India has finally fought back against Woke culture and its attempts to demonise Bharat, Hinduism and Hindutva. India has spoken against the global Islamist and liberal lobby that looks to associate “right-wing” ideologies with those of violent extremism and “domestic terrorism”. India has spoken against the Democrat-led regime of the US and its sycophant forces around the world.
India has called on the United Nations to recognise ‘Hinduphobia’ along with other acts of religious hatred against Sikhism and Buddhism. India’s U.N. envoy T.S.Tirumurti said that the U.N.’s latest Global Counter-Terrorism strategy passed last year is full of flaws and is selective, and could reverse gains from the global consensus in the “war on terror” post 9/11.
Hinduphobia is not a fignment of the imagination of blowhard Hindu fanatics, it is a real form of prejudice and hatred. Hatred for Hindus is a development that in India, at least, requires no introduction with particular communities often making clear their outright disdain and hatred for Hindus. Given this particular community’s relatively large share in global demographics, Hinduphobia has also become an international problem. Hindus are regularly victims of hate crimes and racial slurs around the world – particularly in the West. The same is the case with Sikhs and all other Indic minorities. Whether it be Islamists, White Supremacists, or the hyberlolic left that turns the other way Hinduphobia has also skyrocketed in media and academic circles.
In India, the anti-Hindu Delhi riots of 2019 are clear examples of how these vested interests consider Hindu human rights as secondary. The question has long been asked that if India does not speak for Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains, who will?
India’s U.N. envoy T.S Tirumurti said, “In the past two years, several member states, driven by their political, religious and other motivations, have been trying to label terrorism into categories such as racially and ethnically motivated violent extremism, violent nationalism, right wing extremism, etc. This tendency is dangerous for several reasons.”
Next, Tirumurti – speaking as India’s representative to the United Nations, raised a very important point. He said that only religious phobias against “Abrahamic religions”: Islam, Christianity and Judaism had been named in the “Global Counter Terrorism Strategy’s” 7th review passed by the U.N. General Assembly in June 2021.
He added, “The emergence of contemporary forms of religiophobia, especially anti-Hindu, anti-Buddhist and anti-Sikh phobias is a matter of serious concern and needs attention of the U.N. and all member states to address this threat.” And in a scathing indictment of western media’s coverage of India and its “right wing” government, Tirumurti said that putting “labels” to “so-called” threats was “misleading and erroneous”.
By pushing the United Nations to recognise Hinduphobia as a hateful ideology, and by getting it to accept that there exists a palpable sense of hatred among many Sikhs and Buddhists – India is making a mark for itself in the ideological space of the world.
At last it is India that is taking the proactive stance because it has been the case that world leaders, activists and the United Nations too have occupied themselves with trying to contain ‘Islamophobia’ and seen that only as the most important segment of ‘human rights’ to uphold. All this happened as Indic communities suffered with their hurt and pain ignored.
India is drawing the world’s attention to the struggles of Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists, and all countries will be well advised to reconsider their attitudes towards Hinduphobia and to understand that India under Modi is a democracy that will no longer take insult to injury anymore.
