers in Chicago, the same press that showers positive coverage on Farrakhan's Million Man marches has yet to get around to covering his Feb. 26 Saviours Day speech. "These neo-cons and Zionists have manipulated Bush and the American government and our boys and girls are dying in Iraq and in Afghanistan for the cause of Israel, not for the cause...

    By Ron Banerjee Friday, February 17, 2006 The global reaction to the recent cartoons of Muhammad in Denmark is part of a familiar pattern. In 2004, a Dutch filmmaker named van Gogh was shot dead by Islamic fanatics because he made a film which dared to question the treatment of women in Islam. Similarly, global violence and death threats accompanied the publication of Salman Rushdie’s book, the Satanic Verses.

    "We have mentioned previously that the contemporary world now consists of three camps: Judeoamerica (with Britain), the Muslim world, and the indifferent rest of the world which does not want to go to war over the Middle East. Culturally, Judeoamerica in fact includes most of Western Europe (and increasing numbers of Eastern Europeans). The culture of Judeoamerica since the 1960s has been shaped by hedonism and by the belief that wisdom (or its modern equivalent: “satisfaction”) derives solely from experience and from physical stimuli such as wealth, power, sex, the violation of traditional taboos, altered states of mind, etc. The...

    The campaign against the alleged harassment of Hindus in Russia by the Orthodox Church and the Mayor of Moscow is getting more intense in Britain. Ashok Kumar, MP is launching the "Defend Russian Hindus Campaign" at the House of Commons in January. There was umbrage here when it was learnt that Archbishop Nikon wrote a letter to the Mayor of Moscow urging him not to allow the construction of a Hindu temple in Moscow because according to him, Lord Krishna who is worshipped by the Hindu community was an "evil demon". "Such untenable words in an age where interfaith harmony...
