Selected excerpts from the article:

“Today, Hindus have become the new Catholics and Jews. Across the political spectrum, Indian American candidates face slander that they harbor extremist links rooted in dual loyalty.”

Anti-India gadfly Pieter Friedrich , who accuses India’s founding father Mahatma Gandhi of everything from incest to ” white supremacy ” to promoting Adolf Hitler , has accused the likes of former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D – Ill.), congressional candidate Rishi Kumar, Department of Homeland Security adviser Sonal Shah, and a host of local candidates of having links to Indian intelligence, political parties, or extremists.”

“Friedrich is a nodal point for growing support for Sikh separatism in India, which appears to have its genesis in Pakistan . He has no clear and transparent source of income that explains the resources he brings to his campaigns against Indian American politicians.”

“Politicians should not throw Hindus under the bus to avoid manufactured controversy. It is time Republicans and Democrats jointly condemn the slander. And they should not be alone. Catholics and Jews, who have, at times, also experienced cheap bigotry in political discourse, should stand behind them to ensure that the cost of such tactics is felt not by their targets but by their perpetrators.”
