I heard a talk yesterday where the speaker — an expert on the Third Reich — did a lightning-fast ten bullet points of Nazism and Hindutva parallels. Gutting. #Hindutva

A fitting conclusion to the rich forum on the Hindu far right and what it shares with other far-right projects

We must think critically to undo the dehumanising project of #Hindutva. We have begun — Here is looking forward to more scholarship. tif.ssrc.org/2022/12/07/und…

“The judgment never poses the most basic question on Hindu claims about the site: Was Ram a real historical person? Larger Hindu majoritarian concerns were mirrored by the court’s utter lack of interest in Ram’s historicity.”

It's outrageous that @LifeAtLUMS forced students to disinvite Dr. Sultan Ahmad (a prominent Ahmadi scholar and a pediatrician by profession) as a panelist in a seminar on religious tolerance. Yes, a discussion on religious tolerance but one where Ahmadis are not tolerated!

It is unacceptable that while Rutgers University has an endowment of nearly $2 BILLION dollars, their workers are struggling to get by. I stand in strong solidarity with @ruaaup and the Coalition of Rutgers Unions who are fighting for fair wages, healthcare, and job security.
 
 
A priceless piece of Indian heritage, destroyed by an iconoclastic Hindu nationalist mob 30 years ago, today.

Caste is a key social identity and a primary form of social organizing and oppression. Yet too often, our diversity and inclusion efforts overlook caste inequities.

Here are 4 tips on how leaders can account for caste to create more inclusive workplaces.

Brown is the first Ivy League school to add caste to its campus-wide nondiscrimination policy.

This is a big deal and hopefully just the beginning of the push for caste equity on all American college campuses.

Could @Columbia have used a different picture? Sure, and they do in other versions of the poster. But the South Asia Institute is highlighting a martial image of Ram, quite distinct from typical devotional images. We welcome academic scrutiny.

This thread is from a far-right group.

But how would it read if it were from, say, a calm, reasonable organization that actually represented the diverse Hindu American community? #FixedIt

How do we encourage self-censoring academics in the West to use their academic freedom? It is easy to say but hard to do, tell them: Speak Up! Our rights aren't handed to us on a silver platter. If we don't use them, we'll lose them. Don't rely on the few loudest voices.

Due to a desire to counter China + Islamophobia, Western nations continue to underestimate the risks of Hindutva. Part of the job of academics is to alert people to those risks. (internal monologue -- preach it!)

personal experience of panel member -- students are being coached or informed by Hindu Right groups to use the language of offense against professors whose views on politics they dislike (or think they dislike, since many profs don't explicitly discuss this in class). Wow.

Very often, Hindutva attacks on academics are before anything has happened. Before an event, before speech, before publication. The goal is to silence and intimidate. Some of us still speak; others have been silenced or have fallen in line.

Call here (by a member of the Indian American diaspora) for diaspora groups to speak-up more. If your Hinduism isn't violent Hindutva, speak up! Tell folks that Hindu nationalism's abuse of diversity language to actually reduce diversity and promote hate isn't the only view.

Academic freedom includes freedom for students. Right now, far-right Hindu American groups are infringing on students' academic freedom through a sort of mass harassment, saying that anything anti-Hindutva is hate speech. This creates a hostile environment for students.
