The Epistemicide and Colonization of Hinduism

DONATE HERE – Support Hindudvesha Mission

The Hindu Student Council at Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA, held a conference in May 2021 to discuss the pervasive phenomenon of Hindudvesha (Systemic Hinduphobia) in order to understand it and its consequences for Hindu Americans.

Dr. Meenakshi Jain and Jeffery D. Long, who are religious studies scholars focusing on the study of religions and philosophies of India, participated in the conference.  In the following video of the conference, Prof. Long provides discusses various aspects of Hindophobia – what it is, its underlying structure as well as its history.  Dr. Meenakshi Jain talks about the colonization of Hindus, including the colonization of their belief systems and culture. She elaborates specifically on the mass-scale destruction of the Hindu knowledge systems during India’s 1000 years of colonization and occupation by Islamic invaders and the British colonizers.

This article describes a recent act of ethnic killing of Hindus, which began on October 13, 2021, and continues to date. In this episode, 10 Hindus were brutally murdered, and 23 Hindu women and girls were raped. In addition, 1500 homes were burnt, 315 Hindu temples were vandalized or destroyed, and hundreds of Hindu businesses were burnt down or destroyed. Western media and human rights organizations have largely ignored the ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Bangladesh. Further, instead of admonishing the government of Bangladesh for not ensuring the safety and well-being of their non-Muslim citizens, they have focused their scorn attention on criticizing the Indian government’s efforts to provide citizenship to the victims of this ongoing ethnic cleansing in Bangladesh. It is time for Hindus worldwide to call out these media outlets and human rights organizations for giving a free pass to the Islamic Republic of Bangladesh and the radical Muslims of that country.
