HINDU SWAYAMSEVAK SANGH (UK) CONDEMNS ATTACKS ON HINDU COMMUNITY
26th September, 2022
Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (UK) strongly condemns the ongoing use of violence and verbal incitement and attacks on Hindu temples, individuals and their property in Leicester, Birmingham and other cities in recent days. These were fuelled by fake news and falsehoods on social media which were sadly also picked up and repeated by mainstream media as well. The police and other authorities have also confirmed that this was due to misleading information being circulated.
Such attacks are an assault on the British values of free speech, democracy and fairness and to try to paint Hindu views as anti any other religion is simply false.
HSS (UK) is against all forms of bigotry and extremism.
We call for peace and calm to prevail and for all communities to work together in the spirit of Vasudaiva Kutumbakam – the whole world is one family.
