According to PTI, the Georgia ‘Hinduphobia’ Legislation condemned Hinduphobia and anti-Hindu bigotry and stated that Hinduism is one of the world’s largest and oldest religions, with over 1.2 billion adherents in over 100 countries, and encompasses a diverse array of traditions and belief systems with values of acceptance, mutual respect, and peace.

“The challenges experienced by Hindu Americans in Georgia and the rest of the country via misleading, Hinduphobic narratives are badly harming a community that has been hardworking, law-abiding, and enriching the fabric of America,” stated CoHNA general secretary Shobha Swamy.

“We pleaded for their assistance in countering such intolerance, which promotes hatred and gives the impression that Hindus and persons of Indian heritage require special legislation and oversight due to charges of an innate proclivity to discriminate,” she said.

According to the resolution, there have been documented incidents of hate crimes against Hindu-Americans in several parts of the country over the last few decades. According to the resolution, individuals in academics who advocate the deconstruction of Hinduism and accuse its sacred texts and cultural traditions of violence and injustice intensify and institutionalise Hinduphobia.
