In December 2020 there were over 100 incidents of Hindu Temples being attacked and desecrated, sacred icons and murti's destroyed, in the Christianist dominated state of Andhra Pradesh alone. British Christian Colonialist Parliamentarians decide to hold a debate on the "attacks on Christians in India".
Hundreds if not thousands of British Hindus have objected to the consistently biased and condescending orientation of the BBC, particularly when it comes to reporting on matters pertaining to Hindus and especially India. And yet nothing changes. The condescending attitude that "the BBC always knows more about Hindus than Hindus" persists, to our detriment.
The evidence clearly indicates that the Indian State has been discriminating against the indigenous people of India, and especially the Hindu community, for the best part of 500 years. The "more Hindu" the greater the discrimination.
This House believes that the V&A's "Colonial Loot" Collection should be returned to India
The V & A Museum which houses the ill gotten gains of the British East India Company, is an Alladins cave of Stolen Loot. Isnt it time to give back what is obviously not theirs? Reparations are clearly due - Should they be Hard or as Rajiv Malhotra ji advises, Soft? Who has the moral authority to adjudicate on this issue and where does the power to decide this matter reside? Does the fact that the British can repeatedly dismiss this issue out of hand, not demonstrate the existence of "White Colonialist Privilege"?
We at GHF think that its time that the British Hindu community engaged with this issue - Lets send our Devi Devtas home and give unfetterred access to our ancestral cultural and historic heritage. ...
There are over a million Hindus in the UK, 3/4 generations of cultural investment in integration, cohesion, not to mention pouring taxes into the Exchequer! And yet it feels as though whenever we interact with the institutions or the Establishment, we are treated with contempt. How many times have political parties and Government departments made decisions, convened Committees etc without even mention the Hindu Community ? The Home Offices Hate Crime reports, Labours BAME review, CORAB's Religion Reports etc etc, the list goes on. The Hinduodic (Hindu-Hating) Caste Amendment was a classic example of how when it comes to matter, we are treated as a "Colonial Imported Labour Force" and treated with disdain.
So accepting that the Institutions of Politics, Education and Religion have a residual, thinly veiled colonialist contempt for Hindus, who is responsible and what are British Hindus going to do about it?
